    It is a way for people who either don't respond to PM discussions or just blatantly continue the behavior discussed. Basically, its a last resort to keeping sanity around here. I'm sure everyone has realized, you have to be a real prick to get anything serious...but then again, recruiting peak has not come around yet.

    The recruiting forum is the ONLY place on the board where concrete rules are in place. No cursing, bashing, negativity to kids, etc. Nutty, Skin86, and others put in a good bit of time with no is basic respect, IMHO, to follow the guidelines for that forum.
  5. thank you guys
