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.

    Yea, I don't read his tweets, unless he tweets something really stupid (more than usual) that people point out.

    Trump has been tweeting relentlessly today and almost all of it has to do with the Biden/Ukraine stuff

    The problem is Iowa and New Hampshire are overwhelmingly white. Nevada is after that and it's mostly white or Hispanic. South Carolina is 4th and if he has already lost 3 states...well...

    As long as he can make it through the grind till the election time - not sure he will make it.

    I admit, he is much older looking and sounding than I anticipated.

    I have maintained since Day 1 that Biden will not be the nominee.

    Warren has slid ahead of Biden in tonight's "gold standard" Iowa poll.

    Warren 22%
    Biden 20%
    Sanders 11%

    Trump advocating corrupt, unethical or criminal behavior? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

    Trump, stalwart foe of corruption, has frequently argued that the US needs to revoke the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which makes it a crime for a US citizen to bribe foreign officials. Trump's gone on the record multiple times that he thinks being blocked from bribing foreign officials puts US companies at a disadvantage

    So yeah, his concern over Ukrainian corruption is very genuine.
