News And Current Events Forum Guidelines
Per the MDC User Agreement, “Through your direct or indirect participation here you agree to make a personal effort to maintain a comfortable and respectful atmosphere for our guests and members.” News and Current Events can lead to passionate discussions and strong feelings, but we require members post respectfully at all times.
To help create a more positive and comfortable atmosphere:
- Don’t be a jerk.
- You, and you alone, are responsible for your posts. No one can make you post anything, nor do they force your hand to be rude, sarcastic or in any way violate the UA.
- No abortion debate.
- Take a moment to reread what you wrote before posting.
We will not host discussions that involve explicit sexual references and are cautious about discussions on volatile topics such as abortion, religion and race. We do not host abortion debate. Politics discussions are welcome; however, this is an open forum for all members to discuss all aspects of politics together. Political tribe threads will not be hosted.
If you see a thread or post that you feel is inappropriate, please utilize the report button rather than posting to the thread itself. Feel free to PM the forum’s moderators with questions, comments or suggestions about this forum.
We reserve the right to adjust the guidelines as needs arise and to further clarify the guidelines to ensure an informative, educational and respectful environment. We look forward to a lot of great discussions. Thank you for your participation!
