    Default Regarding the Thread about writing the Blues



    This is an astronomy forum. We do appreciate humor and the exchange of good wishes, banalities and such but that is not the focus of this forum and behavior of the nature of many fora is not acceptable here. Let's face it, there are many fora which seem to specialize in distasteful posts and behaviors - and if that is what anyone needs to do I recommend joining such fora and posting there instead.

    Expletives are unacceptable and vulgarities need to be rare if used at all.

    The original opening post not only contained an expletive and a vulgarity but included multiple ways of offering offense to many.

    To further compound the problems this was an unattributed copy of verbiage from a copyrighted book.

    Future behavior in this vein can jeopardize one's status on this forum.

    Take heed:

    1. You may attack ideas but not the person. That is especially true if the person is a forum member.
    2. Avoid posts which unnecessarily provide the opportunity for offense.
    3. Don't post copyrighted material unless you have explicit permission. Use of a small portion of the work product of another and linking to the full product may be acceptable but what happened in this thread was not that. Check the Terms Of Service if you are in doubt or have need for further clarification/details.
    4. Do not use expletives. If you don't know exactly what you are typing, look it up.
