Inspired Reminder: Community Guidelines

Every so often, it's necessary to reiterate the guidelines here at BRB. They're short and simple, but people sometimes forget them. Thus, memories refreshed for every commenter:

No personal attacks. Treat one another with a modicum of courtesy. No questioning whether someone is sane, requires medication, engages in oral copulation, comes from illegitimate stock, etc. No insulting visitors. In short, keep it above the belt.

Criticize a point of view on the Texans expressed in a post or comment or all you want, but do it without putting the person down. We're all entitled to our opinions, and we're all entitled to express those opinions without being subjected to hateful comments. I'm not going to referee, and we're going to keep the level of discussion above petty name-calling. It doesn't add anything to the conversation, and it stops now.

The next step is for me to start deleting comments; the step after that is banning users. In the two and a half years BRB has been around, I've never banned a user, and I continue to hope that I won't have to start doing it.

Play nice, for chrissakes. None of us is eight years old, and this isn't a playground. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
