After considerable thought, communication with our membership, and internal discussion, we have decided it is time to reconsider the way we look at the Eliters Clubs. Up to this point we have been somewhat strict, considering the clubs to be an "official" adjunct to Eliters management and discouraging any use of the clubs that is not specifically related to Eliters business. Lately the clubs have been pretty moribund, and we have again listened to our valuable members and decided to change the course of your clubs.
Effective immediately, we are removing many restrictions on the use of the clubs, and we encourage people to treat them as a social as well as an informational venue. As long as members follow our "4 basic NOs", you will be more free to post to whatever topics you wish in the clubs.
1. NO personal attacks on individuals or groups.
2. NO racism or other forms of bigotry.
3. NO foul language.
4. NO advertising or solicitation.
Eliters management still retains the right to delete posts as it deems necessary, but we will be a lot less heavy-handed in this now. We trust you, our members, to help us keep this resource a civil, friendly place to hang out, and we encourage you to make new, expanded use of YOUR clubs to further the sense of Eliters as an extended community.
