Rules of Behavior:
We have the same "ground rules" for Tottenham open threads as we do for any open thread, or indeed, any post on this site. I posted these yesterday as well, but let's review:
- No links to illegal streams in the comments.
- No derogatory language directed towards players, referees, or other users. It's fine to say "Player X is having a bad game" or even "Player X is playing like s**t today," but it is NOT okay to say "Player X is s**t" or "DIE IN A FIRE, PLAYER X," or the like. Comments such as those will be ruthlessly deleted and will resort in warnings and/or bans.
- Any racist, sexist, or homophobic language or inappropriate .gifs are cause for an insta-ban. You've been warned.
- Follow Wheaton's Law. "Don't be a d**k." If there are trolls, don't respond -- let the moderators handle it.
- Above all, have fun!
