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.

    Some of this was inevitable given how much money Netflix is making, but the long-term effects that this content-splintering will have on pricing is concerning IMO. People complain about their cable bill now and want ala carte...but that's not the direction its headed. Instead your current content is going to be split into separate streams for $10-$20/mo each.

    And then the cable companies will transfer their fading profit margin on TV packages to their ISP divisions, and move to by-MB usage fee.
    Yeah, it's a shame. There's a new Star Trek series coming out and it's supposedly only available on CBS' internet pay platform.

    • I saw that...I didn't even know CBS had such a platform.

      Seems like a desperate gamble, and unfortunate. Maybe Netflix will buy it.

              • it is indeed. This is the inevitable outcome of Democrat rule. The productive elements of society simply move to another state. This could well have been Michigan had not Detroit dropped below one million in population.

                  • Many parts of rural Illinois are losing population far faster than the city of Chicago is.

                          Yeah it is really doomed. Just walk around the city of Chicago and you'll see, it has some of "those people".
