    Just curious... it's called "Smack Talk" for a reason and you have to be a member to view it.

    Is a decision made if a certain thread is getting too hostile, personal, and/or whatever else?

    Or does a mod just do it because he can?

    For a multitude of reasons. Is there a particular thread you would like to discuss?

    Just to let you know, threads created soley to attack another player are strongly frowned upon regardless of where they are. I know people want to put them here, and have at it. That often spills over into the main forum, ruining the site for others.

    If you want to post in a section that is less moderated, go to the adult section.

    As far as the comment "Or does a mod just do it because he can?" I would ask you to go to other Charger fan sites, and be yourself. See how much leeway you are given. Then comment on the moderators here.

    I believe you would be plesantly surprised at how much freedom you have to post what you want without the Mods doing things "because they can".

    If you feel that we are too strict, well Trumpet_Man has a place set up for you where you can do what ever you want, when you want, how you want.

    OK, but what if the contents of that thread stays where it belongs?

    As for testing the waters else where... I don't want to. I like BoltTalk. No reason to post elsewhere.

    These are only questions.

    *Sigh* I should have anticipated that the statement would be misconstrued. *deep breath, in... out...*

    I am not telling you to go elsewhere. I am glad you like it here. Stay as long as you want.

    But to post that moderators here do things "because they can" is eronious, and your eyes would be opened at other sites.

    The moderators have a difficult and thankless task. If you disagree with a thread closing, I suggest you discuss it via PM with the moderator who closed it. They would be able to tell you exactly why.

    Something else. The moderators here are nice folk. If you present a resonable reason why a thread should be kept open, there is a chance they may re-open it.

    If you post in the manner of the first post, chances are not good that you will get your way.

    Though you did state this... "I would ask you to go to other Charger fan sites, and be yourself."
    I know you were NOT telling me to ship out. I just don't want to test the waters elsewhere. It's like your suggestion yesterday to scroll back to threads from November... not a good way to occupy free time IMO. Neither is rewarding or fun in the process.

    I think the vast majority of people in here realize the volunteered time and effort that the mods put in to make this place great.
    I've met most of the mods in person an I agree that they're good people.

    About the "because they can" statement. Sorry, I wasn't trying to get anybody's goat. Some threads in the "Smack Talk" section were closed for a reason I didn't particularly understand (due to it's location).
    Though there are/were some that were posted in the Chargers section that weren't intended to be smack talk but they became anyway. It made sense to move them.

    No, you really don't haveto be a member to view the smack section.
    Do you really think that mods close threads just because they can? Threads that are closed have receive multiple complaints or are otherwise inappropriate.

    Concudan.

    I understand what the purpose is for the "Flame War" thread but what I don't understand is why were are not allowed to criticize our team.

    I just viewed it. Several posts were moved there as they should have been. Those were posts involving personal attacks towards other posters. Some of the were even personal attacks that you posted.

    Example, what's wrong with this post?
    "I don't want to ditch Cromarti but I do say "**** that peacock!!!!" If he's more interested in going jewelry shopping with Dion, he has no place here! He has A LOT to prove next season... Starting with proving that last season wasn't a fluke.
    Other wise... Bye-Bye Peacock! Cason will kick your ***!!!"


    That's not a personal attack. It's criticism towards a player.
    If you're going to say "it's because of the ****," well then there wouldn't be enough pages to fit in all of the posts.

    I'm sure you're going to tell me something like "if you feel that we are too strict, try posting elsewhere."
    Well how about this for a suggestion... if somebody offers constructive criticism, why not give it a listen? It might be good advice.

    I'm just trying to understand what the problem is/was.
    It is not a personal attack.

    Is it the "****?"
    A peacock is a bird. Was there a misunderstanding?
    Was it the word "***?"

    Your props are pointed in the wrong direction... several posters have used that pic before nb. It's called lack of personality and creativity!! :yes:

    Though the props may have nicklebolt (AKA: Chester)eating out of your hand, so pros to you!!!

    I've never seen that pic used to refer to you... or the term "stunt double" linked to it (and you).

    You do know that you're the only one who understands the link between your video and reference to me. Right?

    Wait, of course you don't.

    Carry on then.

    Hmmmm. Have you asked anyone?
    I think those that see it, get it. Cause most would agree that you are the biggest suck up in the forum. You have no personality. You'll just do and/or say whatever you think will score you some points.

    If everybody started huffing glue, you'd go out and buy the biggest bottle available in hopes to impress people. Truth and pure truth!!! :yes:

    That, ahem, dude has to be just about the most repulsive thing I've ever seen. And this is from a gal who's seen more 90-year-old naked people in fifteen years than anyone should have to in two lifetimes!!:lol:

    Nice try. I simply pointed out that in your haste to lash out at nicklebolt you were describing your behaviors as well.

    I get it that winning the internet tussle is important to you, but seriously... You need to get some perspective.
