    At the time of registration on Refuge Forums, Terms & Conditions are agreed upon by all. Specifically included is the following paragraph:
    By clicking the Agree button, you warrant that you WILL NOT post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, personal attacks, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws. Doing so may result in banning the user from the site. Each violation of this policy/rule will be handled on a case by case basis, and the outcome will be the sole decision of the owner(s) of Refuge Forums.​
    Often posted items may involve issues of emotional or closely held opinions. Never-the-less, posts made under such circumstances are not exempt from published Terms and Conditions. All forums are subject to Refuge Forums standards at all times.

    Slang terms are sometimes used to describe/embellish points of view. For the purpose of politically oriented posts, the following guidelines for ?acceptable/not acceptable? slang terms are set.

    Liberal oriented slang:
    Okay?
    lib
    lefty
    leftist
    left winger
    Dem

    Not Okay--
    libtard
    libaloon
    democrap
    derogatory insult play on politician's name (Obummer, Hildabeast, Beast, etc)

    Conservative oriented slang:
    Okay--
    rep
    righty
    rightist
    right winger
    Repub

    Not Okay--
    tea bagger
    neocon
    bigot
    tRump
    derogatory insult play on politician's name

    The list is not intended to be all inclusive. Each post is judged based upon it?s own merit. As so well put by Supreme Court Justice Stewart? ?I know it when I see it?. Please note that unacceptable posts will be edited and the poster may be notified. Continued posts will result in progressive follow up including the potential removal of posting privileges.

    An occurrence sometimes observed in threads is the tossing around of offensive terminology. Specifically name calling and more specifically using variations of the term "bigot".

    For a refresher, all Refuge Forum users who "pressed enter" agreed to the following:

    Name calling specifically fits within the policy. Please be assured that non-compliance with this policy will result in appropriate follow up.

    In short run terms, while characters such as Mitt Romney remain pretty much media personalities and not official candidates; slang term identifiers such as "Mittens" are okay. Still, generally speaking, refrain from using disrespectful terms. Thanks for your understanding.

    Isn't just calling someone a "liberal" derogatory in and of itself?

    It's possible... but environmental ambience may apply.
