Muppits, in the past few weeks complaints about the use of language have grown in numbers as Keo.co.za is exposed to a wider audience.
While most of us have been here for two or more years and have grown to know the nuances of each other and that more often than not a subtle dig is a great way to inspire debate and set off a flaming war that never ends. However there has been a noticeable rise in the use of racist terminology and derogatory terms to describe each other, players and coaches.
I am loathe to remove posting rights from people but quite frankly the situation is getting out of hand and the stream of complaints has grown to a noticeable level. Nor do i wish to increase the limits on what you can and cannot say. So i would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the following.
