Forum Rules

Unread postby TheBlueFalconX » Tue Mar 03, 2009 5:52 pm

Turns out we don't need rules, so here they may or may not be:

1. You need not be an atheist to post on Rational Skeptics Society Forum. However, you do have to be an atheist to engage in our poker games at DVR's house every 2nd Friday into the new month.

2. You may create multiple threads for the same topic, but really... that's kinda annoying. If you would like to create a topic, there's a button that allows you to do so. You may or may not have to fill out a 30 min long survey on the founding of Cúcuta by Juana Rangel de Cuellar on June 17, 1773.

3. You don't have to post topics in the appropriate category, becuase we don't expect you to know where they should or shouldn't go if they border two topic options. For instance, complaining that these rules don't pwn enough should be done in the Integration Station, but is NOT limited to the I.S.

4. You may spam the forum with irrelevant content, because most of the time it can be amusing especially if the content is a lolcat. This includes creating topics simply to promote your free-energy scheme, etc.

5. "Bumping" is amazing. It allows others to understand you want to topic to be revisited should you be the last person to post and are waiting for a rebuttle or convo continuation of some sort.

6. This website is hosted, updated, maintained and moderated because we enjoy doing it. If you enjoy using it, you have the option of donating money but are not obligated to. You are people here, not dollar signs.

If you are unable to follow these 6 amazingly awesome rules, you will be encouraged to try harder. If you continue to offend, there is no real punishment because this is a forum where it's understood people have opposing viewpoints and volatile personalities. If you offend further, I will have you transferred to Yellowknife where you will have to shovel snow for a living.

(Def: snow - a type of precipitation in the form of crystalline water ice, consisting of a multitude of snowflakes that fall from clouds. It sucks to shovel this shit. Don't fuck with us.)


Thanks for reading and please enjoy your rule-mocking stay at Rational Skeptics Society Forum. :D

Cheers,

All of us here at the RSS!

Btw, if you haven't noticed this is sorta poking fun at the forum rules over at TAA.

#7 Commonsense is permitted but only when we agree with it. If we don't agree with your commonsense we will put you in "prison" where the only punishment is the word "prisoner" appearing above all of your posts.

I want to add a serious rule, if I may?

Discussion, debate and conversation are organic. The topics may change, but the flow of conversation shouldn't! So everyone should enjoy the agreements and disagreements of others here, no-one should feel that they can't post because of the topic title!
"If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men."
