Just to add to this, the following things will get you moderated and are considered against forum rules.
Using insulting comments that may be offensive to others, including using words to describe a mental disability directed in an insulting manner.
Using anything sexual, regardless if it is filtered out or not, is entirely unacceptable and falls under the came category as not posting offensive and pornographic material, including posting a sexual act and referring to a player, coach, or LGW member intended as an insult.
Anything borderline or directly racist or homosexual will be strictly enforced going forward, without hesitation. There is absolutely zero place for that here, so understand even what "borderline" means in this situation and if there is any slight doubt in your mind that it is inappropriate, again, do not post it at all.
Some posters here will need to change their posting habits in a speedy and efficient manner, or you may not make it to the next season. I'm done with it, a ton of this site's members are finished with it also, and enough is enough at this point. This is a Hockey discussion forum, intended for people of all ages, and some of what is being posted here lately is entirely out of line. Any members are also encouraged to report any questionable activity so it may be brought to our attention as soon as possible and we can deal with it appropriately.
Its called a joke. Maybe you people, and by people I mean anyone that's offended by anything should prolly not be on the Internet.
I can take a joke. Pretty much everything I do and say is either sarcasm or a joke. But there's certain things that just go too far. I'm not even remotely close to being the PC police, but certain "jokes" shouldn't be made.
Main list includes, but is not limited to;
Rape, abuse, special needs people and mocking people's children. I don't even mind some light racism against my nationality.
When it's 4+ pages of team bashing and complete nonsense, absolutely. Directly from the forum rules.
· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.
While we have the small handful of posters here that seem to have issues with how things are handled, I guarantee you we have a much bigger concern from posters that think we are entirely too lenient and have expressed to us in PM about leaving this site because of how toxic the GDT becomes, and how X poster is entirely too argumentative and aggressive in their posting style and no longer want to be involved with this community due to these people. Its a two way road, but the majority that send us messages is out of concern about things not being moderated enough and the things we often let slide. If you could only see my PM box and weigh out the positives against the negatives, it may give you a better perspective.
A lot of great members, boosters, and moderators have been chased away from this site from a few of the same very people that are critical of the moderation staff that generally find their way out eventually anyway. The minority of the community feels like the moderators are pushing people away, but the majority feels it is the aggressive and confrontational posters. This is a fact that any member of the staff here would easily back me up on, including Matt.
So I support what the staff does, if threatening to close a GDT after receiving a handful of reports about how out of hand it is getting in the thread to level things out and return it back to game discussion instead of post after post of "This team sucks" "F*** this team" "What a joke" is a big concern of yours, in which the GDT was never, nor has it ever been locked in the middle of any game ever on this site, feel free to send a PM to Matt and we can look into overturning that comment in the now entirely irrelevant GDT.
I've said this time and time again, no forum in the history of the internet's existence has ever had a moderation staff that 100% of the community is content with. It's impossible to please everyone in any scenario like this. It really comes down to how much of it really bothers you and if it's that important to you to be a determining factor if you stay here as a part of the community or take your leave.
I know, how dumb we are for preferring the name reflect the culture, history, or people of our great city instead of acting as an advertisement for sub par pizza. Perhaps we should build an alter to Mike Illitch in Campus Martius Park and ritualistically bow each time we pass since idol worship is now something to be proud of.
The arena is partially financed with public funds, so its not asking too much to have the name reflect the public, and not corporate, interest.
But that's just me. I'm a dreamer...who also played attention in civics class. Now if you'll excuse me, Living Colour's "Cult of Personality" just came on the radio and I need to go practice being slavish.
American Staffordshire Terriers/Pitbulls/Any mix of them...I wouldn't shed a tear if this breed of dog was outlawed, and disappeared.
Some poor infant was mauled to death by a Pit bull mix a few days ago.
From Dog Bites.org - 'In the 11-year period of 2005 through 2015, canines killed 360 Americans. Pit bulls contributed to 64% (232) of these deaths. Combined, pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 76% of the total recorded deaths'.
but they're nanny dogs
whenever a dog is aggressive or ill tempered most of the times there's a human(s) who turned them like that
I wouldn't expect the Wings' organization or fanbase to damn experience, hard work, and a long history of success so the rich popular kid can have a job. Holland was well within his right to decline the offer.
