    Ok Jbay, thanks and I am sorry if I misjudged you and you can see why I was a little sensitive about it. I would have loved to have made the connection to JackBu.  Sure I was wrong about Ortiz but made some great posts about JBJ having a gun and Xander's range and throwing issues.

    I can still see my jackbu posts and look back and will say again, I was wrong about Ortiz.

    [/QUOTE]


    No problem, we're good. Glad it was finally cleared up, because I couldn't figure out what was going on.  Whatever was said about Ortiz, you weren't the only one. More than a few, had more than a few things to say.  It was an opinion, at the time. We all have them and we are not always right. How many here thought we'd win it last year? Not me and not anyone I know. enough said.

    [/QUOTE]


    Haha..funny you say that. I was stating into the spring of 2013 not to expect too much because it was a rebuilding year!

    I never lied about Jackbu, it just wasn't any of your business.  I will never understand why you feel the need to have all your questions answered. I will never understand why you scour my twitter account either.  Your obsession with me is more than just scary. 

    I could care less who has past names on this site. 

    [/QUOTE]


    Why are you afraid of the truth?

    I don't scour, as you say.....twitter is a public forum, I read lots of tweets sometimes yours cross over others I follow. There is no obsession,  just curiosity as to why you've said some of the things you've said then can't own up to them.

    I'd say a 2. I've never been for any kind of censorship, unless it is dangerous.

    I do not think anyone should be banned, even though it was more enjoyable when softy and pike and their aliases were gone at the same time.

    I don't mind a little politics here and there, but often it leads to long stretches off topic, but I wouldn't call it "disrespectful" or "discourteous", if that is what you are asking my opinion about.

    I took this thread as one to be open and I don't post comments on other threads which stir the pot.  Mod2 was looking for suggestions and I gave them.  I seldom respond to a certain poster because I know it will only end up as it has here.

     

     

    I apologize for this thread if  anyone is annoyed by it.

    Just curious Steven....if you are Jackbu (and I don't care one iota one way or the other) why not just say that was your previous screen name and you changed it? Apparently multiple usernames are not forbidden here...so who cares? Its a mystery to me why some folks want to use more than one at a time, but if thats what does it for them, go for it! Again, I am not making a judgement about who you are...and you do not need to respond to this either.

    I'd rather everything come out in the open and move on from it with steven11/jackbu.

     

    I think he's embarrassed and that's why he won't admit it. He got chewed apart last year with his Ortiz bashing, so I think he was looking for a fresh start. He did the same thing on the old FOX25 site. When ever he gets trapped he pulls out another screen name.

    Pumpie: This would be a reason why.

    [/QUOTE]

    I cannot control what anyone else posts here. I find you to be a pretty reasonable poster. We don't always agree on things, but we disagree agreeably for the most part. If others are going to try to get under your skin for things that they think you used to do it does not reflect poorly on you; it reflects poorly on them. Hopefully now that your previous identity is cleared up with those who were on your case about it we can lay the issue to rest and they will address you by your current username.

    The probelm usually stems from talking baseball though, buff. If someone says something about a player, or manager, for example, and another disagrees, it goes from there. I think if everyone just remembers it's an opinion, everyone is entitled to theirs, just debate it, it's why were here.  Insulting posters for having one is not the way to go, IMO.

    [/QUOTE]

    That's my point. Just ignore the insults, snarkiness, trash talk and keep on talking about baseball. 



    [/QUOTE]
    How true. Ignore insults such as you are "boring", "have no sense of humor", "you are being too serious", " I was being tongue-in -cheek", "I was being sarcastic or it was satire", and " only trolling you". Put such posters onto ignore if they annoy you, otherwise if you respond in-kind you will be banned. Add them to your ignore list if you are a serious fan. If not then you should have a teflon finish.

    I have been on this board, off and on, for close to ten years.  I change my name, not to confuse people, or to hide who I am, but because I feel like it.

    Personally I love this place when it is wild. Law Vs. Theo Chicks, Softie Vs Moon, Softie Vs me "Snakeoil" Harness Vs. Burrito. Classics all.

    I think people should be banned if they threaten others, or use racist language.

    Other than that. Who cares?  I am being serious here…who cares what other people say on an internet message board?

    have fun and get messed up.

    Mod2,  Seems like you have been at about a 9.  Should be closer to a 3 or 4.

    We're not delicate children, so let's chill out on the censorship. 

    Having said that, if you let billy run roughshod with the politics, I / we will have to listen to the hue & cry of all those who don't seem to possess the ability to ignore.  BOTH ARE OBNOXIOUS!

    So......

    See this, to me, is over the line. Not the name calling per se, but the fact that the entire purpose of the converation in question is to needle someone who you don't like, to agitate and, basically, to troll. That's disruptive and disrespectful to the board, and makes having good conversations about baseball more difficult.

    I am glad you recall harness vs. Burrito .... most if not all loved it.... until after about  a year and it started to go too far.... and posters actually said "guys... its getting a bit too much" and they were right.... harness and I loved it to.... but finally we both went into all out hate mode... no mod banned one of us, no mod deleted our posts.... but the board members who liked both harness and I stood up and said "let's move on" ... and we did not long after....

    I dream if those days in forum terms of life....  

    And yes I miss soft law and his ways... and I miss "theo chicks" ... the board was made by a tremendous mix of determined wills and power, and posters who simply came to talk ball...... now it will be ruined by posters who's main response os "do you want to get banned?"

    [/QUOTE]

    I used to fight with Softlaw all the time, but he was the most entertaining poster on this board.  I would log on just to battle with him. Banning him for doing his thing was ridiculous.

    Pike was boring but same with him. Why bother to ban someone just because they are irritating?

    And yes Harness and Burrito became epic.

    Re: Disrespect: where to draw the line here

    Just to be clear, my concern was never that the mods were being too lenient or too strict, but rather that they were being inconsistent and biased. The bias and unfairness seems to be directed at a small handful of posters, who can't so much as sneeze without getting a warning or having a post deleted, while others can be snarky, flame, antagonize, insult, or whatever without nary a warning.

    I am not in favor of more censorship. I am not in favor of deleting posts or banning posters, except for in extreme cases. I enjoy reading most of the back and forth between posters, and I'm sure the posters involved enjoy it as well.  I find most of the snarky comments rather funny. Many posters try to stir the pot or flame. Often times, that makes for some very good baseball conversation.  

    In short, I am not asking for stricter posting policies, just for consistency.   On a scale of 1-10, I would say 2.

    Thats your response to a reasonable suggestion? No one is interested in your senseless and bitter campaign against any other poster here...trust me. Another poster here also said he was disinterested in it and that it detracted from the substance of this forum. You are behaving like a spoiled two year old who will not listen to reasonable suggestions. Take a lesson from JBay: bury the hatchet and move on.

    I was reading the last few pages of the Moderator thread and am puzzled by what Mod2 and RedsoxKimmi are talking about when she says " Is it okay to instigate, flame, and insult, as long as it is not a poster's PRIMARY purpose".  First of all what does this mean? Please translate.

    I believe that Kimmi thought differently about it than Mod2 did. I have no opinion on this until you explain it and provide an example.

    I'd like to hear from both Mod2 and Kimmi on this since " instigating, flaming, and insulting" are prevalent on many sports forums.

    In other forums, I've seen threads that are designed to flame posters as a group who are are pro or against management, chronic pessimists or those with irrational exuberance, or loyalists or bashers. Threads started to annoy either side should be treated equally and not just favor or ptotect the majority of the forum.

    The primary purpose of a thread is often to flame a group and not an individual poster. The target is wide. A large net is cast to catch many fish. I don't see where that poster should be reprimanded or banned. Most threads in Internet forums are designed to instigate, flame, and annoy.

    I do not believe that posters who were permanently banned should be allowed to post here any more. Pike was uniquely suited for being banned. Nearly all his posts were about other posters and were critical of them. Also, he at times would publish details here about a poster that were personal in nature. Apparently (second hand information) at one time he published the real name and town of one of the posters here; that is simply inappropriate. So yes, if its pretty clear its Pike, I think, as JBay said, he made his bed here and should lie in it.
