Where are the forum rules?
« on: April 14, 2016, 05:26:15 PM »
I was just suspended for a rule I didn't know existed. Since I've been back, I've been looking for the rules list. Can't find it.

Back up your post(s) with facts and data when ask.  This is a TEA Conservative Political Forum.  It is not a Romper Room Debate Forum.™

The rules are based in Conservative values, like commonsense and courtesy.
If someone makes an outlandish claim and another member asks for proof and not just an opinion piece, then the member making the claim must show proof or admit it's a bull shit claim.

You see, we are a fact based forum, one that insists all members tell the truth, even when it's not in favor of our preferred candidate, because to do otherwise not only makes us look like Trumpets and Libs, it destroys the credibility of the forum.
So whatever you were asked to back up, I suggest you back it up, or admit it was probably just a bunch of fluff  that you should never have repeated in the first place.
Politicians can lie all they want, but our members are held to a much higher standard.

A political discussion board should be respectful between it's members, and leave personal attacks out of it. 

Everyone has their own opinion on issues, but when your stating something as fact or news, a link better shows the reader what you base your opinion/fact/news on. 

Also when responding to a particular post, there is a quote button at the top right coroner of that post, so the reader can follow what it is your responding to.  Many times threads start out with a subject, but over the discussion different points come up, that have nothing to do with the title of the thread, but are normal in discussion.  However, without the quote, some reply's just look disjointed and confuse the reader trying to follow your point.

 
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but the citizens capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency.

Reason the key to the vast majority of political forums is respect for the members. Both Solar and Dori have posted common sense 'rules' that can be found on most forums. Basically treat other members as you want to be treated.

Forum features, such as the quote function, are there for a reason - use them. No one wants to guess who you are quoting.

Lastly always, always cite your sources. Opinions are not facts!

The vast majority of us have been involved with forums for many years and these simple 'rules' are second nature to us. When instructed by a mod or admin to do something, it's a good idea to do it.

One thing I will give you. You are fervent in your support of Trump, but trying to convince a group of constitutional Conservatives that a dies hard liberal is a conservative is futile.
