As most know, any mention of political or racial issues in the main forum are not allowed. We do allow that in Taboo which we allow access by request to those who have been with us for, at least, six months. In the past, I've been fairly loose with this rule. I would either delete such posts or move the thread to Taboo. With more and more racial comments being reported, and more I've found on my own, along with the election season driving up the likelihood of political comments being made, I've decided to crack down on this issue. Expect any comments which are either racial or political to result in a warning of two points. Remember, once someone hits 10 warning points, they are banned until the earliest warning expires. Any warning lasts for four months. The above applies to the Shoutbox as well, except, there is no warning system tied to it. The only option I have is to ban the member from the Shoutbox.
