The General Rules Of Engagement
When posting on this forum, we expect that our members treat one another with respect and civility. Some discussion might stray into absurdity; conversation might become critical; but at all times we expect our members to remain civil and avoid directing personal insults at one another. You can call out an idea for being stupid, but not the person raised it; do not make this personal.
Strong feelings on particular topics will arise; words may be sharp and direct; but we expect everyone will understand where the line is, even if one is not drawn in these rules. If you want to get nasty, head to the Hog Pit.
What sort of sanctions could you face? Anything we feel is appropriate. Again, if you think what you might say may offend someone, head to the Hog Pit. For many of our members, this is a place to rant and rave in relative safety, anonymously and without recourse by those in their real lives. We aim to keep it that way.
We moderators cannot guarantee complete safety, of course. We cannot guarantee you will not be offended or triggered. As with the Hog Pit, we will try to moderate this place in accordance with the rules above. If you think a post crosses the line, intentionally or unintentionally, please flag the post, advise us by DM, or both.
We will act when we see we need to, and although what we see and know may or may not be the same as what you see and know, we are still obliged to enforce the rules to the best of our knowledge and experience. That's the only reason we are here, and when that reason is gone there will be no need for us.
