    I'm not sure a lot of folks could discuss abortion under Zone 2 rules. Not enough name calling allowed. I'm a witch and a satanist, ya know--where'd I put that fetus I was gonna sacrifice?

    That's why I was suggesting to give the CREATOR of a thread the choice of
    designating do they want clean rules (ie CDZ type) or do they want to open up to free speech
    (thread bashing and head smashing as long as it is on topic).

    I was advised it causes moderation issues to try to let the author set the rules of the thread
    (unless the entire section is under the same standard as with CDZ).

    What if the "Abortion Politics and Policies" is SET UP as CDZ type clean debate/no namecalling-insults.
    But IF the AUTHOR designates that this thread WILL BE OPEN TO FREE SPEECH
    then posts won't get thrown off there, because the author specifically waived the rules that normally apply.

    Is that possible? To require the AUTHORS to post if they WANT the free speech bashing
    to go on there. But otherwise, the DEFAULT rule is CLEAN.

    why would you do that? so religious zealots can call people representing the majority of thought in this country (by far) murderers? it would be like the israel/pal section which is nothing more than anti-semite/terrorist supporters spreading propaganda.

    Hi jillian and Coyote
    so in order to go with the given zones already designated
    1. if a thread on abortion is started in that section, and it's
    under CDZ rules, then any of that religious flaming would get deleted
    and the posters would stick to content
    2. if someone DOES start an abortion thread to flame and troll
    then it gets moved to the FZ, right? And doesn't qualify as
    content threads being discussed civilly in the Abortion politics section, right?

    So it still allows separation of these two types of threads.
    But the civil ones stay in the designated section,
    while the flaming/trolling ones get moved. Right?
    is that how this could work?
