Concerning talk about wrestlers/kids in high school etc.
Let's step back from the keyboard before hitting "Submit" after writing out our posts.
There is absolutely no place in the forum intended to be used to be hurtful towards kids.  That is not the purpose of this forum.
So, please think before hitting "Submit".
How about we try using this criteria...before hitting "submit":
1) May this hurt some young person or damage someones reputation? (if it will hurt someone don't hit "submit")
2) Am I doing this to be mean? (if you are doing it to be mean don't hit "submit")
3) Do I have real facts or hearsay? (if it's hearsay, don't "submit")
4) Am I doing anyone any good by posting this? (if you are not doing anyone any good don't hit "submit")
5) Opinion has a place, but not always.  (if your opinion is negative or hurtful, don't hit "submit")
Let's give kids a chance.

If there are hurtful things posted on the forum please contact me at
I frequently remove posts that I find objectionable, but will listen if sent emails directing me to problems.
