I reckon the only rule you need is<br><br>"Treat other forum members as you would wish to be treated"<br><br>An oldie but a goody, and a pretty good rule for life in general. Thankfully most of the members of this here forum seem to have got this one down. The FZ forum truly is a pretty cool place, with very little genuine unpleasantness. The odd petulant frenzy can be forgiven, and more often than not is fairly entertaining.<br><br>[quote author=sleeping_in_a_jar link=board=general;num=1045845807;start=0#2 date=02/21/03 at 10:19:44]Do what you wanna<br>Do what you will<br>Just don't mess up<br>Your neighbors thrill<br>      - F. Zappa<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>Couldn'ta said it better myself! ;D<br>

[quote author=Ronnys_Noomies link=board=general;num=1046087375;start=0#3 date=02/24/03 at 13:50:41]I firmly believe that we should create a set of rules that would promote a civil exchanging of ideas about our chosen topic (Frank Zappa, of course). Here are some of my ideas, see what you think!<br><br>1.    Each poster should agree (on the honor system) to post only one image per day, in deference to our 56K members.<br><br>2.   Post should be no longer than 2 paragraphs of about 3-4 inches (how many centimeters is that?), in deference to those of us who like succinct posts.<br><br>3.   While humor is to be encouraged, let's police ourselves and keep it to minimum, so that we don't waste space that could be better used for serious musical discussions.<br><br>4.    Since this is about FZ, posts about his music and life are fine. But, let's not speculate about his family, bandmembers, his political views, and other personal matters.<br><br>5.   Even though they are provided, let's keep the use of tags and smileys to a minimum, as they can become rather annoying after a while. Taste is important in any forum.<br><br>6.   All non-FZ topics should be avoided, especially if they poke fun at something, or are just there for amusement. There are plenty of other forums where this type of thing is entertained all the time. For example, there's a great Pink Floyd forum, that just let's people run wild. And that's cool.... for them.<br><br>7.   Women who post humor should be careful to ensure that the jokes are indeed funny, because women are not men.<br><br>8.   And I think we can all agree that there should be no: political cartoons; personal pictures; anti-government rhetoric; pro-government rhetoric; silly "worthless" ideas; or laughing of any kind.<br><br>That's it. Let's keep this a pleasant place for everyone. What do you all think? [/quote]<br>I especially agree with #7. How about we all just say nothing. To be safe, I mean.<br>
