Welcome to Life, The Universe, and Politics!

Life, The Universe, and Politics (LTUP) is a place for modelers to discuss non-modeling subjects.

RC Groups is first and foremost a place to discuss the hobby of Radio Control, therefore RC Groups forum software automatically enforces a 5:1 posting ratio in the LTUP forum. This means that for every 5 posts a user makes in LTUP, they will be required to make at least one post in the RC forums.

New users get 5 free posts to the LTUP forum before the post ratio will take effect. The system will automatically notify you when you have reached your ratio limit and will not allow you to post to the LTUP forum more than five times in a row.

New (and long term) participants in LTUP are advised to read the RC Groups Rules, also linked at the bottom of each forum page.

Forum Language
RC Groups' standards are not based on current TV broadcast standards. Language that may be acceptable in some social circles isn't acceptable here.

Automatic filters are in place to remove clearly unacceptable language before it's posted. Other words that do not trigger the filter may still be a violation depending on the context. One practice that some may have mistakenly assumed to be acceptable is to substitute other letters or characters ($&#, etc.) either to bypass the automatic filters, or to self-moderate the word(s). If the intended word is apparent and violates the site rules, it will draw the same warning.

It isn't possible to list all examples of questionable material, so if you choose to constantly test the line, be prepared to receive an occasional warning.

We have changed the posting ratio for this forum to 5:1 (offtopic:on-topic posts). This post explains the reasoning behind the change.
