    The first one was supplied with the following reason:

    Bloowdbuck addressed the second one.

    It is a great message board that is much better than bucknuts. One of the main reasons why this is better than bucknuts is due to a moderator like osugrad21 that monitors to ensure that there is no cursing or negativity about a recruit on here. If you prefer to see a recruit demeaned, then bucknuts is your place. If you want to see recruits treated with respect as humans, then the planet is your place.

    Dude, you broke a rule; deal with it.

    Don't go talking smack about the board because it beat the heck out of Bucknuts. If you'd shut up and read a few threads, you'd realize that.

    At any rate, if you don't like it, go back there. Don't sit there and pout.

    Little ****... everyone can curse here just not in the RECRUITING FORUM. If you'd have taken a second to look at the PM that Grad sent you, you probably would've realized what you done wrong but instead you had to throw a little hissy fit. Take your ass back to ****nuts!

    and these aren't

    personal attacks on me?


    nice way to treat a fellow buckeye alumni in the Buckeye Club.

    im sure they appreciate hearing how consistant you guys are with treating new memebrs and how consistant you are with passing out violations to 'selected' new members.

    unreal.

    what do you have to do to be able to get on osugrad21's VIP list & still break the recruting forum rules and still be allowed to post? (ie. the last couple guys addressing me)

    Just chill with the cussing on the recruiting board. There's lots of parents of players who visit there and we don't need a bunch of foul language to give them the wrong impression of OSU and it's fans.

    As a Buckeye club member, you should know that.

    Also, you know from Bucknuts that posting premium info. is a no no.

    If you just lay off of that, you'll be cool.

    Just hang low for a bit.

    Pasting premium content from other sites can't happen. Why you don't understand that, I can't comprehend. We may "bash" Bucknuts, but we still respect their intellectual property rights. BP was created to try and create a fansite with the right atmosphere and approach, stealing from others doesn't fit into that well. Had you linked and briefly summarized instead, I suspect you would have received a pat on the back, instead of a warning. Had you contacted the person who modified your post and asked about it all, I'm sure he would have told you why he had to edit it.

    The directive to remove posts that represent a tangible threat to the site's ability to operate comes from me. If you have a problem with that, then you're welcome to bring it up with me, I recommend PM but am happy to discuss it anywhere.

    We make a point to provide people with a lot of leeway on the boards. Sometimes this is good, sometimes it's bad. In a case like this, you're allowed to make an ass of yourself by going off on a rage, without anyone deleting or editing it out. Why? Because they're your words. You'll find that the recruiting forum is the tightest area of the site. This is because many recruits and/or family members of recruits visit here. You can get away with a lot more in the other forums, and with almost anything in Romper Room. There is a place and a time for basically anything you could possibly want to say, you just picked the wrong place and the wrong time.

    If BP isn't for you, that's fine. It's not for everyone. Feel free to pack up and be on your way. Frankly, little outbursts like this are really dragging this place down into the mud. It reminds me of BNuts, with all the fragile egos and rageaholics. If it is for you, then just try to understand that our responsiblity in the recruiting area is to the recruits and the program first, ourselves as fans second. If you are a Buckeye fan, I don't know why you would want it any other way.

    Was that supposed to say decent post? or Recent Post?

    Obviously... one would be funnier.

    Anyway.... part of the reason that this indeed is a nice 'massage board' is because most people here have the good sense... when a moderator edits a post... to PM them first and ask a question, instead of calling them out in public...To no real end other than make noise...

    I'm not sure why you're even complaining about the rules... common sense things.... like stealing propriatary information, demeaning the moderators, and insulting the community don't seem to concern you any...

    I'm sure everyone would like to know how classily you represent the alumni of the University.

    Too late.

    You reap what you sow I suppose. This board is a very loyal board and 99% of the members follow and respect the few rules we have here. Rule #1 is to NEVER bash a kid and Rule #1A is no cursing on the recruiting forum. You broke both of those within your first ten posts then instead of responding to my explanatory PM, called me out on the board. Therefore, you received a warning. If you choose to ignore these rules, you will be banned without question or warning.

    As for cursing, we are not on the recruiting forum anymore as your tirade caused a split thread. Personal attacks are not condoned so the guys who defended me by attacking you will get a simple PM and that will be sufficient because they too respect this board too much to watch it get ruined by people unable to follow simple rules.

    The choice to stay lies with you. This is a dead issue to me and you are welcome to contribute within the rules of the board. I f you cannot do this, then as Clarity said, feel free to find another board.
