If you can’t behave civilly, if you post in a thread attempting to start an argument, participate in an ongoing argument, or bring an argument from one thread to another, you will be banned. Pushing a point based on substance is okay (in the appropriate place), disagreements on substance are fine and to be expected. If your post is intentionally incendiary, however, or you can’t control your temper during a debate and cannot avoid disparaging those who disagree, you will be banned.
If it’s questionable, you will be warned, and if it’s questionable more than once, those warnings will temporarily mute you, and you risk a ban.
Posting in a way that makes your message difficult to read will result in warnings and eventual silencing or banning if you continue. Examples include tiny text, obnoxious colors and quotes with no additional message. ("+1" or “I agree” does not count as an additional message)
Derailing threads, especially intentionally or with image macros, will get you warnings. Doing so repeatedly or obsessively, especially if on the same topic, will get you banned.
Insults and hostility to other users will not be tolerated. Insults and hostility against segments of the fanbase will not be tolerated.
If you can’t control your behavior, you will be silenced or removed.
If you see violations of this policy, do not get directly involved - report the violation, and move on.
