Hey, I have a question,
Why are there rules to this forum?
Thanks

Because we get people on here that do disruptive things like attacking people for no good reason and doing things like proselyting their beliefs. Just like in society, there are rules to keep order.

Rules here are a guide or principle for governing action, like keeping condescending jerks from thinking only religion has rules from proselytizing here, and self righteous jerks that think they are better than atheists because they aren't . Solitary
There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.

Atheism has one rule. Lack of belief in god. Everything else is up for debate.

Witness, if you have a question or a point, just state it. Asking leading questions is just too obvious, man.

Okay, My question is, how do you justify the use of rules on this forum?
