However, I must not have done anything warranting a warning, either. I think everyone would do well to not only remember that this site is a privilege, not a right; and then go over and look at Reds.com and similar boards to see just how fun it is at boards where everyone gets to go free-for-all.
It sounds like you'd be happier if you weren't here.

Here's an idea, if you have problems with a mod, a) let another mod know b) let Boss know.
There's a list of mods on the bottom of the main page.
Maybe it should be pointed out too that since mods generally don't discuss specific actions publicly, it's essentially wild supposition to argue that there is a significant inconsistency in moderation on redszone such that some users are unfairly moderated while other individuals are given much greater latitude.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Hmm, I have been kicking this around a bit as I read it and have an opinion so I'll run it up the flag pole...
About content - It's RZ's stated vision to be a family friendly site that includes minors both male and female and adult women. Now if your buddy said something provocative about the opposite sex in front of your 15 year old daughter you wouldn't take kindly to it and promptly warn him in one way or another. Perhaps less of us wouldn't mind as much if it were our son but I would guess we would still rather our buddy not talk that way in front of impressionable youth. Since none of us (I think) have been women it's also unfair to suppose it's ok to speak that way in front of them as well, just ask them how they feel about it. All in all Boss, Gik and the mods are the landlords and supers of RZ but as tenants we all have a say and a responsibility to each other and most things shouldn't be off limits to discuss in a reasonable manner. But hanging out on the stoop and objectifying women loudly and proudly with my daughter sitting in our 1st floor window isn't one of them. What kind of neighborhood/building do you want to live in?
I should probably add that this opinion comes from a guy who is guilty of objectifying women, cussing like a sailor and all around crude behavior. But I try to watch my tongue around women and children because although I do it I can see why others shouldn't have to listen to it. What Baumer said or HLM21 doesn't bother me on a personal level but I know for a fact that it would bother me if my neice just so happened to be a poster on this site but she isn't much of a baseball fan. My even younger nephew though may be a poster on here one day and i'd prefer he not walk the same path I have I'm not super proud of it but he doesn't need my hangups if it can be helped.
About the mods - Have had warnings, deserved them and beyond that haven't had any problems with any mod or Boss or Gik. I do believe in some degree of latitude with regards to discussion as I have previously mentioned. But it's like carpeting my apartment ultimately that's the landlords say and the super can't give me permission to change it but they can penalize me if I go ahead and do it without permission of the landlord.
