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.

                not really. You are bitching about vote totals and representation in state houses. Reality is there are people that live outside of big cities. crazy, I know.

                    And significantly fewer live in rural America than urban America. We've been through this before. Almost 81% of Americans lived in urban areas (which includes the suburbs) as of 2010. It's gone up every decade since the first census. 1920 was the first census where more people lived in cities than the countryside and like I say, it's now more than an 80/20 split.

                    Incidentally, there are at least a few states gerrymandered all to hell to the Dems' advantage. Maryland and Massachusetts being two of those.

                      • Did we ever really follow up on how wildly off Rasmussen's predictions for the election were?

                        They were the only pollster than said Republicans would win the popular vote. Dems ended up winning by +8%

                        Now look at how many polls show Trump with negative approval. Rasmussen says his popularity is +1

                        https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com...rump-approval/

                        When one pollster is so far off base both from the outcomes and other pollsters, maybe question the model they are using. In Rasmussen's case, they are probably overestimating the size of the Republican base.

                        • LOL...can't make this shit up.

                          Ivanka has been using a personal email account to conduct government business and has sent 'hundreds' of emails from it. Says she had no idea this was frowned upon.

                          https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...=.144aadf9dbb5

                          The discovery alarmed some advisers to President Trump, who feared that his daughter’s practices bore similarities to the personal email use of Hillary Clinton, an issue he made a focus of his 2016 campaign. Trump attacked his Democratic challenger as untrustworthy and dubbed her “Crooked Hillary” for using a personal email account as secretary of state.

                          Some aides were startled by the volume of Ivanka Trump’s personal emails — and taken aback by her response when questioned about the practice. Trump said she was not familiar with some details of the rules, according to people with knowledge of her reaction.

                            then perhaps some of you libs need to move out to the country (actually, don't). just because you live in a major city doesn't mean those in the rest of the State or Country have to live without representation

                            and im talking major metropolitan cities, not suburbs of 50,000 and over, or "urban clusters of 2500-50,000 say 250,000+. i know that's how the census defines it, but when i say city I'm talking 250,000+, the top probably 85 cities in the country. i think when talking about cities, there should be a distinction of a city of 4000 people and one with 400000. i don't know what % that would be... % of the US population that lives in a city where population is 250,000+ but it is less than 80%. somewhere around 60?
