Default PRC House rules (updated 04/14/18)

Moderators and Administrators have tried to permit some flexibility on rules enforcement in the section but some are abusing that freedom to the point that even the spirit of the rules is being trampled therefore let this serve as fair warning that the pendulum has swung too far and the rules will be enforced.

* Attack ideas, not other site users. Be sure of your facts and be ready to back them up.
* Do not allow yourself to fall for inflammatory "bait".
* Never fall into the trap of personal defamation.
* Rise above your opponent when they resort to the tactics in #2 and
* Be willing to concede, if necessary..
* Respectfully agree to disagree
* No posting of people’s private information, including but not limited to home location, family details, online references, etc
* No Attacks on people’s religions or non-beliefs.
* Racist comments.....obvious, implied or otherwise whether directed at a member or not, wil be deleted and warning/sanction given.
* Posts that change the OP remarks (fixed it) are not acceptable - When We spot them they will be deleted, if you spot them we ask that you report them.
* Personal insults will be deleted or edited out of posts - aggressive personal attacks / name calling laced with profanity to add emphasis, will be removed and a warning or sanction given.
* Threats of violence directed at the President or other officials are a violation of the law and are not permitted. Any violations will be deleted and warning / sanctions given.
* As always, opposing viewpoints and heated debate are the order of the day, but we can have heated, even passionate debate without resorting to vulgarities or threats, including threats of violence to other members.
* Members who create threads and fail to participate in the discussion indicating an intent to merely stir the pot / troll will have their threads moved to the BY and will receive a warning / sanction.

Any violation(s) will receive various levels of punitive action - subsequent violations will increase the punitive action which may include loss of posting privileges.

When reporting a post, please consider the following:

* Do not think that because your report has gone without action for 11 seconds that we are ignoring it. We may have not even seen it since we are volunteers and not always on the forum or in our email.
* When you report a post, insulting or harassing the moderators or admins will not speed up any action if such action is warranted. A report that reads, "I found this post to be directly insulting another forum member" is a whole lot less annoying than one that reads, "I found this post to be directly insulting another forum member, but I guess the mods are too lazy to care."
* The "elevator button mentality" (repeatedly pushing the button/reporting the post) doesn't make us respond any faster.
* If you post a personal attack on another user and they respond with a personal attack on you expect us to delete both attacks with sanctions to all members involved.
* Reporting posts to try and get someone banned because you don't like them probably won't result in the action you seek.
* This should be patently obvious, but one of the tried and true tricks to bait people on this forum into playground fights is the intentional misspelling of another member's forum name in an effort to be derogatory.

Some of you share content you see on other sites but please note that you should not repost copyrighted material in full but instead post an excerpt or a paraphrase and a link.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Default The "N" word(s) and their usage in threads

We recently set up the forum filter to block the words (**** and Negro) as it was used in posts. Several of you have found creative ways around that filter and while that is usually a bannable offense we have largely ignored it. We have taken another look at it and decided to remove the filter with the following restrictions.

You may use the words **** or Negro as long as it is used in a historical or political manner. If it is used to attack another member directly or indirectly we will issue sanctions in accordance with existing forum rules. As always moderator discretion will be used. Keep in mind moderator discretion may vary from one to the next so post accordingly.
