Return to Apple Inc.
To all participants: Welcome to the Apple Inc. board on SI. This thread is now moderated. Here are the rules:

We don't have to agree with each other about everything, or even anything. Bullish or bearish opinions about AAPL, and negative or positive opinions about Apple, Inc. or its products are fine.

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.

If you disagree with someone, feel free to express your disagreement. But do so in a civil manner. There is no reason to call people "stupid" or "crazy" or any other derogatory name.

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

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

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above notwithstanding, the moderator reserves the right to keep a ban in place despite the user's request to have it rescinded, on a case by case basis.

It's all about having a civil discussion. Off-topic posts are OK, unless they violate the rules as laid out above. As SI management requests, please don't bring up any political issue that doesn't directly affect Apple more than it would any other company. Corporate tax policies? No dice. Digital Rights legislation? Fair game.

And hey, let's be careful out there.

UPDATE - 8/8/11 - 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 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, that is not a topic for discussion here.
