    Sports Two Rules


    1. All posters with honorable intentions are welcome.

    2. This is a big site with a lot of members. You may not like every one of them. However, we expect everyone to at least respect each other.

    3. Respect the moderators, global moderators, producers, commissioners, admins, and other staff members of SportsTwo.

    4. Flame wars are not allowed. We do tolerate poking fun of one another ingood fun, but hateful posts towards another poster are not allowed.

    5. Trash talk is allowed. It's one thing to call Portland's NBA team the "Jailblazers" and another to call their fans idiots. The former is allowed, the latter is not.

    6. SportsTwo is to be a work-friendly and family-friendly site. While there is no blanket rule on how to enforce this, it is completely the discretion of SportsTwo staff to enforce this rule and how to enforce it.

    7. Everyone is here to offer their opinions, so be prepared to have people disagree with your opinions. There is a difference between attacking someone's post (their opinion) and attacking the poster with the latter not allowed. The staff is here to monitor for such occurrences.

    8. Users who have multiple accounts will be publicly identified.

    9. We can't anticipate all of the things the staff may find unacceptable. Again, it is completely the discretion of SportsTwo staff to enforce any unwritten policies they deem fit, and you are expected to abide by these judgments.

    10. The staff is here to be of service any way we can. If you have questions or need help with anything, feel free to PM a mod, GM, Producer, Commissioner, or an Admin.

    11. We reserve the right to amend these rules at any time.

    Chris you worry too much man. This forum has always had feuds, and it WILL always have feuds. And those rules were intentionally ambiguous, which is what opens them up to interpretation and rule bending.

    Rule #1 is the biggest offender of that. All posters with honorable intentions are welcome. Shouldn't that mean that trolling is not allowed? But Sly is one of the biggest trolls on the forum!

    Trolling is fine. If someone takes it too far than apologize and move on.

    Rules are great if there is no room for interpretation.

    I would be happy to.

    Yesterday, in my thread about the Pee-Wees Playhouse marathon, I mentioned for anyone that wanted to play along, Blazer(s) was the secret word. As anyone with a soul that has seen that brilliant show knows, when someone says the secret word, everyone screams. Thus, the Aaaaahhhhh!!!!! Reply on any post that contained that word yesterday.

    It was a fun thing. If you found it stupid or annoying, then, well....

    I like that you mods are trying to make things on this forum more clear for certain posters who have a desire to push boundaries.
    But to me this is just going to lead to more boundary pushing.
    As now people can say.
    'oh it wasn't a listed rule therefore I should be able to get away with it.'

    Thank you for the volunteer work all of the mods do. But rules or not there are posters on this website who've yet to learn how to adult. Attemping to make things less grey won't change these posters. As they get off on pushing the limits.

    Or they are just dicks in there day to day life and act like they know everything while they post from their moms basement. (Not saying you).
