The Rules of Pacers Digest

Hello everyone,

Whether your are a long standing forum member or whether you have just registered today, it's a good idea to read and review the rules below so that you have a very good idea of what to expect when you come to Pacers Digest.

A quick note to new members: Your posts will not immediately show up when you make them. An administrator has to approve at least your first post before the forum software will later upgrade your account to the status of a fully-registered member. This usually happens within a couple of hours or so after your post(s) is/are approved, so you may need to be a little patient at first.

Why do we do this? So that it's more difficult for spammers (be they human or robot) to post, and so users who are banned cannot immediately re-register and start dousing people with verbal flames.

Below are the rules of Pacers Digest. After you have read them, you will have a very good sense of where we are coming from, what we expect, what we don't want to see, and how we react to things.

Rule #1

Pacers Digest is intended to be a place to discuss basketball without having to deal with the kinds of behaviors or attitudes that distract people from sticking with the discussion of the topics at hand. These unwanted distractions can come in many forms, and admittedly it can sometimes be tricky to pin down each and every kind that can rear its ugly head, but we feel that the following examples and explanations cover at least a good portion of that ground and should at least give people a pretty good idea of the kinds of things we actively discourage:

"Anyone who __________ is a liar / a fool / an idiot / a blind homer / has their head buried in the sand / a blind hater / doesn't know basketball / doesn't watch the games"

"People with intelligence will agree with me when I say that __________"

"Only stupid people think / believe / do ___________"

"I can't wait to hear something from PosterX when he/she sees that **insert a given incident or current event that will have probably upset or disappointed PosterX here**"

"He/she is just delusional"

"This thread is stupid / worthless / embarrassing"

"I'm going to take a moment to point and / laugh at PosterX / GroupOfPeopleY who thought / believed *insert though/belief here*"

"Remember when PosterX said OldCommentY that no longer looks good? "

In general, if a comment goes from purely on topic to something 'ad hominem' (personal jabs, personal shots, attacks, flames, however you want to call it, towards a person, or a group of people, or a given city/state/country of people), those are most likely going to be found intolerable.

We also dissuade passive aggressive behavior. This can be various things, but common examples include statements that are basically meant to imply someone is either stupid or otherwise incapable of holding a rational conversation. This can include (but is not limited to) laughing at someone's conclusions rather than offering an honest rebuttal, asking people what game they were watching, or another common problem is Poster X will say "that player isn't that bad" and then Poster Y will say something akin to "LOL you think that player is good". We're not going to tolerate those kinds of comments out of respect for the community at large and for the sake of trying to just have an honest conversation.

Now, does the above cover absolutely every single kind of distraction that is unwanted? Probably not, but you should by now have a good idea of the general types of things we will be discouraging. The above examples are meant to give you a good feel for / idea of what we're looking for. If something new or different than the above happens to come along and results in the same problem (that being, any other attitude or behavior that ultimately distracts from actually just discussing the topic at hand, or that is otherwise disrespectful to other posters), we can and we will take action to curb this as well, so please don't take this to mean that if you managed to technically avoid saying something exactly like one of the above examples that you are then somehow off the hook.

That all having been said, our goal is to do so in a generally kind and respectful way, and that doesn't mean the moment we see something we don't like that somebody is going to be suspended or banned, either. It just means that at the very least we will probably say something about it, quite possibly snipping out the distracting parts of the post in question while leaving alone the parts that are actually just discussing the topics, and in the event of a repeating or excessive problem, then we will start issuing infractions to try to further discourage further repeat problems, and if it just never seems to improve, then finally suspensions or bans will come into play. We would prefer it never went that far, and most of the time for most of our posters, it won't ever have to.

A slip up every once and a while is pretty normal, but, again, when it becomes repetitive or excessive, something will be done. Something occasional is probably going to be let go (within reason), but when it starts to become habitual or otherwise a pattern, odds are very good that we will step in.

There's always a small minority that like to push people's buttons and/or test their own boundaries with regards to the administrators, and in the case of someone acting like that, please be aware that this is not a court of law, but a private website run by people who are simply trying to do the right thing as they see it. If we feel that you are a special case that needs to be dealt with in an exceptional way because your behavior isn't explicitly mirroring one of our above examples of what we generally discourage, we can and we will take atypical action to prevent this from continuing if you are not cooperative with us.

Also please be aware that you will not be given a pass simply by claiming that you were 'only joking,' because quite honestly, when someone really is just joking, for one thing most people tend to pick up on the joke, including the person or group that is the target of the joke, and for another thing, in the event where an honest joke gets taken seriously and it upsets or angers someone, the person who is truly 'only joking' will quite commonly go out of his / her way to apologize and will try to mend fences. People who are dishonest about their statements being 'jokes' do not do so, and in turn that becomes a clear sign of what is really going on. It's nothing new.

In any case, quite frankly, the overall quality and health of the entire forum's community is more important than any one troublesome user will ever be, regardless of exactly how a problem is exhibiting itself, and if it comes down to us having to make a choice between you versus the greater health and happiness of the entire community, the community of this forum will win every time.

Lastly, there are also some posters, who are generally great contributors and do not otherwise cause any problems, who sometimes feel it's their place to provoke or to otherwise 'mess with' that small minority of people described in the last paragraph, and while we possibly might understand why you might feel you WANT to do something like that, the truth is we can't actually tolerate that kind of behavior from you any more than we can tolerate the behavior from them. So if we feel that you are trying to provoke those other posters into doing or saying something that will get themselves into trouble, then we will start to view you as a problem as well, because of the same reason as before: The overall health of the forum comes first, and trying to stir the pot with someone like that doesn't help, it just makes it worse. Some will simply disagree with this philosophy, but if so, then so be it because ultimately we have to do what we think is best so long as it's up to us.

If you see a problem that we haven't addressed, the best and most appropriate course for a forum member to take here is to look over to the left of the post in question. See underneath that poster's name, avatar, and other info, down where there's a little triangle with an exclamation point (!) in it? Click that. That allows you to report the post to the admins so we can definitely notice it and give it a look to see what we feel we should do about it. Beyond that, obviously it's human nature sometimes to want to speak up to the poster in question who has bothered you, but we would ask that you try to refrain from doing so because quite often what happens is two or more posters all start going back and forth about the original offending post, and suddenly the entire thread is off topic or otherwise derailed. So while the urge to police it yourself is understandable, it's best to just report it to us and let us handle it. Thank you!

All of the above is going to be subject to a case by case basis, but generally and broadly speaking, this should give everyone a pretty good idea of how things will typically / most often be handled.

Rule #2

If the actions of an administrator inspire you to make a comment, criticism, or express a concern about it, there is a wrong place and a couple of right places to do so.

The wrong place is to do so in the original thread in which the administrator took action. For example, if a post gets an infraction, or a post gets deleted, or a comment within a larger post gets clipped out, in a thread discussing Paul George, the wrong thing to do is to distract from the discussion of Paul George by adding your off topic thoughts on what the administrator did.

The right places to do so are:

A) Start a thread about the specific incident you want to talk about on the Feedback board. This way you are able to express yourself in an area that doesn't throw another thread off topic, and this way others can add their two cents as well if they wish, and additionally if there's something that needs to be said by the administrators, that is where they will respond to it.

B) Send a private message to the administrators, and they can respond to you that way.

If this is done the wrong way, those comments will be deleted, and if it's a repeating problem then it may also receive an infraction as well.

Rule #3

If a poster is bothering you, and an administrator has not or will not deal with that poster to the extent that you would prefer, you have a powerful tool at your disposal, one that has recently been upgraded and is now better than ever: The ability to ignore a user.

When you ignore a user, you will unfortunately still see some hints of their existence (nothing we can do about that), however, it does the following key things:

A) Any post they make will be completely invisible as you scroll through a thread.

B) The new addition to this feature: If someone QUOTES a user you are ignoring, you do not have to read who it was, or what that poster said, unless you go out of your way to click on a link to find out who it is and what they said.

To utilize this feature, from any page on Pacers Digest, scroll to the top of the page, look to the top right where it says 'Settings' and click that. From the settings page, look to the left side of the page where it says 'My Settings', and look down from there until you see 'Edit Ignore List' and click that. From here, it will say 'Add a Member to Your List...' Beneath that, click in the text box to the right of 'User Name', type in or copy & paste the username of the poster you are ignoring, and once their name is in the box, look over to the far right and click the 'Okay' button. All done!

Rule #4

Regarding infractions, currently they carry a value of one point each, and that point will expire in 31 days. If at any point a poster is carrying three points at the same time, that poster will be suspended until the oldest of the three points expires.

Rule #5

When you share or paste content or articles from another website, you must include the URL/link back to where you found it, who wrote it, and what website it's from. Said content will be removed if this doesn't happen.

An example:

If I copy and paste an article from the Indianapolis Star website, I would post something like this:

http://www.linktothearticlegoeshere.com/article
Title of the Article
Author's Name
Indianapolis Star

Rule #6

We cannot tolerate illegal videos on Pacers Digest. This means do not share any links to them, do not mention any websites that host them or link to them, do not describe how to find them in any way, and do not ask about them. Posts doing anything of the sort will be removed, the offenders will be contacted privately, and if the problem becomes habitual, you will be suspended, and if it still persists, you will probably be banned.

The legal means of watching or listening to NBA games are NBA League Pass Broadband (for US, or for International; both cost money) and NBA Audio League Pass (which is free). Look for them on NBA.com.

Rule #7

Provocative statements in a signature, or as an avatar, or as the 'tagline' beneath a poster's username (where it says 'Member' or 'Administrator' by default, if it is not altered) are an unwanted distraction that will more than likely be removed on sight. There can be shades of gray to this, but in general this could be something political or religious that is likely going to provoke or upset people, or otherwise something that is mean-spirited at the expense of a poster, a group of people, or a population.

It may or may not go without saying, but this goes for threads and posts as well, particularly when it's not made on the off-topic board (Market Square).

We do make exceptions if we feel the content is both innocuous and unlikely to cause social problems on the forum (such as wishing someone a Merry Christmas or a Happy Easter), and we also also make exceptions if such topics come up with regards to a sports figure (such as the Lance Stephenson situation bringing up discussions of domestic abuse and the law, or when Jason Collins came out as gay and how that lead to some discussion about gay rights).

However, once the discussion seems to be more/mostly about the political issues instead of the sports figure or his specific situation, the thread is usually closed.

Rule #8

We prefer self-restraint and/or modesty when making jokes or off topic comments in a sports discussion thread. They can be fun, but sometimes they derail or distract from a topic, and we don't want to see that happen. If we feel it is a problem, we will either delete or move those posts from the thread.

Rule #9

Generally speaking, we try to be a "PG-13" rated board, and we don't want to see sexual content or similarly suggestive content. Vulgarity is a more muddled issue, though again we prefer things to lean more towards "PG-13" than "R". If we feel things have gone too far, we will step in.

Rule #10

We like small signatures, not big signatures. The bigger the signature, the more likely it is an annoying or distracting signature.

Rule #11

Do not advertise anything without talking about it with the administrators first. This includes advertising with your signature, with your avatar, through private messaging, and/or by making a thread or post.

  • Pacers: Trade Deadline Countdown, Who's on the Block?

    http://alwaysmillertime.com/2012/02/...-on-the-block/

    Home » Pacers » Trade Deadline Countdown-Who’s on the block?

    With a couple days off for the Pacers, I thought I’d introduce a series of stories tracking potential trades Indiana could make between now and the March 15th deadline. With roughly a month to go before things start to get frantic, and down to the wire, Indiana will continue finding itself involved in nearly every major trade conversation out there, due to the approximate $14 million the team has in cap space (when you consider James Posey’s off-season amnesty waiver). Before we really delve into realistic trade scenarios that may help the blue and gold, let’s take a trip around the league and see who’s available.


    Devin Harris, PG Utah


    February 13, 2012; New Orleans, LA, USA; Utah Jazz point guard Devin Harris (5) drives past New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Marco Belinelli (8) and small forward Trevor Ariza (1) during the first quarter of a game at the New Orleans Arena. Mandatory Credit: Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

    Contract: 2 years at $17.8 million

    Breakdown: There have been some passing mentions of Harris in several trade scenarios involving the Jazz, which doesn’t make a ton of sense need wise. Utah is pretty thin on star point guard talent but has plenty of frontcourt assets. Earl Watson has proven a more reliable offensive floor general for the Jazz than has Harris. Harris still technically starts, but is averaging fewer minutes per game than he has since his second season, and seeing some near career-low win share and PER numbers, to go along with a pretty anemic scoring average. He’ll be 29 in a week, and seemingly can no longer do the one thing he’s always been pretty good at: scoring. Naturally the Jazz could be looking to dump him, and he may be looking for a change of scenery as well.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 40%

    While Harris looks like a prime trade candidate from Utah’s perspective, he’s certainly not helping his value right now. It may take a transformation to “the expiring contract of Devin Harris” for him to garner any interest, and that won’t happen until next year.


    Steve Nash, PG PHO

    Feb. 15, 2012; Phoenix, AZ, USA; Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash (13) puts up a shot as Atlanta Hawks forward Vladimir Radmanovic (77) defends during the second half at the US Airways Center. The Hawks defeated the Suns, 101-99. Mandatory Credit: Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE.

    Contract: 1 year (expiring), $11.6 million

    Breakdown: The Suns have all but told Nash that he ought to explore trade options, but there have also been whispers that they’re working out a two year deal for the 38 year-old to retire on. Considering how loyal Nash has been throughout the whole process, it’s unlikely he’ll ever push for a trade. But contending teams interested in adding the still-effective future Hall of Famer, if only for a rental period, may make Phoenix an offer they can’t refuse.

    Likelihood of getting traded: %55

    There are a handful of teams that would probably overpay for Nash just so he can be that “missing piece,” and another handful who would offer fair value if he agreed to sign at least a two-year extension this summer. That may be the deciding factor. For instance, if you were Steve Nash would you extend with, say, the Charlotte Bobcats?


    Chris Kaman, PF/C NOR

    Contract: 1 year (expiring) $14 million

    Breakdown: Kaman was the most obvious candidate on this list because, well, he was already offered in vague trade scenarios earlier in the season, whereupon New Orleans benched him, asked for too much for him, withdrew him from the market, then let him play (pretty darn well)…in that inexplicable order. After showcasing that he’s still a viable, potentially start-worthy NBA big, Kaman could, and should find himself back on the trade block soon, assuming the ever-so-injury plagued Hornets can even field a roster without him. They’ll be looking for young pieces and/or draft picks, and will receive calls from the usual suspects. Other teams, without the cap space to absorb his pro-rated, yet still huge contract (like Miami) will simply wait and hope Kaman gets bought out so they can sign him for dirt cheap, which is as unfair as it sounds (remember, the NBA owns and partially operates the Hornets).

    Likelihood of getting traded: 65%

    This was obviously near 90% a few weeks ago, but with the buy-out talk, and New Orleans “withdrawing” Kaman from trade consideration, there’s some degree of confusion as to whether the league wants to: A. get something for Kaman in a salary dump (while also saving a ton of money off of the Hornets’ books for a potential buyer) or B. Get nothing for him (except for maybe a few saved million in a buy out) while simultaneously hand-picking a starting center for their (the NBA’s) best team. Remains to be seen.


    O.J. Mayo, SG MEM

    Feb 6, 2012; Memphis, TN, USA; Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard O.J. Mayo (32) celebrates after shooting a three point shot during the game against the San Antonio Spurs at the FedEx Forum. The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 89-84. Mandatory Credit: Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

    Contract: 1 year, $5.6 million (expiring, $7.4 million qualifier)

    Breakdown: Mayo’s name has surfaced in several trade rumors since this time last year, when he was oh-so-close to being traded to the Pacers for Josh McRoberts and (maybe?) a pick. Since then, the Grizzlies have moved him on and off the market, and though his stats have tailed off to the same sort of disappointing levels they hit last year, he’s found his niche as a bench scorer for Memphis. Either way, he’s expendable and has garnered attention in trades over the last calendar year.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 33%

    It all depends, I guess, on how hard the Pacers, or maybe the Timberwolves pursue Mayo. If either of these teams are willing to overpay for him, the Grizzlies may change their strange “untouchable” market lable.


    Stephen Jackson, SG/SF MIL

    Contract: 2 years, $19.3 million

    Breakdown: Jackson has fallen out of favor, and out of the rotation in Milwaukee. Luckily he is yet to charge the stands and fight any fans, nor involve himself in any gun-related altercations. If only the Pacers were so lucky seven years ago. Jackson has talent, but his age, contract and his combustible personality may combine to doom any realistic trade talks.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 15%

    Jackson may go the tragic way of the too-late-to-amnesty buyout. If that happens, look for him to latch on to a contender (remember, he has title experience). But with all his baggage, the Bucks are going to have to take back a bad contract or two just to get rid of him. Hmm…sounds somehow familiar…


    Chris Andersen, PF/C DEN

    Feb 15, 2012; Dallas, TX, USA; Denver Nuggets center Chris Andersen (11) reacts after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks during the second quarter at the American Airlines Center. Mandatory Credit: Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

    Contract: 3 years, $13.5 million

    Breakdown: Rumblings around the Twitter-sphere are that Denver would have no problem cutting “The Birdman” loose for the right price. Though he’s gotten some burn lately, once Nene fully recovers from his injury, sources speculate Andersen may be just as available on the open market as fellow Western Conference big man Chris Kaman.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 40%

    Andersen’s contract obviously isn’t as attractive, length-wise, as Kaman’s. But for a 33 year old he’s got low tread on his tires, and still provides plenty of defense/hustle (he averaged over 5 blocks per 48 minutes as recently at 2008-09!). Someone will want him. It’ll just depend on Denver’s asking price.


    Pau Gasol, PF LAL

    Contract: 3 years, $57 million

    Breakdown: We know Gasol is on the market, thanks to the now-famous vetoed trade that almost sent him to Houston this off-season. It’s also well-documented that LA needs point guard help. Barring the unexpected event that their current flirtation with Gilbert Arenas ends well, Gasol could be dangled again for a legit floor general, or as part of a three-way that brings one to LA.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 10%

    There’s just too much money there. The original Hornets-Rockets-Lakers deal was sort of unfair, but at least it was more fair than the trade that originally brought Gasol to LA. Don’t expect the veteran to be involved in another lopsided one like that.


    Rajon Rondo, PG BOS

    Feb 09, 2012; Boston, MA, USA; Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo (9) warms up before the start of the game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the TD Garden. Mandatory Credit: David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

    Contract: 4 years, $46 million

    Breakdown: Rondo is a name that we always hear in trade rumors because, for whatever reason, Danny Ainge just doesn’t seem that attached to him. Rondo’s known personality issues aside, he’s one of the five or six best point guards in the league, and is fairly-paid. There are several teams that would gladly overpay for his services, and it looks like it’s only a matter of time.

    Likelihood of getting traded: 25%

    It may be only a matter of time, but that time won’t be this season, unless a team like Indiana, with salary cap space, makes a run at acquiring him in a salary dump where they give up a pick or two.

    All for getting a guy like Rondo. A great point guard makes his teammates better.
    First time in a long time, I've been happy with the team that was constructed, and now they struggle. I blame the coach.

      Another person I'd be interested in is Eric Bledsoe. Maybe not a starter, but definitely as a backup. Dudes not even playing in Clipperland.

      Also, with OKC locking up Westbrook, I wonder if they'd be willing to part with Reggie Jackson. Dude could be a lockdown defender for a backup.

                        some funny ****

                        He's 13 and also has a BMW, a mink coat and crib in giest jk


                        Im all for going for Rondo or D Will, or staying put

                        Im most nervous about Roy and his true worth compared to market value. If some team swoops in with a max or close to max offer, might have to pass

                        OJ only if its no more than a first and a player like lou or pendegrass

                        If Im LA though I would seriously consider making a play for S Jax. LA has no fire power and Bucks , I know want to get rid of him. Mike Brown knows Jax and can probably keep him focused , and a focused Jax at the 3 in LA, would help their chances at getting to Western Confernce Finals
                        Sittin on top of the world!

                          Breakdown: Rondo is a name that we always hear in trade rumors because, for whatever reason, Danny Ainge just doesn’t seem that attached to him. Rondo’s known personality issues aside, he’s one of the five or six best point guards in the league, and is fairly-paid. There are several teams that would gladly overpay for his services, and it looks like it’s only a matter of time.

                          Likelihood of getting traded: 0%

                          It may be only a matter of time, but that time won’t be this season, unless a team like Indiana, with salary cap space, makes a run at acquiring him in a salary dump where they give up a pick or two.

                          Garbage players get 1st round picks, (WTF)! All of the NBA must hate the Pacers! LOL

                            Also, with OKC locking up Westbrook, I wonder if they'd be willing to part with Reggie Jackson. Dude could be a lockdown defender for a backup.
                            trading for Reggie Jackson would be my dream come true from last years draft. But I think Eric Maynor going down killed that dream for this year at least. Reggie is getting better every game as the backup I am still really liking his development so far.

                            He will be a great pg in a few years if he keeps developing like he should.

                            EDIT: If we would of traded back and drafted him and Nikola Mirotic that would of been my dream draft. I love both of their games Nikola is gonna be a really good player IMO.

                            IMO We may be able to trade for Reggie in a few years if he plays well and the Thunder pull a George Hill and trade him because they cant afford to resign him.

                            EDIT: anyone eles think DJ Augustine gets traded?? He is due for a pretty big pay day this off season and Kemba is there and is cheaper and may be who they view as the long term starter. They would be smart to pull a George Hill trade and trade him oppsose to letting him walk in free agency it would be smart IMO IF Jordan traded him.

                              I think Gasol's chances of being traded are significantly higher than 10%.
