Please Don't be: Abusive. A hijacker. A troll. A sock.
Attack the argument, not the person.
1. A person who makes a deliberately offensive post with the aim of upsetting another in order to solicit an angry response.
2. Doxing: Attempting to uncover the Real Life identity of a member and posting that information in the open forum without that member's consent
3. Online behaviour that has Real Life consequences, such as pushing members to self-harm or encouraging violence against others.
4: "Pack Attack": When several posters gang up on an individual with the sole purpose of driving them out of the forum with antagonism and intimidation. This includes making threats against the hostess and her forum to ensure their target is banished.
For Level 1 infringements: You are given 3 warnings, then gagged for a week.
You may return, but only get one chance before being locked out permanently.
For Level 2, 3 and 4: You're out of my forum and never coming back.
All links and Signatures welcome. Feel free to promote your forum.
The Hostess With The Mostess May move your thread to a different folder;
but she will never censor you.
All opinions are welcome here.
However - Hijacking is not tolerated. I don't care how passionate you feel about a topic; a thread devoted to pictures of adorable kittens is not the place to start an argument about the Holocaust.
You get three warnings, then you're gagged for a week.
Subsequent infractions will result in a permanent lockout.
SPAM will be deleted on sight. This includes "automated responses". Your macro system may be ingenious to you, but it's SPAM to everyone else.
Also, Godwin's Law applies here, and the penalty is ridicule.
Straitjackets are fitted to your size on request and custom bedazzled by the

Or more eloquently stated by William Shakespeare:
A jest’s prosperity lies in the ear of him that hears it, never in the tongue of him that makes it.
In other words... Learn to take a joke.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” –Bernard. M Baruch
When asked “What Do You Think of Western Civilization?” Gandhi replied: "I think it would be a good idea".
This space free for more quotes that make us look more intelligent than we actually are..
Aw crap! I ended that sentence with a preposition!
