    The fact remains the number who read but not post are many.  So if BDC maintains the current state of affairs they will lose more than just the regular posters, they will lose a connection to the new medium, posters are rendered "space waste" at this point.   Oh well maybe time to change and move on, I think my elementary experience as a poster needs to end, time to just read and learn elsewhere.  Better yet get back in snowshoeing hoping the winter last in not to be repeated here in NE.

    BTW, the hockey coverage at BDC is deplorable compared to the Patriots and Red Suckss, even the Celtics get more coverage on their draft picks than the Bs.

    NAS, yup, nothing like the land of milk and honey to understand the complexity of BDC.  Hey BDC, what time is it? Ha

    The flurry of changes ( nothing ) to this forum has my head spinning since I was last on BDC . Brad Marsh was slow. BDC, you are slower.

    Chowda, it's slow, but headed in the right direction.

    It appears that banned posters can start new discussions, but their posts are not viewable.

    I think they can't bump old threads, at least that much is good.

    I'm glad BDC doesn't do tech work for my company.  How long does it take to put back a preexisting feature such as "edit post" ?!?  With all due respect BadHabitude, why do we even need posts like yours to tell them that "banned posters can start new discussions".  You would think (or at least hope) that the techies behind this site would go over such basic shortcomings OR at least quickly rectify them.  It was a mistake for BDC to roll out this new platform when in it was clearly not ready.  I am locking them out.

    Dottie, it's clear you have some kinks left to work out. First off though, you might want to look into how a banned poster is still able to spam the board with countless front page titles of threads nobody can (or wants) read. I can appreciate your effort to improve the board but the results so far hav been dismal. I don't envy your position and sincerely hope things get easier for you sooner than later. Cheers!

    Re: Changes to forums and comments

    A message of amends.

     

     

    Now, I am not a stand-up comic. Stand up comics have volumes of time-tested material for every and all occasions. I, unfortunately, do not. However, I’ve done a far amount of public speaking and emceeing over the years so I do have a scattered bit, here and there.

    It is not that we can’t laugh at and with each other. It is not a question of oversensitivity. The problem is that today, as I write this, young men and women whose behaviors, choices or attitudes are not deemed “man enough” or “normal” are being subjected to all kinds of abuse from verbal to physical to societal. They are being demeaned and threatened because they don’t fit the group’s idea of what a “real man” or a “real woman” are supposed to look like, act like and feel like.

     

    For these people, my building a joke upon the premise I did added to the pejorative stereotype that they are forced to deal with everyday. It is at the very heart of this whole ugly world of bullying that has been getting rightful and overdue attention in the media. And with my well-intentioned comedy bit, I played right into those hurtful assumptions and diminishments.

     

    And the worst part is – I should know better. My daily life is filled with hockey fans, both socially and professionally. I am profoundly aware of the challenges these friends of mine face and I have openly advocated on their behalf. Plus, in my own small way, I have lived some of their experience. Growing up in the ‘70’s in a town that revered it’s school sports and athletes, I was quite the outsider listening to my musical theater albums, studying voice and dance and spending all my free time on the stage. Many of the same taunts and jeers and attitudes leveled at hockey players were thrown at me and on occasion I too was met with violence or the threat of violence.

     

    So one might think that all these years later I might be able to intuit that my little "Gregory's daddy" routine could make some person who has already been made to feel alien and outcast feel even worse or add to the conditions that create their alienation. But in this instance, I did not make the connection. I didn’t get it.

     

    So, I would like to say – I now get it. And to the extent that these jokes made anyone feel even more isolated or misunderstood or just plain hurt – please know that was not my intention, at all or ever. I hope we will someday live in a society where we are so accepting of each other that we can all laugh at jokes like these and know that there is no malice or diminishment intended.

     

    But we are not there yet.

     

    So, I can only apologize and I do. In comedy, timing is everything. And when a group of people are still fighting so hard for understanding, acceptance, dignity and essential rights – the time for some kinds of laughs has not yet come. I hope my realization brings some comfort.


    Please forgive me.

    - null

    Quite true.  It is just a game.

    But it is still annoying when a drunk fan heckles you.

    Then it's no longer a game.

    It's personal.

    Hey Badhab, does slow mean not changed one bit ? Because that's what's happened since the last time I was on here.
