This post is made on behalf of the entire Administrative Team and represents a Statement of Principals

Your words have value.

In the simplest terms, your words have value simply because you are a Human Being. Our Nation's Founders expressed this concept when they wrote in the Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
And then enshrined those rights in our Constitution:
First Amendment - Religion and Expression. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Your words have value.

Internet Discussion Sites like the one you are reading now depend on your contributions to remain viable. Every question and every answer contributes to the site, and those questions and answers, along with product reviews, how-to tutorials, and discussion of differing methods and procedures are the reasons why anyone visits any Internet Discussion Site. Some sites see that value, and find ways to turn the value present in your words into a profit for themselves. The way that they do that is to get you to surrender your Copy Rights. They do this in their Terms Of Service or Users Agreements by inserting phrases such as "This site assumes Copyright on anything posted here." or "By participating in this site, you agree to surrender Copyright to the owner." Some of them will even ask that you not post what you write to any other site. This means that you cannot edit or delete your posts. You have lost all control of your words, and the value contained therein.

This is not one of those sites.

That's because we know that your words have value, and that value is rightfully yours to control. We allow you to delete any and all posts that you put here for whatever reason you choose. The only restriction is that your posts conform to basic norms of decency regarding pornography, foul language, encouraging acts of sedition or the commission of a crime, bigotry, and hate speech.

A technical provision of the site will not allow you to remove the first post of a thread that you start, but you can edit the first post to remove what you have written there. The only other alternative we have would be to allow you to delete the entire thread, but then you would also be deleting the posts of others who contributed to it, and we recognize both the value of those posts, and the right of the people posting them to control their own words.

Your words have value.

This site is established to discuss various aspects of Hammock Camping, but we recognize that we cannot logically limit the discussion here to just discussing hammocks, without discussing camping and backpacking---and that those discussions have value.

Other sites recognize both the desire of members to discuss other aspects of camping and backpacking, and the value those discussions represent. They use that value to make a profit by charging a fee for you to see posts of that type, which is also a fee for the privilege of posting there---and those posts enhance the value of the site because your words have value.

This is not one of those sites.

You may notice that there is no button, no icon, no link to a place where you can send us money. It doesn't cost much to run a site like this, and we are more than happy to bear that cost because your words have value to us, we want to read them, and we want other people to benefit from them. The last thing we want you to do is to pay for the privilege of giving us what we need to keep this site viable. There may come a time when the cost of running or improving this site becomes a burden we cannot bear, and we may ask for some help. We pledge to you now that if we ever do find the need to ask for this help, we will tell you the exact amount needed and what it is for---and we will not collect one penny over the needed amount. Once that amount is reached, we will thank those who contributed and stop accepting further contributions.

Your words have value.

That's because you can tell us who you are, and we want to know you. We provide you with a space on every post you make for you to place a personal message---a "Signature". We place no limitation on what you put there over what is expressed above for your posts, and technical limitations due to bandwidth restrictions imposed on us by the website platform we are using. We pledge that we will not take sides with those who wish to silence you for whatever opinion or identity you choose to post there. You have the right to tell people who you are, and that's because YOU HAVE VALUE and we respect that value even more than the value of your words.

First I would just like to say, thank you for the chance on your giveaway and thanks for the video. I had no idea this site existed :o I think one of the big problems facing us today is to many folks think we have to be politically correct. We need to get back to the grass roots, a time like it was when I was growing up (born in 1955). So much hate these days, its sad. Well anyway, thanks for the heads up on this group.

Awesome and first off thank ya. I administration a FB group called Hangspot New England which is all about the wonderful world of hammocking. I'm using it to spread my words and hopefully they have value in a positive manor in getting more folks to have interest in getting outdoors more. I didn't even know this site existed but I'm surely going to combing through it to gain some tips and tricks. Thanks again. If you keep confident and show respect your word will have value.

Thanks Sarge! Glad there is a place where we can be adults that can practice and discuss our beliefs whether it be Hammocks or our Faith!

Awesome! I'm glad there's a place where we can have adult conversations without worrying about hurting someone's fragile self esteem and we are also allowed to have different opinions instead of someone having to be "right" and the other "wrong."

bravo!
