No voting abuse, begging for (down)votes, vote brigading or using fake accounts to add extra (down)votes.

Vote drama is not welcome either (e.g. mass downvoting a user you're feuding with, or complaining at length about voting). Voting abuse will periodically be reviewed and users guilty of it will either be suspended or will have their votes stop counting.



there is of course also this

13) No other disruptive toxic behavior, trolling or attacking the general community
This is a catch-all rule that will be applied on a case by case basis to any behavior that is deemed inordinately disruptive to our community. Humour is appreciated; trolling is not. If you dislike the community find one you like, attacking this one and dramatic goodbyes will be removed and the poster suspended.


you don't like a2k, do like so many others have done - and leave

@blatham,
They don't post on this website though.

That's also why you're free to call them pretty much any name you'd like, short of racial slurs or the like.

With other A2K members, the standards are supposed to be a little different.

No. It's just that I have an impolitic weakness for mother in law jokes.

@nimh,
A distinction I ought to have acknowledged. It is just that I feel I have a moral responsibility to defend farmerman. He was, after all, an orphan abandoned by his real parents, Dale Evans and Trigger.

His brother, Bullet, always got to ride shotgun in Nelliebelle.

@edgarblythe,
I know. I know. So unfair. Bullet lived out his privileged life in sunny California but as fate would have it, on a holiday in Nantucket, mom and dad just chucked farmerman out into the surf and flew back home. How the whalers found the water-loggged little tyke is another story detailed in my book, Harpooning Anecdotes.

We actual trolls get a bad rap! I want to state as one of the biggest trolls on able2know, I would never waste my time thumbing down your silly posts.

Someone we might have the time and the inclination to do such a thing. But it ain't trolls; we have more important things to do.

This is interesting, I did not know this was a rule. I know for a FACT that some posts are PURPOSEFULLY down voted so they "disappear" because they aren't quite offensive enough to be removed.

Your Gravatar looks a lot more like a orc than like a troll.

Just saying.
