Malicious and slanderous accusations that are meant to cause public or financial harm will warrant temporary and possibly permanent banishment from the CASA boards.
If you have a gripe with an individual, company or organization, handle it through personal emails, not through the message board.
Posting slander while hiding behind anonymity is cause for suspicion and will result in deletion of the message and permanent banishment.
We're all creative people. Educating others on what to watch out for is sufficient. If you want to call attention to what you believe is unscrupulous activity, find a way to do it without naming names.
Do not use the Forums or Blogs to advertise services or goods that are not directly related to the filmmaking and performing arts industry.
NO CAUSTIC BEHAVIOR
CASA was founded to create the positive spirit of community. This is where local writers, actors and filmmakers can go for information and friendly advice from their peers.
CASA managers reserve the right to ban any member who promotes negativity on the boards. Voicing opposite opinions to the boards is welcome, doing so in a consistently negative or inflammatory manner is not.
NO OFF-TOPIC MESSAGES
These boards are for filmmaking and theatre-related discussions ONLY.
The CASA Site Owner and Administrators reserve the right to delete without warning or explanation any and all discussions that are off-topic.
If you want to advertise services that are not related to filmmaking or theater production you are welcome to include a text box with information and a link to your website on your My Page.
Use of the Blog feature on your profile page (My Page) to post non-topic information is not allowed as all Blogs are shared in the Multi-Media pages.
CASA managers reserve the right to ban any member that uses the CASA boards to promote political or ideological agendas, unless they clearly pertain to filmmaking, acting, writing, or the local performing arts community.
If you DO have a politically-based topic (i.e.; notice of a grassroots efforts to increase government funding for the arts.), keep your post non-partisan.
DO NOT SAY: we need more funding because of the lack of insight from the X-party
DO SAY: what you hope you or they will accomplish by the efforts
