Please read the rules mentioned in this topic before posting in Debate mansion. Do adhere to the rules mentioned in the link below in order to avoid corrective actions from DM's development team. Any concerns PM DM Dev or GM's.
Regarding some ground rules :
We have again evaluated a few of the India Pakistan related sensitive issue threads of the recent past in this section. Our inference is that, not one single topic was able to maintain a rational debating and each one turned into a battleground and hurt the sentiments.
Not one single India – Pakistan, Hindu-Muslim topic has sailed smoothly without abusing, insulting a country or religion or attacking members. Members haven't been able to stick to the topics objectively and radical behavior has taken the drivers seat while objectivity paled into oblivion. Here are a few of those "derailed threads":
Interestingly, the opinion of one set of members (During our interaction with them on PM) was that it was only a few sensitive members who missed out the objective of the criticism and took it personally.
A while back there was a topic pointing fingers at India's action and this time it was few of these very members who took it personally and crossed lines of debating and resorted to personal attacks. Pakistanis are not allowed in Mumbai hote This proves yet again, that NO ONE can take criticism of their own country in a rational way and keep the debate on track. Last week we saw how a topic on issues in Mahabharata (Were Pandavas cheaters?) affected the sentiments of many and we received several complaints on them. Some voiced it directly in the thread while others chose to PM it or report it.
In all these debates, a lot of personal attacks have taken place, many a line of decency has been crossed, many sentiments have been hurt and many IF COC rules have been broken.
So, henceforth , the Debate Mansion Dev Team has taken a unilateral decision – Hindu- Muslim-Christianity, India Vs. Pakistan, topics touching upon harboring terrorism, criticism of religion or culture, or any such sensitive topic whether published as articles, or featured in global television, or hot enough to be debated SHALL NOT be allowed to be posted or discussed at Debate Mansion. If anyone finds a topic like that posted here, you will simply report it and post no comments in favor or against it. Bottom line is - no mudslinging, personal attacks, sarcastic insinuations or abuse of any country, culture, creed or religion shall be entertained here.
If there is any personal attack, that post will not be replied to by the other party and this personal debate or "verbal kabaddi" will not be allowed. If you find the post distasteful, copy it, as well as the page link and PM it to any member of the DM DT or GM's. Or simply report it. We will take necessary action. Third parties, you will do the same, simply REPORT. No personal advice to any on the threads.
Any member found violating the rules will be dealt with very strictly and will receive the warning meter right away. No personal attack , direct or indirect digs, sarcastic insinuations or defense is allowed .If any member here who is a participant in the debate is found breaking this rule will surely face the warning meter.
Hope that clarifies our stand. Also as per this new rule all such topics now open or posts made on the same issues will be taken care of as the DT feels best, by either trashing those posts or closing the topics.
Debate Mansion Dev Team.

Additionally based past / current posts as of Feb 07 2008.
Acknowledge following point as heads up and warning to maintain forums decorum based on members inputs, questioning DM's tolerance level , reports and considering supposedly matured adults here
Feel free to PM DM Dev team for clarifications, we are not goin to tolerate profanity, spamming and personal remarks any more. Please refrain.
In the pretext many of the recent very insensitive, inconsiderate, decorum breaker topics and posts, that are related to Terror Attacks in India, we feel the need for this post to warn and remind our dear members on the rules
It is sad to see that because of few members, who solely intend to dismantle decorum sensible / matured members are also defaulting.
We assure strict actions on defaulters, henceforth, so please be reminded. Humble request to ALL! Keep this place for what we love it and have considerate/intellect/informatics debates OR arguable discussions while enjoying the fun.
Any concerns / suggestions / questions PM me.
Seek your cooperation and help!!
