    Sorry, folks, I was unaware Moon had started such a thread and didn't know it had been removed. We use a moderation company to handle abuse reports, but they are not supposed to remove threads ... only Boston.com employees can. I'll try to find out who did it, but in the meantime, my apologies.

    Thank you Dottie. Hopefully Kim will now get it that the Yankee cabal who resides on this forum are not al-Qaeda.

    Dottie - one last thing -when you find out who in this moderation company did this, if they are in fact a Yankee fan - tell him/her that we don't need them here.

    In Response to Realistic Yankee Thread:
    Moon has been a respected poster here for years. As far as I can tell, he has never bashed the Yankees in his threads for fun. He is also the author of a series of "Tampa Bay not going away" threads, much to my disappointment. Not that he puts them up, but because when he puts them up, I know we're going to have a problem with them. His Yank Tank thread was well-researched, and as per usual Moon, also included statistics to back up what he was posting. My opinion is there is no way that thread should have been removed as everything to do with the Yankees has to do with the Sox being in the same division. Again, his Rays threads have always remained as well. Do you believe his realistic thread on the Yankees possibly tanking this season should have been removed on a Sox forum? I'm not putting this up as a poll because that's anonymous voting, and you never know where the votes are coming from when you do that.

    Forget about a Realistic Yankee thread. Troll Babe is back. The forum will revert back to what is was when J-Bay, Space, Mikey, and Nagy enabled the village idiot. Nice intentions by Moonslav but it will never happen.

    Actually pikette, it seems to me from looking around here that most people feel it is you and your various monikers who interrupt the flow of a majority of the threads here.

    That's pretty funny; despite having a valid point now and then, pike discredits himself by having half a dozen active monikers; it's a litmus test, like a 60 yr old who still lives with Mommy.

    In Response to Re: Realistic Yankee Thread:
    Sabathia’s weight became an issue when he faltered in August and September a year ago. While he appeared to be gaining pounds as the season progressed, it wasn’t mentioned much because Sabathia was 16-5 with a 2.55 ERA through Aug. 1 and a serious Cy Young candidate. After Aug. 1, Sabathia went 3-3 with a 4.30 ERA during the regular season and allowed nine hits and five earned runs (6.75 ERA) in two starts (6 1/3 innings pitched) against the Tigers in the ALDS. And the weight on Sabathia’s 6-foot-7 frame became a popular topic. Several clubhouse staff sent a text to Brian Cashman stating that they saw Sabathia wolfing down a bucket of fried chicken and sneaking a few beers on his off days in a secluded corner of the clubhouse when he thought that he was alone. Cashman met with Sabathia privately over the winter and reminded him that his contract had stipulations in it regarding weight limits.

    Thanks for your reply. Sounds like, if they can't remove threads then it was someone at Boston.com. I feel since it wasn't just put on another board, someone must have wanted it removed completely, and may have possibly requested it not through "report abuse". Still shouldn't be able to completely remove posts or threads just because someone doesn't like them. There's also the flip side of that with posters being reinstated to their original post counts after they've been banned numerous times. That's not fair to the posters they've abused here. So I'm completely at a loss as to what the game plan is for the board. Seems like Sox fans posts and threads are being removed, and Yankee fans are being reinstated after being banned. 

    This board is becoming seriously micro-managed - mostly against Sox fans. I don't know if that has to do with the outsourcing of the moderation, but it is a sports forum, and that should be taken into account when they're judging posts so harshly. JMO

    After reading this thread, one would have to wonder if it would even be possible to have a "realistic" Yankee thread on this forum. Just seems like it would wind up as just another place for Yankee fans and their friends to hang out on, with positive posts and pics of the Yankees scattered throughout, and little discussion about any realistic view of the Yankees.

    You know what I didn't include? The fact that I believe JBay is the difference between the moderating then, and the moderating now. It's possible he has become somewhat of a moderator here. I believe he took up moderating the private board, that's why he knew I didn't sign up, and accused me of being Pike because of it. I never said I didn't sign up. How else would he know that? That would also explain the extreme Yankee slant here, and his posts encouraging them to get reinstated with a winking icon. JMO

    FTR Yankee fans must have known this, or he wouldn't have been winking. That would also mean you would know this as well.
