Discussing the kind of community we want

There was a really ugly incident here at Big Blue View over the weekend where a new commenter to the site dropped the 'N' word in reference to Sinorice Moss. That comment has been deleted, and the poster is no longer part of the BBV community.

My thanks, by the way, to those of you who 'flagged' that comment or e-mailed me to bring it to my attention.

There have also been some profanity-filled tirades and other 'over the line' comments lately.

Let me be as plain as I can. That kind of stuff will not be tolerated here, for any reason. This is not one of those places on the Internet where you can hide behind the anonymity of your screen name, and say anything you want about anyone -- regardless of how vile or repugnant -- without consequences.

Big Blue View was created as a place for intelligent, mature and friendly discussion of the New York Giants and football in general. I will do everything in my power to make sure it stays that way.

With that in mind, the Community Guidelines have been re-written to explicitly lay out the type of community Big Blue View has always been, and will continue to be.

If you cannot live by these rules -- which, basically, comes down to acting like a mature, intelligent adult who can respect the opinions of others -- don't comment. No personal attacks, no profanity just for the sake of profanity, no juvenile ranting and no racism. If you don't like the rules and you haven't signed up, don't. Also, please try to use full words and spell things properly.

What makes this place special is the wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly community of people who come here every day. We welcome the new people coming here as the site grows, and we are glad to have you. We insist, however, that you follow the rules of the road.
