No Politics; rules for posting non sports news & What constitutes a political topic
Ever since we banned political and religious thread certain members of IK have tried hard to turn every subject into a political debate. Many members are complaining about their thread being locked because some members brought politics in to it. From now on we will not close these threads, instead we will ban members who deviate the original topic in to a political one.

For example: Recently a thread about London bombing was closed. The actual thread is considered a news article which is not related to Iranian politics in nature. However; few members diverted the topic and brought Iranian politics in to it which forced me to close it.

This is no longer acceptable.

1- Political and religious topics are banned since they will divide the members and leads to personal insults.

2- Definition of Politics and Religion

Definition of Religion: All religions that exist or existed in Today's Iran.

Definition of Politics: Politics relating to Iran and Iranian people.

Members are not allowed to post religious or political topics. Members are not allowed to engage in any political or religious discussions. Members are not allowed to promote their religious or political ideologies. Members are not allowed to post links to political or religious websites. Members are not allowed to defame or insult another religion. Members are not allowed to insult another political group.

You are allowed to post religious celebration and greetings such as Christmas.


You cannot discuss any major religion such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.
You cannot post link to a political group website.
You cannot post news related to religion or Politics.
You can discuss politics or religious news that do not relate to today's Iran.

1- News must be full from a reputable news agency.
2- After news article is posted, one of the mods will lock the thread.
3- Opening a separate thread to discuss the news article is not allowed. (you will be yellow carded for doing so)

Thank you for your co-operation.
