While it's obvious to regular visitors that two sets of rules apply on this forum -- i.e. rightwing whiners like Quicon and Fogbrain can say and do anything while nonrightwingers are told to "quit *****ing" and "hope this teaches you a lesson", I thought it would be helpful to have a clarification of the rules for any unsuspecting newcomer (make that nonrighty). 1. While it's "against the rules" to have more than one login, exceptions are made if one is a rightwinger. See: Luke aka Obi-wan aka Quigon aka foul mouthed righty. 2. While it's okay for racists to make racist statements such as "black men compete to see how many babies they can have by different women" and "blacks devalue education" and "blacks value violence", one shouldn't characterise these racists as racists. 3. I'm not exactly certain when a racist righty can be desribed as such within the "rules" of this forum. Can BelichickFan be described as a racist if he states "I hate blacks" or would such a characterisation be a "personal attack" 4. "Personal attacks are against the rules". Please note that a "personal attack" is whatever "offends a righty" and need not have any basis in reality. Factual statements such as referring to a cult as ...well a cult, will be deemed "personal attacks" if they offend the delicate unbalanced psyche of any righty. Actual personal attacks against nonrighties, such as FTW's calling NEM an "American hating Democrat" is A-OK. 5. Related to point 4 - one may not call a public figure who fits the legal definition of a pedophile a pedophile unless one wants to be banned, if that public figure is the false idol of a righty. However, one can make any kind of remarks against nonrighty public figures, even when such remarks have no factual basis. 6. Making physical threats and going on rage filled vile rants is A-OK, so long as you're a righty making these physical threats against a nonrighty. 7. Never forget - the rules in this forum are tools to be used to silence speech that are offensive to righties (i.e. facts, logic) so to ensure that righties can promote their propaganda and hatred with as little challenge as possible.
