Time for everyone to re-read the forum rules
    #4125578 - 05/02/05 11:46 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

What the hell is going on today anyway? Did Al Qaeda dump a few gallons of "cranky bitch" serum in America's water supply?

Seems like every thread I've checked tonight has got people slangin' each other. Cut it out, y'all. Present your views on the subject of the thread, wait for a response, then present your views on the ideas discussed in the response. Simple, really.

No more calling each other names. No more "you make me sick" replies.

There are really too many examples of this in the threads on the front page of the forum tonight for me to give individual warnings, so this post serves as a warning to everyone. Follow the rules or be banned. If you're unsure this warning applies to you, then it probably does.

Grow up, people.

Oh yeah, that was a short read. :smile:

I think the rules are... "No Flaming."

See for yourself...

Political Forum Rules
     
In general I like to keep the flow of information and ideas free in the political forum...but due to the nature of this forum there is bound to be some heated debate.
Here are 2 rules that I would like all of you to observe.

1) NO FLAMING ...if you can't state your case or refute someone elses case without calling them "stupid" or an "idiot"..etc...Then don't bother posting here. This forum is for intelligent debate, not to try to belittle someone that doesn't think like you. THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED ... If you have been warned already, you will receive a temporary ban, if you continue to flame you will be banned permanently...choose your words wisely or suffer the consequences.

2) Although not always possible, when quoting a source please provide a link.

That's it..Basically I am looking to create a more tolerant atmosphere in here...it's not too much to ask. There are many different views and beliefs represented in this forum, more so than any other (with the possible exception of the S & P forum) and we need to be able to communicate our points of view clearly without resorting to petty name calling. We are better than that.

IF I were an asshole with no regard for these forum rules, I might call you a cock-craving colon-cleansing ass-raiding butt-bandit who guzzles random mens' jizz with reckless abandon.  But I'm not. :evil:

If I was a more forgiving mod I wouldn't ban you flaming in an indirect way...but I'm not....see you in 24.
