The reminders: stay polite and stay on topic. Blithe accusatory one-liners that don't further the conversation will be deleted. At least aspire to a high level of discourse, meaning no snark or snideness. Or sarcasm. Much as I love sarcasm, it has no place in forensics.

The hint: IF YOUR POST IS DELETED, D O * N * O * T * REPOST THE SAME THING. Final warning. Next step is a banning.

If anyone doesn't understand, feel free to either email/message me privately OR post the question on the board itself. I will do my best to explain better.

I *love* debate. I think it's a GOOD thing to examine all sides of any issue. ALL opinions are welcome. Those opinions must be expressed in a civil manner.

I see post with N-bombs that are not deleted, that's one of the most offensive words in the English Language(to some of us anyway)im just saying.

There is a difference between calling a person a nigger, which is indeed highly offensive, and posts like this which are discussing the word itself, including saying it *is* offensive and people should not have to tolerate such prejudice.

The former is unacceptable name calling. The latter is reasonable discussion.
