gotta love dumb people who think that Jerry Palm is one of the best in the bracketology business. He's one of the 20 worst in the last 3 years....

just fyi, there's censorship over on the other site again by Jet. He completely refuses to approve anything I post. Thought this was America. What a total joke.

Bro, I have a day job. I don't have time to approve all your posts! Other moderators can approve your posts as well, not just me........

of course it's a joke that a message board has a poster moderated just because you don't like their point of view. This is America, not Commie Russia.

Just passing through but just to note freedom of speech deals with the government not internet message boards.

you are posting in the same threads that I am posting in. How do you have time for that?

I tried to explain a couple of things the other day, besides the fact that I think all of us work 9 to 5 plus have families and responsibilities.

- Last Friday evening was the beginning of a 3-day weekend. You can't be guaranteed that any of the 4 moderators will log onto HLoH at that time.

- Also, 96% of the time I'm logging on using my old Droid. To approve a post, I have to:
(1) click on the icon that has a triangle with exclamation point (5 seconds to open).
(2) open up your message (5 seconds to open).
(3) read your message (10 seconds to read).
(4) click on the approve button (5 seconds to open).
(5) click off the notify poster button (3 seconds to uncheck).
(6) click on the "Yes" button when it says "do you really want to approve this message" (5 seconds to open).
(7) complete (0 seconds).

And those are minimum times. Unless I upgrade my Droid, which I don't want to do if it's just for speeding up approvals.

So, that's 33 seconds... per message... sometimes there are 8 to 10 message from you in the queue, plus 1 or 2 random Dayton guys... holy crap, for 10 messages it takes over 5 minutes, and this is almost every time I log on over there, 10 messages in the queue... sometimes I just want to surf the HLoH for a minute, get the headlines, maybe click on one thread, scan for a minute, then leave... sometimes I don't feel like losing 5 minutes of my lunch break to approve a dozen messages.

I would recommend posting once an hour at most. Take all the points that you want to make, and put it in one longer message. If you're having a rapid fire back and forth conversation, then PM the other poster.

Or better yet, post less in general, gather your thoughts, and start a daily thread over there ("Stever's Cup of Joe" or "Even Stever" or something... I'll even let you steal those name ideas from me). Have 12 bullet points, post the thread as 1 item, then sit back for 6 hours. Return to read any responses, compile a list of more bullet points, and submit 1 larger response.

As far as Palm, etc, I could give two farts about any of those brackets guys. Like I said in the past, I get more accuracy from my barber Frankie in Pawtucket.

I'd understand that billyjack if Jet wasn't posting in the same thread that I posted in myself multiple times.

Also billyjack- several times folks ask me a question in a thread. Why shouldn't I be allowed to post there?

And your 10 posts per day thing- that's crazy. Several folks post more than 10x a day.

RE: Big East message board
a user gets set to "moderated" by the mods or admin

when you look at stever's profile there, he bleongs to the "moderated" group while someone else would be "registered"

every post he makes goes into a queue until a moderator or admin approves it

RE: Big East message board
to me someone should only go moderated if they go off the deep end a la the ball the last week or so. Outside of that- really it's a sports message board. you and I could have completely different ideas on things. but I know I've learned a whole hell of a lot reading everyone elses points quite frankly. Don't agree with all of it- but you know what- that's ok.
