Attacks on family members will not be tolerated and will be subject to action by an Admin/Mod. Action taken could range from a warning to banning and will be at Admin/Mod discretion. The only exception to this is IF a member brings his/her family member(s) into the conversation first.

Does the phrase "did your parents have any children that lived?' count as an attack on a family member? I view it as an attack on the poster, not the family, but I wanted clarification. Thanks.

Out here in the middle.
You must be from that other board where the rules were so half-assedly applied that people spent half their time asking moderators if it was "okay" to do this or that. The other half of the time was spent snitching on other posters for possibly breaking some obscure rule.

the last board I was on was so heavily moderated, they banned you if you posted a thread in the wrong section too often. I kid you not.

Good question. I agree it was not an attack on family.

Who said it, btw?

#AttackWhines: Posters at USMB are hating on other posters who are hating on the first posters, with hate speech. I hope you change that.

No. If people are reduced to saying that, they've lost the argument, eh?

Using TM's idea of right and wrong then calling someone a bastard is attacking their mother as a slut.

Calling someone a bitch is calling their parents dogs.

So if you asked someone when they started beating their wife again is that insulting their family?
