Before you post in this (or any other) forum of The Magic Café, please carefully read the rules and etiquette forum. You will find the rules and etiquette near the top of the Main Index page.

Posts that attack, defame or denigrate another person or his opinions will not be tolerated and will be deleted immediately. Be particularly careful about commenting on race, religion and politics, as it is virtually impossible not to offend someone in discussions on these topics--they are best avoided altogether.

We understand that you may not always agree with our decisions when we edit or delete a post or topic. However, we will not waver from our commitment to keep The Magic Café the kind of place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come to discuss, secure in the knowledge that they can participate without fear of being abused, insulted or mistreated.

Chief of Staff

From the Café rules and etiquette:
Religion or Politics:

Though we do have an area for discussing subjects other than magic, the discussing of Religion (other then a real application as it relates to a magical effect Example: Gospel Magic) is strictly Prohibited. The subject is simply too subjective, and more often than not leads to emotional responses and a lot of hurt feelings and/or resentment.

Because the Café has a worldwide membership, politics is another area that is best not tackled here. We are, after all, a magic website. The non-magic area is there for the discussion of lighter subjects, such as movies, best selling novels, etc.

Postings that do not comply will be removed with no reason given. No exceptions!
