Default A Suggestion for the Off-Topic Mods

Can we get a sticky with a running list of threads that were deleted for inappropriate discussion? That would be fun.

Can we grow thicker skin? If a topic bothers you simply don't open the link.

It isn't like a controversial post causes a child to fall down and skin his knee or lightning to strike an old lady. Unless it is a fraud scheme or illegal, what is the purpose of censoring an off topic forum? Reading is optional. Everyone knows that, right?

I would also recommend permanently banning anyone who posts 'in before lock' with no other text included. Those posts are clutter and serve no purpose. What exactly does that provide the poster? Does he notch his belt buckle or sew on stripes?

Regardless of what criteria the mods use to censor, IMO it does significant harm to lose track of those deleted threads.

I agree. We aren't even allowed to speak like adults anymore and discuss things that actually. Stop letting kids join the boards and there would be no issue.

Should be zero. Nothing out of line was said. Members like Addison need to man up and quit crying when other people think the opposite of him.

Yes on addison.

I don't recall much, from either side, that should have even been reported.

Look, just because I don't like your opinion that the majority of the country would be far better off if blacks were sent back into slavery, doesn't mean I was crying. You are entitled to believe that, as you put, when slavery was an American institution, "they (blacks) were under control". I am entitled to think that's a ludicrous assertion and will not tolerate racist remarks like that. You should be ashamed, and I would hate to be a blowout member who happens to be black have to be subjected to posts like that.

Surprised it was deleted actually, as others have stated...there was plenty of disagreement, but I didn't see anything that would have been worth a suspension or ban.

That thread turned into stupidity over night. When you are advocating against racism, it might not be smartest thing to call someone "white trash". But then again, none of the keyboard warriors bat an eye at that, so it must be acceptable and not derogatory. I will have to check with the White Knights of BO to confirm if "white trash" is a racist slur or not. I'll report back.....

I think Lindeman is suspended, not sure how though.

Too many people take things too personal and have no idea how to react. A suggestion would be to act as if you were face to face and say things that you would be willing to say in a public place. We See "keyboard warriors" way too often here on BO but at least take some pride and wonder if you would be proud of introducing yourself by your user name if you ever actually met.

We're better off quoting 30 Rock and entertaining ourselves with the contempt D2R has for the Braves organization.
