This thread has a long history of collegial discussion of Qualcomm and its place in the wireless industry. While disagreements are fierce, we have been able to keep the discussion focused and generally civil. These rules are intended to try and continue those traditions.

This is a discussion forum, not a chat room. These rules have been in place since '01 and have served us well, however I am tacking on a new explicit rule concerning political discussions.


First and foremost, use common sense when posting. We have a long history to draw on and most should have a good idea as to what is considered on-topic and times when there might be a small amount of leeway. That leeway does not apply to politics.

No political rants/slams or even value judgments. The political discussion which is allowed is the impact of specific policy proposals on Qualcomm. For example, the IMPACT of changes to the H1B visa program is fair game, but I do not want discussions on whether increased immigration is a good or bad policy idea.

No cheerleading, stock quotes, or discussions of short-term price movements or your own holdings.

No off topic posts.

No flaming.

Please use discretion when linking or posting articles that are only marginally related to Qualcomm.

Please ignore IQ challenged posters.

Consider PM's when making posts of little value to the larger thread.


Posts that violate the above rules will be met with a warning and the 2nd offense will earn a ban of varying length. Unfortunately, I know it is impossible to make everybody happy, but I believe that the above rules will allow us to continue the valuable types of discussions that we have had for so long on this thread.
