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.

  • Being pro-Brexit isn't grift, but its loudest backer is a grifter. Voters failed to check his math or figure out whether the guy was an actual public servant or something else.

    I didn't equate the Korea lies with grift tho perhaps a different term could help capture the wider phenomenon.

      • Ha! This was a decent thread until he turned it into an Alt Right Facebook page with his moronic memes and Alt-right talking points. He is nothing more than a clown and troll. When one of his first posts in the thread gleefully bragged about how using a 0 to spell Obama "tiggered" the libtards, it was pretty obvious what he was about. Bring up Hillary and Obama whataboutism? Get the chicken game or something just as inane Both are stupid.

        Is it an Act? To a point. The same as #gentryprogs? You tell me.

        I voted for Republican candidates for President longer than Krapture has been alive, but over the past 10-15 years, the Republican party left me. It may have been as they embraced the Christian Taliban or when they choose that fucking moron Sarah Palin as VP candidate, but the seeds were planted well before that. I still might have voted for John Kasich for pres over Hillary. Nobody knows, though, because the Orange Moron Kaptured (see what I did there?) the feeble minds of the enough of the masses to hijack our democracy

        Trump? The biggest threat to our democracy (I know, Democratic Republic) in our lifetimes. A bigger threat than the antiwar movement and the racial unrest of the 60s. As Ghengis Jon pointed out, FDT's tactics are pretty transparent, if you are not blinded by ideology.

        Too bad we can't go back to the days of semi-coherent, well thought out discusion. Or can we...

          Even for you, that has to be one of the most incredibly stupid things you've ever uttered. Most media (including the largest media outlet - Fox) is owned by conservative conglomerates and businesses, whether it be Disney, Murdoch, or a raft of others. Those are left leaning groups, right? Bunch of goddam libruls right? Here's a news flash, Ace, media owners don't care what's put forth if it makes them money. If you're looking for propaganda and alt-right fantasy, you watch Fox, Drudge, Breifart, whatever. If you're not brain damaged, you watch something else. Doesn't matter if you're right or left or in between, you flip right past the Fox or MSNBC types. Just because the 'other' news doesn't spew Trump's lies and deranged fantasies, doesn't make it the political opposition. It means they simply refuse to lick Trump's ass like you take great pleasure in doing. You're a great example of tribal behavior. Truth, facts and reality are irrelevant - only what your master tells you is worth knowing. Sad!
          that"s fucking hilarious. New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS vs Fox for mainstream publications. You are seriously trying to say with a straight face that the media doesn't have a left wing bias?

          I'm not talking about Breitbart, or Vox, or Huffpo, or Daily Wire etc. If you want to play in the weeds go ahead


          The reason Fox gets way more viewers is because, like CNN, ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS, they are catering to the other half the country, but don't have to compete against the other major networks. and yes, Disney is left.

          look in the fucking mirror


          Every wonder why all of those sound exactly the same?

              Seriously why was it better?

              • There was actually some discussion and a modicum of respect. Sometimes it got a bit ugly but over all, there were meaningful discussions. There was very little trolling. It was a solid thread, with mostly intelligent discussions. Very few if any stupid assed memes. It was a pretty good catch all thread.

                        • Because there was some thoughtful exchange on important policy matters.
                          It was a pretty good catch all thread.

                          I disagree, it was better before DSL and 'you all' turned the 'Miscellaneous And Off Topic Subjects' into the 'Left Winged Talking Porch'. Sorry that Kapture came in and broke that up. I don't even remember you guys even here till you wanted to talk politics? - Now you don't like Kapture doing what you guys did to me, too bad.

                          • Probably would have left you alone had you not posted obvious fake youtube videos and other stupid shit like links to Info Wars. My favorite was the one where someone had mashed up Obama to make it look like he said that he was born in Kenya. You posted it as proof and rightfully got your ass handed to you.

                            Good times.

                            • No it's not monstrous, it's what happens in this country when a parent commits a crime and is prosecuted for it. Do we let kids stay with their parents in jail after their parents commit a crime? Is splitting up families on this basis monstrous?

                              Manafort was just seperated from his kids, i dont hear anyone on the left advocating for him. Like it or not, coming into this country ILLEGALLY is a crime.

                                Poor lil snowflake. Talking bad about Trump made you collapse in a pool of tears. I apologize.

                                Have you made your donation to the Paul Manafort/Michael Flynn Defense Fund yet? Kapture can get you the number.
