Board Rules

The Loose Change Forums are a place for the intelligent, respectful exchange of ideas.

Certain theories perceived as extreme and divisive will be moderated at the discretion of the administration.

This is a privately owned forum and the administration reserves the right to restrict the participation of any user that is deemed disruptive for any reason.

The views and opinions expressed on these forums does not necessarily represent the views and opinions of Loose Change and Louder Than Words LLC.

Forum members are to consider the potential for copyright violation of any material they post here. Material found to be infringing any copyright will be removed.

Also, if you are a self-professed "skeptic", please note the following arguments will be either ignored or erased, as they have no merit:

  • "too many people would be involved, so your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "all the people involved must be paid off, so your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "you guys are still alive, so your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "our government is too dumb to pull this off, so your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "our government would NEVER do this, so your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "screw you guys, your conspiracy is bogus"
  • "you guys are all in this for the money"
  • "you guys are all Bush bashers"
  • "you guys are all Liberals"
  • "you guys are all nuts"

On a final note, NPT theories, and support of movies like September Clues, is not allowed in any way. Planes hit the WTC. We refuse to allow that to be disputed on this forum.

Please post topics in their correct forums. This makes it easier for the admin staff to keep the place organized.

No Tolerance of Personal Attacks

Due to the increased debate on the issue of what happened at the Pentagon, any personal insults, attacks, threats, etc, will be dealt with strictly. There will be absolutely no tolerance of personal attacks, name-calling, mocking, or insults on Pilots For 911 Truth(P4T), Citizen Investigation Team, the individuals who represent those organizations, and the same respect will also be shown to those who disagree with the aforementioned organizations. There will also be absolutely no tolerance of accusations of “disinfo” against members of our forums. Trolls, NPTers, and troublemakers are dealt with as strictly as possible and WE will take care of punishing them. If you feel a post warrants the attention of the LC administration, click the “REPORT” button of the post you’d like to bring to our attention. We all have a common goal here of finding out what really happened on 9/11 and we all need to work together to reach that goal. If you’re so confident that you know the specifics of what really happened and that your research is correct, exude a little confidence in your ideas and resist the urge to post something specifically designed to elicit an emotional response from those who disagree with you. This is not the Jerry Springer Show. Childish mudslinging, name-calling, and personal attacks, as we’ve all seen in the past, do nothing but ruin our credibility as legitimate researchers and divide the movement. We’re not all going to agree, so let’s be mature about it when it happens.


[Edited by look-up to append non-violence policy]
No Tolerance of members advocating violence

The Loose Change Forum has always advocated non-violence. However, due to increasing concern that 9/11 Truth activists will be targeted in a campaign to illegitimize the message of our movement and to establish a basis to avoid legal responsibility for violent comments on this forum, we have decided it is best to specifically outline our non-violence policy.

Loose Change Forum will not tolerate posts or members that advocate violence or non-peaceful behavior towards anyone or any institution.

The outright declaration of violence could result in an immediate ban. Lesser offenses will be moderated per administrative discretion - including warnings and suspensions. In some cases posts will be removed altogether.

We believe in the principles which recent generations largely attribute to Mahandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the greatest civil rights activists of the 20th century.

Let these quotations from those great men guide our decisions to act.

Quote:
 
"Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time: the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to oppression and violence. Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."
-Martin Luther King, Jr., Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Stockholm, Sweden, December 11, 1964.

"The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility."
-Martin Luther King, Jr., The Trumpet of Conscience, 1967.

"Non-violence and truth are inseparable and presuppose one another."
-Gandhi
