In honor of JForum Day 2014, we've opened a new forum called the Rattlesnake Pit. As you know, we don't allow conversations to get too meaningful or controversial in Meaningless Drivel. This new forum allows meaningful, political or otherwise controversial topics as long as they follow our rule of "be nice." Being CodeRanch, the moderators have the right to be trigger happy and delete posts without warning. That shouldn't be a big problem because you need to earn 5 cows before you can post in here. Regardless, everyone - including non-members - can read these threads.
And like real bartenders can cut you off from the drinks once you overdo it, moderators here can temporarily (or permanently) prevent you from posting in this forum. Or even take away some cows.
So think before clicking "submit" and let us all show how a controversial forum on the internet can be friendly. We moderators have been testing it out a bit if you want to read how we disagree politely and respectfully.
