Welcome to the Hot Topics Zone, the place for debate and discussion of the hot topics of the day. The board is for debate and discussion of hot topics in the news ranging from politics to entertainment to popular culture. Threads will be moved from there to other boards fairly frequently -- once the thread is moved, the regular ROC apply on the board where it is relocated. I hope you all will jump in and enjoy.


Your hosts:


Stardove


Cesmom


Girlchristian


Merope

Please introduce yourself in this thread.

Stardove here (there and everywhere).  I'm been hosting on Beliefnet since 1999 or 2000.  Lost count when we change formats in 2007.  I also host Aging Gracefully (50+),  Angels, Spirit Guides, Discuss Spirit Guides and Angels, Progress Christians, Discuss Progressive Christianity, Spiritualism, Discuss Esoteric Practices, and co-host Middle East New & Politics.  I also have two groups Aging Gracefully (private) and Stardove's Wonder (public) where I am the group leader. 


Cheryl has put a lot of effort into giving members this new Hot topics Zone, so I hope you will enjoy it.  Laughing

Ooh, I like it! That whole thing about being HOT, I mean...


Agnosticspirit another friendly host checking in... Ooh, do these new local guidelines mean we're a little more free to INSULT each other? That'll make a lot of peoples happy... It'll make ME happy 'cause I'll have less to do... In fact, I'll just hang out by the pool and sip a tall glass of iced tea while the slugfest goes on... Laughing


Let's see.... short bio.... Live in SoCal... Politically and philosophically independent ANTI-authoritarian free market environmentalist non-theist chick on the wrong side of forty. Or the right side, if that wisdom thing someday kicks in....


Joined Bnet in March 2008. Started hosting Discuss Islam, Addictions & Recovery forums last July.... Joined my fine co-host on Discuss Atheism a few months later, and most recently joined the UBER-awesome rockin' and rollin' hosting team on USNP....

Being that this forum is going to be regulated very diffently, I hope the moderators will allow slip-ups every now and again - possibly editing contents of posts of of those who come here where necessary until the boundaries are clear.  I see myself trying to keep my ad homs still down to a minimum although I am guessing that they will be allowed to a certain degree?

LS... one thing hosts will NOT be doing is editing member's posts... At least that's what I've been made to understand.... I'll ask Cheryl to take a peek at this post and chime in, however.


From what I understand... As long as site wide rules are adhered to... in this forum... hosts are expected to adopt a LESS is MORE policy. :) And as we all feel our way around, leniency would probably be more appropriate.

We won't be editing posts here unless it is absolutely necessary -- like if someone posts personal contact info or something like that.


Welcome, everyone! :-)
