    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.

    Posted by Bill on the morning of 5/4 in the "Wicked is as wicked does" thread:


    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.

    It's not their first tour of duty, and my references to deleted posts was not recently. They have said they were here moderating long before their announcement. I even questioned a post being deleted formally because there was no reason for it.


    Hey, I realize you don't want to be grouped in with my political post comments, but trust me, no one is linking the two. I think you should have been listened to when you were concerned about the political discussion on the game thread, but I don't post on the game threads and I think the mods should know that. I'm sure you're OK with the mods, no need to panic.


    FTR tiptoeing around the mods and not telling them how you really feel accomplishes NOTHING. Maybe you think it gets you a gold star or something, but who really wants to deal with only those who are afraid of saying how they feel?
