RED CUP REBELLION'S HATE WEEK DISCLAIMER

Don't be the Andre of the Week; read this.

Did you graduate from an English speaking high school some time within the last few decades? If so, then you're likely familiar with George Orwell's 1984, in which an all-powerful dystopian state is able to control its populace via maintaining a constant state of warfare, paralyzing the citizenry into order and obedience via fear and hatred. One tool used to maintain this order is an event entitled "Hate Week," which allows the society's ruling party to identify their wartime enemy and, with much fanfare, drum up support for their own cause by rallying the ruled behind both fear and the exciting notion of an impending victory.

As Macbeth would describe it, is an act which is "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."

Considering that, please know that, with a few notable exceptions, we do not actually hate you. This is something we've done just about every week leading up to an Ole Miss football game for four years now. Do not let your myopic arrogance delude you into thinking that this is especially directed towards you or your football program in any particular way or for any particular reason. Taking anything you see here as a personal attack, unless it is of course directed at you and said with malice, is foolish and a waste of your time and energy. If you are to comment and contribute to HATE WEEK, please follow the community guidelines to which you have previously agreed - with the exception of the rule regarding actually producing content that is relevant to or contributory to a larger discussion. This isn't a discussion. This is HATE WEEK, where people act out in a way that, frankly, is not allowed elsewhere on the site. It is a place where people can, for the sake of saner, more level-headed discussion elsewhere, kinda be a jerk without making much sense of it all in the process. Think of it as an online version of The Purge. It's our one time and place to unleash our darker side so that the rest of our little corner of the internet can remain the place for, ideally, more clever and thoughtful Ole Miss fan interaction.

We at the Cup have been pretty good at self-policing these sorts of threads, but even then we do ask that you please flag anything that you feel crosses the line so that moderators may review for deletion or other actions. And, whatever you do, don't be the Andre of the Week.
