General Warning on the Purpose of the Christian News Board


It seems that lately the moderators have had to clean up a number of debates on the Christian News board. Per the rule I quote below, this is going to stop. The Christian News board is to be used only for the posting of news stories and discussion of those stories. This board is NOT to be used for debate or polemics. Anyone caught violating this rule for the next few weeks will receive a formal warning for violating the general purpose of the Christian News board.
