Gonna throw my gas on this bonfire.
There have been a few members promoted to Mod in the last few years that surprised me. Surprised me to the point to where I PM'd Matt and asked how much money I had to send him to be a Mod because __________ obviously paid him to be one. This was following a tussle I had with said mod following a post/topic I posted and was promptly removed (probably about my wanting to trade Babcock following a playoff exit). I believe the mod told me to keep it in the GDT and following my explanation that the season was over and this was a valid thread, they essentially told me to F off because I was just bitching.
Now, when someone starts a thread with a coach/player's name in the title that will obviously be a critique of his play/leadership, Mods and members both know that there will be some mud slinging. If you don't then welcome to the internet. There very well may be some off topic posts, attacks, and trolling. Just delete it. Or better yet, cross out all the text and add a response as to why it was crossed out and give a warning. Flame-bating doesn't belong. But when the Mods close a legit thread, or remove a post that was meant as a poke at the Mods treating the thread like a Third Reich library, then something is wrong.
