First guideline:
1. Don't spew personal insults.

I posted that I doubted Jasmine could follow the guidelines for very long. That wasn't a personal insult, it was a prediction of her future behavior on LNF based on her past behavior.


You insulted her by insinuating that she wasn't capable of being civil. That's not focusing on issues, that's focusing on posters.

You're insulting her whether you mean to or not.

You even imply she is being dishonest and is only "posturing".

I very much doubt you will be able to observe these rules for very long.

But nice posture.


It's all right there, in black and white.

I'm not saying you're engaging in name calling. I'm merely saying you're focused on putting her down.

It's best to focus on ideas and arguments and avoid thoughts about other posters.

Quote:
Then you decided to slap me with, "You've already broken the rules!!!" which itself is a violation of the first rule.


I'm insulting you when I point out your insults? Is that right?

It’s really not hard. If you are stating your opinion, say it’s ur opinion. If you are stating something to be more of a fact, based on data etc. post a supporting link.

No blacks will buy that cap.  Look at the bill! It's all curved like normal people wear. The bill of the hat is supposed to be flat with a shiny goofy looking sticker in the middle of it.

No self respecting thug would be without his sticker!

Have you ever made a claim you could not or would not support with your source?

I'm cool with facts or opinions, labeled or not. I'm just happy to see discourse on a relevant topic of interest.

It seems to me our problem is not confusing fact with opinion, but rather one of focusing too much on each other.

Many of us don't seem to want to discuss the issues beyond signaling our virtue and tribal membership, but can spew paragraph after paragraph of invective against each other. That sort of naval gazing is frankly boring and hard to read. It has to reduce our traffic.
