SimplyFair includes blogs and other features to enhance its members' sharing of such experiences. Accuracy in descriptions of all such experiences is expected of submissions to SimplyFair's pages. The site's motto is, in effect, "We all need to play fair." Responsibility for the accuracy of posts to SimplyFair rests with the member doing the posting.
