It is unbelievable that you can't see objectively what happened. You KNOW who the problem posters are that have been doing this for years. I didn't come on the thread and start a problem. It's been out of control with certain posters taking carte blanche bashing and hijacking threads of their rivals. I responded as I previously did with warnings then infractions when they were appropriate. Strict moderation is necessary when appropriate to establish the way the board will be run. Massillon bashing is a tradition that certain posters follow as their primary style because it's permitted as long as I've been on the site. It has established a pattern thats spread throughout the site. If you want to close you eyes to it that's your decision. Your dead wrong about your assessment of the situation and you need to stand behind your moderators decisions.Further supporting the facts I had a moderator in a different forum message me about the same treatment.
The problem was posters complaining about threads being hijacked and another moderator was attacked for moderating it. I posted a warning and was attacked with personal messages. A thread was created to continue the out of control posting. A simple addressing of those involved will straighten up the problem. Those are hard indisputable facts that merit major sanctions. If the situation had been addressed immediately when I posted you it wouldn't be out of control. The problem posters are still posting their garbage seeing how much they can get away with. You are totally mistaken with your comment that I'm moderating based on what I like. I was a police officer for 35 years and I understand the concept of being fair and objective and making decisions based on the RULES not my personal feelings. Any action taken was on CLEAR rules violations and never on personal feelings.
I noticed no money to account for my PTC thred. I posted and buckman consolidated my with the previous PTC comments. I'll start individual sectional stuff tomorrow under Mark Adelman but after my initial post will go back to FirestoneFan, OK
