Forum rules

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Please spend some time browsing the topics here before replying or starting your own, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.

The official language here is English and all communications should be in English please. That's not because we don't respect other languages, but because it's the only language we all understand!

  1. You can disagree with a post but do not criticise people
  2. Please avoid - name-calling, ad hominem attacks, responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content, knee-jerk contradiction.
  3. Instead provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
  4. Please post meaningful, relevant and new - something that hasn’t already been said in the thread
  5. Please flag any bad behaviour to the moderator; actions would be taken if enough flags accrued
  6. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
