Lol. I think I got after Ohio State pretty good there for a while which may have lead to that. GB no auburn fans ever taking offense, they could’ve come after me for sure.

None of us appreciate your childish behavior. You don't engage in good faith conversation,  you post fallacies consistently, you treat others poorly and you whine to the mods at every opportunity. These traits are not even exclusive to the PF.

That you have the audacity to call out ANYONE else on this board for their behavior is just continuing proof of your inability to conduct yourself in a manner that will benefit the community. 

@Joe BryantI don't believe I've ever addressed you directly in the 17+ years I've been a member/ subscriber here. I've never reported anyone or put anyone on ignore and I've never received so much as a warning,  let alone a suspension. You're a busy guy that doesn't have time to follow individual posters and their content. I respect that. I like this place, always have. But this poster is a perfect example of the things you claim you don't want on your board. And you're allowing him to dictate what goes on, to the detriment not only of discourse,  but the enjoyment of a majority of members. Changing thread titles has always been a part of this place.  Are you going to tell @Capellathat he can no longer make jokes with the NBA thread title? That would be a net loss for these boards, IMO.

Thank you for your time and hearing me out, and for your efforts to improve our experiences here.

 

Nope, I treat others how they treat me.  I have been a subscriber for as long as you have.  Pointing out flat out lies to Joe seems like something weird to get bent out of shape over.  I posted about this to @whoknew a few days ago and asked him to change it and he refused.  If he would have simply changed it he would still have the ability to make changes to titles.

FWIW, this did happen briefly .  I think Joe and Cappy agreed to keep it less on the trolling/insulting side.

Yes. Thanks. 

Just to be clear, WhoKnew's thread titles have not been on the trolling insulting side, at all.

The guy has been the model of moderation even taking requests from Trump critics. He's a cool guy online and more than fair.

It's provided news updates and kept the title in line with current events. I'm not lobbying, just keeping the record straight.

Joe I know you've got work-work to do, seriously not bothering you about this, just getting it down.

I don't put people on ignore, and your little games aren't going to make me change that. I have no problem being respectful to you or engaging you elsewhere,  but if you'd like to put me on ignore or not respond to me ever again in the PF then I would be amenable to that arrangement.

I don't put people on ignore either.  I have no problem being respectful to you and you normally are very respectful, except for your attack on me above.

Understood. Look, I don't have time to micro manage this every minute. It's my strong preference we don't change titles constantly in a thread. It's a moving target. I completely get it that other people like it. I hate the giant threads where you can't find anything. I hate taking a huge thread and posting a new title with a serious accusation in the title and you click on the first page and it's something 4 years old. I know the "inside people" like it. Someone visiting looks at it and is :confused:   Probably why we have so few new people coming in. 

I'd much rather start a new thread on a topic and keep it on topic. I'm not going to suspend anyone if they don't and I'm not going to look at every little thing. My guess is you guys will just wear me down on this and not do what I asked and I won't have the energy to keep asking. So do whatever you think is best. I'm asking nicely to not constantly be rotating thread titles.

I remember my Mom becoming exasperated with us kids constantly running to her to mediate minor disputes that we purposefully cultivated.  I apologized to her once I was grown for having so exhausted her in my less mature years..  I was glad I did.  I am surprised now to discern her emerging exasperated tone in Mr. Bryant's tone.  I believe only children can evoke that tone.  Sad that we would reduce our benefactor to bordering on such a state.  BTW, thanks for being a benefactor Joe.

Thank you @Ditkaless Wonders  You're kind. And perceptive. I'm sorry to be short with people. Just juggling a ton of stuff trying to get the business side of FBG in the best spot possible as we start the season. Thank you.

For what it's worth, I think it's usually easier to find something if it's in a big thread. This thread is a good example. If I want to see what people were saying about the Russia stuff in December 2017, there's a record of it here. If the Russia stuff were spread out over 50 different threads, most of it would be much harder to find. JMHO. [Oops. I thought this was the Russia thread rather than the moderation thread -- my mistake, but same point.]

I have clicked on a lot of threads and posts from ignored posters in my day, and I have regretting it on occasion, but never more than in this thread/these posts. Yowza. 

@Joe Bryant I still disagree with you regarding the stuff we've butted heads over lately, but after seeing what you're dealing with I think you all deserve more than a little slack.

I thought I was by keeping the whining about moderation out of the Trump thread.  Trying to end the back and forth in there were people were accused of trolling for having legitimate discussion. 

I just told you last week, start your own thread for calling out aliases and "whining" about moderation (their words, not mine). It will keep everything nice and tidy.

I wasn’t the one whining about the moderation.  I was pulling the whining out of another thread so I wasn’t accused of derailing it when I responded to someone.

I’ve noticed it, too, and I completely agree with DW. The whining, complaining and trolling has gotten pretty bad (20+ years here), and I find myself here less as a result. Not to add to your work load, but other than what you usually say about reporting, what can we do to help you all? A lot of us care, and I’m sure many of those that care would like to help.

Truly amazing what one thread that represents another side can trigger this much disappointing behavior. If you don't like it, stick to the other hundreds of threads complaining about everything Trump.......shouldn't be this hard.

Today's discussion was triggered (pun intended) by a pro-Trump guy who complained and reported until the rules were changed to placate him.

I think this subforum is a lost cause (and I say that as someone who still posts in it on occasion).  Think about this: a thread about Jon Stewart wanting to make sure the 9/11 first responders get taken care of has a whopping 36 replies in over a week (still 1 page), while a thread the Goodbye Sarah Sanders thread, which is basically a pissing context, is over 6 pages in less time.  Most threads are snipping and #####ing at one another rather than actual, real discussion.

Wrong.  This thread was bumped with "Bump for some rather than detailing the Trump 2020 thread to complain about posters and moderation. ".   The stuff you're talking about occurred in the Russia thread.  Good try though

I’m not sure it’s a lost cause, but your points make sense. I’m into politics, so I enjoy reading the smart and informative posters, but it certainly is getting very diluted by nonsense. I scroll by much more than I read at this point, and the mods’ exasperation and frustration is palpable. I’d love to help, but I’m not sure how. I don’t report posters, but when I see the results of reporting in the threads, it just seems to cause more angry whining. And the trolling is like nails on a chalk board.

Thanks. I think the two things people can do to help would be 1) report things you see that are over the line and maybe more importantly, 2) jump into threads when you people just slapping and sniping and call them on it. If we become a board that doesn't put up with the pissing contests and the posts where they talk little about the topic and more about other posters, it'll help. Thanks.

Yeah. Maybe it would work better to just post “stop arguing” or “enough with the personal attacks,” and engage no further on that, even if they’re trying to egg you on? Joe wants us to try it, so maybe we test out brief, one-off interventions.

Somebody replying to your attempt to get the thread back on track by calling you a board cop does NOT need to result in a back and forth. Be the bigger person and let it go.

Pretty much where I'm at with the whole thing, but looking from his perspective, it has to be a bit odd that people are so dedicated to "pointing out xxxxxx" with him that they reply to just about every single post of his, even those he's not addressing to them.  Following him around and calling him names more elementary than what Trump comes up with is, well, weird.

2 in particular that I have told I won’t respond to them.  One that’s been going on for over a year.  I often wonder what makes someone continually try over and over knowing the person won’t respond.

And yet...not considered trolling.

Its beyond odd and almost amounts to harassment.  But it is what it is...they seem to only make themselves look bad so have at it I guess.

I very rarely reply to him mainly because he harasses me through quoting almost every post I make here in the psf. Some get perturbed by his behavior.  Different strokes for different folks.

Yeah that doesn't happen.  Guy derails every thread with same old schtick.  He probably gets called on 1/4th of the time at best.

The PSF was created because like an infectious disease it had to be quarantined as not to infect the FFA and SP and ruin the brand and business.  So much hate and bitterness needed to be contained.
