This website practices good netiquette.
Simply put ... netiquette are well-established common practices, manners, customs and established procedures of internet culture and discourse. It generally means being polite on the Internet.
Postings by unregistered (non-CIDAA Forum members) are permitted… and queued for review and approval by moderators before they can be seen by anyone else. This is not a board for use by all members of the public as they see fit. This is a board existing for the pleasure and benefit of Dues Paying CIDAA members. If you desire to post something as a guest, use your correct name and e mail address so that we may contact you (under some circumstances) to determine if in FACT that it was YOU who made the specific posting. We do have to deal with imposters in this cyber world!
Registered members can peruse and post to many topics other than those the public can see, including meeting info, job postings, hospitalization/birth notices, CIDAA memorabilia for sale, thousands of pages of archived postings, and lots more. The CIDAA members user list includes personal details members choose to post about themselves, sort of an online email addressbook with links to profiles that can include a photo of the member, favorite saying or life motto, and other things that will make you smile.
