Please refresh yourselves with the board rules, especially the following:
2) Trolling: Do not post topics with the sole purpose of starting a dispute. Note that a person disagreeing with your opinion is NOT trolling; keep it civil, even if you're sure the other person is wrong.
When visiting the team forums please note that they are fan forums for that team and are here mainly for the enjoyment of that team's fans. Do not visit team forums to cheer against or demean their team, or cheer for their opponent. In other words, if you want to cheer for the Habs and criticize the Bruins, do it on the Habs board. And if someone is doing the opposite on the Bruins board, don't start flaming them to defend the honor of your team. Either ignore it respectfully disagree and move on.
Wishing illness or injury on someone will almost always be regarded as trolling or offensive. We do not permit any forums to be used to demean/insult the fans of other teams. That is considered trolling. Copying posts from one HFBoard team forum to another for this purpose is considered trolling.
This goes especially for right after the other team loses to the Sens (or wins for that matter). Emotions after games tend to run high, and it is generally advisable to stay away and refrain from posting on the other team's forum. Even innocent comments may be taken the wrong way and seen as trolling or rubbing the win in.
As well, this "trolling" that you do will only incite retaliation by the posters on that other board, and bring them over to this board, resulting in useless clutter and more work for your friendly neighbourhood Sens mods. Do you really want that on your conscience? Do you?
Thanks for your cooperation.
No, I'm not a girl. Stop asking!
