AIRPOWER BLOG PARTICIPATION RULES

Airpower Blog participants should observe the following rules:

Classified or Sensitive Information

The Airpower Blog is a public discussion blog serving the U.S. Military Aviation Community. Due to the nature of the topics discussed on The Airpower Blog, please exercise discretion. Neither articles nor comments should make reference to, or suggest the existence of, any information that resides in the Classified or Sensitive categories. If in doubt, don’t post it.

OPSEC

Operational Security (OPSEC) considerations always apply. Please alert the Airpower Blog moderators if you think a particular article or comment should be removed. This is certainly applicable for OPSEC-related items. Politely notify a commenter if a comment poses an OPSEC issue. This also serves as a reminder to others who comment. If the commenter reveals an ignorance of what OPSEC is, simply ignore the comment or refer the commenter to public domain information.

Comment Guidance

Ensure that any comments that you post are directly relevant to the Airpower article being discussed. Comments that are not truly germane to the article should be avoided in order to maintain focus. Be polite, courteous, civilized and respectful. Do not use obscene language. Treat the privacy of others as an absolute.

  • Structure your article with an introduction, body and conclusion.
  • Write well. Pay attention to spelling, grammar, and style. If an acronym is used, please use the full text version when the term is first used, followed by the acronym in parentheses, as demonstrated in the OPSEC paragraph above.
