1) Members who use the GPA-L recognize that the list exists to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, offer mutual support and assistance, further the entrepreneurial aims of our members, and collectively promote our companies, industry, and hobby.
2) Members are welcome to post advertisements for products and services on the GPA-L, as well as free offers. Such posts will be preceded by [OFFER] or [AD].
3) Members are also welcome to make recommendations on products, services, and actual individuals associated with other companies. However, specific complaints, concerns, or grievances with the party in question must be delivered off-list. For example: "I would not ever work with Joe Publisher again. Feel free to contact me off list if you'd like to know why."
4) If a member believes the GPA-L is being used inappropriately, that member should communicate that information immediately to any member of the Board of Directors. The Board takes such complaints very seriously and acts on them immediately.
