Welcome to the Apple Inc. board on SI. This thread is moderated. If you wish to participate here, please read at least the first two sections below.


The basic rule is that all participants must be polite to each other. Try to imagine that you are sitting in a living room with everyone else. Don't say anything you wouldn't say in that situation.

No name calling. Disagree with another person's words all you want, but don't insult the person.

Due to SI policy, political comments are off limits here, unless there is an issue that specifically affects Apple. See below for a bit more about this if you care.

It's all about having a civil discussion. And hey, let's be careful out there.

You've now read the rules. If you want to know what happens if you violate them, see "BANS," below.


Off-topic posts are OK, unless they violate the rules as laid out above. We request that you put "OT" at the top of any posts that aren't related to Apple, its stock, or its competitors. Forgetting to use OT is not an offense that will get you banned. It will just make others shun you. ;-)

Please keep in mind that this forum is here to help people make better decisions about whether or not to invest in AAPL. But there is a kind of a collegial, dinner party atmosphere, and we do go off the reservation quite a bit.


Violators of the rules will usually receive a warning, and a second offense will probably result in a ban. In the case of especially egregious violations, a ban may come without warning.

When warranted, a ban may be imposed for being a general nuisance and/or generally disrupting civil discourse.

If you have been banned, but would like to be reinstated as a thread participant, it's simple, really. Send me a PM, agreeing to abide by the rules henceforth. The reinstatement will be conditional for ninety days, during which time the ban will be reinstated without warning if there are new infractions.

The above notwithstanding, the moderator reserves the right to keep a ban in place despite the user's request to have it rescinded, on a case by case basis.

All decisions about bans are made by the moderator, who serves at the pleasure of the participants of the thread. You may feel free to provide public or private feedback, which may or may not be heeded.

Fleshing out the anti-politics policy

Having conferred with Brad via PM, I want to clarify this board's policy with respect to political discussions.

If a political issue affects Apple as a company more than it would most companies, it's fair game for discussion here. A hypothetical example would be if Congress were debating a bill that would make it illegal for anyone to download any media file to more than one device. Clearly, Apple would be affected a lot more by the outcome of such a debate than would, say, IBM, Dell, HP, etc.

If a political issue affects the macro economy in some way, but doesn't affect Apple any more than it would any other company, it is not a topic for discussion here.
