FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a “troll” by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldn’t be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg “It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill,” is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points – Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

  • Obama Derangement Syndrome

    Every day on this forum you see Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) on display. It's hilarious.

    Here's an extremely moderate, even slightly right-of-center Democrat who has been surprisingly successful despite unprecedented obstruction, being portrayed as a radical.

    During the worst economic crisis since 1929, he chose not to nationalize the banks, and spent a third of the stimulus package on tax cuts. He saved the auto industry and got passed a health insurance plan devised by the far-right Heritage Foundation, embraced by the Republicans in the 1990s, and that was passed by a Republican governor.

    He's been even more zealous at national security than Bush, getting the man (bin Laden) that Bush apparently forgot about.

    And yet in far-right la la land, he can do nothing right--he's a Communist, Socialist, Kenyan-born radical who will undermine the nation because he isn't really "one of us."

    I think his worse "crime" was simply beating the best the Republicans had to offer. Twice. Bill Clinton did the same thing, and the GOP was in a lather then, too. Remember the speculation on the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal about the Clintons murdering Vincent Foster?

    Same thing.

    Every week it's something new, something hilarious.

    Here's Fox "News'" Greta Van Susteren asserting that a photo of Obama, who was caught in a photo using a little body English to coax a put into the hole (has any of us ever done such an outrageous thing?) was "staged."
    "What was he thinking? You know photographers don't have an open door to take pictures of the president any time they want," Van Susteren asked. "It's all staged and choreographed with secret service standing by. So this was not spontaneous."
    Oh yes, we all "know" this, don't we, Greta? Amazing what we "know." I mean, it wasn't even a flattering picture.



    This was "staged"? Really? I ask you, who is more bizarre. People on Fox "News"? Or the people who watch it? Do they ever say to themselves, Jesus Christ, these people are obsessed!

    Guess not.

    This week we also learned that while the House has enough votes to impeach him, it wouldn't get past the Senate, so gosh, why bother?
    “You tie into a question I get a lot: 'If everybody’s so unhappy with what the president’s done, why don’t you impeach him?’” Farenthold said. “I’ll give you a real frank answer about that: If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it. But it would go to the Senate, and he wouldn’t be convicted.”
    Two thoughts came to my mind. First, impeach him on...what? Starting a war based on lies? No, that wasn't him, that was the guy before him. Ignoring intelligence findings that "bin Laden was determined to strike within the United States?" Nope. Other guy again. In fact, the other guy apparently forgot about bin Laden. Obama ordered the CIA to redouble their efforts to find him. And they did. And he's dead. No thanks to the other guy.

    The other thought that ran through my mind was that Obama was elected by a majority of the voters, and then reelected in an electoral landslide just 10 months ago. I wonder how the general public would view an attempt to impeach him now, based on, um, based on...uh, gosh, I guess it would be based entirely on ODS! This only sounds reasonable to other ODS sufferers.

    This is one of the many problems with ODS. To normal people those who suffer from it just end up sounding nuts.

    And now, for a demonstration, all you ODS sufferers...take it away!

        I thought Obama was my lord and master? Or is that everyone who defends the (pretty successful in my opinion) President?

        Way to go JPN. We need more threads like this one. If anything, Obama has let the left down by governing to the right of center. You'd think GOPers would be pleased!!

          Personally I think his greatest crime was pissing on the Constitution and taking away our civil liberties, but whatever.

          Nice ass.

            Re: Obama Derangement Syndrome

            Oh, yeah, Obama has been marvelous. If, that is, you can ignore:

            - His ongoing human rights crimes involving indefinite detention without trial. Something he was vehemently against as a candidate, and then supported and expanded as President. A giant stain on our nation, initiated by Bush and enthusiastically continued by Obama.
            - The massive spying on Americans in blatant violation of the Constitution.

            Of course, his loyal lemmings both domestic and Canadian are more than happy to ignore or excuse those acts. We've even been told that Obama lies to us for our own good.

            Bullshit.

            Like every President, Obama has done both good and bad. He has had some successes and some dismal failures. And while one side might exhibit "Obama Derangement Syndrome", the other side exhibits "Obama Worship Syndrome", unable to admit even the slightest error or flaw in Obama's actions.

            Both are equally dangerous to our nation.

              Ruling as an arbitrary floundering autocrat doesn't make one "right of center".
              The foxies are amusing but so are the crowds clapping and cheering for the greta-O when he blows his nose.

                I guess I'm not sure what great things he has accomplished. Inmy opinion, he's just there. He hasn't done anything that I can see. He just lets thing happen around him while he's on the golf course.

                  Re: Obama Derangement Syndrome

                  The only thing I can see that Obama has succeeded in is turning the country away from the values that made it great, self reliance for instance, into a nation that expect the government to take care of them. That, I think, is something that is a great and long lasting detriment, and will not properly equip our children for the ever fiercer international competition economically. In fact, it's going to battle with damp powder.

                  I also see international relations with allies at an all time low, and respect from international peers also at an all time low. You can see it with Putin's action in the Snowden case. 'Up Yours Obama' and 'Up Yours USA'.

                  These are Obama's accomplishments, and I can easily see history recording him and his administration on par with Carter's.

                    This week we also learned that while the House has enough votes to impeach him, it wouldn't get past the Senate, so gosh, why bother?


                    Two thoughts came to my mind. First, impeach him on...what? Starting a war based on lies? No, that wasn't him, that was the guy before him. Ignoring intelligence findings that "bin Laden was determined to strike within the United States?" Nope. Other guy again. In fact, the other guy apparently forgot about bin Laden. Obama ordered the CIA to redouble their efforts to find him. And they did. And he's dead. No thanks to the other guy.

                    The other thought that ran through my mind was that Obama was elected by a majority of the voters, and then reelected in an electoral landslide just 10 months ago. I wonder how the general public would view an attempt to impeach him now, based on, um, based on...uh, gosh, I guess it would be based entirely on ODS! This only sounds reasonable to other ODS sufferers.

                    This is one of the many problems with ODS. To normal people those who suffer from it just end up sounding nuts.

                    And now, for a demonstration, all you ODS sufferers...take it away!
                    I'm not exactly sure I know the symptoms of Obama Derangement Syndrome.

                    Would it be someone who is so deranged in their fawning over the lord high Obama that they believe him to be "extremely moderate" and "slightly right-of-center?" Or someone who absolutely ignores his unconstitutional uses of federal departments to harass his opponents and detractors? Maybe it's someone who is apparently so ignorant of his shortcomings that he proclaims the Dalai Obama as "surprisingly successful."

                    So, if you could define your terms despite your obviouis hatred of anyone who really IS "slightly right of center," that would be great... or can an ODS sufferer define his own malady? I'm sorry if I ask too much.

                      At this point it's my impression that any Obama supporter can claim any Obama detractor to be afflicted with Obama derangement syndrome (or worse yet, a racist) because the detractor disagrees with some action or some policy of Obama's. Of course the Biased Lame Stream Media would only reenforce this as the correct thing to do.

                      So my conclusion is that declaring someone or some opinion as being afflicted with Obama Derangement Syndrome is meaningless, except to the Obama supporter. In reading JPN's opening post, you can see this is clearly true.

                        I'm just not satisfied with Obama for a number of reasons: He has not been a good steward of taxpayer's money (continued deficits), he has promised the impossible on health care (promise, deny, blame, repeat...), he is an advocate of gun control legislation ..... to name a few

                        I'm not sure if it qualifies me for ODS, but maybe I will be eligible for disability now or some other government subsidy ...

                          Here's an extremely moderate, even slightly right-of-center Democrat who has been surprisingly successful despite unprecedented obstruction, being portrayed as a radical.

                          During the worst economic crisis since 1929, he chose not to nationalize the banks, and spent a third of the stimulus package on tax cuts. He saved the auto industry and got passed a health insurance plan devised by the far-right Heritage Foundation, embraced by the Republicans in the 1990s, and that was passed by a Republican governor.

                          He's been even more zealous at national security than Bush, getting the man (bin Laden) that Bush apparently forgot about.

                          And yet in far-right la la land, he can do nothing right--he's a Communist, Socialist, Kenyan-born radical who will undermine the nation because he isn't really "one of us."

                          I think his worse "crime" was simply beating the best the Republicans had to offer. Twice. Bill Clinton did the same thing, and the GOP was in a lather then, too. Remember the speculation on the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal about the Clintons murdering Vincent Foster?

                          Same thing.

                          Every week it's something new, something hilarious.

                          Here's Fox "News'" Greta Van Susteren asserting that a photo of Obama, who was caught in a photo using a little body English to coax a put into the hole (has any of us ever done such an outrageous thing?) was "staged."


                          Oh yes, we all "know" this, don't we, Greta? Amazing what we "know." I mean, it wasn't even a flattering picture.



                          This was "staged"? Really? I ask you, who is more bizarre. People on Fox "News"? Or the people who watch it? Do they ever say to themselves, Jesus Christ, these people are obsessed!

                              Heh, you think any of this is bad? You should have seen what was posted here about Bush and Cheney before Obama got elected. Oh yeah; you and Danny were here during the Bush years, and you two were some of the main culprits in posting idiotic partisan crap back then. I guess some things never change.
