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.

    Holy shit...this story...

    Georgia's Speaker of the House is also a practicing defense attorney. It's claimed that he has used his position as Speaker to repeatedly delay his client's cases. In one, a man charged with a DUI has had his trial delayed 17 TIMES over the course of 10+ years thanks to Ralston saying none of the trial dates work for him. Another of his clients, who enticed and solicited a minor, has had his trial delayed since 2009 thanks to Ralston. Ralston appears to use his position as a Legislator as a reason for clients to hire him: he can delay their cases indefinitely by saying his Speakership duties prevent him from attending trials.

    • I love this, Trump whining again. "This was the illegal and treasonous 'insurance policy' in full action!" and "illegal coup attempt". Really? Who is the ultimate beneficiary of such a dastardly and nefarious deed (other than the American people)? That Deep State mastermind Mike Pence, that's who!

        • Jussie Smollett Offered Job At CNN After Fabricating News Story


          Chicago (CNN) producers were reportedly impressed throughout the ongoing saga of Smollett's apparent hoax attack on himself. They realized early on the facts didn't add up but were fascinated with how well the actor kept the narrative going.

          "Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization," said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. "He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It's hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us."

          • Regular reminder that Roger Stone is trash. He posted a picture of the Judge is his case with what appears to be crosshairs near her head and the following text:

            “Through legal trickery Deep State hitman Robert Mueller has guaranteed that my upcoming show trial is before Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointed Judge who dismissed the Benghazi charges again Hillary Clinton and incarcerated Paul Manafort prior to his conviction for any crime. #fixisin

            Hours later he deleted the post, claiming he definitely did not intend to threaten her in any way or disrespect the court (no disrespect intended when he said "the fix is in".)

            Stone has a bail hearing tomorrow. Ought to be fun.

            EDIT: oops, looks like ol' Roger is a wee bit nervous, so he filed an official apology with the Court. What a cuck.

                it was a failed coup because Pence wasn't on board. neither was the majority of the cabinet.

                the only real "evidence" McCabe had was a piece of oppo research he knew was from Clinton's campaign. he started an FBI investigation because Trump exercized his constitutional authority, and launched a counter intelligence investigation on Trump based on no evidence, based on no crime, but because he MUST have had help from Russia, because there was no way Hillary should have lost. that is why McCabe tried to remove a duly elected President of the United States.

                    • Every Immigrant, Muslim, Gay, Black, Mexican can’t even walk in their own neighborhood now without looking over their shoulder for all the white MAGA hat wearing thugs around the corner just waiting to physically assault them. This is "MAGA Country!" Im sure every single poster here knows more than a few of these deplorable people - who Trump dog whistles at every single day.

                        • Maxine wants people to understand is that our President is embolden people that normally wouldn’t say or doing anything with hatred, to where they are now acting on it. Congresswoman say’s there is a reason why all the sudden black people can’t study while black, mow a lawn while black or even have a picnic while black without being attacked.

                              I cannot believe Goodloe Sutton is getting press. He is editor/owner of a paper in a town of less than 2,000. He was a troll before there was an internet. He once had a headline that read, "Black Thugs from Selma murder White Man from Demopolis" (or something close). He has to be in his 80's. I know he is loving the attention.

                              • He once wrote an article that "Uniontown Smells Like Doo-Doo" - Uniontown is a small "rival" town of Sutton's small town of Linden.

                                Usually, he writes these articles when he needs the revenue. He once said that the "better" the headline, the bigger the demand. The papers sell out quickly when he spices them up. I have no doubt that he increased his run three-fold before he ran this latest piece.
