Typical moderator.

Gary's programming does not allow him to delete a post just because it points out that his take is asinine.  Otherwise I would have a lot fewer posts on this board.

It does allow him to delete posts that make personal attacks.  And posts that truly suck.  You may want to re-evaluate your post and focus on which of those two categories your post fell under.

Also worth mentioning that discussing moderation does not fall under the Pure Football charter.  There is a separate forum that allows you to whine about the highly paid professional moderators and their unending efforts to thwart you from publishing your winning arguments.

He knows all that. Poppa is of the opinion the charter doesn't apply to him.

The reward for deleting poppas tripe is payment enough , it allows me to donate my checks to build libraries just like Carnegie.

Without him , my trigger finger would run out of practice and I'd lose my atypical label.

sheeet now the secret is out .

"Gary's programming does not allow him to delete a post just because it points out that his take is asinine.  Otherwise I would have a lot fewer posts on this board."

-- Thanks for your post. I'm hazy about any politics surrounding this forum. I'll try to avoid electronically crossing paths with anyone who can up and delete my posts. 

"It does allow him to delete posts that make personal attacks.  And posts that truly suck.  You may want to re-evaluate your post and focus on which of those two categories your post fell under."

-- A "personal attack" can often be defined differently by different people in different contexts and on days when they feel differently. A flexible item that is open to manipulation. 

Deciding that a post "truly sucks" could be influenced by several factors as well. Some for the greater good and some- perhaps- formed by personal opinions. 

We all do what we think is right. 

I do think it's wise to avoid personal attacks and truly sucking as I define those things. Not that I always can, I'm sure. Do you think I somehow "personally attacked" this Gary person or that my posts were bad enough to "truly suck"? I ask for information and direction.

But if someone feels the need to delete my posts, please do so. It's hardly the worst that can happen. And it will be a learning experience.

My tripe? Now that's funny coming from you SD.

I guess I'll just have to console myself with being right.

Strange how the rules only apply to the non-moderators. Or am I the only one who noticed GR referring to Mistro as " Luther"?

But it's all good. Unlike some others, I can take it.

SD:

Doubt you have the toughness you profess my man , if you did you'd knuckle down put your hard  hat on and put your work in without the snippy reporter.

Attaboy Luther is a staple like  LOL ROTFLMAO or HMFIC when it comes to PF vernacular, for those who can't help themselves and like to wave and shake their pompoms unabashedly  ,which we frown on around here .

Its also used for those whose only response  is to cheer lead the position of another poster without original thought or input which forwards  the thread .

We could probably use it in your case for wasting band space giving undo personal attention to you  , without regard to the thread topic kinda like a parent having to scold their children infront of company , but somehow  it would fit into your perverse pleasure to feel picked on and defeat the learning lesson for which it was intended.

Tell ya what , , I'll make you the same deal as Gary made mistero ,  you initiate a post within charter , and show us what a fine piece of manpower and unrecognized talent we're working with  and I'll pin it at the top for all to see.

Well, Otter's post about Gary wasn't directed to you, so I assume you're speaking generally. But if Gary thinks your take sucks, he'll let you know. ; - )

-- My bad. It was a reply to my post, but it did contain fragments from another post. So I guess I see where I made my mistake.

Although I put my driveling in the context of my post, I was speaking generally on some level. It's comforting that no one thinks my posts so far both suck and contain personal attacks. Since the days of getting drunk in high school, I've tried to keep personal attacks that suck to a minimum.
