"Note that you are expected to make use of the "notify moderator" button underneath each post in the event that you find a post you feel violates these guidelines. You are not to reply in kind as that will be just as much a violation regardless of the fact that it's a reply."
Pushing this button is not an automatic guarantee of action, it is only an automatic guarantee of review and judgement. In general, we try to keep a fairly open and even-handed approach to moderation in order to foster as much freedom of expression as possible without stepping over the line into unneeded negativity or personal insults. All posts will be reviewed with this standard in mind.
- Hour by hour resolve firmly, like a Roman and a man, to do what comes to hand with correct and natural dignity, and with humanity, independence, and justice. Allow your mind freedom from all other considerations.- Marcus Aurelius-Roman Emperor A.D. 121-180
