FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

  • This reminds me of 1951 or 52 when our AA fraternity broke the "ethnic barrier" and pledged our first Jewish guy, and he was fabulous. We also started a tradfition of having an annual joint partiy with a prominent Jewish fraternity in town. It was a precedent in those days and was a very positive development.

    We're more than half a century ahead of those southern schools.

    • I can speak with authority on this subject.

      Racism, social ostracism of non-Baptists and notions of the Confederacy are alive and well in the South

      • The south isn't the only place with regional quirks. Go to Quebec some time. Or on a micro-scale, Secacus New Jersey.

                              • Hack, you never did fully explain yourself, not to my satisfaction anyway.

                                A few weeks ago and probably after way too many wine spritzers you had mentioned in great detail that the “gay force” runs particularly strong in your family. What, a gay uncle, two cousins and your brother too? Obviously your pink Midi-Chlorian count is off the scale!

                                Anyway, also you did mention that you had a gay roommate while at college, named “Jeff”, apparently unbeknownst to you and I guess and you guys remain good friends today?

                                I must say the same damn thing happened to Manti Te'o, would it be safe to say you both were “Fruit Duped”?
