Posting content to the discussion forum
Stay on topic. This discussion forum is offered to help members communicate with Charlottesville Bicycle Club’s community more effectively. Therefore, unless otherwise noted, do not add submissions about other topics. Stay within the subject for the discussion category identified on the discussion forum site.
Be polite and lawful. Only post content and comments you would be proud to have associated with your true name by people whose respect you seek. Post nothing that is libelous, defamatory, indecent, harmful, harassing, intimidating, threatening, hateful, objectionable, discriminatory, abusive, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, sexually explicit, or offensive in a sexual, racial, cultural, or ethnic context.
No polls, petitions, or spam. This is a non-commercial discussion forum for a limited purpose. Therefore, do not post polls, petitions, or any links to or ads for any commercial products or services. Do not include any such links in your signature used in the discussion forum.
Disclose Any Compensation. You should generally avoid posting links to other sites as they tend to detract from the purpose of a discussion forum. However, if you do post a URL because you feel it directly responds to or answers another forum participant’s question or concern, you must disclose if you receive any compensation, either from posting the link or from any purchases through the site you posted. For example you should disclose that “I may receive some form of compensation, financial or otherwise, from my recommendation or link” when that is the case.
Submit only your own original messages or ideas.
Respect and Protect Confidentiality. When referring to a child, use only that child’s first initial or a pseudonym initial (such as S for a son, D for a daughter, etc.). Never post anything with a child/youth’s actual name or personally identifiable information.
