• A "flame" is defined as a negative statement about any individual or specific group of individuals (such as the * Board of Directors, members of a specific club, and so on).
  • Your messages *must* focus on issues, and may *not* focus on individuals or their actions.
  • For example, it would be okay to say "I personally believe that responsible breeders should have their stud dogs' hips X-rayed," while it is not okay to say "breeders who don't X-ray their stud dogs' hips are irresponsible."
