  • Baseball Fever Policy

    I would like to remind everyone of the site's posting policies.

    For those not choosing to click on the link and review, I will call your attention to Article V, section F & G, which is as follows:

    V. Baseball Fever Netiquette:

    Participants at Baseball Fever are required to adhere to these principles, which are outlined in this section.

    f. Personal attacks of any type against Baseball Fever readers will not be tolerated. In these instances the post will be copied by a moderator and/or administrator, deleted from the site, then sent to the member who made the personal attack via a Private Message (PM) along with a single warning. Members who choose to not listen and continue personal attacks will be banned from the site.

    g. It is important to remember that many contextual clues available in face-to-face discussion, such as tone of voice and facial expression, are lost in the electronic forum. As a poster, try to be alert for phrasing that might be misinterpreted by your audience to be offensive; as a reader, remember to give the benefit of the doubt and not to take umbrage too easily. There are many instances in which a particular choice of words or phrasing can come across as being a personal attack where none was intended.
    Please keep in mind that responding to personal attacks with a personal attack is not appropriate. At times, members create a second user name in which to carry out or respond to personal attacks. Please keep in mind creating multiple user names is not allowed, and it is cause for suspension.

    While not specified in the site policies, please follow this guideline -- If you feel a post is inappropriate, please do not respond to it. Instead, please report the post. You can report a post by clicking on the black triangle with a "!" inside it. The black triangle is located at the lower left of each post, next to the "Blog this Post" link.

    The personal attacks that have become prevalent in the past several days must cease immediately. If they continue, temporary suspensions or outright permanent banishments will be handed out.
