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.

    • I'd bet a lot of money that neither the Senate nor Governor is double digits, let alone 18. I don't think the Rs are going to win in Florida at all, but I do think that poll is wacky. A-rating or not.

      But, we're talking two "lean D" states. If the Rs pull one of those and split the two current "toss-up" states then they're at 52.

        haha, yeah the dems had to do something to stop that talking point. Watching the Kavanaugh debacle closely, it is a legitimate possibility that the "bombs" are fake bombs that were not designed to go off and done with the specific purpose to frame the whole of the right and Trump's rhetoric.


        When Republican congressmen were shot by a Bernie Bro the right didn't politicize it against the left. It was out of the headlines within a week. The NYTimes ran 19 articles on the shooting in a week, then nothing. So far they have ran 26 articles on this bomb scare.

        I guess they damn well should have politicized the shit out of it. Lesson learned for the next time some leftist wacko goes nuts and sends Ricin to Susan Collins Jim Mattis and President Trump, when anthrax hoaxes get perpetrated on the president's children, When they break a few of Rand Paul's ribs in an assault, when a gunman opens fire at a Trump property, or carries out their fantasies of political assassination.

          Ryan, who was dubbed “Segway Boy” faced multiple felony drug charges in 2016. He got the nickname after he was seen riding a Segway around the state capitol in 2011 taunting Republican lawmakers.

          He also attempted a congressional run against Paul Ryan in 2012.

            • thing about this guy is he has to be halfway educated. most of the American public don't know Maxine waters, soros, what deniro said and postmarking from wasserman schutz tells me this guy watches Hannity a lot or wants you to think he watches fox a lot

              otoh anybody that goes to the extent of dropping off these 9 packages with those 9 targets in mind and all seemingly are inoperable--I don't think he intended for any of these to really go off

              watching morning joe again they've already decided this is trumps fault and the house needs to go democrat in 2 weeks to stop people like this guy

              so you wonder who benefits from this

              this guy picked his targets in such a way that the only people who are benefitting from this will be the democrats after all some rt wing nut job just tried to assassinate 2 democratic presidents and whomever else that is anti trump

              smart enough to pick those 9 targets but to dumb to realize what he is doing is only going to benefit the democrats

              I wouldn't have ever thought this way 5 years ago but after seeing American intelligence assts used to frame an American citizen to claim an American president colluded with russians to get elected then continue that fairy tale all the way to Mueller and his BS investigation-----well it makes you wonder. throw in kavanaugh and that smear and set up by the dems and it makes you wonder

              • Here's Tucker Carlson politicizing the hell out of Scalise's shooting and using it to demonize the "hard left" who wants nothing less than civil war and the total dissolution of the country.

                • Crazy people act irrationally. Big surprise there. Eric Rudolph bombing abortion clinics generated sympathy for abortion clinics rather than achieve his own goals of ending abortion. The Weather Underground didn't spark a popular uprising by bombing post offices and banks. That doesn't mean they were secret agents working for the opposite side the whole time.

                  • Crazy people act irrationally
                    Correct. I have little doubt that it's NOT someone framing Trump supporters. But, at the same time, I find it ludicrous to blame PDJT. Carlon's rant is ludicrous, too. And I find it remarkably telling that Tucker Carlson is a "whatabout" response to shit being said by CNN and the rest of the "mainstream" media.

                    I mean the cause is crazy. End of story. It's like saying James Garfield was to blame for getting shot because his administration didn't give Guiteau a federal job. That may have been what pushed Guiteau over the edge, but the obvious cause was that Guiteau was a fucking nutjob that foisted Chester Alan Arthur upon this great nation.

                    • Trump says (in a tweet from a cell phone) that he rarely uses a cellphone. Just like he rarely watches tv.

                        The guy is just a nutjob, period. He probably has a secret manifesto calling out how he's been wronged. It illustrates how dangerous people can fall through the cracks when it comes to mental illness identification and treatment. Chump is not at fault, but he certainly encourages such behavior from those that follow him and are less than stable. Chump is a part of the problem but not the root cause.


                        ....I wouldn't have ever thought this way 5 years ago but after seeing American intelligence assets used to frame an American citizen to claim an American president colluded with russians to get elected then continue that fairy tale all the way to Mueller and his BS investigation-----

                            he was talking about official governemnt business. The Chinese can read his tweets, same as you or I.

                            He is talking about speaking with foreign governments about official government business.

                              everyone that I take seriously in the conservative movement said that it was not Bernie's fault that one of his supporters and volunteers did what he did.

                              Without a specific call to violence, you cant really blame the supporter on the leader or use one individual to smear the whole. I get that the left and entire mainstream objective so called, news media will, but they shouldn't.

                                "When you have a white male making the arguments, they carry more weight" -- Michael Avenatti

                                Yeah Imma go out on a limb and say Avenatti might not be the front-runner for the Dem nomination.

                                He may have just gotten more popular on the Alt Right Grifter circuit though!!
