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.

    WAY too much Tigers, Red Wings, Lions, etc. on that board. One Red Wings (playoff) game creates 30+ discussions you have to navigate through...

    Board is in serious need of actual moderation.

      Yep .... I've come seriously close to not renewing. But I get sucked in by the occasional good post by Jonathan Chait, John Borton, recruiting stuff by Josh Helmholdt and a handful of respected posters that have good connections and to boot command of the English language.

        Hey Jeff-

        This is a total aside but I think Michigan is going to be wearing the helmets depicted in your avatar for the ND game. I'd been meaning to mention that to you.

          Cool. I also hope they wear the maze (not highlighter yellow) pants of that era. That would be way cool.

            I don't get the whole infatuation with throwbacks. I mean, they have their place I suppose, but it's pretty much "jumped the shark" at this point.

            Throwbacks for the first EVER night game at Michigan Stadium. That makes no sense. What are you "throwing back" to? It's the freakin' first time it's happened.

              It's all about Nike or whoever is making them trying to rake in a few more bucks.

                  The infatuation with throwbacks is that it allows apparel companies to make millions selling "throwback" uniforms to people.


                  • #24
                    Yep. Not a big fan of throwbacks. The Lions plain silver helmets and pants are an exception. I wish they made those permanent.

                      Liney... Wild hoss says his password doesn't work. Can a new one be resent?

                        I think so, Ent .. but I believe he'd have to contact Deborah to have that done. I don't have that kind of authority.

                          There is a Lost Password feature built in:


                          Of course they'll have to check the email they registered with. And check their junk mail or spam folder as well.

                              talent and Wiz are posting at I think since before World X went down. I don't know about UMStan. Maybe he's kicking it with Jerry Bouldin?


                              • #30
                                I just hope Mr. Bouldin is okay. Haven't seen nor heard from him in quite some time.

                                Stan is fine, the last I knew. He's probably still upset with me, over something that I've forgotten already, but I think he will be back. He likes me too much to stay away much longer.

                                I'd like to see Doug back in here too. But, I think he's been pretty busy with work, and his new tailgate supply business. I imagine we'll see him as football season approaches.

                                I think about the only time we will see Mr. Talent will be when he has something to crow about regarding O-Lie-O. If Tressel is exonerated, you can expect to see him here in all his bombastic glory.

                                Not sure why Wizard isn't posting. He knows where we are. Perhaps as the Nebraska game draws closer, he will show up.
