We have just added a new blog feature to the forum. Everyone, including guests, are able to view blogs, but only those contributing to the forum are able to create a blog. In other words, if you have the contributor graphic, you also have permission to build a blog here.

So everyone knows up front, forum rules apply to this area as they do in the forum itself, although we will allow more latitude regarding political related comments. As an advanced warning, anyone using a blog to flame another member, this forum (or another forum) in a blog entry will have the blog itself, as well as your permissions to view other blogs, permanently removed. Blog entries are not required to be "on topic", but any racist or obscene entries will not be tolerated.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
