BWCA and Quetico Park Bulletin Board Information

This forum was established to inform and facilitate discussion about the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northeastern Minnesota and the Quetico Park in Ontario, Canada. This forum was created and published October 26th, 1998 as a NON-COMMERCIAL RESOURCE. We do not allow users to post advertisements on the bulletin board or the collecting of names and e-mail addresses for advertisements. Posts that contain irrelevant information to the theme of this bulletin board can and may be removed after a complaint has been made.
You must include the subject, time and post date and who posted the message.

Complaining or negative posts will also be removed without notice. Users of the BWCA and Quetico Park Bulletin Boards are seeking quality information that is relevant to the area. Personal posts to another user are meant for private email discussions and are inappropriate to be posted on the bulletin board. Personal posts will be removed without notice. All bulletin board posts use space on a server and our space is limited. Please use private email responses to existing posts if your post is not information that another bulletin board user would find useful.

Commercial posting is prohibited and will be removed

We strive to keep our forum free from the posting of advertising or commercial content. If you feel there is a post or posts that violates our policies please call Chad Jones at 218.387.2075 with the user name, subject  and date of the post. 

  • Question: What is a commercial post?

>>Commercial posts are the number one complaint on most bulletin boards!

A post consisting of advice of a product or service will be evaluated on a individual basis if there is a complaint. CanoeCountry.com realizes that there is a fine line between a poster recommending a service or product within a story or event recount on the bulletin board and a post that is mainly promoting a service or product. Any post that has no other content, a post that has the sole intent to promote a commercial service or product, a post using a commercial domain in the subject field, will be removed and the poster may be banned from using our resources in the future. 

CanoeCountry.com suggests that a post that contains commercial information be emailed back to the requester in a private email. Since accidents and misunderstandings can happen were making these policies readily available for all users. A poster that violates our acceptable uses and terms of service will be advised of such violation. If a second violation occurs the user will be banned until further notice.

  • If you cannot abide by our regulations then do not use our service, please...

>>The use of fowl, vulgar or inappropriate words or content is the second largest complaint on most bulletin boards!

Any user that uses fowl, vulgar or inappropriate words or posting of inappropriate content will be immediately banned from using our resources. There is no excuse for this activity. Many children and families use our resources. Please report any such violation to Chad Jones 218. 387.2075 with the user name, subject  and date of the post. We will cooperate fully with any law enforcement investigation.

You are entirely liable for all activities conducted through your posting. Listed below are some, though not all, violations which may result in removing a post, banning a poster and contacting law enforcement officials. You agree not to do any of the following actions while using the BWCA and Quetico Park Bulletin Board located at: www.canoecountry.com/bulletinboard .
