  1. Now, let's please keep this back on the original topic and in the spirit in which it was meant. One of being helpful to the community. There are too many exciting things happening that all football fans can get into soon. No need to look for divisions and conflict. It is a new season for us all. Are you ready for some football?
  2. She thinks knows she is the queen and makes sure that the younger cats (especially Peyton ) knows it too. I have had she since was a baby as well. Feistiest thing you will ever see.
  3. My 23 year old calico/tabby/tux is sitting here beside me now. She defies all laws of nature and logic.
  4. I gotcha and you didn't annoy me. Sorry if it came across like that. When there is a major rift or a lot of issues in the forum, sometimes we will post a rule reminder. If we have had a big influx of new users or if there has been a big event and folks have gotten used to pushing the limits a little too much, some appreciate the reminder that the rules are there for everyone. No problems at all.
  5. Thank you very much. I appreciate it. No worries. I will always be PeytonGirl.
  6. It *IS* said elsewhere, namely in the rules. But too many folks forget about them. I have to say that I am curious as to why some folks want the thread closed. I am not asking. I am simply making an observation.
  7. Back from USENET days. I am dating myself to say that I remember them well.
  8. Yes, you may be new here so you may not get the history of our forum. But we have a good number of Patriot fans on here. In fact, one of our longest standing members (and mods) is a Pats fan. Over the years and through the many versions of this forum, we have enjoyed lively debates with our Patriot friends and somewhere down the line, we got into the fun of... Peyton vs. Brady or Cake vs. Pie. So when some new emoticons were added, these were among them for fun. :manning: :brady: It is not to honor Tom necessarily, just because he is talked about a lot.
  9. A few notes. The post you reference was not made about you (I do not believe). The black/white comment was made because several posters had problems by getting into racial comments regarding QBs (especially Luck and RG3). It was a no racism reminder, nothing else. Your veiled reference was not missed, nor appreciated. I call Godwin's law. You can take this suggestion or not, but since you seem to find these reminders offensive...perhaps you would be better served posting in another topic before something is said that cannot be taken back. That goes for everyone. As shecolt said, the post w
  10. No, I think you are a very intelligent person. We have had discussions before. That was not meant in any other way than how it was said, truthfully. That is why I don't understand why you are making a meal out this. If you word something with the intent on being insulting, then you made an insult. How hard is that? If your intent is to be inflammatory, then it will probably will come across that way.
  11. Wyld, The thread was created to try and help everyone remember the rules. Too much has been said on both sides of EVERY subject here. Too much division, conflict and too much nastiness. Time to try and find our way back. Some appreciate the courtesy of a reminder and apparently some do not. That is interesting. But hey, whatever. Like I said. Take it as you will. Seems you did.
  12. Dan, that is not being reasonable. It is all about context. You are very intelligent and know what is meant. No need for the snarkiness.
  13. I *rrreeeaaalllyyyy* hope that you left off that winking, smiling emoticon, showing that you meant that as a joke. I mean, really hope you did.
  14. This is not going to be a bash the moderation thread (which is against the rules to do so on the forum, btw). If ANY of you see a post that is problematic, report it. It will be reviewed and handled by the mod team. Guess what? Those results are not made public. You don't get to know what happened. So you don't know when an issue has been dealt with. This is not an "air your grievances" thread. It was made more of a reminder to most and a warning to many. Take it as you will.
  15. If the words were supposed to be banned, they would be in the words filter. Yes, obviously. Come on. A little perspective, please. These words are inflammatory and yes, they will be looked down as such.
  16. Thanks, Ruksak. Part of the purpose of the reminder thread is to emphasize the fact that inciting is trolling. We are all human and have the urge to rise to the bait when it is right there in front of us. It is easier to retaliate than it is to hit the report button. But we all have to try to be the bigger person. The mods cannot read every post written. I know there are inciting posts. I see a lot. I delete a lot. I warn for a lot of them. I know all of the mods do. However, it is every poster's responsibility to decide what they type and send. If you respond, you are responsible for
  17. I would love to have seen Peyton and Jeff together one more season, but I am not sure the offense in Denver (run heavy) would be great for Jeff. Not what he is used to playing. I know Denver will adjust a bit for Peyton, but they are still built differently and I am not sure Jeff was the right fit. Packers is not a bad landing spot.
  18. I have a cat named Peyton. Big surprise there. Nyah!
  19. The tool part....That is not quite the spirit of the rules. It is unreasonable to expect others to just "have a thick skin" and say "if you cannot take the heat, don't be on the internet". We are made up of a large fanbase of many types of fans. There are plenty of forums out there where "anything goes". If you want to act like a tool or call others a tool, there are places for that. It isn't here. Respect and civility. Disagreeing passionately? That is fine as long as it is done without being insulting to each other. Passion is a great thing in fandom.
  20. Peyton is the one who had to make the decision about his health and surely knows more than anyone else how he feels. Speaking from experience (two spinal fusions - lumbar), I understand about the additional stress on the areas above and below the fusion. But his original issue was from injury and not from an ongoing problem like disk degeneration. The stress will be limited and those areas will be strong. All any of us can do is wish him the best now and in the future. He has decided to play. But this thread will be moved to NFL General. Thanks for posting it. I found it interesting from
