SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO POSTERS.
In a contest between two leading clubs during the championship season of 2011, the threads being crowded with patrons of the game, a gentleman occupying a seat in front of his computer, viewing the webpage lonestarball.com asked the posters who was going to pitch for them. The posters made no reply. He then asked a second time. The gentleman, his wife who sat with him, and others of both sexes, reading the webpage, were outraged upon seeing the poster reply in a loud, brutal tone, "Oh, go fuck yourself."
On being remonstrated with by his fellow-posters, who told him there were ladies present, he retorted he didn't give a damn, that they had no business there anyhow.
This shocking indecency was brought to the attention of the Moderators at the Philadelphia meeting in June, 2011, and a committee was appointed to report upon this internet crime, define and suggest for it a remedy.
In response to nearly one hundred communications addressed to noobs, lurkers and trolls, soliciting definite, positive and personal knowledge of obscene and indecent language upon LSB, the committee received a deluge of information that was so appalling as to be almost beyond belief, showing conclusively and beyond contradiction that there was urgent need for legislative action on the part of the Moderators.
That such brutal language as "You cock-sucking son of a bitch!" "You prick-eating bastard!" "You cunt-lapping dog!" "Kiss my ass, you son of a bitch!" "A dog must have fucked your mother when she made you!" "I fucked your mother, you sister, your wife!" "I'll make you suck my ass!" "You cock-sucker!" and many other revolting terms are used by a limited number of posters to intimidate noobs and opposing posters, and are promiscuously used upon LSB, is vouched for by the almost unanimous assertion of those invited to speak, and who are competent to speak from personal knowledge. Whether it be the language quoted above, or some other indecent and infamous invention of depravity, the Moderators are pledged to remove it from LSB, whether it necessitates the removal of the offender for a day or for all time. Any indecent or obscene word, sentence, or expression, unfit for print or the human ear, whether mentioned in these instructions or not, is contemplated under the law and within its intent and meaning, and will be dealt with without fear or favor when the fact is established by conclusive proof.
By Order of the Committee.
