    • Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

Right, and the South is where it's needed the most. They say the South has changed since then, but I'd say it's only because of laws like that keeping it that way. It's like when someone is put on medication for something, then when they think they're better they take themselves off of it and they go back to being the same as or worse than before, not even thinking to realize that maybe why they were doing well was because of the medication.

are you the one considering law school? You have logic I would suggest for you maybe law school even if its tough to find work...its tough to finding work depending on where you are.....anyway the voter right law really revolves around whether or not we believe we live in a post racial world....social psychology holds that we are not subject to advert racism so much as covert, meaning its there, just not as in your face.

my understanding of it regarding the voter rights act is they are deferring to the states to enact the laws as they see fit unless congress can agree on legislation, but congress agreeing most legal scholars say thats not gonna happen, so in the end the voter rights decision is a set back...

No :asham: I think Escapade was considering Law School. I was thinking Medical School, but of course still unsure. Thank you for the suggestion, though. Maybe I could at do a little research into the idea ^_^...Right. Living in Tennessee, I can say that social psychology is spot on in that point. It has all shifted to covert racism and as far as voting, the last election showed how many loopholes can be and were found. I honestly believe that decision today will be Pandora's box when it comes to voting in the South and perhaps not even there alone. And to think, it was just renewed in 2006. Wow.

:lmao: @ the bolded. I don't know, I enjoy a good argument/debate and pursuing justice, but I guess my thing against it would be what if I had to defend/argue for someone I knew was in the wrong. I would have to make a choice between my paycheck or my morality, and that isn't a choice I want to be in the position to make.

If that's the case, which it could very well be, my question would be why.

I asked a co-worker who is going to Law School in Arkansas this fall the question of how he would handle that exact situation.

He said something to the lines of 'I'm defending an argument and not the person'.. It's about the case and not the individual

That's probably the one of the better answers I've heard to that question, but I still don't think it's a situation I could personally handle without feeling any guilt, honestly, even if my focus is on the case. However, the burden of proof is on those suing my client and it is their responsibility to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't know, I am interested in Law School enough to research more just cautiously.

well in these final hours.....I believe gay marriage is a human right...you have the right to marry and commit to whom you wish...the outcome can be on one of two sides, the right side of history or the wrong one.....many countries have moved on far from this issue and gay marriage is not relevant to them....but in the U.S. its as if to say we give gay marriage some legitimacy we give gays our approval to live. My argument has always been voting on the rights of others different from you is a conflict of interest. Gay rights are not about what the popular opinion is, its about giving due to those that have it coming. Unfortunately we live in a country that believes gays should not get a damn thing....either way this decision is going to be huge
