Rule 1.1.1 -- Positive Contribution Rule

Before clicking on the “Submit” button, you must ensure that your post makes a positive contribution to the Canadian Delica community. What constitutes a “positive” contribution? Here are some guidelines…
  • Write your post in a manner that is respectful of other members. Your post may disagree with details contained in the posts by other members. However, when responding to a post that you disagree with, always clearly specify which points you disagree with, and always supply your reason for disagreeing. Correct any inaccuracies, but do so in a respectful manner that shows that you understand that the inaccuracies were posted in good faith.

    When the subject of a thread centers on a dispute between forum members, posts should only be made by persons with first-hand knowledge of the incident or situation. Please note that if you happen to be a motor vehicle dealer, weighing in on a dispute between a competitor and their clients will not be tolerated.

    "For Sale" posting (for vehicles and parts) should not be posted in forum threads, but should be posted in Delica Trader instead. Please note that general business advertising messages in forum threads (e.g., "No-HST Blowout Event This Weekend", "Come To Us For the Best Service In Town", etc) do not meet the "positive contribution" test, and will be removed.
Any member who does not adhere to Rule 1.1.1 will be issued a formal warning and, if the behaviour persists, will be banned from

Clarification on "Site Warnings"

Site administrators or moderators will issue formal warnings in cases where a user fails to conform with Site Rule 1.1.1.

The most frequently-issued warnings relate to posts focusing on interpersonal or inter-company disputes (matters that ought to be dealt with in private, but are instead posted to the public forum).

If you see a thread going "sideways" in a negative way, please report the thread but DO NOT get yourself drawn into the discussion. If a block of material needs to be removed from the site, we do so indiscriminately (we simply don't have the time, patience, or interest to apportion blame). If you choose to continue posting to such a thread, don't complain to us when you receive a formal warning.

Three warnings issued to any user within a 365-day period will result in account deactivation.
