Unprovoked personal attacks will not be tolerated; terms such as “stupid, idiot, moron etc.” and the like will never be tolerated. Continual harassment and or “baiting” of a member of the community or members of the staff will also result sanctions and possible banning from the forum. While we understand that some topics will result in heated discussion, and emotion, please try to respect others opinions and refrain from personal attacks. This will be moderated at the discression of the staff.
