First of all, Moose, I'm not sure of the "wisdom" in your attempt to force the admins to have a public discussion. I personally don't care much for that approach. I've chosen to let your post stand for the time being, although Acquila may take it down again, in which case he will probably take this down as well.

There are a number of problems here that you (and other posters here) should understand. There are six admins here, all of whom lead busy and (hopefully) productive lives. The last thing we want to spend our time on is being hall monitors handing out demerits to posters whose feelings have been hurt and strike back in anger.

We discuss things privately, but that often takes a good bit of time because it's not like we have a nightly conference call. It's a private section of this board and works the same way -- somebody posts a thought and somebody else replies hours later or the next day. So that often slows down action on a particular problem.

Our goal is to establish a place where civil discussion can be engaged in by folks passionate about the Eagles. I think for the most part we have accomplished that goal. There are periodic flare-ups, but eventually things die down again. That's to be expected among passionat people, wouldnt you agree?

To address the "big questions" you raised:

1. Trolls are allowed here, we have all kinds of fun with them. I might be mistaken, but I think the ban on name-calling does not extend to obvious trolls. To me a "troll" is defined as an admitted fan of another team who comes here to stir shit and bust on the Eagles while promoting their own lame team. That definition does NOT extend to long-term posters who maintain Eagles-fanhood, regardless of how irritating or "baiting" some may view them to be. The definition also does not extend to fans of other teams who are respectful and wish to share information. We have a Dallas fan here who is respectful and knowledgable and apart from his apparent mental illness (i.e., being a cowpukes fan) seems like a decent guy.

2. See #1. Trolls as I've defined are not protected. With regard to warning levels, it's simply a way for admins to keep track of how many times we've had to warn a specific poster about namecalling, primarily. I don't believe it's ever been stated that 5 warnings would get a poster banned, but I could be mistaken about that. The only people who have ever been banned from here basically asked for it explicitly. You've gotta pretty much set out to be banned to achieve it.

3. I'm not aware of a widespread credibility problem that we have. I'm aware that you're not particularly happy with us at the moment, and perhaps a handful of others, but we're doing our best. I dont anticipate putting any board administration decisions to public vote. The obvious problem is "whos the public?" Do long-term posters votes count equally with a guy who just signed up last week?

Please give us the time required to discuss these matters, and please stop trying to force a public discussion when it's clear that at least for now, we don't wish ot go that route.

Can't we all just get along?
