    Cheryl came up with a condensed version ... maybe to encourage people to read them.

    7 Ways to Get Your Posts Edited or Deleted

    1. VIOLATE COPYRIGHTS. Copying and pasting an entire article, story or any other copyrighted materials here is a no-no because that's AGAINST COPYRIGHT LAW! It's okay to post small excerpts and/or your own comments and a link to the original work. If you find copyright laws too restrictive feel free to start a thread in the Current Events forum debating the merits of Copyright laws.

    2. THREATEN or HARASS OTHERS. You are free to add members to your ignore list if they annoy you. You are also free to report them if they have offended you. Threatening or harassing others is not allowed, even if you think they deserve it.

    3. BE CREEPY. Protect privacy, everyone's privacy. You wouldn't like it if you discovered that someone else had posted your name, your face, or a pic of your Mom here. That's creepy, don't be creepy.

    4. THWART LANGUAGE FILTERS. Using spaces between letters, strange characters or misspellings to get around the language filters to post filtered words is annoying. Your vocabulary is bigger than that. Curse words are not okay. We know you know what that means.

    5. SPAM. If we wanted Spam we'd buy it in a can.

    • Posting promotional content, affiliate links, or selling stuff is spam.
    • Posting links to your own website, blog, or other self promotional stuff in your signature is spam.
    6. CALL SOMEONE A "POOP HEAD". You may be correct about the composition of their head, but don't make disparaging remarks or derogatory comments about other members. Debate the issue; not the person. That means no name calling, okay?

    7. TROLLING. What is trolling? Making extreme rude, disparaging or inflammatory comments just to get an emotional response. If you see someone "trolling" please use the report link to alert the moderators/troll catchers.

    Do we get time to memorize them before we're tested?

    Can we just learn the key points (the bolded words), or must we know the whole phrase?

    Thanks in advance.:confused2:
     
  5. If you dont learn It, word for word. Just like the DOK, you get a warning letter!

    I still don't understand this one.

    We're all grown-ups here. We should be able to use the words we choose to use. Yes, our vocabulary is bigger than that. It's big enough to include the words being censored.

    The concept of a "bad word" is illogical to me. We can talk about anal penetration but we can't say assf*****g? Many of these censored words can be very meaningful and necessary in one's writing.

    The wording of this rule needs to be adjusted. Just simply say- "You can't use these words because we say you can't." It has nothing to do with varying your vocabulary. Many users here are anything but articulate. Their grammar is horrific and their spelling is even worse. The specific words they use is the least annoying part.

    Excessive use of profanity shows just how limited ones vocabulary really is.
