On Line Rules Online Rules

Treat others how you wish to be treated!

  • Please share your knowledge, don’t keep it all bottled up inside. That’s what the club and this website is all about; and it’s not just outboard knowledge, but computer knowledge too.
  • Cyberspace is just an extension of us, your quick emails or postings are affecting folks at the receiving end – please be courteous. If you’re in a lively discussion, please think twice about what you’re going to post for everyone else to read. Often your posting may say more about you, than your topic matter.
  • Adhere to the same standards of behavior online that you follow in real life. If you wouldn’t normally walk up to someone at a meet and call them a liar, please don’t do so online. If there’s a possibility someone wrote something a little hotter than intended – discretion is the better part of valor.
  • Keep discussions civil. Even two parties with strongly opposing opinions can have mature threads without reverting to name calling. Flaming posts will be removed at the discretion of the moderators/webmasters. Repeated abuse of the message board may result in a temporary ban of your AOMCI online privileges.
