The Crock Pot
~new Forum created, April 2011

About the The Crock Pot for General FAS Membership:

In our effort to keep emotionally charged, contentious threads out of the On Topic boards
and consolidated in the Off Topic boards, we have created a separate forum for those threads.
This forum is called The Crock Pot and is located under Off Topic. 

The Crock Pot forum is a Member only forum -- both to read and post.

Once a thread is recognized as belonging in The Crock Pot, part or all of it may be moved to The Crock Pot
by Moderators or Committee Members. 

A new topic may be started in The Crock Pot if, in the opening poster's considered estimation, the thread/discussion is anticipated to be one of heavy debate or contentiousness such that the new topic would be best suited in The Crock Pot.

ALL topics and posts in The Crock Pot must not violate the TOS (Terms of Service) of Olicentral or of Food Allergy Support. 
Please refer to those TOS documents for further details prior to beginning a topic or posting in The Crock Pot
Terms of Service for our forum host and FAS 
Registration Agreement 
Topics/posts that are in violation of either TOS will be locked and removed.

As to posting in The Crock Pot, the following are some guidelines and suggestions:

Be critical of ideas, not people.  Attack or debate post(s) with facts, quotes and information/links to back up your position on a topic.

Being directly personally attacked (NOT allowed) is NOT the same as taking something personally (your problem).  So, don't take posts personally.

If you don't agree with someone, perhaps step away.  The last post isn't necessarily the winner!

Enjoy, debate fairly, and enter here only if you have a thick hide.

Flaming will not be tolerated. No member is allowed to engage in public personal attacks on another member.
As in all areas of the FAS Board, personal attacks will not be tolerated.

What is posted in The Crock Pot stays in The Crock Pot -- not quoted NOR alluded to anywhere else on boards. Period.

The Crock Pot will be moderated.  It will not be a free-for-all!

Respectfully Submitted,

Your FAS Committee 2011-2012

This thread is for announcement purposes only. 
If a separate discussion is desired,
please begin a thread here for that purpose and Committee Members will answer questions if necessary.  Thank you.
