There've been some "differences of opinion" on this lately, as occasionally other teams come up in conversation. That's fine, but we're not interested in folks seriously picking fights. We're all in-chat to watch the Jackets, after all.
In light of recent events, I would like to reiterate the above. We the moderators of Live Chat do not consider the status of "being a fan of another team" to be inherently trolling, and react just as poorly to insults leveled to such folks as we would to folks insulting our own fans.

At the same time, we expect similarly reasonable conduct from such visitors, and that includes not egging on folks who are frustrated.

We had both come up earlier this evening, and believe me when I say that taking action against that sort of thing is no fun.

Be excellent to eachother, y'all! Keep rule #1 in mind, and remember that Chat also has an /ignore function.

This is all.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
