    1. Ignoring a moderator directive is a bannable offense.

    2. SoCal wasn't the moderator who banned him.

        You are funny girl.

        An over reach in power is just that and people that use that power

        just cause they can are the problem, not people like guy who could

        very well be correct considering the situation.

        At my age I have seen a few mods who abuse their power and this

        is one of those cases.


        To let those Chief fans stir the chit and then jump all over this guy

        when you have no evidence he is not correct ?


        Wrong is wrong and I don't give a **** who thinks otherwise.

        Thus whole situation sounds personal.........which would be another

        reason not to ban the guy.


        Changing the name someone else's thread is BS...........especially

        without knowing whom is correct.

        Whatever...............

              This is the portion of the Forum Guidelines that comes into play when one posts rumor as if it were fact:

              "False news – Posting fake news is strictly prohibited. Few things will get you banned quicker than posting a fake story during a sensitive news period."

              When a poster fails to specifically state that a "news story" is unsubstantiated and/or pure rumor, then the moderator who changes the thread title in order to clarify -- is doing him a favor. It's that or by rule, the poster will be banned for posting fake news.

              As for Chefs fans -- forum rules have been applied and at least a half dozen have been dealt with.

              It's clear that you disagree with the decision but the Forum Guidelines were followed to the letter.

                IMO, the bannable offense was starting the second thread. That was stupid.

                That said, there was recently a thread on ChefsPlanet, basically mocking us for all the banning we do. And to be honest, I agreed with most of what they said. TJ could confirm this with actual numbers, but it seems to me we have far less volume of posts than we've had in the past. Obviously, it isn't JUST banning people that has led to that. But that is part of it.

                For example, banning trolls, IMO, is a really bad idea. TJ used to generally be against that, and he was right. Banning people for disagreeable, and even deliberately inflammatory posts is a slippery slope.

                I also think season and offseason mode should not exist. Sure, it can be frustrating to see non-Bronco posts in the main forum. But this is a community. We are here for the Broncos; but we're also here because we've made relationships with each other. Other things come up. There are other sub-forums for that, of course. And a very small minority of the membership here (myself included) ever really visits them.

                Honestly, I see CP as something of a model for moderating a board like this. I hate the Chiefs more than I hate any team in any sport. But for the most part, I like the people that post at CP. This board used to be more like that one - more "wild west," and less "pre WWII era Germany."

                If anyone actually sees this, I'm sure I'll take some crap for it. Whatever. It's just my opinion. And if you think about it, I don't think I complain much. So, it's about as constructive as it gets.

                  You're such a bully, give someone a ban hammer and they think they are jesus.

                    So in conclusion, Chefs fans mock us for applying the posted forum guidelines -- and this after most of them were directed to the "Forum Guidelines" thread and warned that substance-less, pure trolling isn't going to be tolerated. And some Broncos fans (apparently including you) agree.

                    On the other hand, some Broncos fans here (see Jetmeck's post above) don't think we take enough action; they believe that Chefs trolls are running amok here, totally unrestrained.

                    It's a case of damned if you do and damned if you don't for the moderator team. SMH.

                    We're not going to ignore the rules for the sake of the entertainment of a few Johnny-come-lately rival trolls. Sorry, but forum rules that apply to everyone else -- have to apply to them too.

                      Blueflame does love to indiscriminately apply rules.

                          I knew you'd get defensive.

                          Look, at some point, you take a step back, and you look at the bigger picture. Is the board getting better? Is it staying even? Is it getting worse? My perception is that it's getting worse. I don't have the numbers to back that. It's just my perception. And with the way the Broncos popularity has exploded, plus the way the Internet has changed since the board's inception - this place should be more popular than ever! Yet, I would bet the numbers are way off, from the board's best days. Sure, we probably have more members than ever. What about total posts per day? Or new threads per day?

                          So, if my perception is right, then you do this place a disservice by saying, "We're just following the rules!" Because apparently, something with "the rules" isn't working!

                          And let's say you really are just following the rules. The person who started the thread at CP is Rausch. Rausch has been around here for a long time. Go read that thread. In it, he is almost entirely complimentary about the Mane. It's more that he feels incredulous to the fact that he was banned here! Sure, he was talking a little trash when he got banned. But he's been a good rival fan here for a long time. Are we really going to get rid of every non-Bronco fan that pokes a little fun our way? Really? This will become a pretty lonely place! And the practice of doing it shows us to have an embarrassingly-thin skin.

                          I can show you time after time when TJ didn't cower to demands to ban Bob. He used basically the same argument that I just used in the last four sentences in the last paragraph. And this was freaking Bob!

                          So, bury your head in the sand all you want - only coming up for air long enough to slap the other tight-sphinctered mods a high-five for your blind "following the rules" approach. In the process, you will be unwittingly killing the board you profess to love.

                          (For the record, not all of the mods have tight sphincters. But the few of you who do are unsurprisingly the ones who wield the most influence around here. TJ has "grown up" in his real life since he started this, and with a career, a marriage, and children, he understandably doesn't have as much time and energy to run it now. For whatever reason, the place seems to have strayed from his original vision. As mods, maybe you guys should spend some time thinking about where we've strayed.)

                            After that last fiasco where the guy was banned for accidentally insulting somebody's avatar which, unbeknownst to him, turned out to allegedly be the guy's dead wife, I wouldn't hope for anything from Blueflame.

                            She has neither opinions nor concerns as to what she does and how she does it, apparently.

                              You found that "defensive"? I flat-out don't care if rival fans who only registered here to disrupt the forum -- and will leave once their team is no longer undefeated -- think that they should receive preferential treatment here and whine on their home forum when they don't (not referring to Rausch here; it's the pure trolls like "PeterNorth" who have brought about intolerance for Chiefs fans here and that isn't on the moderator team) .

                              The bigger picture? The Mane is what it is. I like Rausch -- but don't disagree with a brief vacation for the remarks he made in last week's gameday thread. His posting privileges will be reinstated soon (haven't checked to see just when, but the vacation was not a lengthy one). Life goes on.
