These are the rules we all agreed to when we joined this forum, they still apply today.
As some of you have noticed Admin is restructuring the Forum to be more in line with it's beginnings, as a discussion group to share ideas and info in a polite and friendly enviroment. in keeping with that I am posting a simple reminder of the rules.

Since there has been a rash of these and with the elections looming I think it's time to remind everyone of one aspect of the rules, rule 3 to be exact.

The clever little nicknames used for Hillary, Obama, McCain, Kerry, Bush etc. are neither helpful nor allowed. While I understand that we have politicians that we dislike, distrust or just think are crooks, calling them names like 'Hitlery' 'Obama-sama' or 'the Manchurian Candidate' does not serve any positive purpose.

Frankly it makes us look a bit foolish and childish, not an image that we need to project.

Because of this and as a reminder I wanted to draw your attention to this part of Rule 3:

Non-Second Amendment political discussion will be kept civil, polite and respectful just as Second Amendment political discussion has been expected to be. Sarcastic or insulting terms or images used in regards to elected officials will not be allowed. It doesn’t matter if it is Bush, Clinton, Cheney, Pelosi or our own State Senators, the clever names and sarcastic comments do not make us look anything other than childish. You do not have to respect the person but we expect you to respect the Office. If you can not your post will be removed, repeated removals will cause your account to be closed.

Thank you.
