[Read before posting!] Rules for the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum

Threads on the subject of politics, religion, and social issues can produce strong disagreements among forum members. We provide users with the privilege of expressing almost any opinion in the forums (exceptions include hate speech). However, opinions must be expressed in an appropriate manner.

Posts in this forum are subject to:If you have not yet read these rules, do so before posting.

Everyone can read the posts in the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum. You must have made at least 100 forum posts elsewhere before you can post or start threads in this forum.

Reasons for the rules

Our goals are to encourage fair and constructive discussions that deal with facts and opinions without flaming, name-calling, or personal insults. That's why you may dispute what other users post but not attack them personally for their opinions or statements.

The Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum is provided for forum members who have interests in Apple and also in social issues. The 100-post minimum (as shown in your user profile) helps keep out users who have no other business being at MacRumors and simply want to stir up other users. It also keeps out well-meaning members who are simply new to MacRumors; we accept this tradeoff and welcome these members once they qualify.

Moderation

The moderators never take sides in discussions of social issues when enforcing the rules. They would rather not interfere with debates or discussions at all. If you and others follow the rules, they won't have to. If you think another user's post is not within the rules, report it, ignore it, and/or respond without breaking the rules. Let the moderators deal with the user in question while you preserve your forum privileges.

Questions

If you have questions about any forum rule, you are welcome to use the Contact form to ask us about it privately or to post in a Site and Forum Feedback thread to ask general questions about rules and policies. For questions or comments specific to the Rules for Appropriate Debate, you can post in the announcement thread. Use the Contact form if you want to talk to us about a specific instance of moderation or member discipline.
