TOPICS OF DISCUSSION:
While these discussion forums encourage a wide range of opinions, please keep
your posts focused on the topic of the forum or site section in which you are
submitting your message. Each forum has a different topic, so what is
appropriate in one forum or thread may not be appropriate in another. Do not
discuss problems that you may have against a particular company's way of
conducting business and or other issues that may be better dealt with them
directly. Direct support forums are to discuss questions or issues with the
particular product they sell or support. No discussion in a political,
religious or sexual orientation will be allowed to be discussed.
Please do not double post the same topic in multiple forum sections. This
creates confusion and repetitive replies.
The Member Blog section is not meant for advertisements. Only Cat or Kitten
related Blogs and Blog Postings will be allowed.
Please upload any files that you have created for sharing to the download
section in your member profile. Then direct users to your profile to
download it. Do not upload files in the forums; you can add a link to the
location of the file to the discussion in the forums.
