Rhetorus!: A Forum For the Rest Of Us http://www.rhetorus.net Rhetorus.net or "Rhetorus" was created as a joint venture by myself and Scotsman (from the Phora) in order to provide a sanctuary for those that wish to have a mature and enjoyable experience in a discussion forum. Membership is now open to the public, and features the most up-to-date version of Xenforo and a clean, consistently optimized database. Plus, it's safe for work! Our Mission It is the aim of the owners and operators of Rhetorus.net to provide a clean, friendly, and useable haven for mature, intellectual, stimulating, and fun discussion of all topics. We will not discriminate based on any factor, so long as the member proves they are capable of providing the same level of maturity expected by everyone else. We intend to keep the website and forum in consistently workable condition, and to allow use of many social features. We promise to our users that we will maintain up-to-date software and regularly optimize everything. Staff will treat all members with respect and courtesy, and will not allow bias or dislike of any one member to create an unpleasant experience for the member. Staff will make every effort to keep all membership up-to-date on the state of the website, plans for the future, and any changes, fixes, additions, etc., that are made. We will hold regular staff meetings, and will post minutes of the meetings for members to review and discuss. We will ensure every attempt is made to discourage and prevent trollish, childish, and otherwise unwanted behavior that detracts from the purpose of this forum.
