Hey kids, I thought I'd take some of the pressure of my blog (as well as myself!) and start a blog for people who want to battle it out on thought provoking (not to mention emotion evoking) topics.
There's gotta be ground rules for this kind of thing or else it'll turn into a total blood bath.
*Don't go into this with a chip on your shoulder - it won't help, trust me.
*Don't take anything discussed here personally, don't go out intending to make comments that people will take personally - use your common sense in discerning this.
*Do your homework - if you're gonna make a statement, be prepared to be asked to back it up.
*If you're going to comment on something that someone's written and they refer to something, check it out! They've obviously referred to it for a reason and it'll make a whole lot more sense for you.
*If you get angry and upset at what someone's written then breathe, make yourself a coffee (or nearest relevant beverage), calm down, think about it and then reply to it.
*Be logical in your argument - make it easy for the person to understand what you're saying.
*This is the usual ethical palaver - but don't make derogatory comments about or towards people's gender, physical attributes, religion, ethnicity, etc, blah. You guys know all this - I'm just saying it so I can say that I've said it and so you guys can say that you've been told.
The name of the blog may or may not change when my brain it functioning properly. This blog is open to membership which means that if you want to start some thought provoking discussion, you can! Just let me know by commenting to this post that you wanna be a member and I'll get you all started with that. Be patient with this kind of stuff. An exciting and thought provoking topic will be posted soon for you all to duel over.
