The Naughty Corner is officially launched.


If you wish to join, please click the link below and select Naughty Corner from Current Memberships

http://forum.downsizer.net/groupcp.php

All requests will be vetted by the group moderator to ensure no under-age users join.


This part of the forum has only two rules:

1. No member of Downsizer outside the group can be discussed - ever!

2. Anything illegal, libellous or defamatory will be removed.

Other than that - fill your boots! There will be swearing, there will be heated debates, blasphemy and personal insults.

Any debates that get too heated on the main forum may also be moved into the naughty corner.

If at any time you wish to unsubscribe, click the link above again, and click the 'unsubscribe' button. The opt-out takes effect immediately, and you can always join again at a later date.

What happens to the contributors who don't feel the need to throw insults around when someone wades in and starts doing it on the main forum? Can the original debate be left on the main forum up until that point so it can continue without the 'naughty people's input?

Yes, we'll split it. It's usually quite easy to see when it starts, and all concerned will be asked

Do you think it is a good idea encourage name calling? If I don't join, I wouldn't like to think I was being called names behind my back where I can't see

I believe point one is meant to address that. As I understand it, if you arent a member of the naughty corner and therefore free to put your own pointof view across, being talked about is off limits

Nope, only group members can see, join in and read posts.
