    Big A We do not allow profanity on this message board

    I guess it's that time of the year where we have to remind our members we do not allow profanity on this message board. We do not allow the cute misspelled vulgar words, we do not allow links to content that is vulgar or profane, we do not allow links to nudity, or porn. If someone asks for links send them an email or PM do not post it on the open forum. This is a family site so please obey this rule. If you can't converse without using profanity you don't have a good grasp of the English language.
    ====================================
    EDIT:
    In most cases if it isn't too bad you will just be sent a PM. If it is vulgar you will be sent an infraction PM asking you to understand the policy before you can be reinstated.

    Do not respond with "I didn't do anything wrong" or "someone asked me what he said" or "someone asked for the link."

    "I understand and will not do it again" is the proper response for you to be reinstated.

    Do not quote any profanity from a member it just makes cleanup that much harder and your post will be deleted as well as a possible infraction yourself.

    You are responsible for what you post on the message board.

    Good thing you can't detect drinking on this board! Then again...maybe you can, lol!!!

    I tell you what I will do. I will ban myself from posting on here for at least 12 hours after each game. I should be sober after that time.

    But the profanity has got to go!!!

    Thanks for your efforts to keep this site clean. After all, the use of profanity reflects on one's ignorance.

    Re: We do not allow profanity on this message board

    This is why so many people love this board. You get more news and opinions here without all of the trash.

    True story.
    The first message board I ever visited was Tidefans the summer before we went out to Norman to play OU. My now x-wife was a Sooner grad and found the board and proceeded to try and talk trash. She was quickly booted by not only the board but by myself. Anyway a few years after visiting Tidefans every day I went and checked out a few other boards and found out they don't even discuss football. They take turns calling eachother and our rivals names, that's it. No inside info, no real discussion just trash talk. I haven't since and never will look at other boards, no need.

    Re: We do not allow profanity on this message board

    Thank you for the rules and the enforcement - I have gone to other forums to get the other teams view and opinions of upcoming games - maybe one out of ten post are not filled with profanity, vulgar comments and so on.

    Again thanks - I hope the rules never change.

    Keep up the good work! Definitely one of the big reasons that this is the only board I read.

    Re: We do not allow profanity on this message board

    The difference between this board and all others is absolutely amazing. The Admins and Moderators on other boards are practically non-existent. On andy given day the content on other boards is about 25% actual coherent information and 75% smack talking, pointless discussions, and innappropriate content. This site is a breath of fresh air thanks to the powers that be. RTR.
