Welcome to discussions. Unfortunately the guidelines have to be pretty strict, but it should help keep discussions clean and productive. The list of rules are short, so without further ado, let's get into them.
1. Post in the correct Categories.
2. Don’t intentionally cause drama or derail posts with unrelated info. Make a separate post if you want to talk about something else.
3. No personal attacks, on any grounds. There is a thin level of tolerance for jokes, but Moderators will not allow you to hide behind that as an excuse for particularly vile posts.
Failure to comply with these rules will result in your posts being deleted (or moved to appropriate Categories), & a warning will usually be issued. The rules are ordered by severity; increasing numbers of warnings may be given for the lighter infractions before a ban is levied. Repeated infractions will lead to longer bans.
