Terms of Service

I had hoped to allow maximum freedom here and minimal rules. Unfortunately, a handful of individuals who seem incapable of acting in socially responsible ways made it necessary to have some rules, so here they are.

1) No illegal material, no child porn or bestiality, no illegal items for sale, no incitement of violence, no ad hominem attacks.

2) I intend for this to be a market place for ideas. In order for this to work ideas need to be open for criticism. Do not post here if you aren't willing to accept comments that attack your ideas. This is not the same as attacking the poster. If you delete a comment because it criticizes your idea, expect to have your post deleted as well. If you persist in this behavior, expect to be banned.

3) Attacking individuals with ad hominid attacks is not permitted, but criticizing bad behaviors is. Do not expect to be exempt from this because you happen to belong to some self-priviledged minority group.

4) No "FaceBook" style "Fact Checkers", if your fact check isn't backed by a published scientific document you will be banned.

5) If my pod is banned from yours, expect me to reciprocate in kind because I will.
