For those who may not have reviewed them recently, here is a cut and paste of the official WGA Terms of Use for our forums. This may not directly address the current controversy, but it should be a guide for all of us in choosing what we post in the forums.

(a) Upload, post or otherwise transmit any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, slanderous, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, embarrassing, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable to any other person or entity.

(e) Upload, post or otherwise transmit any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation.

(f) Upload, post or otherwise transmit any content that contains viruses or any other computer code, files or programs which interrupt, destroy, limit the functionality of, or cause damage to the Site or any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment.

(g) Disrupt the normal flow of dialogue or otherwise act in a manner that negatively affects other users' ability to engage in real time exchanges.

The Board of Directors has passed the following motion:

Whereas the WGA forums exist for the free flow of information about geocaching in Wisconsin; whereas individuals who use the forums agree to abide by the Terms of Use when they enter the forums; and whereas violations of the Terms of Use can hamper free flow of information about geocaching in Wisconsin.

Be it resolved that the Board will implement a policy of progressive action for any individual who violates the Terms of Use.

Be it further resolved that progressive action will follow these guidelines:

1st violation: Written warning.
2nd violation: Two week suspension of WGA membership privileges.
3rd violation: Indefinite suspension of WGA membership privileges.
