Common sense, standard decency, politeness & family-friendly please.

Keep in mind, this is a discussion forum, not a place for rants and what would be more suited to your blog.

For any pedants, the following are specifically non-acceptable:

- Foul-language
- Name-calling
- Bigotry
- Racism
- Nudity (feel free to type your content nude, just don't upload nude pics)
- Hate
- Sexual comments about other members
- Violent comments in relation to other members
- Any negative comments regarding another members family, their upbringing, their intelligence, their sexuality etc
- Describing, or linking to, anything illegal

Anyone doing the following will be removed from the forum:

- Impersonation of someone else
- Misrepresentation & lying
- Blatant promotion of a commercial enterprise
- Spam

Spam means any of these:

- Affiliate links (links to products that include your affiliate code, which means you profit if someone purchases the item)
- Linking to your website for the purpose of boosting your site's search engine ranking
- Posts that have nothing to do with the topic being discussed

Also, if your purpose is purely to dis the topic, and post things like "you are all crazy, the world isn't going to end", then you and your post will be removed. There are plenty of other forums out there for such opinions - just not this one.

Otherwise, write what you will - but remember that WRITING ALL IN CAPS IS YELLING - so please only use all caps for yelling purposes, and please don't yell! Especially don't yell in the Subject Line!



UPDATE

(copied from another forum, but very appropriate)

Agenda posting: Do not use the site to promote an agenda. This often involves the starting of forum threads or making posts which appear to be legitimate in nature but which are aimed at surreptitiously promoting some political view, religious belief or to attack or criticise other members, beliefs or views in an underhand manner which detracts from unbiased and fair discussion.

You mean your avatar is a misrepresentation of how you really look?

I was about to say that his picture actually looked like....... something I can not say otherwise we might get some younger viewers asking to many uncomfortable questions to their older guardians.... and parents and such.

I would also like to add, that if a topic is not directly related to 2012 (such as the U.S. Presidential election candidates) and it's controversial (homosexuality, bigotry) it's much better suited for a blog, and not a friendly discussion forum.
