    In response to RedSoxKimmi's comment:

    I am going to use Zac as an example, because he is a dear friend and he knows I am not trying to call him out.  Zac flames all the time.  He admits it.  In fact, he takes great pleasure in inciting Sox fans, and has admitted to that as well.  He has a history of doing this.  He has been banned by BDC too many times to count.  He has not so much as been warned one time.   I like Zac, so your favorable bias towards him does not go against my personal bias.

    So my question is, what's the difference between Zac and Babe?   The only difference I see is that you like Zac and you don't like Babe.  There are other similar examples.



    Personally I do see a pretty big difference between Zac and Babe.  Zac, who I am on friendly terms with like yourself, certainly likes to take some pokes at the Red Sox and their fans.  But I don't think he crosses the line into trolling like Babe has.  Babe would go on the game threads and say things just to irritate, like 'Go Cards!' if that's who we were playing.  He would also get into fights with a lot of Sox fans here and call them names, like 'moonpie'.  That's trolling. 

     




    Zac isn't exactly above that sort of thing.

    Just tell him Jeter plays SS like Ted Williams statue...

    Kimmi, with all due respect, this is a naive opinion. Moderation is not black and white job. Someone has to decide which posts are over the top and need to be blocked; someone needs to decide which posters are more offensive than others and need correction. No law here (or in society either-that is why we have judges to differentiate) covers all possibilities unless you are a digital being. Much of it is subjective. There is no way to eliminate bias completely. I believe that what you mean is that bias is not OK if it does not align with your own personal bias. Hence, your "hypocrite" and "biased" accusations. Despite your dissatisfaction I will keep doing the best I can here, as will Mod 1 I am sure. You will never be satisfied with it, and I accept that.


     


    As I said when I first brought up my concern about bias, I have no dog in this fight.  I am not trying to get anyone banned

    Kimmie, I've never been more impressed with a poster. You hit the nail on the head. Someone who constantly flies under the radar because of his friends here is a PERFECT example of what you're trying to say. I understand you're friends, but it totally portrays the bias that goes on depending on who the mods are here. They even talk about how many times a poster has been banned as a way of judging their behavior and how much tolerance they have. Here's a friend of theirs banned 30+ times, and a rival team's fan to boot, who likes to go after posters who say anything positive about the Sox or anything negative about the Yankees. And he's never even in the conversation.


     


    I think, if the mods aren't going to reveal themselves, then at least we should know how many of them are on the side board created and specifically, which of the mods are there. At least we would know if the decisions about posters are all coming from the same place. (Although I think we probably already know.)


    A secret "we don't talk about fight club" alliance would be the worst thing to happen to this board. No offense S5, but you weren't willing to talk about the proverbial "fight club" and that pretty much says it all.

    Apparently, according to Adrienne, it is the contract mods who have been blocking some pretty innocent posts. She said she will handle it, but would like examples of posts that have been inappropriately blocked. Please send me (here) the link to the page where any posts of yours  have been blocked inappropriately and I will forward it to her. Thanks.

    Why not petition the management to have mods on your forum too. You will need some volunteers. But the management has indicated a willingness to have on site mods. We are not allowed to moderate other forums. Good luck!

    Could it be that the PATRIOTS board are for BIG BOYS & GIRLS, and this board has to cater to 5 or 6 CRY BABIES  ????    Just wondering !!





    Bill...enough...please. You make it really hard to defend you ( as I have on many occasions) when you stir the pot. My guess is the war of words is going to continue as long as you keep firing rockets at the opposition.

    Can we please just agree on cease-fire for a few days...for humanitarian reasons ( you know the sanity of the rest of us)?

    I posted to Bill yesterday "Bill you are on the list, you are on the list" after he made a oft-witty remark to me and both our posts were removed. Neither of us said anything that could be construed as offensive...




    Ya know, it's like a person who has never had a responsible job in their life all of a sudden given some 'power'.  I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about.  I have to be careful here.  I wouldn't want the person with all that 'power' to punish me.

    By the way, have you checked out your 'girl' again.  Don't hesitate.  The worse that can happen is a 'no'.  I know because I've been said 'no' to so many times that I'm immune.

    Re: Post your moderator related comments here

    Good morning,

    Couple of updates are in order. First, I believe I have unblocked the posts that the contract mods blocked on the "Additional moderator wanted" thread, now that Adrienne and her team has seen them and been able to find out who blocked them. She expressed her personal opinion that she is all for "less moderation/censoring in general", and that is in line with the consensus here (fortunately). She also said that the contract mods cannot be completely eliminated because the forum is subject to spam. However, she will ask them to stop blocking posts with the exception of spam and racist/bigoted posts and leave the moderating to what will soon be three site moderators.

    Which brings me to the next item: Mod 1 and I will have a phone meeting this evening to discuss our choice for the third moderator whose name will be submitted to the management of Boston.Com for their approval. If you have expressed an interest in this rewarding and high paying career, please be sure your profile is set to "public" so we can communicate privately. Otherwise we cannot send you a pm with information about your interest in the job. I suspect that by Wed we should have a third site moderator here.

    I'm not sure I understand this. Can't you and the other citizen-mods deal with any spam that may appear? If so, why are the contract mods needed at all?

    Anyway, it sounds like progress is being made. Thanks again for your efforts.

     

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    When she wrote that I didn't take it further. It seemed to me that she was reluctant to call them off entirely. There is a meeting tomorrow for the Globe staff and some of these issues will be discussed. I asked that we be able to contact the contract mods directly because they are probably not aware of the consensus here that a more liberal approach to moderation be employed. She apparently will need to get the OK from her boss to make that happen.

    I have already dealt with some threads started by spammers. You probably never saw them. Generally they are advertisements and I get rid of them as soon as I see them. Perhaps there are many more that I do not see that the contract mods are handling.

    Not sure if this answers your question.
