I will start.

I have pm'd a few of you about this.
I will do my absolute best to make sure I am not disrespectful to any poster.
I gennerally only post 1 liners anyway.

But I am very careful NOT to call anyone a "slang" type name.
(progressive excluded;-))

I am asking that we all work a little harder to eliminate the "slang" name calling as it diminishes the position more than anything and is inciteful to others.

If I error, tell me I will correct it (progressive excluded;-)).
I know about hurt, I never intend to hurt anyone, let's all make a little better effort......ALL of us, both sides!!

Bimbo, fatso et al is what I am talking about.

Try to remember what brings us all here.........our LOVE for the DOGS!!


Can I get a witness??

I'm on board the RK Express!

It took a big man to make the call, and I'll try to live up to that request.

My apologies to fellow RTFers whom I may have stepped over the line with.

Happy Bumpers,
dave

What a bunch of pansies! Just kidding. I agree that we could all use a dose of civility from time to time. But I'm afraid that those of us who tend to be civil will continue to do so and the others will continue to demonstrate the quality of their upbringing.

Hey RK, I understand what you're asking for but its a lot like asking Tom and Jerry to play nice....its just not in most people's genetic makeup...politics and retrievers make strange bedfellows....

I am pretty sure I am as much of a BAMF as anyone here.


There are some newbies that flip the slang names pretty freely.
It serves no purpose and if it continues my guess is we will lose the forum.
Just my opinon.

Though I generally reserve my name calling for politicians, I find the name calling amongst RTF users to be entertaining.;-) Please don't stop as I have learned many new ways to swear/curse and I plan on using them in the future.

Good point, but as someone else pointed out on another thread, when someone comes on POTUS from out of nowhere and their first and sometimes only posts are here and not on the regular RTF it makes you wonder about their personal motives and agendas. the name calling and slangs only go to show how uncouth and somewhat immature some people are...they may own a retriever but that doesnt necessarily make them dog people...;)

I don't think I have ever name called when not in jest (except maybe once or twice out of utter frustration, and I apologize for that...). I'll continue to do the same as I always have as I trust that you guys (well, most of you) understand that if something questionable comes from my keyboard, it is probably an attempt at humor. If you don't understand that, you're a dumbass.:p;-)


That aside, I think it is an excellent idea RK.

are terms of endearment such as "Libs", "lefties", "environmental whackos", and "wing nuts" on the "do not use" list?

I would have to say that name calling with "terms of endearment" doesn't bother me unless used as a way to dismiss issues without discussing substance. Ultimately, calling a liberal a socialist is no more justified than calling a conservative a fascist. Both are historically inaccurate statements and both are said only to evoke an emotional response when intellect fails.

I find personal attacks -- those addressed at attempting to besmirch a person's personal or professional reputation simply because you don't like the views expressed -- to be unacceptable.

Coonazz!!!

That's it, I'm cooking some Cowboy gumbo come Thanksgiving day at 3:15pm CST! I'm gonna get some gree gree and ju ju spells on Mr Romo's voodoo doll. I don't care if Voodoo is Creole and not Cajun, just that I can borrow whatever I need from whichever culture I need at the time.

There are only two kinds of people in this world. Coonazzes and folks that want to be Coonazzes!;-)

No....the 16 hits with no sacks, no penaltys and 4 fines a week later for illegal hits on the QB!!
(did you miss that part??)

Congrats on your Lombardi Trophy!!
