Principles of User Content and Conduct

My interest as an administrator is not preserving users' freedom of speech, but in maintaining a tranquil atmosphere in line with Christian principles. Anything that disturbs my sense of peace, or that I would feel ashamed for any friend or family member to see, tend not to be in line with that.

This isn't to stifle discussion of serious topics; I want those I interact with to feel comfortable opening up. This isn't to judge those who don't 'measure up' to some standard. It is simply a notice that I'm not inclined to suffer obscene, profane, hostile, disrespectful, and such like conversation if I don't have to, and it seems reasonable that I shouldn't have to on my own website, which you are visiting.

Someone's attitude and direction are what matters most. A contentious person is not likely to tarry long, but if you are trying to get along and are honestly forgetting, we can work with that.
