    They both got banned? I was wondering what was going on. The problem is Rusty will be back and it won't take him long to pollute these boards again...I'm going to enjoy this while it lasts.

    I'm not so sure about that mthurl. According too a poster on the Sox board the software outage of a few weeks ago was BDC turning on their new software that includes IP banning.

    It is a little weird.  I almost got used to all the bickering and name calling.

    I didn't like it but it was becoming the norm.

    Now some of us feel like we can respond to a post without fear of being called a troll, moron, idiot, pink hat fan, etc. etc.

    Kinda nice.

    I come to this board because I'm a Pats fan.  Always have been.

    Just want to be around other Pats fans especially since I live in Cowgirl Country now.

    Not here to try to impress anyone with my knowledge of the game and my awesome ability to scout talent.  I'm sure I will only disappoint everyone in both of those areas.  LOL!

    The board seems too have a much better flow without the 2 spammers hijacking every thread with their childish and annoying drivel. Let hope the rumored IP ban is in effect and continues too scrub out the trash from the board.

    I doubt it is an IP ban, since most ISPs change your outward facing IP regularly, and since people sign in from multiple locations.  I know I have been having trouble signing in on either of my accounts for a while now, it keeps rejecting my passwords and I have to reset them.

    I believe they have indeed enforced some version of a technical ban.  It's more than a coincidence that certain individuals disappeared at the same time and have not returned.
    Being an IT person I have a pretty good idea how they are doing it.  I encourage others who may understand the technology to not divulge the methods so that weaknesses are not disclosed and peace and harmony are maintained.

    Before those who shall not be mention took over the forum it use to be a place for all Pats fans regardless of aptitude for scouting or the game itself. It was a friendly place where those with knowledge happily shared it with those who didn't and those who didn't weren't afraid to ask those who did any question they wanted. What once was will be again and we'll all celebrate and dance around the fire

    Do they tell you when they ban you, or does it just stop working?

    I've been way more motivated to come here and post stuff as well as chime in on other threads. It's a better blog without a doubt.

    Same here man, I didn't want to post or make a thread discussing football because it usually get's hijacked and what once was a discussion about football turns into 2-5 guys going at each other.

    According to Russ, and he should know, they didn't tell him when he was banned. He could see his posts but we couldn't.

     Over 6500 posts without getting banned?   

     Excellent my friend.

     I know a certain someone who probably would have at least that many if he wasn't banned about 10 times or so.

    I often wonder what my ID was pre-2008 and how many posts I had....Still not sure why they had that board overhaul....But you still see some people with 2005 "1st" posts....

    I have to admit I am addicted to Twitter!  Great access to Boston Sports info for a New England transplant in Colorado!  Constantly hitting referesh....

    What would I do without it?  lol

    Is it possible that those who shall not be mentioned were all the same person? I know this sounds totally insane as they had multiple endless "dumb" arguments, but, the rusty account was banned several times and always came back.....until the babe account was finally banned for the exact same reasons??? Interesting....although not really.

    I've also wondered that too. I can't even remember what my pre-08' name was honestly but I've been posting since at least 05'. I have to be well over 10k posts by now. Has anyone ever figured out why some posters accounts were erased in the 08' switch over and some weren't?

    I've also wondered if they were the same person too just laughing at us. Makes you kind of wonder how many people were the same person. Esp now that some posters have appearently disappeared along with the others

    This will be nice if it keeps up. I got a laugh the other day when I opened a thread that was 6 pages long at the time but I only saw about 10 replies from people I hadn't banned.
