A few suggestions for participating in our forums:

Hang around ... Get a feel for the "spirit" of the place.

Read more than you post.  Read the entire thread before posting

CRW tends towards being a “ PG rated Facebook & Google Group.  Please post accordingly. Profanity, vulgarity in posts are not welcome

No bashing - of people, other riding clubs or other Facebook Groups.  It's always OK to post what you like about someone or something. It's easy to get carried away and say something in print that can be misunderstood. Being respectful is always welcomed.

Allow newbies a mistake or two.  Be gracious, we were all new here once.

Read with a positive perspective.  Understanding the spirit of CRW, read posts with a positive slant.  If a post rubs you the wrong way, consider that perhaps you're reading what's not there, or that the poster isn't saying what they mean clearly. Assume that we're going to agree in the end, and just cut to the chase ... grin!

Post with a positive perspective. Negativity invites challenge and confrontation. Assume the nobler intent of the post to which you are responding before reacting.

Please only post that which you would say face to face to someone.  This simple guideline takes much heat away from the fire.

Not every post to you requires a response. Sometimes it's best just to let it be.

Be respectful of others While everyone is entitled to an opinion there are some topics that have proven to be contentious in an open Facebook /Google group.  Please keep in mind, CRW is a bicycle group. Criticisms and ridicule of other peoples' politics, religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, are just a few of these volatile topics. Think before you post.  But if you choose to post don't be offended if a moderator pulls the plug on the thread before it gets out of hand.

No promotions or spam. Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam, & irrelevant links are not allowed.
