    Thanks for that. I seem to be their hit list also because I come to bill's aid.  That thread about wanting to punch posters is a case in point.

    Sorry S5 but I don't think I did. Since your'e not a woman I don't think you understand.  


     


     


     


    Guys are guys and say um....."interesting" things to eachother, I get that.  If you all want to post on that thread saying you want to punch each other out fine have at it.  If the mods don't have a problem with that thread that's fine also.  But keep women out of it.  I wouldn't have commented if my name wasn't brought into it.  I am old school. It's never ok to say that you want to punch a women, even in jest.  


     


    [/QUOTE]
    ...and a tad too personally.  


     


    Possibly the thread should have been titled, "Remembering that this is only a hypothetical scenario, who do you ever get so frustrated with that you sometimes would consider inflicting pain by means of physical violence on should you ever meet them at The Cask 'n' Flagon.  Remembering that it's hypothetical."  


     


    Besides, we're pretty much a bunch of old men who couldn't hurt anyone anyway!  :-)

    S5 I think we will have to agree to disagree on this one.  The mods removed the original post so I think they saw it as a personal attack.


    Back in the day I earned a high red belt in tae kwon do so guess I could take on a bunch of old men ;0)  Now I'm just an old lady with health issues who spends too much time here because she tires so easliy.

    REPOSTED FROM THE CASK 'N' FLAGON THREAD:


     


    I'm bringing this here because it's more appropriate here than in the original thread:


     


    HFX said:


     


    The guy (Bill) is no innocent victim.  He brings it all on himself, knowingly.    


     


     Pumpsie said:


     


    [/QUOTE]


     


    I do not recall Bill ever writing this kind of thing: "HFX is a lib/left moonbat". He writes stuff in GENERAL terms disdaining the liberal wing. Can you show me an example where he initiated a personal attack on another poster? So what if he dislikes Ortiz and writes posts to express that opinion, no matter how warped his reasoning is. I disagree with almost everything he writes here but frankly, he doesn't bother me. I just move on to the next post. I realize he irritates a lot of people here and maybe he is doing some of that intentionally just to stir the pot sometimes. I just view his opinions about Ortiz and the FO as misguided and illogical, but certainly not offensive.


     


    [/QUOTE]


     


    My Response:


     


    I hope the mods are very careful herein legitimizing what's being said.  


     


    Issue #1 - This is NOT the political forum.  If Bill wants to use lib/moonbat there may be a place for it but it's NOT in the Red Sox forum.  We're all Sox fans here regardless of political affiliation and to repeatedly insult those of a different political belief with name-calling (or any other way) is NOT conducive to a good forum.


     


    Issue #2 - There's a very fine line between saying certain people are libs/moonbats and saying YOU are a ... . If the mods decide to give Bill license to say anything he wants to say as long as he doesn't precede it with "you", they're willing to allow this to become a forum of backhanded name calling, and I can assure you that Bill won't like that any better than he likes what's going on now.


     


    As I said before, Bill is not dumb. Bill is smart.  Bill will push the envelope just as far as the mods will let him push it - and then he'll push it just a little more to see what he can get away with.  That's what he did in the political issue up until yesterday and he's demonstrated that he's more than willing to push it again.

    No, Bill.  You're smart.  You may be able to fool some of the people here with your, "I'm just a poor old Vet" routine, but I'm not one of them.  You're smart enough to be duplicitous almost (?)  to the point of being dishonest, and that's not a trait of a stupid person.


    There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.

    See?  He's not dumb.  He picked right up on those "D" words and even had another one for me! 


    New flash;  Bill is not dumb.  Bill is smart, and he's playing us with his, "Duh...Gee.. I'm just a dumb ol' vet" routine. 


    As a poster here all I ask for is respect and honesty.  I'd submit that we're not getting either of those from 'certain posters'.

    I'm not surprised that Bill knows about demonizing, since that's what he's been doing all along - demonizing the current administration.  That's what got us into this mess here to begin with.

    Hi folks!


    FYI, BogeyAt12oclock has been given a vacation from the forum for repeated attacks on fellow posters despite warnings that he needs to stop. So you will see a few more "this post has been deleted" in the various threads-they reflect, for the most part, his posts which are no longer visible to you. Aside from being a violation of the posting policy at Boston.Com, these kinds of posts have no place in a public forum. Hopefully when he returns he will be able to refrain from insulting fellow posters.

    WOW........ #1/ Why does it matter ???? Only @ contract & production time would this be questioned........... #2/ PROOF ???? Yes, it is hard to prove as we all know that ALL BIRTH CERTIFICATES ARE not created equal !!!


    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


    Here we go again with a thinly veiled political statement.  Day after day after day it doesn't change.  


    How long are the Mods going to put up with this after repeatedly warning Bill about exactly this kind of thing? When does a little "Time Out" be in order?

    After Bogie's (well deserved) banning yesterday, this would be a great time for the Mods to make a statement as to exactly what is and is not allowed here by throwing a well deserved "vacation" Bill's way too.


    He's "thumbing his nose" at the mods and the posters by talking about "kinder and gentler" (which BTW is also political as it was one of GHW Bush's rallying cries") while continuing to do EXACTLY what the mods have told him NOT to do.


    I guess the real question now is how long do the mods allow themselves to be insulted by Bill.

    Just wanted to "introduce" myself here since Mod2 has been the voice so far. I am the other moderator assigned to the Sox forum AKA "Moderator1" . while myself and Mod2 do discuss everything going on with the forum and make decisions as a team, you will probably be hearing mostly from Mod2.


     


    We really want to be fair and have OTFB a great forum for everyone to come to. Ive actually been moderating along with the outsourced company for a while now as a trial. We figured another moderator who has been here for a while was needed as the forum was finishing its upgrades and new look. I think having two unbiased posters who know the others on here will be a better way to run things and I think you will agree as time goes on.


     


    Thank you to everyone for your cooperation in cleaning things up a bit all while keeping OTFB a great place to talk baseball.

    Indeed Bill, as Moderator 1 suggested earlier in regards to your political comments, there will be an "even playing field". That includes a cessation on your part (as you promised earlier, but failed to adhere to) not including your omnipresent political commentary that you feel obliged to inject into your baseball posts. I would consider that flaming. Consider yourself warned.

    I believe there was an impression that you were both long time Sox posters, when it seems more likely that you are long time posters to the boards here in general. Any long time poster on the Sox forum would know how long we have been trying to keep the political posts off this board. You both seem to embrace it, so one would have to conclude that you're posters yourselves from/on the political forum.


    I'll add that at least one poster from the political boards knows Mod2, and has said so. IMO if one person or more knows who you both are, it just seems like the cat is out of the bag and maybe everyone should know who you are instead of some specific group pming each other -- among other political posters.


     No offense, but you just have to wonder if the sudden influx of political posters here -- which I pointed out before your announcement  -- wasn't connected in some way. And the tolerance for political discussions breaking out in baseball threads could only come from posters who love a good political discussion.


    You may just remove this post. Let's face it, it's not like my posts haven't been removed for lesser reasons recently -- or for no reason that I can figure out at least.
