ATS Admin and Owners are very, very strict when it comes to mentioning personal use of drugs, or their legalization. Better to avoid the subject
They don't tolerate direct threats or wishing for the deaths of any public figure.
They don't tolerate personal attacks against fellow ATSers. Disagree all you want, but don't call them names or tell them to get lost.
Racism is not tolerated
in any shape or form, and this goes for
as well. Even if you believe Hitler was an extremely talented leader
that misplaced his skills and became a monster, you can't talk about it. The same with racial stereotypes and such. No matter how obvious they are,
or how well-meaning your post is, it will invariably lead down the wrong path, so they just choose to nip them right up front. Don't even bother.
Sex is another tricky one. It is more open than drugs and racism, but it makes some of the members and staff uncomfortable, so tread lightly.
Sometimes threads about prostitution, or rape in other countries, or child-abuse can be successful, but normally they go a little while and then end
Hitler, drugs, racism, and sex should be handled with extreme kiddy-care.
