Bucs fans - we've noticed that the message boards are starting to get way out of hand with some message board rule infractions. We do our best to warn posters about violations before suspending or banning them from the board community, but that doesn't seem to be working as of late. That said, we will be enforcing the board rules in a stricter manner from this point forward.

Your thoughts are welcome here, but each of you need to abide by the board rules and help us keep this forum fun for all to post in. We realize emotions often play a role in posting, especially after games, but you can -- and need to -- get your point across without violating the board rules. Thanks in advance for abiding by the PewterReport.com message board rules.

Here are the message board rules that each poster is required to comply with. Please re-read and abide by them accordingly. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

PewterReport.com Message Board Members,

PEWTERREPORT.COM MESSAGE BOARD RULES

1. No profanity (implied or direct) or abusive language. It simply won't be tolerated on the PewterReport.com message board forums.

2. Feel free to sound off on opinions, but personal attacks on your fellow board members, players, coaches, media members or any other person or organization is not allowed. Referencing gender, siblings, and any sexual inuendo has no merit in the PewterReport.com message board forums and will not be tolerated.

3. Name-calling against your fellow board members, players, coaches, media members or any other person or organization is not allowed.

4.  Racist, religious and sexual orientation comments or insinuations are not allowed within this board forum. There are many ethnic groups within the message board community and all should receive the same courtesy and consideration.

5. Spreading rumors about your fellow posters, players, coaches, media members or any other person or organization will not be tolerated. If you claim to know something you better provide proof (for example, a link). Otherwise, be prepared to have your post deleted without warning in addition to other potential consequences.

6. Absolutely no trolling or flaming is allowed. Bucs fans and foes are welcome to create discussions and contribute, but mindless flaming will not be tolerated and those posts will be deleted without warning.

7. Spamming, otherwise known as purposely promoting other Internet websites/businesses in an effort to drive away traffic from PewterReport.com will not be tolerated. Providing links to newsworthy stories is one thing, but purposely promoting a business or website on PewterReport.com's message boards with links or signatures will not be tolerated.

8. Attaching photos/links in posts is acceptable, provided they are not of sexually explicit or profane in nature and are reasonable in size.

9. Sharing content from Pewter Insider articles is strictly prohibited unless it is done in the Article Commenting feature in Pewter Insider articles or on the Pewter Insider message board. Sharing premium content with non-subscribers is strictly forbidden. Persons in violation of this forum regulation will be subject to immediate termination of their Pewter Report and/or Pewter Insider subscription and will not receive a refund. Pewter Report also forbids the posting of other websites' premium content in our forums.

10. Being a paid Pewter Report/Pewter Insider subscriber does not make you immune to the enforcement of the PewterReport.com message board rules. Paid subscribers have rights, but this is an interactive forum. You pay to go to the movies, the theatre and sports events, too, but if you behave badly enough you will get thrown out of those venues, paid patron or not. The same type of reasoning applies here.

One final request, show some levity in your differences of opinion on topics. Posters will have differing opinions on certain topics, which is what makes the forums entertaining. Just because you have a differing opinion does not make it right or wrong. Respect all opinions as you would want your own to be respected.
