Based on Static Line's good post, I was motivated to create this pact. By selecting "I am signing this pact", you are agreeing to 1) ignore trolls who seek to irritate everyone in this forum through insult of the DO degree, 2) simply direct legitimately confused individuals to the FAQs, or 3) type nothing or "troll" and/or report the post to the moderator. The posts have gotten progressively negative on SDN and it is largely due to a rash of disguised MD/DO threads. Frankly, I've become increasingly bitter about reading the pre-osteo forum b/c of these. This is an attempt to stem these threads. Failure to adhere to the pact will result in public humiliation.
