Please be aware of the following:

- The 9-11 Forum, like all of DU's forums, is dedicated to a peaceful and respectful discussion. Do not engage in personal attacks or ad-hominem commentary. The heart of this is DU's rules for civility. Follow this.

- People come to the 9-11 forum for a variety of personal reasons. The vast majority of discussions here will likely NOT change anyone's beliefs concerning 9-11. Fundamental disagreement is the norm. Understand this.

- There are many beliefs and theories which are highly controversial and outside of the mainstream. Disagreement or acceptance does not make one either deliberate disruptor or provocateur. Accept this.

- Many groups have used 9-11 to pursue very bigoted agendas. A notorious example is where anti-Semites claimed Jews were foretold of 9-11 and stayed home as a result. Remember this.

- 9-11 is an emotional issue. While it is okay to be critical of the administration's actions and policies before and after, it is not okay to belittle the common people who died on that day and the many more who died as a result of policies implemented. Honor this.

If you think someone is deliberately trying to be disruptive or engaging in personal attacks, then you are to use the alert system. You are not to respond in kind. However, alerting on someone because they disagree with you is not a productive use of this system.
