I suggest we adopt the rules of the David Icke forum, they seem perfectly reasonable to me. Icke is a big believer in fighting for freedom and democracy (well, that's what he says).
Welcome to the David Icke forums.
You are free to discuss anything of interest, but please can we show respect for each other and the difficult job of the moderators who volunteer their time and hard work to ensure that the discussions are not hijacked and dominated by the few at the expense of the rest.
The David Icke forums have become a focus for lively debate, insights and information and I hope you enjoy your stay.
This is a place for open and free discussion on a wide range of topics, and we ask that you respect each other by not bullying or harassing other members of the forum.
This is not the place for personal attacks, or to deliberately stop the flow of conversation from taking place. Please; Do not Hijack threads with the same questions if a Moderator has already answered them; do not post irrelevant images or text in other people's topics for no reason other than disruption; do not make any personal insults or irrelevant one word answers. Do not spam “General” or "Today's News" with a bunch of new threads all in one session. Do not sign-up multiple user IDs for the purpose of trolling the forum or answering your own posts!
While David welcomes discussions on his research and doesn’t expect everyone will necessarily agree with every aspect of his work, anyone who joins this forum with the sole intention of flaming David Icke on his own forum will find their user account promptly suspended without warning.
Same applies to anybody who flames other users or deliberately disrupts other users who wish to seriously discuss aspects of David’s work. Forum disrupters who seek to do this will need to find themselves another forum to post on.
While it is perfectly fine to discuss aspects of David’s work you disagree with or do not understand posters who habitually criticize David’s work while offering little or nothing constructive to forum discussions will not be allowed to dominate this forum. Members who try this on will first be issued with a warning to let them know they are being asked to modify their troll-like behaviour. If this warning is ignored, the member will lose posting privileges without further ado.
We will not tolerate those with an axe to grind against David Icke, whilst using this forum to promote the work of other researchers in an aggressive manner. Again, such posters will be issued a warning to modify their approach, and if this is not respected their user account will be suspended.
Moderation, Complaints, and Disputes with regard to Moderation
The Administrators of the David Icke website reserve the right to moderate this forum in anyway they see fit in situations that might arise that are not specifically mentioned in the above forum posting guidelines.
If you have a complaint against a Moderator, or you feel you have been unfairly treated after having attempted to resolve an issue with the Moderator involved, you are free to bring the matter to the attention of the Forum Manager who in this instance will act as an arbitrator to assist both parties to find a resolution they can both agree on. However before taking this course of action, we expect that members will try and resolve these issues with the Moderator involved as a first step. Serious complaints may be forwarded on to the webmaster.
NOTE: When a dispute is brought to the attention of the Forum Manager and there is clear evidence that the forum guidelines have been breached, please don’t expect to find sympathy!
Discussing moderation and moderation decisions on the threads.
While we appreciate that everyone has an opinion, moderation issues may NOT be the topic of thread discussions, no matter how strongly you feel about what may or may not have happened to yourself or another poster. Very often other members are not aware of situations that have transpired if threads and posts have had to be deleted. The Moderation team is NOT at liberty to discuss such matters on the forum threads, and any such attempts to debate a moderator in this way will be swiftly dealt with and may result in infraction points if a poster continues to seek attention in this manner.
If you are genuinely concerned about ANY moderation decision, you may private message (PM) a Moderator for clarification, but you don’t have the right to demand private information that may have transpired between a Moderator and another member. We respect member privacy. If you have serious concerns and you feel you have not received a sufficient response from a Moderator, please feel free to PM the Forum Manager for further clarification.
Any member who feels they have the right to threaten, harass or otherwise intimidate Moderators (either on the forum threads or via PM) will find restrictions placed on their user accounts, or will be banned. The members of the moderation team on the David Icke forum are all volunteers who give of their time freely for the benefit of others. They did NOT sign on to put up with abuse. Please be respectful.
If you do not agree to comply with these guidelines, please do not apply for a forum account. Anybody repeatedly ignoring the guidelines or the advice of a Moderator will have restrictions placed on their account. http://www.davidicke.com/forum/faq.php
