Community Guidelines

As you might expect from a Raiders community, we do things a bit different around here. Something you'll realize when reading these rules.

1) There is no 24-hour wait time to join this blog. That's how we roll. If you can dish it out, we can take it. However, think before you comment. If you're here to troll, don't expect that angry/offensive comment to stand very long or for your membership to last either. If you join, and your first comment breaks site rules, it will be your last. Buh bye.

2) Swearing? Psh. Swear until your heart's content keeping in mind the following rules...

3) Offensive language won't be tolerated. It consists mainly of racism, sexism, and homophobia, but also includes plenty of other isms and discriminatory language. If you think you are being offensive, you probably are. If you don't see it, I will let you know. But I only do that once before banning. And, yes, I recognize the difference between offensive language and satire.

4) Trolling is when you are simply there to stir up shit and if that's your aim, turn right back around and mosey on down that dusty trail. If you're thinking "Ooh, I'll get them", that's trolling. If you see the internet as a highway and you suffer from road rage, you're a troll. If you think this is your neighborhood and you are the self-appointed watch dog, trollololol. You know when you're doing it. And I'll let you know too. But only once.

5) No name calling. It's stupid, internet tough guy nonsense. It serves no purpose but to be blatantly inflammatory. If you want to insult someone, there are plenty of ways to do it without ending every sentence with a petty name. If that's what you want to do, I'll just call your grade school principle and he/she will get out the wooden paddle with the holes in it (to reduce air resistance) and let them handle you.

6) Don't talk religion or politics. Everyone knows those are two subjects that are big no-nos in any mixed company. This is a football blog. Religion and politics have no place here, and they cause fights every single time, guaranteed.
