  1. Be nice - No trolling, personal attacks, hate speech, bullying, harassment, etc.
  2. No spam - Don't post repeated links to a single website for advertising, and no crowdfunding (exceptions to this rule may be allowed if you contact the mod team).
  3. No pseudoscience - This includes any form of proselytizing or promoting personal agendas
  4. Don't misrepresent your education/knowledge - Use of user flair (and post flair) is highly encouraged, but not required. Speculation is fine as long as it is stated as such, but an abundance of incorrect information may result in a ban.

Please use the report feature to notify the moderators of rule violations so they can be dealt with quickly.
