    Without commenting on what we do or do not know ( ), you are correct. The same 'play nice' rules still apply here. HOWEVER, the topics discussed tend to be polarizing and therefore more confrontational discussions are allowed. One should not take this as meaning you can call someone else "stupid," etc. On the contrary. It means that you shouldn't get your feelings hurt if someone strongly disagrees with you.

    Also, don't get your blood pressure up when someone posts a link / discussion from a radical blog or news source.

    We are tired of getting PMs / emails that complain about the 'tone' of someone's argument. Likewise, we're tired of anyone who uses bullying tactics to get a point across.

    In summary, we can agree to disagree without being disagreeable...but don't come crying to us every 5 minutes if you don't like how somebody said something. THAT's the message.

    I too would not like to see Non-Sports changed. If you're ego gets dinged here you don't need to go to some of the other boards I go to. Pretty tame here. A little needling (either way) goes a long way toward knowing how you really feel about a subject.

    i dont mind the name calling or general stupidity. the only thing i would like to see is some kind of obvious troll vote. if you post something that is completely stupid, dishonest and contrary to facts then all the other board members should get to vote on that post. once you have 10 posts that all get overwhelming troll status then you get banned for a week.

    oh yeah, and i want immunity from the vote

    I only consider people trolls when they post something that contradicts their real beliefs just to stir the pot. Sometimes popular opinion is wrong.

    i don't even mind that. sometimes playing the devil's advocate leads to good discussion about important topics. my problem is with intentionally mischaracterizing someone's position over and over again so the rest of us have to muddle through some stupid argument that doesnt add to the knowledge or insight of anyone. the obvious straw man arguments get on my nerves and waste everyone's time.

    So are we still forbidden to call OBama derogatory pet names like the Lefties used to do with Bush?

    Still forbidden? That implies that it was forbidden to begin with.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    I think both sides left and right have been treated equally fair.

    As for the name calling I look at it the same way as having to use profanity when you speak. Do you really have to go down there to make your point?

    Look for this question to be asked again after the 2012 elections.

    I can't imagine there is anyone that doesn't know this but I'll say it anyway: never argue with a moderator, even if they're wrong. Especially if they're wrong. This goes for on-duty police and the general citizenry when they're armed.
