    You have no clue who we banned and who we didn't ban.

    We banned anyone that crossed the line of civility or continued to harp on the same thing over and over after we warned them to cut it out. We didn't have a dog in any fight other than making sure the board wasn't turning into a circus.

    Imagine IF cats and dogs were living together in sin.......panic

  • Not trying to cause problems, I know it was a tough situation to deal with but when there was 10's of pages to dig throughout to see what was said it seemed as if those that were being pointed at by the believers and saying "ban this barner troll mod's" that usually by the end of the night there was one group left standing. One of my buddies lost his account due to this. He asked what one of the "insiders" had ever been right about and was berated. He said no worse things than what were being said to him and was banned while the others were not. That is the only instance I'm certain of but it is water under the bridge at this point. Watching the board I noticed similar people being drawn into E-confrontation. Just thought some of those guys were treated unfairly just because the majority was pointing fingers. I know at the same time it is hard to moderate a board so no worries.

    Do you not recall CC's "heh heh heh" posts or jawa's "Imagine" threads? Those two turned their "insider info" into a production. Glad it's over.

    CC, the Hollywood tv/movie man, turning something into a "production" on BOL? Surprise, surprise...

    No I do not know everyone who was or was not banned, I just know how it looks from my perspective. I think honestly what happened was that for a long time the doubters were in the minority and if things got heated the appearance was that it was a few troublemakers stirring the pot when there was equal vitriol from the believers but just spread around more.

    But I'm not interested in getting into an argument with a mod about this, particularly since I think you guys do a really good job. I'm just glad this whole thing is finally over.

  • OP - I think you missed the issue people had with so called "insiders". Shane, so is there no issue with posting baseless rumors?

    Fwiw ... Not flaming anyone , but it sure seemed heavy handed in favor of the
    insiders . I agree with you totally about the " appearance " of things . I know I
    was physically threatened at one point by a poster and when I complained ,
    nothing was done about it .. I mean words are one things , but physical threats ?

    Additionally ,, The most prominent insider had an entire thread of honor and
    praise dedicated to him for being bol's " most followed poster ." by our Staff.
    They certainly did not mind the traffic it was garnering . The truth be damned ,

    Now , One may take this as a flame , but I am just trying to discuss this in a civil
    manner with no malice at anyone . I think our staff does a great job in many areas.
    I for one just don't beleieve this entire Au thing was handled well .

    We wasted an entrie year on it . None of it was true . It turned a bama recruiting
    site in to a Au investigation site that was motivated by the selfish self promoting
    interest of a few insiders ..

    Like you . I am glad it is all over .. This board is a much better place for civil
    Bama Discussion .. Much better than last year . Now , We can focus on ourselves
    again rather than on a one year wonder down in Auburn . Roll Tide Guy's ..

    Shane , Respectfully . I don't know who you banned or did not ban , but the
    truth is the board was a circus . This is no flame , no disrespect at you , but
    it is obvious that there are a lot of members that didn't see it like you . This
    is my honest opinion that I have tried to state in a civil way so please don't
    view me as a rebel rouser . This is not my intent . A lot of us don't share your
    view.

    A bunch of grown ass men ridiculing and rubbing in the fact a few were wrong. As much as you call them attention whores for having their followers what are you trying to prove? That you want attention for pointing out their short comings.

    Pot calling the kettle black......

    It made for good reading and everyone involved feels the need to draw party lines. Why make all this mess in the middle of a dream season? Some of our fan base is pathetic for worrying about anything and everything to do with our team and what people say or think related to it other than the fact that we are the most dominating force to hit a field in quite a few years.

    Rant over.

    Although I can understand what you are saying I come up short of agreeing with it. When people on here did not agree to what the "Insiders" were saying they were publicly executed. Now that the NC2A has come out, I think they deserve to say what they want to since we all believed what the "Insiders" were saying as gospel. JMO..........

    Lol ya we do. You made it obvious several times with your comments after you booted people. Like "i think you need to find another board...bye"

    And the board was a.circus but I didnt really care being that it was the off season. You would have lost a lot of us if you hadnt ended it when you did, so props for knowing when enough was enough.

  • You are assuming that this board is full of "Grown ass men", bad assumption!

  • HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HEH HE HE HE HEHEHEHE HEHEHEH

    HHHEEEHHH
    HEHE HE HE HEHEHEHE HEH HEH HEH heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh hhe hheh heh

    NO THat is being an attention **ore ANd childish, certain posters on this web site lied to everyone on here and this is what you come up with?

    I think you have been hit in the head too many times....

    It was not the fact they where wrong. Its the fact they made up alot of sTuff and posted it as fact. They pulled a Bama version of ORD. That is just as bad has the tree killer And is embarrassing to the students and our fan base, And the entire state of Alabama. I hope the Aubies take all of them to court and Sue them for whatever they can.

    As a matter of fact we make fun of SBB.com and JEff Lee.
    Look at our own Fan base dude.

    I called out HelenaTider and i was downvoted but i don't care cause again its gay anyways. And JAWA said some things that would have gotten me banned.

    THis site plays favorites. And you are a"GOOD OLE BOY" so i expect you to act like this.

    How sweet! Will you put up a video like that kid did for Britney??!! Too bad these boom insiders attacked those who didn't drink the koolaid. Sorry your defense for these trash posters is a complete failure. They made their bed and now it's time for the staff to step up and boot them.
