    Is anyone else having problems accessing this site using IE 8? I can access it only using other browsers. I called BDC to get a clarification..no response yet.




    IE 9 works fine

    Danny...

    I simply added the Red Sox page  (BDC > Sports > Red Sox) to my "Favorites" and now I come directly to that page when I click on the icon in my "Favorites".  From there it's only a matter of clicking "On the front burner" and I'm there! No logging on, no lengthy procedure to get here.

    Two things now for me...

    I still want the old stars back.  I read here occasionally but I can't always remember what threads I've read or how far I've gone into them.  It sure would be nice to be able to go immediately to "First Unread Post"... like I used to.  :-(

    Also, twice in the past couple of days the first page of "On the front burner" has shown that Dottie has been the most recent poster in this thread, but when I try to read it her post isn't  there.  Am I not getting her posts, or has someone figured out a way to make it look like she's posting when she's not?

    After some research I discovered that I have IE9 installed too, but for whatever reason I cannot access BDC with that browser. Other browsers work fine. Weird.

    Thanks. I fixed it. Put this website on compatability mode. I had my computer repaired recently and they must have screwed up the settings somehow.

    I am probably not paying attention, Dottie, but can you still post internet links to baseball stories, or is that a thing of the past?

    You have to add a title to the link for it to be clickable.

    Can trolls still be banned?  There's a poster called 'bellhorn_' who is trolling in the Red Sox forum and now in the music forum too.  This poster has no purpose except to irritate other posters.  Many of us posters in the music forum would like him banned.  Failing that, can we at least get the ignore function back?

    All the previously banned posters are back, nut, like pike. Did you try using the report abuse button?

    The worst part is the whole "qoute" thing.

     

    It is so horrible to the eye that it makes me not want to read threads.

    The *reporting abuse button does not work. I have been tryig to report FenwayJimmy for forum abuse, hopefully at least his estranged wife's 911 calls get through as I am sure when he isn't here he is stalking her.

    Softlaw bothers you but you found Babe to be funny? They both live to get under your skin. That is what they are proud of and why they come here.


    You're getting almost as annoying as softlaw. Of course as a person with no sense of humor, I wouldn't expect you to understand funny.

    Dear BDC I would like to inform you that Soxchemistry is also FenwayJimmy and pike. Thank you from 100% of the forum for your efforts in ridding us of this plague.

     

    Kind Regards,

    In response to Soxchemistry's comment:

    BDC needs someone who can separate the real Sox fans from the trolls, concern trolls, enablers, pretenders, and spectators from the real Sox fans. Obviously this is an impossible task and will never be accomplished.  The only thing that Red Sox fans can really do is to leave the forum and give it up as a lost cause. Such is the way of the  Internet. It is like a bar in downtown Detroit with no bouncers or policy, it will be full of misfits and fail. So be it. Give it up. The trolls annoy you and you respond and they love it, eat it up and laugh at you. They win and you lose.  Yet Breidy and Moonslav continue wanting to be toyed with.


    So we can look forward to bidding you a not so fond adieu sometime soon?

    Fess up, Dottie.  There's really only one person working on the 'forum changes', and they're doing it on a part-time basis when their classes and homework are done.  It's your son, isn't it Dottie?
