The Mud Pit Is Not For Flame-Fests!
If you value unrestricted political debate, and the knowledge that can be learned from it, the insults and attacks in the Mud Pit must stop.
We understand that passionate debate about political ideals will come close to the line of decorum, however, this is AboveTopSecret.com and the
management of this site aspires to a higher standard of conduct than other online discussion boards. If you are unable to temper your rhetoric to
avoid personal attacks and direct personal insults, you will not be welcome here.
From the date of this post forward, the tone and style of the exchanges in this forum will be more closely watched. It's future depends on you. With
the election coming close, it would be a shame to have to close down this forum because a small percentage of participants cannot discuss these topics
The old thread of a similar subject has run it's course and has been trashed. There is no point in further discussion. This forum, while allowed
to be generally more intense than other ATS forums, will no longer tolerate direct insults targeted at fellow members.
