Why Mod's?

Why did the Kavanaugh thread get deleted? Why not just go in and delete the posts that stepped over the line? Why not just put the in band camp?

    If folks would learn to settle down and have some respect, perhaps the mods wouldn't be deleting threads.

    I've been coaching a fast-pitch softball game. I get home and check the forum, and it's gone. I haven't read anything before it was deleted to warrant the delete, so I don't know what was posted. It seems to me the one thread that was on either 24 or 25 pages would have been kept alive. Just crazy!

    A select few (the usual suspects) decided to turn it into a personal mud slinging pissing contest.  I don't blame the mods, I blame those who clearly lack self control and integrity.

    I didn't check the thread for at least a half hour before its demise and I can only imagine what went down.

    As usual we'll be told that the topic had run its course and it had no place on a fishing forum. The left must have had their bum handed to them again, that's when threads get removed.

    Clearly the membership wants to discuss politics, it was the most popular thread in months in this morgue.  

    I guess there was a danger of generating too much traffic and they weren't willing to risk advertisers getting any value at all for their investment in FS.

    You won't get an answer. 

    Instead of cleaning up a thread, delete the entire thing. Way it works.

    Why the second thread on it?  That one started very insightfully.

    I think it was you. I can't remember the time. Not sure of the date. I'm pretty sure it was Florida Sportsman Fishing Forum, but can't say for sure.

    Yeah, it was you.

    They way things are going on this largely forgotten forum the moderators will soon outnumber the moderated.

    But the "usual suspects" are still here and will soon be sneaking in back door political posts with impunity.  My favorite is the guy that is usually "disturbed" about something.  Very disturbing. LOL.

    Sorry guys, it got too political so was told to take it down.

    From what I read of that thread it had turned into one group calling him a lying drunk and the other calling her a lying ****. If you banned those that crossed the line half the people posting on it would be gone. It was not just one or two. 

    I was amazed it had not been locked or removed earlier.

    Agreed on absolutely all points.  Well stated.

    Maybe it was I? Since I said the Ford broad was a liar and I had zero sympathy for her?

    what are you talking about, I commented twice on that silly thread during the first page then didn’t look at it again: https://forums.floridasportsman.com/discussion/263018/400#latest

    for or the record the number of posts or received since the last time I went into it was over 600, what a waste of time

    I think tarponator had the highest post count in that thread. He was cross examining everyone else!

    We give y'all a little leeway from time to time knowing we will be eventually be taken advantage of. Some of you get upset if we leave it up and some of you get upset when it's taken down.

    And now some are trying to take this thread in the same direction.

    Regardless, the fact still stands that political posts are, by far, the most popular of the entire forum and the numbers clearly demonstrate member content preferences.
