Re: The "Controversy" thread: why was it closed?
That thread was great!
I think the application of that rule to this thread is over-reaching and I hope you will reconsider.
Now all the locker room threads are going to be disallowed? That is very sad.
More disturbing, it sounds like we are being censored: we can only say happy shiny things about players now?
If you stand by that decision, will you please now start locking every thread with an insult to a player? Don't single that one thread out only.
Reading over the rule again, how does it even apply? Is it the "hateful" bit?
will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.
The thread was not: obscene, sexually-oriented, threatening, or violative of any laws.
Was it singled out as vulgar? Hateful?
I know nobody has to answer this and mods can just say "we make the decisions and you like it or leave it", but if possible could someone say if this was considered vulgar, hateful, or other and then we set a standard that the level of those qualities in this thread is unacceptable. All future postings must be less vulgar and/or less hateful. Then we will know.
