RE: Civility
People bashed randy and he's probably a student who's well connected to players. Hell he might even be a player. And people said maddog, guy who supposedly got banned, was always made fun of and he never attacked anyone. Is that true?

I'm not aware that he ever attacked anyone. People made fun of some of his posts which were off the wall and some very repetitive. Don't know why he got banned though. I never had a major problem with him.

RE: Civility
Being uncivil isnt the only reason to give people a 30 day board vacation. And I think they get a warning first before a suspension. The main job of the moderators should be to try to keep the integrity of the board up. By that I mean to keep the discussions mostly to Huskie football. I dont care if two guys wanna MF each other, but it derails the thread and might even keep casual posters away. As to MD, he wasn't uncivil. And hes not a bad guy, but he lives to be the counter argument to every single majority opinion. It's a passive aggressive approach to draw out arguments from others. And again, it derails the discussion.

A little of all that is fine. And good for banter. But too much can be a distraction.

RE: Civility
I disagree it probably increases discussion. Did his threads have alot of activity and agruments? I'd guess yes, because you need two sides for a good debate. I'm sure he agreed with some majority on some. Was he anti- Carey? That's a majority debate.

It had a lot of comments, yes. But it was usually same 3 people and MD repeating the same argument 30 times in a row.

There's a fine line between a good debate or even heated discussion as opposed to just a cluster fudge of "youre an idiot". When one poster is almost always the guy involved in that cluster, he's manipulating the thread. Spread those same discussions out over 10 different posters and its normal board stuff.

Its an open forum and people should be able to speak their minds freely. Its hard to say what anyone posters intentions are, but the mods have to use their best guess at what's best for the board.

Got ya. I wasn't there. I'll defer to the veterans. If that is reason I still think he shouldn't be banned.

But why was board better years ago? More heated debates or just because team was better?

Mostly just because the team was better and people were happier. People are just edgier these days with turmoil the team has faced. The board is fine and its great to get new posters and new blood involved. 99.9% everyone is pretty cool.

As time has gone on - in social media as well - people hide behind the anonymity of a place like this and really can tend to be downright rude & say things they would never say to a person's face. We as a society are losing our humanity...our compassion for others ..and I think that's sad.

One reason I have stayed away from this board more & more has been due to how nasty some folks have gotten with others. If that is being watched more carefully I applaud the mods.

MD wasn't a part of that problem though. In fact, he was a victim of it.
