The NO2ID forums are designed to serve the NO2ID campaign, and to help people discuss, and understand questions connected with the database state.
They aren't a completely free discussion area.
Our volunteer moderators ("mods
") — who are appointed from established and experienced members of NO2ID — can move, edit, or delete posts, and are encouraged to do so to any which don't follow the rules.
Moderators have absolute discretion. Though it is open to the public this is a private site and we don't have to be fair (though we try to be).
The Main Purposes of these Forums
a) Sharing relevant information between NO2ID campaigners
b) Providing an informal space for visitors to get information about the campaign or the Government's plans.
Specific rules for each main forums are listed in a similar Announcement within that forum. Short descriptions of the topics they cover are in the Index of forums.General Rules
This forum" is solely for topics which are directly related to compulsory ID cards and mass surveillance by government databases. Anything else will probably be moved.
If it is off-topic or otherwise unacceptable, but not too offensive to stand, it will be moved to "Moderated" a forum visible to registered users only. This is so that our users can see how the rules are applied. "Moderated" posts will be
locked for comments at once, and deleted after a couple of weeks.
Posts on civil liberties issued that do not impinge on the database state will be moved to the Civil Liberties forum. We will try to point discussions from there to more appropriate sites, but topics moved there are deemed off-topic and locked.
Material that is likely to cause general offence or legal problems, or containing personal attacks will be removed from the public forums, but may be retained for future reference.The following material is likely to be moderated:
Offensive language & trolling (provocation);
Libel: potentially libellous or defamatory allegations of any kind against any person or organisation;
Infringement of copyright;
Conspiracy theories. 9/11, 7/7, Verichip and any post that links to conspiracy websites/videos will be Moderated. Unusual assertions require evidence;
Advertising or canvassing, whether commercial or non-commercial, in the general forums. (If you have a useful link for the links section, let us know.);
, so you may register under a pseudonym or psedonyms and retain your anonymity if you wish. Guests may also post without registering. Though it will help discussion if you do use a name, and maintain your persona within a thread.
If there's anything you don't understand, please ask. We will try to make it clear.
