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:
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

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.

    Chris Bosh - Lower Abdominal Strain (out indefinitely)
    Jared Wade: Defending the Heat’s Pick-and-Roll and Flummoxing Dwyane Wade

    I’m not sure when the pick-and-roll was invented, but it was probably about three weeks
    after James Naismith hung a peach basket on a pole. It is among the most basic
    offensive actions a team can run and it has been a staple play of virtually every NBA
    team since the days of Bob Cousy. The reason: if run properly, it inevitably creates an
    advantage, at least temporarily, for the offense.

    There are many ways to defend the pick-and-roll. None of them work. Again, the offense
    always gets an advantage and while different defensive strategies can limit that edge in
    various ways, vulnerabilities remain. So the goal for the two defenders involved in the
    play is to react to the screen and then recover quickly enough to ensure that both
    offensive players are corralled into areas where they can do the least damage.

    In recent years, the prevailing defensive philosophy used against the pick-and-roll has
    been to blitz the ball handler and force him to give the ball up. I can’t say exactly when
    or why this became the norm, but it probably has to do with players like LeBron James,
    Dwayne Wade, Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook being so adept at going by big men
    in zero second flat and splitting any soft double teams. Players in the 1980s weren’t
    doing it like they can.

    Regardless of why, things done changed.

    Tom Thibodeau is the leader of the new school. As an assistant in Boston and now as a
    head coach in Chicago, he has implemented this “swarm the pick-and-roll” strategy to
    help his teams play some of the best defense the sport has ever seen. It is the anti-
    thesis of passively reacting to what the offensive team wants to accomplish in the pick-
    and-roll. The defense becomes the aggressor, swarming the man with the ball and
    rotating help defenders to stop the roll man from catching a pass and scoring at the rim.

    Throughout the first three games on their series against the Heat, the Pacers have not
    been doing this. They have instead done the exact opposite.

    As the ball-handler (usually LeBron or Wade and sometimes Mario Chalmers) comes off
    the screen, the big man does not run at him hard. He is barely even showing at all
    actually. He is just hanging back and maintaining a pool-cue-length distance in between
    himself and the guy with the ball.

    This accomplishes two things that fundamentally alter how the rest of the play will likely
    transpire. First, it makes it much harder for the ball-handler — no matter how fast and
    crafty he is as a penetrator — from getting all the way to the rim. The big man hanging
    back is essentially adopting a free safety mentality in which he won’t allow anyone to get
    past him. Of course, the penetrator can just try to go over or around, but especially when
    the defender is Roy Hibbert … good luck with that. He is 7’2″ and has been in a shot-
    blocking zone for weeks now.

    The other key difference with this strategy...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s

    3-on-3 preview: Heat-Pacers, Game 4

    In another installment of the Heat Index's 3-on-3 series, our writers give their takes
    on the storylines before Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals (ABC, 3:30 ET).

    1. Fact or Fiction: LeBron is right, Game 4 is a must-win for the Heat.

    Tom Haberstroh: Fiction. The "must-win" meme is the worst thing to happen in
    sports analysis since the basketball adaptation of the "closer" term. That may be a bit
    strong, but our casual acceptance that a non-elimination game is a "must-win" has
    gotten a bit out of control. If the Heat lose Sunday, they still have potentially two
    games remaining at home. This isn't do-or-die. Yet.

    Michael Wallace: Fiction. I know the point LeBron was trying to make, but I think
    in a literal fashion, when it comes to this situation, it's not true. Elimination games are
    must-win games. Neither team's season would end based on the outcome of Game 4. I
    actually believe this game is bigger for the Pacers' psyche. The Heat can't go in thinking
    this series is over if they don't win Sunday. Even if they're down 3-1, there's still a
    game in Miami on Tuesday. Which means there's still a chance to start a rally.

    Brian Windhorst: Fact. I think it is rather obvious that getting down 3-1 without
    Chris Bosh and with the Pacers getting more confident by the minute is not a recipe for
    victory. The difference between 3-1 and 2-2 obviously is vast, especially because it
    would give the Heat back the home-court advantage. The Heat players have a lot on the
    line here: reputations and futures and legacies. Way more than the Pacers.

    2. Fact or Fiction: D-Wade came off worse than Spoelstra in Game 3.

    Haberstroh: Fact. And that's a remarkable achievement by Wade considering that
    Heat fans were calling for Spoelstra's pink slip after the Pacers went up 7-0 during the
    Dexter Pittman Experiment of Game 3. And then sprinkle in the fact that Spoelstra had a
    heated argument with the team's most beloved star. And still, there's no question that
    Wade came off worse in Game 3. That's how awful Wade was in Thursday's game.

    Wallace: Fact. I asked Dwyane on Saturday if he felt he made a mistake by
    showing his frustrations in such a public fashion during that timeout blowup with
    Spoelstra. He said it was just the byproduct of a heated discussion during an intense
    time in the game. At the end of the day, I truly believe Dwyane was much madder with
    himself than anyone on that Heat bench. His body just wasn't cooperating. He lashed
    out. He looked bad doing it. Everyone insists it's behind them now.

    Windhorst: Fact. Spoelstra's Dexter Pittman experience and revolving door of
    subs was not exactly awe-inspiring. But Wade came off as petulant because of the way
    he was playing, especially his hard-to-explain effort level. Combined with his inexcusable
    flagrant foul in Game 2, Wade's attitude so far in this series has been has been poor.
    Including snapping at his coach at a crucial part of the game.

    3. Fact or Fiction: The Heat should still be favored in this series.

    Haberstroh: Fiction. In light of the Wade injury stuff, I've moved from toss-up to
    slight nod to the Pacers. I still think the Heat have a good chance of turning this around
    and beating the Pacers, but I don't find it to be a likely scenario anymore. Not with Bosh
    out. Not with Wade playing on one leg. I don't think this is an X's-and-O's problem as
    much as it is a physical one. Does Wade still have the burst in his step to be himself?
    I'm not sure. If he doesn't, it becomes a 1.5-on-8 ordeal.

    Wallace: Fiction. Call me crazy, but I consider it a 50-50 series right now. Yes,
    the Pacers have a 2-1 series lead. But I've seen the Heat rally from a 2-0 deficit in the
    Finals to beat Dallas in 2006. And I've seen Miami hold a 2-1 series lead over the Mavs
    last season in the Finals and squander it. I've always said the Heat seem to respond to
    adversity far better than prosperity. But without Chris Bosh available and with Wade
    ailing a bit, nothing less than their A-game will beat Indy.

    Windhorst: Fact. If they split in Indiana, which is still possible, then they will
    have done exactly what was expected of them and they will have control of the series.
    Because this is still within reach, they are not yet desperate. They lose Game 4, of
    course, then they become a heavy underdog. In short, it's a big game.

    John Bennett: A Look at Roy Hibbert's Career Night

    Eric Maroun: How Indiana Got Its Swagger Back

    So that happened, huh?

    I’d like to congratulate the Indiana Pacers on stealing a road playoff game against
    one of the best home teams in the NBA. It wasn’t pretty by any means and it seemed
    like both teams were giving the game away throughout the final couple minutes.
    However, a win is a win in the playoffs and even the poor play by Indiana down the
    stretch doesn’t change the fact that the series is now evened up at one game apiece.

    Prior to Game3 of the Pacers-Heat series, my friend John who came to the game
    with me asked who I thought would win. My political answer was either Indiana close
    or Miami big. I simply did not see Miami winning a close game on the road, and I
    certainlycould not fathom a reality where Indiana blew out the Heat. A little over
    three hours after John asked me for my prediction, the Pacers had routed the Heat
    94-75, and all of the sudden they find themselves up 2-1 in this series.

    Some random thoughts from the game:
    • Coming from someone who wrote an article months ago calling out the entire
      city of Indianapolis for not showing up to games and finishing with the fifth
      worst attendance in the NBA, the crowd last night absolutely brought it. The
      18,165 fans in attendance clad in yellow “Gold Swagger” shirts served as the
      poster child for the image the country should have when they think of Indiana
      as a basketball state. From the very beginning, it was apparent to everyone,
      fans and beat writers included, that this was going to be a playoff atmosphere.
    • Roy Hibbert was an absolute monster. When Dexter Pittman was announced
      as a starter, the gentleman sitting next to me, decked out in a white and black
      LeBron jersey, declared the game was over and Hibbert was going to have a
      big game. While the decision to start Pittman, a guy who had exactly zero
      meaningful playoff minutes logged in his career coming into last night, was
      curious, to declare even facetiously that the game was over before it started
      was laughable. Three minutes later, the Pittman experiment was over, Indiana
      was up 11-2, and I had stopped laughing. Hibbert’s final line ended up
      resembling everything that Pacers fans could possibly want from their All-Star
      center: 19 points, 18 rebounds, 5 blocks, and most likely one massive pay day
      coming his way in the near future.
    • Where do I even possibly begin with Dwyane Wade? The jokes have already
      been made that he’s in the spirit of the Indianapolis 500 by bringing the
      Brickyard to Banker’s Life Fieldhouse last night and how it was actually Miami
      fans, not Indiana fans, who now wish he had been suspended for Game 3. But
      there is something far more serious going on than his woeful five point, six
      turnover, 2-13 from the field performance. Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star
      tweeted at halftime that Wade might be sick while Brian Windhorst reports that
      Wade is being bothered by a lower leg issue that plagued him towards the end
      of the regular season. Whatever the issue is, it needs to get resolved as soon
      as possible because LeBron James simply cannot carry this team on his back
      at this point...READ MORE AT HARDWOOD PAROXYSM

                    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

                      Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
                      Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

                        Bill Kennedy
                        The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!).

                              Kennedy was great in those Police Academy films.
                              This is the darkest timeline.
