First of all, I decided to separate this into a different forum, allowing people to skip over this entire subject if they wish.

Since the subjects covered in this forum can get a bit touchy, here are some ground rules that must be followed.  Breaking these rules will NOT be tolerated.  Normal forum rules also must be followed.

1. NO FLAMING: If you disagree with an opinion, say so, but don't be an ass about it.  Personal attacks are not tolerated here.
2. NO TROLLING: Obviously, some posts (especially rants) will fall on the edge of this.  If you clearly make a post just to make people angry, the post will be locked and censored.  Do this too much and consequences will be coming your way.
3. SWEARING: Swearing is tolerated.  Everyone is passionate about something.  We just ask you to keep it down as much as possible.  Don't swear needlessly.
4. HATE SPEECH: ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NEVER TOLERATED.  Using any "hate speech" WILL result in a ban.  Immediately.  if you don't know what hate speech is, visit this link: (As a note here, "queer" is not always considered offensive.  This applies to other groups as well, though I can't speak for what is okay or not for them.)

As for regulations, we just ask you to be kind.  Debate, but don't flame or argue.  Rants are fine, but don't be a jerk.  Listen to advice given, take it into consideration, and don't immediately throw out anything someone says.

That said, we reserve the right to censor any post made on any forum.  Free speech means nothing here.

In addition, the moderators may decide to participate or start their own discussion here.  Debate in this forum is encouraged, but don't assume that if a moderator decides to shut down a discussion they're apart of that they are saying "I'm right and you're wrong."  Rather, they are using their judgment to keep this forum a peaceful place for everyone.  We don't want a discussion to get out of hand and we don't want people holding grudges.
