This site exists at the pleasure and discretion of the site operator to provide a small scale forum for relaxed discussion that isn't monetized or subject to the whims of the cloud. Oh, look, there are blogs and image galleries, too. That's neat.
Participation in this forum requires an account. Anyone may participate subject to the following rules:
As listed above, this forum is not open to anyone under the age of 18 outside of a very narrow exception.
These are the Rules with a capital R.
This is the most important rule. Sometimes it's a joke that didn't play right. Sometimes you are just missing context. Somedays it seems like everyone is in a bad mood. As Carl said, "It don't matter. None of this matters."
Don't be a dick. Don't post angry. Don't get worked up over things that don't matter. In line with Rule 1, just let it go.
This shouldn't need to be a rule, but some of you are monsters.
Don't disclose information that isn't yours to disclose. If someone does not want others to know their real name, location, sexual orientation, relationship status, natural hair color, political party, or dining preferences, then you have no business disclosing that for them. If someone blocks you, don't evade the block. Don't quote materials from non-public forums in public places. Disclosing the contents of PMs anywhere without the consent of all parties involved will result in a permanent ban.
Tacos rule, so this is a rule.
There are NSFW areas, but that's taking a broad view of what's NSFW. Basically, if HR would have a conniption over an image don't post it outside of NSFW areas. Porn, on the other hand, is strictly banned.
One of the core concepts of this site is to get away from all that. There may be specific areas for person-to-person trading, self promotion, or job listings. Outside of those limited areas, you must not have a pecuniary interest in what you post. Additionally, accepting compensation for posting on these forums is prohibited.
If you find yourself in a bad mood after visiting the forum, or your participation becomes a burden please consider leaving. It doesn't matter if the root cause is us or you. This forum is supposed to be a place to relax and have fun. It's not real life, it's just a dumb forum.
Venting every once in a while is one thing, but relying on a bunch of weirdos on the internet for you mental health is a terrible idea. Find a therapist. Go to the therapist. Therapy is good.
The number of items in a list should be a nice, round number.
