Now that we have a code of conduct in place, we need a way to enforce this.  To this end, the shura has decided to introduce discretionary temporary suspensions.  What this means is that anyone, muslim or non muslim, can be suspended from the forum for a short period of time at the discretion of the shura.

For muslims, anyone may be suspended for breaking the Code of Conduct.  Since non muslims are guests on this forum rather than hosts, we do not have a Code of Conduct for them, but in general we expect a certain level of manners from them.  Non muslims may be suspended, for example, for stating something in an offensive way when the same thing could be stated in a non offensive way.

No-one is exempt from the possibility of being suspended.    New members, senior members, muslims, non muslims, moderators, even shura members.  This may mean that a lot of us have to start curbing ourselves, but Inshallah overall this will be for the better of the forum.

These new rules have been put in place to make this forum a more peaceful place fro everyone, muslim and non muslim.  Again, please feel free to PM me or any of the other shura members if you have any questions or comments about this new policy.
May Allah give me patience, Ameen.
