With a few fresh faces here in the Politics forum, now is a good time to reiterate that the forum rules here are more relaxed than in other areas of the message board.

As I'm sure you all know, discussing sensitive issues such as religion or politics can cause intense disagreements and emotions. I would strongly encourage anyone that is getting upset or angry to walk away before posting things that might cause more tension. If necessary, write a response but don't post it, then wait a few hours and decide if the post is a good idea.

Try to remember that discourse is very important, and though we might not agree with what we read on the board, we should be respectful of other's views (even if they're wrong! :-))

I fully expect issues to arise in this part of the boards, and I fully expect a few verbal brawls. All we ask is to keep it "above the belt".

Thank you.

I would like to remind all SETIzens that if you find something offensive, use the Red X button and we will review. If you are unable to utilize self control, put the person on ignore. We are not a 24/7 police force so we cannot review every complaint immediately. Engaging with people that have upset you only serves to drag the entire flow of the discussion forums down.

The SETI Mod team thanks you for your understanding and cooperation.
