Recently there has been an increase in political and religious discussion on the site forum. As this is an English language site, UsingEnglish ask that members refrain from posting these sorts of topics.

The forum has a private members area where folders for general chat can take place, but that does not mean that any topic of conversation is acceptable. The very fact that people come to our forum for help from all over the world means that political and religious topics can cause a great deal of offense in some cases.

As a member, you have agreed to abide by the rules of this forum, which specifically address this issue and ask that no political or religious topics are discussed.

Please respect the rules of this forum.

Your understanding will be appreciated.
