OK, it's time we set down some guidelines in writing.

First - profanity.  The following swear words are not allowed:
- The c-word
- Both f-words
- The s-word
- The n-word

If you have any doubts about what any of those words might be, PM me.

Second - Excessive Hyperbole.  Enough referring to the mods as Nazis.  The Nazis were responsible for the deaths of countless people.  None of the mods have killed anybody.  Constructive criticism of the mods is fine, but if you're obnoxious about it, it's not gonna fly any more.

Third - Personal Attacks.  Don't attack other forum posters.

Fourth - Sexually Oriented Content.  We're not going to delete every post with the word "penis" in it.  But if you cross the line of common sense, of what's acceptable and what isn't, then it's going to get deleted.  Ultimately, this is the most subjective rule (the alternative is to ban all sexually oriented topics, which I'm sure isn't the wish of everybody as a whole), so if you have doubts, don't post it, or PM me first.

If you have any doubts about what you're about to post, don't post it, and PM me or Mikado first.  The "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission" line won't fly here.

Everyone can consider this their official notification, and nobody should be claiming lack of knowledge for the rules of the board.

Rules on duplicate accounts and the discussion surrounding the new rule.

That's only because you're, so far, a bunch of power-hungry nerds opressing an innocent internet forum. Now, if you only had guns...

Even H***** had a modest start.

Bugger this, why isn't the b-word on the list? Or the other b-word?

I'm still not sure what you mean by the c word. Does it end in -unt?

I would quote Morgan's post and add "lol" to it but the last time I quoted an offensive post said by someone else the mods unjustly gave me a maximum infraction (10 points).  So I'll just say that I had a reflex chuckle at Morgan's post.

Good thinking, Lewis. Since "Papen" isn't an infractable word yet.

Well, there was that one time that Sam Spade...oh, we're not supposed to talk about that.

Seriously, though, in what universe is comparing people to Nazis appropriate behavior?

Depending on exact context, either all, many, or none.

Didn't someone have a sig with a photo of Nuremberg and the defendants labeled as mods? I thought that was pretty funny.

I find restricting comparisons to Nazis more repugnant than the comparisons to Nazis themselves. But then again I love freedom and hate fascism, so maybe it's just me?

Eh...I would compare you to a ham-handed incompetent authoritarian that drove one of the best countries in Latin America into the ground, but you put him in your sig so you appear to be proud of that.
