I'm going to tell the people who know who they are straight up from the heart. If you don't like what you read on the forums - DON'T VISIT. Do you think I care if someones feelings get hurt? I DON'T. Go talk to your counselor or someone that really cares about the shit you feel you need.

If you want to start some drama go to playhouse and get your act up to par because it's shit. The moderators and myself are not going to deal with it anymore.

I SECOND THAT SF! I'm sick and tired of people who have to complain about everything they read. I'm sick of having to break up dramas. I have had to ban numerous people for this. Plus lock numerous threads.

Bottom line, you don't give this board a hard time, we don't give you a hard time. For those of you who ARE giving a hard time we'll get rid of you. Bottom line.

OH, and do you really think I give a shit if you know where I live? Don't send me threatening F*CKING e-mails. If you're feeling brave, then come and get some. That's a personal invite.

Can we have a little context here?

Are we supposed to know who this is aimed at, and why its on the main forum?

ADMIN and SUPER MOD....

People are people.... they disagree, but I can say I have never had my feelings hurt here... NEVER!

I like what ATLANTA DAN has to say... we had a diff of opionon about the Staley release, but he's a smart guy, and he had some valid points...I'm a smart guy too....when all is said and done, we all love our STEELERS except for the trolls that come come here from other teams to cause trouble... but I would have to say everybody here gets along... even myself and ATALNTA DAN...... BUT, if you want to ban me , go ahead... I like it here, but there are many boards to post my thoughts abouts about our beloved STEELERS... thanks for your time...

Go STEELERS ....let it snow.... our running game is better anyway!.... So is our QB!

I dont think the mods are talking about the disagreements and "tiffs" that all of us have and hopefully get over pretty quickly....I think that anyone who has been on this board for the last several months have seen a small group of "saboteurs" who have directly or indirectly stirred up problems. Some have been banned and show up discreetly to cause problems...others pop in and wait for the right oppurtunity to get us to nip at each other.

Are there some people on here who dont get along...sure...and I have been just as guilty in the past of taking to long to man-up and p.m. the other party to work out a compromise....BUT what I have noticed is that those situations usually work themselves out...unless there is a "bee" that inserts himself/herself into the thread and tries to keep up the animosity

For those of us who get caught up in these things ..take a long look at whether there is a third party involved in the equation .... that is usually your culprit...antagonizing two people into open confrontationa and sitting back knowing that if someone gets banned it will be the two in the trenches and not the instigator behind the scenes.

Great post, LLT. :thumbsup: On a board this large and with so many diversified personalities, not everyone is going to see eye to eye all the time and that is fine - this is a board of opinions and debate. Every BB has its trolls and poo-stirrers and those who deliberately set out to wreak havoc and instigate "civil wars" should be shown the door. Again - with a board this large, it is difficult for the Admin and the Mods to read every single post as they do indeed have lives outside of this board, and as we all know too well, coming across the "right way" on the net is a little more difficult than having a real life discussion, as things can and are easily misinterpreted.

Like LLT, if I sense that I have offended someone (never a deliberate attempt on my part) or have posted something that could possibly be taken the wrong way, I PM the person/people, explain my stance and attempt to work it out with them directly as two adults instead of taking little pokes at them on the open board. 99% of the time, this has worked out very well, a mutual understanding is reached and we move forward. For the most part, I think we have a great group of people here that have helped this board to grow positively and prosper (in my best Spock voice) :wink02: and I think most of us want to see Steelers Fever continue to grow. We all have to do our part, though - Mike, SCM and Pros cannot do it alone.

For the record, I am more than pleased with how this board is run and deeply appreciate the efforts of our staff here. :thumbsup: Being an Admin/Mod is not an easy task - you are damned if you do and damned if you don't and it is most often a very under-appreciated task. These people aren't paid a darned dime for all they do around here to keep the peace and provide us with the best Steelers board on the net. C'mon - let's help them out here! If you have a problem with another member, take it to PM and try to resolve it. If you can't resolve it or the other person turns a deaf ear, at least you know you tried to do the right thing and the best thing to do is to then LET IT GO and move on.

If I see a member getting abused, I'm going to report it and I'm going to call the abuser on it. If the owner and moderators want to ban me for that, I don't care; you might as well do it now. I ALWAYS stand up to bullying. Allowing it to happen is paying lip service to the rules forbidding personal attacks on other members.

I think this thread doesn't make a whole lot of sense - as far as the internet goes - this is the best forum I've ever been to.. I engage regularly in discussions ranging from why Cowher isn't spitting this year - to what constitutes racism, is there a God, which Bengals are looking at jail time as opposed to probation, etc and I find myself regualarly in major disagreements, but almost always - it's resolved in a civil manner without personal attacks - (mostly by other members - not mods) - I think you must be referring to trolls and they usually give themselves away pretty quick - but I would be dissappointed if any of the regulars stop visiting for fear of any kind of censorship

I think of it as "self policing".

If we are to trust the mods to take care of the rules, and we know that the mods are not here, but we believe in the rules, then what would you suggest? You know, for all your hard line stance on worldly affairs I would expect you to be the first in line when it comes to enforcing common behavioral rules in the forum. I'm supposed to be the liberal wimp who shys away from confrontation, remember? :smile:

If people didn't act up then we wouldn't need mods. But they do.

You know what? I'll volunteer to be a mod, but only if I'm allowed to deal with personal attacks among members as I see fit.

I'm not saying that somethings go overboard. Heck I was hit with 5pts for cursing at someone....I lost my cool, I took the punishment, I moved on. This is what everyone who is bitching to the mods and even the owner needs to do, not pm them everytime there is a little problem. Too hell with this......Grow up!

Every BB has rules and guidelines and I think SF is very lenient with the very simple rules they ask us, as fellow members, to adhere to. Most BBs want to attract new members who can feel comfortable sharing thoughts and ideas with others without being heckled and put down because their opinion may differ from that of others. This just isn't right and it creates a negative atmosphere which in turn, causes quality members and potential quality members to take the "thanks but no thanks" attitude. Not everyone has the same thickness to their skin.

Tom - you are one of the most respectful and respected members here, imho. :thumbsup: I'm much like you - I don't enjoy confrontation but won't hesitate to speak my mind if the situation calls for it. I see nothing wrong with that, as long as it is done constructively, not destructively. (The exception being trolls and poo stirrers - they reap what they sow).

Let's work together to help the SF staff continue to keep this board the best Steelers site anywhere! All it takes is a little more patience, self-control and appreciation for the privilege - yes, privilege - of having such a great site to share our thoughts. :smile:

Most people here couldn't handle a day at my general topics forum, not that I would expect them too. I think the mods here do a great job though they do seem stretched a little thin sometimes (I've said it before). There are plenty of great candidates to fix that though.

Very true, NV. People also use the internet to hide behind the protection of their itty bitty screens to avoid getting a knuckle sandwich or being hauled off to the slammer for harrassment. I see them as terribly insecure people with no or little self-esteem and the internet provides them with a forum to feel "important". It's sad.
