    Some specific rules for this subforum:

    1. Back your arguments up.

    1a. If you're being given evidence/citations, you are obligated to provide counter sources if you are going to continue to disagree.

    1b. Failure to follow 1a will piss me off.

    2. Do not derail the thread into a side argument. Your post should relate to the title.

    3. If you're told to move on, change tactic, or given a warning infraction there won't be second warnings. Fucking around in Politics is by far the easiest way to get permanently banned from the site.

    4. Don't lecture the site as a whole. e.g. "I can't believe there are people who would say they aren't feminists." You know who you are. Paint with a broad brush and you're liable to end up dumpstered.

    Cheers.
