We all know that politics can get heated, so there is some leeway in the general rule regarding "polite disagreement".  

Popping into a thread for the sole purpose to flame, is a NO NO.  

Popping into a thread for the sole purpose to complain that the thread exists, is a NO NO.

Popping into a thread to complain that the POLITICS section exists, is a NO NO.  

Making false reports about staff or another user, is a NO NO.   If you claim that someone called you a "faggot nigger", you had better have proof.  Remember, I can see the original posts and edited posts.  

If you routinely post nothing but childish comments that do nothing to further the discussion, that is a NO NO.  

If you can't or won't further the discussion, then ignore this section.  

If you want to call your "enemy" a cunt or the like, take it elsewhere.

Don't be petty.  A disagreement here should not mean that you refuse to fulfill a re-seed request.   Nor should it mean you get into a flame fest in the cooking section.  

NEITHER SIDE IS EXEMPT FROM THE RULES.  

Don't expect me to see every offending post, use the report button.

I want to clarify something.  

When I post, I am posting as myself.  

HOWEVER,  if my post looks like   police <insert text here>  police   then I am posting as the forum admin.  

Of course, all posts in the rules section are forum admin posts.

Please stop using "tard".   

I'm sure you can find another descriptive name for the other side.

Thank you! I really agree with this. Stick to liberals and conservatives. Let's keep some level of maturity even though things can get heated. You don't earn any extra points for insulting your opponent in such a childish way. I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of sanction if this is ignored repeatedly. It adds nothing to the discourse.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short.
But shout it at them in German, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Should a rule be added regarding spamming threads/posts? I'm seen one user post multiple times in a row on the same thread when he could have modified the original post.

If possible, perhaps the forum system can be changed so that posts are merged if they are both by the same user and posted one after another.

That would be nice.   

Maybe I'll have to start editing threads for this.

Attacks on children should also be banned on this forum. For the sake of civility, can we please leave innocent children out of this? One thread was closed because it was an attack on our current president's family, yet there is a thread on here now attacking the Obama children yet it's still up. I'm reporting it and hopefully this isn't tolerated since it wasn't tolerated when someone attacked #45's children and grandchildren on here.

Children are allowed to be attacked, but only if they themselves have done wrong.     "Sins of the father" type stuff is banned.

"Attack" in this case means criticize/critical of.   This is things like GWB's daughters underage drinking with secret service protection. 


You are not allowed to do baseless attacks on kids because of their parents.

"we just removed the (for some people offending) recent forum topics from our homepage."

we reserve the right to discourage people from discussions because we can make the word "polite" can be used to mean anything we want it to. 

We will say that both sides are subject to the rules but fail when we inevitably show our bias in trying to police the large amount of content here.

Please show me where I've been acting in a biased manner as admin.

I started my own thread on this.  https://forum.gaytorrent.ru/index.php?topic=51089.0
I think it is too much for the moderator to be editing multiple posts by the same user before others can reply, but there should be some guidelines put into place and enforced. Like giving them a time-out if they repeatedly violate the guidelines after several warnings.  Even one reply might be permissible for clarification but 3, 3 and 5 in a row is just ridiculous.

I agree, I've also seen posts where there's between 3 and 7 replies in a row by the very person who started the thread, which is borderline outrageous. I back up the call for more guidelines put into place and enforced on this issue.

I know what you are getting at and I somewhat agree.. but you seem to only complain when certain people do it.  The two worst offenders in recent history are DrAss and Sutieday.   One of the things hat has driven me nuts for decades is when people make empty messages with no relevant content that amount to pure spam.  I remember when I used to do real time chats with people.. and I would have 3 computers running at once, trying to get things done, and someone would keep leaving tiny turd comments such as "OH?"   or "LOL" on the chats causing an alert to go off interrupting my train of thought.
