Dear Daily Norseman readers, contributors, and community:
Let me begin my post by saying I love this blog. As a long time die-hard Vikings fan, I can say I have found a place that has consistent and frequent quality updates on the ongoings of my favorite men in purple. I do not post on the site frequently, but I do read frequently, because in my opinion, no blog on the web covers the Vikings as well as this gem of a page does.
That said, there has been a precipitous decline in the quality and civility of certain discussions here. I will not name names, but YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE (caps intended). At this point, I would like to make a formal request for just an eency-weency bit more moderation on the site. I know this idea has been discussed before, and the general consensus seems to be that everybody loves the open forum, "let each man have his say" format. I agree, but when freedom of speech turns into a shouting match, I draw the proverbial line.
Please, please, please keep the Norseman a respectable, quality place to discuss the Minnesota Vikings. I don't come here to yell nonsensically, and I would appreciate it if others didn't either. There is a reason I choose this blog to get updates and insight... If I wanted asinine bickering I'd go back to watching Pardon the Interruption.
Thank you, one and all, for making this site the best Vikings blog on the world wide web. In the words of the poster child for respectability, "stay classy" Daily Norseman.
