Welcome to the board,

Feel free to post book reviews, or just discuss the books you've read. Better yet, leave a post or two on the kind of books you'd like to read, but that no-one seems to have written yet. You never know who might read this. Smile

Please try to keep the topic to something that's at least vaguely space fiction or non-fiction book related, and make sure there isn't a more appropriate forum elsewhere at Out of the Cradle. (Anything related to space in the real world should go into the Hangar, for instance).

There are a few rules, but nothing draconian - the intent is to ensure a level of courtesy, so that we can get on with discussing the interesting stuff, rather than wading through the flame wars.

Anyway, the rules:
- No flame wars. Posts with more heat than light will be moved to the Engine Test Stand - it has a nice deep flame trench, and you are more than welcome to continue your flame wars there - but I'd like to think you had better things to do.

- Keep it civil. Argue the position, not the person. You can vehemently disagree with Ethel's belief in flying the space shuttle to the moon using the warp drive from the Roswell saucer *without* resorting to calling her a stinky poo-poo.

- No profanity. Swearwords, and pseudo-swearwords made by substituting certain letters with @#^% or whatever, will be edited out.

- Don't tell other people what they think. Unless you can read minds, you're wasting your time. And probably even then. If you find yourself telling Bob for the third time that *HE's* the one who thinks VTHL will never work - don't.

- Do not post anything with the intent of starting an argument or creating discord. You might suddenly find that you can only post in the Engine Test Stand, and I expect it's going to be uncomfortably hot in there.

- No Spam. <Tortured shudder of disgust> I hate spam.

There's probably more, but I'd like to think all of this is common sense anyway, so use your own good judgement.

Thanks for taking the time to read all of that - and welcome to Out of the Cradle!

Regards,
Rob.
