Default This is really odd, an SCMB mystery?

I got a bounced e-mail from an SCMB member that includes the contents of the message, as I routinely do. A bounced e-mail means the e-mail never reached the intended person and the server sends it back to me, the admin. No, I don't read PMs except when they bounce and I get the error e-mail, which is no choice of mine.

What puzzled me is the contents of the e-mail; the PM message read:

Happenings at SC


Ok, first we have a new thread by a guy named jamesfeger in the Other Sports Blitz section.

https://www.sports-central.org/commu...472#post264472

He isn’t a new member. Click on his name and you’ll see his last post was 4 years ago before making this new rocball thread a few days ago.

Talk about f’in bizarre. Where the hell did this come from?

Aside from the complete and utter lack of activity in all forums the only other thing to report is an update in catman vs. CK Fresh.

They are really going at it in the political forum but pages 3 and 4 of this thread in particular are simply nuts. Catman claims to have worked some “mind power” over CK and the kid keeps comin’ back for more.

https://www.sports-central.org/commu...t=18727&page=3

The other threads are pretty bad but the weird tone set in that one is just absurd on those two pages.

If this isn’t the bottom then I don’t know what is.

Think I’ll have some fun though and post a few topics in the political forum.

Hey, in the absence of leadership/discipline the subordinates are dangerous when left to their own devices.

Or


When the cat’s away, the mice will play.
What's odd is the member who wrote this has 0 posts and the e-mail stated it was sent from this member to himself. Are there really people thinking this deeply about SCMB matters, yet not contributing? Why care so much if you don't post here? Hmm. I urge this person to come forth from the shadows and be seen.

I was going to post this in the private mod board, but thought it was interesting and suitable for everyone to see. I think you all would appreciate me being transparent. And really, I was interested to see what you all think.

I do want to address this:

Huh? Are you saying this place is not being moderated or out of control? Do you see spam everywhere, flame wars, and chaos? I don't. The mods and myself are around and doing our jobs. Message boards are all about the users, not the mods/admins; we're just here to keep things in line.

Weird...

Marc, any chance it is a former member? That still wouldn't explain why the person sent the PM to him/herself.

It is kind of funny to think that outsiders might actually have "update(s) in catman vs. CK Fresh."

Maybe you can start charging to view our threads marc? Promote it as pay per view, like "Tyson vs. Hollyfield." :lol: I just hope catman doesn't bite my ear off

Alright, but montro has to referee.

This does seem odd. My guess would be a former member. Have any members been banned lately?

Why would you send an email to your self. Does he have split personality because it sounds like he is having a convo with the person he is sending it to about the going ons at SC.

Is there a reason why Marc hasn't released this mysterious poster's name? Or at least how long this person been a member of the site?

Are there any regular members who don't have access to private messaging at SCMB that may have registered under a different user name with the intent of only using that new, unknown user name as a way to send private messages to other regular members? Does that even make sense?

I am only curious because I don't think someone can say "If this isn’t the bottom then I don’t know what is" if they have only been lurking around for a short period of time, and it is obvious from their comments that they were at least attempting to share their thoughts on the site with someone else who, at the very least, knows the various posters and some of the ongoing matters and discussions here.

Maybe he is jamesfeger's alter ego. I noticed jamesfeger only has conversations with himself, as well.

No, we have not had any bannings or temp bannings for several months. We really have not any issues with folks being overly pissy with each other in a long time either.

The only people we have banning and issuing warnings to of late are the run of the mill spammers.

The only thing I can think of is it may have been someone from the deluge of Sportsline migrants who came over and quite a few left in a huff when the political forums got way out of control and we were forced to do some housecleaning a bit rather than be overrun with chaos.

I doubt that. Most of the Sportsline crew still post over at opentalkforum. It's possible, but I doubt it.

But, I think there are still a handful of them that kind of keep tabs here and post once in a blue moon.

You may be right. I don't have any idea who it might be though...
