      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Not to get technical however "pitbull" describes a dog that fights in pits. Pit Bull is a term commonly used to describe several breeds of dog in the Molosser family that were historically used for dog fighting. The breeds most often placed in this category are the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. In the media the term is vague and may include other breeds with similar physical characteristics, such as the Perro de Presa Canario, Cane Corso, Dogo Argentino, Alano Espanol, Japanese Tosa, Dogue de Bordeaux, Cordoba Fighting Dog, Bull Terrier, Antebellum Bulldog, Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, American Bulldog, Boxer, Valley Bulldog, Olde English Bulldogge, Renascence Bulldogge, and Banter Bulldogge. When looking at the statistics how many deaths are by each breed? I bet it falls in line with other breeds. "The problem with statistics appears to be that there is no consistency in where the figures are obtained, nor are there variables included in most studies. Some studies use AKC numbers, some use HSUS numbers and others use CDC&P numbers. Few include causes or contributing circumstances to the attacks, nor are the total numbers of dogs in a certain breed taken into consideration. There is no national recording system for non-fatal dog bites in the United States."[5] A 2008 study of 6,000 dog owners who were interviewed indicated that smaller breed dogs were more likely to be “genetically predisposed towards aggressive behaviour.” Pit bulls were rated as “average or below average for hostility towards strangers.” [6] The study also indicated that bites from larger dogs were likely to be more damaging and reported more frequently, giving the impression that larger dogs are more aggressive.

    I know....... but I had to post this. I love sailboats, pitbulls (mine is a boxer mix), guns and other things society looks unfavorably on and hate people being unjust because of hearsay and the media. I do remember hearing this on the radio the other day. This is statistics and reported bite incedents. So unless the other top breeds are also "outlawed" i'd say you can fight a ban like this. This list is pretty suprising. MT Top Ten Most Aggressive Dogs July 15, 2008 · Print This Article I think most of us would agree that dogs are not born aggressive, they are made that way by the environment in which they are raised. However, there are some breeds that are more prone to aggresion than others. The Daily Telegraph in Great Britain reports on a study published by Applied Animal Behavior Science, ranking 33 breeds of dogs according to their owners’ answers to behavioral questions. 10. German Shepherd - I thought this one would be higher, because of their use in police work. 9. Border Collie - I can see this. They face off against sheep much larger than they are every day. 8. English Springer Spaniel 7. Beagle - This one surprised me. My beagle demonstrates every submission posture known to man. 6. Pit Bull - Popular legend has it that these dogs are the most aggressive but 5. Australian Cattle Dog 4. Akita 3. Jack Russell Terrier 2. Chihuahua 1. Dachshund - one in five owners reported that their dachshund had tried to bite strangers, and one in 12 reported that their dachshund had tried to bite them!

    Gotta tell you when I moved to seattle from michigan 15 years ago the seahawks were a similiar team then we got money, a good coach and POW superbowl team. I still LOVE my lions!! but the seabirds are my hometown team and its so much more fun to be in a nfl city thats winning. My advice......move out of michigan to a winning nfl city and love the lions on the inside............
