Jet Blast Rules of Engagement (RoE)

To keep JB open & to avoid moderator overload at the same time, here are some blindingly obvious points to keep in mind when posting.
  1. The focus of this board is aviation. You're welcome to participate even if you don't aviate, but do not abuse the courtesy extended to you by the board's principal users. Aviation related subjects that don't fit the other forums are the aims here.
  2. Remember all that stuff you agreed to when you signed up for PPRuNe? If in doubt, look it up. It still holds.
  3. Zero tolerance on racism. Racist remarks will get an otherwise worthwhile post moderated or deleted. One man's joke is another man's racism; the decision rests with the moderators and the board's owners.
  4. Personal attacks on others are not allowed. To be mortally insulting without getting personal is an art form. Acquire the skill. If you can not counter an argument without attacking the person, then do not post here. Play the ball, not the player!
  5. If you are attacked by someone, use the 'report to moderator' function and the post will be looked at by the Mods. Do not revenge like with like.
  6. Ignore trolls. If you feed the troll you are just as guilty.
  7. Aviation is an international endeavour par excellence; bigotry has no place on this bulletin board. If venting intolerant gut feelings is your thing, go do it somewhere else.
  8. Do not hijack other people's threads by endlessly introducing your private fetishes, hang-ups and pet-obsessions. Go see a shrink instead.
  9. Do not post endless newspaper articles (copyright issues) or links to publications on the net. Moderators are obliged to read it all. Really Really Boring And Totally Pointless Snippets Of Information belong in this thread and nowhere else!
  10. We'd prefer you not to discuss politics & religion. Two subjects that almost inevitably seem to lead to some people losing the plot completely and Mods having to work overtime. But since these subjects also lead to some of the most interesting threads, and life can't be all "Mornington Crescent", if you choose to participate in such a thread, show some restraint and a goodly dose of maturity.
  11. Sex, better practised than talked about : Hotel Lobby Rules apply to discussing it here on JB.
  12. Moderation is like abuse; best self inflicted. We much prefer that you moderate your own output but will not hesitate to moderate it for you if required.
  13. Freedom carries with it a responsibility. Neglect the latter, forfeit the former.

Moderators are just ordinary people, with a busy life that extends well beyond the boundaries of this forum, who have volunteered (= been press ganged) into continuing to moderate one of the more difficult forums. It would be very easy to just pull the plug, but all have agreed that whilst we keep it under control it can continue.

We will continue to do so only whilst it is worthwhile.
