Dear Members & Visitors to the IAS Message Board,
Thank you for taking time to visit our message board. While you are
here, we ask that you follow a few simple guidelines to make this a
great place for everyone here:
1. For your safety, please do not post your home/work physical address
or your home/cell/work phone numbers at anytime.
2. When posting - be sure your subject line is descriptive. Help or
Urgent does not tell someone what you are needing nor will an urgent
message be answered in only a few minutes after posting. Please
remember, all information posted will be available in our archives for

will be national news about it. [I spent 14 years in the software
world). Also - please do not include the message board in your bulk
email address list for jokes, greeting cards, etc.
5. Do not use the message board to point fingers/blame in response to
what someone has said, provide hateful or political messages or
participate in a "virtual war of words". If your message contains the
words "I know who you are" or "you know who you are" -- it will be
