Unfortunately, a recent post has forced us admins to confront the issue of "hate speech." It is to the forum's credit we've gone as far as we have without needing a rule against it. We have discussed wording behind the scenes and decided on something short and general. That said, our new 19th rule, which is number 18, because we like to keep the Nuclear Option last, reads as follows:

Quote: Rule 18

While we try to promote free speech as much as we can, racial slurs, vulgar terminology or advocating violence against any person or group of people are not welcome.



We thank you in advance for keeping this rule under advisement.

I didnít realize the mathlete post rose to that level. :-P
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

It didn't. I reserve the right to use the terms mathlete and Math Guys as respectful and complimentary terms. :)

Thinking back to my high school days, I'd have to say the mathletes have had more success than the athletes. By sheer coincidence, I'd say the four or five most successful people I know were both.

I'd prefer we not draw attention to it again.

Boz used a horrible term to describe Mexicans in the political thread
