Mods, the attacks on NY1 by Rogue are pure lies and damaging. If he is going to snitch, then I am going to snitch on him when he takes things too far.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Lies? nysparty 1 has admitted a number of times to calling kids schools to get info on them....Not defending Rogue but just letting you know as an outside observer that nysparty1 is in fact full on nuts. You may want to step back a little on this one Tan...

I'm glad the thread was locked.

I've sent PM's to mods before about this but no answers...
I can't add an avatar. Whenever I click on "change photo" it says the "the requested content cannot be loaded. Please try again later"
So I've done that and a year and a half later I'm still here.
Never really chapped my ass but I saw this thread and figured... hell... why not.
Maybe you should stop trying to use dick pics for your avatar?
That's just not something that moderators can help with. All we can pretty much do is delete threads/posts, ban users, and move threads. Nothing else. You'd actually need to talk to 24/7 support to get an answer (if they responded).
sounds like the image is too large...try a smaller size.
Okay. I get banned for a day after disagreeing with those wishing Le'veon Bell well for leaving early, calling him a "great Spartan," and also those saying leaving early is "good for" our football program. So, per the rule of 247Sports, I send a PM to both the Mod banning me and the primary administrator of this Board pleading my case that the Mod's conduct was, itself, wrongful, arbitrary, reprehensible, and so on. Per the rules of 247Sports, posted at their FAQ page, that's exactly what you're supposed to do:
"Why am I blacklisted/banned?
"If you are blacklisted or banned from a specific site, please contact the moderators or administrators of that specific site via e-mail or private message."
With full knowledge of the rules of this Board, I have a 100% equitable case for wrongful deletion of a post and, therefore, wrongful banning. The Mod was 110% in the wrong deleting my post. There is nothing in the allegedly offending post that would violate any rule of this Board, except I did use the word "'friggen," but there were no pictures of anyone's crotch, at all---male, female, or other. None!
Now, when you are banned, you cannot see any posts. I make this obvious point because the Mod banning me and the "administrator" of this Board never responded to my PM. However, when I'm released from Tailgate Penitentiary, I goes to da scene of my alleged crime to check out the aftermath. I sees some weird stuff posted, but I also see the Mod's after-the-fact post suggesting he read my PM and saying, in effect, he was within his rights to ban me and lamely claiming something about I "slandered" Mr. Bell.
Now, I would like to know from those I PM'd the following:
(a) how does this guy, the Mod, get off just arbitrarily deleting my post simply because he disagrees with my point and for no other reason. That's just wrong. Too much of this crap and this Board is humdrum, at best;
(b) the Mods have to follow the rules, too, and 247Sports says my recourse if I'm banned is to send a PM to the Mod and/or the administrator, which I did, and plead my case. So, how can the Mod or the administrator just not respond at all to my PM?; and
(c) Isn't it stupid, or cowardly, by the Mod to "respond" to my post by posting in the thread, trying rationalize his wrongful deletion of my post, after he has banned me saying I "slandered" the player? Without pointing out the false statement that he thinks is slander and without the ability for anyone else to see if my post was slanderous? I mean, he's the one that slandered me, technically.
The Mod is wholly, completely, utterly and totally wrong in deleting my post and his statement, post-deletion, is a fiction and false rationalization for the wrongful deletion. I believe that if the Mod understood the legal maxim "summon jus suma injuria," we'd all be a lot better off around here.
I await your response.

Are you considering a class-action lawsuit?
I hope you are awarded zilly punitive damages
it is a message board. probably shouldn't get all worked up over being banned for a few days.

Seriously though. Email email@example.com and they will see to it that the moderator's pay is docked accordingly.
Ha, ha, haaaaaa. Me and "all others similarly situated." That would be a lot of folks. Punatives would be order---it was just wrong, Gomer! Plain and simple.
You seriously wrote all that up for a day and a half ban? I saw why you got banned. You deserved it. That post was absolute horse-shit. That you posted it 3-4 times AFTER it got deleted for being a horse-shit post is why you got banned. You were bashing Bell because some people called him a great Spartan and then you wrote 2000 words why you believed that he wasn't a great Spartan. Keep it to yourself if you don't want it deleted.
Now how am I supposed to pay for my summer villa if you take my cheddah?

He's "move post on sight" now. Maybe he'll understand that he should stop posting ridiculously dumb threads, but until then, he's going to be hanging out in Wells purgatory. We're all over that.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Well, that's a bit of the problem. The powers that be hide behind their volunteer status, as if that's a rationalization for lack of judgment. Frankly, those guys should be relieved from this awesome responsibility. It's not for everyone.
For someone I always considered a reasonable person, you obviously don't know what you're talking about here.
First, you simply could not have read my post if you call what I said "absolute horse-shit" and "bashing Bell." You're covering for your fellow Mod, that's pretty obvious. The fact is, Bell isn't a "great Spartan" because he is leaving early and, thereby, screwing the program. But I never diminished his contributions as a football player, as you are suggesting. I clearly stated in the post who is worthy of being "a great Spartan" and why. See link below for Mark Dantonio's statement on it.
I'm happy to PM what I posted to you if you want to see it.
Second, did you see Mark Dantonio's statement about Bell leaving early? I wouldn't exactly call it an endorsement, particularly when you consider he's the head coach and must chose his words carefully. You can see the link, below. I think he would agree with my post.
Third, is it really your position, like those I'm responding to in the post, that these early departures "help" the football program? I'd talk to Coach Dantonio for the answer to that one. It's pretty obvious. Bell, Gholdie, and Sims versus those I cited in the "offending" post as staying all four years to help their programs. Yea, we're getting to the Rose Bowl real fast with "help" like that. We're being "gutted" by people that don't have to leave the program, would benefit from staying, and in at least two of the three cases have reasons to return some loyalty to the coaching staff.
Fourth, just to make it clear as I'm not going to "re-post" the terrible, offensive, post: I made it clear it was Bell's choice and God-love-him for it. But I can comment on the wisdom of the choice and that's what I did.
Finally, I never had a post deleted since the inception of this Board, including all its precursors, so, when the post was initially deleted, I thought it was technical error---not the intentional act of a Mod. DMBSpartan had quoted the post in his post and that was still there. I then reposted it. When I realized the Mod had intentionally delted it, I thought he had "lost his mind," as I said in the thread, and I posted it again thinking he hadn't read it very closely (as in took the word of somebody else about its content). So, I posted it intially, then again thinking it was a technical issue, then again astonished anyone who read the post would delete it. The Mod was flat out wrong.
Because somebody disagrees does not give you equitable license to delete a post. There is plenty of flotsam and jetsom on this Board to keep you busy and allow honest discussion, such as my post.
Dantonio has yet to acknowledge the departures of Sims and Gholston, who according to various reports will follow Bell's lead and declare themselves eligible for the NFL Draft.
I want to see BillOGoods and Blanch in a typing competition....who's with me?
Tisk, tisk, tisk, Rocky. We shouldn't pre-judge any poster, should we? Isn't that taught in Mod school? Please, just read my deleted post before you jump to conclusions. I'm happy to PM it to you.
My post refers to Blanch, not you. We move all his ridiculously dumb threads to Wells.
