    Deleting posts

    Is this considered an acceptable form of censorship by the RZ mods?

    Must you whine every time the mods do something you don't agree with? The mods have an impossible job of keeping this board enjoyable and they do a superior job at it.

    Is there something wrong with questioning authority?

    You know, I went to college where you presumably do, and I feel bad for you if this is how you choose to spend your free time (questioning "authority" in an overly rude manner on a freely run, private baseball board).

    I don't think I should respond to this personal attack because it will more than likely get me into trouble. Shame on you for breaking several of your own rules from the bottom of the page all in one post...

    Don't worry - you're already not on my Christmas card list for your ridiculous posts (including attacks on the moderators) in this very thread.

    Just for the record, there's no doubt that I did with the comment of mine that you quoted. Should I have been a bigger person that you apparently are? Yeah, I should have been, but in this instance, I wasn't, though you certainly had it coming with your comments in this thread.

    This is found at the bottom of every page at redszone:

    Board Moderators may, at their discretion and judgment, delete and/or edit any messages that violate any of the following guidelines: 1. Explicit references to alleged illegal or unlawful acts. 2. Graphic sexual descriptions. 3. Racial or ethnic slurs. 4. Use of edgy language (including masked profanity). 5. Direct personal attacks, flames, fights, trolling, baiting, name-calling, general nuisance, excessive player criticism or anything along those lines. 6. Posting spam. 7. Each person may have only one user account. It is fine to be critical here - that's what this board is for. But let's not beat a subject or a player to death, please.
    Thank you, and most importantly, enjoy yourselves!

    If I were you I would demand my registration fee and monthly dues back. Who are they to decide what is and is not allowed on this board? You are entitled to say what you want where ever you want.

    Seriously though, while I don't know what *BaseClogger* is specifically referring to I do think it's a fair question. I wouldn't say that deletions shouldn't happen at all but I don't see why it can't be asked if there's a clear reason to delete every post that's deleted. I would think there'd be no harm in asking those type of questions. Instead people seem to want to bash *BaseClogger* for starting the thread. Doesn't make sense to me but anyway...

    No, there is no reason that posts are deleted. The mods go around deleting posts willy-nilly. In fact, this post will soon be deleted due to the obvious sexual connotations of the term "willy-nilly".

    C'mon, let's use some common sense. If a thread is closed, or a post deleted, the mods have determined a reason. I would suspect those reasons would be obvious to anyone that read the forum guidelines.

    This is just as sarcastic as The Baumer's posts. Delete it!

    You're in their house, they have every right to delete posts as they see fit.

    I don't have statistics to back this intuition but I'd be very surprised if more than a handful of posts are deleted by mods (without a request by the author) in a given year.

    I can think of several different instances over the last six months when posts from the Non-Sports forum has had posts deleted.

    I hope I don't get exiled to Siberia for this thread!
