The Member Guidelines thread (https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=10395.new#new) has been updated with the following:

Iron Heart is an international brand, and this forum also has a global reach. We are proud of that. For the forum to be a pleasant, inclusive place, where people from all over the world can come to discuss the brand, denim and other interests, we have always had guidelines that ask our users to refrain from posting comments likely to cause unnecessary conflict or create a negative environment. This includes posting about themes like politics, religion and other controversial issues. Our opinion is that there are other places on the internet for this kind of discussion. In addition, the hostility and ugliness often found in comment sections around the internet is not something we need or want here.

Unfortunately, there has recently been an increase in this kind of posting. This has begun to include posting of clothing or other artefacts showing support for different political groups or ideologies. We do not want to act as censor for our member’s posts, but we will not be able to tolerate people promoting their political ideologies in this way any longer, for the reasons described above.

For the record, the forum and the brand believe in equality for all people, regardless of gender, race, sexuality or nationality. As such, we take an especially dim view of overtly nationalistic, fascist, or intolerant, groups, ideologies or viewpoints being promoted here. As a general rule though we would like all users to refrain from posting any direct or implied political content.

Thanks for reading.


The Mod Squad and Stubborn Crew.

Was on a forum 10 years ago and they had a very strict no politics, religion and other controversial issues policy . If you want to argue that subject there are tons of other forums solely dedicated to that subject was their mantra .

It certainly kept the pleasant decorum and once in awhile someone would get banned .

cheers
