It should go without saying, but since we're attempting to foster a community on the Gaming Nerds Я Us site, we insist on a few basic rules if you wish to participate. In other words, whatever you think your 'rights' are concerning whatever you want to say simply do not apply. This is not a government, much less your government - it's a forum. One whose maintenance is paid for with our own money.

For one thing, keep your notions about politics and religion to yourself. If you need to go on about these things, save it for your Facebook feed. Or your weird buddies on Gab, or whatever. Nobody wants to hear it, because it's everywhere else.

Secondly, treat others with respect. If you don't like what someone's saying, attack their ideas, not their person. In other words, if all you can do when disagreeing with someone is mock their forum avatar, maybe the problem is with you and not them.

Third, we don't care about profanity in and of itself, as we're all ostensibly adults here. However, we draw the line at disparaging terms, because Gaming Nerds Я Us does not discriminate. Bigotry in any form will not be tolerated, full stop.

So what will we do to enforce such policies? Whatever we darn well feel like, ranging from replacing your offensive words with something openly mocking you, to outright deleting your posts and account. In other words, play nice with us when you're in our house, or you'll be shown the door. We don't care wich you choose, but you don't get to have it both ways, sorry.
