  • Rules - updated 11/18/2012

    All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective. However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule. Doing otherwise will get your account banned temporarily, or permanently if the situation becomes severe enough (this will be left to the discretion of the moderation team); For example, phrases such as "shut up, idiot," are indicative of problematic posts and should be reported. Suggested alternatives include "I disagree with what you said for the following reasons..." Please remember to stay mature and thoughtful at all times.

    All posts must be intelligent, insightful and add to the discussion. One liners, thoughtless remarks, trollish comments, and/or stupidity will not be tolerated. This is not the place for trolling. Go to the IRC for that, or the off topic section. Do not try to pad your post count in this section.


    Do not post any messages that harass, insult (name calling), belittle, threaten or mock other members. Debates are fine, but critique the opinion, not the person. Personal attacks are not permitted. Do not use sweeping generalizations and plural pronouns to cloak personal attacks. For example if a poster states that he thinks 'x' is a good idea, replying that "Anyone who supports 'x' is an idiot" is a personal attack.

    No topic is taboo as of now. If you are all courteous and responsible (and refrain from acting like 12 year old children/trolls) we will not put any restrictions on what you can talk about.
