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 Supreme Court decision on the Minnesota shirt law was somewhat narrow. It was mostly decided on vagueness grounds -- need to be specific.

    Color me SHOCKED that the NY AG is suing PDJT.
    Sarcasm aside, do you think the AG should not be pursuing this? They have a handwritten note from Trump ordering the charity to pay settlement for a personal legal feud. They have emails from Corey Lewandowski with instructions on how to direct Foundation funds to campaign events in Iowa.

      It also says that there's no proof that he acted out of political bias. And every breach of protocol he made worked to Trump's advantage, not his detriment.
      what does it say about his top agent conspiring to commit treason?

      • Comey was using a personal email account while investigating Hillary for using a personal email account??? Can't make this shit up!

          • DSL:

            I don't know what the substance of the case is. The fact that the NY AG filed it does not mean it lacks merit. What I think, for certain, is that this isn't a "good government" case, but rather it is politically motivated. It may be a happy coincidence that it's substantively viable. I dunno. But I feel almost certain that this case doesn't get brought against, e.g., the Clinton Foundation. This particular AG office has shown a real capacity for politically motivated actions including issuing preposterous subpoenas to energy companies on climate change.

            I also feel almost certain that if this foundation were in Georgia there'd be no such case.

            AG offices are, fundamentally, political. There are a lot of nuts and bolts shit that gets done no matter who is in charge, but if you want to make a name you need a big cause. It's why, IMO, some AGs sued re Obamacare.

            So, you know, "PDJT Derangement" aside, I think you're able to acknowledge the the NY AG just might have some political motivation on this one.

                        • "All AG offices are political, but what I find notable in this specific case is that this particular AG office is political." If I have it right?

                          • All AG offices are political and will file politically-motivated cases. NY is no different as evidenced by its past actions.
