Forum Rules
« on: November 04, 2018, 03:00:33 PM »
I was recently informed that I had run afoul of a rule (or someone's opinion that amounts to the same thing) that requires me to respond to a members post.  Certain members here offend me so I chose not to respond.  This cost me several days on the beach.

I looked but did not find a list of rules for the forum.  Are there any forum rules that I should be aware of or will I just find out about them when someone doesn't like what I say?  Thanks.

My gun collection has killed at least five fewer people than the Kennedy clan has with airplanes, automobiles and golf clubs.

Check you PM's you should have got a PM tell you why you got a 3 day timeout.  I am sure Solar (Admin) will follow up with you on this.

You are a guest in my House. Yes, I own this forum, and the last person you want to ignore is your host.
Now do you get it?

I know exactly why I got the suspension.  I was asking about a list of rules.  So far the only rule I know about is that I'm not allowed to ignore a certain person who is listed as member (not admin) of the forum.

You have anything or not?  Thanks.

No, you are not allowed to ignore your host, but if you ignore others, then I see no reason for you to post, it really is that simple.
As to libs always needing a list of rules? I don't get it, Conservatives already know the rules to life, why is it libs always need everything spelled out?
And to answer your question, no, there are no rules, there are laws however, and it's incumbent upon you to know them. Copyright and slander, to name a couple.
