Rule #2 is possibly our most important one:

Be respectful. Everyone should feel welcome here.

Learn to disagree without being rude or disrespectful.

It can be difficult sometimes, since western social media thrives on collective outrage, and they knowingly ingrain this into us for years. But please do adhere to this rule, and it will make this place much more enjoyable.

We will not hesitate to issue temp bans (usually a day or two) for those who make everyone’s experience unpleasant.Hit the report button if you see this behavior.

    And finally, you hit some truth. Yes, being disrespectful means different things to different people in different contexts and in different areas of the world. If someone turned to me in public and said “hey buddy can you pass me that thing”, I wouldn’t think twice about it. I’m guessing someone from Brooklyn (e.g. @BrooklynMan) likely calls people meets on the street buddy as a matter of course.

    But go ahead, feel free to keep taking offense to anything you like. You’re not obligated to have a good reason.
