“On the internet nobody knows you’re a dog”.
In the modern age, online discourse and discussion are the cornerstones of public opinion, influence, and judgements. However, since anyone and everyone can sign up for one of the current Social Media giants, there is a saturation of unqualified opinions, disinformation, and speculation amongst the discussions.
The CTOA Verified Discussion board is open only to active members that have been verified and approved via their professional credentials. The Verified Discussion Board is not open for public registration, although Civilians with the Watchman membership are able to participate in the discussions in a limited capacity.
By making Membership verification mandatory, a member stands by their posts and comments with the weight of their professional reputation, credentials, and experience.
