      GUIDELINES for this forum are intended to promote and maintain it
      as a conduit for exploring LIBERTARIANISM

      That purpose can become swamped by posting OFF-topic messages.

      Thus, moderation of messages may be imposed on some posters
      in order to help maintain the conceptual focus of this forum.

      That means 'take it outside' (of this forum) when you want to 'flame'
      (personal attack, ad hominem) another poster in this forum.

      see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LibertarianFlame

      Obviously, untrue attributions or flagrantly explicit distortions
      regarding another poster's advocacy in this forum (aka: slander)
      are also forms of ad hominem; thus off-topic here.

      A way to subvert the purpose of this forum is via disingenuousness & 'non sequitur'

      Main Entry: non se�qui�tur
      Pronunciation: 'n�n-'se-kw&-t&r also -"tur
      Function: noun
      Etymology: Latin, it does not follow
      1 : an inference that does not follow from the premises; specifically : a fallacy resulting from a simple conversion of a universal affirmative proposition or from the transposition of a condition and its consequent
      2 : a statement (as a response) that does not follow logically from anything previously said

        That purpose can become swamped by one or more, of the over 700 who are registered to post, 'flooding' the forum with multiple daily 'cut&paste' imports of the entire text of formal articles published elsewhere.

        Please use the forum to publish YOUR on-topic composition; in which can be included appropriate selected EXCERPTS with reference link (URL) to 'more' content.


        The forum's purpose can also become swamped by posting OFF-topic messages.

        Thus, moderation of messages may be imposed on some posters
        in order to help maintain the conceptual focus of this forum.

        That means 'take it outside' (of this forum) when you want to 'flame'
        (personal attack, ad hominem) someone in this forum.

        That includes juvenile gossip and witch hunts about WHO iz, or iz not,
        a libertarian.
