Our guidelines for posting comments are similar to those for the Tweeters birding mailing list for Washington State: please be civil in your comments, don’t use obscene or swear words, don’t attack or belittle others, and don’t post advertisements.
Also please avoid notoriously worked-over or inflammatory topics. We can’t say it better than the Tweeters guidelines, so we will paraphrase them:
This website is not a forum for airing opinions about the validity of any one particular belief system or lifestyle preference compared to another. Specific examples of inappropriate topics include:
- cats (pro or con)
- hunting (pro or con)
- religion (including intelligent design/creationism vs. evolution)
- partisan politics
You are expected to exercise judgment and common sense by steering clear of hot-button issues and inflammatory rhetoric.
