...I think baseball2006 clearly overstepped, and I think alot of others do, too.

A recent post, not by baseball2006, talks about the boundaries that a parent crossed - and I think most of us agree that the parent did cross, and perhaps his posts should have been deleted.

I think most of us agree the rest of the posts did not need to be deleted. In fact, I was fortunate enough to read the final post of that string MINUTES before the entire string was deleted by baseball2006. Unfortunately, I doubt if many/any others got to read what was quite an eloquent presentation.

There have been some recent suggestions regarding "control" of out-of-control moderators. Can you provide some insight as to what, if anything, can be done on your end in order to reign some of this behavior in?

As an aside, I really don't like the censorship - but, apparently, you folks are going to do what you are going to do to maintain control of the content of this board. I don't believe you have exposure with respect to slanderous comments - as long as you lay responsibility for the slander at the posters doorstep. But for some reason you folks are instead going to take the tact that if you don't like it, if it crosses YOUR lines, you're going to delete it and possibly ban the poster. But now, it doesn't appear YOUR lines necessarily are the same amongst moderators and those who run this board.

Nicholas, reaction/comments please. Thanks.

the thing is we do not have time, nor do our volunteer moderators, to go through a five page thread and only delete the offensive posts, replies and quotes...



That's why you need more old coots that have all the time in the world. []

I agree BASEBALL2006 needs to be removed as a moderator.
As far as the censorship goes, I don't really get bothered by that.

Its "GREAT" to have others that feel the same way I do. But I must say,I made a thread like this on the Boys Baketball Board concerning this board and the Mod in question and it promtly got deleted.

i deleted all the threads you are talking about... the thing is we do not have time, nor do our volunteer moderators, to go through a five page thread and only delete the offensive posts, replies and quotes...

since those threads have been deleted i haven't had a chance to be on the girls board due to covering the boys state tournament so i will keep a closer eye on it...
