    Default ****The Official Spurs Down Thread****

    If I ban a regular poster from this day forward, I will post exactly why I banned said poster and may even screenshot the post or posts that lead to the banning.


    Have a good day.

    I don't worry about falling skies as much as I worry about low ceilings.

    You should change the name to the ego-stroke thread

    Everyone lies about why they were banned or who banned them.

    I intend to clearly let you and everyone else know why it happened.

    I donít ban people for ďno reason.Ē

    In the past I figured that it did not matter that only the banned poster received the email and infraction notice. However these same people will run the sites name through the mud and claim vindictiveness or some type of unfairness.

    Ok, now everyone will have access to the receipts.

    This assumes i donít get lazy admittedly but here we are.

    I guess that makes more sense than my first impression. I will say I have seen some of both though

    Have a good day.
    I like it. While CT was on hiatus, I noticed several unfavorable comments about CT elsewhere. Seems they thought every thread should be a vent thread. They seemed to not realize that CT is not a pay site, and that we are all guests in someone else's domain.

    I like it too. Many times I miss out on the popcorn entertainment that inevitably leads to a ban. Sometimes the story comes out after the fact, and sometimes it doesn't. In any case, during the down time, I too read some unbelievable tales regarding how or why a user was banned.

    Things like "I got banned for writing about a team we were about to play." or "I got banned for accidentally posting in the wrong forum once." or my favorite "I got banned for saying our defensive coaches need to do a better job." are some of the ones I've seen in the past couple of weeks.

    I've been around this board since the beginning, although I didn't start posting regularly until around 2007. I remember the post on GamecockNation linking to this board when it was first created. In that time, I've seen a lot of stuff happen on here and a lot of people come and go. (For better or for worse.) I cannot say with any honesty that I have ever seen anyone banned without there being a good reason. If anything I've seen more that probably should have been banned but weren't. But it's not my board, and it's not my decision.

    I have moderated forums in the past, and I can tell ya that there's a lot of stuff that goes on and is discussed behind the scenes. Assuming this site is like those, it is rare that one single moderator decides to buck the majority and go around kicking people for the hell of it. I know it's a thankless job in the best of situations, but somebody has to keep the place up to snuff.

    I'm not a fan of this sort of naming & shaming that is prohibited on most boards that I am on.

    Mr. House

    I hope you don't mind if I post bans along with the post / thread that got the Bannee
    banned as well ? I like this idea. It holds us (the mods) as well as the poster's accountable.

    I am fine with it.


    I understand the worries of people who see this as a bat flip thread. I will fight that happening.


    Sometimes people disappear around here and now everyone will know the reason the ban was put in place.


    There are at least two sides to every story.




    Another thing I promise everyone on cockytalk is during football season, I will give a little more leeway than I do any other time of the year because emotions and (sometimes) drinking gets the best of some of us. That is referencing the Mods and the game thread posters. What that looks like? It will hopefully be reasonable.
