Since the founding of the group many debates have been had. Most debates have been constructive and peaceful between the people involved but a few have spiraled out of hand and descended into flame wars. Please let it be noted that this sort of behavior in the future will not be acceptable for both users and moderators. Users caught being offensive and insulting their opponents will be warned about their behavior and subsequent warnings may result in temporary bans and finally a permanent ban unless decided otherwise. The same also applies to any moderator caught breaking the code who will also end up having their status as moderator removed if they continue to break the code. Now let us go back over the Code of Conduct: (please note that the endnotes on each code is the reference point)
- No profanity (CC.1)
- No trolling (CC.2)
- No remarks or pictures with the intention of being offensive (CC.3)
- Personal debates, or specific ones, MUST take place in the forums. (CC.4)
- Respect each other's views.(CC.5)
- Be respectful.(CC.6)
- Be constructive.(CC.7)
- No misquoting. (Re-wording a user's quotes) (CC.8)
- No biased sources to present as evidence for argument(CC.9)
Just because someone disagrees with your view doesn't give you the right to insult. Simply explain why you think they are wrong and use evidence (if available) to prove your point. TheTriangulum (Cognosco)- as admin and group founder - has the right to use whatever admin powers necessary against any breaking these rules.
Remember the Code of Conduct at all times when within this group. Happy debating!
