    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.

    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.

    What did the Triumph Dog do to get banned by BDC? Does anyone have a guess?

     

     



    The Triumph Dog insulted everyone 24/7 no matter if they were a Sox fan or not. He made enemies on both sides. He was despised by all and that is probably why he finally got banned. I've only been here for about a month and know that much. The forum is better without him. I do however know who has replaced him.

     



    Overall the mods are doing a good job. Its too bad they cannot ban someone based on their IP address rather than their screen name. Good assessment about why Triumph got banned-persistent personal attacks with only a smattering of baseball related posts. I heard that Conan is also Triumph and if thats so, I will be putting him on ignore too. His modus operandi is similar.

    Here's a question. Why is it when the OP of a thread gets deleted that the thread stays up? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Sorry, wrong thread.




    your act is old and quite frankly a bit sick and very creepy...This stalking the real Burrito T and using different spellings of his Enchilada and Burrito screen names is pretty pathetic, and I for one, hope you get banned...

    This from an anonymous individual(he?she?) who besides carnie also uses the moniker: ConanObrien.

    Sorry, but repeating that nonsense doesn't make it true.

    No matter how often you try it.
