Forum Guidelines.

The following rules and suggestions are items agreed to by the group conscience, to promote civility among contributors, and keep topics on point.

‌• Links to other sites are not allowed, and will be deleted, exceptions are those with the following domains: and other country GSOs,,, and

‌•‌ We offer our own ES&H and avoid critiquing the shares of others.

‌• A thread, particularly one advising a newcomer, should stay on point. If we wish to change the subject we can start a new thread, or accept that moderators may move the post or the entire thread.

‌• As we would in a regular meeting, we try to be reasonable in the amount we share on one particular topic. A limit of two or three contributions is advised.

‌• In quoting another person we might leave out names, in keeping with our tradition of principles before personalities.

‌• Please limit the copying and pasting of externally sourced material to short passages, which are intended as an aid in explaining the writers thoughts on any particular subject.

‌• If anyone wishes to appeal the way the site is managed, the user is welcome to join e-AA's group conscience.
