NOTICE: P&R Forum Rules & Policies Enforcement
As of late we have had a resurgence in issues with insults, name calling and generally disrespectful behavior and it has been generally overlooked with just PM warnings and thread closings to end it.
First and foremost I want to make it clear that this is coming to a halt. From this point forward this forum will be handled in exactly the same manner that all other parts of SCF are handled.
Here is the statement concerning language as written in the SCF rules. Please take speical note of the parts that I have highlighted in green as they specifically apply to the P&R area:
Any foul or hostile language used in SCF will not be tolerated. This includes any derogatory statements and profanity. In accordance, using symbols to represent letters or to cover letters/words is not permitted either as the words are easy to decipher. This includes any attempt to work around our foul word filter or using abbreviations for foul words. Words caught by the foul word filter will appear on the boards blanked out by * and an infraction will still be handed out for their use.
Direct or indirect personal attacks are strictly not permitted. Insults and negative attitudes are not allowed. It is better to walk away from a possible confrontation and come back with constructive arguments after you have cooled off.
All members have the right to their own ideas, beliefs and faiths. Members have the right to express these on SCF with equal respect and consideration if they are not disruptive.
PM Warning - Issued for the first instance of any rule violation. (NOTE: 3 PM warnings for 3 different rules violations in the P&R forum will result in a ban from the P&R forum)
1 point - Thread hijacking (taking a thread off-topic with comments that have no relation to the subject discussed.)
3 points - Posting vulgar/inappropriate images and/or language
(Profanity as well as any graphic, pornographic or indecent picture is not permitted on the site.)
5 points – Causing major problem on the boards (this includes starting threads/making comments just to incite arguments)
5 points - PM abuse (spamming, abusive language, etc.)
If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me. My PM box is always open.

The only group atheism should fall into is "theisms".
As in polytheism, monotheism, atheism.
No matter how much some atheists try to make it a religion, it's not. That isn't to say atheists shouldn't be ready to be lumped in with their most zealous and noisy compatriots. It happens to monotheists and polytheists every day. It happens to theists, those practicing theism. Atheism is a theism."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help. If these phrases, or phrases like them, are part of your at-hand vocabulary, you are part of the problem. #STOPtheStigma

How the hell did that get there?
Something is wonky on your mobile site. I keep getting taken to wrong threads. I usually notice before I post though."He's gone crazy," "You have to snap out of it," "Take your meds," or, "Don't be such a downer" serve only to mock, belittle, and make light of mental illness. Such phrases only continue the negative stigma and keep those who suffer from getting help.
