4. RULES OF CONDUCT
As part of the Patheos community, you will be participating in a new dialogue about some of the most important topics in the world. And that new dialogue is:
A. Respectful and Elevated. Here we seek to better understand each other. That requires us to engage courteously and respectfully, even when we are engaging with someone with whom we fundamentally disagree.
Louis Midgley: 0 / 1
Consistently uses disrespectful and insulting language and personal attacks. Often these personal attacks are made explicit, as in "I intended to insult XXX".
B. Open, yet Safe. Anyone who desires to be part of the conversation can engage, but [b][i]abuse will not be tolerated. Remember though: when you truly engage with someone from another faith, you often find that his or her world-view and yours are in conflict.[/i][/b]

Verbally abuses others with derogatory terms such as "stupid", "poor", "mindless", "snot blowing", "lame", "dogmatic athiest", "dumb freshman", regardless of how civil those other users are in offering their points of view.
