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.

      • Here's some technical information about Liney's report. He says it was a polyp, that is, it was apparently growing outward into the lumen of the colon, not into the wall. IOW, it was an "exophytic" growth and any malignant change would have very low probability of early spread into the system. If it was growing into the wall, IOW an endophytic growth, also called a sessile polyp, the risk of spread into the system would have been far greater. So I would say Liney is now cured of this particular lesion. Colon polyps are extremely common, and they are often pre-malignant. It makes good sense to start getting colonoscopies by age 45 or 50 and earlier if there is a family history of colon cancer.

        And if you've had polyps in the past there is likelihood of more to appear in the future. So stay in touch with your gastroenterologist.

          My oldest son just turned 36, and I told him that I will be his driver for his colonoscopy at AGE 40. I'm going to bug him until he does it. I will have a follow up colonoscopy sometime in January-February. And if more polyps are found, I'll have one every year until it comes back clean.

            • Sure is.

              Thanks for the visit, Jon. Just knowing you were there and asking about me brightened my day just a bit more. My family appreciated you being there as well.

                • Hahah....

                  I think Jon must have given my wife the wrong stack of magazines. All I ended up with was a New Yorker, a Time Magazine and one other ...

                  I think if he would have handed her porn, she would have rolled it up and smacked him over the head with it ... :-)

                    • Liney, I'm a bit late here as I have not checked this thread lately. Going back to your first post….I'm glad that you are where you are now. I wish you a speedy recovery and continued good health in the future.

                      • I'm late to see this too, but good luck with recovery Liney.

                            I'm feeling great and pretty much back to normal.

                            • That's good to hear.

                              Some here know I'm a colon cancer survivor. A routine colonoscopy saved my life. Wish more people would get checked.

                              • That's exactly what happened to me, AA. A routine stool sample during my yearly physical got my doctor to INSIST to me that I get the colonoscopy. That's when my cancer was found. I was very fortunate that the cancer had not spread. Had I waited another 6 months to a year, it might have been a different story.

                                I'm a huge advocate of colonoscopies now. They're easy, and can give you life saving information.
