    Default RULES OF CONDUCT: IR's New World Order


    As Administrator, I've come to realize that we all need to renew and refresh our understanding of the Rules of The Squirrel Board. These rules apply to old members, new members, and administrators alike, and they will be enforced from now on, without exception. We are a family, yes, united in our love for squirrels. However, unlike a family, we do not have to tolerate disruptive personalities and will not be doing so anymore. I take complete responsibility for being overly tolerant in the past, and for most of the chaos that ensued.

    Please read and remember the following...

    RULES OF CONDUCT:

    1. Administration reserves the right to edit or delete any thread that is deemed problematic, inappropriate, or bad for TSB. This is not open for debate.

    2. Any post that attacks another member is subject to deletion and the poster is subject to a timeout or permanent ban. Administration reserves the right to judge what defines an "attack", and this is not open for debate.

    3. Sharing or forwarding PM's or any part of a PM, except to Administration, is not allowed and will not be tolerated.

    4.
    Every member of TSB will follow the General Rules as stated in Squerly's sticky at the top of this Forum. Anyone who breaks, bends or disregards these rules WILL be banned for whatever time frame is deemed appropriate.

    With such an adverse group of people as there are on TSB there is bound to be difference of opinions, what I have found to be personally disturbing is the lack of tact among some expressing that difference. What one may have to say could be very valid AND important, but I feel it gets lost in translation when its foundation is laid on the attack of another member.

    Read, Understood and Agree!

    Compared to some other boards that I USED to belong to. This one is very mello. Sometimes chaos erupt on here though. But I have seen much much worse. I think this board is very well taken care of.

    BANNED members will not be re-instated, and cannot join under another name.
    Some people simply cannot play well with others on an internet Forum, and there is no reason why those of us who can should have to put up with them.

    Number 5 was left off.

    I would like to insert another rule here, in light of incidents which have been recently brought to my attention:

    5. Harassment, cyberstalking, or emailing a member OFF TSB with hostile intent will NOT be tolerated and the offending member WILL be banned for life. Don't think because you are going around the back door that we won't find out who you are. This is the INTERNET. NOTHING is secret, and NOBODY is anonymous anymore.

    I don't know what happened here, but on another Forum Ive been active on, one of the problems is purely the medium. All we have is words in black and white, no non-verbal cues to go by. But - polite is polite. We don't have to agree on everything, but we should respect each others views.
    I am glad I found TSB! Im getting answers to questions I couldn't get anywhere else. Thank you and keep up the great work.

    Annie you're so right: the medium is truly the biggest problem. Second is all of our egos when they overtake our common sense and civility. Glad you found us!!

    Please also remember that truth can sometimes be cutting, and in an emergency situation, can seem cruel. Most here do try to present a "Politically Correct" tone, but at the same time, there are some who are bound by laws and their duties to their licenses. There are situations that do crop up that put many rehabbers in direct violation of the states that issued their licenses. A personal attack is never warranted in any circumstance, but sometimes we do have to take the gloves off, to try to "wake up" a member who is doing wrong to the squirrels in their care. I myself was put into that situation recently. I am here for the squirrels of this board, not for the members feelings. If I see something wrong, or an offer for help that is refused, when it is more than obvious that help is needed, you can bet your bottom dollar I will call the person on it (gender and age not withstanding). I will qualify this by saying that I always get the blessing from the Administrators beforehand though, because I am aware of how cutting my remarks can be. It is never meant to hurt anyone, just to try to shock them into realizing that what they have done is not conducive to healthy squirrels.
