Is that like spooning?

 

 

I've merged some posts and Mrs. Racer is just fine with that, but I start spooning on a message board...... my two typing fingers will never be the same.

My main question builds off of an idea NS posted.

Why does shrader hate this place so much that he comes back to delete his contributions?

He's been a member for a long time and laments the times when the team was actually good and the discussion was very good.

 

He did express at numerous times that he did not like what the board has become, but it is to be expected when the hockey is bad.

To be fair, 10 years ago you could bring up the Sabres at the water cooler or at the bar, and there were a half dozen guys and gals excited to lend their opinion and gab about the game.

 

Nowadays, I wouldn't dare bring up the Sabres as a talking point as it usually just ends up depressing all parties involved in the conversation. Playoff hockey is one of the best experiences there is, but we haven't seen it since Easter against the Flyers a decade ago.

:P  If d4rk ever has a typo, it's probably because he's got his nose buried on this forum during the rare few hours we get together and I just full body slam like a breaching whale into the middle of it all and then lay there on his arms staring at him. He is not fond of this.

There's only 4 banned members in the past 2 years. Only 10 warnings (3 of those to the same person) in the last year. That's hardly heavy handed.


What members were banned? One was Ghost, right? I didn't mind him too much. He made a few solid points on various topics.

I remember Ghost being banned for not being able to stop himself from calling the owner a pedophile enabler *shrugs*

And I remember Yuri being banned for being an utter psycho.

The other 2 I can't remember.

Without revisiting the why's of individual bannings (which I wasn't privy to anyway since I'm not a mod), I suspect that the bannings were more of a case of certain posters continually being "high maintenance" than a case of having no redeeming features whatsoever.

 

I mean, you can tell a member "don't do that" and if they continually keep "doing that" (no matter what "that" is), they're eventually going to be banned.

Didn't Yuri request himself that he be banned?

 

I miss him.  He was crazy but (mostly) in a good way.  He led the Red Invasion when many of us adopted Russian sounding names.  He wrote epic prose to describe exciting plays or to build up coming games.  He definitely left his mark on the forum.

I still cant figure out Trump's russian stance unless he thinks its a hedge against China who he is pissing off right now seemingly purposely. Be careful grabbing the tiger by the tail, the other end has teeth. The rest of his nominations are solidly republican screwups designed to undo most of obama's priorities and damage public schools. Gonna be a long 4 years.

I'm totally in favor of having a place to voice my displeasure with and discuss Donald Trump's continued hiring of cabinet officials to run departments they detest, his disturbing trend to surround himself with "generals" which makes us look more and more like a banana republic, and the similarities to dictators whose name and image are plastered all over the land so that the populace ALWAYS has a sense of your omnipotent presence. 
 
Oops.


Totally agree. Must be those Trump lovers have banned discussion of our fascist-in-chief and his altright appointments. Oh well.

And damage the environment, damage the social security system, damage the medicare system, damage the treasury, damage the intelligence community, damage already fragile relations with key allies, and further damage relations with our foes. I'm sure I left out some other areas of damage he'll be sure to inflict.

And it's distracting from criticizing the Republican president

Interesting. I hang around a lot of die hard hockey people and we talk Sabres a lot, but ya, the casual fans are not paying attention much lately which is understandable

He was one and I believe bio is correct he was a yellow snow eater prior to Fire ... he was banned for eating too much yellow snow and then because he spewed too much fire then came back for 1 post as *I'm back* and then never was heard from again.  Seems that SDS has tightened up the approval process.

 

GoDD and Yuri (who PMed me his intention to go out in a blaze of glory ... *death by moderator* ... which turned out to be his epic schizophrenia thread).  Prior to that he changed his screen name to *I am defecting* and told me he was heading to the HF board.  I never went looking for him.

 

The fourth was using the screen name *sick in Florida* and was banned for taking on SDS once too often in a real bash session about how the board really is brutally managed.

It's almost like his Minister of Propaganda, Steven Joseph Goebbannon, is using deliberate slight of hand to push forth his own narrative while making us forget about what really matters like the fact Donald Trump's Daughter sat in on a conversation with a head a state and then within 24hours got long pending approval for a construction project. But I am just a paranoid liberal.  I should give Trump a chance, after all his picks for almost every cabinet position go against basically everything that I was taught or believe from Bestsy Devos complete lack of ability to lead education into the 21st century to the head of Exxon Mobil who openly admits to knowing Vladimir Putin one of the most vicious dictators of our times. I should just STFU though because I am just whining incessantly about people who not only don't care about America, they literally don't care about people. They care about money.
