OK, people... due to some of our recent "discussions" (and I use that term VERY loosely...) in the OFF TOPIC forum as of late... I'm going to lay down some ground rules that you will be expected to read and follow to continue to post here. These are very simple, almost NO BRAINER rules that everyone with a little common sense will easily abide by with no problems whatsoever. However, if you choose to ignore these very basic ground rules, you will be removed from the forum post-haste and with very little further warning.
1. Please keep *ANY* political, religious, and/or otherwise divisive topics off of this forum. This includes any opinion threads that may be considered offensive or distasteful to anyone who might happen upon the thread. Remember, this is a rock and roll forum for Y&T, not a personal soapbox. You are encouraged to post any and all OFF TOPIC threads that do not pertain to these subjects, as long as it's done in a tasteful manner.
2. *ANY* personal attacks... including ones that are "not so" slyly disguised as small jokes or jabs will result in your immediate dismissal from the forum. Treat others as you want to be treated, and there will be no problems. I'm finished with the referee job. My striped shirt is retiring today.
3. PLEASE report to me any threads that do not follow these guildelines. They will be handled quickly and effectively to restore peace and harmony to the forum. I'm not asking that everyone act like they're in a glass shell... I'm asking that you respect one another. Actually, I'm NOT asking. I'm requesting.
4. Have FUN and remember, this IS all for FUN. If you want to argue, there are other places on the web for that sort of discussion... but it's not HERE.
Thanks, and if you have any questions, please let me know and I'll address it the best I can.
Get back to ENJOYING the FORUM!
