All the normal principles of netiquette apply on this
board. Please keep your messages on topic. Behavior and language that
would be unwelcome within the borders of Fantasyland is quite unwelcome
here as well. Advertising or other attempts to use these boards for
financial gain are not permitted. Libel and slander will not be
tolerated. Personal attacks and attacks on providers of goods or
services are also prohibited.
Please respect the copyrights of others.
You may not repost messages from e-mail, other message boards, Usenet
newsgroups, Web sites, books, newspapers, magazines
or other sources without permission of the author/copyright holder of
that material, except for brief quotations as provided for by the
fair use principles of U.S. copyright law. Posts and/or message threads
that violate these standards will be removed or
edited without apology.
Within the boundaries stated above you
may feel free to discuss any appropriate topic, even if
it happens to be a glowing review of a travel guide
published by another company (so long, of course, as it's
an independent consumer evaluation). In fact, we
encourage this sort of discussion and comparison as it is
helpful to vacationers.
Although most users of these boards are
not trained journalists we encourage you to think like
journalists when reporting to the members of this
community. We encourage you to prepare messages that are
complete and balanced in presentation. Please cite the
source of information whenever possible, and distinguish
between personal eyewitness accounts, hearsay, rumor,
speculation, official statements, and third-party
reports. When possible offer URLs (Web addresses) to
important source materials. State whether costs, dates,
times and similar information is exact or approximate,
and note whether prices include or do not include sales
Before you ask a question of the
members of this group, recognize that obtaining the
answer to your question may require them to place one or

obtain the answer to your question by placing a telephone
call yourself, we encourage you to do so, and if you
unearth new information you're encouraged to share it
with the rest of the community.

Message boards are like any other organized
gathering of people; there are rules of etiquette that
everyone is expected to follow. Here are the common rules
of netiquette as they apply to message boards:
Read Before Participating
It's best to browse our message board for a while before
you post your first message. Read a few subjects
(threads) the first time you visit our board, and then
read new messages for another couple of days. You'll see
what topics are hot and which are cold, you'll get to
know some of the key participants, and you'll become
familiar with the demeanor of our board.
Write clearly when you compose a message. Review your
message carefully before submitting it; typos are
confusing. Remember, if your message can be
misunderstood, it will be.
Refrain from using ALL CAPS
Typing in all capital letters is frowned upon; it's the
equivalent of screaming at everyone. It also makes your
message more difficult to read.
No "Me Too's"
"Me too" messages are a quick way to irritate
other members. If you agree with a posting, either enjoy
your consent by yourself or reply with an informative
comment about why you agree. Imagine how dull a board
would get if it contained hundreds of "me
Be Careful About What You Post
Be careful about including private information about
yourself, such as phone numbers and street addresses.
Private information of that nature may be better sent by
e-mail. Additionally, be careful posting hearsay or
unverified rumors that aren't identified as such.
Be Kind, Be Honest
Don't issue personal attacks, use profanity, or post
threatening, abusive, harassing, or otherwise offensive
language or images. You also may not impersonate another
individual or communicate under a name that you are not
entitled to use.
Remember Your Options
Some replies are better sent as e-mail, rather than
posted to our message board. Personal messages and
especially critical comments are more appropriate when
sent directly and privately. You can click the author's
name to compose an e-mail to them.
No Chain Letters or
Chain letters are never appreciated in the online
community. Advertisements are just as unwelcome. Please
read our message board guidelines to the left also.
Use your own words. If you want to quote
another source, be brief (a few sentences will do) and provide a
hyperlink to the remainder of the information.
