    So racist comments are forbidden, what about racist images? And what is defined as racist/bigoted comments? Are we talking about saying the N word or calling someone a F** or does it also include stereotypes?

    Images are included and yes the N word, F-- etc. If anyone is unsure as to what is not acceptable please ask a staff member before using it or you risk the chance of getting a yellow card. IMO most of us know what is acceptable and what is not but error on the side of caution.

    I figured the words were included but is the stereotype type stuff included as well, I figured that would be a grey area and imo it's better to clarify now.

    Like for example telling a black person to go eat some fried chicken and drink some koolaid. None of the words are offensive but imo would still be an offensive statement. So just was wondering if that is included as well.

    Yes that is included as well. A comment like that would be a cardable offense due to it's intent.

    Good rule......freedom of speech as written by our founding fathers didn't mean to include
    every single bit of name calling, derogatory remarks, and the like. Keeping it clean &
    civil should never be considered a BAD thing!! :icon_mrgreen::clap::icon_cool:

    cpgobrowns has earned a card for his post that didn't add anything to this thread and was a direct offense to the new rule. Anyone else want to poke the bear?

    Whatever it is, I am not about to start playing the gray area game with this rule.

    As to the "fried chicken and watermelon" type stuff. Sweets nailed it but think of it this way. If you would say it to someone on the street and most likely get your butt beat, nuts kicked or shanked, you probably shouldn't say it in here.

    is it still ok to call smeagle a cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, rodless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey crap?

    we'll see who the first one is that recognizes that rant ..........
