This is in regards to all the Fire Lowe comments,the mod bashing and also just general message board etiquette.
When you signed up on these message boards, you were required to read and agree with the forum rules. Here are a couple I would like to point out:
8. Please do not make a thread about message board issues but rather send all suggestions, complaints and compliments via PM to the Moderator, and please allow time for the Moderator to respond. Threads on board issues will be deleted. Similarly, "hey mod" posts are not an effective way to comment.
5. No personal insults or personal attacks on other posters or individuals, site moderators, administration or the management, coaches, and players of the Oilers organization.
- All postings are monitored and Forum Admin reserves the right to edit or remove posts at any time, without citing a reason. Failure to abide by the guidelines set out above may result in you being permanently excluded from this Forum. If you disagree with the rules of the forum please inform Forum admin, who will remove your registration details.
- Forum Admin reserve the right to lock (or delete) any threads it deems necessary and does not have to cite a reason for this.
Now, we all have our opinions and such and we do not all agree on all topics, and that helps us engage in healthy debates and converstaion. Going beyond that and personally attacking and bashing is not acceptable here. Even with all this social media we have to be accounatble for our comments and responsible with them at the same time.
As M2C stated so wonderfully:
"we can say his name. We can even criticize him.. IF it is done respectfully, and without demanding the pitchforks and flaming torches pound down his front door. This board is provided to us by the organization and we owe it to them to at least show respect even when we do not agree with them."
The discussions in regards to signings, trades and your opinion on our GM and how he is doing in his role is fine, but the flat out bashing and fire Lowe threads will be removed. This rule is applied to players, other members and our mod team as well. This is not new, it has been a forum rule here since the beginning.
So we ask for your co-operation and avoid such conduct going forward.
All issues and questions can be sent via pm.
