    Why? If you are asking why make my point here as opposed to in a private message, it is because none of the mods have been responding to PM’s for months.

    No, I believe the point was why make a political analogy at all when two threads were just locked for being overly political and toxic? Seems inappropriate to do so.

    You even stated that you didn't like that political talk leaked into other threads, but then added your own political spin here. C'mon.

    Yeszir to the rescue!

    I was just tired of a few posters carrying their political opinions and rants into several other threads, and continued to do so despite requests from several posters not to do so, especially when you were allowing politics in the "Anything Goes" thread.

    My feeling is that if you want to discuss politics, go to a political forum.

    At any rate, we could probably use a couple of moderators who are here on a regular basis.

    And let me also say that I think this is a great forum and it's usually a fun place to come to post about baseball. We just need to lose the politics running over into the other threads.

    I will make a political analogy and if the mods don't like it and want to ban me, so be it. The dereliction of the mods had the direct effect of turning this once fun forum into the internet equivalent of Portland where night after night we had a riot. If you guys don't want to moderate this forum, maybe you should pass it onto someone else who will look after it.
    I tend to agree with your first paragraph, but we could have done without the second one.

    Anyone else getting new popup adds at the bottom of the page? I don't mind as I know bills need to be paid. Just want to make sure it's just not solely a me thing.

    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    Google turned on some stupid auto ad optimization which put ads everywhere. I removed it, should be back to normal now.
