13. Is “Free Speech” Allowed?

The only things NOT allowed in chat are:

1.  Sexual conversation with the implication of sexual arousal.

NOTE:  Sexual discussion for the purpose of education is encouraged, and there is nothing that cannot be discussed as long as proper terminology is used (i.e. no slang).

 

2.  Disrespect of others.

This does not mean that people cannot disagree.  We must be open to listening to all ideas and beliefs.  It simply means that people are respectful of each other - i.e. your statements must be presented as YOUR beliefs, and you must NOT try to convince others that your idea is “right” and theirs is “wrong”.

If agreement to disagree cannot be reached, then if someone requests that a conversation be stopped, it must be stopped IMMEDIATELY and without further challenges!
