Mission Statement and Guiding Principles

I decided it was time to define some parameters on what is acceptable for my website and to set up some rules for myself and others.

 The first rule is the Golden Rule or the Golden Law; Treat others in the same manner that you wish to be treated

 Profanity, sexual content, illicit activities, harassment or threats are not welcome here

 Attacks against children are not acceptable, attacks against the parents are fine as long as you stick with rule one and two…

 Carefully review screenshots and redact personal information not relevant to the story, i.e. Names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.

 Just because something is legal does not make it ethical. A higher moral compass is needed to know the difference (refer to rule one).

 Religion and politics… Both subjects should be strictly avoided. Tolerance of all religious or political beliefs is mandatory

 Above all, this is a learning experience and should be approached as such.
