MORE TO COME BUT FOR NOW...
Please remember that this is a community.
While we are all here for the same reason, the betterment
of the Comic Industry, it is very likely that we all have different
ideas on how to accomplish this. Here the Golden Rule applies
in spades, if you disagree with someone, please speak up but
do it with the same respect that you would want shown to you.
Debate can be a great way to learn or at least understand a different
viewpoint but if others are afraid to post for fear of being ridiculed,
then the whole foundation of the CBIA will be shaken. And since
this is truly an Alliance of the Comic Industry, it is more
important than ever that we forge a strong working relationship
and rid ourselves of all the fingerpointing that has undermined
the industry to this point.
In order to keep the signal to noise ratio as high as possible,
meaning most of the flaming and spam-type postings prevalent in
other forums and USENet and also ensure that sensitive industry
topics are not turned into free-for-alls with the public at large,
Delphi allows me to restrict membership.
Although I do run the forum as a dictatorship, meaning that
I get the final say on things, I make every attempt to be a benevolent
dictator and nobody has ever been removed without warning. That
said, I do reserve the right to remove, temporarily or permanently,
any user and/or content for any reason or no reason, if I deem
it to be in the best interest of the forum at large.
Additionally please do not take it upon yourself to "discipline"
other members, no matter how helpful you mean to be. If you feel
that someone has crossed the line with a post please contact me
or one of the following authorized moderators for the forum. Failure
to do so may cause you to be gagged or removed. It's not worth
it and only leads to arguments and hurt feelings.
To contact a moderator about a post, click REPLY
in that post and where it says TO:, click on
the OTHERS button and when prompted type in the

croll down and click on the REPLY VIA E-MAIL - only "To:"
