While everyone is welcome to participate in this discussion board, contributions must adhere to the following guidelines. We consider it a right and duty to remove any user from the discussion board who, in our opinion, violates any of these guidelines.

1. Postings should relate specifically to the issues raised by the topic of the discussion thread.

2. We absolutely insist on the preservation of a safe space in which productive discourse can take place. No disrespectful or misogynist statements will be tolerated.

3. Absolutely no personal attacks. Please address your criticisms to arguments, not to people. It's fine to disagree, but you must do so with respect.

4. Please use only one username. It is misleading if you contribute to a thread or more than one thread using different usernames.

5. Absolutely no use of profanities or obscenities. Similarly, abusive, harassing, or threatening remarks will not be tolerated. Remember that the purpose of this educational opportunity is to create discourse on these important issues concerning violence against women.
