Yes, it would be rude, and hypocritical. Above the fray, above the fray. You (by being mean when we don't put up with it) and Lee (by citing four violations when only two can reasonably said to apply to his post), are giving Poptart PLENTY of ammo for both his whininess and his paranoia.

Ellis, i came here to get away from a sports board that turned to absolute chaos. It started out great. We were pretty tight knit, but soon a couple of guys came in, and suddenly, it was nothing but flame wars. I saw attacks on people's wives and children. Every time a new thread was started, someone that had a vendetta against the person who started it would ruin it by flaming. That's why i left. I get emails all the time by people i consider friends, wanting me to come back. But I have no desire to be a part of something like that. Its childish and unnecesary

Sorry. No battles. Just a clarification that I didn't care to have out in the open is all.

I think, most of the time, Kevin and I are okay. He has some jealousy of me that he keeps pent up most of the time, but it's all good. One day, he'll have his moderating praises sung by others. One day...

Personal attacks and racial attacks should not be allowed, but verbal fights should be allowed, as long as there is nothing below the belt.

Seems like every time there is going to be some people ripping each other apart the thread gets shut down.

Perhaps you should just go away. It's pretty clear you're not happy here anymore. There's no need for you to hang around if you're unhappy. There's no membership fee you'd be squandering, no marriage vow you'd be violating, no hearts you'd be breaking.
Let's be honest here. There are plenty of people, including most, if not all of the mods, who really dislike Poptart. Whether it's because of his outspoken beliefs or political views, or because of the way he presents those views, he has rubbed wrong just about all of the regulars on this board, at some point or another.

I didn't see the post everyone's talking about, so I have no idea whether or not it was appropriate. I do however, trust that it was taken down for legitimate reasons; and to be honest, I don't even need a reason, it's none of my business. This isn't my board and both Marc and the moderators have every right to stop or remove posts they don't believe fall in line with the guidelines of the board. However, I think it would be a real shame if it was a borderline call and the decision was based on personal feelings about 'Tart, not about what is best for the board.

This is a very intelligent, very well-spoken (er, written) board and to open it up for "verbal fights" would take away from a lot of the thought-provoking discussion that the board provides. However, this place, as interesting as it is, would be much more dull without a guy like Poptart posting on it. Verbal attacks and personal insults do not have to be tolerated, but I see little harm in allowing a colorful point of view, even if it's a point of view most people don't agree with.
