Short Version - (1) Be Topical. (2) Be Original. (3) Be Nice.

Long version:
(1) Stay on topic - If the discussion wanders off topic or into nonsensical rambling, I will remove your comments. Repeated abuse will result in you being banned from posting here. If you post blatant spam here, I will ban you from this forum AND... I will submit you for removal from ALL Disqus forums.

(2) Be original in your postings. I will not tolerate lengthy cut and pastes, especially if you are not the author of said material. There is such a thing as copyright law, and I will quickly ban those who attempt to pass off the writings of others as their own.

(3) Please be nice... we all know what this means. I will not let those with "internet balls" turn my forums into gripe sessions, heated arguments or slanderous turd-hurling contests. There are no stupid questions... (okay maybe there are, but please remember that not everyone is a "survival expert"). Therefore, all questions should be considered valid as long as they meet the criteria of rules 1 and 2.
