I love y’all, but I’ve been really disappointed in this place lately.
First: The politics are totally out of hand. In the shoutbox, in the game threads, everywhere. I get it, it’s an election year, and a contentious one at that (aren’t they all?), but it’s gotten stupid. We have a politics forum for a reason.
Second: We have been really trashing some of our own here lately. We all need to remember that Niners are Niners. When you post about someone in the family, you need to know that the Athletic department reads this board, the players read this board, the parents read this board, the recruits read this board, and the recruits parents read this board. Have some tact.
Mac works too hard for some of the nonsense that has gone on here lately. This board has always had a way of attracting some strong opinions, but lately we’ve had a little bit too much crazy. I have heard more people say “I’m never going back there” or “I will never join that place” in the last 365 than anytime in my fandom. Getting into it with visiting fans is for social media and the CUSA board. We don’t need to let them derail our threads here. It’s a bad look.
In conclusion, I am calling out the moderators to help us clean this up. I’m not even sure who they are anymore to be honest, and that’s a problem. I am well aware that I post too much nonsense to be a moderator. I am also calling out individuals. We need to be better. We need to remember that to some kid who we are recruiting right now in Texas, this may be his only window into the pulse of our fan base, and we need to be, and do better.
