If a post in a topic is posted for the purpose of derailing the topic or discussing a pet topic not related to the topic at hand, I will be deleting it.
Bear that in mind before you spend precious time posting such posts.
There are plenty of topics out there and you have the ability to create new ones, so your post will always have a home, unless it breaks the rules.
I will only be doing this with members who have a pattern of derailing or spamming topics.
This will not affect most members, just a few who have a habit of steering many topics they post in toward their pet doctrines.April 8, 2016 at 9:36 am #811551Richard of DecaturParticipant

I fully support your rules and am glad they are there for the sake of those of us who get tired of someone coming out with the same old garbage.April 8, 2016 at 9:44 am #811553

I am probably guilty of that as I believe the everything is related.
There is a couple of methods to derail a topic that you did not mention.
1) Ad Hominem fallacy
2) Red Herring fallacy
What you mention may or may not fall in the secound one depending on how relevant it is.April 12, 2016 at 2:19 pm #811665
Good point kerwin. I may mention them in the rules.
