It's impossible to agree with -- or find value in -- EVERY post from EVERY poster. If that is what you need, you will never be happy in any community. Most are smart enough to only read the posters they value. Some feel as if it's their job to bully the posters they don't like. That is unacceptable. When posters prove they cannot respectfully disagree, they are placed upon the new DO-NOT-CONNECT list.Those on this list are not allowed to ever post in the other's thread -- or reference the other in any way at any time in the future.First time they break the DO-NOT-CONNECT rule, the result will be a ONE MONTH BAN.The second time is LIFETIME BAN. No exceptions.It should be clear that the site's tolerance is at zero for petty distractions. DO-NOT-CONNECT list:
The DO-NOT-CONNECT list will stop petty squabbles and bullies.
Awesome. Love it.

Wow. What an honor to be on the first list. Has tech ever considered an "ignore" function like most legitimate message boards have?
Good start at least for personal differences between posters but how about those choosing to enter threads an pop off with nonsense and derogatory remarks? How about the people that don't really give a crap about this forum and what its supposed to stand for? How about lifetime bans for all those running off the solid people and using this forum for nothing more than a dress rehearsal for the drama in which they seem to relish in. Those are the people that should be gone and never allowed to return.

So out of the 6 "do not connect list" one person makes up 50% of the board?
I get it, I will stay far away and not return to here.

Rob0721 is currently serving a ban for breaking the rules. If he breaks the rules again, he will receive a more severe ban. That enforcement is the job of the moderators (with the help of any poster who reports broken rules).
I am certain that a vast majority of posters find value in the forums beyond trying to police posters they do not like . . . for those who only care about policing posters they don't like, Pregame is not the place for them.

Chaos and disorder is the direct result of no rule or no rule enforcement. And what you allow will continue.so anyone leaving because of rules shouldn't be here period. Just my humble
I think we need to respect our rights of freedom of speech and let anyone say whatever the **** they want. good or bad, stupid or intelligent. case fuckin closed.
There are many forums with little to no rules . . . those who like such a place have many to choose from. That will not be Pregame.com.
I have found that most all sites band anyone anytime. The reason for this is simple. If sites allow there posters to bash each other they also have to allow posters to bash their sponsors, handicappers,etc and are susceptible to other outside companies trying to advertise on their site for free. It's a business decision not a freedom of speech decision.
I can understand and respect that. Let's just call it what it is. All in all, Pregame is great and an asset to the betting community. Case fuckin closed.
