1. For those of you who do not understand what a sock puppet is, please watch this video: Notice that Shari Lewis actually speaks for both herself and Lamb Chop. While she affects a different personality and voice for Lamb Chop, Lamb Chop is made from a sock and speaks from the mind of Shari Lewis. They are the same person.
2. On this board each person is allowed to have one name. When one posts as additional people with other names, one is using sock puppets. It is not allowed on this board and will get the person removed from the board.
3. If you change your screen name, please add "formerly XXXXX" to your signature so people will know that you previously posted by a different name.
4. No more madness from other boards. If you have an issue with someone from another board, resolve it at that board.
5. Please take a moment and question your motives for speaking with someone. If you are attempting to insult or ridicule them, DON'T. If your reason is to win an argument, stop as it does not generate productive discussion. If your intention is to share idea as and explore the ideas of the person you are speaking with, then go ahead.
6. Occasionally we all get to a point in a discussion where we point out someone's lack of logic or lack of consistency or whatever. Try to do so as kindly as possible.
7. Just because someone believes something other than what you believe, does not make them an idiot. Do not treat people that way as it is not conducive to discussion.
Our aim is for respectful, intelligent discussion that people can learn and grow from. Thank you.
