To hold both to the same standards is ridiculous. Create a live game chat and let the comments and emotion of the moment flow.
3. Set up a new forum called "the Crapper" or "the Toilet" or "the Dump" or "the Abyss". Here you can have all the Dunn HOF vs. Dunn SUX and Marty HOF vs. Marty SUX banter, RRS vs. RC, ROY vs. CYA, RISP vs. RSVP... etc. you want. And make it a free for all... anything goes.
4. Ban use of term "Newbie" n00b when refering to any poster. Term is often used as a form of insult. 30 years of being a Reds fan does not make one a "Newbie".
