If you should find yourself in #MajorityReport surrounded by Hannity clones and with nary an op in sight, you can contact leftnut or EmeliusBrowne via email. We'll organize a posse at the nearest opportunity.
P.S. ops: If you'd like to be added to the emergency contact list, contact me. email@example.com forwarding addresses are available for the spam-wary.

Annotating Web Links
As a courtesy to channel goers and the hard-working moderators at our content blog, please be sure to annotate any links you post in #MajorityReport with a minimal description of what you're linking to. For instance, rather than pasting a naked link:
on a line all by itself, mark it with a brief phrase:
leftnut> Federal judge rules partial-birth abortion ban unconstitutional: http://www.salon.com/news/wire/2004/06/01/ban_unconstitutional/index.html
Even if the subject can be partly inferred from the link, it's less likely to draw the notice of users or the blog moderators without a description. This is especially true for garbled links (http://quote.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000102&sid=aSRAXJBOQmkk) and shortened links (http://www.tinyurl.com/ysuqx) that don't suggest any context by themselves.
If your link points to a news article, its headline is frequently suitable as a description. If it's to a blog thread, start with the name of the blog plus the thread's topic. Links to static webpages may be marked up with the page's title if it is sufficiently descriptive.
See the blog for examples of good link descriptions.
Note: Once you've annotated your link in a descriptive and interesting way, there isn't a need to post excerpts of the article or page to the channel. Please refrain from flooding!

The #MajorityReport ops encourage free discussion and try hard not to stifle free expression. However, the following behaviors are unacceptable and will result in a response from the ops:
- Personal attacks on channel users.
- EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF YELLING.
- Excessive repetition, especially of a useless comment, or other forms of channel monopolization.
- Obvious trolling (i.e., insincere statements intended to inflame).
- Relentless and obnoxious pursuit of fallacious arguments (see here to brush up).
- Stalking and/or harassment.
Ops have substantial discretion to interpret these rules; please do not appeal to technicalities. Just remember, mutual respect is the key to a happy channel.

Please make sure you fill out your profile with a valid email address. If for some reason you are needed, this email will be used. Invites are coming to bring OPs in as posters to Majority Report Blog in the coming days. Majority Report Blog will be a great place to elaborate on things outside of the IRC Channel. Please visit the site and see the wonderful work already being done.
