You have just wandered into a public bulletin board where you may find the airing of many controversial issues in and outside
the boundaries of the chip hobby. You will be reading and digesting opposing opinions of many dedicated chippers. Some of
these chippers are brand new to the hobby, just like you are.... others are seasoned veterans, more than willing to share
their experiences and the knowledge they have received in the hobby with others.
Please treat this bulletin board as if you lifted the receiver of your telephone at home and overheard some private
heated discussions.... much as someone else has compared this board to listening friends argue at the neighborhood bar.
Do not take these public exchanges for more than they are worth. Most posts are merely opinions.... others are very
factual. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish between the two. You may agree with some of them. You may disagree with
others. But in the final analysis, most of the posts on this board are meant to be informative and others are intended

tolerated, such as calling someone names like a liar or a thief, or speaking in any way that could cause harm to another user.
You have every right to disagree with someone or be mad at them, but your right to state so publicly on this board stops short
of saying anything that could harm another person.
