Here are few rules to be followed at this forum at all times:-
1. Comments If you don't agree with a posters comment it is unreasonable to openly attack them E.g - Unacceptable comment: 'You must be stupid if you think'' (Use of the word stupid here, is attacking a person) E.g. Acceptable comment: 'You obviously don't understand (topic) because (reasons/examples)' Or 'you have the wrong impression of (topic) because (explanation)' Here you refrain from attacking a person but are able to express your views on what they have said rather than their persona.
2. Stereotyping/name-calling It is acceptable to point out the similarities that groups (such as religious belief systems) share only if you have reasonable arguments to back this up but be careful of labelling a poster in a particular way because of his/her membership in a particular group. Posts which resort to name-calling will be edited or deleted.
3. Religious Flaming/hatred/threats If a post serves no purpose other than inciting anger/conflict amongst other posters based on beliefs, or if such posts contain statements made about beliefs, if posted with supportive evidence which is not propaganda (see below), they will be deleted. Hatred and threatening posts displayed towards another poster will also be deleted.
4. Preaching Posting of topics with a bias view towards one religion will be deleted. Such posts may include where one may be basing a view 'My god is bigger than your god' Or making comparisons between 2 religions and pointing out strengths and weaknesses in both. These posts are seen as offensive and may incite anger/conflict amongst other posters.
5. Propaganda Demonstrating a bias view towards people's beliefs (for or against) using links or word for word copy of sources such as books, websites or articles is seen in a negative light. In a discussion you should post your views and what you think (In respect with the rules). Members posting original views will be regarded with greater respect. Material found to be unoriginal would be removed. Articles that examine issues without clear biased views towards religious beliefs are welcome.
We hope everyone adheres to these rules and look forward to your participation in discussions.
