#2318030 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

Posted by Louisville on 11 July 2012 - 01:03 AM

Lol alright Matt, you win. I didn't call out any specific mod but it's ok for you to tell me I can't read.

You ask me what happened like you're interested, but call me childish for even bringing it up. You think your mod did the right thing, I don't. If you want I can write you up what happened but I'm done getting baited here because I don't always agree with the mods or things happen that are not ideal. Which you admit at the end of your post.

Since your "personal attack" note doesn't say anything specific, didn't alert me at the time, and which you admit doesn't have basically any info about what happened, it looks like you pretty much trust your mods to do what they please unless notified otherwise. Good to know from here on out.

I have stated plenty of times in the past that if anyone has a problem with any particular moderators to personally message me through the forums here. You failed at that, so I don't quite see how you were "ignored" when you didn't even attempt to contact me about the problem. Moderators are not obligated (but encouraged) to let members know when content is removed -- in 99% of the cases the post/topic has broken an obvious forum guideline and in such cases the poster should have known better before posting it.

I guess I never noticed these 'plenty of times' that you said this, and I now see it in the forum guildlines. I don't know how long that's been the there but it's weird I've never seen it before after 6+ years on these forums. Anyway, I didn't feel the need to go over this mod's head because they were responding back and forth in PM. Their stupidity was more humorous than frustrating, so I didn't fail to do anything but laugh it off. If my post gets deleted even though I was on topic and didn't attack anyone, I'll be sure to come and whine/complain to you from now on.

This may come as a surprise to you, but all of the moderators here have lives outside of the site and are volunteers. So there are periods during the year -- shockingly -- where the traffic double or triple "normal" levels and during such periods, yes, the content added to the site is quite a task to keep up on. But I can simply turn that on its ear: Are you saying, Louisville, that you and your fellow members need to be babysat? That the moderating staff has to studiously comb through every page of every thread? I would like to think that the community here is mature enough to sense when something stinks and isn't appropriate and uses the "Report" feature. It instantly notifies all moderators/admins, most via e-mail.

Despite your condescending tone, this was not at all a time that the forum was busier than usual (late Feb/beginning of March), and it was a topic I started. So nothing was reported, the mod just read the topic and clearly wasn't feeling it. Apparently one mod found it ok enough to respond to it, and but the other just removed it. I'm not saying that members need to be babysat, I don't even know where you got that from. I just found the crackdown funny, sorry for being honest. I'll definitely try to hit "print screen" before my posts are removed or something.

The last time you had a warning point will be four years ago on the 24th of this month, ironically for what constituted a "personal attack" -- so you can just quit sensationalizing. You're not the first poster to feel that having a post/topic removed is some sort of "elitist mod's" personal affront to your sense of self-importance, and not likely the last. Most just handle it better.

I've looked a this 'warning point" and the details were blank, if you'd like to PM me what this was in reference to I'd love to know. Otherwise I can just assume this is your BS attempt to personally call me out. Which is also just hilarious considering the topic.

And to your second point, of course I'm not the first poster who feels that way, but I'm sure most just take it without argument. If you want to create an open discussion about this let's at least be honest about that. Otherwise, just post your rules and close the topic.

Look, I love this forum (why else would I be a booster?) but if something is going to be removed/modified/or result in a ban I would hope that it remains consistent . Looks like you guys are heading in the right direction at least.

Oh the irony. Still remember a couple months back when my topic was deleted based on my opinions and when I was personally attacked it was ignored. When I messaged the monderator that deleted it, they couldn't even explain to me why my post was removed. It's funny how this place is busy with morons after free agency, and now the mods can't even keep up.

I'm sure this will get removed and I'll get one of those spiffy warning points too. Don't worry, this isn't the only place that on the internet that suffers from moderator elitism.

#2272983 Are Chicago fans not as bad as we thought?

Posted by Louisville on 22 March 2012 - 01:39 PM

As someone who goes to the United Center on a regular basis, yes they are huge douchebags.

They chanted "Detroit Sucks" at their Cup parade, when we didn't even play them in the playoffs.

Yeah, I'd say they're as bad as we thought.

They don't just do that at cup parades, they do it before the puck drops even when the Wings are not playing them.

I'm sorry, is the season over? Did I fall asleep or something?

Didn't realize it was all locked up for them.

You know, the funny part is that even though this was started as a joke, you know there's people who clicked on the thread and still legitimately want know what's the deal with the font. :lol:

I know we play them tonight but I thought this was hilarious...especially since it was posted by NHL Video.

I feel like theres some plan in place, why would Holland waste his time if he was just going to get picked up?

#2095033 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Before a whole mess of people go nuts over MM just know that it is TV, it is about ratings and presenting contrasting viewpoints.

True that, but the fact that he starts off by yelling "LOVED IT" twice before the guy finished his sentence is just typical Milbury.

But hey, I never take him seriously because he is the definition of FAIL when it comes to managing a hockey team. Him and McGuire are just clowns with gigs.

48.1 Illegal Check to the Head - A lateral OR blind side hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and/or the principle point of contact is not permitted.

Campbell says it was a definite lateral hit, so I'm not sure what Calgary and it's dumb ass fans are arguing. Too bad it was an idiot 4th line scrub but hey, they're lineup is full of crap players.

Have fun not making the playoffs.
