Thank you for choosing to be a part of this forum dedicated to discussions on the AWS Platform. I am glad you have found what you were looking for.

Our intention is to have a forum that is highly active, thoroughly informative and a friendly place to have open discussions on the AWS platform. And in order to achieve this, we have framed a set of guidelines/rules to be followed by every one without exception on this forum. Violation of these rules will lead to a permanent ban from the forum.

1. Respect Everyone:
This is a public forum that is used by people from all around the world of all ages, of different cultural backgrounds, of different job domains and of different levels of experience. You are not superior or inferior to anyone. There will be zero tolerance for condescending behavior, mockery, personal attacks, posting of private data of other users, harassment, swearing, racist behavior & bigotry. If someone does any of this to you, then report the post right away and do not indulge in the same behavior saying he/she started it. Saying so will not absolve you of blame. If you have a disagreement with someone, respectfully point out your difference point wise without attacking the other person and do not drag on posts endlessly without adding anything of value to the conversation.

2. No Religious Discussions:
Any posts found discussing religious matters regardless of it being informational or abusive will be removed and the user will be warned. Repeat behavior will lead to a permanent ban.

3. No Political Discussions:

These rules and guidelines will get updated from time to time and it is your responsibility to keep yourself updated. Feigning ignorance of the rules will not absolve you of the offense committed. Also, your state of mind at the time of committing an offense is irrelevant, so saying things like you were angry, frustrated etc. will not cut you any slack.
