Membership Information; Rules of Use
As WSI is, and will always remain a 'family friendly' environment, this board was created as an off-site forum for WSI members to engage in mature political discussion and other topics too spicy for WSI's General boards.

To ensure a mature viewing audience, we have implemented the following rules for registration;
  • You must have an existing account on WSI
  • You must register with your exact username on WSI, and with the email address currently in your WSI profile
  • Due to the nature of the discussions and the use of profanity, the public forums will be accessible only to those who are registered and logged in.
Your account will be activated upon verification of your WSI account. It may take a day or two, as it's not an automatic process.

These forums are intended for the 18+ crowd only, and as such, there are no language filters set. That does not mean this forum is a 'no rules' free-for-all. We don't intend to impose a lot of rules here, but we do have a few, and ask that they be adhered to;
  • Discussion and rhetoric from the Political Forum is NOT to spill onto the WSI General forums. Doing so will result in your account being banned from this forum, and you will also jeopardize your main WSI account.
  • Please exercise maturity and civility in your debates. Resorting to relying on personal attacks adds nothing to your argument, and makes you look like a fool with a neanderthal mentality. Ideas can be disputed or challenged, but attacks on a personal level will not be tolerated and will result in your account being banned from this forum.
  • Keep in mind that there are many opinions out there, everyone has one, if someone is endorsing something completely off the wall, or racist, fascist, etc. arguing with them will drag you down to their level, not make them change their mind. You are better off just ignoring them than you are in engaging in a worthless debate.
  • Registering and posting for the purpose of trolling will not be tolerated. You are either here to participate in discussions, or you do not need to be here.
  • These forums were not intended for mindless chatter and nonsensical posts. They are for discussions. If you want to have a chat-type conversation with someone, take it to IM.
  • You will not post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, libelous, inaccurate, racist, disrespectful, abusive, hateful, harassing, threatening, obscene, profane, pornographic, racially or ethnically offensive, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise a violation of any law.
Please use these forums for the purpose for which they were intended.

I have added huge, bold, red letters to the registration screen to try to get your attention. We are constantly having to decline registrations because two simple rules aren't followed:

Exact same username as WSI

Exact same email address as WSI

If you don't do this, you will get an email telling you your registration was declined.
