Community Guidelines

This site is a community of fans. Treat each other with respect, even in disagreement, and all will be well.

Our aim is to create, promote and establish written content for the means of entertainment and enjoyment of the community, and we invite the community to comment on them. We expect comments to be respectful, meaningful and guided by the spirit of engaging conversation.

Art Rooney Jr. called our little sandbox one defined by 'thoughtful discussion with a sense of history.' I don't think we take ourselves seriously enough to achieve that level of conversation at all times, but we can all do our part to make sure everyone's welcome to talk about the Steelers and the greatest game on Earth, including fans of other teams.

We reserve the right to ban members for comments showing blatant and profane disrespect or abuse toward another reader or the entire community. Some of those reasons can include, but are not limited to: race, gender, religion creed, sexual orientation, belief structure, point of view or opinion, or anything else site management deems to be in violation of respectful conversation boundaries. All are entitled to participate in the comments section of this web site, but our responsibility is to ensure a community free from abusive, vulgar and hateful comments.

We reserve the right to ban for the creation of duplicate accounts for any reason, particularly if the second account is created to avoid a ban or suspension. We will treat those on a per-case basis.

We also reserve the right to ban, suspend or re-activate members on a per-case basis. The Managing Editor will have final say over bans, suspensions and re-activations.

Please, no trolling (the act of posting inflammatory and reactionary comments with the purpose of engaging in attacks on members of the community or a team in general). Your comments should have a purpose, and that purpose is not to antagonize community members. We reserve the right to ban users for trolling.

Please, treat others with respect, and that same respect will be returned to you. Thank you for your support, and please let the managing editor or a moderator know if you have any questions or issues.
