    I don't, the mods don't sit around this board all day and they aren't customer service reps

    Maybe they have real jobs, real problems and find all this whining about rights to be entry level BS?

    That is accurate and the reason this thread was started is not even the business of the person who started it since his post was not deleted - except where he quoted the single post that was. If we get a question from the person whose posts were, I'd be more than happy to answer it, but considering some warnings that were given (and ignored), he should know why.

Why do we have to time-and-time-again stop a good discussion as a result of one inappropriate post? I have no idea what *BC* is referencing, but I'm just guessing that deleting the post was a better decision than closing the thread.
    I actually agree with this and would like to see us move in this direction.

    Seriously, get off your high horse - what do you think we owe you? Sorry that my real life job precluded me from responding to your oh so important post.

    While we're counting, how about less than 12 hours, anyway?

    Not true--I had a post deleted too...

    Could it be because you quoted and responded to the post that was deleted?

    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).

    Well, my post was deleted, wasn't it? So, there won't be an explanation as to why my post was deleted?

    If that's not clear enough for you, I don't know what else to tell you.

    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.

    The one about questioning authority? Seriously, just look at how this thread started. I just asked a simple question and people attacked me. Ridiculous...
