Discussion Board Structure and Guidelines

The purpose of this discussion board is to consider the principal issues of Privacy in Cyberspace.

Discussion Structure
The discussion board is divided into sections that correspond to the parts of the course.

Discussion Guidelines
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 posts that, in our opinion, violate any of these guidelines.

  1. Postings should relate specifically to the issues raised by the topic of the discussion thread.
  2. Absolutely no personal attacks. Please address your criticisms to arguments, not to people. It's fine to disagree, but do so with respect.
  3. Please use only one username. Anonymity is fine, but it is misleading if you contribute to a thread or more than one thread using different usernames.
  4. Please aim to keep threads on topic.
  5. Absolutely no use of profanities or, obscenities. Similarly, spiteful, hateful, abusive, harassing, or threatening remarks will not be tolerated. Please keep the discussion considered and scholarly.
