clarification of Pub Forum Rule #3
    #4273467 - 06/08/05 10:20 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So how exactly can a post be "off topic" in the Pub? I mean, with Cultivation or Trip Tips, it's pretty clear, but... ya know what I'm saying?

Sometimes I like to post "off topic" stuff here because I don't want to deal with the people in OTD. I mean, would my popcorn thread be "off topic"?

Plus I think the no racism rule should basically go under rule #1 (no flamming, or no flamming other races). I agree that threads that are just bashing and insulting other races should be locked or deleted, but what if I want to post about how I hate living near a black ghetto or think interracial relationships are immoral (for example). Would that violate the anti-racism rule?

I'm not trying to nitpick or be an asshole, I just think that these rules are a little ambiguous...

The Pub:

"A place for laid-back discussion on any topic..."

I don't see anything wrong with a popcorn thread. Just don't flame people here and don't post pics of people pooping into peoples' mouths.

On topic: meaning on the topic of the what the poster has posted.

If the Pub is for any topic, what's the point of even saying on-topic in the rules? There is no topic.

If its not Grateful Dead, its off topic. :gd_icon: j/k


Im sure the rule is ambiguous so the mods have discretion.





BTW do you really think interracial relationships are immoral?

Maybe this isnt a website dedicated to conversations of race or racisim. This is a web site dedicated to teaching and spreading knowledge and dispelling misinformation of psychledelics.

Earlier today, I was trying to discuss the pancake rabbit, but that thread got locked. Is there a "quality of content standard" or something? Every post was on topic (the pancake rabbit), but the thread got closed.

Ah, interesting. This is almost never enforced though, if any thread goes on long enough this rule will be violated.

It's all a mater of discretion on the part of the mods. Remember what the pub is all about ....Respect for your fellow Shroomery members!

3) This is not OTD - keep threads on-topic and do not fill the forum with inane chatter and post whoring. Keep chat behavior to a minimum. Post with content.

Mod's discretion on the thread's quality. I trust the mods here to judge that according to the Pub's description on the forums page

edit: in other words, what Ripple said, posted this before I saw his post
