We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.

We on OCDO are generally a merry band of brothers and sister defending and promoting the same thing. Where we all too frequently run into trouble is dealing with the interpersonal relationshhips - we are quick to criticize other members/posters/users. This needs to be curtailed.
The following suggestions will help in eliminating misunderstandings:
1) Always put quotation marks around material not your own, unless such is clearly identified as to the source.
2) Make personal opinions clearly such. Adding "just my 2 cents" to the end of your post helps accomplish that.
3) Do not attack/criticize other posters. Reply/respond to the facts or opinions expressed w/o animosity.
4) Phrases like "I have heard" and "Some would say" if used judiciously can get the message across.
