SOMEONE ELSE WILL, NEED TO DO

I am posting the tournament and the Featured Player today. This will be my last time so if it gets done. someone else will have to do it. I am not including this message in in their threads because it is not theri fault that the conditions set for participation is Salty Dog no longer apply and the "nannies" have gotten so intusive that the site "sucks" while the technical problems persist!!

Well I certainly hope it doesn't mean that Linda is going to stop posting. That wouldn't be a good turn of events, regardless of whether one agrees with her or not. I'm not sure if, in trying to correct an extreme, we're not going to another one?

Linda
Despite our differences, I do hope you will reconsider your desire to stop your posting. This adherence will probably lapse and soon return to its normalcy.

Thanks Linda/Heidi for posting these each morning. Your contributions to the sploofus website have not gone un-noticed

Sometimes a break from all of this is needed; it's beginning to consume more of my time and energy, which is nothing in comparison to your contribution, Linda. I do hope you don't disappear.

Linda can have it back any time she likes. I won't be posting as early as she did and all she has to do to take it back is to post before I do.

I totally understand Linda's sense of having her freedoms curtailed, what is being proposed here is nothing short of dictatorial.

I expect that will lighten up if things calm down. I think they just want to stop the bickering and encourage a broader range of discussion, not a narrower one.

At least that's what I hope.

Please don't stop posting, Linda! The Salty Dog will be a much duller place without you. I don't agree with all your views, but I always find them interesting to read.

The Player of the Day is one of those pleasant things on the Island that just makes you feel good, and I thank Linda for doing her part to promote the good feelings. I think if we take a deep breath and just give it a little thought, we can talk about almost anything without ever resorting to the personal attacks or bombastic bullying or other nastiness, which is probably what brought about the current chill. Even politics, or religion, are subjects which can be discussed in a civil manner, even with differences of opinion. The reason they are usually avoided in polite society is because it is so easy to get too enthusiastic and just become a big jerk about it.

Thank you Linda for your efforts to ensure that the player of the day got their day in the sun here on the salty dog. I too hope you reconsider your decision to stop posting. Your absence would leave a huge void on the island that would be impossible to fill. I also hope Justin and the editors reconsider their decision to delete all political posts. While I don't participate in the political threads myself (politics just isn't my thang) I grew up in a highly political family, and I know how much they enjoyed an intelligent political discussion, even when it turned into a slightly heated debate. While I applaud Justins efforts to reduce the ammount of trolling and negative comments about people on the boards, I think there has to be a grey area where the politically minded can still have intelligent adult discussions and the editors step in only if a thread takes a turn for the nasty.

I agree RJ. I agree with removing offensive posts, and those particular posts that become less about discussion and more about attack. But to remove any thread that might have a political component to it, is stupid. I think that approach should have been taken first, and if that didn't control the problem, THEN go to the extreme.

Did I miss something? When/how we were notified about the political posts. I think that is sad, some of our most robust discussions from there ... delete those with personal attacks or foul language, of course, but please don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Those who don't want to read political threads don't have to. I hope you will reconsider Justin.

Didn't you hear? Justin sold the site to a Chinese firm.

Good move, Linda.

I must note that I upgraded to gold a few months ago with good intentions, and that the good will of that moment is slip-sliding away today.
