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.

          Not too many of the B1G folks to be honest. For them I act out my posts with interpretive dance. For the OSU folks I make a series of clicks and whistles.

            Look, it was a M guy who penned the thread title and all the grammatical mistakes. Decorum prohibits me from mentioning his name (Jeff).

              We try to keep it civil here. That approach tends to produce better dialogue. Most of us posting on this site don't post or engage in repartee involving personal attacks. Want to talk sass about M, fine. About other posters and on a personal level, not so fine.

              I'd add that there's an occasional post that can be read as a personal attack that gets by. The world is not a perfect place. OTH, posts that are overtly stupid, wrong, misleading and not fact or evidence based deserve to be called out.

              Like we've told others here who like to pile on, gentlemen engaging in a duel serve themselves and this forum best if the round whizzes by your opponent's ear instead of hitting him square between the eyes.

                This explains much.

                  Hmmm...

                  Well, that was (to me) obviously a mild jest of a post. Not sure which part earned such a warning: hilljack? Moosehead? U.P.? Illiterate? (which is obviously a silly taunt because this is a message board you read) and, regardless, it certainly didn't carry the weight of say "dickhead" or other similar epithet. FWIW, a "hilljack" is a time-honored badge once only assigned to Tennessee fans but has become a playful taunt meaning the antithesis of urbane.

                  Nonetheless, feel free to mothball this thread.

                    It's your thread. It stays and has the potential to be a good one. You're welcome here. What you do with our recommendations is up to you.

                          I've seen nothing offensive in anything you've posted.

                          And if anyone should be offended by the term "hilljack", it would be me.

                          And, I'm not.

                          My father's entire family tree is from eastern Kentucky. Grandpa worked in the coal mines around Harlan County until after he was trapped in a cave-in, and managed to survive. He decided that his son, (my dad) wasn't going to work in the coal mines, and moved to Michigan to work in the auto factories.

                          I make fun of Kentucky folks all the time, because I have Kentucky bloodlines, and my dad's family poke fun at themselves all the time.

                          So, its all good. I see this as good natured banter, and all I've asked is that we keep things close to civil.

                          Proceed ...

                            The problem, as I see it, is twofold. First, unless you were draft eligible for WWII, you don't have firsthand knowledge of M as relevant CFB power. M fans are, more or less, akin to jackwagons touting Portugal's greatness on the back of Da Gama. Second, AlabamAlum is an asstard. His existence contradicts Darwin, Jebus, all basic laws of nature and the Constitution. Mixing the two is worse than mixing OP, hack, several cosmopolitans and the musical stylings of the Earth Wind and Fire.
