Hey folks. It's come to my attention that there have been an extraordinary number of PM complaints against various member or mods regarding posts on the Non Sports board.
Frankly, (I'm being frank b/c that's how I am)...this is puzzling to me. The Non Sports board is an 'enter at your own risk board.' This means, that we allow a BROAD latitude for what is posted here - both in content and in inflection (meaning, you shouldn't get your feelings hurt if someone calls you out on a "stupid" comment). This is quite different from all of the other boards on TideFans.
Politically, each side is entrenched. You know when you post something here your own position and most likely the position of 99.9% of the other frequent posters here. THEREFORE, don't be shocked when the replies are as should have been expected.
I'm almost tempted to do what my mom used to do to me an my brother when one of us tattle-tailed on the other... we were both punished.
Give the MODS & ADMINS a break and quit running to them everytime someone posts something you don't like or states it in a manner that is less than friendly.
I realize it is not everybody that is causing problems, but there are enough that it has been brought to my attention (I don't know or need to know specific member names right now, but I am well aware of the VOLUME of the problem).
For those posting comments on the board, you MUST realize the terms of this board. While it's not the wild-wild west, it is much more likely to resemble that than any of the other boards. Don't run to mods if you don't like somebody's position. I also note that the Mods shouldn't be expected to reply to each and every complaint.
If you are one who does not like the sharp tongues on here, we have another board that might be more to your liking: The Strip. It's moderated, covers many of the same topics in a non-confrontational manner, etc. Visit there. You might find you like that better.
OTHERWISE, if we can't get this straightened out PRONTO, I'm gonna implement some overtly draconian measures.
We're all adults here so act like it.
