The Rules

The RulesFar too many commenters here at B4B have been ignoring the rules hinted at in our About and Mission pages. So for the benefit of those of you who are still unclear, I present the B4B Rules. Here is the Cliff’s Notes version for the short of attention span:

  1. No profanity
    This is a family-friendly site.
  2. No spam
    including “Vote for Ron Paul!”
  3. No filibustering
    “DESU” x 9000, for example.
  4. No links to adult sites or images
    goatse or tubgirl, for example.
  5. No posting of other people’s private information
    real name, email/snail mail and ip addresses, for example.

Offenders will have their comments edited or deleted.

Repeat offenders will be banned.

Moderator decisions are final. (So no whining.)

Keep disagreements cordial and respectful.

Clear? As a bonus, those who read the B4B Rules page in its entirety will learn how to embed links and to format their comments like an expert. Thanks for adhering to our rules and for making your comments productive and useful to read.

B4B loves all of its readers, each and every one of you. Honest! And we enjoy most of our commenters. We’ll enjoy more of you if you simply follow the rules. Thanks in advance.

Update: I have been informed that Housekeeping & Maintenance posts are supposed to have a link to housekeeping hints. There. Now this post is complete. Whew!

  1. Offenders will have their comments edited or deleted.
    (lol, they even edit and/or delete without a logical reason here)
    Repeat offenders will be banned.
    (unless they have an IP scrambler, like my friend Moxom, the man they could not ban)
    Moderator decisions are final. (So no whining.)
    (hehehe, good joke…..”the Führer is always right”)
    Keep disagreements cordial and respectful.
    (look who’s talking)

  2. The no fillerbustering thing; thank you. I wasn’t saying because it is your blog but it really was getting tedious reading these repetitive on line replies from certain parties.

  3. When one encounters one of those so called, “Filibustering” type comments, one can rest assured that nothing will be included in the comment that was not in the phrase the first few times that it was repeated, BJ. This tip should help you to save time when scrolling through comments.

  4. How about

    4. No liberalism. Zero tolerance.

    They say stupid things, troll, and make up blatantly wrong arguments, and yet they still come here and post and post and post… There are better places to witness Darwinists in action. Such as your local zoo: kidnap all the spammers here, put them in the zoo, and give yourself and the zoo profits while making the guests very amused! Everyone except the Darwinists win, and since they don’t care about God, we don’t care about them. Keep in mind those that don’t know Christianity are not doomed, but those who know and refuse to accept it are.

  6. hey, bob, i think Armand just made a funny at your expense. i think it’s funny how they said no desu x 10000 (it should be no DESU x OVER 9000!!!), and they don’t even know what it means. then again, these bloggers typically don’t know what they’re talking about, but they just cover that up with over the top vernacular and propagandist writing.

    [Ed Note: Ha ha ha, that’s so funny. Boy you sure burned us. We have no way of knowing that “desu” is a Japanese copula, ie, a word used to link a subject with a predicate. So you’re so sucky. Or is that Suiseiseki? Go away, elephant snout.]

    While this does not exactly address the comment’s original intention, it does show an excellent ability on the part of the ed to use the internet.

  8. Bones, Ednote, not snouts. learn your anatomy, or is that sinful? it’s hard to tell what’s condemned by you people, besides everything fun and decent. in any case, i still don’t think you understand WHY we use DESU. this is because you are an outsider, and a simple google search will not give you satisfactory insight. Copy-pasta aside, why don’t you look into Suiseiseki’s anime, Rozen Maiden? it’s not as violent as that other one you watched (the name escapes me at the moment, since i don’t watch it)and used as the sole source of judgement on all japanese media.
    wait, if you found that not all anime is violent pornography, that could mean you were (omg) WRONG! heavens to betsy, that could destroy everything you’ve worked for.

    No; you play games with real human lives.

    Sorry, I just felt like saying that. Also, ban me, please. I would like to show you how hard it is.

  10. The Moderator should ban himself then for breaking his own rules.

    “Sorry, I just felt like saying that. Also, ban me, please. I would like to show you how hard it is.”

    Comment by interpreted — November 16, 2007 @ 11:14 am

    Correct. It’s virtually impossible to ban people because of the ease at logging in with different IDs and from different IP addresses.

    Really what the MOD’s saying here is “If you have an opinion that differs from mine, I’ll alter your posts, edit your posts, censor your posts and then ban you”.

    While I am unsure as to how exactly that relates to watching less violent animes, I can offer that dolls are a popular and exquisite art form. There are many conventions, websites, publications all dedicated to dolls, doll making, collecting, and the same of dolls’ houses. You should really look into the culture there, iut is amazing what some of those people can do.
    This post was about as on topic as many others from this site.
