We have again evaluated a few of the religion 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 such topic has sailed smoothly without abusing, insulting a 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.
Interestingly, the opinion of one set of members was that it was only a few sensitive members who missed out the objective of the criticism and took it personally. But fact is all sides did the same. 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 Section Dev Team has taken a unilateral decision ' Hindu- Muslim-Christianity topics touching upon anything be it 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 here. 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 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.
