All existing posting guidelines apply. But for the sake of simplicity and ease of understanding, I am proposing that only two general guidelines be actively enforced:

1. No personal attacks on members of AI.
2. No intentional disruption of the forum (spamming images, posting nonsense after every post, etc).

That is the shortest possible list. Now this is easy to remember, and also means that other things which had been debated as forbidden in the past are now tolerated, such as

1. Profanity is allowed. Profanity for the sole purpose of profanity falls under rule 2 above (e.g., a whole post of nothing but profanity).

2. Attacks against anyone NOT a member of AI, including AI itself, are allowed. However, posting or discussion of forum moderation, except in threads set up for that purpose, will be unceremoniously removed.

3. Provocative titles or topics are fine. Trivial or frivolous threads however, fall under rule 2.

The decision as to whether a post violates rule 1 or 2 shall be the decision of the moderator. Appeals will be ignored unless a clerical or identification error has occurred (e.g. banning wrong account).

When you identify a post as violating rule 1 or 2, click the Report Post button. The post will be reviewed and action may or may not be taken depending on the assessment of the moderator.

The threads will be periodically reviewed for violations of rules 1 or 2.
