Rules Concerning Political Topics
« on: April 28, 2007, 09:19:10 pm »
There are likely to be many political threads here as the U.S. goes into this "tragically early" presidential election season. Political discussion tends to bring out the worst in people, and as such, isn't usually conducive to community welfare. This being, above all, an internet  community, I don't want to see people get divided or hurt by political debates. With that said however, I think most of the regulars here are fairly sane and rational people, capable of separating political discourse and disagreement from the other aspects of life. Keeping that in mind, I'm going to allow political topics and discussion here, even if it gets heated, so long as the participants remain at least somewhat civil, and do NOT carry grudges or issues over into non-political threads, or other aspects of the community here.

I reserve the right to delete, lock, ban, or otherwise censor any post, topic, or person breaking what I feel to be the rules of rational discourse. I state here, in advance, that I hope it does not become necessary for me to exercise this right, but if it does, know that I do it in the interest and maintaining this community, and will NOT use it to further my own (or anyone else's) beliefs. agendas, or arguments.


Now, that said, let the debates begin!

That's great that you decided to allow us to discuss certain topics on your free thinking site, despite the fact that we might hurt each other's feelings.

Ah Gopus... you just love trying to find logical fallacies in people's behavior, don't you?

I don't like discussing politics because it's boring and people get way, waaaay too fussy about things.
And wasn't it you who told me,

I'm unstickying this because... well, politics doesn't seem to be popular enough here to warrant it. Yay!
