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.

    • Already handled in the previous post. Now do you want to talk about your incredibly stupid list of not-really accomplishments or not? Let me know when you're ready for us to unpack that further. I have some ideas about how.

        • Produce a post where anyone said the US was going to get nuked by North Korea, it didn't happen.

          • The narrative a man was elected with his finger on the button, not really looking at any one person. You know that was said.

            • No, it wasn't said, its a effing strawman. Nobody came close to saying Korea was going to nuke the US. Produce a post or shut up. People were saying his negotiating strategy was foolish. It has been ineffective as all administrations dealing with North Korea.

                    All the other presidents didn't meet with a North Korean leader, extract a concession that was not followed through on, and make a concession that was. If Trump's signature achievement is averting disaster, well, he's done a demonstrably worse job than any other president ever faced with this task. The sabre rattling usually comes in the first year or two of a presidency. Most presidents are smart enough to listen to the Korea watchers who tell them to stick to the multilateral negotiating process and avoid giving NK the attention it craves.

                    • I agree but that is a little too nuanced for this conversation, brace for some mean memes.

                          You keep pushing this and that was hardly the issue that was brought up.

                          Most of what was talked about stemmed from skepticism that anything productive would come out of the talks. NK pretty much got all they could want out of the engagement. We got weaker in PACOM and played at the geopolitical level.

                          The idea that anyone disagreeing with Trump comprises a forum conjoined twin -- and came in here raving unanimously about NUCLEAR disaster is a level of convenience that is way below you.

                              • It doesn't seem like you read that article, its pretty tame. He's arguing for guardrails on the button, he is arguing it for any president. He certainly isn't saying Trump isn't going to get us nuked by North Korea. Read up. If that's the piece of evidence, its very lame. Be better.
