I removed the mod's name because he was pretty nice about it. That being said, I thought this was pretty absurd. /R/Cowboys definitely has a "fuck the Eagles" mentality; but no one is ever mean to "visiting" team fans without being downvoted to hell by our fanbase. It's just crazy that we can't even cheer for our teams anymore without offending someone.

In case you're curious, this was the post in question.

You seem like a nice guy, so as long as I'm polite about it would you mind my dick up your ass?

It depends. Will you at least spit on it first?

Well, that's because I'm stupid!

And, yes, it's not the greatest quality. But it's the offseason and we're just kind of waiting for kickoff now.

Isn't that that point of the upvote/downvote system though? It allows the users to decide which content becomes visible to the broader audience.

How in the fuck is that offensive to anyone? You know what's offensive to my sensibilities? Censoring something like that.

I seriously don't know what kind of fanbase Reddit is trying to aim for. Some super Safe For Work website for people to waste their time instead of, you know, doing their job?

A simpler fanbase, a more predictable fanbase.. I am not sure exactly. It sucks when a company decides to change direction and leaves your demographic in the dust. I feel like that about Nintendo, and no its not just 'nostalgia'. They used to make genuinely unique and challenging games, now they pander to children and clueless parents.

Banter is not meant to be "safe", it's about cleverly shitting all over fanbases. It's supposed to make some people mad and they retaliate by firing back. When you plug up one or both sides because apparently equal platforms for banter make people feel "unwelcome", you take a lot of the fun out of sports discussion. You're taking the passion out. You're making it sterile and "safe" for everyone which is EXACTLY what's killing the NFL right now. There are definite lines that shouldn't be crossed in the name of passion (I'm looking at you, Raiders fanbase) but banter is far from that line. Pardon my use of "my/your team" but you're supposed to feel uncomfortable when your team is losing. You're supposed to get angry when your rival beats you and their fans laugh up a storm. You can't have the highs without the lows.

If you can't handle the banter, just watch the game alone and shut yourself out from discussion like all the other idiots who demand "safe spaces". You'd be doing everyone a favor.

As a philadelphian and a fan of the eagles i'm saddened by this, i looked forward to "fuck philly" posts because then it allowed me to post pics of michael irvin laying dead on the field at The Vet

This whole "safe space" thing is one of the most disingenuous and user insulting policies. It sets up your potential user as some kind of potential scumbag who is about to endanger other people. On the one hand it assumes you, the user are a potential threat. And on the other hand it assumes you are in an area full of immature users. Whenever I see "this is a safe space" written all over the website I just Nope the fuck outta there.

It's really just a "you're a dirty user and we can enforce whatever rules we want" policy. It's like a the customer is always wrong kind of policy, which makes total sense. As you will only see this policy on free, open to the public areas.

The thing that irks me most about social justice is that should you disagree with it in some way, it makes you look shitty because you're now technically against social justice/deference/whatever.

It's like living in a King of the Hill episode.

Wow.... Every sports fan knows that saying "fuck the ---" has zero meaning because everybody does it. Fuck the Cowboys. Tony Romo can suck my nuts
