What hence the man to do to the crow? What ought he to do? Ought he to love? To die? To see? To sing? Oh friends, come with me on this journey. Come to the arduous cave and fight the crow and the wildebeest. Doth nothing forget the flee?
Participants and non-participants on this forum can and will be banned by the moderation staff for any reason or non-reason whatsoever. Appeals will be considered on a first-come-first-serve basis, unless a moderator decides otherwise. Justice is guaranteed, but your conception of the just is most likely wrong. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, so mote it be. Abrahadabra.
This is not a place for learns. Go ask your question on /r/askphilosophy. Chances are one of us will be the one who answers it anyway. And try not to mention /r/badphilosophy. /r/Badphilosophy is not an accurate representation of philosophy as a profession nor reddit's philosophical community.
Streaks on the china, never mattered before, who cares. When you drop-kicked your jacket as you came through the door, no one glared. All hands look out below, theres a change in the status quo. Gonna need all the help that we can get. According to our new arrival, life is more than mere survival. We just might live the good life yet.
If it feels like you're going to get banned, you probably are.
If your link doesn't end in "?context=X", don't be upset when you get banned.
Don't vote in linked threads - Remember, you're only a visitor of Bedlam. Speaking reason with the inmates, though futile, may be entertaining but don't tap on the glass. They are mercurial specimens.
Trolley memes are an instant ban. So are non-trolley memes.
Stop fucking linking to anything and everything involving Sam Harris. Only link to things about him that are both bad and philosophy.
Complaining about being unfairly banned is a retroactive justification for being banned. If this doesn't make sense to you now, it will.

A. Have an alcoholic beverage within reach while viewing this subreddit.
B. If you're going to crosspost Reddit-born bad philosophy here, try to educate the bad philosopher beforehand. It's rare but they may actually learn something. Otherwise, more bad philosophy to be shared.
C. Stop posting red pandas. It's overdone.
D. There's nothing wrong with a man wanting to be little spoon. And, you know what, I feel sorry for you; you're like... oh, look at me, I'm a man, so manly, I'm always big spoon, like a man! Yeah, ok, well, I'm going to be over here getting to, you know, like... eat cake, watch cool videos, hang out, and be fucking little spoon! I'm not ashamed, it's awesome! Fuck you, man, you don't know me!
E. .np links are useless and annoying, don't use them
F. Someone saying something mean about your religion isn't bad philosophy. Take it to /r/badreligion.
