No Politics or Religion posts or topics!

 

Members, aka Highlanders, are directed to Discussion, Civility. Moderation, and Moderation where Scot (SNF forums owner) said:

 

YOU are responsible for what you post on these forums. There are *plenty* of places on the Internet that would completely welcome your left-leaning or right-leaning political views.

 

To be frank, I'm really disappointed too that people who are otherwise nothing but helpful and courteous rapidly get out of hand when emotionally-charged, non-computer-oriented issues are discussed here. If we could do so as adults, without leveling charges at one another, without branding candidates as "Marxist" or other similar hyperbolic epithets, I would love nothing more than to be the host of mature discussion on non-computer topics.

 

Scot further pointed out:

 

No one of us has the right to decide that he or she is 100% right about non-factual issues. None of us has a crystal ball; none of us can read another's mind or has omniscience. For us to discuss such things as adults -- without applying labels, jingoism, inserting barbs, and heading down the path toward flame wars -- we must first respect one another's opinions.

 

Again, Members, aka Highlanders, are directed to Scot's full posting here: Discussion, Civility. Moderation, and Moderation
