gotta tell ya, i'll eliminate the vitriol on a personal level if any of the righties here ever do... but it's time that the stated forum rules become enforced, else they mean nothing...
just my two cents: but, you have the power to hand down 12-, 24-, 48-hour, week-, month-long suspensions, no? assign an active righty moderator as well if people are concerned about mod bias... someone like RW, while sometimes low brow, seems level-headed enough to balance things out...
this forum badly needs a cleansing, as derrogatory comments about sexuality, manhood, family members, racism and religious zealotry are rampant and blatant violations of the stated rules here... locking down a thread does nothing... giving people some time off, that gets their attention...
just a thought... not a demand...
In other words "Liberals Only"

NEMster, I have it on very good authority that the nether gloom is very cold, dark, dank, smells like a 10-year old cess pool that's never been cleaned, and it has a lot of whatever kinds of creatures one dreads the most (spiders, snakes, rabid orangutans, etc.).
The burning heat part actually sounds quite inviting after living for six months in sub-artic climes!!!

I have overstepped my boundaries on several occasions and just have a couple of days of well deserved rest, but still cannot understand how a poster who tells me to eat shyte and die and makes physical threats on at least 3 separate occasions has not enjoyed the same luxury..time to share the wealth.

That's because we have a conservative moderator who hands out punishment only to posters he doesn't like, and says things like this when there was no insult, or there are new criteria for insults that only apply to left-leaning posters, and not the Bush Leaguer who initiated it:
You have received an infraction at New England Patriots Forums - PatsFans.com Fan Messageboard.
Reason: Insulted Other Member(s)
So I'm just going to give you an infraction everytime you do it, until after twenty you are barred for life.
No where in the "No End In Sight" post he's so boiled about was there a personal attack or name calling.
So, quite clearly, we have the agenda written out. I have little to no doubt there was no reprimand against Fog for calling me a "TROLL."
