2.5 Political or religious debates are permitted only in the OTW forum. Membership by request of an administrator. The general board does not allow debates on such subjects, unless it is related to Linux.

2.6 You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by this forum.

3.1 The guidelines of this board apply to all posts on the board, whichever forum they are in. Please adhere to them.

3.2 Debates should be limited to one or two points for discussion. More than this in one topic creates confusion and misunderstandings.

3.5 Off Topic and OTW are places for our members to ask questions of one another and to get to know one another. Have fun!
