    Default When will they ever learn?

    I rarely go over there, but I was bored and thought I'd take a look at TheMat.com Forums. This post was at the top of the Non-wrestling topics page. Look familiar? I remember Coach Sparky as an intelligent and responsible poster, not a troll who would deserve that kind of treatment.

    Cann't even ask a simple question about the senseless deleting of posts I guess. How bout some sort of explaination??????

    It doesn't matter what the title or initial comment entails, if someone makes a personal attack, or uses foul language, the entire thread gets yanked.

    The trolling over there by a few has become constant.

    Yes, but the problem back when we migrated here was that this was being done with no explanation so that we didn't know what they considered improper. They didn't even respond to polite and respectful inquiries. To quote Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction, "I won't be ignored!"

    I don't think that the moderators here tolerate much more than those at TheMat.com, but our guys (and gal) explain what the problem is and treat us with respect. Also, there's probably much less garbage here to monitor - we're a kinder, gentler forum .

    The problem I see over there is that more and more of the threads are nothing more than personal attacks. It really has become a sad state of affairs. Most of those that I enjoyed reading are over here now anyway.

    One of my personal favorites that Mr Spider was a big part of, was the "counting thread". Some clever use of words and not a single bad word about any other posters.
