Over the last few weeks I've noticed that quite a few of Talking Chop's loyal readers have been going over to TheGoodPhight.com and have posted on their boards.
It makes our phenomenal website look bad, and it's against SB Nation's community guidelines. We've all gone over there at one point or another, and regardless of if you intended to "troll" or not, nothing good can come from it. Talking Chop has a ton of info on a daily basis and there's no reason to go onto a rival's website.
If you go over there and post, you'll either be:
1.) Given your first and final warning.
2.) Banned temporarily. -- Gondeee has to un-ban you if this happens, and we've all seen how lazy of a journalist he can be. It might take a while to get back on TC.
3.) Banned permanently.
Each will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but I (and the other Mods) would really like to not worry about you going over there and posting. Stick to TC and hang out with your e-neighborhood Braves fans!
And as always, if there's ever any fan from a different blog that intends to troll on TC, "flag" their comment and they'll be taken care of. They give us moderating tools for a reason. We obviously want to be gracious to anyone who visits TC, but SB Nation wants their sites to be as professional as possible, and so do we.
Thank you in advance.
I guess a few of you don't understand what we're trying to prevent. We don't care if you go over and ask, "Hey, I have Ryan Howard on my fantasy team...is he playing tonight?" or something similar. What we (and SBN) don't want is for you to go over and stir things up. That's when things get bad and makes us look like Yankees or Red Sox fans.
