    Application Clarification added to Rule 10

    The Mods wish to announce that they have added an application clarification to Rule 10 as follows:

    Note: Generally speaking, the mods do not substitute their judgment for that of the OP as to whether a rule has been violated and will initially defer to the OP. However, if the mods feel that the tpf function is being abused in a thread or series of threads (i.e. personal hatred, for example), the mods reserve the right to strip the tpf function from the thread. Moreover, if the mods feel that the thread is in a wrong sub-forum and should be moved to a sub-forum that is non-tpf, the mods reserve the right to do so.

    There has been some discussion and confusion relative to this on the open forum lately. The Mods wish to remind the members of the above post and direct your attention to Rule 10.

    Rule 10 has been modified to reflect policy. It now reads (the addition is in red):

    10. Threads marked tPF allow the thread creator to thread ban members for what they feel are violations of any of the above listed forum rules, and only for those reasons. It will still be moderated as any other part of the forum based on the above listed forum rules, so tPF will be removed if the opening post violates any of those rules. The theme is still to try to develop a place for serious discussion. By serious discussion we mean making meaningful contributions to the topic at hand free of flamebait trolling, off-topic distractions and personal attacks. Here is How to create a tPF.Note: Generally speaking, the Mods do not substitute their judgment for that of the OP as to whether a rule has been violated and will initially defer to the OP. However, if the Mods feel that the tPF function is being abused in a thread or series of threads (i.e. personal hatred, for example), the Mods reserve the right to strip the tPF function from the thread. Moreover, if the Mods feel that the thread is in a wrong sub-forum and should be moved to a sub-forum that is non-tPF, the Mods reserve the right to do so. If the OP bans someone or requests a ban of someone but quotes, mentions or heckles them (directly or indirectly) after the requested ban, the mods will consider stripping the "tpf" from the thread and reinstating all previously tpf banned members. Also, threads moved to a non-tpf sub-forum lose their tpf status. For example: threads posted as 'latest happenings' that are deemed to be rants, will lose their tpf status when moved to rants.
