So I found this piece of work from the North Carolina Office of State Personnel's Grapevine; which ostensibly has the goal of providing "a vehicle to build community among personnel and to foster a professional environment of sharing and learning." It is a moderated forum and evidently a HEAVILY moderated forum - I mean Judas H. Priest - put a foot on my neck and squeeze why don't you? Read these rules and then guess at the level of participation in this 'forum.'
Don’t use any speech that is inaccurate, unlawful, harmful, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, racially or ethnically objectionable, personal attacks,antagonistic, threatening, abusive or harassing to other users or the general public. **So, you're going to outlaw inaccuracies?
Don’t post advertisements, solicitations, chain letters, pyramid schemes, investment opportunities or other unsolicited commercial communication. **OK..that's fine...
Don’t spam. **Ooops. I think you guys just violated your own rule
Don’t use UPPERCASE – This is the same as shouting. **REALLY?! WHO KNEW?!
Don’t repeat information already provided. **Glass houses.....
Don’t dole out truism (You get what you pay for.). **That is a favorite. I would've gone with "Don't parse homilies" but this one is still good.
Don’t overwhelm with information. **Seriously? Really? You have the gall to publish a list of Do's and Don'ts with 32 rules on it and then include this? Really?
The whole list is here.
