For New/Infrequent EI Posters
« on: January 29, 2017, 02:47:10 pm »

For the past several years this has been the best forum on Hogville for quality discussion about the Razorbacks. Several of us have worked to make it this way, and we like what we have here. 

So let us have an understanding.

Any poster who demonstrates that they cannot come to Extra Innings and discuss Razorback baseball in a civil and intelligent manner will be banned. Consider it the equivalent of a hitter questioning balls and strikes. This is not MMQB and this is not Jump Ball.

There are several posters in here who love Razorback baseball and baseball in general, and we have a good time discussing the game - win or lose. If you cannot live up to that standard you are in the wrong place, and you will not be allowed to stay.   

Should you disagree, fine. You'll be expressing that disagreement from the proverbial parking lot while the rest of us are enjoying the game.

A few simple reminders:

(1) bashing players, individually or as a group, will not be tolerated;

(2) ignorant comments - "DVH should be fired," "DVH is horrible," "this is a wasted year," "no way we'll ever get to Omaha," etc.  - are unacceptable;

(3) take any dispute you have with another poster to PM. If you clutter the board with it you will both be moderated.

Moderation may include, but not be limited to, having your posts sent to the trash can, removal/deletion of your posts, requiring that all of your posts be approved, being placed on read-only status, being banned, and deletion of your account.

One other note: we do not have the ability at Hogville to ban posters from only one forum; hence, you get thrown out here, you're banned from all forums.

Should any of this cause you heartburn, PM me your name and address and I will immediately process your full refund.

This is why EI is the best board on hogville. You can actually discuss razorback baseball without the constant bickering back and forth.

It's why baseball is such a great sport. The pace of the game is slow enough that you eliminate a lot of the knee jerk reaction fans from following it. Thus allowing those of us that truely love it to enjoy in peace.

It isn't that you can complain gripe grinch etc...it is how you do it...learn how to construct a complaint based on knowledge of the game...it makes Wilson work harder to bust your behind and usually if it is good enough..he will comment on it...I make him real mad because I figured this out years ago ...I kid I kid...but seriously...make your complaint constructive...not irrational

Much truth here. Tuck had an outstanding post on this a couple of years ago, but the short example is this:

"(Player X) is really struggling to get around on the inside fastball." - perfectly acceptable.

"(Player X) sucks. He's horrible." - This comment gets you banned.

"(Player Y) can't locate his fastball. Might be time to move him out of the weekend rotation for a bit." - perfectly acceptable

"(Player Y) is a waste of a scholarship." - This comment gets you banned.

I'm a new poster but this is why I love baseball and am looking forward to visiting EI during the season. In baseball if your team loses a mid-week game or a non-conference game to a team that you are probably better than you say something like "we couldn't get our bats going today" or "our pitchers couldn't locate his pitches today and the other team hit him"> In basketball or football if you lose a game to a team you shouldn't its "some changes in the coaching staff need to be made immediately" or "the players have no heart".

Thanks again, Wilson, for making EI a safe haven on Hogville. I don't even go to MMQ or JB, if we lose at FB or BB, to avoid the shrapnel.  :razorback:

This may not be the post that Wilson is talking about, but it's still a good post and thread started by Tuck.

You may only tell the communist Truth.

(1) The Great Red Army is supreme.

(2)  Non-patrons of the Great Red Army are kulaks.

Is it okay to say that I'm excited the hogs are going to Omaha?    I will hang up and listen.

These expectations of the posters shouldn't be too much to ask for those posting on other boards.

So youíre saying if youíre excited about Arkansas playing in the national championship, and come here do give your 2 cents, but youíre new and you donít agree with it or donít think itís ďintelligentĒ enough, youíre kicked off hogville??

Thatís like saying youíre business is expanding, but any new customers arenít allowed to suggest new ideas for the business or theyíll be asked to leave and never shop there again...

Iím probably gonna get kicked off HV for expressing my opinion at a new and exciting forum for me.

Here, let me paraphrase the OP for you:

Donít be a douchenozzle.

If you are a douchnozzle, you wonít be here long.

Is that easier to understand?

Huh? You're seeing something that doesn't exist. Is it because you're truly curious and don't understand or are you trolling ?
