    Posted: 31 Oct 2008 at 2:49pm
The rules for this forum are few.

1) Post in the appropriate section. This means:
          Personal attacks in the Flame Room only. Not in any other discussion thread.
          Political discussion in the Political Forum only. Not in any other section.
          Discussion of commercials only in Commercials You Hate / Commercial Talk.
          
2) No racial or religious / cultural slurs are allowed on this forum, even as a joke.
          This includes images.

3) Don't fake your IP address. 

4) We have a one-warning system. You get one warning via PM before being banned,
     with the following exceptions:

5) One username per user. If you are caught using multiple usernames you will be banned.
     Warning or no warning at my discretion.

6) No spamming. Spammers will be banned without warning.
     Do not use the board to plug or promote another website.
     Do not post messages consisting of only a link.

7) Have fun. If you're not having fun, what are you doing here?

8) There will be no posting of violent fantasies on this board.
     This is a place to rant about the commercials that annoy you,
     not the place to describe the many ways you would like to torture and kill the characters in them.

9) In addition to racial / religious slurs, we're eliminating woman-hating speech on the board.
     This would be any violent or hateful comment based solely on the fact that the tv character is a woman, or that she is not thin / pretty / young enough to meet your standards for who is acceptable in a commercial.

ForumAdmin, are you going to want to add a movie topic section as well?  Where as there isn't one where we can discuss these topics.

What about adding something about doing a search before starting a thread (with instructions on which "search" option to use)?

Wonder if the old adage,  "RULES bend, LAWS do not break" should be applied...pretty simple and direct, eh? And really, we somewhat have been living by such, have we not?

I gotta second this, the multiple threads going on about the same commercial/product is getting a little excessive at times. No punishment needed, maybe just a merge?

I say punishment by flogging, except for me.  I'm a special needs child.

That is true.  But that would only work if the people who started the threads with the product name

Wasn't that a rule at some point? I know in the product suggestion forum we need to have the product name in the title, shouldn't it be the same for the commercial forum too?

And some people know the commercial, but don't know the name of the product.  Ironically, that says something about the state of advertising itself...and, as such, seems entirely appropriate here.  What to do?

Yeah, some people seem to think it is a "hoot" to spam or even post jeans ads here lately.

*Just as Hootman used Tiz's name in his post, I use hoot.
*$100 to anyone that can work "Dizzle" into a sentence.   Just Kidding!! LOL
