Trolling versus Trash-talk on WCG

Each SBN blog has its own set of Community Guidelines, and are all moderated at the sole discretion of the site managers.  There are many SBN communities that embrace free-for-all environments, and others that like to keep things friendly and simple.

We try to stay in the middle of the pack here at WCG.  We DO welcome trash-talk as indicated in our Community Guidelines, but we have a zero tolerance approach to trolling.  Of course, there will be grey areas that will be handled individually, but we do try to stay objective in the process.

As long as trash-talk stays respectful, bring it on.  We have a very intelligent community that can stand up to the best of them.  But the minute insults start flying around, or personal attacks on our members/staff, we have to draw the line.

The expectation we place on ourselves at WCG: Treat people respectfully, and encourage intelligent football discussion.  The expectation we place on visitors: Treat people respectfully, and encourage intelligent football discussion.

Our own members will not be treated any differently than our visitors... 

Also, please keep in mind the flagging system.  If you feel someone is crossing the line, simply flag the comment and go on about your day.  We will review the flags and monitor the threads, and try to stay on top of fairly dealing with anything that crosses the line.

If anyone has any questions or concerns, please email me directly.  Don't clutter up our threads with drama and vitriol.

Thanks.
