A situation in another thread necessitated that I post this reminder.
Lakers fans are allowed to post on this blog. They're not allowed to troll or bait, but they're allowed to legitimately make points, so long as it is context appropriate. Insults aimed at our team or our players will not be tolerated -- and will be an automatic ban -- but legitimate debate is acceptable. We're taking care of the bad Lakers fans, but cut the intelligent and articulate ones some slack.
Do not label others trolls, or make other personal attacks. You must abide by the rules at all times, regardless of who you're corresponding with. All that labeling posters results in is the destroying of interesting dialog. If somebody is trolling, report them to the staff.
I don't want to have to remind people again. This is a big week for us, and the absolute last thing I want to do is come down harshly on Celtics fans, because they allowed themselves to be baited. Just use the "report to a moderator" button, please.
