Message Board Rules

The accepted standards of conduct in our message board communities are determined by the administrators and owners. Registered users agree that Masonhoops has the right to enforce these standards, including deletion of posts, or blacklisting/banning users.

Behavior that is restricted on the message boards may include, but is not limited to:

  1. Personal attacks or insults on ANYONE (including but not limited to athletes, recruits, coaches or administrators, other users of the boards, beat writers, Site staff, et al). This includes material that defames (slanders), abuses, or threatens others or site sponsors. In addition, this includes statements that are bigoted, hateful, or racially offensive. No political or religious discussion.
  2. Posts with the sole intent of eliciting negative responses, also referred to as “pot-stirring”, “trolling”, or “flaming”. If you post in a fashion that otherwise abides by the terms of service, but continually causes anger in the message board community, moderators and administrators will use discretion as needed.
  3. Rumors concerning an individual's private life, when said rumors are not a matter of public record. This includes ANYONE (including but not limited to athletes, recruits, parents of athletes/recruits, coaches or administrators, other users of the boards, beat writers, Site staff, et al).
  4. Material that advocates illegal activity or discusses illegal activities with the intent to commit them.
  5. Posts containing material that contains vulgar, obscene or indecent language or images, embedded pictures that are pornographic in nature, or links to pornographic web sites. Other sexually suggestive pictures and links to inappropriate web sites may also be deleted at moderator or admin discretion.
  6. Advertising or any form of commercial solicitation. This includes links to commercial web sites posted by individuals who are affiliated with said web site and are seeking to direct traffic to their web site from this message board (i.e., “spamming the message board”). If in doubt as to whether or not your post is a solicitation or “spam,” please email Site staff for clarification.
  7. Reposting of tweets or other social media posts without comment that provides context for discussion and clear connection to the topic.
  8. Unauthorized copyrighted material, including such items as scans of copyrighted material or posts of subscription-based web articles.
  9. Posts or posting habits which are otherwise deemed inappropriate by Site staff. Moderators and administrators have the ability to use judgment to enforce rules as necessary.
