Australian RR Forums » Idler Chatter  

This topic was created as an acknowledgment of the community that has developed in this forum and the desire of forum members to chat about matters other than RR/B. Sadly the discourse herein has deteriorated markedly over time to the point where it is frequently inappropriate for public viewing, with content being unacceptable and offensive. This must stop.

Accordingly the continued availability of this topic is under review. Think very carefully about what you write here because the next time a post needs to be censored its writer is liable to be suspended, or the entire topic may simply be disabled. You can help avoid such a regrettable outcome by heeding the following.

The rules are fairly plain and should be self-evident to any civilised person:

Members will be kind, courteous, dignified and respectful in every way. No direct or indirect personal attacks or insults of any kind, toward any thing, will be allowed. Posts which antagonize, belittle or humiliate others will not be tolerated, nor will racism, sexism, misogyny, bigotry, foul language or encouragement of or incitement to illegal or violent acts. Politics, religion and sex are not to be discussed.

Threads or posts that ignore the above rules or do not generally meet standards of polite, law-abiding society are liable to be edited or deleted without notice or discussion. Repeated flouting of the rules or disputation of a Moderator's or Administrator's actions may incur disciplining of offenders or the outright disabling of this topic.
Attempts to 'lawyer' these rules will be viewed dimly, as will attempts to test their boundaries. The Moderator's or Administrator's decisions are indisputable and final and we have better things to do than to police your posts or argue the toss when we are obliged to.

Here are a few tips to guide you if you're still unsure of what the above means:
