It's not that hard to understand. Here are the rules: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10341.TomsTXCHL wrote:Good grief, I am only trying to understand. And you've linked to neither the rules nor the "guidelines set for discussing OC". How hard do you have to make this..
I don't know if it is possible to be 100% perfect, but it IS possible to make an honest effort. If I am in doubt, I check the rules. I make an honest effort. I occasionally slip up, and I occasionally get a reminder from a moderator.......mostly because I wasn't thinking about my word choices when I typed and hit submit.
Another useful tool: if you find that another member's posts routinely annoy you, you can always choose to "ignore" a user's posts by managing your "friends and foes" lists in your user control panel. Add a user to your "foes" list, and their posts magically disappear from the threads you are reading. I don't have anyone currently listed there, but I have used that tool before, and it does add to one's peace of mind.
