    Seriously Pumpsie, you don't see anything wrong with what I posted above?

     

    You don't see any inconsistency?

     

    You think it's okay for you, as a moderator, to condone a type of post that you just said would no longer be tolerated?

     

     

     

     

    This is one of the reasons why I didn't want the mods to be identified.  IMO while the comment about 'milkshakes to cure the terminally stupid' was slightly over the line it was humorous enough to be overlooked.  Especially since it was probably appropriate.  

     

    HOWEVER.... it's something most of us could say and get away with, but when a moderator says it, it's verboten. 

     

    It's inevitable that when moderators are identified they're going to be held to a higher standard,  most especially by posters who have been previously critical of the moderators.  While I see that as being unfair to the moderators that ship has unfortunately sailed now.

    S5, I am always available to and will respond to reasonable posters who ask reasonable questions. It was not my original comment; it was written by HFX, who rarely participates in personal attacks. Therefore, I let it go. Let me refer you back to what the three mods decided and to the post I wrote a few pages ago: 

     

    "OK gang...I have had a chance to confer with the other two moderators and we agree that the public targeting of certain posters cannot continue the way it is now. If we are not going to tolerate Bill's intentionally provocative political inserts, in the interest of fairness, we should also not tolerate provocative insults directed to him or to any other poster in the repeated manner that Bill (and others) has been insulted. We realize that occasional insults are going to happen, and we will not "overmoderate", but they should remain occasional."

     

    Because HFX is not a repeat offender, in the interests of not overmoderating, I let it go. As the underlined area suggests, some insults are going to happen here; none of the three of us want to overmoderate, so we will use our judgement where to draw the line. Not everyone will agree with where that line is drawn, and I understand that. The goal is to get rid of the incessant daily nonsense that was being perpetrated against a few posters, mostly Bill and 67. If anyone here thinks that that sort of stuff contributes in a positive way to this forum, by all means, step forward and make yourself known. What Kimmi does not like is that there will still be some judgement involved-and that it is not HER judgement.

     

    Hopefully this will clear it up and in the end, the forum will be better for most people. As Ampoule said, just be decent to each other.

     

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

     

     




     I really appreciate the efforts on my behalf but if it's going to cause a big stink I'm fine with the way things are.

    I think the posters who follow me around just to make snarky remarks are making it a bit unpleasant for others but I ignore them.  They really don't bother me so if cracking down on them is causing a problem please don't feel you have to do it for me.

    Thanks again for the effort!

    Any article Drudge points becomes the Battle of Fallujah.




    So......  This guy is a mod too?  Do I have this correct???

    If so, why is he posting blatantly "flaming" political non sequiturs from deep out of Left Field?

     

    Shortly after this bizarro world post by a mod?  Pump gives Bill a stern warning about "political inserts," where one would be hard pressed to infer a political intent??  This is really getting into Pikish / Don Quixote, flailing about at political windmills on every post by Bill.  If I'm seeing this as a not so long ago harsh Billy basher, I think it's fair to say that you new mods are quickly spinning out of control.  You are running the risk of becoming omnipresent & overbearing.  GOD!!!!   I hate running the risk of sounding remotely like our Kimmies, but you're running the risk of proving them somewhat correct.  By constantly responding to their whining you likewise do the same.  I can see why mod2 is takinga vacation! He was OMNIPRESENT, especially with respect to addressing & food fighting any & all criticism.  Taking the job WAY TOO SERIOUSLY!

    WE ALL NEED TO CHILL OUT, CALM DOWN, STOP TAKING THIS BOARD SO SERIOUSLY, AND START HAVING SOME FUN!  NEVER IN MY REAL LIFE HAVE I EVER SEEN REAL LIVE RS FANS GET THEIR K ICKERS IN SUCH A TWIST!

    Long ago, this board became a soap opera......   We absolutely do not need Susan Luchi types moderating the board!!!!!!!

    You guys are good guys & great Red Sox fans.  Let's all take a big step back, & stop the nonsense.   I / we expect a good amount of nonsense from billy, boggie, the kimmies, Slash, & many others including me, we surely don't need the mods adding to it.  Ironically, a certain amount of nonsense spices up the board, & keeps it hopping.  It makes sane posters laugh & keep interested in an otherwise tear inducing season....   So let's please chill with what is quickly becoming more of the same over-moderating.

    Calm.   Cool.   Collected......  as I always tell my 4th graders.  :)    

    Now let's relax & have some fun!!!!!      :)     :)      :)

    Dirtdog 



    The only thing that has changed is that the repetitive targeted insults perpetrated upon a few posters here-which contribute ZERO to this forum-are not going to be allowed to continue. Nothing else has changed. If you are a fan of that stuff, you will be disappointed. Otherwise, nothing has changed. 

     

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

     




    Ahhhh?  Ok......

    Not sure you took my point.  Pump,  while as I've said, I have always respected you, & continue to do so, you are coming awefully close to "reading & framing too many of your own press clippings," as it were....

    Your now constant responding to criticism is what seems to have burnt out mod2.  The overt disrespect of some is suggesting a certain new found arrogance, which seems a bit out of character, and is most certainly provocative / borderline flaming?

    The shot you took & were called on about Bill, and your subsequent in your face, "I could care less what you think"  to Kimmi & others ( or words to that effect) are beginning to make you sound as though you are above the rules you are seeking to change?  

    I already have been a long time critic of Kimmi & some of the other interminable whiners, so I Hope you will hear me when I say you truly are being pretty in your face with some of these people with respect to the, I'm in charge now, & will break my own rules if I damn well please & there's nothing you can do about it LOL attitude you are suddenly copping.  

    I understand & respect ou getting frustrated, but your sudden omnipresence & in your face flouting of your own laws is more than provocative.  I'm saying this to you as a supporter.  I hope you will re-read my last post, as I'm pretty sure you missed my point.  You most certainly are putting yourself out there unnecessarily as outwardly above the law.

    I think it's time we all calmed down a bit, & treat eachother with a bit more respect!

    Again......   You have been doing a great job, so let's back down a bit, chill out, & have some fun.

    This has nothing to do with the mods identities being known.  It also has nothing to do with holding the mods to a higher standard.   But, I do feel that every poster, the mods included, should be held to the same standard.  It's ridiculous that some posters can get away with insults and flaming, and others cannot, based on whether they are liked or not.



    Do you understand that what you're asking for is impossible unless we go to the same standard used on the other board I post on? "No bashing or negativity is allowed".  


    Once we allow SOME bashing or negativity someone has to draw the line, and that's the job of the moderators.  Once we set a firm policy of Word 1, Word 2, etc up to Word 7 is not allowed someone is going to find Word 8 - and what do we do with THAT?  Is it allowed because it's not in the "Seven words you can't say in the forums?"  What if it's even more objectionable than the other seven?  


    And in a related topic...


    I think we all at times have said things we wish we hadn't said.  Most of us here know who deserves and gets respect and along with that respect comes an occasional "free pass".  But when someone intentionally and continually disrupts the board they don't get that respect and they lose that right to the pass.  That's why a cop may let one person off if they're 10 mph over the speed limit if they have no prior offenses and another person with multiple offenses pays a fine for the same 10 mph.


     Those are the jobs of the moderators, and I think that they're doing a good job.  But.. again.. JMO!

    Too bad there are no milkshakes to cure terminal stupidity.

     

    Pretty funny isn't it-Bill's ideas about how Ortiz has been finished for YEARS now. You know, I feel like I should block this post, but I can't. Because its true. Bill-your ideas about Ortiz being washed up are not your most shining moment here. Maybe its time you recanted and repented.

    Here is an interesting conversation.

    So we're no longer tolerating attacks against Bill, but we not only tolerate this one, we condone and compliment this one.   Nice, fair, and objective job of moderating Pumpsie.

    All the posters blowing smoke up your butt these last couple of months really has gone to your head.

    Don't you have a dog you can kick? And as far as "smartest guy in the room complex," you've owned that one longer than any other poster. Like I've mentioned to you before, you must be a 'blast' at parties.

    Wow..this thread has certainly taken on a life of it's own...lol

    I have laugh at the people who were clamoring for the mods to make their identities known...and now that it's happened they seem relentless in their efforts to pick apart and assign motivation to each and every action and statement the mods make under their "real" names.

    Honestly..I think there are less than a handful of posters here who are really overthinking this. The mods are doing a good job..the forum has improved...they have gone over and above what anyone should expect in terms of trying to build consensus and make sure that they were acting fairly.

    I mean..my God...cut these guys a little slack will you? Here you have a group of people who are volunteering their time to make this forum more enjoyable for all of us.

    If people can't see the difference between some good-natured teasing and occasional jab...and the kind of relentless sniping at 67redsox and yes..Bill...then people need to question their own bias. Moderating a forum is not an all or nothing, black and white thing. It takes judgement. They may make decisions that some people don't agree with. I haven't agreed with every decision but you don't see me here posting endlessly about it...especially since we are usually provided with a rationale for said decision.

    They seem sincere in their desire to be fair to everyone. I think , really, that's all people here can and should ask for.

    I just think it is silly Kimmi is all worked up of this. I am really trying understand her point of view but I just can't. I really don't get it nor care enough to have her explain. 




    Joe, here are some posts of yours to Mod2, aka Pumpsie, before you became a mod yourself.

     

    1.  About the unfair/inconsistent moderating:

    "So you delete the post pointing out your unwillingness to enforce the same set of rules on everyone? What is the point of moderation if you are going to use it to target certian people? I think Bill should be banned but there are others much worse and nothing is ever done. This is silly. This post is so patronizing. It is not just about religion and politics, it is mean spirited poster who try to make sure they get there way here because they can't in real life. They are extremely hostile. "

     

    2.  About the manner in which the mods were nominated and selected, and how they discussed moderating issues off site with fellow posters within their frat:

    "This is bad S5. Some sites let the users vote on mod regularly to make sure the mods are reflective of what the actual users want on a board. Here we don't know they are and they have added a third non mod to the decision making process. So this isn't democratic, nor our the owners have the site pick who regulates their board anymore. So now the mods have more power than either stakeholder group."

     

    Apparently, before you became a mod, your point of view was exactly the same as my point of view, which for some reason, you now can't understand.    The only difference is, I never insisted the mods reveal their identities because I already knew who they were, although I thought it was a good idea for them to do so.

    You had the same concerns that I had regarding the forum moderation.  And now that you are a mod, selected by the other two mods in a non-democratic manner, my concerns are silly.   Sounds a little hypocritical, if you ask me.

     I thought the point of having the mods was to have a civil place to post.  



    We do.  It's the rest of the forum. This is the thread where we trash each other now.

    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.






     





     




     




    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?




     




     



     


     


    This post is shocking to me. You're saying I will be permanently banned for doing whatever it is your're talking about and this is NOT a warning. So no warning I will just be banned forever by you like, you say, Pike has been when Babe has also been permanently banned. That also tells me a little about you and your opinion of me. Thanks for clearing that up.


     


    Btw who am I supposedly targeting? Zac? My mention of UR friend Zac is because of his abusive posts to ME. There's a timeline for my posts so you don't have to look too hard to find what you're talking about makes no sense. I've been here for years and have put up with insulting comments and abusive pics all because I make negative Yankee posts. He, also admittedly, comes here to keep Sox fans real -- meaning we can't just be fans we have to back up any positive comment with facts. What fan board has that rule, and what fan board has that rule made up by a rival team fan? Unprecedented on ANY sports board anywhere.


     


    And Zach has been banned at least a couple of times while I was here. So, for you to pretend his number has nothing to do with that, when in fact, I believe Zac has said as much is just disturbing. Can you change history as well as moderate?


     


    He was the reason I left the board 6 mos after first coming here. I made negative Yankee comments which put me on his radar for abuse. He also started the whole campaign that I was Pike along w/his friend Mikey :) and has been able to keep that going to this day which I still have to deal with. He's done it to other posters as well. He was calling Slash "no cred" in every post he made because of negative comments about the Yankees until I complained about it. He's "harmless" to the posters he doesn't target, and with your negative threads I doubt you were ever a target.


     


    And your comment about me not liking Yankee fans here is ridiculous. I've been friends with Jete for years and people constantly post they believe Steven and I are in a relationship because of our conversations -- both are Yankee fans. The "I hate all Yankee fans here" is a myth created by Zac's friends because I don't like him, and I have every reason not to. FTR I don't think that frat house likes me either.


     


    You guys really need to clean up your act as far as the way you talk to people. It's like people with #toomuchpower and loving it. JMO


     


     Edit: Should BosoxJoe be able to say these things to me without any evidence of what he's saying? My posts don't reflect what he suggesting. If he believes differently, PUT IT UP. If any of the frat boys believe differently put it up. I do expect SP and Pumpsie to address this so at least we know where we all stand as far as being banned for things that have never happened & never will as well as the threatening tone to yet another female poster.

    You misunderstood me. I am having a policy discussion with you not warning you. This is a friendly convo. You are so wrong about Zack, but that is not the point. You need to not attack fellow Red Sox fans. You are currently attacking me. Saying I only post negative stuff, which is a bold lie, and now you are telling me I have too much power. If you acted this way towards a non mod you would be on vacation right now. If you have spent time reading my interactions with Bill and the anti-bill crowd you would have to say I have spoke to them probably more gentle than I should. You a problem poster, you need to not attack other posters. If you do that we will be fine.

    How can I be so wrong about Zac when he's attacked my posts and put up negative pictures of me that everyone can see? Btw I thought you said I was the one attacking Yankee fans. Where's the proof of that? Feel free to go back as long as you have to. PUT IT UP.

    And you're also saying anything I say about you, I'm saying about a Red Sox fan when I thought it was clear you could say what you wanted about the moderators. Banning seems to be anything about a poster before three warnings, depending on the poster. You're saying I would be immediately banned for that. 

    And just to clear the air here, I'm a "problem poster"? By what definition am I a problem poster?

    harness and I never would have had our war under these rules.... and many many posters loved it.... review your own posting history and you will see how important "freedom" is......  

    it has been my battle here for two years, I guess I lost - freedom.... freedom to be a fool, and freedom to call someone a fool



    Freedom of speech is very important and I am a strong defender of that right but it has it's limitations.  For example you can't yell "fire" in a public place unless of course there is a fire.  

    Freedom to debate and even get into heated debates here is great but when people use name calling as a weapon or to demonize others then that's going too far.



    so name calling isn't freedom of speech? 

    confused.  not sure i know what "freedom of speech" means.....

     

    other names i have posted under:  none

     



    Freedom of speech does not apply in a private forum. There is no such thing.
