When it comes to politics, religion and all the 'isms' e.g sexism and racism, how do your beliefs as a forum owner dictate how you run your forum? For example I've noticed that forum owners in general refer to members as a 'he' or assume that the poster is a white male. If politics are involved members are often defined as a bleeding heart liberal or conservative with nothing in-between. This thread was of particular interest to me because it was a bandwagon I could easily subscribe to and I'll admit to having a pathological hatred of all religion. However I'm also very much aware that what was posted could be grounds for capital punishment in some societies. I've come to the conclusion that I have to accept that my view of these potentially difficult issues is not always balanced and therefore I've somewhat reluctantly learnt to rely on a consensus of opinion from other staff members to set the tone. However I've also come to realise that people of a certain age group don't have a perspective that is in sync with the modern age. Without going into a lot of detail this news item serves as a prime example of what I'm attempting to convey. So to cut to the chase, in an ever changing world, what steps do you take to define what is acceptable content on your forums.
