Hear! Hear! J Galt for president in 2016!OT threads and trolls? Get a grip man. You know what's real bull****: AVATAR CHANGES!!!
This whole damn site is imploding due to the reckless, irresponsible and hedonistic decay of morality when peeps start changing avis all willy nilly!!!
The OT threads are very bothersome especially those of us that have limited connectivity. I think the mods or whoever is in charge should remove them in total not just move them to the correct place. If the poster does not have enough consideration of others then they should be banned.Regarding certain off topic threads, I don't think they should spend that much time policing things that 99% of members aren't bothered with and may actually find interesting.
But to your point about trolls, it's getting pretty bad. There is no ambiguity about who they are or their intentions, and they do nothing but stir up low quality discourse or, worse yet, drag down conversations that had some merit.
Double posting should be a bannable offense, too. Especially since there's a delete function.The OT threads are very bothersome especially those of us that have limited connectivity.

Is this old phart serious??Until 2012, the main board was readable and highly entertaining. Since then, the board has become cluttered with trolls and OT threads. The moderators used to deal with both: Banned trolls and redirected OT threads to the appropriate board. Since membership blew up, there seems to be little desire to address either.
As near as I can tell, the only thing that will get a troll banned is to denigrate forum moderators or site ownership. The only time OT threads get moved is if the mods don't particularly like it, not that it's cluttering up a paid sports forum. If the mods aren't going to enforce it, how about a little courtesy from posters? If you have a topic that doesn't belong here, post it on the appropriate board. I know you want answers about financing your house or selling a car or whether your wife should have bunion surgery, so post it on the appropriate board and you'll eventually get answers. You know I don't give a **** about your personal questions.
About this point, I suspect I'll have half a dozen posters recommending I leave the board. To you: Screw yourselves!
I think about that awesome skit every time I see a Stratus and every time some I hear some dude tell his kids to respect him.Passed one that was jacked up with decals and special colors on the interstate headed out west the other day. That's all I could think about. Just a great skit!
If you're having to tell your kids to respect you, that's the first part of the problem. The second part of the problem might be the Stratus....unless you're debt free, have cash stashed and appreciate the craftsmanship behind maybe the worst decade of American cars made.....then hey, do your thing.I think about that awesome skit every time I see a Stratus and every time some I hear some dude tell his kids to respect him.
