Obligatory "Be Nice or I'll Hurt You" Thread

It's kind of upsetting that this requires such a broad announcement.

The next time you put down a person on GGN whose opinions you don't like as stupid, youthful and ignorant, mentally deficient or disabled; intoxicated, annoying, a "fake fan", unwelcome; or somehow inferior to you in any manner of speaking just for making their voice heard, stop and take a good long look at yourself.

Does a mature, mentally alert, intelligent, sober, "real" fan really need to revert to such middle school tactics to win an internet argument? Are you really going to act like you have it all together and figured out on a sports fan internet user board at 4 in the morning on the weekend? I genuinely feel bad for you if you think you do. It's very unlikely that you're better than anyone else here, no matter what your creed or education level is, or who you root for in sports.

I don't care who they are and where they come from. I don't care if they like the Jets or the Broncos or the Myrtle Beach Mermen. I don't care if they love Tebow, if they hate Tebow, or if they are just generally disappointed or pleased with Tebow. If you can't treat people with respect then refrain from commenting on that users posts. Keep your passive aggressive bullying to yourself. You don't dictate who uses this site. Your dumb opinion isn't the be all end all formula to fixing a football team, and neither is my dumb opinion.

I'm absolutely disgusted with some of our most prolific members and visitors right now, and part of it is my fault allowing a certain tone to resonate here, or even partaking in exclusive behavior. GGN, and the rest of the world, is bigger than you. Without the eyes of thousands of people who couldn't disagree with you more reading your words, your comments would be absolutely pointless.

This will be deleted to make room for actual football discussion after a day when everyone has had a chance to read it. If you're an adult that is smarter than your internet adversary, act like it. And fair warning, it's been a pretty long time since I went on one of my famous nasty streaks, so it's advisable to keep the indignant explanations of why you're exempt from being civil to one another to yourself along with the bullying.

GIF's and other things to lighten the mood are welcome, but like I said this is getting deleted eventually.
