Screw the figurative pissing contest. Instead have a real pissing contest at center ice. Closest to the goal wins. Also would be a great time for a beer commercial between turns...

#2615458 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by Jedi on 20 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

We've confirmed that the recent influx of spammers are actual people, not spambots or anything like that. As such, there may not be much we can do to prevent the occasional attack.

We have tools that make cleaning up these attacks extremely easy (one click on their profile and they're banned, content removed and ip-blocked). But unfortunately we can't use these tools until the spam posts are brought to our attention. That's where we need members to use the "report post" tool.

When a post is reported, the system sends an email to each of the boards moderators and Admin. That way we get notified, even if we're not on the boards.

One thing though, most of these spammers tend to attack the boards in the very late/early hours, when most people are asleep. LGW mods are just like everyone else, we have jobs and responsibilities that make it hard to be online at the time these spammers hit. So please understand that we will take care of the attacker as soon as we can, but it may be several hours before a mod can be online.

#2611359 The return of The Mule?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 May 2015 - 09:33 AM

Well you weren't the one regularly insinuating that Franzen was a homosexual malingerer either.  But that didn't stop plenty of people from doing so. 
Franzen, more than any other player on our team, has been singled out for personal criticisms which have nothing whatsoever to do with his play on the ice.  It's odd to see those very same folks showing concern for his personal well being now. 
Anybody can be criticized (justifiably) for their play.  But much of the Franzen hate has gone WAY beyond level headed scrutiny.

True. But I think that starts to happen to a degree with anyone who's become a scapegoat here. Ericsson, Cleary, even Howard the second half of the season. People were acting like Clearly's objective was to singlehandedly ruin the Red Wings and that he was a greedy, terrible person.

Franzen has just been a scapegoat for a lot longer than most so the bashing has gone further afield, though honestly I don't remember a ton of criticism's that involved his personal life. Though there have been plenty of childish insults.

Sometimes as a rabid hockey fan we forget these guys are real people.

Sounds like backpedaling to me.


Exactly what you'd expect out of a beardless pantywaist.

Not everyone... Cleary is staying.

We can either fight about our differences, or we can embrace them and happily eat Starburst together.  
Gotta love diversity.

I'll take the reds and yellows, you take the pinks and oranges. Problem solved.

Music that is newer than mid-to-late 90s is just not that good (by and large, of course certain notable exceptions exist).

Pray the Ducks win tomorrow because the Blackhawks will slaughter the Lightning.

#2611350 Improved Spam Protection and Forum Maintenance Update

Posted by Matt on 29 May 2015 - 08:32 AM

The LGW forums have been upgraded to Google's reCAPTCHA2 spam security, with the expectation this fixes the flux of spam users that have infested the site the last few days. (The old reCAPTCHA 1 version obviously isn't as bulletproof as it once was.)


While performing that upgrade I also performed a general maintenance update for the forums as well.




I'm currently testing a major upgrade to the forums to IP.Board 4.0, which should roll out later on this offseason! It promises a whole host of new feature and functionality.

#2610988 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 28 May 2015 - 09:07 AM

I realize that there's all sorts of residual hate from the rivalry (or what was left of it), but I really don't understand hating the Blackhawks and wanting teams in our conference (and particularly our division) to win.  Firstly, because f*** anybody else in our division.  But secondly, because the Hawks play (and win) EXACTLY like we used to.  They're the Red Wings.  If anybody should be able to appreciate just how good they are at what they do, it's us.  If you'd just thrown Red Wings sweaters on the Hawks last night, it could have easily been confused for the 2009 conference semis. 
Maybe that's the reason why, now that I think about it.

For me it's basically a decades old hate for the Blackhawks. It's in my DNA at this point.

And for a slightly more rational reason, the more Cups the Blackhawks win the more they move towards dynasty status and overshadow what the Wings had accomplished.

I actually don't mind the Duckies, aside from Perry - who makes me want to punch his face in for simply existing.  The Hawks... my hate-list is long, long..... I even hate their coach, and their idiotic goal 'song'.... they need to lose now.  Go, Ducks.

I thought it said couch. I was like Damn! Now that's a lady with pure hatred in her heart, even hates their inanimate objects.
