"Allowed"? Hmmm... Confused

My moderator's tasking usually revolves around removing steroid and other pharmaceutical ads before they even reach your eyes, as well as locking redundent threads and banishing trolls. All worthy endeavors.

Mentioning funny/disturbing/etc. items/folks from other boards we have all frequented and experienced (i.e. shared) seems inevitable, if not unavoidable, and I don't see anything wrong with it per se.

When I see "3.6 +2" it makes me laugh, as it obviously does others. Where's the harm? If it's related to thread hijacking, well, we've got alot of funny guys here and sometimes things degenerate. Whether it's Martha or beer or Oden's avatar or Donut Boy, things happen. It usually only takes a, "so, back to the subject... " to keep things on track.

If I had a nickle for every time I've seen the phrase Casual FanŽ linked to MLB Message BoardŽ in a thread on here, I'd be buying the next few rounds.

What's next? Having Levski refrain from penile analogies?!

A "Serious Only" section"?!

Simply put, I see these boards as social forums centered around the team that we are fans of. That this particular board is graced by some well spoken, intelligent, and insightful fans is a blessing. The humor all of you exhibit is for me also a blessing and that interaction is also a factor in why I come here.

my 2 cents here.... i have found this db to be so incredible i usually only read what's going on, as i find it hard to disagree w/ any of it. so i don't post as much here. but because it is so incredible it's kinda nice to celebrate it, and poke fun at the other db, which i have had enough of.
so, if a few guys wanna have a little fun at the expense of certain posters over there, i don't see the harm... it's not like an entire thread is being hijacked over it, and it's only a few pokes anyway, and i think it reminds us of how good it is here, and how abso-f'ing-lutely miserable it is over there..

i'm just glad i got invited.

Besides the obvious (thread hijacking that gets people talking about "IT" and the idiocy "over there")... consider what a Troll's motives are.

We KNOW that "IT" comes over here to read posts since he comments about this board pretty frequently, and if he sees refs to his B.S. statistical formula, THAT will just encourage him.

No problem going to that board to trash Trolls, etc., but we really don't need the blatant MLB refs.

3.6 compliant!! AAIIIIYYYEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have yet to figure out how this works? Taking pitchers with 3.60 ERA's at AA ball? Or do you just look at a guy who has a 4.00 ERA and say well he will be a 3.6 guy? Taking pitchers just on ERA is good way to ruin a pitching staff.

Hey, I don't have to be nice and polite to anyone or avoid insults. Dammit. It's my resident evil right. I'm a New Yorker... sort of.

Btw, I'm glad another 9-11 is over. I still have nightmares of the two towers collapsing in front of my eyes...

Anyhow, what's the deal with Hank and the mob?

glad to hear you got through another 9-11. you had it much much worse than i did out here in AZ, but i still remember that day too clearly, and i didn't want to go through it again. it was bad enough seeing it once, i didn't need to see it again on tv. so i avoided everything, and took in a bad baseball game. i don't have any idea how you survived today, lev. i just don't.
