  • To Phillip, Bryan and Ron,

    I have got to tell you guys that I have enjoyed your articles, Insight and historical info available through this site over the last few months.

    To Seraph, jadennis and others I am forgetting,

    Your messages and data at times provided a view other than mine that I found intelligent and well worth reading.

    To those of you that continue to blame Alabama Fans, call them names, be disrepectful to them as they have always been to us,

    I encourage you to consider well what I am about to say.

    I do not cheer for the TIde and must admit I typically would rather see them lose than win. I however find the message boards, talk shows, and other electronic resources available to us have continuing spewing of hatred, name calling, and lack of respect to be down right childish immature behaviour. I think by exposing ourselves to this continually that we can become or act like the rest over time even though we typically are above the cesspool. You can see it even here amongst our own (supposedly) that good natured, respectful and fellow Auburn men and women occasionally dip our toes (or keys on the keyboard) into the muck because someone has offended us.

    The enviroment we spend time in or the company we keep can have an effect on us. All of the electronic outlets continue to keep us in that enviroment. I will stand next to you to defend free speech but I think that it is questionable whether this is the place for some of what we see.

    I would suggest that on this site that there should be a stand alone board for that type of crap because that is what it is. I would also suggest that the website monitor and figure out how to push those who continue to "sling it" to not be allowed to post in a board that should not include the crap. I guess it is censorship but I choose not to expose myself to it any longer.

    I choose to be in a respectful enviroment that keeps the comments proud but also respectful. A place where I could let my 9 year old read and not worry about him picking up on a new nickname for his schoolmates that could get him in trouble at school or at his church. There are Alabama fans that are my neighbors, in-laws, and friends. I would not want them to hear, see, or read the downright garbage that is sometimes posted here by Auburn Men and Women.

    I choose to spend my money here and so do many of you. You have your right to do as you will and I understand if you disagree with me. I would rather spend my monthly fee here on something for the University if we cannot find a place here for subscribers that can be respectful and choose not to swim in it.

    I love Auburn and truly appreciate my Auburn Family.

  • This is another important post from gadwall. The hate we sometimes feel is not good for us or anyone else.

    Yes, let's live the Auburn creed.

  • Hate is wrong yes, but good ole poking in the ribs and name calling is part of the rivalry. I respect all of my freinds but I still give the hell every now and then. If a message board isn't the place to be a homer and rag on your rival, where do you suggest?

  • As I said a board for those that want to

    a board for those that don't

  • Can't make everybody happy all the time. You will always have that stuff on any board. Its just the nature of it.

  • I guess you're right. I am choosing with my wallet and moving on in a few days. Will still read from time to time in the public areas but i have decided I need to find another way to spend my time . Hopefully things will ge better soon but I did not expect this site to become like a tider insider. or a tiger droppings. But a few have made it that way for me. Shame really.

    I wish you all well.

  • You should probably keep your membership for the premium articles and recruiting information. The masses will settle down, after all this blows over. It will probably be when next season kicks off. We are supposed to be among Auburn fans only, so you are going to hear name calling towards Alabama, but it will slow down. People are just tired and angry from these constant attacks. Just take a break from reading the non-moderator posts.

    Something to keep in mind, for those of us on here that are old enough to remember the 60's and 70's, we were under a constant bombardment from the bammers with little amunition to shoot back in the bragging wars. Sometimes, the fans that grew up with nothing to crow about find it hard to crow a little when they now have that legitimate amunition to shoot back with. Those on the other side never stopped crowing even when they really didn't have anything to crow about because of their sense of entitlement. Unfortunately it is hard for some of us to to conrol the urge to put them in there place and after being poked at for years not to poke back. Never read anything on these message boards without asking what the poster's motives was. There are numerous post on here that are quite enciteful and present points of view that even though they are not your own, it is good to know they are out there. While admittedly there are alot outthere that may have been a waste of time to read. Your post have been read by me and others. I have not downvoted anyone on here for writing something that I didn't agree with, and I only upvote the ones that I find intriguing. I hope you stick around, cause you have things to say in the latter catagory.

  • Maybe I've been reading the other boards too frequently, but this site is so much more civilized than the others. I believe, in general, the posters here are more mature and respectful than the other sites. It would be a shame to let the minority who occasionally fall of the wagon, so to speak, ruin your enjoyment of the great content that is posted here.

    This is the only place to be, if you want real info and civil discussion. Now I like to kill time surfing other sites, but rarely have I seen anything there that turns out to be true. My main concern is having the AU Family start behaving like our rivals. Make no mistake LSU, UF, UGA they all love to point fingers and spread rumors and out and out lies. We need to stay above that, at least on this site.

    Their are only a few words in the English language that truly sicken and disgust me. They are the ones that have racial connotations, or are derogatory towards women. The rest of the so called cuss words all have their place in our language. I use the word turds to describe the fans of the University of Alabama, and sometimes do not capitalize their names, as that is reserved for proper nouns, something I feel most of them are not. I too have friends that are fans of The University of Alabama. I am currently building a home for a graduate of Alabama, yes I will spend their money all day long, besides it is green. I typically place a time capsule inside the walls of all of the homes I have ever built. Sometimes it is a picture of the the family owning the home with the date of construction and names of the owners/children, but always a copy of the plans and my business card. I have debated on leaving some Auburn gear inside their walls, but have decided to refrain out of respect for my friends. Perhaps my disdain is mellowing. I will also refrain from using the word turds to describe them on this board from here on, and instead i will use the word Harveys, which you will notice I did capitalize. I hope this is not offensive to you or your 9 yr. old. If I am not mistaken, Auburn may be the only school in the country with a Creed. It is something I try to live by on a daily basis, however we are all human, and I am by far nowhere close to perfect, nor is anyone. Everyone has their faults/character flaws and you have to accept that in people. If calling someone from the University of Alabama a Harvey is the worst I have done today, I can live with that.

    I would hope you decide to stick around as this is the most civil, knowledgable, and informative group of Auburn fans around. And that staff is pretty darn good too!
