    But hey, there's other sites if we don't like it, I know. Just seems like a mounting trend. One of your moderators arbitrarily closed a thread in the political forum not because it got offensive, not because of profanity, but because it got a little off topic. I've seen this more than a few times lately. I'm not b--tching or anything, just raising a red flag, and hope it's noted, that's all.
    jmo but I think when things get a little out of control you have to pull the reigns (sp) a little tighter than you would like to get things back in order.

    He didn't even hint at that from what I saw. What I read stated that there was nothing wrong with posting negative threads, as long as it wasn't simply ranting REPEATEDLY. Even ranting wasn't a huge deal becuase it is pretty commonplace on any fan site I have ever been on after a loss. But I have never seen it get as bad as it does here. They flood the list so I have to go through a couple of pages of topics just to get to one with any substance (positive or negative). Then, if you refute what little evidence they actually include, you are immediately labeled a "homer." Actually, this last thing makes absolutely no sense to me as a response to someone defending the team after a loss. Back in da hood, that was always someone that rooted for the home team only when they were winning, so that would make the fanatics (week 1) turn ranters (week 2) the "homers." Regardless, there's no need for name calling in the first place, and that goes both ways, but homer is BY FAR the most tossed around one.

    Back to the point; repeat, ranting, "so and so sucks," threads and the posters that make them are a nusiance and keep others from being heard. Don't like Ronnie? Post in the already made thread on the subject. Why waste our time and block truly new threads with something that is already out there? Its a total disregard for the TOS. Don't agree with those? Then how did you sign up? You have to agree to them before joining. If you didn't read them, thats your bad. Why should the other members suffer?

    I don't mean you personally TorontoFin. By the way and totally off topic (not worth starting a thread about it in the main forum ), love your city. Looking into going to U of T for grad school. Taste of the Danforth :drool:, Jazz Festival, and Film festival are my favorites. Those wind tunnels or whatever they are suck something fierce though.

    Which thread? I am willing to guarantee that it had something else wrong with it that you don't know about.

    Do all that and then see people coming to the message board deluging it with nonsense threads and tell me you would'nt want to put a stop to it.

    All A.J. is doing is trying to get the message board under control...he owns it. If he wanted to he could just start kicking people.

    The "Old" posters have helped build this site. No one gets any loot from this, it is a labour of love.

    I am a VERY small part of this community and I have watched the message board get worse over the last little while. I know what this board is like when the conversation is intelligent and the threads are well thought through...and I want it to return to that.

    A.J. contributes all the time in the VIP forum. Not as often as he would like to I am sure but, HE IS BUSY RUNNING THIS SITE!

    I've said it many occasions, people that don't do Webmastering, design, development or maintenance have ZERO clue about how much work goes into keeping a site this large, with this many members up to date and under control...

    No one is passing judgement on "what is stupid and what is'nt". All A.J. is trying to do is get some people to use COMMON SENSE. People, by nature, like attention. They want their views heard and addressed. That being said, is it a requirement that we have 20 threads going about Ronnie Brown?

    I've been here for over a year now. I think I have started MAYBE 20 threads related to a football topic.

    Why? Because I do not think I have to start a new thread about something when there is already one going.

    Quote Originally Posted by SanDiegoDolphan

    It's like a car crash...you have to look.

    A.J. started this thread as a service. Some of the "Older " posters have been getting frustrated with the quality of the main board and he addressed the situation....something that SOME OF US are very thankful for and something he has EVERY right to do.
