This violates the whole scioly spirit in general and the friendly relations our schools are supposed to have--you don't have to be best friends, but saying degrading things about other schools isn't exactly making you look good and it's not doing your team any favors...
To add some context to Ento's post, there was recently a bit of a skirmish about certain teams that got out of hand very quickly. We realize that sometimes emotions about one's own team can be very strong, and tensions can get high as competition season progresses, but it is imperative that all users are respectful of each other in order to keep things civil.
We will also add that deliberately inciting a confrontation, or making deliberately inflammatory remarks about other schools or users will NOT be tolerated, and is punishable by board warnings, temporary bans of varying length, or permanent bans, depending on the severity of the offense. We take this very seriously.
Luckily, these incidents don't occur on the forums very often, and we would like to keep it that way. We know that the vast majority of our users are respectful towards each other and the site, and we are deeply appreciative of this.
