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.

    Is this guy's opponent just looking for a campaign issue and highlighting a little-known wrinkle, or do people know about this mostly already?

        Not a lot of people knew about it until some advocacy group found out about it and started making waves. Some county governments did know about it though because it was adressed and yhe loophole closed in a few places.

        • Will be interesting to see how fast the loopholes close. Or if voters don't care.

          • I think they will. It's a known issue now.

                        Unless Washington & Westmoreland change their minds about waiting...I kinda chuckled when I heard the Washington County guy say they didn't have the manpower to count the remaining 1,000 votes and would have to wait till morning

                        I mean, it's Election Night, guys, lol

                            Washington County guy is back on CNN and they're counting tonight. Dunno about Westmoreland

                            Most of the election accounts I follow on twitter think Lamb will end up ahead by at least a few hundred votes, which is hard to overcome in a recount. The 2 outstanding precinct in Westmoreland are more Dem-favorable than most of the county. Saccone's margin in absentees would need to be nearly double the margin he won by in in-person voting.
