    1) Who cares who the Mods are?

    2) It's a lot better now then when there essentially were no Mods.

    3) Bias exhists....it's human nature.  Deal with it as they are doing the best they can...WHICH IS WHY THERE IS TWO!!

    4) I really like chicken wings...it's almost an addiction.

    5) Can we stop talking about this useless conversation now??  (Unless it's a conversation about chicken wings.....in which case, what is your favorite sauce to go over them and are you a Blue Cheese or Ranch fan with them??.....I'm a spicy Garlic and Ranch guy myself.....or Thai Chile.  If not available than old fashioned buffalo with Blue Cheese is always good).

    Chicken wings you say??? You haven't lived until you've tried the Saugus Wings from Kowloon. Sweet, garlicky gooey deliciousness.

    I never dip wings.

    FYI, FriendsofFrazee has been banned for repeatedly flaming here despite being given fair warning and despite complaints from other posters. When he returns he is welcome only if he can refrain from this kind of behavior.

    [/QUOTE]


    excellent.  babe only reason to come here is to incite red sox fans. 

    while i certainly have had and will continue to have "debate" with some yankees fans that post here (zac/twm) and their slant is obviously pro yankees (as it should be).  they seem to stay within the rules of good natured back and forth.  babe (and mfymfy) to me are different animals in that they will post in a thread simply to put down the sox or the poster rooting for the sox.

    question - this has to be like the 4th or 5th moniker that "babe" has been banned under.  at what point does a person become banned permanently?

    excellent post.  i agree with 1 & 2 completely.  IMO it is a thankless task for the mods.  i have had a few posts deleted by the mods and while i didnt necessarily agree that they should be deleted, i understood why they did it and left it at that.
      who are they?  i dont know and really havent thought much about it.  if they want to remain anonymous so be it.  who am i to say whether someone should come out of the closet?  honestly i am just glad i am not a mod as im pretty sure we would be down to like a handful of posters not banned.  lol.

    as for wings - i like every single kind.  love them all.  but favorite?  hotter the better for me.  melt my face nuclear sauce would be my pick.  definitely blue cheese to dunk 'em in.  i like both the breaded wings and the non-breaded but they have to be cooked WELL DONE (as in almost burnt).

    miscricket's has me pondering if the mods should remain anonymous

     

    if so many know who they R

    [/QUOTE]

    I'm not sure "so many know who they R".  Kimmy's saying that neither mod has disclosed their identity to her means to me that she thinks she knows who they MIGHT be..which is a whole lot different from actually knowing who they are.

    Myself I'd prefer that they remain anonymous.  If/When their identities are "exposed" (it sounds like a CIA operation!) everything they say and do will be considered within the knowledge of who they really are and I don't think that's fair to them.  

    I say leave 'em alone.  They're doing the right thing and a good job of it.

    My opinion FWIW. 

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

     

    [/QUOTE]

    I agree with you 100%

    [/QUOTE]


    I would prefer to remain anonymous as well...and have advocated for them to do so up until this point. But Kimmi's insistence that she knows who they are and therefore why the bias exists has me concerned.

    Added to that..there seems to be a changing story here as well. First, we are told that the Mods were recruited by BDC as part of a pilot program to have member-mods. ( personally..I think there was a member mod long before this). Now, we are being told that there is a third poster who "nominated" them to BDC.  Was the board every aware that there was a nominating process? I wasn't.  Finally...we are now expected to believe that BDC also gave the mods the power to approach and recruit a third poster to be a moderator.

    This sounds like it's very outside the norm. In most forums such as this , the recruiting would be done by the company.

    I don't know...the whole thing sounds like it doesn't quite add up. For now..though...I agree that overall the forum is better moderated. I am not going to beat a dead horse..I just have questions is all.

    [/QUOTE]

    You bring up some interesting points and yes the whole nomination process is intriguing. I'm not sure we will ever have all the answers.  Since I hold the polar opposite views of most posters here I expect the mods to be biased against me no matter who they are.

    On the whole I think are doing a pretty decent job.  I do wish they would crack down on those who attack just to be ugly because I think they take away from the enjoyment of the other posters.  

    Thank-you for your support!

    Good call on the 'extra done' wings.  I too ask for them to keep it in the oil for a few minutes extra.  We have this wing joint near us that we frequent.  They have this sauce called 'Chernobyl' (awesome name).  It was so hot my buddy had to go outside, on a cold Maine winter night, take his shirt off and roll around on the cold pavement.  People walked by calling him a 'sloppy drunk' as he yelled in pain.  Poor guy is a recovering alcoholic and hasn't touched a drink in months......

    Good morning....just wanted to give you all a brief update from Adrienne, who, it appears, is now in charge of managing the forum at Boston.Com. The news is: there is nothing new. The problems with the forum I mentioned earlier (the persistence of the formatting issue when the editing button is used and the ability of the mods to see all private messages) is "in the works"; and the instructions to the contract mods has not changed, so posts that were removed here were removed by one of us two. Here is the text of her email response, and yes, it is frustrating that this formatting issue is taking so long to resolve:

    Thanks for your concern. Everything you've requested is in the works, and I will let you know if there are any updates.


    The contract mods instructions have not changed, as far as I know.

    No too difficult to figure out who Mod2 is.


    As far as wings are concerned, I used to go to this place in Pennsylvania where they would fry the wings, put them in the buffalo sauce, fry them again and then re-sauce them. They came out awesome but I'm sure it ruined the oil in the fryer. Gotta be well done with blue cheese.



    Just as it's not too difficult to figure out who you are, Pike. 


     First of all, the moderating company is still in play, so back off of the on site mods. They've made this a beeter place.Secondly, if any of you complaining about the thankless job they agreed to do, maybe you would like to take over, but I warn you, it doesn't pay very well.

    FTR, I'm not complaining.  Mod2 has posted here several times that the mods welcome any suggestions/critiques on how to better do their jobs.

    To me, the bias is quite obvious.   Posters have been banned and posts have been deleted, while others that are just as bad have not been.  I'm just offering my observations.
