To be honest, I have gotten the exact opposite impression about other teams boards. I feel our mods are the most liberal when it comes to smack talk. I've been banned from sites for just posting "Ha Ha"....... Baldy got banned because he violated numerous POSTED rules of the message board......and he did it SEVERAL times in SEVERAL posts.

Make no mistake. Many people were given repeated warnings, both directly, and in pinned threads. When someone comes in here acting like a complete tool from the get go, and with no regard for the rules(which they agreed to abide by when they registered), they don't deserve a warning, and will not get one. This is the problem we frequently encounter with opposing fans. They don't understand that we can't allow disgusting, profane content. Its a football message board, where football is the focus. If someone wants non-stop personal attack trash talk, there are plenty of other options. Google is a good place to start the search. I've never been to the Eagles' board, nor do I want to go there, but from what I've heard, it sounds like their fans are running the show, which speaks volumes about the kind of content they must be allowing.
The Giants' Front Office wants the board to be suitable for all audiences. They own them, they paid for them, and they entrust us to keep things in check. The forum description clearly states FOOTBALL SMACK, and anyone who can't respect that doesn't need to be here. Not every opposing fan who was banned was hit without warning. I've banned a grand total of 4 people since I've been here, and 2 of them were Giants fans who were warned at least half a dozen times for bad behavior. For some people, warnings are just a speed bump that only slow them down temporarily, and they get right back up to speed when they return. In that case, our hands are tied, and they're eventually gone for good.
I told him that was a suicide run....I don't want to use him as an example by any stretch.
