The Serious Discussions forum was created as a place for the more thoughtful members at BoAjjang to discuss topics in a more mature manner. BoAjjang is not a discriminatory place, and thus all members are welcome to post in this forum. However, although we do not discriminate on age or race, we must ensure that Serious Discussions does not become another spam forum: all the posts in this forum must be mature. As a result, you must abide by the following rules to participate in this forum. Breaking these rules can result in your posts being edited or deleted or your account being warned or banned.

1) Only post if you have something constructive to offer to the discussion.

2) All members must express tolerance for the views of other members. If you disagree with someone else, make a post that intelligently refutes his or her points, don't just go and bash them personally.

3) Unless you can somehow convey your point(s) brilliantly, Stay away from one-liners and short replies. If you don't know or 'dunno', don't post!

4) The rules of BoAjjang apply to this forum, but will be enforced more strictly. If you cannot follow the basic rules of BoAjjang in the section that requires the most maturity, then you should not only not post in the Serious Discussions forum, but anywhere else as well. We suggest reading the rules again before posting.

5) The Serious Discussions forum will be strictly moderated to ensure a high level of maturity in thought and discussion. You may have your threads and posts closed, edited, or deleted without warning if moderators feel that you've made a post for the sake of posting.

6) If you are going to discuss a news article, comment and provide some insight on it. Simply posting a link or copy/pasting the thread does not contribute to the Serious Discussions forum. If you are copy/pasting a news item, please place it in [quote] tags, or somehow make the text visually different from your commentary (i.e., smaller size, italics, etc.)


The original rule #3 has been removed due to the consideration of our international members.

Omitted Rules:
3) An ability to properly use the English language shows maturity. Use correct grammar and spelling in your posts. The Serious Discussions forum is not a place for "lolx hehe I sooo agreez! :lol:"

Please re-read rule #1. Only post if you have something constructive to add to the discussion.

This means, a one-liner of "I fully agree." is NOT ALLOWED.

The same goes for posts that do not convey any logical thought process.

Furthermore, I'd like to bring your attention to rule #6. This means that the sole content of your post should NOT be a [copy+paste of an article]. Any idiot can do that. Now posting the article, and then adding your own standpoint, is highly encouraged. [This of course does not negate rule #1. One-liners are NOT allowed, unless you can be laconic like Coolin.]

There is a reason for the rules in the SD forum. If you want to discuss things mindlessly, go use the Spam or Lounge forums. This forum is for mature, intelligent conversation.

Repeated violations of the SD forum rules will result in a temp-ban, as well as a revoking of your privileges to post in the SD forum. Attempts to circumvent the temp-ban will result in more drastic consequences.
