Trash Talk?


short version: Is there are a doc with guidelines for rules of play?

I come from playing backgammon and sitting in poker rooms where trash talk is a big part of the game. The peanut gallery is generally ruthless. I found in “tournament backgammon” this type of behavior is generally frowned on. Has a “norm” been settled on in Art of Memory, Memory League? You guys are generally outrageously polite on the main forum but I suspect there are a couple of you who are accomplished trash-talkers (you know who you are). Is distraction an entertaining gambit? Can you use your other talents? It would seem a shame to have a ‘competition’ that doesn’t provide the ability for the competitors to engage.
