    Default Bullying/harassment

    All,

    It has come to my attention that since the retiring of some of our moderator staff we have been letting too much go, especially where it comes to gender harrassment and bullying of others.

    After some discussions with moderators and others I completely agree.

    In order to fix it I ask, first and foremost, that we knock the bullshit off. If someone makes it clear the jokes are not appreciated or reciprocated and they just wish to be left alone that should happen.

    Whether we're talking about the few women we have left, the recent stuff about Cousins, P&R beef, etc.

    We aren't a big community as it is and we shouldn't accept this type of treatment of others here and we damn sure shouldn't be OK with members walking away out of frustration.

    We've long given more leeway in the lounge but that wasn't supposed to extend to personal attacks and bullying.

    It's my fault for letting it go as much as it did. My apologies to all involved and we're correcting it.

    I will immediately begin searching for another mod or two, please send me nominations and let me know if you're interested and we will move forward.

    Please, stop harassing people that have made it clear they're not thinking this is fun anymore, we're driving people away.

    Mods should be voted in by the community.

    Choosing someone whos already biased or part of a clique or accused of that is useless no?

    Moderating is a big thankless job too and a lot of work!

    Appreciate this post Dav.

    People have beem crossing lines with regularity.

    Stop it!
    Davii said we are going to lose the few women we have left. Don't chase Mo away and dwindle that down further!
    The Plan at the moment:

    Draft: Trade a 3rd and 6th this year to a team to move up and get a 2nd next year (this will happen).

    Players I want:
    Jake Ferguson (Jake Butt) or Jelani Woods or Jeremy Ruckert or Cade Otten (owen daniels) at TE- All 4th rd or later.
    Troy Anderson LB 3rd/4th rd (yay Timmy!)
    Neil Farrell, JR DL- run stuffer- bye purcell

    Does my dislike of Flacco prevent me from being a mod?

    On a serious note, props Davii! I like this forum, but it has gotten lax, so thanks for making a effort to fix it, I salute you

    With the prevalence of social media many have abandoned this place. I think the forum public here has to be more tolerant of thoughts and views in general. People are too quick to throw venom at the slightest of difference in all kinds of subjects, everyone gets so defensive over... anything... And its all worth... Nothing.

    I'd contend we've lost more good posters to over-moderation and catering to a whiny minority than we have to bullying.

    I think Abe would make a good moderator.

    Im just trying to find out who he is whining about? Is this about Beef getting like 3 days off? If so, pretty weak to get uptight about that.

    We need a “Where Are They Now?” thread so we can keep track of who has left.

    Yes, what we need is to empower more adults to impose superficial subjective judgment on one another.

    That's just the latest - I've been pretty consistent in bitching about the banning of all regulars for like 10 years now... It's just such a wildly silly charade imo for one adult to slap another adult on their wrist in this whole thought policing exercise. I thought we were done with those days when the board changed ownership.

    Why would you think that?

    We've let P&R turn into an absolute shit show not worthy of a look because that's what you all wanted. So now we get to see four posters call each other names.

    So fun.

    This anti-mod thing has been brought up here before and nearly everyone was opposed.

    P&R shows why.
