In response to kimsaysthis's comment:
Your "Dem Yanks" crowd IMO has seemingly controlled this free-for-all for years. There were people from that crowd -- Yankee fans -- that said they knew some of the moderators here, and at least one said they were an ex-moderator here. That was also probably why the Dem Yanks lasted so long. No matter how much you loved that thread, it has no place in the middle of a Boston site called RSOTFB. And instead of moving it to a Yankee site, Zac decided to occupy another Sox site with the thread.
I just don't understand why you guys don't see that Zac and his pals are all about controlling Sox sites. I bet it was incredibly difficult for Sox posters who weren't in your merry little band and were just on a Sox site to talk about the Sox. You have to realize that a thread like that on a Sox board would be an oasis that would just attact more Yankee fans and Yankee trolls. There are some strong personalities in that crowd, and that thread was probably where the whole "keeping Sox fans real" was invented. They decided you weren't allowed to post on the board unless you were viewing your team realistically. No Sox fans just being Sox fans were welcomed. That's also why there are none here now. There's no way a thread called Dem Sox exists on any Yankee board. They have realistic posters, and they have fans of the Yankees, a mix that I'm sure makes up all fan boards. Not this one. You have to be real here. The Sox fanatics were probably run off this board, like I was.
Kim, you are so misinformed.
The Dem Yanks thread was never in the RSOTFB section, which, by the way, is not the name of this site. Dem Yanks was in the section for other teams. There is still a section here for other teams.
Zac doesn't control anything or anybody here except himself. He's a poster like you and me. He comes here and posts. That's it. It's too bad that you feel like he 'ran you off the board', but frankly, that just means you were being a wimp.
You sound like you have a serious neurosis, perhaps even full-fledged paranoia. You have to seek help for this.
Actually, you are so misinformed. And that's surprising since you followed Zac to claim his new space on yet another Sox board with his entourage. Like a said, an entourage made up of at least one ex-moderator here, and claims to know some of the moderators here now. They even made the claim on this board when they returned briefly. I didn't hear about it, I read it myself. It's really unbelievable that you don't know this since you also post on the other board they maintain. And by, unbelievable, I really mean unbelievable. Don't know why you're pretending not to know that.
It was actually the first time that I realized that there could be Yankee fan moderators here. That can't be good for Sox fans. And Zac did have his account reinstated to it's original start date and post count after being banned twice. That's NEVER happened to any Sox fan here.
The other forum they created on another Sox site also belonged to them. I don't believe they mentioned that to Sox fans who went there. That would mean, of course, that when you posted there, they would have all your personal information that you provided. They knew this because they also claimed to be techs. I was able to get them to admit that at least while they were here.
I'm not paranoid, I'm just smarter than you.
