    By the way, I totally appreciate the "method behind the madness": to make board discipline consistent. As I said, the devil is in the details.

    Doc, this is exactly the case. We had many members who had quotes in there sigs for the sole purpose of making fun of them. Some members got way out of hand with this and had 4 quotes in there sigs.

    "Annoyance" is really nebulous, and I wonder about its enforcement.

    I agree that the off-topic/wrong forum penalty seems really strict.

    I agree. The annoyance thing can become too much of a personal issue if you aren't careful.
    The wrong forum is sometimes a simple over-sight or an accident. I have posted in the wrong forum before, realized that I had, and wanted to delete it and change but am not able to.

    This board is WAYYYY more lenient than some message boards. I have a lifetime ban at Fark, and I'm a nice guy!

    I believe they are explaining the way the rules work, in detail. It isn't harsh, it isn't nit picky. Its just the details of the reporting.

    I would suggest then, that you specify "quoted text in sig for the purpose of antagonism" or just let it fall under "personal attacks" to avoid confusion.

    no its In loving memory of a couple of members here who have had love ones pass away recently.

    but back to your points about the warning system. the way it is now you will see what perecentage you have if you do something bad, and you can click on the % and it will tell you what you did bad, and on what thread you did it, so you can ALWAYS know and never forget.

    A Q on "linking to other fan sites"

    Do you consider miamidolphins.com another fan site? Also, some people keep more updated stuff on other fan sites. Both Merman and myself have talked about the salary cap before.... I know he keeps a regularly updated salary cap page that I have linked to before. That shouldnt be against the TOS. Its promoting discussion about the Miami Dolphins and its a little more in detail than the cap page we have on here.

    What about if something is posted on billszone that is directly related to us? In the "beast of the AFC east" forum, isnt that the entire point of that forum?

    Also, do you consider all the nfldraftcountdown.com and sites like that other fan sites? Because in the draft forum, people link updated mock drafts all the time..... just because its being linked to another fan site, doesnt mean its not serving its purpose and helping conversation or initiating conversation about the Dolphins.

    I agree with most of the rules, but man, some of the other ones seem right out of the Mein Kampf......
