  • Following the Forum Rule isn't hard.

    A lot of people have complained that the GU Forums are too strict. What these people fail to realize is that there really is only ONE rule: Don't be a Jackass! (Meaning: Respect your fellow community members.)

    The trick to being immediately compliant is to think about the one person you respect the most, or the person who, if you met them, you would treat with the utmost respect. Then write your threads, posts, and responses as if you were talking TO that person.

    Most people forget that very basic idea of "respect" because net anonymity hides the face of the person they are conversing with. Assumptions have to be made about their personal character and/or their intent.
