I, too, without a doubt.

I believe it is important to enforce standards of civility and accountability as high, if not higher than DNA-forums. DNA-forums standards were higher than most other forums of this type, and it is important to maintain that standard.

I think you're right!

Could you explain in details, please?

I can summarize, although former moderators can state the rules more directly.

1. No personal or defamatory attacks
2. No discussion of politics or religion
3. No advocacy of agendas that reflect prejudice toward specific ethnic groups

The policies have probably been duplicated on http://www.dna-forum.net/

If you guys create a Scandinavian forum section i could moderate that since i can understand all these languages, being a native speaker and all...
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

At the moment, I don't think they've posted the rules at the new site. R1a1a knew them since he was moderator at DNA-forums. I'll email him perhaps.

While I have not been a moderator in the past, I would be willing to serve as a moderator for R1b-L48 (and possibly even its parent, R1b-U106) if it is felt advantageous. I can imagine that if this community becomes anywhere near as active as DNA-Forums had, R1a1 possibly could use some assistance with this large clade.
