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.

  • The Kelly stuff is looking increasingly silly, too. They investigated him for preposterous Logan Act shit, and when they finished interviewing him the agents thought he was being truthful. His statements ended up being not entirely consistent with the record, so PERJURY!

    But the underlying "criminal" act remains preposterous. To wit: John Kerry meets with the Iranian Foreign Minister in a direct effort to preserve the Iran-US Deal -- https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nat...CUL/story.html

    John Kerry is a private citizen. The foreign minister of Iran is an agent of a foreign government. LOGAN ACT!!!!!! And, btw, this shit is way more substantive than the nothing conversation Flynn had with the Russian ambassador (as part of the the fucking transition). So, the FBI asks about shit which is ain't ever been considered illegal and drums up a perjury charge.

      speaking of the Logan Act, 0's State Department spokesman was asked about the transition's contacts with foreign governments back in Jan 2017 and they were fine with it... because that is standard protocol.

      • Fwiw, I think what Kerry did was also wrong.

        • Sure, it's "wrong"-- but it's not criminal. Or it ought not be.

              with the Russians Mueller basically has to show his hand and doesn't want to do it

              the two attorneys for concord management are entitled to access to muellers case
              his strategy is not working--he cannot connect the dots to get to the trump
              the manafort strategy and the Kelly strategy to try to get them to sing must be failing too.






              ......


              I guess we'll see. Most of the legal experts I've seen commenting on this don't think the Judge will actually end up dismissing the charges.

                    • President Douche Bag is at it again, sniveling and whining about "13 angry democrats". If Mueller had Trumpanzees on staff that were willing and able to sweep under the rug any criminal activity uncovered, somehow justice would be served? Perhaps his oh-so-bright legal team should inform the Shithead-In-Chief that the DOJ is specifically prohibited from considering political affiliation when hiring.

                      And where was the outrage about leakers when Chump's staff leaked the 49 questions to the NYT that Mueller provided his attorneys? Where's the 'lock them up' chant? I guess leaking is okay if you're trying to defend the lying, amoral, ethically bankrupt, corrupt, narcissistic, dishonorable, egotistical, POS aka Donald "J is for Jenius" Trump.
