Riposte & Parry Rules

Riposte & Parry Forum Rules

Please read this post very carefully before posting your agreement to the terms.

The Ripost and Parry is a private forum for serious discussions. The forum is visible as read-only to the main board.

This forum offers a venue for serious discussions, including some of the tougher topics such as abortion. Existing threads will not be carried over to this new forum. You can, as you see fit, start a duplicate topic to one found on the main board.

You are free to voice your arguments as strongly as you like, but you must do so in a reasonably thoughtful and intelligent manner. Breaking any of the following rules will result in termination of your access to this forum.

1. No personal attacks/name-calling/ridicule/taunts/accusations of lack of comprehension, and so on. You can attack an opposing opinion with your own opinion, but slams against character, etc., are prohibited.

2. Off-topic comments/pictures/videos will not be tolerated, Keep on topic.

3. Cut-and-paste articles are not acceptable, except for brief excerpts to support your view.

4. Links are permitted to support your point, but posts containing only a link or cut-and-paste are not permitted.

5. No smiley faces/emoticons are to be used in this forum.

6. Please avoid overuse of the quote feature. Quote only the part of a post that is relevant to your comment. No nested quotes. If you see that the quote is not needed for reference because your post immediately follows the one you're quoting, edit your post to remove the quote.

7. Occasional on-topic humour is fine, but please ensure that it does not derail the thread.

If you are feeling very angry over a topic, consider taking a deep breath before posting. It is also strongly recommended that you preview your posts to make sure you are following the above guidelines.

If you break the rules, you will lose access, and it will not be easy, or necessarily possible, to regain entry.

Your agreement to these rules must be posted in this thread immediately upon gaining access to this forum. NO OTHER comments are to be made in this thread other than your agreement to the terms.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
