    Why is so bad that the "loyal fan base" asks for better play from the TEAM that the FAN-BASE is buying tickets from ????? How lib/left is that ????

    IMO this goes beyond the occasional political discussions that arise within a thread.  This was nothing more than a blatant attempt to drag Bill's political stance into a thread, something he's been politely (and not so politely) asked to  NOT do.  


     


    Bill is seeing The Mods allowing this is as license to go back to his old ways of posting, something that's totally unacceptable to many of us and is a violation of both posting ethics and the posting rules of this forum.  


     


    Here's a news flash:  Bill has proven that he will push that envelope as much as he's allowed to and he'll do it over and over. While I would much prefer to see him clean up his act I'm now fairly certain that it won't happen - which leaves BDC and the Mod's with two options.  Either let Bill run the show or shut him down. Right now you're letting him run the show.. and he knows it.

    You told me that you put him on ignore.  Honestly S5, if he bothers you that much just ignore him.  There are a few posters here who constantly attack me.  If I let them get to me I wouldn't enjoy coming here so I take what they say with a grain of salt.


    I find slashers avatar offensive so I have him on ignore.  I get a chuckle out of the other attacks because they are so lame.  


    Don't let bill get to you.

    I DID have Bill on Ignore, but when people Reply to Bill's post what he originally said appears too.  As I've said before, Bill is like Herpes.  Once he's there you can't get rid of him.  


    My problem isn't with Bill personally, it's with anyone who 'plays the system' regardless of that that system is.  NOBODY is as stupid/oblivious as Bill portends to be and he's playing it right to the n'th degree.  I'm not the only one who feels this way about his posts.  I'm just the one who has taken it to this extent.


    I told him a week ago that if he was willing to clean up his act politically I'd leave him alone.  Apparently he's not willing to so he's stuck with the consequences.  He caused this problem, not me.  I just don't understand why you're championing him the way you are.

    Lot of assistant mods here S5.. Maybe some of them enjoy Bill's views, so they put the onus on you.  That does not fly either.

    He doesn't get under my skin like he does with you that's all.  I started posting here in 06', bill in 08'.  Back then bill posted the only way bill knows how to post.  We didn't take him all that seriously.  Sorry bill!  His eccentric posts were sometimes funny, sometimes witty and sometimes just out there.  No harm, no foul.


    I take winters off because it gets nuts around here.  One spring when I returned I was suprised to see how bill was being attacked from all sides.  Posters just seemed to pile on.  


    I don't like piling on because it reminds me of a school yard mentality.  When people attack the natural thing to do is defend yourself or counter attack.  I know how bill feels because the same thing was done to me because of my religious beliefs.  I chose to remain calm and try to explain why I believe the way I do.  I think bill retaliates by getting under peoples skin.  The more people react the more he does it.


    As I have said over and over again just ignore him.  There are posters here I don't like.  Heck I've been called some pretty brutal names but I don't let it bother me.  You are the master of your own emotions.  The sooner you let what bill says slide off your back the better you will feel.


    The mods did say that since this is our forum we may talk about politics if we keep it civil and short and to the point.


    If people didn't respond to his political jabs then the political part of the thread would die very quickly.


    The reason I defend bill is because l like him, I get his sense of humor and I understand how it feels to be attacked.

    [/QUOTE]67,  Thank You for your kind remarks and continued support....... If I am over the line I am sure the MOD's will point that out to me.  What continues to be interesting is that there are 4 or 5 "mud-slingers" on this board that see the "board" as theirs.....  I am sure that the MOD's have already figured that out and probably dislike the "petty attacks" on people that do not see things their way......

    Last comment not addressed to you 67.  Bill, I did you a small kindness acouple of weeks ago when you were having trouble  posting  Am not mudslinging, just noting your return to offhand political throwaway lines which you had not done for awhile   All this has led to another lengthy discussion which should have been addressed by the non existent mod.

    I DID have Bill on Ignore, but when people Reply to Bill's post what he originally said appears too.  As I've said before, Bill is like Herpes.  Once he's there you can't get rid of him.  


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    My problem isn't with Bill personally, it's with anyone who 'plays the system' regardless of that that system is.  NOBODY is as stupid/oblivious as Bill portends to be and he's playing it right to the n'th degree.  I'm not the only one who feels this way about his posts.  I'm just the one who has taken it to this extent.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    I told him a week ago that if he was willing to clean up his act politically I'd leave him alone.  Apparently he's not willing to so he's stuck with the consequences.  He caused this problem, not me.  I just don't understand why you're championing him the way you are.

    He doesn't get under my skin like he does with you that's all.  I started posting here in 06', bill in 08'.  Back then bill posted the only way bill knows how to post.  We didn't take him all that seriously.  Sorry bill!  His eccentric posts were sometimes funny, sometimes witty and sometimes just out there.  No harm, no foul.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    I take winters off because it gets nuts around here.  One spring when I returned I was suprised to see how bill was being attacked from all sides.  Posters just seemed to pile on.  


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    I don't like piling on because it reminds me of a school yard mentality.  When people attack the natural thing to do is defend yourself or counter attack.  I know how bill feels because the same thing was done to me because of my religious beliefs.  I chose to remain calm and try to explain why I believe the way I do.  I think bill retaliates by getting under peoples skin.  The more people react the more he does it.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    As I have said over and over again just ignore him.  There are posters here I don't like.  Heck I've been called some pretty brutal names but I don't let it bother me.  You are the master of your own emotions.  The sooner you let what bill says slide off your back the better you will feel.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    The mods did say that since this is our forum we may talk about politics if we keep it civil and short and to the point.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    If people didn't respond to his political jabs then the political part of the thread would die very quickly.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    The reason I defend bill is because l like him, I get his sense of humor and I understand how it feels to be attacked.


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     















     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


     


    [/QUOTE]67,  Thank You for your kind remarks and continued support....... If I am over the line I am sure the MOD's will point that out to me.  What continues to be interesting is that there are 4 or 5 "mud-slingers" on this board that see the "board" as theirs.....  I am sure that the MOD's have already figured that out and probably dislike the "petty attacks" on people that do not see things their way......



     


    [/QUOTE]


    My pleasure bill~

    Yup.  Lots of mudslingers.   I've been called a bigot, racist, hitler to name a few because of my religious beliefs.  These mudslingers don't have a problem with hurling insults.  But if you say something they don't like, watch out!

    This is YOUR forum. If you would like to discuss non-baseball topics in a congenial manner from time to time we believe that is fine. Some non-baseball topics have gathered a lot of interest and have resulted in some very good discussions. Individuals who do not wish to engage in such discussions can certainly find a host of other threads in which to participate.


    That said Bill: Please understand that your frequent political posts are having an adverse affect on some of the other posters' ability to enjoy the forum here. Consider what you are about to post before hitting the "add your post" tab. If you could reduce the amount of political posting on your part I think it would reduce the criticism you sometimes receive here. Its not breaking the posting rules, true, but its offending some of your fellow posters. Common courtesy would dictate that you hear what they are saying.

    I don't see the mods enabling anyone. They certainly are not enabling Bill. I agree with other posters, if you find Bill's posts annoying just ignore them. The ignore feature on this forum is a tool..one that I use for 2 posters in the politics forum..and one that people should use. We are all adults in this forum.


    You find Bill's posts annoying. Sometimes I do too..but not to same extent. You want to know what is worse and more disruptive than Bill's posts? The 20 posts following that attack Bill for his comment. In other words..the piling on. To me..that is much more disruptive to a thread than 1 or 2 annoying posts by Bill.


    I think most of us take and accept Bill for what and who he is. There is no need to keep beating a dead horse..and there certainly isn't a need to keep calling for Bill to be banned. That kind of talk usually gets people blackballed in the Politics forum .

    I understand that.  Does that give Bill the right to do what HE does?  This is what I refer to as "The 7th grade girl" response:  When caught in the act of doing something inappropriate their response is, "Oh...well... YEAH!  But look what HE did!!"


    Bill and his supporters have done nothing but deflect - but I have to admit that he's done a good job of it!  The entire discussion now is becoming not what Bill does to offend posters but rather how right Bill is to do it because HE was offended by their response to his insults.  


    This came from MOD 2, and Bill continues to ignore it.:

    See, Bill is not dumb.  He now knows that he's not breaking the posting rules so he's going to continue to do it.  Bill wins.  I do find it interesting that Bill, who espouses conservative values, likes to hide behind what he has a "right" to (his freedom of speech) rather than act like a decent human being and try to solve his own problems by doing what Mod 2 has suggested.  Kinda like a welfare mom who collects her welfare because she's "entitled" to it rather than solving her own problems by finding a job. 


    The bottom line here is this;  Bill has won. The Mods have enabled him, and those who find him offensive have a choice.  We can continue to watch Bill insult those with different political beliefs than his, or we can leave.   


    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    I've said this before so I'll say it a little louder.  THE IGNORE FUNCTION DOES NOT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.  Once people respond to the original post by using "Reply to this Post" the ignored post appears.


    As I've said, I'd much rather see Bill clean up his act than be banned.  But at this point he HAS been enabled by Mod 2 telling him that what he's doing isn't against the posting rules. 


    And again, the discussion now centers around not the original offense but the response to it!  


    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    Bill doesn't "win" if you ignore him, which is really the best solution to any poster here who you find annoying or insulting.
