I don't think we need rules per se but having a set of guiding principals like what Bill wrote is really all that's necessary. If you have to ask yourself whether something is appropriate or not then you should always think of the guiding principals. Basically play nice and if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all (even if you hate whatever it is you want to badmouth.) If you have to criticize try to be as gentle as possible. The only place where this becomes unclear is if you have a bad experience with another member or business. Is it your ethical duty to warn others or is mud slinging bad form? I remember seeing horrible threads on vwvortex and turbobricks where two or more members would get into really heated arguments over money or property. It was always hard to figure out who was right/wrong since the arguments spiraled out of control with name calling and contradictions. Most people just side with their friends anyways. Hopefully one day the forum can have feedback ratings for users.
Wow :| I'm still really confused, is it that racist is a bad word here and we can't say it? Or was it that the kid was black or what?
I'm not trying to stand up to you or anything, i'd just like to know stuff so i don't get in trouble in the fututre. Because the "guidelines" that were in that link cover virtually nothing
Please, let's try to avoid controversy here and stick to Roadster talk.
