    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.




    Wow.   There are other posters here who are much worse, and have been much worse since I can remember.   You even acknowledged this yourself, as I reminded you in my previous post.  Yet, they remain here and KST would be on vacation?

    Your hypocrisy is clear as day in my previous post.  Your belief that Mod1 and Mod2 are not doing a fair and consistent job and that this forum is controlled by a select few is also clear as day.  I guess it's okay though, now that you're one of the select few.

    Your silence in regards to my questions speaks volumes.

     



    Kimmi, you have made your opinion known, over and over and over again. I get it. Everyone gets it. Its like Bill's message that Ortiz is washed up. I would like to direct you to the following section of the posting policy: 

    Be courteous. Don't threaten or verbally abuse other users; use obscene, profane, or defamatory language; post sexual innuendo, or deliberately disrupt discussions with repetitive messages, meaningless messages, or spam.

    You are disrupting this thread with your repetitive complaints about the job we are doing. If you have specific complaints about things we did (ie, we blocked a specific post or didn't block a specific post) feel free to mention it and it will be given due consideration. Otherwise, IMO you are beginning to violate the highlighted section of the posting policy, and its disruptive to this thread. Its time to stop.

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

     



    Perhaps if there were a response other than "we don't give a rat's azz what you think", she wouldn't feel the need to be repetitive.

    you guys stated over and over that things were as fair as you needed them to be.

    You then changed the policy for removing some posts and not others.

    Then you deny the was ever an issue in the first place and paint Kimmi and others as just whiners, when they asked if you were being even-handed, even though you changed your policy because of it!

    Good for the sheep that think you're all doing a wonderful job.

    Some of us don't feel that way. Deal with it.

    In defense of myself, contrary to what it seems like in this thread, I am not a drama queen and am not trying to create any drama.  Anyone can look at my history of posts in any other thread and know that I do not engage in this type of back and forth with other posters, nor do I call other posters names. 

    I'm sure that it seems like whining to some of you, but it's really not.  I can't help it that I take issue with the people here abusing their power and moderating with favoritism.   I will state again that there are several others who feel that the moderating has been biased or inconsistent, including BosoxJoe himself, who, in an ironic turn,  is now adding to the problem.  It's just not right. 

    It's kind of like when the wimpy, pimply kid gets bullied, and nobody cares that he's getting bullied because it's not themselves that are getting bullied and nobody likes the wimpy kid anyway.   Does that make it okay to bully the wimpy kid?   Does that make it okay to exclude him from the playground activities?   Is it okay to not call the bully out, and let him continue doing what he is doing?

    My feelings about the mods here has not changed, but in the best interest of the board, I am done posting on this topic.   I apologize to any non mod poster that I may have offended.

    Thank you! That is a reasonable and probably preferable way to handle it. I honestly didn't think of it before I archived the older threads. Bumping back up more current threads is something anyone can do, and it would defeat Pike's efforts to sabotage the forum. I also emailed Chris Rattey to see if there is a way we can prevent banned posters from bumping threads.

    Good morning, 


    Once again Pike is doing his best to ruin this forum. This time he has bumped several old threads that no one has written on for weeks to months to clutter up the front page. I hope no one minds, but I deleted those threads to make room for more current threads on the front page. If there are objections to this please let me know; otherwise, I will keep an eye out and remove older threads that have been bumped. I will also see if there is a way to prevent this from happening again. Adrienne is apparently away on vacation, but I still have other contacts at BDC and will email them before I head off to teach scuba diving for the day. 


    Kimsaythis: please take a deep breath and settle down. There is no need to get on the case of our new moderator (who nearly everyone agrees was a good choice) or Zac-or anyone else here. 


    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE





    He brings the names of other posters some not even on this forum into his comments & judgments here. That can't be cool for a moderator. As far as "everyone" agreeing it was a good choice, I've never been clear on who "everyone" in this context has been.


    And I don't appreciate my comments and concerns about Zac being grouped into some topic I need to stop discussing w/o addressing what has actually been said.

     To address the rumors: no I am not mikeyfromthebronx. I haven't spent much time there
    other than visiting a friend who lived in Riverdale. I do live in New Haven, if anyone is
    curious. If you ever stop by the Elm City, let me know, pizza is on me.


    Perfect English even with commas where appropriate. Someone is going to have to explain to me why he pretends to not be able to speak clearly in his previous posts to me. Frat you got this, right?

    The moderators in other forums have the capability to see the IP address of each poster. Is the IP address of this Guru_Meditation guy the same as Pike? Should be easy to find out.



    Guru_Meditation is Pike, but we cannot determine that by his IP address, which we cannot see. Also, we cannot ban by IP address here, so Pike is able to come back and try to post again. Unfortunately, he is as vindictive a person as you could ever hope to meet, so if he is banned he tries to figure out ways to "pay us back" rather than finding someplace else to play. Besides, IP addresses can be changed, I am told.

    I guess it's safe to say that this train has gone off the tracks!

    Posters talking pretty out there conspiracy theories, & mods obsessively responding.....

    Again, perhaps if you stop responding, & seek to be straight up, things can settle down.  

    Pike?  99.99999999% of the board is completely done with his jr. High games, & he will stay banned forever.

    KST?  Chill, & if the mods are clearly taking sides, try a simple reminder.  You are simply marginalizing yourself with every post.  & quite frankly, although I never thought you were Pike, you are on such an obsessive rant that it's even making me wonder.

    Mods?  Time to stand down.  Obsessively engaging somebody who has gone off the rails does not instill a great .  Deal of confidence.

    If you're going to get obsessive in your scrutiny of Bill, to the point where threats are levied over an obscure phrase by billy that takes incredible linguistic gymnastics to infer political intent, then you might need to get real with those who dog him with minute by minute ad hominem attacks & personal jabs.  Joining in on said attacks does not add.  To your case for credibility.

    As I said before, your generally perceived omnipresence as "mods in charge laying down the law" will likely get as old as KST's obsessions.

     

    In general, I think you're doing a good job.  Keep Pike at bay!  Slap down bigotry!  Keep Billy in check, albeit with a bit less of a somewht uneven-handed nature.  Call the dogs off off billy!  Limit the politics.  Be fair.  & have some fun.

    I assume this is unpaid, so thank you for your hard work!!!!!

    Now chill just a bit, & stop the back & forth with KST.    :)

    I guess that is one way to look at what's happening.  I was trying to be nuanced, but you may have boiled it right down to the core.  I would add the adjective "nice" to your breakdown though....   :)
