    News & Current Events Statement of Purpose

    The News & Current Events forum is for all members to discuss newsworthy events that are currently taking place in the world. All news and current events must be documented or validated with a link to a credible online news source in the original post (OP).

    Political and policy discussions should take place in the Politics forums as there is a focused area just for that topic available.

    Handling Disagreements

    Members who participate in the News & Current Events forum are expected to treat one another with courtesy and respect at all times, ESPECIALLY when you disagree with each other. It is not a flame for a member to disagree with another member's argument or opinion on a specific topic.
    • When you disagree, address the context of the post and not the poster.
    • When you disagree with someone's position, you should post evidence and supporting statements for your position. This policy, sometimes referred to as "X means Y because of Z", must be followed especially when posting claims that are widely considered to be controversial.
    • When you disagree and you find yourself becoming frustrated and angry, step away from the computer and give yourself time to cool down.
    • Always proofread your post before hitting the "Reply" button.

    Additional Guidelines

    The minor children of public figures are off limits for negative comments on CF.

    Thread Tags: Thread tags are relevant keywords or terms that relate to the topic and/or content of a thread. Tags enable you to find other threads which address the same topic as tagged by other members. Tags are not for flaming or rude comments. The CF site wide rules apply to tags and tags which violate the rules may receive staff actions. Staff are able to see who posted a thread tag. While we want to encourage everyone to tag threads and contribute to the system, please think before you tag.

    Same-Sex Marriage and Gay Rights and Transgenderism/Transexualism: Discussion of these topics must comply with the sitewide rule barring the promotion of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and transgenderism/transexualism. Discussion and debate should only be directed toward political, legal, historical and civil rights issues, and should not be directed toward the morality of homosexuality or same-sex marriage or transgenderism/transexualism.

    CF staff reserves the right to edit, remove, move or close any thread when deemed necessary.

    If you have issues with another member and can't work it out or are disgruntled about a staff decision, please click on the "Support" tab in the header navigation bar, or "Contact Us" at the bottom of the page, and open a new support ticket. Discussion of members or staff actions in the forums is considered disruptive and can result in additional staff actions.
