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.

  • After reading accounts and tweets from the likes of the NYT, WaPo and Newseek, my eyes are considerably more open. I knew the white supremacists were fucks. I had no idea how violent the anti-fa fucks are and were. Woof.

    Personally, I'd be fine if the two groups fought to the death and we then jailed the survivors.

    • Why would Trump be more forceful? that's part of his coalition. They were marching through Charlottesville with big guns and shields chanting, "N*****s go back to Africa." He's much more forceful in his comments towards the Merck CEO withdrawing from his CEO council. I'll give you one guess on the color of Ken Frazier's skin.

          Trump still hasn't denounced white supremacists or Nazis specifically but yeah, he attacks the CEO of Merck almost instantaneously for withdrawing from his council. Nicely done.

          And anyone who thinks I'm being partisan, nearly the entire Republican Party is willing to go on record as condemning the weekend's Nazi Rally. Except Trump. People like Newt Gingrich and Chris Christie are criticizing him. If even THEY think it's fair game, then it's fair game for anyone to do so.

          EDIT: The Merck CEO also cited Trump's bad response as the reason he quit, apparently. No wonder The Donald is pissed.

          • Peter Beinhart actually wrote about the rise of antifa for the September issue of The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine...t-left/534192/

            As I said, let them fight a pitched battle. I say hold it in Ogallala.

                  Hmmm. The inference being it's like playing Notre Dame? Sure, it's destable to throw bags of urine at people or otherwise curse and threaten them, but if you're playing the Domers and you're talking about Domer fans as "people" then the calculus changes?

                    There are always those who deserve what's coming to them. I lean more towards Colorado fans, but that's from my personal experience.

                      • Quality post, but with no Rickart, RU4FSU91 or Van Nostron around the sass wafts into the ether.

                        As a side note, Mrs. Hoss must be seeing someone with at least an average IQ on the side. Not sure if it's by choice or happenstance -- sooner or later a non-idiot would surely be enticed by low cost of Bob Evans breakfast.

                          We can be satisfied in the knowledge that it would upset them.
