Please use private correspondence for that type of discussion.

CCAS is committed to respect. Forum members are encouraged to address the issues under discussion and not to resort to any denigrating characterizations of the person, regardless of how mild you deem your comments to be.

CCAS is committed to building up others. Members are encouraged not to make negative inferences (i.e., presumptions about other members’ remarks), especially when such inferences have no clear objective basis.

Please note that this site is for the members and associates of the Christian Comic Arts Society, and thus basic Christian principles are expected in our interaction here. This includes consideration for the feelings and conscience of other members. Likewise, obscene/profane language, pornographic content, and libel are strictly prohibited.

Most importantly, please remember the words of Christ: "By this the world shall know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (John 13:35)
