Oh gee, I don't know...I guess you haven't read his posts...or the fact he's been banned before...or the fact that he's not very well liked here in general.

In fact, I am one of the few people who actually likes him...and that's telling you something when I write that to someone I like.

There are plenty of vocal liberals on here (not so much anymore after Trump won...sorry fellas...can't help who the people want as Prez, and that you scurried off to your safe spaces because of it...don't blame me).

Hcap and mostpost have been two of the more vocal and VERY liberal people here. Have I banned them? Have I given them any shit really? Other than arguing with them on political matters, who here can say that I've made their life difficult here AS AN ADMIN because of their political beliefs? In fact, I've defended mostpost more than once when some people got personal with him.

There are plenty of other liberals on here...maddog and Teach come to mind as two that have been posting plenty lately and I haven't said a word.

I don't have a problem with people posting here with views opposite of mine. I welcome it.

As GWB once said...BRING 'EM ON

Just don't be a ****ing asshole (ok, Bush didn't say this last part, that's me)


I have been asked by cj to not try to moderate the board, and I have done well (IMO) to honor that request. Instead of trying to be a voice of reason, I have tried to report posts. Nothing happens. This entire thread has got me to wondering; what is it that gets your attention versus what you let pass? If you look at posts 63 and 64 of this same thread, maddog and justralph call each other names. Is that okay for them to do? If so, how is dahoss crossing the line? There is a lot of vitriol spewed on this site. Ultimately, that is the responsibility of those who make those types of posts, but it seems like some stuff is okay and some stuff isn't. Now I see that you are actually frustrated and are now hurling a lot of insults. Is this how you want to represent yourself on your own site? This is a great site for the most part, but Off Topic has really become a cesspool. Is it time to take control of the board back and enact some standards of behavior that are then enforced?

Just wondering. I really used to enjoy posting here which is how I racked up my 2,938 posts over several years. Now I am not so sure...

Of course I have seen the posts. I don't know dahoss. I don't have a problem with dahoss like so many seem to. Others have been banned and been allowed to come back (not suggesting that anybody be banned). My point is that I see lots of posts that, in my opinion, are much less than civil, but it is only certain people that are called on it.

I really am not trying to be critical of you; you have your hands full here. I was just really wondering. dahoss says that you have edited his posts and taken away his ability to send PMs. I have never heard of that happening to others, but perhaps they are less vocal when/if it happens.

P.S. - Glad to hear that you don't read PMs. It would not affect me if you did as I never receive any.

All of your reported posts are looked over, I can tell you that. I get an email every time a post is reported. You claiming nothing ever happens is patently untrue. Maybe not for the ones you reported, for whatever reason, but I look at all reported posts and take action when required (in my opinion).

As for all your other complaints, duly noted.

I can't please everyone...I learned that a long time ago. It's a total waste of time.

So, I just run this place the way I've been running it for 17+ years and let the chips fall where they may.

If someone else wants to go out and create a free forum for horseplayers, be my guest. Others have tried, but PaceAdvantage.com is still the top link on google when it comes to horse racing talk/forum/forums whatever.

So I must be doing something right.

Dahoss' personal attack on Tom is one of the two most vicious I have ever witnessed on here. The other was the attack on mostpost a few years ago, and I stepped in and defended him when that happened, and I think you would say that mostpost and I do NOT see eye to eye on off-topic.

I'm sorry you don't see things my way, but what Dahoss did was inexcusable, no matter how many celebrities or politicians that Tom has insulted in his time here.

Insulting public figures is NOT the same as insulting a fellow board member in a highly personal and vicious manner...and might I add, Tom did not provoke Dahoss initially or say anything to him that would justify Dahoss' initial salvos.

I'm not sure that there were all that many complaints, but I do appreciate the response. I just thought I would ask what I believe to be a fair question, that's all. Although it was done in the context of what has happened in this thread, it could have been many threads that prompted the inquiry.

I am in no way condoning any personal attacks. I will also be the first to admit that I have not been perfect in this regard in my 13+ years as a member of this board. I am also not saying that you doing everything wrong. I was simply trying to get a better understanding. Personally, I think your response is pretty strong, but I can understand that my question probably put you on the defensive.

I've been getting questioned a lot lately...

People think I favor Tom because he's conservative...people think I favor Dahoss because he hates EMD...people think I hate Dahoss because he reveals a huge "secret" that I can read private messages if I want to (NEWS FLASH, I've posted on this board multiple times that as owner, operator and possessor of the database, of course I have the ability to read private messages if I want to go through the trouble of doing that...it's not all that easy as opening a thread, but I would think a halfway intelligent person would assume I have access to private messages since this is my website)...

In short, there has been a lot of questioning of me lately, and it's getting a bit ponderous...sorry if I came off a little over the top.

I do the best I can...I try and remain consistent...am I perfect? Hell no. Are there some good months, bad months...good years, bad years around here? Hell yes...

As they say in NY, it is what it is...

They actually say that everywhere, but it probably started in NY. Same deal with the "the bottom line." I appreciate the response and am finished with this line of questioning.
