    Crushing news about the mods as I know Southpaw doesn't like me and is a friend of Zac's. Pumpsie seems to like the posters that I don't and is a friend of Zac. Maybe he doesn't like me either. And the only thing I remember about BosoxJoe is his constant negative threads here, so we're really not on the same page as far as posting is concerned.

    I think you might be thinking of someone else with a similar name...not BoSoxJoe.

     

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

    Hey all...BosoxJoe has been blocking posts that attack a targeted poster. We are not going to do that any more on this forum. So far Bogey, Kingface, and TheFourB's each have one warning. Two more and you will get a vacation. If you disagree with Bill's content then disagree with it; or ignore it. However, personal attacks on Bill or anyone else who is targeted here are not going to be tolerated.

    This attacking of targeted posters has been going on since you became a mod and until now, they have received no warnings (while others have been banned). It's interesting that there is suddenly a change in protocol.  Why the sudden change of heart?

    @KST - Thank you.

    @FourBs - Of course I'm not crazy.  I am probably the most sane poster on this board.  ;-)

    If you cannot pull up On The Front Burner how can you post on this thread? I am not having the same problem. Let me know if it is persisting for you (or anyone else) and I will report it via email to the management.

    I deleted Bill's thread entitled "Whats going on with this board" (or something like that) because concerns technical issues here belong on the Issues for BDC thread (or on the mod thread). Please: no comments about the author of that thread here. If anyone is still having a technical problem with the forum let me know and I will try to get to the bottom of it.

    Kim your post is unfair. Nowhere in the TOS does it say you have to be a a Red Sox fan to post here. If you are going to create a litmus test and go after other poster, it will end up in post being deleted and you being banned. You will join Pike. Zac is mostly harmless and has not been banned 35 times. The changing of the number I will leave to him to explain but it is not directly tied to him being banned. This isn't a warning this is me trying to get on the same page as you. If you attack a non-mod openly that will be a warning.

    Also, I am negative really? Have you read my post?

    opinion. Rules either must be adhered to strictly or admit the rules are open to interoperation; so far they are enforced based on interoperation,   

    [/QUOTE]

    Bottom line Rigatoni: posters should not be targeted for consistent daily insults here. As the posting policy states, "Use respectful language. Our community will flourish only when our Members feel welcome and safe". Despite the kind of baseball content some posters here write about I doubt they feel "welcome" in the face of a personal  insult or insults after every post. Yes, its a matter of interpretation, and for better or worse, the interpretation is up to the moderators here.

    As I wrote earlier, this is not about the occasional personal insult. We are not going to overmoderate. However, I think if you look at what has been directed at certain posters, Bill and 67 in particular, its overboard.

    First warning Bill. You are not allowed to provoke other posters here with your political nonsense. I strongly suggest that you reread every post before you hit the "add your post " button. If other posters are not going to be allowed to provoke you with personal insults then you are not going to be allowed to provoke them with political inserts like this.

    As best I can tell, the source of the complaints is that OTFB is not showing up under "Red Sox Discussions" if you're trying to reach it through the main page...as seen here:

    http://www.boston.com/community/forums/sports/red-sox/100/910

    I access OTFB directly through my favorites, so I haven't run into an issue. Using the link MadMc posted will take you to the full forum and should allow you to view all threads.

    Hope that helps those who are having problems.

    micro-managing is the death of any forum..... this place is candy-land compared to HuffP or uTube.

    Yeah, it is. And I see that as a good thing.  As I may have said, I also post on another more local board where they say up front that "no bashing or general negativity is allowed", and it operates quite smoothly and respectfully.  People make their points without baiting or insulting one another.  

    The problem (IMO) with that is that it also eliminates the good-natured jibes between two posters who know the intent of that jibe.  

    Again IMO (what else are you going to get here?) what's happening now is a necessary overreaction to what's happened in the past.  Certain posters have set themselves up as targets with their posts and other posters are taking shots at them.  I expect that once those posters have learned that intentionally posting things that make them targets isn't going to be allowed and those who are taking the shots learn to be a bit more forgiving things will calm down and the mods will use their discretion to allow the back-and-forths that Burrito and Harness used to have.

    But what do I know?
