A Reminder Of The Site Rules

Things have been getting way too heated around here. Maybe it's the dead zone of the offseason, maybe Washington's crappy June weather has prolonged cabin fever, but we are getting way out of hand over trivial OTAs and coach-speak.

So take a step back, take a deep breath, and tell yourself that this is a dumb blog following a dumb team playing a dumb sport that has absolutely no bearing on your day-to-day life. If you're so invested in the Seahawks that you spend energy getting into spiteful, personal wars about who might be the starting QB, you need to re-think your priorities in life.

Here are the site rules. For you new posters, click that link, read it, absorb it, try to be better posters. For the veterans, click it, read it, absorb it, stop falling into bad habits.

As a mod, I prefer to stay hands-off in the offseason since there is so little content, but the past week has had so many heated threads I was forced to crack down. Bickering and sniping is bad enough when football is happening, it's just pathetic in the middle of June.

This is not a threat, but a plea. Relax. Find something else to soothe your nerves. Baseball is a very relaxing sport. If the weather ever clears up, Washington has some gorgeous locations to hike and camp and whatever. Your life doesn't have to be consumed by football, and it certainly shouldn't be consumed by pointless arguments on the Internet during a time of no football.

Training camp starts in a month, and soon football will be back and we will all be here doing our thing. Until then, take the time to find some balance in your life. If your only goal is to make endless FanPosts about the same subject, or create alt accounts to evade bans, then I don't hate you. I pity you.
