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.

    These guys showed up at the airport with their own passports and a few of them were know to be part of his security detail. It is all very sloppy. I've seen enough mob, spy and heist movies to believe these guys were not master planners but it still seems like they would be clued in to how obvious they were.
    More likely---they were emboldened by Trump's rhetoric (journalists/media is the enemy of the people) and know how much he values money. In addition, JK was only a US resident and that Trump and the MAGA people would believe just about any excuse they could come up with to NOT take action against SA. Not only that, but the Right wing has already begun smearing JK to make the Trump base feel good (Or at least not bothered) about JK's death.

      nah, He needs the Saudis to make nice with Israel against Iran and really dampen Iranian influence in the ME.

      More important that his own personal wealth, which has dropped by 1B since his inauguration, is fixing the problem of Iran, a problem that the last administration made much worse.

      • Why is it if a man kills another man in battle it's called heroic, yet in the heat of passion, it's called murder?

        • #GentryProgs arguing that PDJT is responsible for the murder is a nice lithmus test for me.

          Your mistaken. Everything PDJT every does anywhere is about his business. Please read up on the #GentryProg talking points.

          • In this specific case, the business questions are warranted, Jared Kushner isn't reported to be good friends with MBS for his personality. I'm mean maybe he is, but that seems remote. It should be more than just a GentryProg talking point in my opinion, I would hope conservatives are a little queasy about this.

              Of course, if the Bush 2 administration had not gone into Iraq in the first place then Iran would not have been in a position to get more influence in the ME.

              • Iran has been an issue for 40-45 years but if you listen to Iran hawks, the worst is always just around the corner.

                  • Welcome to October
                    Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown is preparing to take legal action against his Republican challenger, Rep. Jim Renacci, after the congressman released a statement Thursday evening accusing him of sexual harassment 30 years ago.

                    • I find this hilarious. DISQUALIFYING!

                      I will say this, I know for a fact that Senator Brown was banging a law school classmate of my mine in 1998-99ish -- and probably after that. That would have made him 46/47 and she was early 20s. I thought it was hilarious because she was all kinds of crazy and he was a fucking Rep at the time -- guy could have pulled someone way hotter and way less batshit.

                      Forgot all about it until he became Senator. Still makes me chuckle. I think he eventually re-married someone more age appropriate and almost certainly more sane. But, heh, those sowing your wild oats days...lol

                      • Senate polling this week has overall been quite a bit more positive for the Dems than last week. Kavanaugh effect wearing off, just a bit?
