As the SFNL forums are adding new members every day, I felt this might be a good time to remind everyone of the purpose of this forum, the Water Cooler. Quoted above is our "general charter", but I want to make one additional point. We do not consider the Cooler as an "anything goes" forum. It is intended as a place for the members to post topics that don't fit easily within the predefined forums. All the forum rules still apply here. And we expect posters to exhibit the same civility, common sense and consideration of others that they would posting in any other forum.Throughout the forums we try to keep moderation as unobtrusive as possible. However, in the Cooler, due to some very contentious subjects that get posted here, we are more pro-active. Our intention is that no member be offended or driven away by comments posted here. When we observe posts that undermine that intention, we remove them. We encourage lively debate, but when that turns into flame wars or harassment of other members, we will step in.As always, if you ever have a question about the content of a post, yours or someone else's, please contact one of the moderators. We've provided a "Moderator Feedback" thread for that purpose. You may also wish to send a "Personal Message" to a moderator. Either is a great way to get answers to your questions concerning posts, board problems, whatever is on your mind. With your help, SFNL Forums will stay one of the premier forums on the web.
The place to post stuff that has absolutely nothing at all to do with computers, broadband, Scot's Newsletter, or anything that's "supposed" to be here.
