mods,

What's the rule on quoting content from another team's board, into a thread on the Lions board, but not tagging the user?

Allowed or nah?

We generally frown upon it because it's never done for a good reason but mainly done to take stuff out of context, even if it's not tagged/normally quoted. If you want to comment on a post, comment in the thread it was made in. If you don't feel you can make that comment there, maybe you shouldn't be making the comment.

Understood, thanks for the clarification!

k I think thats enough with the continual back and forth pot shotting at each other. Deleting and carding starts next.

I think people on both side need to keep in mind the following

1) those who are outraged at beams even thinking of leaving or trading high draft picks for players and are denigrating everyone who isn't as outraged as them need to remember that people on the other side of the fence are still concerned, or even upset themselves at what could be happening. Ridiculing someone for having the opinion that this isn't the end of the world is just as poor as ridiculing someone because you think they are "overreacting". They also need to keep in mind that all these scenarios are only possibilities that are yet to occur. Getting outraged at something that hasn't happened yet may be a bit preemptive. No problem having issue with beams leaving, but having issue with the specifics of a trade for beams that hasn't even occurred actually is a little over the top.

2) Those who are bagging people for "overreacting" need to give people a bit of leeway as well and remember that footy brings out a wide range of emotions in people with varying degrees of reaction. Denigrating them without reasoning is not on and makes you worse than the post you're replying too. Now if you want to take issue with a post then fine, but condescendingly asking if people are "ok" not only makes you look like a prick, but also degrades the actual purpose of asking someone if they're ok. Now if you're genuine thats fine but if you are I think it would be better to do so in private rather than on an open forum, realistically what sort of response do you think you'll get in that environment? Any such posts will be treated as they are largely intended, a condescending troll of other posters.

Having said all that, if someone genuinely tries to question your post and reasoning and you answer with posts like "i guess you're just happy with getting bent over" and the like then you will start to be treated as a troll and will be carded accordingly. Rebutt the post with a reasoned argument. Also the use of :rolleyes: symbol will be dealt with harshly going forward.
