I posted this in another thread, but feel it necessary to share it with all. It is edited to make it both more digestible and less confrontational, which, I think, is the whole point. Peace!

<B>This is directed to anyone who feels the need to belittle our team or moderators, and is not meant to attack anyone in particular.</B>

One should remember that this is a PRIVATE website that is funded entirely out of the pocket of Andrus, its creator. Many of us have bought into his vision, and this has become the largest and most successful of all Saints fan websites. he pays for all of the equipment and servers himself. Additionally, it is one of the classiest and best run fan forums on the Internet. Surf around and you will see. One of the things that has kept it classy, is the work done by our moderators to disallow the kind of name calling and language that is prevalent on many of the other boards.

Many of us try to help Andrus in a number of ways, primarily donations and becoming subscribing members. Usually, the people who complain the loudest about ads, (you don't see them if you are a subscriber), the moderators, (all volunteers to keep the peace), and the inability to criticize players openly, (many players have family here on the board), are people who do nothing to help further the board, i.e., donating or subscribing. While it is ok to say the defense is terrible, it is not ok to say, "Player X sucks." Even then, it helps not to show negativity all the time. This is just common decency, and separates us from the bottom feeders of the Internet.

This board started from a very meager and tight knit community, and as it grew, members wished to keep the original feel and family friendly aspects of the original. Its success and growth is a testament to the way it has been run. No one is required to be here, and if one doesn't like the rules, one doesn't have to stay. Everyone is free to go elsewhere for their info.

My suggestion is to read the guidelines listed at the top of the main SSF page for all new posters. Even many of our regular posters have not done so. After reading those and digesting the information listed therein, you may decide this is not the place for you. If you find that you have no problem abiding by the rules, please continue to be a welcome member of the message board. Even better, donate, subscribe, or both, and you will find a great deal of reward in the form of faster service, fewer, if any, ads, and the ability to bypass "the server is busy" message that shows up during peak usage times in case of huge news that often takes place during times of crisis or great success. Examples include the draft, playoffs, big trades, serious injuries, and other big news that can cause the servers to crash.

Andrus has increased the server capabilities at great cost to himself. Those of us who choose to support this great source of Saints info truly reap the rewards. Why not be a bigger part of things? Subscribe. Even a little goes a long way. My monthly pledge of a meager $10 comes out of my PayPal account, and I know that others give much more, but I am doing my small part to help offset the costs to a wonderful gentleman who has gone through much lately.

Thanks for being here, and enjoy all of the many benefits the board has to offer. Join as a subscriber, and you'll get even more.

Ken

Well said, Ken. As a female subscriber I can tell you when I found Saints Report I was so happy. It really is a community and I have been blessed to make friends here, some of whom I met in person at the Chargers game Sunday. That added so much to the experience of the game and I will post more on my blog here on the Blogs forum later after I return home from San Diego.

I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air Saints Report is in contrast to all the other forums at which I tried to find any Saints-related info. Once I found it I was hooked. Not just by the timeliness of info but by the warm welcome I received by so many others here.

Like you, I know one would be hard pressed to find an equal, much less better Saints fans forum. It simply does not exist. :ezbill:

Thanks again to Andrus and the Admins and Moderators for being so diligent in making and keeping this a wonderful place to be! :worthy:

Been here just about everyday since the Iron Era days. Even if it is for 10 min to check news or 2 hours to read threads. Things have changed but they have to especially for us old timers it happens and is to be expected it just has changed in different ways some good some bad. I appreciate Andrus and the mods you guys have been steady and very professional and personable. Thanks SR will always be the best Saints community on the net.

This is a rough time for Saints fans and SR in particular. Just take a few minutes and think before you post, it's not that hard.

I joined after the Saint main website shut down. I'm glad I was accepted in with open arms. It's a home really. People have passed away, children born and we get to know them in a certain way. We all experience the ups and downs of life together. It's pretty touching if you think about it......really. :bigcry:

Didn't mean to get all sentimental on you guys and gals.

It's nice that you can feel that way. Most of the people on the board are indeed like family. That, I think, is what is concerning right now. Most of us don't want to see the board evolve into a free for all, full of degenerates that have no sense of civility. The use of foul language and vitriolic attacks is getting more and more common. I seriously wonder sometimes if it isn't time to go completely to a paid subscription kind of system.

The degenerates we are talking about that have lowered the average IQ of the board. That's who.

this was my question, but it's already up to three.

I'd assume that the mods might have the ability to see who red thumbs things and I'm sure they wouldn't be surprised to see who it was that did it.

some people are only happy if they're miserable and like to make sure that everyone else around them is miserable too so that they're not alone in their misery. that juju don't work on me, so hey...screw 'em.
