I have banned more people this week than I can remember having to do before. We normally go months without anyone getting banned. The rules are simple, no personal attacks, no religion, no politics. T

Jamal Adams has basically turned you into a  self emasculated broken record of butt hurt estrogen. So this is pretty ironic. 

You’re so dramatic

We are here to talk Jets. If you can't follow the rules you aren't welcome here. Shouldn't be that hard. We have been really relaxed here for a long time. We had almost 50,000 posts last month and we trust that people will be on good behavior here. When they aren't they are going to be shown the door.

I have asked the moderators to let less slide because so many people are taking advantage of our relaxed atmosphere. We don't want to ban anyone else, just talk Jets.

Speak for yourself. I gotta couple in me.

I had that post up for literally nine seconds before realizing that some vegetable was going to take it literally, specifically thinking of Scott Dierking, then I edited it to avoid what I call a “Scott Dietking Issue,” And now it appears I was nine seconds too late.

It would be nice seeing this applied evenly.  One guy who's never said a bad thing in his life got lifetime banned for (admittedly) something quite bad.

Today someone else with a history of bad posts got no ban (so far) for something FAR worse and materially more abjectly racist.

/shrug, it's just a bit scattershot tbqh, which itself leads to people not taking it seriously.

JMO.

Agreed. It’s a shame there is no due process. I realize that this is not a federal court, but all should be showed some measure of grace.... IMHO

I used to call those Klecko issues.

While your observation is valid, as a former mod you should know it’s hard to avoid arbitrary enforcement with different mods doing their best to uphold simple, but broad rules. Max gives posters the benefit of the doubt, I should know, and really encourages mods to mitigate stuff without bans.

Its really not the problem of the rules though. People should be better at being humans.

I do.  See my later post on this page, I think it covers it.

It doesn't take a monkey brain to know this.

Jeez @Maxman I step away for a while and everything goes to hell. 

This should be a happy time for us. We appear to actually have a quarterback. 

The sample size is too small to verify whether there is really any correlation here.  Why don't you step away for a while longer, so we can all look into the matter some more?  Your contributions to the study would be greatly appreciated.

Ugly racist BS.  Pretty much self immolation....I think @Gastineau Lives wanted to go out in a blaze of (un)glory.

Angelo got banned for racism? Really?

I'm sorry you decided to take it personally Max, and worse, decided to double down by making a personal attack yourself.

You don't want feedback?  Fine, no more feedback.  /shrug.

Facepalm. This is why I broke your balls totally in JI.

Can you also please ban the dumb people?  I feel that there are a lot of smart people, but also a lot of dumb people. If you ban the dumb people, then we would have an awesome site here.

It’s not that hard to get away with whatever if the jokes are funny and the points are worth making. Which not coincidentally is what makes for good content in the first place.
