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.

    • I am probably going to regret asking but here goes....

      Okay, Krapture what is your solution to the gun issue?

      Do you want to arm teachers?
      Get rid of gun free zones?
      Should there be limits on what a citizen can purchase in regards to guns and ammo?
      Should the minimum age limit be raised to purchase guns and ammo?
      Should all the loopholes be closed in background checks?
      At what point should a person be rejected on the background check?

      Should there be more funding more mental health and along those lines should the feds provide funding so there are mental health places for those that just are not in their right minds to stay?

      What measures should be done (if any) to harden schools and would the feds provide funding for such measures?

              I've answered these several pages ago.

              • I thought this was a very interesting read re US-Russian clash in Syria: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/...ation-serious/

                I hadn't really heard about it, so the opening line really rang true for me:

                One of the interesting aspects of the Trump era is the extent to which our political culture is obsessing over marginalia while truly significant events transpire largely out of sight and out of mind.
                The "battle" itself is interesting in the details, in particular that an oligarch allegedly pushed for and received approval to use Russian mercenaries (and Syrians) for the attack.

                In any event, I didn't know the first thing about it, but I do know that Kushner's clearance got pushed back, that an AA US bobsledder was hate-barraged on twitter into removing a photo of her and Ivanka, Sessions and PDJT are feuding, some pretentious Yale a capella group is letting in a women(!) and if we could could ban semi-automatic rifles we'd stop 250 murders per year assuming no one who would commit murder would break the law to get their hands on one and that the murderers are dead set on using semi-automatic rifles only.

                What a time to be alive! I need to order another dozen Preston Brooks Canes of Justice.

                          There are two points here that are instructive:

                          First, the media sucks ..... oh, I already said that but qualified that characterization to only those unwilling to seek out the facts from all available resources. I worry, over the long term, of decreasing access to those resources or to increasing coverage of shit stories that drown out the important ones.

                          Second, Moscow has boots on the ground in Syria. That enables, along with Russia's extensive National Overhead resources, the ability to develop excellent battlefield or tactical intell. That would mean specific information on US troop strength, aviation, artillery and logistical capabilities.

                          That some Russian Oligarch got top level Russian approval to launch this attack seems to me to be a stretch. Attacking a heavily fortified force that has equally good intell, artillery and aviation support was fucking stupid ..... Putin is not stupid. I don't believe for one minute this was more than a poorly prepared militia of some sort, made up of Syrian, Russian mercenaries, whatever personnel, embarking upon a really stupid mission. Whoever it was got their asses kicked physically by US forces and I have no doubt in other ways by Putin or his Generals.

                          The larger point the author makes is vitally important though. I've posted that I consider Trump dangerous internationally. Fortunately, he's got some very smart Flag Rank officers around him at the highest levels who can tap in to some of the best brains in the military within their own services. That doesn't mean Trump can't find some way to ignore advice he's getting and do something really stupid. Given his unfitness to serve as the CINC, that should scare the shit out of every one here.

                            This is a good read on Italy and the battles going on around immigration, progressives, conservatives, trust and a nation trying to keep its identity.

                              • Thanks for the read, Entropy, on Italy. Politically, racially, fiscally -- that place is near the bottom of Europe and that's really saying something. Still, great place to visit!
