    Yeah that would be nice but I can't see it happening as sometimes its more fun to get down and dirty,as long as its not serious.

    All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in my post's are intentional.

    Pinning it, and changing the Topic Title to reflect the fact

    Thank you RF. I meant to post it here first. Took me awhile to find it, but I really needed the guidance it gives.

    Can't help thinking there was one important bit missed out.

    Don't post in particularly large, small or strange fonts. Large fonts are the equivalent of shouting, small/strange fonts can be hard to read. Any of these could easily be construed as rude. Given the font the article was set in, I doubt the author had given it much consideration.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    You do realize that most people will not read the article-- I for one tried to read it but I realized that I couldn not last.
    A suggestion for the future-- please do not make us read-- make us think.
    With all due respect--

    I thought it was sensible and I think I pretty much follow those rules most of the time...








    Although 'stfu you twat' just feels appropriate sometimes...

    I don't think I could 'make' anyone do anything. I don't really like the title....RULES of Engagement. Tis more of a guidline, for me, more than anyone else.

    Please delete it if it is a bother or insult. I am going to be judging some high school debates and when I went looking for refresher courses, I found this.

    I had no clue what IMO of IMHO meant .

    Couldn't have said it better although I prefer to say, "That statement contributes further into your idiocy."

    I didn't read the link because frankly it's just too long for something too uninteresting. Sorry this section doesn't need such a thing. I need to see some color in my and other's posts and handcuffing it would make this section feel stuffed shirt boring.

    So in conclusion....it's a shitty idea.
