Updated lounge guidelines - please read.

Post by Ben » Mon Jun 20, 2016 12:37 am

Last week an additional paragraph was inserted into the lounge guidelines.

Certain topics and material are not fit for posting even here in the lounge, this include content that is:

- sexualised - for the purpose of titillation
- violent
- conspiracy theories
Fistly, DW is a "family friendly" environment. Secondly, the Lounge is not a "free for all".

There are a number of current members and non-members who are under the age of eighteen. Hence, material that contains violence or is of a sexual nature will be reviewed and if deemed inappropriate will the removed from view. Repeat offenders will receive disciplinary action.

Discussion of conspiracy theory topics such as whether the earth is flat and that NASA and other "secret societies" have hidden the truth from people regarding the nature of the universe are not fit even for here. In the past discussion of conspiracy theories has descended into the propagation of delusional ideas and wrong speech. Furthermore, they are a drain on limited moderation resources. If members feel a burning desire to indulge in discussing conspiracy theories - please do so elsewhere.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
