    So, I don't know about you guys but my interpretation of a forum is where people with some sort of similar interest post topics, and then are permitted to DISCUSS said topic. I also understand that sometimes people post inappropriate things which then should be censored for the good of the community. However, I was not aware that only specific aspects of said similarity (in this case Ultima Online) are permitted to be discussed, nor was I aware that in posting here you are automatically treated like a 10 year old child. As a result, I am requesting that some sort of list be generated containing the topics which ARE and ARE NOT permitted to be discussed here. Seriously, I could have swore there was something in the history of our nation about freedom of speech...oh I guess that doesn't apply to typing.

    Player-run shards, bugs/exploits, unapproved third party programs (including any program that affects the UO datastream), selling for real world goods, power leveling, unapproved modifications to the client, anything that violates the games ToS, and/or links to such items.

    Add to that list: Anything that breaks the Stratics ROC and anything that is "off topic" for the forum it was posted in. There are probably a few additional ones that I am not thinking of at the moment - but the above should be a decent summary.

    Really - the Stratics ROC sums it up nicely.

    Oh there is.... And if you owned the forum you would be able to say whatever it was in your heart to say. The man can't stop you.

    However... The man can dictate what goes on his site, or who adds content to it. In this case in the reference of a poster and his posts.
     
  5. Add to that list anything the mods and rednecks consider to be unamerican.

    Add to that anything they happen to not sycophantically agree with.

    Sycophantically is an awesome word. I used infrangible the other day in conversation. It's like a grammar lesson every time you post, lol.

    It's a "let's all indirectly air our grievances with moderators" thread!
    I haven't seen one of these on here in a long time.

    Well the mods do need to be brought back down to earth with the rest of the community.

    Rant, Rave, Racist Remark, Personal Attack, rant and rave some more.
