DELETIONS

The board is intended to be tolerant about reasonable subject matter, but not a "free for all" to air dirty linen or petty arguments. ("Get a room!) Cross-board "flame" wars cannot be allowed. Deletions without explanation are a "last ditch effort" by the moderators. The board policy does not include public "spanking" or formal banning or public discussion of the rules. For complaints or alerts about poster behavior, send a confidential email to the moderators from the link above.

-- Typical deletions might include:

* Attempts to take control of the board;
* Obstructive rules arguments/complaints;
* Incoherent or obscure posts;
* Confusing upper case, lower case patterns;
* Stalking or "outing" other poster privacy;
* Anonymous, suspicious, disruptive trolls;
* Multiple "handles" by obvious trolls;
* URL links posted without any comments;
* Thread shows a subject but no body (nm);
* Thread hijacked with off-topic responses;
* Offensive "gutter" language;
* References to offensive sex acts;
* Intimate details of personal sex life or ability;
* Discussions or speculation about sexual orientation;
* Attacks on non-criminal private sexuality;
* Attempts to incite violence;
* Attempts to raise money for any cause;
* Trying to use board for political recruiting;

AN EXPLANATION

Click here to read true freedom goals. However, an "opinion only" forum depends on democratic "free speech" guarantees that, by definition, cannot support any physical action anywhere. The tight rules are the result of years of observation of "what went wrong" on other boards to cause disruptive conflict and discourage participation. For a pro-forma protocol reference to time-tested acceptable meeting behavior, see "Robert's Rules Of Order".
