DKW 86 6,350 Posted July 28, 2006 Share Posted July 28, 2006 Recently AUNation was accused of hosting pics of Prothro's injuries from the game. I want to tell you all that AUNation never hosted nor encouraged those pics. Truth: We had a pic from a remote host opened on a thread here way back in Oct. We nuked the thread after 20 minutes when a mod found it. Truth: We recently had a poster LINK and article from SundayMorningQuarterback.com. The article was valid, but for some reason one of two pics accompanying it were of Prothro's injury. The link came with a warning for graphic pics. We nuked the entire thread as soon as a mod found it. Truth: An Admin on the site and I acted together to get an site to remove the pics way back when and they did. Truth: I acted alone and got the pics removed from an site myself as well. Truth: For the record: We here at AUNation are likely a more mature crowd than you will find on most of the other sports message boards. We have a very strict NO LINK-NO POST policy. It sometimes gets very tiring here talking about an issue because you better have the info to back up what you are talking about. Truth: We also have a very strict "No Bashing the Players Rule." Probably one of the few sites on the web to have one. Some sites are now adopting it. I have been sent links to a few sites that basically parrot our "Rules" section. Rant: I am a big boy. I can take the crap from almost anyone. I will however defend that which I have spent my time and money building. We have posters here now that are squeamish about some clearly humorous pics in this forum. That is a good gage showing that the entire membership is mature and has grown accustom to our policies. I actually like that they are squeamish. But these pics are absolutely not to be taken seriously. If you cannot laugh at yourself than you really are a little person. Check out what is up on our avatars page. Avatars We can laugh at our rivals and laugh at ourselves too. Conclusion: to scream and curse at me about something you obviously are mis-informed of only shows your ignorance. I think that many here will see the truth in these comments. Please believe me and this board, we may laugh at you and laugh at ourselves but we never be cruel about it nor will we be scandalously sick either. Posts here will never be to denigrade anyone on purpose, not you, not your school, and especially not an active player. So before you slam me and this nessage board please use the search feature and do a little research. If anyone on another board had watched the NO LINK-NO POST rule on their board, there would be a whole lot less anger and acrimony than there was yesterday and today. Thanks for your time...*Please note: I have had my say and never named an individual nor even the site as I wish and hope to maintain our relationship with them. Man, when does football start?
