For Future Reference

I try to be fairly laid back on the rules of engagment here and I know things get heated between posters and it can a little frustrating for new people a lot of times with the "in crowd" we have developed over the past few seasons. BUT, there is a level of things I will not tolerate from posters.

1. The standing rule of no politics/religion applies here as in almost every non-politics religion blog on the internet. This is just a reinforcement, no one has really broken this rule.

2. No Racism - This means nothing that can even be construed as racism. I may not be personally offended by something you say, Royhobbs may not be offended by something you say or even Gondeee, but we aren't here to defend our sensibilities. We are here to defend everyones. And whether you guys realise it or not we are a fostering point of potential new Braves fans nearly every day and these could include fans from other countries who are drawn to the Braves because their favorite player just made the jump from overseas. So in the interests of the Braves lets not look like ignorant fools when we are making our fanposts.

3. Don't call people names. Again, it gets heated here just like everywhere on the intarwebs. But the moment you break into middle school name calling tirades you are done for the day. Sarcasm is always welcome and is a wonderful tool for making points. Use it, abuse it. Stats happen to work well also. The stat/sarcasm combo awards extra DP to the victor as well.

Anyways, some of you may know what all this pertains to. Others are probably oblivious. But I thought it needed to reinforced. Thanks and have a great day

Matt
