    Just curious. If you ran your own forum board, what would your rules be?

    Here's my short list:
    1. No spam or advertising of any kind.
    2. No religious or political talk.
    3. Use common sense.
    4. Have consideration for other members.

    5. No flames
    6. No offtopics except in off topics forum (i.e. Lounge)

    2 No religious or political talk.
    Why?

    I see other boards that do this and have never understood the need for censoring these topics. Wouldn't a better rule be: Only sensible discussion about religion and politics.

    Usually when you see blanket banning of certain subjects it's down to lazy modding. They can't be bothered to go that little extra to allow open discussion on all topics.

    Well, political debates are ok I guess, but you never know what religion a forum member might be, just don't talk about it.

    That would go under having consideration for other members.
