I've never been able to understand why some trolls get so bent of shape because I post articles. After all if you don't want to read them then don't. I don't mind if someone doesn't read them but I do think the articles provide a basis for discussion. Much better to discuss things with current information.

About a year ago or so a troll showed up and got all bent out of shape about it before they got banned. Must be post count envy or something.

To borrow a line from one of my favorite poems all I'm doing is providing "simple service simply given to his own kind in their common need."

It's from the "Sons of Martha" by Rudyard Kipping and poem is part of the "Obligation of the Engineer" ceremony.

Here is a link to if you are interested.

Thanks Mesa! I bought my motorcycle in Mesa at the Harley dealer there even though I live in Chicago. (they just had the best price at that time ... In the whole damn country!).

I have a daily routine which involves going to both pittsburgh newspaper sites and then to this forum for your articles from other smaller papers and blogs. I then click on profootballtalk.com about six times a day. Your service is immensely appreciated.

Sorry, but I agree with the guy that wants a separate thread for articles. I visit forums to discuss things with FANS, not read the articles I can easily find on my own.

A sub-forum for articles is needed...BAD. Sometimes the entire first page is nothing but articles.

Navigate around the forum if you find it so distractfull, only an idiot would find that diffucult. This is so stupid.

Mesa, I appreciate what you do on the forum.

obviously the majority of us are fine with that. he posts the articles and we discuss and debate certain areas of them. its not like its difficult to click the next page icon at the bottom if your looking for something in particular anyway.

No big deal, your opinion is fine Doctor. I might not agree with it, but we're not all going to agree on everything.

Best thing I can tell you right now is, like suggested, to put Mesa on ignore if the articles bother you. I'll look into creating a sub forum for discussing news articles, since it probably is something that would make/keep everyone happy...but I'm not even close to guaranteeing anything.

i agree 100000%. i started coming here just for that reason. i used to surf profootball, fox sports, yahoo sports, espn, etc.. everyday to find all the latest news so its nice having it all in one spot.

this is the most active section of the forum and as long as the majority of people agree with me it will be left here so everyone can read, debate and discuss them

Is'ent making new posts the purpose of a message board anyway ? I could not entertain any logic running counter to that. I for one would get board "pretty quick" if the same information / discussions were to hang around too long. I wish the message board had all new information from top to bottom every time I clicked in... so in my opinion, mesa does his job "above and beyond". Therefore, "good job mesa". :thumbsup:

WOW !!! mesasteeler .... you are sure full of yourself !!!! You act like your pulling children out of burning buildings !!! You search google and copy and paste articles ....WOW !!!

Just because you may not have the same opinion as I do on some aspects of the Steelers doesn't make someone a TROLL as you like to throw around. I hope the Mods ban you as you like to attack people with your holier than thou attitude !

I really hope that this thread makes your day, because you must have one pathetic life that revolves around this message board.

If it wasn't an attack, then it should have been taken via PM to the mods directly, or framed in a manner of referencing ALL articles, not just Mesa's. You directly called him out in the open. For the sake of argument, if it was NOT an attack as you imply, then you really are taking issue with ANY articles posted in the Steelers section that bump other threads that are started by members, correct? At what point is it "OK" to post an article in the Steelers section? Do I need to post the article in the "article" section and then start a thread in the Steelers section with a link to it? Would it be allowed if I made a comment directly against the article? Or maybe I'm assuming incorrectly and you think that Mesa is simply post-whoring and anyone BUT Mesa can post articles? And one other thing, if you want anyone to take you seriously on this topic, you should probably pull back on the condesending and sarcastic tone.

I think your opinion has some merit, but it was just poorly framed from the start and that's where it went downhill. Also, what you are asking isn't as easy as the mods creating a new section... the guidelines for posting articles in the Steelers section would need to be drafted up (with answers to the questions I stated above, plus many more) and then policed. IMHO, with things like the subscription function (so the threads you want to watch don't get lost) and the fact that Mesa really doesn't flood the forum as much as you made it seem (remember, it was the day after the Steelers clinched 2nd seed and a bye in the playoffs), it's just a little bit of overkill right now.

Yeah, I guess I'll chime in on this one too.

You don't get to question why someone is or isn't banned when your the one who started a thread (in the Steelers section of all places), calling out a specific member about their posting habits.

If you don't like a topic, don't read it. If you don't like a poster, who by all accounts has been as mild in their attacks as you were with yours, then put them on ignore. If you have a specific issue you'd like addressed, PM one of the mods. Continuing childish banter like this will get you nowhere.

And don't complain about other attitudes when you have one yourself. It's just not prudent.

Mesa,

You've grown to be my credible authority on Stiller truth and logic. And to think I spent 8 years in the Marine Corps to give these Yahoos the freedom to read what they choose. I guess there are certain people who have been spoon fed all their lives and have no idea on how to choose things for themselves. Proof again that youth is wasted on the wrong people. I think these complainers are Bungle fans disguised as Brown fans. Keep it up.

I see your point. My problem is this guy calling people "trolls" oh and "newbies" ! I dont care how many post he has or articles he posts, the fact is I read alot of the stuff he posts. I just think that when he makes 10 or 15 post in a row takes alot away from the section. Start a topic with your own thoughts not something you copied and paste constantly. I believe it takes away from people that post the own thoughts in this section. Then his attitude sucks because he thinks he owns the place !

If you've got a complaint, pm the mods. This isn't rocket science and not what I want to be reading about when......The Steelers won the division! We're heading to the playoffs!
