Posting anything in this forum constitutes agreement to these rules, which are designed to keep debate civilized and productive.

  1. Keep an open mind. (Indicators that your mind is not open include phrases such as, "I don't think we'll ever agree on this," and "I'm never going to change my mind.")
  2. Attempt to comprehend one anothers' points of view even when we disagree.
  3. Respect the limitations of text as a medium by saying what you mean. (Text does not convey tone of voice, facial expression, or body language, which makes miscommunication more likely. Avoid sarcasm, and assume other people also mean what they say, no less and no more.)
  4. Post only when you have something new to add to the discussion. (This may include clarifying a point you have previously made by presenting an example, but not simply repeating yourself.)
  5. Avoid logical fallacies. If others use them, point out which fallacy they have fallen prey to, and give them the opportunity to rephrase or reframe their argument.

Logical fallacies:

Responses that violate these rules may be deleted, either partially (to remove the offending section) or wholly (if the post does not make sense without that section).
