2.3 Keep Topics within Forum Scope; Posting
Participants must limit posts to topics within the geographic area or issues of
a forum's scope and purpose. Requests by the Forum Manager to bring discussions
within the scope of the written charter and purpose of the forum must be heeded
or warnings may be issued. Participants may not post messages about topics that
are specifically prohibited by a forum's charter. If in doubt about the
appropriateness of a topic, check privately with the Forum Manager before
posting. Otherwise, the Forum Manager may issue an official warning if your
post is deemed out-of-scope. Local forums may set a technical limit on the
number of posts sent each day per participant (typically 2 in 24 hours).
Posting the same or similar message (cross-posting) to multiple forums may
generate a warning if not adequately customized within the (local) scope of
