-Please don't plagiarize without either written permission and/or posting link to original source and comment crediting the source.
-Don’t speak (type) anything here you wouldn’t want your grandmother reading.
-Don’t curse or use inflammatory language either in some sort of emotional tirade reaction to a situation or another poster, or use language to bait someone else into the same. Seriously, this is about community and anything more than banter is strictly forbidden. Grant respect; expect respect.
-No betting on the games originates here. We don’t actively support it, we don’t passively support it, and we would rather people who extort others either financially or baited via ego crawl back underneath whatever rock from which they emerged. However, we will ‘pick’ games and discuss them as any other sports based website will do- that comes with the territory. Nothing posted here by the site owners, contributors, nor members is to be taken as offering odds in any type of wagering activity- it just so happens the language to express the likelihood of winning/losing is similar to that of the wagering community, and which is used as a standard for communicating. Any open discussions about wagering will be kabashed with extreme prejudice.
-No spamming. If you’re a spammer, beware: you don’t even get a warning. Members here posting from time to time to exterior sites pertaining to the discussion is actually encouraged. Why? Again, because this is a community, and we act accordingly.
-One Membership only. There is no need for multiple memberships unless there is something funky going on. We’re intent on avoiding funk here.
-Politics, religion, and matters more important than College Football are few and far between. There is a section available for these conversations we suggest you use voluntarily, because conversations of that nature are likely to arrive in that location anyway. The location is the A51 Skunkworks Board.
-These things needed to be said according to attorneys we know… We’re also not big on rules around here. That said, we jealously guard our community and will prune if a problem ever arises- which leads to the final comment here: This is a private place, not a public domain. Your first amendment rights aren’t observed. We’re reasonable, but we’re not going to put up with interlopers disrupting the joint. I wish that is all we had to say. It would be simpler, no?
okay... here is the rest of the mumbo jumbo that is apparently a 'good idea' legally speaking to impart as a condition of membership. I'm thinking we're all covered here now.
