All, There are few forums or subforums on BigSoccer better suited for long form, passionate discussion than The Beautiful Game. Indeed, in the early years of the site this was the go-to thread for learning a great deal about players, teams, fan bases, competitions, leagues, and the like. It drew some of the most knowledgeable people I have ever come across. And the key characteristic was almost always respect for the other opinion because participants generally acknowledged there was more than one position that could be taken. We've let almost all of that slip away through lax enforcement of the site's Terms of Service. Part of this is that the moderators have not wanted this to be necessary; we've wanted people to approach the forum like they used to. And part of it is that many people want the ToS enforced on the other guy but see themselves as innocent, and the complaining that befalls comme and/or moishe and/or me on the rare times I have ducked in has been unwelcome. The Site Admins have taken note, and things will change effective immediately. The Super Moderators will take an active role in re-establishing what might be termed decorum - meaning @dark knight and @bungadiri and @Horsehead and myself for sure, and perhaps @el-choul as well - so that space for @comme and @Moishe can be created. You'll see a post here from @dark knight laying out some specific ground rules, and away we'll go. In the meantime I will re-post what comme posted a couple of months ago but that got ignored by many people.
