I don't know about you guys but it gets annoying. Also when someone posts news that are likely read by every user. I don't want to know that we have mentally retarded people in here.

Sometimes I come here without checking the newspapers so I'm glad some post links.

But I know what you are refering to I think. If you're gonna post a link, at least have something to say about it.

And please scan throught the thread to see if there is somewhere it can be crammed..

Hell, it's going to get "bumped" to the top of the page anyway.

Yeah it's annoying. I made a comment about it this week because there was a thread with almost the same header of another thread about 5 post down.

Sometimes you don't scroll or read all the post but on a normal day there are usually 10-15 differents posts that get replys so it's easy to see the "new" one.

Better safe than sorry.

So what if there are multiple posts about the same subjects...skip'em.

Ever thought that someone thaught what they heard or read is news worthy and post it immediately without reading the entire board?

You can always go to a board where there is no news. Then you will miss the 5 threads about the same subject. Once you lost it, you'll realize what ya' had.

You know what else is annoying?? When someone can't go a single post without insulting someone.

And who cares if there are several posts on the same subject. They all get merged anyway. Like FFiB said, better safe than sorry.

WTF are you talking about! This is the one site that actually has people scanning the board, and mixing these type threads together!


Let me say that I think you have just made a personal attack on, not only this sites owner, but the rest of us as well!


You sure need to rethink how you respond to posters. Like I tried to point out to you before. This place is for EVERYONE registered, not just YOU!

Not like I am an asshole or anything, or insult anyone. You are just reffering to when that incident that you had to go far enough to pm me about it. Don't pm me if you have to tell me something like that again. I don't insult anyone in here like you are claiming to and if I say anything close to an insult its because someone went over the line with me. Nothing against you muck but if you don't like me then I don't have a reason to care other than that, I have nothing against you and like reading what you have to write.

Please calm down boys.

I don't know what goes on between you guys but I think that Muck just pointed out that some board members can't stand being contradicted by others and for them the best way to let them know is by insulting them.

You think I have nothing better to do here than pick fights with posters?? I'm sorry, but that is just not accurate. This is not an isolated incident. Look no further than this very thread you created. "I don't want to know that we have mentally retarded people in here."

Here you are insulting the entire board. Exactly who went over the line with you in this instance??

As a moderator, it is my job to try to keep things moving smoothly on the boards and prevent/end conflict. And settling things via PM is generally the best way to go. People do not want to see two or more people arguing about something that has nothing to do with the Dolphins. Heck, arguments in general are enough to drive people away.

It's just like if you are having an argument with your wife/girlfriend/whatever at a party or other public place. Do you yell and scream at each other right there?? Of course not. You go outside or somewhere private. On these boards, you take it to PM. Believe me, if we settled everything in public, we wouldn't have much of a readership left.

You may not feel that you are not being obnoxious or insulting to anyone. But I assure you, a lot of posters on this board would disagree with you. You throw personal jabs and insults in almost every one of your posts.

And rather than start a flamewar or call you out in public, I had the decency to message you in private about it, where you pretty much ignored me and told me to mind my own business. Well, I cannot do that. I have a responsibility to make you and everyone else here my business.

And yet here we are, ruining another thread because you don't want to settle this in private. You obviously are an intelligent person who has a great interest in the Dolphins. So why can't you just make your points and be done with it, without the constant putdowns and chest-thumping?? It negates so much of any point(s) you're trying to make. Why make 5 valid points and then close the post by spitting in the reader's face??

Understand that this is not directly only at you. This is for all of us. We need to get back to debating without telling each other how stupid they are, how much smarter we are, or how wrong they were a week ago. If we are to continue to grow, we have to make this a place where people can freely exchange information/ideas without reservation. Remember, we're all on the same team here. :)

There is a saying in disaster services: Disaster Services are an organized confusion

I find it funny how people always lay down in an "already made bed" and then complain about the mattress, the blanket, the pillows, the TV is to far away etc.

You can do it better...go do it better. Spend time on it and create the perfect Forum where there is nobody insulting anybody and no repeat threads and such things. Do it...I dare you.

This is a global community...like most MBs. For some the news they hear are late breaking and worth sharing. They do it...so what. If ya read the topic don't read the thread.

I treat a forum like a bar..a global bar. Even if ya go to your neighborhood pub you may repeat the same subject over and over with different patrons. Are you gonna tell them to shut up because you already discussed the very same subject with the guy across the bar?

Plus, obviously there is more than just one "doorknob" on this board because even repeat posts get different poster's responses.

I guess this thread not only insulted the owner, the moderators, the mentors but also most of the posters....wayyyyy to go.
