By the way, Lavin really was on Sports Pulse last night. That much is fact.

And the fact is you can still talk smack with incoming trolls as much as you ever did.

That hasn't changed.

Why don't we just start a thread and let all the members say how they feel about the new rules? If there really has been as many complaints as the mods say there is, then let's get it out in the open and resolve the matter. If the majority of the members like the new rules so be it. I can stomach that. But I have to admit that I tend to agree with Spinal Tap, that just because James Lavin complained that all the sudden nobody else matters, because we aren't well known authors. Or at least we didn't log on here using our real identities.

We've made a LOT of concessions and put up with a LOT of aggravation over making sure that you (and a lot of others) had an outlet for your venom. It just didn't work.

Bottom line is too many members don't want to be around when there is all that venom. You can assume that is BS if you want, but it isn't.

The mods have had a lot of discussion over this and we either do something about it or let everybody run amok and have this place turn into a flame festival.

We decided that enough was enough and told you what the deal was and you made your decision.

Maybe you need a better outlet.

I'm sorry about this, but you can't seem to listen to reason or comply with a few simple rules.

So, you decided to make an example out of me? I see where you are coming from Hawg.

Don't give me that **** about how I did it to myself. I doubt that I have been pointed out as one of those that other posters don't want around.....except of course if they where a Colts fan.

I wouldn't characterize Patriots Planet as an "outlet" for my "venom". It's more like an internet message board that's main purpose is to provide a platform for Patriots fans to talk about their favorite teams.

I don't log on every day to see who I can piss off today, or who I can call names, or who I can make fun of without them knowing who I am or what I'm all about. I log on to read what is going on, to participate in a few select threads, to see the new additions to the Girlie Pic thread (which I'll miss the most), and to get into an occasional pissing match with fans of opposing teams. Is that wrong???

I'll say one last thing (for now). This board has grown quite a bit over the last year or so. In some ways that has been a good thing. For those who run the board, it's been great. But now, I'm sure a lot of those "newbies" are the ones who feel entitled and are complaining about all the "venom". The growth of the board has contributed, in my opinion, has made it less fun.

This is not an issue that needs to be put to a poll. To be honest, I think the five of us represent a pretty good cross section of the membership. We all have different tolerance levels of smack, there are times when we all like or dislike a member, and there are plenty of times when we disagree on members.

We would not have made any changes unless all five of us agreed to it.

Whether anyone wants to believe it or not, we have lost contributing members because of the flaming tone of the main board. Yhey haven't made any grand announcements, they've just quietly gone away.

We had gotten to a point where any thread at any time could erupt in a flame fest if some members read a post from some other members. Personal animosities were killing alot of enjoyment for alot of people.

All we're asking for is common sense and some simple civility. Responses can be made without resorting to f-bombs and personal attacks.

If you think dealing with this kind of crud that has come with the board growing in size is 'great', Annihilus would hate to see how you define something that sucks.

And it's not the noobs that are bothered by the venom: quite the opposite.....about as opposite as you can get. It's the vets that are bothered by it.

You would rather have a board with 10 members??? Give me a break Anni. You're just making an example out of me because of my jaded past. I consider myself a "vet", and am not bothered by the "venom". In fact, I'm not sure what "venom" means.
