If someone on the Bruins board calls Komisarek a wuss who never fights and I reply by posting a Komisarek fight-log... does that make me guilty of "cheering against" the bruins? (actually happened).

So are you saying that members are not allowed to post on other teams boards at any time? even if we're being respectful? I'd love to see more consistantcy throughout all the boards on this site.

They have been updated. That's why about a month ago every poster had to once again agree to them in order to post. So there would be zero confusion.
Since you are posting...you agreed to them about a month or so ago. I'm sure you read the fine print first.



What I said is what I said. Posting can be dome without taking shots at each other and being mindful of where one is.

What if there are people on the other boards that weren't aware that Gorges was captain in Kelowna? Are you saying we can't enlighten them?

Of course you could, it's just how you say it.

If you post, "Typical 'team x' fan, no clue about anything. Gorges was the captain in Kelowna, don't post about something you know nothing about. Enjoy the golf course." ...well, expect to hear from someone.

If you post, "You may not be aware, but actually Gorges was the captain down in Kelowna. He was a big part of their leadership down there." .. then you're adding respectfully to a conversation.

It's all in how you approach being on another teams board.

There is no last series. We have always hated the Flyers. The Flyers have always been our enemy and will always be our enemy.

Ahhh, guess I missed that. I probably figured it was a security check and skipped it. I'll get right on reading that,

And I agree with you, posting without taking-shots at each other is perfectly fine. I agree 100%

The only problem is... I've seen many fans get warned/banned for doing this EXACT thing (posting without taking-shots) (dont ask me to produce links to posts, my memory isnt that good). I've heard stories and seen posters be warned/banned simply because a moderator wanted them to "go back to their own board". Like I said, some more consistantcy would be nice... Do the moderators have to answer to anyone when they screw up? Is anyone monitoring the moderators? Is there a system to report bad moderating?

Listen, I'm not trying to give you any grief. Hfboards is a big place, its alot of work. I just want the quality of discussion to be the highest it can be.

Play friendly to Habfan4. Gain his confidence. I think he may not be fully on board.

Habfan is a Hab Fan, so he is on board. And he hates the Flyers, and has always hated the Flyers.

Yes they do. And if we (Site Admins) find that a Mod is not making the right calls, said Mod is removed. It does happen. To report any Mod issue hit the *contact us* icon.

No different than some posters that simply don't get it get for whatever reason.
The fact that you as well as others that have been here since 2002 must have a clue otherwise you wouldn't be here.

I will say as we grow the job does become more challenging. In regard to quality control in all aspects. I view my job as trying to weed out the bad apples for the overall good of the rest. When provoked I weed hard.

I also think we should have fun. I like a good laugh more than anything. I think we also can do that.
Lastly, there are some on the Habs board that would be welcome at my door anyday. They know who they are. There are some on the Bruins board that would not. I judge a man by the depth of his character and not the colors of his team.

I think he should come in to the Miniluv to show the Ministry how he has always hated the Flyers. He might be an inspiration to other flag waiving Flyer hating Hab fans out there.

Go Habs Go.

Some day, the Sons of Hab fans and the sons of Bruins fan will eat together at the table of forgiveness.

Okay, thanks, good to know they are being watched like everyone else . I doubt I'll be using the "contact us" much though, I usually give people the benefit of the doubt if I think they've made a mistake, or a second chance. It would have to be something very blatant for me to report them about. Plus its hard to keep track of all the thousands of posts on every forum (dont need to tell you)

Thanks for all the answers.

If my son finds the Quebec girl he met last summer at Old Orchard again this year....that day may be sooner than we think.

Sure. But in absolute Montreal tradition, we'll probably just dump the beer on your head before setting your car on fire with a blowtorch.




*Seriously though, if you're in Montreal, give mcphee and I a 48 hour notice and we'll make sure to buy you a round or six.

I enjoy other teams forums way too much to stay away from them.

Variety...I like to read both sides.

I'll take your laughter as an insult. Both mcphee and I are pretty solid stout men. We can hold off hooligans, ruffians, thugs, roughnecks, zoot suits and other assorted riff raff.
