When citing a discussion post in your reference list, include the author of the post, the date, the name of the discussion thread, and the course URL.

For example:

Smattering, L.  (2014, February 28). Re: Academic Integrity [Online discussion group]. Retrieved from 

Your in-text citation would follow the normal citation order: (Smattering, 2014).
