    New Rule amendments for Political & Religious Discussions.

    Reasons for the rules

    Our goals are to encourage fair and constructive discussions that deal with facts and opinions without flaming, name-calling, or personal insults. That's why you may dispute what other users post but not attack them personally for their opinions or statements.

    "Intelligent discussions, debate's, differing opinions and sharing of informative materials is welcomed. To make the platform lively, friendly and entertaining; personal attacks on others through racism, trolling, offensive name calling will not be tolerated".


    By using this website, you acknowledge your acceptance and understanding of these rules. These rules apply to all communications made on this site. Noncompliance with these rules will mean posts are edited or deleted, accounts actioned with warnings, infractions or bans.

    1) Keep political & religious discussions civil. Attack ideas, do not attack the people who hold them. in other words, address the context of the post, not the poster.

    2) Personal attacks (like name-calling) on other members, people, countries, or political institutions are not allowed. While we do allow political figures to be referred to by fairly common, polite nicknames, the type of insulting name calling that goes in many other online political discussions is not welcome here. Do not insult, belittle, mock, goad, personally attack, threaten, harass, or use derogatory nicknames in reference to other members or groups of members.

    3) Do not post graphic or sexually explicit images or text. Do not use profanity or foul language (this includes using punctuations to bypass the profanity filter).

    4) Those who disagree with you are not idiots, moron, terrorists, anti-Indian, retards, traitor, etc. While you may not be willing to believe it, they might be right and you might be wrong. Do not make another member's experience on this site miserable. This includes, making false accusations or persistently attacking them in the open forums.

    5) Don't expect to convince a political or religious opponent by citing opinion pieces or biased "factual" pieces from sources generally considered be strongly aligned with one political/religious group or another.

    6) This forum is not an appropriate place for blatant political campaigning.

    7) Take a look at your message before you post it. It if reads like children taunting each other on the playground, please revise it as you will only make a fool of yourself (and perhaps get into rules violation trouble) if you post it.

    8) If you are flamed, do not respond in-kind. Alert moderator to the situation by utilizing the report button. Do not report another member out of spite.

    9) Flaming/Trolling: “Flamebaiting” is making statements intended to cause an angry or emotional response/flame from the person. Another form of baiting is known as “derailing” or “thread-jacking”. This is deliberate act of making statements with an aim of diverting the topic of a thread significantly from its main focus. These negative forms of baiting constitute a rules violation that can potentially lead to warning/infractions or bans.

    10) Hate Messages - Hate Messages delivered via threads, posts, signatures, or PM's are forbidden at sbforums. The Moderator Team defines a hate message as any willful wording intended to ridicule, debase, degrade, intimidate, or incite violence and/or prejudicial actions against a group of people based on their race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion. Determined violations of this rule will be subject to incur an immediate infraction or ban. Posting links/images/words to any website deemed by the Moderator Team to contain hate messages will also constitute a violation.
