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.

    • Love this on Kamala Harris: http://www.nationalreview.com/articl...rican-politics

      But there’s no question that on the strength of these hearings, she can lay claim to a style that is the future of American politics: Her combination of incivility, bullying, and victimhood makes her the perfect reflection of our current moment.

      • The future? Did they forget the tweeter-in-chief?

        • I think they're still hoping it's all a bad dream. From an article today:

          President Donald Trump is an irresponsible demagogue who ought never have been elected to the office he holds — but he was, legitimately, fair and square, your favorite Muscovite conspiracy theory notwithstanding.
          Your boy Williamson still HATES DJT. Heh.

          • Death by little bits of incoherent nonsense. They either don't have editors over there, or they don't think much of their readers.

            • Talent. I'm surprised Ms Harris's questioning has you clutching your pearls. It was tough, but it was perfectly acceptable and commonplace. What was your issue with it?

              • I don't have any problem with it, SLF. However, if someone wants to be critical of her interrupting witnesses and not letting them finish they ought not face charges of sexism, racism, mansplaining or whatever else.

                She's a big girl. If she wants to be aggressive her defenders ought not snowflake out.

                • They should give these Senators more time to ask questions if they don't like interruptions.

                  Comment


                  • So Her combination of incivility, bullying, and victimhood makes her the perfect reflection of our current moment is something Talent finds very true and completely unproblematic.

                      Lots of Senators over the course of time have been uncivil and aggressive and told to let the witness finish. Ms. Harris, however, gets the NYT to talk about "Men Interrupting Women" and then fund-raise by so dramatically promising: "The women of the United States Senate will not be silenced when seeking the truth."

                      It's the brilliant Prog Double Standard. Harris can be as hostile as she wants to be, but if anyone comes at here, they're racists/sexist/some -ist. It's the Prog way of avoiding debate. Tried and true, really.

                        Was Trump implying Castro's scared of Trump?? Raul Castro announced he would step down after his final 'term' back in 2013. Also, he's 86

                          If you say so, I didn't find it to be all that hostile though.

                          • Talent doesn't think it's a problem though. So he thought it was worth bringing up here for discussion.

                            Comment


                            • I agree. Sessions wasn't answering her questions and she demanded he did. I thought Markely was much much worse and didn't get shushed.

                              I don't like to attribute motivations to people and won't here. I do find it odd that women are treated differently than men, like Markley and Harris were treated differently. There are a number of reasons for that I imagine, but it's pretty undeniable to me. I am also pretty certain that you don't see that. I don't blame you, but I would ask you to ask yourself, why professional women almost universally experience this as true if it is not?

                              • Former Trump spokesman called her hysterical on CNN, the questions were definitely not hysterical.
