I've got no problem with loose conversations and shit, but you coming here and telling me that it's okay for a kid like HEELKris to curse 30 people in his last 30 responses.. How does it matter that he is doing it in Rants? Last time I checked it doesn't make you look like a nazi banning such a person.
Hell, maybe that's how the cool people such as yourself have fun here.
After all, I'm just another new guy.
Rants basic rules
The Rants forum was designed for users who need to vent at anything he or she wants to vent at or towards. You are allowed to make a "rant" about a poster or staff member but it can still be moderated by an administrator. Do be careful. Blatant abusing of staff will not be allowed. "Ranting" and "abusing" are two totally different situations. It is up to you to know when to draw the line. Some staff will tolerate it, some will not. Certain amount of respect should be shown to all staff members. If the post is completely useless and an administrator feels it is no good, he can lock the thread. Even though it is not heavily moderated compared to other sections, it is mildly moderated, and thus you should not make racial comments. Remember, being a racist can result in a ban. If you make a joke and other members do not take offense towards the joke, that is acceptable, but just remember not everyone is expected to know when you "joke." So:
You can insult any member you want
You should not bring up race
You should not insult someone's family member if he or she is not a registered user (insulting someone you don't know is a bad idea -- he or she could be sick, dying, or even dead)
You may insult nationality (to a certain degree -- i.e. don't bring up 9/11 to insult the U.S., etc.)
You may not insult sexuality
You may insult religion (to a certain degree -- i.e. don't stereotype about a religion such as Muslims)
You may not tell someone to go "kill themselves".
All debates or threads which could end up "heated" should be placed in Rants
Admin rights (Rants forum)
As previously stated, just because the Rants forum is not heavily modded that does not mean it is a free-for-all. Most content is allowed (see above) but not all content is accepted. If an admin feels like a topic should be locked, then the admin will lock that topic. Super moderators have the ability to edit all forums, including Rants, but administrators are the final overseers of the Rants forum (and all other forums). Any pointless threads made in Rants will be removed.

Users can be removed from threads for being continuous disruptions. Likewise a user can be removed from a forum for being a continuous disruption in that forum.
You can also have your access to rants removed as well. It may be the least moderated forum on the board, but if you are seen as a huge annoyance then you will be removed.
Your thread access will be restored by the discretion of a Super Mod or Admin. Your forum access will be restored by the discretion of an Admin.
If you can't comprehend that, then this isn't the place for you.
