    step right up folks, and place your vote! should the mods be more aggressive in their editing/pruning of superfluous threads in OT? should every little snipet of teenybopper horsemanure be shoveled away? should all thread-related/post-related/"i wanna be a mod3r4t0r cuz th3y'r3 l33t!"-related threads be gone?

    or not? that's the options. place your vote.
     
  2. Yeah. At this rate this place is slowly turning into a tabcrawler part 2.

    I vote for stronger rules.;)

    aggressive like Mr. T, or aggressive like a pit bull ?

    either would be fun to watch ;)

    but really, deleting all of the teenybopper posts seems wrong, granted i don't like the majority of them but deleting them all seems rather harsh and unfair.

    Did I miss something? :confused:

    I thought things quieted down a bit lately.

    Yes. With extreme prejudice.

    Leave it alone.

    I simply do not read the posts that I am not interested in.

    We were all 13 once...(please note that the above statement does not apply if you are currently under 13 .)
     
  8. talkbass is just fine like it is.
     

  9. DING DING DING, WE HAVE A WINNER!
     
  10. For chrissakes... leave OT alone! If you clean it up, the Bruce won't know what to do with himself.

    ;)




    :) We really do love you just the same, Bruce.

    :D
     
  11. Moderate more strictly, mmm... I wonder what it really means... Maybe TB should become an adult-only site! Better than that! A middle-to-upper-class-white-male-only site!

    Come on, let it go... :rolleyes:

    ouch.. that rings a little too close to the truth !
     
  13. Yes, I would like to see a lot more aggressiveness. We need to rush the pocket better and get to the QB much quicker. I would like to see more all-out blitzes myself.

    I have a better idea: Make Bruce an OT mod!

    ...better yet, make him the only OT mod.

    If clamping down more will be more work for the mods, then no. Of course, if you want the extra work, go nuts.

    How do you derive something racial out of a simple question. Besides, you dont know what ethnic background most of these people have. YOU need to let that go.

    Yes I am for stiffer moderation.

    The rules are the rules; they shouldn't be changed to limit certain users. If the rules are going to be changed, then they should be changed for ALL of TalkBass.
     
  18. Granted they are the rules, but they need to be more srtictly enforced.
