We want RMNB to be an open, inclusive community, but we cannot guarantee that RMNB will always be a safe space for all readers. At times, discussions may include triggering topics for some readers.
Threats of violence are not allowed.
Slurs or belittlement targeting race, ethnicity, sex or sexuality, and stuff like that are not allowed. No hate speech, religious attacks, or antagonism about intrinsic characteristics will be tolerated.
Personal attacks are not allowed. Please argue the idea, not the individual.
Please do not fan-police. There are a lot of ways to be a fan of something, and it’s not our place to say which are valid and which are not.
Differences of opinion are not just encouraged; they’re actually necessary to a healthy conversation. We’re just asking for a little civility and a sense of humor.
Please don’t use excessive profanity. Think of it like a PG-13 movie: you get to use one F word every once in a while, so make it count.
Making fun of teams and players is welcome so long as it does not violate the other guidelines.
This is primarily a hockey forum. Detours from the topic are encouraged, but derailing the discussion is not.
Removal of comments and banning is the purview of our moderation team. Warnings may be given, but they are not required.
Use of real names is encouraged, but not mandatory.
Linking to related articles or points of interest is strongly encouraged, but blatant repeated self-promotion will be side-eyed suspiciously.
