Trip Report Comment Policy
Given the recent trend of TRs hijacked by arguments and "spray" we are implementing a policy to stop this.  If you have an issue with something in a Trip Report, send a PM or take it to another part of the forum and start a generic discussion.  Thanks.  Edit:  since some are confused about the new policy, here's some clarification:

Mean spirited, nit-picky debate is what isn't allowed.

-Dropping in on a trip report to pick apart the grammar or spelling.
-Posting about how stupid someone is for having a dog at a certain place.
-Posting that somebody is only inviting drama.

Those are just some recent examples of what we're clamping down on.  Good natured back and forth conversations are totally fine.

Basically, in trip reports, we're asking you all to stop and think about what you're typing.  Be nice.  Be polite.  If you have an honest criticism, raise it in a separate thread.  It's just that simple. - Website Use Disclaimer
