The International Fire Investigation Research Institute is dedicated to keeping information exchange professional, informative and enlightening.  Accordingly, the following are IFIRI’s rules of etiquette for the forum:

Participation in this educational forum is a benefit of membership in the IFIRI and, as such, all members must be diligent in making sure the content of the forum remains not only civil, but professionally valuable.

Questions posted should be met with professional answers and not personal attacks.  Opinions submitted should be done so in the spirit of review and input, not as decrees….

To ensure professionalism, we are requiring forum participants who place a post to reveal their identity and to use their full name.  If you want to post a photograph of yourself, that will be an option available to you.

By eliminating anonymous posts we feel that honest and open communication can reduce and perhaps eliminate “name calling”  In fact, name calling usually results when one can no longer debate an issue logically. 

Since investigations and testing should be conducted objectively and without emotions, the forum will not tolerate personal attacks.  Anyone resorting to unprofessional conduct will be “flagged” as a name caller, and continued violations will result in deletion of the offending post.

The forum is to be used as a meaningful exchange of information and education among fire investigators and other professional forensic experts and scientists.  It is not to be used as a social support system for anyone. 

Sycophancy will not be tolerated.  For example, posts such as “right on”, “you’re the man”, “amen”, “well said!”, etc., waste others’ time and therefore will be removed.

This forum is set up for the benefit of participants.  The posted rules were designed to facilitate the objective exchange of ideas, concepts, and scientific findings among professionals.  Should anyone have suggestions about additional rules or amendments to those posted, please submit them to the administrator 'Halon' for consideration.
