In response to southpaw777's comment:
Maybe one of you IT geeks can get a clue and figure this out. Seriously, I have friends that can do this. since April this site has had more issues and now this one. Maybe some more schooling would help? Im outta here. I really like this site and some people here, but its unenjoyable when I cant even post because something like this below keeps coming up.

I don't mean to be offensive Southpaw..but really..if you were BDC..why would you even bother? I don't mean this against you personally..but this Sox forum has become insufferable. I rarely check back anymore because it seems like every thread in the forum devolves into some sort of personal attack against whatever poster people don't like. No one is hitting the "report" button yet people are getting reported left and right and the board is full of "this comment has been removed" posts. If you are not someone who is here everyday..then these threads become..well..insufferable and tedious because you are missing more than half of every conversation.
In my opinion..there are a group of posters who feel that they have to be the 'forum police" and that has led to a general decline in the quality of the sox forum. This happened briefly in the politics forum with one poster who thought she was the forum police. Thankfully..she moved on and it's much better.
Yes..I know I can choose to ignore people and posts..but geesh..it's hard to find a post where the comments are kept right on baseball and there are no accusations of this person being softy or that person being jack or whatever phantom anonymous poster wars the forum police feel like fighting that day. Who really cares if someone has many accounts? Does it really matter that much in the grand scheme of things?
If I were BDC I would scrap this forum altogether and not spend one more second on it. I don't love the format of a couple of the other Sox chat forums..but format isn't everything and the content and coversations are more adult for sure.
I've been on forums where the sponsors check out. All the signs are there that this forum is going to be on life support pretty soon. No web developer in their right mind wants to spend time improving a site where adults act like whiny babies. I am sure BDC has much bigger fish to fry.
