Follow the Terms and Conditions. Make sure you keep it civil. Courtesy is mandatory. Don't make it personal, and if someone else tries to make it
personal, don't take it personally. It isn't a competition.
If you see a violation, don't respond in kind. Alert on it and let the staff handle it.
Remember, we're all here to learn and share. Once it ceases to be pleasant, it becomes pointless. We all have enough stress in our lives. ATS
shouldn't add to it. If it is, you're probably doing something incorrectly.
There are all kinds of people. Some find entertainment in doing things we're just not going to permit. Don't get caught up in it.
There is no "official" stance on anything other than the Terms and Conditions. The staff is all volunteer and drawn from the membership. The only
staff member who didn't start out as a member is Simon Gray, who started the site.
The opinions about virtually all subjects and topics are as diverse among the staff as they are the board as a whole, which would make it practically
impossible for us to moderate on any platform other than the Terms and Conditions.
And there you go.
