Hello Everyone, The last week has been a perfect storm of me travelling heavily for work on the east coast, forum members pushing the boundaries of decorum, and certain posters having very thin skins. During this time, posters were reporting posts over and over that weren't a violation of anything other than whatever sensibilities you possess. Here are the P&R rules Here are some rules for the board as a whole that will get you flat banned across all of ASFN. These are directly copied those parts from the Cardinals board that seem to be relevant here: Now for some other things: Moderators The only moderators for this forum are Linderbee, LVG, and Krepitch. These moderators are of different political leanings and will frequently discuss how to handle things. Any other moderator/admin you see in this forum is just a poster who visits this part of the board. They can and should feel free to express their opinions, just like any other poster. They do not award strikes and do not moderate this part of the board. The three mods of this board do not read every post in here. We are unpaid volunteers with lives outside of ASFN. We rely on the posters here to report posts for us to investigate. You can also just PM us if you like. That being said, you need to consider when reporting a post if it actually violates the rules. This forum, by its nature, is confrontational. If you throw out an opinion and someone responds to it, you don't get to report them like you are the victim. I see through that game. That means you may discuss, debate, and even argue but you don't get to directly attack people. When you post in this forum, you understand that you are entering an area where debates will happen and can get heated. It is up to you to maintain decorum here. That includes responding to other's opinions, even if they are outrageous or anathema to your own beliefs. I personally do not want an "echo chamber" in here. This board should be welcome to everyone from one end of the political spectrum to the other.
