To maintain the fun and “Oasis in a desert of political madness” feel of the lounge, what I would ask of all our great and valued commenters at TSM is when commenting in the Lounge;
• All political comments, memes and links should be about current Australian political events (within the previous 24 hours or thereabouts), and kept fairly light, in the spirit of fun and consideration for other loungers 🙂
• Any and all “rants” on Aussie politics are welcome, but should be placed on either the Soapbox, the Dungeon, or Cornies page. 😀
• Any rants about overseas politics are welcome, but should be restricted to the Soapbox, where they can be readily viewed and discussed by those that are interested in international political affairs, and the deeper political questions 😉
All other areas of silliness, fun and personal sharing are welcome, and in fact encouraged, as we are all adults and friends here 😯 and that was what the lounge was originally intended for 😀
And finally, if a comment gets inadvertently posted in the lounge, which I deem to be better suited to another page, I reserve the right to copy and paste said comment to the relevant page, with a moderators comment that it has been moved, and where to find it. 😉
As has always been the policy at TSM, I will not delete or moderate comments except in extreme circumstances, but will rely on the decency and integrity of all truth seekers, as I know and appreciate that you are all really good and decent people, with no deliberate intent to upset or offend.
After all, we all love this great country, and are united in the common cause of fighting and ultimately defeating the real and present danger of rabid right wing nut-jobbery 😀
