Political and philosophical challenges and the like are strictly forbidden here.
While I am very strong believer in free speech, I also believe that like-minded people should have the opportunity to share their beliefs and commonality with each other in peace.

That's where this forum comes in. This forum is a safe-haven. It's an area for like-minded people to get together to share their common interest without opening themselves and their beliefs to challenges and attacks by those who disagree.

The rules are pretty simple (these are in addition to the main OLS Site and Forum Rules):
  1. Political and philosophical challenges and attacks are not allowed here. If you want to have a political or philosophical discussion, take it to the Politics or other appropriate forum.

  2. Groups and threads premised on hatefulness, illegal activity or the harassment of others are not allowed.

Other than that, please enjoy yourselves and know that you are all welcomed here!

This forum has been in existence for 24 hours and we've already had a few people screwing around to see how far they can go to harass a particular group.

Rating a group's thread with a single star or posting an innocent looking "hello" message may not be against the rules in and of themselves. But when you do it with the intent of harassing a group with which you've had prior disagreements, it is.

You can try to be as cute or as slick about it as you want, but we're just not going to put up with it. The moderators and myself are going to ban anyone we think is trying to harass another group in this forum and we're not going to waste our time with warnings or other such pleas for you to follow our rules.

Knock it off, please.
