    Exclamation NOTICE: What an OP ED is and what it is NOT

    Op Ed is the only section with specific posting criteria.


    An op ed (for the purpose of THIS forum) is an opinion piece written by you or a published columnist.


    It is not

    a rant
    a joke
    a youtube
    a news story
    a current event
    an op ed cut down (the entire piece should be posted with the by-line and the date published).


    It's an opinion piece written by YOU or a journalist. It has a premise and a resolution. If you cannot determine with surety, that something is an OP ED, don't put it in this section. Don't PM me to ask either.

    Thanks.

    PS: Absolutely NO youtubes may be posted in OP ED.

    Any threads posted wrongly in op ed will be closed and moved at staff discretion.

    All members see the notice above.

    I'm finding about 9 out of 10 threads here are not OPs.

    Members please note the addition to criteria in the OP.

    It specifies that an Op Ed should be posted in its entirety with paragraphs and proper formatting WITH the author's name (by-line) and the date published. Put the link at the end.
    If YOU wrote the piece, no notations are necessary.
    Thank you.

    I probably moved 8 threads just now. News articles aren't op ed. Youtubes are not op ed. Folks, what does it take to get the message?

    PLEASE !!!


    An Op Ed is not a video
    Not a rant.
    Not a news article.
    Not a link.


    I rarely complain, but please follow the guidelines on this one forum. It takes a lot of time to move them. If not sure, put a thread in another forum. Please help me.

    Thank you.
    Stupid games, stupid prizes.

    The system isn't the prison, you are; to all of us.
    We can't fix you, we can't get rid of you!
    You're just a drag on the fucking system. .......
