From the Introduction

Discuss ethical and legal concerns:

If you want to discuss the incident, please feel free to. If you want to discuss what is cyber stalking and what isn't, what the correct fannish reaction is, please do. If you want to discuss the legality of fan fiction, please do. If you want to address specific incidents in fandom, I'm all for it but please reference more than you're just jealous. Please, research your information before you open your mouth and provide defense for some of your positions. Please, don't name call. Calling others crazy and accusing others of being jealous are posts that will most likely find themselves deleted . Discuss, don't harrass. Remember, this board is for the discussion of ethics and legal information pertaining to fandom. It isn't to demonstrate how unethical you can be. Also, please note, your IP addresses can be tracked. -- Writers University
