DEBATE CLUB GUIDELINES
We're changing the way this Debate Club works and giving you a bit more freedom to just debate without any structure. BUT THERE ARE SOME RULES:
# No vulgarity or profanity in any form will be tolerated.
# Don't call names, make personal attacks, or use negative stereotypes against other people or groups of people.
# No belittling of individual people, their character, or their motives.
# Only rebut issues, NOT the people who write them.
# Don't put words in other people's mouths that they have never said. (This does not, of course, prohibit quoting their words from previous posts.)
# Don't post on the public threads personal differences, arguments, or old grudges, etc.
# If you wish to participate, put on a thick skin before you do. Debates can get pretty heated and sometimes you won't like others' opinions and things that are said against an idea may feel like a personal slam whether or not it is.
ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am VERY serious about this. While abuse will not be tolerated, this is not a group for the faint of heart or those who are offended by opinions that go contrary to one's own. If things get too ugly, we'll change this to a private group or abandon the idea entirely.
