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.

    • So that would be $13.9bn for 315 miles, or ~$44m/mil. The DHS memo a month ago implied ~$7m/mi and in another section $16m/mi. Obviously the cost per mile is going to very by area, but that's a heck of a range, and blows out of the water per/mile construction costs for things more technically complex. Given what ought to be extremely heightened concerns about corruption -- grifters love procurement -- you'd think maybe we'd get some coverage of this. Media can hardly bother to point out that $5.7bn isn't enough to build the whole thing. It's not going to get built, but IF it were to be built it would surely be some of the most wasteful spending in the history of the country.

        Lucid.

        I see an analogy to Edgar Allen Poe's Pit and the Pendulum, with the office of the Presidency strapped to the table.

          5.7 would cover 250 miles. 22 mil per mile.

          at the most conservative estimates, illegals cost us 16 billion per year.

            I like that. I'm not quite so pessimistic, but I like it. A lot.

            • Looking to go outside of my box and try a wide array of Whiskey this year, any suggestions? what are some of your favorites?

              picked up some Makers 46 yesterday, and it's pretty good. I like it better than regular Markers Mark

              • This has been floating around the Interwebs, its almost too eerily similar. A grifter named Trump trying to sell a wall to scared townsfolk.

                        • Good on 139 Texan Republicans, thank you for doing what's right. FOAD to 49 dirtbags (probably all Trump supporters).

                          • The GoFundMe account which raised $20 M to build The Wall is shutting down having fallen well short of its goal of $1 Billion. That means everyone gets refunds...except the account Founder is attempting to have folks redirect their refund towards the creation of a brand new "non-profit" called We Build the Wall, Inc.
