JFC, the pxssies are out to get me today.. I need a safe space! Turbine, I demand a safe space.. RPLM (Ragin Pagin Lives Matter).
Misogyny, vulgarity, crudity that's the BS. If you let go of it you'ld be the better for it. It's limiting you not me. I just don't get why someone would cling to using _____ as an insult. There are many women I respect and out of respect for all women I aspire to be a gentleman. I have my downfalls but my greater point is the absurdity that if using "bastard" as an insult to an individual garnered admonishment then how could "____" be allowed as it offers insult to all women.
Personally, I have never understood why some people on this board use words such as b**ch, b**tard, dou****ag and others that can do nothing but incite. I know these people want to use the excuse that this is (just) a sports message board and it should be no big deal to use them as they see fit, but, good grief, these are people who either attended or graduated from an institute of higher learning (this university!). I believe most of these people are intelligent enough to use the education they have received and refrain from using terminology more fitting people who barely have a sixth grade education.
I wish you well, Turbine, in dealing with this.
speaking of selective enforcement........ what about celebration penalties after TD's. I seem to recall we got one (or maybe more) for a coach a few years ago.... but so far this season I have seen a player clearly from the bench, (had no helmet and was holding a towel) in the endzone celebrating with his TD scoring teammate and I saw a player receiving a wrestling championship belt for scoring a TD, no flags.... can someone refresh my memory about our coach to see if these would match in severity? thanks.... unless the argument is coaches are held to a higher standard then so be it.
It would be nice if there were a Ragin Cajun Sports forum that we could discuss Cajun Athletics. It is a shame that does not exist anymore. Instead RP has turned into playgroud for a few people to exchange insults picked up on the 5th grade playground. Turbine tries to take some very mild steps to make it a little more civil for the 90% of people who have read and enjoyed it for many years, and he gets castigated. I find my self reading RP and posting much less that in the past for this reason. I do not think I am the only one.
We wonder why this country is in a sad state of affairs? Exhibit A. Whether you agree with profanity or not, it's part of expression. If your OPINION is against it fine. If your "sensibilities" are bothered by words, you are just as ridiculous as the people you are calling immature, stupid, childish, etc. if you're offended enough to complain, and throw a fit over WORDS, posted on a fan forum, you're looking for something to complain about. Any moron that compares the term pussIEfucation to discrimination of mother and daughters is a certifiable gas bag.
The greatest generation looks at you pukes and laughs.
Actualiy a lot of the threads end up with same crap being served over and over so it really does not matter which ones I read. With all of the bravado statements made in this and other threads it seems odd to me that a mild rebuke from Turbine would hurt you feelings so much.
Actually I'll say one more thing. My dad was part of "The Greatest Generation" and he would take you to the shed for the way you "express" yourself! Now I'm done.
