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.

      • Of course, Saudi Arabia is even now attempting to spin this as if Khashoggi only has himself to blame as he picked a fistfight with the 15-man hitman squad

        • 17 days of the Saudis saying they had nothing to do with his disappearance. They said he had left the consulate. They refused to allow Turkish police into the consulate for 2 weeks, hired painters, and had cleaners come in before the police.

          Now they say he accidentally died in a 'fistfight' and low-level agents did this on their own without anyone in the royal family knowing. Right. And absolutely no revelations on what they did with his body and why.

          • Jonathan Swan (Axios guy who's on Fox a lot) just re-posted this message from MBS' younger brother than he received a week ago. Says it hasn't aged well. No kidding. Anyone who takes the Saudi's current story at face value is a fool. They've been lying every step of the way.

              • To be sure, the Turks have cause to lie as well. But the Saudis have been proven completely unreliable and it's their story that has changed the most over the past 2 weeks.

                          • The Saudis are simply practicing Trumpism. Tell a lie, double down, deny, deny, deny, alter lie, double down, lie some more. Continue distorting until people become bored and move on.

                            In other news, Trump has announced that the US will be pulling out of the INF treaty, signed by the Reagan administration. Says the Russians have been cheating for years (plausible if not probable). Of course, America's Shitstain® has to try and blame Obama for some unknown reason. Real reason for withdrawal? China has been unrestricted by any treaty in the development of intermediate range missiles while the US and Russia have restricted themselves for the stability of global politics.

                            I suspect Russia is getting a little nervous about the Chinese missiles on their border. Putin probably called his cock holster and ordered him to withdraw from the treaty, feel free to blame the Russians. Several tactical and strategic moves by this withdrawal. Chump can feign being tough on Russia to his imbecilic base. Chump now has something he thinks he can offer as a counter argument when he gets called out for coddling Russia. Russia can now use the US withdrawal and 'phony' blame for internal consumption. Blame for additional stresses to the economy can be deflected to the US as Russia 'must' respond to such provocations. Russia can now develop and deploy modern IRBMs primarily toward China (and secondly western Europe) without restriction. Chump gets propaganda, Putin gets missile deployments.

                            Just what the world needs is more nuclear tipped missiles.

                            • To answer AA's question about the King, there's a significant number of people convinced he's no longer lucid, or relatively so. I've no idea how to handicap that one.

                              Froot, JMO but the Saudis nailed him in the consulate because that's where they knew they'd have unfettered access to him.
