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.

  • Odd Thoughts: Sinking the Clippers

    Legitimate is a word that gets bandied about like steam from a boiling tea kettle. Is this player a legitimate NBA player? Does that team have a legitimate interior defender? Does player X have a legitimate chance of scoring on player Y? You’ve heard them all before and honestly you will continue to hear them till you die. It’s just part of our culture in sports to evaluate and question if something is what we think it is. Sometimes the questions themselves are legitimate (Ha, see what I did there) and sometimes well sometimes they are just excuses for people looking for anything to tear someone or something down.

    Our current team is no stranger this line of questioning. Forget the fact that prior to today we were 15-1 there were several people, some even right here on this board who questioned how legitimate that record was. After all the entire east is weak, there are only a couple of good teams in the East and we happen to be one of the two and we have yet to face the other. Well after today’s win we are now 4-0 against the almighty West and while we still have several more hurdles to take I think that today’s win goes a long actually a very long way in answering some of those questions of legitimacy. The teams we have beaten in the West are all playoff caliber teams and we did play the Grizzlies prior to Gasol going down with injury and the Pelicans before Davis was injured. Frankly we just abused the T-Wolves and made them look like the lower level team that they strive to be every year.

    But this win today, that was something different altogether. This Clipper team is one of the darlings of the NBA, on TV all the time and they just love to talk about their big market teams especially when they do well.

    I’ll be honest I’ve only watched a couple of Clippers games this year but what I thought would happen prior to the game is pretty much what happened during the game. Every time I’ve seen them play it has always been vs. another of the West coast run and gun team where everybody was scoring with impunity and defense was some distant cousin that they talked about at family reunions.

    In other words they hadn’t run into a team like us. Make no mistake about it, we controlled this game. Yes they made runs; they are an NBA team after all and yes there were a couple of times that it looked scary and it was closer than it needed to be (we’ll talk shortly about why this was) but at the end of the day we controlled this game including the times where we almost didn’t.

    Our defense is a Python squeezing the life out of you. You can struggle and feel like your making progress all the while we tighten down and choke the life out of you. Sure some teams are going to get hot and hit their three’s, not much you can do on nights like that but more nights that won’t happen and as we control the paint and the boards teams just will continue to fall to our war machine.

    Now don’t get me wrong, we are not invincible and there are weaknesses that can be exploited. However most of our weaknesses are of our own doing and some teams will exploit that, which was the case today.

    How did this become closer than it was the rest of the day? Well a couple of reasons actually. First the Clippers are not without talent as obviously Chris Paul is a true star and Jamaal Crawford has made a career out of scoring against us. But to me the second reason was the biggest reason. We stopped making them play our game and sped up the offense making this more of a shootout towards the end. A pathetic shoot out mind you as neither team could hit from the floor but the game sped up. The reason I blame us and not credit them was because to me anyway it started on the offensive end as our guys were settling for jump shots and stopped trying to work the post or penetrate. This left a lot of misses out there that they were able to clear up and run with.

    But when push came to shove our defense clamped down again, our big men controlled the boards again and the end result is that we now set atop the world as the only 16-1 team in the NBA.

    No people we don’t have a rough schedule ahead of us, the teams that we are facing are going to be facing an absolute buzz saw of a team that will defend you like nothing you have ever experienced in you life.

    Or as Frank Vogel said in the post game. “We're the best defense in the world we trust our ability to get stops."

    Now I will issue a clarion call here, it’s not something that I want to overemphasize because so far for the year it has not been an issue but let’s be honest here. Today the bench sucked, it gave up a big lead and just could not get into any kind of offensive rhythm or flow at all. I trust that won’t happen again but for today the bench only gave you 17 points and did not really give our starters the extra time to rest that they have been getting. So in a way the fact that we got the day game and the Lakers/Blazers got the night game will work out well for us in the long run.

    Let’s do some grades:

    Paul George: A I’m tempted to give him an A- but I’ll stick with the A. He started off like he was going for 40 today but for whatever reason stopped hitting as the game went on. Hey it happens but the only thing that bothers me a little is that when things stop going he doesn’t really do anything to try and get to the line and while he is a good three point shooter I just don’t want him to fall in absolute love with that shot. 10 in a game is the upper threshold for me but I freely admit I just don’t like that shot. Other than that solid game on D and he had a very under rated pass to a cutting D. West for a layup. I think he could have done a little more on the boards but I’m not complaining about 6 from the small forward. This is coming off far more critical than I intended for it to. Paul was his normal *** kicking self.

    David West: A++ A man called horse or probably more appropriately he should be called a Brahma bull. God I love a player who plays better and smarter when he is madder. Blake Griffin made the mistake of trying to be tough with David West. You’ll have to forgive me for a few min. while I double over laughing at this….Okay I’m back. What an idiot. All he did was cause David West to have only the best game of the season and for him to absolutely abuse and use Griffin. BTW, someone should really tell Blake that the Griffin Force commercials for KIA are really…well the only think that comes to my mind is that they are doing for him what the “rock me tonight” video did for Billy Squire. Anyway David just threw the team on his back in the 3rd quarter and just laid waste to the Clippers leaving bodies in his path and small children frightened of the visage death that David was for the high flying Clippers.

    Can I take a break for a moment to tell you what a joke all of those high flying lobs are when facing a team like us? Sure just like anyone I want to be entertained and I like a good throw down as much as the next guy but honest to God that was just to overly dramatic for a team that never led at the end of any quarter. I’ve seen Gerald Green throw down some monster jams as well, didn’t fool me for a min into thinking he was a good basketball player and frankly Jordan’s high flying dunks don’t make me think he is a legitimate center either. He was used all day like a coat rack by Roy Hibbert and all anyone on any highlight show is going to want to talk about is the “lob city” dunks. Enjoy your highlights gentlemen I’ll take the win.

    Roy Hibbert: A I’m really only more upset in the fact that we didn’t go to Roy enough in the second half and let him slow the game down for us. I’ll say this politely here; DeAndre Jordan had as much a chance of guarding Roy Hibbert successfully as I have of guarding DeAndre Jordan. In other words none. Roy is bigger, stronger, and longer and has more basketball talent in his left elbow than Jordan has in his entire body. Sadly though Roy is going to be dropping in the shot blocking department as he has now had a few games of just one block. Again we are not about individual awards so as long as we win overall that’s all that matters but it would be nice for Roy to get that DPOY award and if he drops in the stat to far I’m afraid they won’t give it to him.

    Lance Stephenson: A Again tempted to go with the A- because I thought more than once in the second half he caused us to lose possession due to over dribbling and not giving the ball up soon enough. But overall once again when your two guard is grabbing 10 boards in a game to go along with 6 assists it’s hard to argue as long as everyone else is scoring. That time that he knocked that ball away from Jamaal Crawford for the steal in the second half though was superb.

    George Hill: A Kids got their backpacks today. Again I’m giving the A because as a unit they really deserve it however he had some uneven moments today. But again it’s hard to be harsh on the guy when he is having to guard Chris Paul. All but one of Jordan’s lobs came because Hill let Paul get around him, but again It’s Chris Paul so what can you really do about it. However to George’s credit he took it right to him on the other end in the 4th quarter and we all know that he is not afraid to take the big shot. Also while the stat line doesn’t really show it much I just thought he controlled the tempo of the game more when he was in there for the most part.

    C.J. Watson: C- really a bad game for him. Didn’t defend up to his normal standard and 1-6 from the field is not what we are looking for from him. Also I do realize that sometimes our offense is designed this way but I really would like to see him do something else other than just stand out there and fling 3 point shots. 5 of his 6 were from behind the stripe. He’s still a hell of an upgrade from last year but today just wasn’t his day.

    Luis Scola: C- A combination of David West being really hot today and an off day for Luis made me actually do the clock countdown for the bench that I haven’t done all season long today. Just not a strong performance from him today at all as he missed a couple of bunnies at the rim that he normally makes. Again still a massive upgrade from last season but today just wasn’t his day. I think he will make Portland pay for it though.

    Ian Mahinmi: C Meh, not good not bad. Just kind of there.

    Orlando Johnson Solomon Hill: C Developmental minutes. Neither did anything either great or bad.

    Okay one down several more to go.

    I’m probably going to jinx us but I just have the feeling that we are going to lay waste to the Blazers. Out of all of the teams that have good records I think they are the one with the most smoke and mirrors. They have not faced a team like us yet and while I think Aldridge is a great forward he is NOT going to over power our team and Lillard will not get in the lane on us like he does other teams. The only hope they have at all against us is if that three ball is falling but even then they are going to have to hit it at both a high % and a high frequency.

    So in other words Pacers fans on your feet. It’s time for the celebratory fruit of life dance and to provide our dancing music the only thing that comes to my mind right now is a head banging anthem from Pantera which kind of describes our team "Cowboys from hell".

    The Clippers will never succeed in the playoffs with Griffin Force douche commercials, and all I do is catch lobs and miss free throws Jordan PF/C combo.

        Oh and I really hope that Blake Griffin liked David West throwing a low blow during his interview w/ Brooke after the game saying Aldridge was the best PF in the NBA. (Not sure if that's really true either, it'll be a moot point in a year or 2 with Anthony Davis)

            That's not a low blow to me....he's just stating the obvious. Blake Griffin clearly isn't the best PF in the League...at least not in my eyes.

              Well I know that, just if I'm the ego of an all-star starting PF like Blake is, I'd be offended.

                Re: Odd Thoughts: Sinking the Clippers

                Great write up Peck agree with everything you wrote though you said that the bench has been good all season and that tonight was just not their night.

                While I wish this were true it simply has not been this year, the bench I still believe to be a major upgrade over last season but that isn't saying a lot when it was a 2 way race for worst benches ever between us and Portland. Individually guys have played well off the bench at times. Scola has had plenty of great moments, CJ has had some flashes of being a very good backup point though his shot has been off all year except 1 game, Mahinmi has been a lot more steady this year than he was last year, and Orlando has had some moments, but unfortunately collectively as a unit they are once again not getting the job done for this team. We are once again the worst 2nd quarter team in the league statistically (fewest points per 2nd quarter) a title we also held last year. You say the clock ticking moments you had this game you haven't felt thus far this year I've routinely felt. I want the 2nd unit to produce and I feel like they should be producing as a unit better than they are but for some reason this unit still haven't truly clicked together. The reason we have trailed in more games at the half than we should this season has been because of these 2nd quarter woes, I often find myself just hoping that when the 2nd quarter lineup comes in that they just don't get outscored by the opposing bench by a sum of 10 or more. I think this unit is capable of outperforming other teams 2nd units but the results as a collective unit are still missing. Though in the end come playoff time when the rotations get shortened all that really matters is that you have 3 guys that can produce and give you solid minutes and at least this year we do have that something that wasn't true about basically a single player off the bench last year. The 2nd unit has yet to cost us a game so maybe I'm being overcritical of the unit, but I think there is a lot of room for improvement from the bench unit.

                  Flying through the air, taking akward set shots, doing bad commercials.... then reality sets in and you see David West who pounds you in the chest for 30 plus minutes. There's style and substance, give me substance everytime, Blake. If anything DWest should be a lesson for Blake Griffin, but I doubt he gets it in any way. Enjoy the highlights Clippers. Nice write up, Peck.
