Hey everyone, it's come to my attention that some folks have been commenting and posting pictures that are inappropriate. There are rules and guidelines for Talking Chop, and I would encourage everyone to review them and abide by them -- they can be found by clicking here, and are always available via a link on the front page.
Invariably it happens that whenever the Braves go through a slump (as they seem to be in now) the natives get restless. It's easy to lash out, but let's try not to be a jerk about it. Posting winy FanPosts about how you're taking your cutesy posting talents to another blog because a moderator warned you, makes you look like an idiot.
I've instructed the moderators on this site to use a zero tolerance policy if they wish, and ban folks without warning. These can be 48 hour bans in which you must email me to be reinstated, or they can be for much longer.
Basically, I'd like everyone to act their age. And if you happen to be under 21, then act like an adult. Practice does not make perfect, practice makes permanent, and if you're someone who continues to act like a child then that's how you'll be treated.
For those of you who follow the rules, thank you. If you ever have any problems with another poster please don't hesitate to email me and let me know.
Oh, and the Braves record at this time last year was 8-and-8, a one game difference from our current 7-and-9 record. Come in off the ledge, and simmer down.
