Posting rules for The Many Faces of Barack
• No personal attacks.
• No harassment or demonization of a particular individual.
• No disruptive behavior or off-topic remarks for their own sake.
• We will not allow users to sign up with accounts impersonating identifiable public figures.
The above are all grounds for revocation of privileges (banning). Banning will be determined by one of the site administrators, directors, editors, moderators or what ever other title we see fit to call our owners, editors and hall monitors and will only take place after a warning.
Banned users are invited to use the contact form to make their case for reinstatement. Reregistering under alternate names, initiating blog wars, emailing directly or otherwise contacting the moderators will not result in reinstatement, and may cause us to snark viciously.
Our site, our rules! Sorry guys, that’s just the way we roll!
