OK I'll try (with your help, and Curm's okey-dokey) to come up with some rules and "ettiquite guidelines" for posting here.
I like to cuss like a sailor, so that's not gonna be a problem.
Obviously, anything that my vast experience watching Law & Order tells me is libelous (haha, like I know what that means) is gonna get deleted.
Basically, what I want from the rules is:
- nobody gets so offensive/offended that it starts to drive posters away
- nobody threatens anybody's "real" stuff; body, money, job, family, etc
- nobody gets sued, or gets a letter from a lawyer
- nobody who doesn't want their identity "outed" is outed
I'll also reserve the right to "lock" any thread that I've decided has become a useless flame war (after it stops being fun, anyway). Try not to get all pissed off if that happens to you. Wait til it happens to somebody else, then it'll be funny (I promise).
As moderator, I'll do my best not to get involved in the flaming but that doesn't mean that I'll never suggest your mother was not married.
I have a pretty high bar for "offensive" so please let me know by Private Message if you're deeply offended about something.
Let me repeat, I reserve the right to lock any thread I damn well please. That said, I'll always have a reason for why I did so. Absolutely everyone should feel completely free to PM me and bitch if you think I was unfair.
I'll be far less likely to delete a thread or ban a poster; that will only be done upon discussion with Curm and only when necessary.
I hope you folks feel like you can trust me to be a fair moderator. Again, if you feel I've wronged you please let me know.
