I'd be a little concerned about that too. People are really quick on here to label some groups terrorists, even if they haven't even killed anyone or even caused any terror.

Although based on past rule changes and how they effect the forum, I'm not too worried.

Yeah, you don't have to worry.

Good point.  For example it is hard to know which side are the terrorists in Yemen.

Then, we might apply the rule to both sides.

Believe me, guys. It's going to be easier for us than you might think. I don't think I've ever lost a game of "spot the terrorist recruiter."

I hope promoting the causes of the terrorists is not confused with promoting terrorism. Terrorism can be perpetrated to advance or in the name of an otherwise meritorious cause. If the cause has the substance and justification to stand alone, then terrorism committed on its behalf neither enoble terrorism nor detract from the merit of the cause.

If I create a post asking for like-minded individuals with certain skills, that's not strictly promotinvg terrorism is it?

Asking for a friend.

Seriously though inhabitants of Trumpland may want to be wary of being associated with anything that could be redefined as terrorism in a near future McCarthy witch hunt environment.

No more Star Wars talk!
Unless you want to praise the Empire!

Because it may lead to real terrorism!

RE: New Rule - Promoting Terrorism
Do we have a clear definition of what 'terrorism' is?

Nowadays it's pretty subjective.
