I thought it might be useful to begin to compile a glossary of terms that are either in common use on Slugger, or accurately describe what happens here. Rules of play are likely to be included, as well as things like the Godwin Rule on the emergence of the subject of Nazis in any given thread.
I hope it will prove useful to those who are joining us for the first time, and help the rest of us to frame a vigourous and postive discourse on the site. None of the descriptions are set in stone, and will be subject to improvement and correction from readers. The first entry will be on its way shortly!
