The Macrumors universe is rapidly expanding. This forum will probably get really busy real quick with all the political debates that go on here.

So this is for legit news, not rumors, that may be of intrerest to the Mac community, like political stuff, 4.7 Ghz Wintel, or Phillips and Rendevous or Sonica and AC3 Digital Sound?

ed- since this is under the Article Discussion heading then it would go to figure that you have an actual article.

yes... this is for non-rumor stuff.

Mac or Non-Mac related.

But, it should be based on a newsitem or current "event" to promote the discussion. Not just your personal rants...

But, many significant Mac-events are MacRumors.com relevant, and may be covered on the Macrumors.com main page.

Farscape cancellation, for example would go best here... not on the Macrumors main page. The phillips/rendezvous announcement was significant enough to be on the main macrumors page.

This is a work in progress... so we'll see how it goes.

Dangit! Forgot to read the rules post...

Sorry arn.... I'm a newbie, and I forgot to check at the top for rules threads, and because this was news I wanted to stay within the topic of the forums, and I wasn't sure... since it ties in with other older rumors, please move it at your discretion. -Dibbs

Looks fine... some else had posted a similar post under the MacApps forum - but what can you do... Kinda fits in both.

Arn, I know this is a liberal site and all, but surely you don't have to play along with postings like that of MacAztec advocating mass-murder and genocide? We really don't need to be reminded how low political debate can go, do we? We've got the daily news to tell us that...

i think letting any political propaganda on here is asking for trouble.

gentoo allows it and it starts nothing but fights because everyone seems to have a problem with the US
seems to be PC to bash USA on forums like these and i like coming to this one and dont need to be banned for defending my country!
