About the Rules

We want to host a constructive, civil discussion where people can discuss topics freely in an atmosphere of mutual respect. With that in mind, we request that you follow the below rules:
  1. Refrain from personal attacks and insults; focus your response on the argument, not the individual.
  2. Do not post any messages or materials that are illegal, libelous, or defamatory.
  3. Within reason, stick to the topic of the thread; please do not hijack or derail the conversation.
  4. Do not post commercial or promotional material.
  5. Encouraging or threatening violence against anyone will not be tolerated.
  6. If you don't agree with these rules, don’t participate.
In an attempt to create an environment where all readers feel comfortable taking part in a productive dialogue, we reserve the right to remove any comments that violate the rules. Repeated violations of the rules may result in a ban of the offending party.
