As most of you know I try to be fair to members and stay out of editing posts as much as I can.

I came into this board to talk about the Saints that I love. I know this is off season but there is still news coming out of the Saints camp. I however did not come here to belittle other members or talk about the moon and stars.

I have tried everyway I know how to get along with these members that seem to like to abuse other members and use language that shouldn't be on a football board. As a moderator, I HAVE to worry about who might read the posts. As posters it's not that way, the only reason you members don't do it is out of consideration of others. I appreciate those of you that try to help us moderators out and not make us edit every post.

So here's the deal. Please keep the language to a reasonable level. And PLEASE no belittling other members. You wouldn't want them to do it to you.
If you guys think I'm being unreasonable about trying to lighten up on the language and not belittleing other members then let me know and I will resign my post.

Thank you for listening.

Actually, JoeSam will not be resigning his post! If you can\'t keep the language to a reasonable level then you won\'t post here anymore. That means stop flaming other members and watch the cursing.

joe, you can\'t have good without bad.....adam and eve caused this, not you.....continue to edit the cuss words, i\'m all for it, but not the thoughts and opinions of others.....this board provides both information and entertainment which is why i like it. you have a winning combination which makes your workload harder, but well worth the effort......being a homeboy, i need my spices in da crayfish and have no complaints about a bland second batch for those who can\'t handle em......everyone should have the benifit of the doubt, don\'t you think? smitty

I can\'t speak for everyone on here but I do not take it personally when someone slams me or calls me any kind of name. I hope no one takes it personally when I slam them and call them morons, idiots, retarted, dumb, well u get the message. I haven\'t had one person come to me and say, Billy will you stop picking on me, nor I heard anyone say that to any other member. What I have heard is, man I don\'t want to hear that, from members that those posts had nothing to do with. To me this is no different than sitting around and watching a football game with a friend that is for the opposing team, I bash him and his team and he does like wise. It\'s not like we aren\'t friends when the game is over. Heaven forbid the members that find this offensive go to a sports bar, because if you get offended here , you will be wanting to kick everyone out of the sports bar.

Halo, JoeSam - of course I agree completely. I will be the first to admit that I have had my moments (see Brooks/Delhomme debate), but I\'ve tried my best to speak intelligently about football without undercutting or insulting people.

As a web admin myself I certainly know the burden you two must carry and I apologize if I have made that any tougher than need be. One major problem with this type of communication is that it is very difficult to fully understand what someone means without tone, body language, etc. Thus, as posters, it is our responsibility not to call each other \"morons, idiots, retarted, dumb... etc\" b/c while our point may be intended to be jovial or joking it can be taken other ways. This problem is compounded by the fact that we are discussing a topic that we all feel very strongly about.

Again, I thank you both for providing this forum for us, and I will pledge to do my personal best to keep my own language reasonable, and help to promote an environment in which people are free to express their views without fear of ridicule or emotional distress. Thanks guys, you\'re doing a great job.

Thank you all for your support. All I have ever asked is to keep it clean within reason. If I have to edit a post it will only be to clean up a post. I do not want to change the meaning of the post. Or the thought behind it. I ask only that you the members help us in keeping this board a place where we all can meet no matter what the age. Remember none of us live forever, and young Saints fans can feel like they belong too. Several of you have mentioned taking your kids to their 1st Saints game this year. This too can be a forum for them. A wayt to keep them interested in our Saints.
