Some of you may have noticed that every so often where a word should be, four little ####’s appear. That’s because I’ve put five words on an automatic hit list. It happens remotely, without the aid of a moderator. In my experience these particular words arise when the thinking stops and the red mist descends. Another change is the abandonment of yellow and red cards. Whilst it can be good crack, it is also costly in time and resources to manage. In future, persistent offenders against the ad hominem rule will be re-directed to another site.
We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
