members of this site promote positive mutual respect among our own
registered membership and the world at large. We will not, for example,
permit one person to attempt to humiliate another person, whether
the attempt is made in our forum, our blogs, or in other writings
on our site. There is no room here for humiliation. Nor is there
room here for persecution, flame-wars, individual attacks, baiting,
harassment, or other negative behavior.
we want, and what we encourage, is the meaningful interchange of
ideas and the fostering of virtual, on-line friendships and understanding.
This means that no one bashes anyone here. All of us are people
first. We expect members to evaluate each person by her behavior,
not by the tags, including those of "theist" or "non-theist,"
that are hung upon her.
if we treat each other with respect while we are interacting with
each other on this site, it will begin to rub off on the world at
large, making that realm a better place for us all to live.
