    I'll file a report for the devs on the need to hit Reply or Post several times, but the first questions they will ask me is to ID the browsers and operating systems.

    So for browsers: IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari ... ?

    Operating systems: Windows XP, Windows 7, Apple iOS ... ?

    Thanks.

    Hello Dottie,   @ 10:49 this morning I posted what I thought was a humerous, imaginative,thoughtful, humble post......  Mostly making "fun" at myself.....   With that said, "one of your board people" removed it within 10 min of the initial post....... To bad, has it was meant to have fun with all posters and break up the "lag time" in spring training !!  By removing the post, just makes BILL-806 look like the bad guy and completly missed what I was trying to do.   This removal just shows me that the "P C " Boston Globe can not see the humor from the hate !!!   Just for kicks, please look into this matter, you might even see your way to reinstate it !!!   Thank You for your time........  Your 2012 POSTER OF THE YEAR,    BILL-806




    Bill. to answer your question. your post was spam. it had nothing to do with the RS, nothing to do with baseball. nothing to do with anything. it was just spam!

    Not sure, but it might be a pc thing since I have had absolutely no issues with my Mac which is running Moutain Lion And I use Firefox as my browser...

    At times in the past, posting a reply would take time.  It wasn't immediately sent..  If I pushed the reply button again, eventually every button push created a post.  Thus, multiple identical posts.

    Re: Report problems on the Talk to BDC forum

    Burrito, any moderator is going to delete a comment that says another poster is an alcoholic. C'mon. You may think it's all in good fun, but a moderator can't determine on the fly whether it's just banter that the target isn't going to mind, or a libelous statement.

    Folks, there is not a moderator dedicated to this forum who just reads your posts all day. There is a team of moderators who work for another company. They do not look at the live site. They moderate abuse reports - thousands of abuse reports every day that come from the dozens of forums we have and the thousands of articles that are on Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com.

    Are they sometimes overly cautious? Of course! Do they miss some stuff? Yes! But in general, they do an excellent job given the volume of abuse reports they have to handle.

    So adding a post calling somebody Pike is completely useless and will not get anybody blocked because no moderator is reading the live site. 

    Look, I want to keep this forum as clear of trolls as possible. Just post here when there is a troll disrupting the forum on another thread and we'll take care of it.

    Thanks.

    how do posts with harmless silly photos in them

    get deleted in less than a min

    is this some one reporting them as abuse

    or some kind of an automatic censor

    In response to BDCDottie's comment:

    Hey mef,

    We use an outside company for our moderation. They handle abuse reports, and yes, once in a while they delete comments that are fine, or keep reported comments that should be deleted.

    We do not have auto deletion based on X number of abuse reports. We used to, but got rid of it.

    I can speak to the mods, but it helps to have specific examples. Is there a particular discussion on the Sox On the Front Burner forum with bad moderating that I can use as an example?

    ^^^^this is the response Dottie gave me. hope it clears the issue up.

    thanks mef

    but she did qualify her answer by saying


    We do not have auto deletion ''based on X number of abuse reports ''

     We used to, but got rid of it
