Respect and maturity in postings

    I was so impressed with a posting from OilerBuck that I wanted to give it a thread all by itself...

    "it is one thing to point out an error in someones judgement. It's a totally different thing to come off as a self-righteous, know-it-all ... I have a little tip for you - being RIGHT isn't always what makes you a better man... there is something to be said for respect and humility even in victory. "

    Sometimes there's too much testoserone and lack of respect in some of the postings... We can elevate this whole site with an effort to avoid name calling and personal attacks... I never belonged to BN but I have certainly gotten the impression this is what caused a number of folks to come here... Let's do it one step better...

    Maybe rule of thumb could be... "if I'm a parent of a player or prospect and reading this posting .. is my opinion of OSU better or worse?" .. because at the end of the day, I believe it is the intent of ALL members to elevate OSU in the eyes of all.

    Clarity and mods, you fellas are great ... but we can and should make your worlds easier.
  2. You are so right about OILERBUCK he seems to be one great guy and has earned my respect despite of opposite feeling on the Yanks...LOL!!

    Excellent post NJ, and I agree 100%. Some posters just don't think about what they've said before hitting the submit post button, and in some cases that is a terrible thing. As far as personal attacks against ones character and/or credibility is a whole different ball game and will always be around. But like you said this is far from BN and I think everyone here does a pretty good job of maintaining the quality of posting here with a few exceptions. DiHard!:wink:

    I'd say this group does an excellent job of discussing without flaming...for the most part.

    When people first get here, it doesn't take them long to realize they need to have support for their opinions and/or know some football.

    The Planet is honestly the best football discussion on the net

    by the the original point....

    people started coming here because they were NOT allowed to name call on bnuts.....someone could start an idiotic post of "schnitker should be a tailback" and if anyone called the poster on it they were reprimanded...not the idiot who made the post....
