"Treat others like you want to be treated." and "If you cannot say something nice, then don't say anything at all." If we acted like that, we would not have near the problems we have here or anywhere. But no one is perfect. This is also an internet message board and too many folks think that it is just a place to vent. It is just faceless names with no feelings so I can say whatever I want with no consequences...how many of you think like that? Well, you are wrong. Maybe that is the way it is other places, but not here. Not on our forum. We have always stood for equality for all posters and for this to be a safe place for ALL football fans to be able to come and discuss the game - without fear of being called names or being trolled or being talked down to. With all that has happened in this last season, too many poster have gotten away from the original core ideals of this forum. Not good. That is all I can say...just not good. The mod team cannot even keep up with all of the fires these days. It is unbelievable! What has happened to our fan base. Seriously? For those who don't know or have forgotten, we have a set of rules here. They apply to EVERY poster. It doesn't matter what team you support, what player you support or if you simply like football. Break the rules and the mods will do what is necessary to keep the forum running smoothly. If you want to keep posting here and be part of the community, them simply FOLLOW THE RULES that YOU agreed to when you joined this site. Do not blame any one else if you choose not to do what you agreed to do. You have a choice. Please make the right one. The name calling/insulting is going to stop. We already have the 24 hour 'rule' in place for inflammatory posts and personal shots, but if these become a habit...then you will lose your posting privileges. Simple. Stop and think before you post. If you see a subject or even a poster that you have an issue with, move on. Please find more civil ways to discuss the subjects at hand without being inciting or insulting. If posters only wish to hear their own viewpoints, then there is no purpose to continue in a particular discussion except to incite and inflame. That is considered trolling. If your post is just to make trouble, then you are causing trouble. That is not going to be tolerated. We all have to work together to heal. Heal the fanbase, the forum, the team...heck - even the league after a lot of the things that have happened. If you here to only make things worse, then re-evaluate why you are posting. We want lively discussions. We want a variety of opinions debated in a civil manner. We want a variety of fans from many backgrounds so that things remain interesting. We want differing opinions discussed from lots of viewpoints. But we do not need constant sniping and people being hurtful to each other. Nor do we need people being nasty toward members of the NFL organizations - owners, coaches, players, etc. Do your best to be respectful. Think before you post. Debate in a civil manner. Respect others' opinions even if they are not the same as yours. If you are not contributing to a topic, then move on to another. Thank you for your time and cooperation. Let's make this the best forum for football fans once again. ~PG
