Enlightened Discussion Rules [Please Read Before Posting]

The entire point of having an "Enlightened Discussion" sub-forum is to have conversations that are free from trolling, flaming and general mayhem.

If that's something that you can't seem to handle, your posts will be removed and you will be banned.

1. No flaming
2. No trolling
3. No general mayhem
What about the threads started in the Enlightened Discussion sub-forum for the sole purpose of baiting negative attention towards the OP? Basically the opening post is a massive troll.

Fair point. If a thread is created as troll bait in ED than it should be deleted.
Or moved to the swamp.

Problem is, how do you decide? Usually it's the same person every time so that makes it easier. Would it be best to just ban that individual from starting ED threads?

That's a great idea too. They will probably be moved to the swamp.

The decision making will have to be case by case. There's no alternative. And yes, when the same user is doing it over and over, they will be banned from ED.
