OK, what is th point of having a "blast furnace" to talk smack in, if the mods are gonna selectively close threads that people are talking personal smack in? If you are going to close a few of them, you should close all of them. Just b/c 3 to be 4 got his lunch handed to him by two mildy retarded Bengal fans, doesn't mean the rest of us didn't want a chance to at least defend the honor of the site by talking soem smack back at Bengal Brian and his hypoglycemic friend. That's lame BRC for shutting those two links down.

I believe the Blast Furnace is for talking FOOTBALL smack...those threads were absolute horse crap...and of no value whatsoever....kudos for shutting them down

203 has it correct. The Blast Furnace was created to talk Football Smack...its not a personal bashing and criticizing campground. It's made to hold all the heated debates, that's why its not so heavily moderated and you're allowed to swear in this forum more than out in the other areas of SF.

Sometimes you get into a war of words when you're debating topics and football is no different. You're just allowed to be alittle more liberal in here.

Bengal Brians smack is all over the Blast Furnace. There's plenty of threads all over the place you can reply to him at.

I happen to agree with 203 and the mods.

Im sure there are plenty of football board out there where accepted smack includes accusing fellow posters of paedophile tendencies - im pretty sure this isn't one of them.

As far as I understand it, the furnace is for calling out each others teams - not each other.

I really appreciate the way you stated that....I know I get VERY irritated at some of the trolls who come in and talk stupid.. and I have been guilty of retaliating...but it IS nice to see cooler heads prevail..

Then lock all of the threads like that, don't just pick and choose.

BlitzburghRockCity

Nobody is picking and choosing. If you had read the recent threads that have gone up you would have seen that we are currently working on trying to catch up with the ones that have gotten out of hand before. Besides the fact that we aren't going to lock every single thread if just one or two people say a few things that are alittle outta control. If we can save the thread by asking those who are involved to cool it, and things get back on track then all is well. If we ask those individuals to chill and they still do not, we can also delete or edit thier posts. We dont just go around locking threads at will whenever we feel like it !! We try and save the thread first before we consider locking it or deleting it!

Thanks Lamberts,

Feeling is mutual.

I enjoy a debate/disagreement as much as the next man/woman - its always appreciated when the other side argues the topic rather than the person.

I dont mind admitting I have had my views altered on a few subjects just by listening to guys like yourself.

Just b/c 3 to be 4 got his lunch handed to him by two mildy retarded Bengal fans, doesn't mean the rest of us didn't want a chance to at least defend the honor of the site by talking soem smack back at Bengal Brian and his hypoglycemic friend1st of all brian and slave couldnt hand lunch to old folks in a retirement home cafeteria.

this bengalfan lovefest is pretty revolting. atleast cantstop85 actually brings some football talk to the table. bengalslave comes here and attacks the boards female posters and the board itself. which means he attacks EVERY member of SF. he puffs his chest and talks about how weak the blastfurnace is and how he owns it, yet any time ive invited him down here he runs scared. thats cause hes got nothing, unless its at 3 in the morning and no one else is posting.

but i guess if you have a stewie av or a man grappling sig, that makes you cool. atleast i let them 2 punks know they were just that, PUNKS.

i checked out the catbox just to see how tough and manly it really is and i saw the admin ripping hburghxl06 simply for being a steelerfan and a poster named kittykicker get banned just cause the admin quickly got sensitive and his feelings were hurt. yet they whine about getting banned here as they still post??????

theyre here to flame and have gotten their behinds handed to them every time they appear. and they never talk football cause fact of the matter is, when youre a bengalfan, there is no football to talk about. just the tradition of losers, from loser fans of losers. bengals lost. steelers won their 5th. suck it, kuntcats

i agree they shouldnt be alowed to get in the 1st slap if were not allowed to punch back. brian had to send his daddy over to handle his heavy lifting for cripes sakes. weak

In their defense, that kittykicker username was a joke made by one of the staff members. That entire thing was all planned out.

:hunch: i caught that. i previously posted that they are so bored there they pretend to be steelerfans to stir up some some action. i guess it was an ex- sf poster bengalfan21

its really besides the point and there really is no defense. point is their admin bit hook, line, and sinker. 2nd point is that the board admin and mods come over here bitching and whining how lame this board is and getting banned and beg our posters to join there, and "smack" with them, when everyone here knows they will be promptly banned. i know you post over there and are probably an established poster who would be granted more lee way but if i were to join and post the same flame they have posted here i wouldnt last 1/10th as long as those girls have here.

the sad sacks are still sour over their qb falling to injury in their teams biggest game in years. but you know what? backups like k. warner and t. brady were able to lead their teams to sb victory. f. reich was able to come in in the playoffs and lead the greatest comeback ever. even t. maddox was able to lead the greatest steeler playoff comeback as a back up. the 2 flamers need to get over it and just come to grips with the fact that the steelers are the better team. always have been, always will. nothing those 2 tools say will change that.

Just for the record as Prosdo mentioned, the idea of adding another moderator or 2 is being discussed and should happen at some point soon, atleast before the start of the season if not sooner.

Mods are appointed by the current management team and approved by the Admin. If we let everyone vote then people's feeling would get hurt way and end up getting upset way to easily so to avoid any dramatic occurences like that, its common protocol on forums for the management team to appoint the next mods.

Don't worry, myself and prosdo are well aware of all the good candidates here on SF. :tt:

One option that Ive been thinking about recently is asking Mike about appointing a couple new mods and perhaps giving each of them a few forums to moderate till they "get their feet wet" so to speak and then giving them more powers as time goes on, so we'll see.
