Administrivia: Rules of Conduct

With Opening Day just around the corner, it’s probably time to point folks to the Ducksnorts Comments Policy. Discussion is encouraged around these parts, so if you’d like to participate, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our policy.

Here is the quick-and-dirty version:

  • Ducksnorts is a daily column, not a message board. It’s more like my house than a railway station.
  • Attack positions, not people.
  • Comments should advance the discussion in some way.
  • Any comment may be deleted at any time; any individual may be banned from commenting. (Hint: These almost never happen.)
  • Off-topic comments are welcome within reason.
  • No profanity.
  • If you are selling or promoting something, please clear it with me first.
  • Comments that contain multiple outbound links will be placed in the moderation queue before being published. (This is an anti-spam measure.)
  • Respect copyright laws. Don’t reproduce entire articles (or even large chunks); instead, provide only brief excerpts and/or a link that we can follow.

Again, this is a very condensed version. Be sure to read and understand the entire Ducksnorts Comments Policy. Note also that this policy isn’t open to debate. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me directly and we’ll talk.

Thanks, and Happy Easter!

  1. The Blue Jays released Reed Johnson: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2008/03/reed-johnson-no.html

    Is this something the team should explore? I don’t really know anything about him, but does he provide something that one of Gerut/P-Mac/Hairston/Headley/Crabbe does not?
