All,

We have an amazing thing going on here! However, we are getting more and more reports of personal attacks and name calling.
For those that are new posters, after 250 posts and 30 days, a new area will open up for you that allows that type of behavior - if you can handle it. :)

Please remember that not everyone agrees and sometimes it feels personal but it should not be. That's why we are here, what makes the other side tick?
We post opinions or even better, some of our best posters back their ideas up with facts!

Our public areas are for civil discussion. We have an old saying around here, "Attack the post and not the poster".

Let's all stop take a deep breath and move back to civility in the public areas please.

Thanks!

Schweddy aka Vauge aka HMWIC

Be careful what you wish for. Oh, just a heads up, there are some limits there also but ya really have to try hard.

When the discussion turns into people posting just the quote of the opponent with a picture of a baby crying, and the response is in kind, it's past time to take it somewhere else.

Unless your one of us who has to try really hard just to stay within the limits even down there.

True, some find it impossible no matter how loose the rules, they have an answer for that also, it involves fire.

Yes, and that place is the Waffle House in downtown Cleveland.

Fortunately I have kept my warning points somewhat in check so far.
I tend to just read the posts down there, the tone is really not my thing.

This isn't an advertisement for the Basement people, this is a reminder that incivility and attacking each other upstairs is not what DebatePolitics is all about.
