climate that allows everyone to fully express themselves and follow their
interests even when those interests are controversial is the healthiest
environment for everyone. Challenging opinions and a variety of
seriously-taken ideas encourages questioning and intellectual growth.
ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH?
In tight crowded places there are always more rules about what people can
and can't say for the sake of friendliness, safety, and civility. Like
Paul Harvey once said, "Self-government without self discipline, just
doesn't work." While we encourage open discussion and the free
exchange of ideas and opinions, there have to be some limitation on what
types of posts are allowed. Any posts that are outside of the bounds of
these rules will be edited or removed at the discretion of the
administrator and moderators.
AND FOUL LANGUAGE
Language is a tool, and like any tool it can be misused. Foul language is
the use of swear words is expressly prohibited on these forums. Offending
posts, will moderator's be deleted, or edited.
Postings that contain questionable or explicit material (IE pornography,
or overtly sexual references) will immediately be removed. Please remember
that this is a public board that is accessible by cadets/minors. Before
posting, consider if you would want you own child to read what you are
writing. This includes text, pictures or other visual material. Failure to
abide with this rule will result in immediate action by the administrator.
any post that is deemed by moderators to be sensitive in nature will be
removed from the boards. Items falling into this category may include (but
are not limited to): Federal or State regulated materials regarding
ongoing criminal investigations, security sensitive information, personal
information, and confidential materials.
any post that contains "hate materials" such as racial, ethnic
or religious slurs (amongst others) will be immediately deleted. It is the
desire of the staff that this site be an open forum where members can come
to exchange ideas and discussion without fear, bias, or attack, regardless
of their religious, political, personal or sexual beliefs and practices.
There are some topics that just get too heated for rational conversation.
Due to the nature and scope of the Civil Air Patrol's mission, as well as
its status as a not-for-profit organization, political and religious
conversations are best left to other arenas. Exempted from this policy are
those topics that fall in compliance with established CAP moral leadership
programs and documentation.
Avoid personal attacks. If you don't agree with what someone posted,
debate the issue in the post... not the person that posted it. You may
attack specific points that the poster has made as long as the attacks do
not get too personal. Severe personal attacks or threats will not be
tolerated and are grounds for immediate expulsion from the forums. Once
again moderators will use their own discretion in this area.
Some examples of board disruption might be (not limited to): harassing
other members, flaming/personal attacks, or incitement without cause. All
are cause for deletion and/or banning from the forum. Any posts made with
the sole purpose of soliciting an emotional response will be deleted or
to comply with these rules may result in the editing/deletion of posts or,
disciplinary action, including the termination of user accounts without
