In addition to these rules, various standards have emerged within the *culture* of electronic list forums. These standards do NOT mean requirements, however. By following these standards and rules, you will contribute to a climate of trust and collegiality that encourages a friendly, informed and, yet spontaneous discourse.

Standard 1: Please sign each of your messages, including your Email address. This enables us to be able to communicate with you in response to your message. Most Email software includes a signature option that automatically generates this information and any other you wish.

Standard 2: Please keep your messages constructive, courteous, and brief.

Standard 3: Please adhere to HIPAA regulations and refrain from disclosing personal or identifying information when discussing or referring to actual assessment clients.

Standard 4: If your Email software program includes and you utilize an option that repeats the message to which you are responding, please, please do not repeat any part of the message that is not essential. This will save considerable space (bandwidth) for everyone who receives your message.

Standard 5: Please be supportive of fellow Forum members and show mutual respect.
