So long guys.

I\'ve had my own run-in with a moderator, JOESAM specifically, on a subject not necessarily related to football and I took him to be a fair individual who, while not in agreement with me, was willing to at least entertain my position. I really didn\'t expect much more from a private website nor should I have.


If this guy wants to leave, let him. But this final \"sayonara, fall on his sword, fade into the sunset\" post is a bit self-serving. This is a football website, not a soap opera.

So long guys.

And this is here in the general football forum because...?

from the forum rules...

Talk about Football: People are not interested in your likes or dislikes of other members or other ridiculous subjects not pertaining to football or the Saints. Topics not pertaining to the Saints or football should be address in the Everything Else forum.

Hi folks. I\'m not going to drag this out and make a long post. First, I\'d like to say I think this is a great site and I\'ve enjoyed it very much. And let me also add that I think Halo and JoeSam are very fair with everyone.

This board has changed quite a bit since I first joined. It much better now, IMO. But it has changed ....

And I don\'t believe I really fit in anymore. (I need a hug - )

I suppose I\'m one of those folks who loves to go against conventinal thinking. And I\'m also one of those folks who never met a good argument that he didn\'t like.

Lately, instead of adding to the board, I think I\'ve made it worse.

Frustration I suppose.

But, I made a promise to Halo and JoeSam when they allowed me to come back.

It\'s been brought to my attention that I\'ve been rocking the boat a little too much lately. And I probably have.

However, I can\'t see myself ever changing. That\'s about the best behavior you\'re ever going to get out of me ...

So long, guys ....

So long guys.

How did I become the poster child for A) all moderators, and B) unbridled aggression and unfair treatment?

So long guys.

Hey, I don\'t own or run this site. Halo and JoeSam must do what they think is best.

I just don\'t agree with everything that\'s going on.

On occassion - I do break some rules. And so does everyone at B&G. Quick, if you haven\'t broken any rules ... Raise you hand???

What I don\'t do, though, is run around making personal attacks.

Anyone been insulted by me? NO?

Anyone offended by any of my remarks? NO?

Do I argue with someone\'s opinion? YEP! Do I put up strong arguements? YEP!!

Do I make extreme statements when I feel they are necessary? YEP!

I dish out no more than I receive. Actually, I dish out much less than I receive.

And I\'m the antagonist?

I\'m tired of having to watch EVERY word I post.

All I want to do is express my opinions and question other folks opinions. And I want to do it respectfully. IMHO, I\'ve done just that.

Also, I don\'t want to be a robot. I want to have a little bit of fun. But not at the exprense of others. I wish no one any harm.

Sometimes I get the feeling that I\'m the bad guy.

I don\'t know how I became the bad guy.

I really think that someone needs to review HOW the rules are enforced. Either enforce the rules all the time or don\'t enforce them at all.

There are mixed signals being sent out. Even a blind man can see that.

All I\'ve tried to do is help.

If this doesn\'t get me banned, I\'ll be back. One day.

But, until that day, I hope the problems get worked out here at B&G. There\'s been nothing but problems lately. Or way too many anyway.

I\'m speaking out not because I\'m mad at Halo or JoeSam. They really haven\'t said that much to me. I just want to be heard. Whether I\'m wrong or right.

So long guys.

the people here, not the mods..just the people..make this a decent place to hang out...
...then two posts later...

When I said Mods..I meant WHODAT
So why didn\'t you just say WhoDat? Oh, so you could directly tie it to how this site\'s managed? Let me guess, college student that\'s taken too many poly sci classes and feels he stands for truth, justice, and the American way?
I did enjoy reading your posts at one time, but this \"victim\" stance you\'ve taken is lame, especially when you generalize all the mods to try to drive home a point.
Was that the best you and the thousands that originally left the site because of your pm\'s, asking people to leave with you, could come up with?
