Lately staff and members of Finheaven have observed some pretty brutal political mudslinging going on between Kerry and Bush supporters throughout the site. We understand that it's an election year and you want to spread the name of your candidate in as many places as possible. In order to do this effectively, we have the following parameters for you.

1) There is a Political/War Forum, follow our TOS in there and you can talk as much trash about Kerry, Bush, Nader, and TerryTate, who wishes to be a write in candidate ;)

2) We are willing to let you promote your presidential candidate by choosing a minimum of one accessory to do so. You may either put a quote in your sig, use your minimum one image in your signature, or use your avatar. In the picture you may have something positive in your sig such as the following....

You can put pictures of your candidate in your sig as long as they are in a positive manner....

Political mudslinging images are not acceptible, such as this one....

We will use our discretion and remove them if they are too tasteless....we dont want politics being involved in the main forum in a deragatory/negative manner....

Thanks for your cooperation and happy surfing!!!!

Something I've always wondered:

How can anyone vote for a canidate who slings mud at another canidate? Is that the type of person you would want working for you? Pretty immature approach at getting a job, actually.

Thanks mods, it sometimes gets hard to concetrate on the important things in life like football and women when idiots keep bringing up politics. Another item ya might want ta bring up is more people need to put attractive women in their sig. That could make this the one stop site for all intelligent football fans in America.

Thank you! It's about time we see a stop to all this politics in the Dolphins portions of our beloved forums. We all have our opinions, but that doesn't mean we're entitled to share them in the places that they aren't supposed to be expressed. Great job mods! :D

I totally agree. Why use this platform as a means of supporting your political point of view?? Why even allow it?
Who really cares to see that type of stuff at a Miami Dolphins fan site??

Poll?

I vote keep them. Why remove them? Who is to say one persons interest is less or more important than any other interest? We all should be allowed to express some individuality. Doesn't matter if its politics, surfing, a band etc.

I do applaud the Mods for keeping the dirt out. We can be supportive and yet be positive about it. As always this is the best fan site in the NFL.

Bunch of reasons, moving out with my college roommates, trying to ressurect their band, get a couple jobs(hard right now, will be easier once school starts). Just have fun...btw, Tempe is home to my new favorite bar, The Library, I could die happy there.

Some want all political stuff sticken.
Some just want the inflammatory stuff stricken.
Some would like everything to be permitted.
Some don't care.

That's why we settled in the middle. :)

Some posters just need to express their political views even though its a fruitless endeavor as no one changes their minds and whats worse "Its boring".I would eliminate the political accessories altogether and keep the political forum for those that "must" express their views.That way the rest of us can avoid exposure to the SPAM.

I think the political sigs are okay, but I opted to dump my Bush-Cheney sig in favor of pimping the websites I write for. Ah, self-interest...the essence of being a Republican. ;)

So you can have a half nude chick, but a slam on Bush or Kerry is offensive?

Hell, we even let Bills fans post here. Way beyond offensive and pathetic.

JeffJewell
07-23-2004, 09:12 PM
More to the point of this website, you can PhotoShop Wannestedt and Fiedler all you want, but doing the same thing to Bush or Kerry is forbidden.

That's kinda wack.

When people get upset or moved about the Wannstedt and Fiedler Photoshopping, they post their thoughts.

Difference is, the Fiedler and Wannstedt talk is on-topic.

Lol...if you can't vote for any candidate who is/has slung mud it's going to leave you a VERY narrow ballot.

I come here to talk about my Fins. If I want to talk about politics there is a forum for it. There should not be any politics on this forum at all. No Pic's, no words, no to all it! It's disgusting that the Mod's on this football board actually make it easier for this crap to seep in, instead of just drawing a line in the sand saying NO POLITICS on this board.

Hell if we want Pic's, lets put some Cheerleaders up at least...

--RossI dont like it ethir, but i like it just how the MODs have it. Whats wrong with showing your views as long as its in a polite manner? If no1 talks about them, but there just there it will never b a problem. What about the people who visit the political and main forum? Are they supposed to just keep switching avatars and sigs every 30 seconds? :up: Good Work MODss, what your doing now is perfect!

Because I don't care to see what one's political view point is on a football board. I would rather talk football on a football board, and if I want to talk politics I can talk politics on the politics board. It's got nothing to with politeness or rudeness, its what hell does it have to with football?


If no1 talks about them, but there just there it will never b a problem. What about the people who visit the political and main forum?

Like I said the first time they have a forum for that. Take it there. I sure as hell didn't say a thing about elimating it from the website.


Are they supposed to just keep switching avatars and sigs every 30 seconds? :up:

These guys are computers wizards. They could stop that if a guy refused to abide the guidleines.


Good Work MODss, what your doing now is perfect!

I think it sucks. I want to talk football without a bunch of Billboards of politicians in my face...
