View Full Version : Derogatory Terms

The definition of a derogatory term is one that insults, belittles or treats a group or individual with contempt. This applies to terms like "anti-Mormon" and "Circuit Mormon".

Effective immediately, members who use derogatory terms will be warned once, and the second time they will be banned indefinitely without warning. A third infraction will result in a long term account suspension.

As I have said many times on this board (and in PM's), do not call other members names--any names--for any reason. This includes "liar," etc.

Clarification: Historical persons are not members of this board (obviously), and if you can prove through citations from primary sources that he or she lied, stating this person "lied" is permissible. However, this should be done in a scholarly way--no mocking, contempt, etc. If you cannot do this, than do not post.

As you know, the Walter Martin website takes the position that Mormon theology is not Christian theology. Use of the term "LDS Christian" is inaccurate and misleading, and as such is not acceptable on this board.

One more thing, do not post in a thread to mock someone else--this is called "baiting," which is against the rules. You will be warned once and then your account will be suspended--possibly indefinitely. If you have to resort to making fun of people and their ideas, you have nothing valuable to contribute here.

One more thing: Do NOT address other board members as "Mormon" or by any other term that can be construed as derogatory. Refer to other members by their USERNAME only. This warning should be quite clear and anyone who does not listen to it will have their account suspended without warning.

Please take a minute and review the board rules.
