Hello,

Just wanting to know what the rules are before making a post. Can anyone point me in the right direction? i.e. what can I put into a post and what is banned, etc?

Also, do the users and owners of this forum believe in free speech? In other words, if someone was to have a totally new idea within Egyptology, would that person be banned or would they be permitted to present their idea? How open to new ideas and free speech is this forum and the Egyptology community in general?

Thanks.

Greetings, Lutz.


I am not pushing these fringe theories but debunking them. Is that permitted?

Could you also let me know the rules on posting links? Some of my ideas are unique to me and I do not have the time to re-write my work, which is on my blo-g. I do not profit from my blo-g. It is purely for information purposes.

Is it the word 'blo-g' that is preventing this message from going through?

All of the rules are explained here:

http://forum.egyptiandreams.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=2

Stick to them and you'll be fine. Break them and you'll be banned. And don't kid yourself there is any such thing as free speach; it doesn't exist.

If you are the person that signed up the other day to purely post a page of links to your blog, well that will get you banned every time.

Is it impossible to link to articles I have written?

This is a discussion board, for discussing. If you have signed up purely to post links to your external site then that is not allowed.

You are allowed to post links within your discussions, as do other posters.

You are not allowed to just post "I've written about such and such, see it here." without any actual content within your post, as you did the other day.

If you want people to go and visit your site without actually posting any content or discussion here I'm quite happy to discuss advertising rates with you.

Thanks for explaining what is expected in a post. I am not trying to promote my blo-g but pass on some ideas. I shall write a post outlining my ideas and post links at the bottom to back them up. I hope that will be acceptable.

I would like to point out that the pyramids still remain one of the world's greatest mysteries and as such deserve open debate on even the craziest of ideas because one day one of them will solve the puzzle. In this field, new ideas should be welcomed.

I have posted on the pyramids, tombs and monuments forum because that is where I felt it was most fitting. The 'General Discussions' forum says it is about things other than Egypt, but my post is in part about Egypt. Hopefully you will give it a fair hearing.

Can you elaborate? Why isn't there free speech? Under this forum format...or was it a general statement about discourses?

Free speech in general is a nice idea but there are limits to what you can actually say freely. Go outside and start shouting racist comments and see how quickly that 'free speech' gets you arrested, beaten or killed. Spout lies about somebody and you will usually find yourself being sued for deformation or libel. You just simply are not 'free' to say what you like when you want.

It is usually people that want to cause controversy or stir up trouble that hide behind 'free speech'.

This forum has rules and regulations, so no, you are not free to post whatever you like. Free speech doesn't exist here or on any other forum I've ever visited. Somebody is always getting banned somewhere for trying to exercise their "free speech".
