What are the forum guidelines?


Commons Connect Forums - Guidelines for Posting

  • If you need to respond to or send a message to just one person, please do not send it to the group, unless you think it is something the group needs to know.
  • Respect the privacy and integrity of everyone. Don't publish information not already in the public realm without permission.
  • Do not forward (or post) conversations, particularly to news outlets or other broadcasting media, without the writer's permission.
  • Read and edit your email before sending.
  • Be respectful.
  • Seek honest dialogue.
  • No name-calling, flaming, or other attacks.
  • Refrain from language that incites aggression.
  • Do not copy posts to non-members or other forums or bulletin boards without permission from the posting author.
  • Include a personal introduction or summary when posting published news items or petitions. Do not simply forward material.
  • Other than WMMarketplace, our forums are non-commercial. Please donate to West Marin Commons to help support this non-profit project.
