    Ok, so Im on the chargers main board. And someone posted a thread called "what happend to the pats?" It's basically a thread designed for their members to create ficticious excuses that the pats fans will come up with after San Diego wins.

    So I posted stating that "all is fair in love and war" and "what would be the excuses if NE wins the game. Made a couple of examples regarding the reffing and something creative about spygate... My posts and subsequent responses to my post were deleted and I was warned by the staff...

    This is the PM string to this point:

    However - this is not your forum. All is "not fair in love and war" on these forums.

    If you post in our General Discussion area, stay on topic and leave the "ook ook" and "poor misunderstood Pat" stuff at home. Doing otherwise can and will be considered trolling.

    Thanks and enjoy your visit.

    I haven't been antagonistic at all on this forum (save for maybe some idiots in the smack shack), and have been pretty respectful. I don't agree with this decision, but as you've stated, this isn't my forum. So you do what you have to.

    No, for the most part you haven't been - and some of your stuff has actually been level-headed and even funny... which is why I gave you a warning about it first

    However, be honest with yourself - you know quite well that "posting the opposing view" when the subject involves the two teams it does is stirring it up and being antagonistic. You can do that within limits in the Smack Shack... but not at all in General Discussions.

    You may not agree with it, but there it is.

    Thanks for your understanding and general civility.

    The censorship is downright ugly on the Chargers board. You're being nice because I know for a fact they don't allow any pats fan to support their team on the main board.

    You also have to be careful in the Smack Shack. Unlike our board, you can't even get carried away with solid smack in there either. What's the sense of even posting on a board where you can't even support your team? They should be welcoming solid football talk and debate in the huge game. Yet all they want to do is talk amongst themselves about how great the Chargers are, block their ears and say "nah, nah, nah....I can't hear you!"

    I haven't had too many problems voicing my opinions there. It was this thread only where any action has ever been taken against me. They've been pretty openminded about what I've had to say, even though many of their fans are completely dellusional (not unlike our boards I guess)

    I haven't been on many other boards... lurked here for a while and been on the raiders board a bit, but, you're right. Opposing fans get axed in a hot minute as soon as they start in with BS banter. A lot of Pat's fans, however come onto the CMB and just pretty much call it like it is. Some people can't handle that... the fact that your posts are getting deleted and then having a "moderator" tell you that your posts aren't all that bad is shyte.

    i dont know about that post but i noticed you calling a fan a moron in another thread, that might get you banned lol :p

    it is a heavily moderated forum, its ran by the NFL and that is the way they want it. sometimes it can be lame i agree but i wouldn't trade it for most of the forums out there that let trolls run around rampant starting pissing wars back and forth.

    Personally I wish this board was quicker to get rid of opposing fans. I don't blame the moderators, I just think there are way too many trolls and it's hard to keep up.

    If opposing fans contribute something, that's cool, but most just troll around and ruin threads. It makes a lot of stuff unreadable. But I think the mods are doing what they can to improve it, so that's good.

    You want to see a bad board... full of threats, profanity and ignorance... go to www.raiderfans.net

    Think those people in the stands that dress up in the Halloween costumes are idiots? wait'll you get a load of the people on that board.

    I called a spade a spade. It's a shame they don't allow it going the other way. I've seen pleanty of charger fans calling pats fans morons... figured it was ok. Oh well.

    It was also in smack shack, and the guy had nothing productive to say... so he got nothing productive in response ;)

    There must be a lot of Patriot fans jumping on the Chargers forum. After reading a few threads I was going to jump in and offer my opinion but didn't even get as far as my user name; up popped a message stating that "Sorry, registration has been disabled by the administrator."

    There are a few other rules including "Fans of the other team are not welcome in our "game day" threads - it's hard enough to keep the peace between the Charger fans during a game. Go away during the game, come back after the game." and "While we expect to have some criticism of the Chargers, we will not tolerate blatant attacks towards these individuals."

    yep its to prevent trolls from signing up, i don't blame any message board admins from doing that. as far as the game day threads go, i don't go anywhere near them myself, fans just complain to no end in them.

    if rival fans did post in them it would make it 100x worse for the moderators. i understand why they do it but it is kind of messed up. they should give them at least one chance to keep it civil, oh well.

    There's no point in rubbing salt in the wound... Knocking them out is salt enough... If NE wins, I'll be at work Friday the 26th in my Jersey with my 3 x 5 foot flag hung up... and I won't say a word... Nothing will need to be said.
