In response to mef429's comment:
you must be thinking of someone else pike. I have MLB TV and have no idea how to watch the game otherwise. If i could, i would watch every game for free as opposed to paying for MLB TV..
you reported me for posting a link to a simple chatroom... which turns out, is not against the rules.
The illegal websites are full of malware. Were you aware of that?
It was advertising which is mentioned in the rules. It would draw posters away from BDC. I am surprised that your actions were sanctioned.
Apparently, its you that need to learn the rules. Dottie even said it was fine.
If you can post MLB.com, advertising their baseball package, then I see no reason why you should be so upset enough to try and get mef banned for posting a perfectly acceptable baseball chat. Your board police routine is very stale.
If you walk into a bar full of Red Sox fans and inform them that tonight's game is on TV and inform them what channel it is on, is that detrimental to anyone? Does the owner and bartender get upset with you and street you? If some patrons of the bar have to leave early and you tell them what radio station the game is on, is that detrimental to anyone?
However if the crowd is watching the game and you encourage them to go to the bar down the street for whatever reason then wouldn't the owner and bartender have reason to be upset because they would lose lose business?
I fail to see why you think that providing lists of TV and radio stations, giving a link to schedules and game calendars, listing options on how to watch or listen MLB and list their relative costs is so evil in your mind. Is it also wrong to provide website URLs for the Pawsox and Seadogs? Please explain to all of us why this will ruin the forum. I thought that I was providing a useful service to Red Sox fans on a Red Sox forum, information that would be useful to them. Would you rebel if BDC put such links on the forum page
Your alternate "gamethread site" may be a gamethread in theory but last night it was a room for a staff meeting for a minority of posters who are for ulterior motives unhappy with the new BDC moderation. You went to that site to plan a strategy to return to forum to its former state of anarchy and chaos. Your group want the less moderation because you find that to be more entertaining, you said that the other night. Go back to your staff meeting and waste your time.
Whatever happened to what J-Bay said last month that " the more moderation, the better"? Now he does an about face. MEF429 is banned on Monday, apologizes, pleads to get his old moniker back, Dottie conceded to him and the next day ( see above) he blasts Dottie and BDC for doing a terrible job at moderating. What nerve, the audacity, ungratiosness, can you believe that?
Noo, I don't think that you, MEF429, or J-Bay qualify to be moderators.
Listen, just because you dont like the rules you dont have to write a book in response to me. I didnt even read past the 1st sentence. It is what it is. You argued he was advertising and all I said was that you were too. and you were. If Mefs post is fine, then yours is fine as well. If you think mefs post is against the rules, then yours is too. simple.
As far as you not thinking im qualified, thats your opinion. But Im sure if you ask a lot of posters here they would tell you that Im pretty balanced and fair.
