In the Debate and Serious Discussion forum, you may discuss subjects that are of a mature and meaningful nature. However, some rules must be followed.

1. In debates, do not hit below the belt; ie, no cheap shots.

2. No vulgarity.

3. You should be able to back up your opinions with supporting facts and sound logic. However, also be open-minded to what other people consider as strong supporting facts. Just because you think Alternative Science Monthly is filled with lies does not necessarily make it so.

4. Respect the fact that not everyone is going to agree with you. You are entitled to your opinion and you have every right to express it; just remember that everyone else has those same rights.

5. Only topics of a serious nature should be discussed here.

6. Ability to post in this forum is a privilege, not a right.

7. Your grammar must be good.

No one should feel that their opinions don't count; they do. No subject matter will be denied here. With that said, if you offend with flagrant flaming, derogatory rhetoric and overall bad form; the post will be deleted!
