Two New Forums

Postby zwdiesel » Wed Jul 31, 2013 10:24 am

MEEN, we all found this place at different times for different reasons. We have all developed a level of friendship. We show up here on a daily basis to talk about our lives with our friends. Yes, this is a gaming website, but it has grown into something much bigger. Friends share recipes, stories about their kids, and talk politics. It is my great pleasure to announce the reinstatement of two forums: Weaponry and Politics! First and foremost, know that these are being reinstated on a probationary basis. The MAAN Code of Conduct will be followed. Second, we are starting fresh. The old forums are gone, and the new ones will have some new ground rules:

Weaponry
-This thread will be for the discussion of physical firearms, hunting, shooting sports, and the like.
-Posts of a political nature will not be tolerated. Posts regarding gun control, bans, etc belong in the Politics forum.
-The buying/selling of firearms will not be allowed.
Forum Link: http://www.maanclan.com/viewforum.php?f=376

Politics
-The MAAN C.o.C. will be strictly enforced. Keep posts civil.
-Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
-Respect your fellow MAAN's opinion.
-Agree to disagree.
-Keep religion out of it.
Forum Link: http://www.maanclan.com/viewforum.php?f=377

We are all adults here. Follow the basic guidelines, and all will be well. Show off your new gun, or share tales of your latest hunting trip. Bring back the lively political debates of the past. But keep it civil, keep it MAANly. Remember, we're all friends here.

Why is religion still excluded? Isn't that a little discriminatory?

Awesome news! And congrats on your greenmanship.

+1. My Christian faith is my worldview therefore it dictates my politics. What exactly do you mean by keeping religion out of it? If you mean that We can't say that one religion is better than another, I'm good with that as we are a diverse group of faiths and we should treat others with respect whether we believe in God, gods or the State. If we can talk politics and be respectful then surely we can talk about religion and be just as respectful. :2cents:

That's the issue though. Up to this point we haven't been respectful when religion or other controversial topics are brought up. We'll see how this goes for now.

Nope.

Religion walks hand in hand with emotion. :2cents:

I firmly believe that the greatest evils are committed wearing the guise of Religion. So much so that I really am thinking of becoming an atheist.

I have no problems either way in keeping all things separated. Just asking for a clarification, though. A lot of peoples views on certain political points are based on religious beliefs. If, in discussing reasons for a certain political view one way or another, can an answer of "it being based on a religious belief" be included, or do we need to keep any answers of that nature out of it?

I see both sides about religion and don't know how I feel. I think politics is something that people can agree to disagree on, learn or see something they haven't thought of before. But religion is pretty much a non conversation. People have a line in the sand and their fingers in their ears. Also, things were fine for years with politics, but it was that God or no God thread that really got out of control.

Yes, just won't have any open discussions about buying or selling.

My issue with the Republican party is they don't separate the religion from the politics. Everything is about religion to them. So I'm fine with this.
