I know Bronx...but it's clear that this is no more than shouting into the void. As far as I'm concerned, I did my part....I offered a simple solution and it was ignored. I really could care less about it all now.

No you got it wrong...I already ponted out that choices and opinions are fair game for assaulting people, just not things you can't control like gender or race. Fans of the opposition are excercising a CHOICE...so let 'em have both barrels!

If that's what works... fine by me. Just my opinion but this whole thing is a joke. If TJ really wants to shut this down...then shut it down. There are no rules or guidelines just a steady stream of be good, and don't be vulgar... What ever that means.

The example thread that i saw was less vulgar than any thread leading up to chiefs or raiders week and about 1/10th of what happens between Slap and Mock on some threads(though those threads hold some of the most well written smack I've ever seen) The word family is being brought up over and over, yet everyone using that term ignores the pornstar avatars that show up all over the front page

Shut it down, hide it in a corner, password protect it... None of that matters. The people that are complaining will continue to complain, no matter where it is. If this section is really that bad and that much of a headache then do what you want with it. I come here for the bronco news first and foremost. This section is an added bonus, if it's not here people will find somewhere else to spout their vulgar political banter.

Does making people with miniature IQ's feel even stupider because you can qualify as being an A-hole? Or is that just for potty mouths?

I know, sounds corny doesnt it? But believe it or not, we do get quite a few families and even media that come through here all the time.

Hmm, I just had another idea that could work. What about being able to give members the option to turn this forum off like we can do with sigs and avatars. I wonder if that would help... See I'm full of ideas bro!

Well I have no illusions that you're the boss. None whatsoever. That's why I directed our 'petition' to you. You have full authority to make whatever decisions you choose to make. But you must acknowledge that elsewhere on the Mane, you share your authority with both moderators and with sets of rules. In this room, you provide neither. You simply centralize your authority around fuzzy rules and an imprecise admonition that we all "do our part."

Well, what exactly is my part? I mind my manners and contribute. Should I also PM you to report name-calling? Should I complain to W*GS or LABF when they go too far? What excatly is 'my part'?

In my experience elsewhere in life, authority figures who make veiled termination threats, provide no intermediate authority process, nor any clear-cut guidelines, are simply reserving the right to make any decisions without accountability for the rules, because none exist.

Have you already decided to close it? If so, lemme know now. I love this room, it's taught me a lot, and it's part of my routine now - I'm used to it. I started this whole 'petition' because I give a darn about it, not to challenge you.

Do any of you find it peculiar that the religous guy (me) is arguing that you should be able to assault someone in here for their religion? I think you should be able to crap all over anyone you want to in here without repercussions...what fun is it if people who dislike you have to pretend they do?

The most important thing to remember is that TJ puts his energy into this board to make a great Bronco board. Like everyone, his energy is limited. If he has to devote that energy to an off topic forum, at the expense of the Bronco discussion forums, the off topic forum should go away and let him concentrate on his main objective.

You know, we could always create a special "alec" filter where we could all cuss, and his responses would come out like the following...

Alec - Go **** yourself you as***** piece of ****!

Translation
Go flower yourself you astronaut piece of chief fan!

No .... I DID! I quoted you elsewhere. In fact, you're better at this than me, so take over (but no spam) ... and remember: Do Your Part!

Actually, TJ is great - I hate to think this is anything like a challenge to him .... I just want to be able to rely on having WRP everyday ... that might sound a little strange, but it's how I feel. I think starting the PM petition WAS me "doing my part."

I will say this, this board shuts down - i'm done with the OM. the only real reason i come here is for this part of the board.

I can't talk football with everyone topside. It's too vulgar with all the hate of cheif and raider fans. to hate someone over the stupid colour of their jersey or the team they root for, i wonder what could be more vulgar than that display of human egoism rooted in it's deepest desires to be accepted and part of something larger than themselves.....
