I speak only for myself, but perhaps others.

I was talking with my 13 year old son the other day about the crude talk that Jr high kids often engage in. He hears it all day and gets that it's just part of being that age. I told him that as we get older there are two kinds of people in this world: People who talk about sex and people who are having sex.

That said -- I'm sick of that small group of people who respond to any Seahawks transaction in terms of their own penis. It stopped being adorable like 2 minutes after the beastquake run. Believe it or not, there are some members on this board who are adults. I know, shocking to believe.

So from now on anyone who posts that they ejaculated because the Seahawks signed a backup long snapper -- I'm marking your user account as 'FOE' which means I won't see anything you post ever again. I don't expect you to care, but at least I get to take some small amount of control over the situation.

Because I went through Jr high once already, and once was enough.

Please resume your regular offseason euphoria.

Thank you, John.

No prepare for the rest of the world to respond to this thread with sex jokes.

Agreed, totally unnecessary and immature, and brings down what is a really good forum to talk Seahawk football. Besides the fact that if you want want to act like a child there is a forum for just that.

Appreciate the sentiment John, but in boxing I think they call that "leading with the chin."

...Honestly though, I hate it when people complain about bringing small children to places populated by adults and then tell the adults to conform. If you don't want your kids to be around adults, keep them away. That simple.

I respect your opinion, however I don't think its fair to expect everyone to conform to it.

I agree with the first part of this post, but that isn't what Hawkstorian said. He didn't voice a concern about his kids seeing this at all. He just is voicing his opinion that he doesn't like to see junior high type responses to forums populated by adults.

I personally, agree with him but I can understand why others have a need to talk about their excretions, I just don't need to read it.

I think we want adults to act like adults rather than children. I get that you don't understand that though. Again there is a forum to talk all about porn sex or whatever else you would like but it would be nice if the Seahawks forum was about the Seahawks.

I came...





...here to see if there was any new Seahawks news. And this is what I get. Shouldn't this be in the shack? Doesn't seem like main-forum material.

As this community becomes more and more populous, there will be a greater number of posters and personalities that rub each other the wrong way.

I have been using the friend/foe feature frequently, myself, John. For different reasons, but the experiment has been modestly helpful. It has flaws, but will address some of the issues you are having.

It's funny because I never really made any crude remarks on the net before today. I'm just relaxing and found bone to pick with people against those who share my sense of humor.

I personally believe that there are plenty of intelligent adults who find raunchiness to be funny (yes, myself included) and I don't like being spoken down to because I find the concept of violent diarrhea to be funny. I mean, come-on. It's liquid poop spluttering out of someone's bum...

I'm moving this to the lounge, but I think there is a valid point that it becomes increasingly difficult to enjoy intelligent conversation when they consistently devolve into stupid "jokes" that get perpetuated and repeated. This place is what it is for a reason, and part of that reason is we try to maintain some standards outside the shacked forums.

Might as well "FOE" me, not attacking you or anyone else who may agree, I'm just volunteering now so this will not be a problem in the future.

I'm not going to police myself in the future (aside from the regular forum rules of course) because someone finds my humor too "immature", BTW I am 31 years old.

This isn't about small children on the forum - it's about the adults who act like teenagers who can't seem to relate to the world in any other way then through their d**K. It's about not needing to read about what's going on with your penis related to the Hawks. Seriously, man ... take it to "The Shack".

I see what you're saying - might be easier to have a mod hit them with a code of conduct PM message.

Seems conduct-related / freedom of speech / individualistic personalities, etc topics come up every year. I just don't like the aura and machismo we see on other fan sites to show up here. It rears it's ugly head every so often, but for the most part we don't get that much of it. It's tough because this board caters to all walks of life and all education levels. Just because a guy expresses himself in a 13 year old's vernacular, it doesn't mean his point isn't valid. The 12's are lining up to get on this site - as we saw when we landed Percy Harvin and the site crashed from over serving. Wonderful for our community and I applaud the spirit and conduct on this forum which makes it all possible.

The fact that there is a Shack clearly signals that it is not the intention of the forum's creators to just let "anything go" on any forum. Time and place do apply here.

We could debate all day about whether silly penis jokes are innocuous enough to stay on the main forum, but let's not have any more of that business about "we're all adults" equating to "anything goes". If that were true, there wouldn't be a Shack.

I totally agree Hawkstorian. The English language of full of adjectives that can be used to express different levels of excitement or rage for that matter, without getting crude or vulgar. Knowing when the use of such language is appropriate or not should have been taught by your parents. It is really all about social graces, either your parents instilled them in you or they didn't.

There is a time and a place for phallic humor, but it is not appropriate at all times, nor in all forums (something which SacHawk2.0 and his ilk cannot comprehend). Having never experienced premature ejaculation on any occasion in the past, I find it difficult to imagine the signing of any player, even to my favorite sports franchise, could elicit such a response from my loins. If such an event did indeed transpire, meaning my mouth lay agape whilst my eyelashes fluttered and unspeakable things were happening within my undergarments, I am confident that I would consult a physician as my primary course of action and would probably abstain from posting my shameful act to a public forum for all to see.

For those that don't agree with John,,,,,,piss off.

This site has been family friendly on the main forum since its inception in 1998.

If you don't like it,,,,,LEAVE

We won't miss you childish bullshit at all. (yes its ok to talk about bulls shit)

My kids read these forums all the time with me, so I'm hoping that we can tone it down. I'm just a poster here, sharing my thoughts once in a while. IMHO, it should be treated as a family site. Otherwise, the shack is the place to let F bombs and such go. If you're kids are reading the shack site, then it becomes a parental issue and that is your discretion.

True, but....an orgasmic experience is the ultimate level of excitement and can ONLY be expressed as such. Some things rise to that level and it simply is efficient communication to express it as such. Nothing else really does and would seem silly and prudish to try to express it otherwise.

So loosen up Hawkstorian and get off your high horse, come down from your ivory tower. It's just an expression. An accurate one.

So you all will know the moderator staff spends countless hours every day editing and deleting F word stuff and sending PMs to people who use them.

We appreciate the groundswell of users themselves making it known how things are done to the "younger" crowd.

Agreed, its an expression of bliss but unfortunately it is overused. Does it have its place in the main forum based on the precedence and rules instituted? No. Should it? Not my call, but why not?
People are constantly searching for colorful and unique ways to express themselves, I'm not sure how describing how you are feeling by describing an elative experience that we've all gone through(hopefully) is "middle school" humor, maybe its the treatment of sex as secretive, taboo and not to talk about in mixed company that is, in fact, childish and immature.

Like I said -- I don't care if you care.

I'm not telling anyone how to run the forum.

I'm just telling you the action I'm taking and why and probably just venting a little. If that gets you all in a lather then that says more about you than me.

If the Seahawks signing someone is literally orgasmic to you... I think you have issues. Or really bad experiences.

Remember how you acted when you went to your girlfriend's parents' house? That's kind of how you should act in the main forum.

It is still possible to argue and make fun of people without offending sensibilities in the main forum. Canhawk consistently cracks me up in a PG13 manner in the main forum. Remember that guy asking for the value oc tickets he owned who was clearly a scalper? Peaches managed to give him a shoeing within the constraints of the main forum. If you really need to drop some F-bombs or boast about the pythonesque qualities of your panty pinky, then there's the shack.

The biggest thing I have learned in life is that context is not a myth. You wouldn't shout swearywords at your kids' sports day, but you would at the CL. Remember, Hillary Clinton said that it takes a village. She was actually describing how many women had to be at hand to keep Bill satisfied, but I think that it's applicable in other situations as well.

I totally agree Hawkstorian. The English language of full of adjectives that can be used to express different levels of excitement or rage for that matter, without getting crude or vulgar. Knowing when the use of such language is appropriate or not should have been taught by your parents. It is really all about social graces, either your parents instilled them in you or they didn't.

True, but....an orgasmic experience is the ultimate level of excitement and can ONLY be expressed as such. Some things rise to that level and it simply is efficient communication to express it as such. Nothing else really does and would seem silly and prudish to try to express it otherwise.

So loosen up Hawkstorian and get off your high horse, come down from your ivory tower. It's just an expression. An accurate one.


Agreed, its an expression of bliss but unfortunately it is overused. Does it have its place in the main forum based on the precedence and rules instituted? No. Should it? Not my call, but why not?
People are constantly searching for colorful and unique ways to express themselves, I'm not sure how describing how you are feeling by describing an elative experience that we've all gone through(hopefully) is "middle school" humor, maybe its the treatment of sex as secretive, taboo and not to talk about in mixed company that is, in fact, childish and immature.


But dont you see? SalishHawkFan, you were able to convey the exact same message, using an adjective that was nether rude or crude......."orgasmic". There is nothing wrong with sexually expressive emotions, they can be appropriate without being vulgar. Compelling, thrilling, exhilarating, enthralling, even sexy would work to describe how you feel about a player joining the team.

You might want to avoid fieldgulls then. Every piece of news is met with at least 50 such comments, many of them green, exclaiming the wonders of not wearing pants.

That said, if Seattle drafts Ryan Swope, John Simon, Armonty Bryant, Matt Scott and Courtney Gardner... yeah... I'll probably end up on your FOES list. I won't be able to contain myself.

Kearly, we'll still think well of you if you squeal like a teenage school girl after the draft; it's ok.

Thanks John. This has been needed to be said for quite some time.

There's a lot more dangerous places for kids on the internet than a forum that has an occasional inappropriate post. After age 8 they know all the words anyway - don't let .NET raise your kids - do it yourself.
