Re: Important: Merging of the Baseball Forums
I'm not really into censorship, but could it possibly help if we institute some sort of limit on starting threads based on post count or join date or something? I'm sure many here are referring to the numerous threads started by RedTruck. I don't know this guy at all. He (or she) may be a fantastic poster and a very smart person. But IIRC it was Puffy who correctly pointed out that all 4 of those threads were started by him/her and then abandoned. No follow up posts at all.
My point is that every thread will have some posts that are silly, extraneous, out of place, etc...but I think the main complaint of late is the numerous threads started that are either redundant or simply absurd. Any suggestions on how to control who can or can't start a thread? IIRC there was a time limit after joining before you could start one, right? Something along those lines? And just to be clear, I'm not trying to single out RedTruck, we've had numerous threads started on the same subjects and some that were beyond silly.
And I also like the merger. Things were most definitely on the "dry" side in the ORG before it. And some of the posters have really brought some lively discussion to the board. Just trying to get us thinking of some constructive solutions to the current issues is all.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
