Dear Readers -
Liz and Bill Spear from Mason Ohio contribute so much to our ActiveRain community. My personal thanks go to them for this very important post.

The ActiveRain Community Guidelines
Offer Structure for AR Members
When the ActiveRain founders decided to prepare a full statement of their Weltanschauung or World View, they also outlined behavioral goals and norms for the AR Community - both positive ones to pursue and negative ones to avoid. The goal was to create a CULTURE that would provide the AR Community with peace and prosperity.
