Admin guidance on how we address POTUS

All-

We are going to modify this rule a bit. We will allow you to refer to the POTUS by last name only.

Do not misunderstand. We are doing this because it is common to use the last name in discussion without being disrespectful. If you are being intentionally disrespectful, you will be appropriately dealt with by the Moderator or Admin staff. So the same intent still applies. YOU WILL respect the office, whether you respect the man who is in it or not. It is possible to debate without denigrating the office of our POTUS. Stay professional and you won't have a problem.
