    Public Address to Recent Events

    I would like to thank everybody for being a part of our reefing community. In the last couple of days I have been inundated with phone calls, text messages, and PMs. I apologize for not getting back to some of you in a timely manner. I hope this will help to shed some light on the recent events that have taken place. Please accept our apologies if we are unable to go into greater detail. I would like to assure everybody who is concerned that the BOD of this club, who are all volunteers, take very seriously when any situations arise that we must reprove, suspend, or expel any person(s) from this site. It is not until after much thought, dicussion, and deliberation that the board take any action. Below you will find a list of rules and that were examined most recently due to the actions of certain individuals.

    2.14 (a) The Board of Directors is authorized to reprove privately, suspend from membership for a period of not more than one year, or to censure, suspend, or expel from membership any member of this Association for good cause.

    (b) ''Good cause,'' as used in this section, means any of the following:

    (1) Any conduct that brings the Association into public disrepute or violates the purposes for which this Association is formed.

    (2) Any willful failure or refusal to abide by the Articles of Association, Bylaws, or Rules of use of the Website.

    (3) Any other matter or conduct which a 2/3 majority of the Board of Directors deems to constitute "Good cause".

    (c) A ''private reproval'' is a reproval in letter or e-mail form, from a member of the Board of Directors of the Association or any moderator of the website.

    (d) A ''suspension'' may be imposed at the discretion of the Board of Directors for two or more instances of conduct constituting good cause. A suspension of less than two months will not require the return of a pro rata portion of the member's dues. Upon a suspension a member's access to the Website may be terminated or limited in any manner determined by the Board of Directors for the period of the suspension.

    (e) An ''expulsion'' requires four or more instances of conduct constitute good cause and a vote of a 2/3 majority of the Board of Directors. Upon expulsion, the membership of the member in this Association is immediately and conclusively terminated and the member's rights of access to the Website shall be terminated.

    2. Cursing or Swearwords. The use of cursing or swearwords is discouraged and shall be kept to a minimum, and is prohibited when done so in a derogatory and/or inflammatory manner. Please keep in mind that this is an open internet site where proper etiquette is the standard to abide by.

    3. No Attacks / Retaliation of any kind against a member, or group of members (including slander). Any attack or retaliation, provoked or not, is absolutely not tolerated in either public or private posts. No post(s) of a slanderous nature is allowed on any forum. For example, the posting of negative and/or false statement(s) with no purpose other than the intent of harm.

    4. If you are a long-standing member, please act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather than attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate message board usage and etiquette.

    6. No spamming. Spamming is characterized by the initiation of threads or posts that contribute nothing to a forum, be it off topic or on topic. Examples include: empty post bodies, post bodies with few words that have no relation to the current thread or discussion and those posts that state they are spam, either to annoy or increase a member's post count. This determination is made by the forum Moderator or Administrator and is not up for discussion.

    10. Misc. Instant Ban By Admin: This is listed for our staff as a form of Instant Banning for any content that would deem immediate action but does not have a specific topic. This is at an admin /moderator's discretion and can be for any reason above and beyond those outlined above or below.

    11. Attacks / Retaliation / Slander: Either of these in either public or private postings will result in, but not limited to a warning. Please remember that administrators do have access to all private posts to verify if necessary!

    16. CVR reserves the right to change or alter these rules at any time without any notification. It is the poster's responsibility to stay up to date with these rules. Please note that an Administrator's word is final.

    It is in these types of situations that we must remind ourselves why we are all here in the first place. To be able to share our interest in this hobby and have fun. All the other extraneous situations that may arise serve only to take away from these reasons.
