Special Considerations and Warnings

If you’re easily offended by ideas you disagree with, this event probably isn't for you.
That being said, we attack ideas - not people - in this group. Don't call people morons just because they disagree with you. Don't even do it if they say something moronic. We want to encourage people to grow in their ability to reason, not shame them into silence.
