Notice

In the past, there may have been some things that were allowed to slide and some things may have been overlooked.

But, going forward from this point on, if there is any Rudeness, Hostility, Disrespect or insults of any kind. You will be pointed, added to a supreme directive or even banned if there are multiple instances of this.

It is important that all the rules are followed all the time. So, before anyone fix their lips to say "I didn't know".


I am telling you now; you all need to read and get familiar with the rules you all agreed to when you joined this board.



  • #1 - Avoid cases of unprovoked rudeness to others. No place for it here. Yes, with the dynamic nature of the threads and topics, tempers will flare and things will become heated from time to time. You may often encounter individuals who become passionate or emotional when expressing one's opinion or point of view. That's all understood and perfectly acceptable within reason…….but, start slamming or bashing another member and be met with consequences.
  • #2 - Derogatory racial remarks are simply unacceptable, period. Disrespect another's ethnic background and you will most certainly regret it.
  • #3 - Disrespect to others, IN GENERAL, will be considered an item of low tolerance, especially when posting in our coed forums. Follow the Golden Rule and treat others as you wish to be treated yourself. This applies to fellow members as well as staff. We do not require that you have respect for us, but we do require that you treat us respectfully in the public forums. If you feel the need to vent, gripe, or blow off some steam regarding a staff member's action or decision, we ask that you keep it private. Email, RTM, or the PM system would be the appropriate avenue to take in such cases. In cases where you would like to request additional clarity about a staff decision, you are free to pursue an answer in either a public forum or private means of communication. If handled publicly, post your inquiry in a respectful manner.
  • #4 - Blatant insults or hostility toward another member will be met with staff intervention. This applies to using our coed forums for name calling, personal attacks, or vulgar slang terms to describe fellow members. If you have legitimate concerns about another member here, share them tactfully in the appropriate private forums or with staff.

nice to see FINALLY! this section has gone so off the rails, it's pathetic. I never understood why the Political Forum was a bastion of hate and insults, left to fester for years. the same 15-20 guys hurling insults and curse words, like feces from a zoo animal. one would think the Political Forum would boast the most erudite and civil Hobbyists, but 95% of it is sewer muck.

Hey chung, do you want to ban all of the hateful, rude, hostile and disrespectful comments about Donald Trump? Just let 'em rip. They show how deranged some people are.

You've been here for years - why do you keep posting if insults bother you? Insults are de rigueur in the Political Forum. I'm much more bothered by the stupidity of the comments in between the insults. But you can't ban stupid, can you?

I can’t imagine Trump is off limits in the political forum. Anywhere in the world. The directive seems to say that.

I also understand how frustrating it might become for many to debate Trump issues without violating these rules. It might actually lead to a more level playing field. And a more enlightened community of whoremongers.

If people cannot insult Trump then I am in favor of the new rules.

The direction of this once proud nation toward the fecal matter of a third world excrement hole is disconcerting.

If I had to venture a guess Iíd rsay it had more to do with the torrent of of hate speech which has increased in recent months, corresponding not coincidentally with the gradual downfall of the current regime.

The only things in decline is the legacy of the previous administration and the quality of what today passes for *journalism*. Trump is doing just fine since kicking hildebeest's flabby ass in 2016.
