    I've always known the staff here to be fair, which is why this is my most frequented board. Probably why this was something that caught my eye. Seemed pretty out of character for the big bosses...

    not really, when something is reported, it's checked into. As I just said, if he had only frequented the pofo I wouldn't have worried about it.

    I put it back up, and they took it down again before I could. I was going to take it down myself. But they changed it to something they liked better. It would have been little issue had they just removed it and also removed now two (2) others that are pro nra.

    Common courtesy also leaves room for telling the member what is happening and why.

    Thanks for showing me that one. I have been seeing another one. So now there is at least two more allowed and mine is not. What gives. Are they special or the right flavor?
    I bet they give me three more pints for "annoyance". That was my charge "annoyance".

    Unless the now two other infractions are removed and replaced with a moderators preferred avatar, this board has actually become, what they say they are trying to prevent. A one sided political machine passing itself off as a sports forum.

I also feel like his signature isn't inherently political.
    We don't share what how we handle TOS violations with the gen pop. For example, the OP decided to share an infraction he got. That's on him. We won't do it. We also won't share whether we remove an avatar, sig. etc. with everybody. So, it makes sense that you haven't seen the political rule enforced. You probably haven't seen the majority of rules we enforce unless you're the one breaking them.

    Just saying that I've never noticed a political avatar being removed. I just figured it wasn't enforced too strictly/didn't even know it was a rule. Of course there are thousands of posters, so I'm sure one or two has slipped by me. You guys do a great job though and I never notice any mod "power-trips", so that's why this particular case struck me as odd (not saying it was done intentionally), but it's resolved.

    Why?

    If you left up the avatar asking people to join the NRA, then you should have left mine that encourages people to "Stop th NRA"

    Since when did personal politics enter the picture especially from a moderator who is supposed to set the tone here. Do moderators use their own agenda's here? or do they follow the rule that everyone has a voice?

    Removing both my avatar and signature line without consulting me was wrong. And the moderator that did it should not be allowed to moderate as they cannot be impartial or fair on this forum.

    Why?
    Do you understand we are all volunteers here and do this for the love of the site, the fans, and our Dolphins. Why would we go out of our way to piss in someones wheaties? We are very fair to all of our members so they can enjoy this site if they follow the TOS. Many times this staff will go above and beyond for the members of this site.

    Thanks to Like2God for the great Avatar/Sig!
