If u cant handle the stupidity of us posters, maybe u should resign ur position if its too stressful for you.  Sounds like your about to crack.  I mean man it must be really tough reading celtics posts all day.  zzzzzzzz.......zzzzzzzz.......zzzzz

don't be a fool

roy and co have done a great service giving us c's fans a place to vent.

all they ask is a little help in return. so before you go running to be the first to post some tidbit you saw on real gm check to see someone has beaten you to it.

You need to take it easy FDR. It sounds to me like you are the one about ready to crack. If you have a bee in your bonnet about Roy, then you should have handled that via personal message.

I suggest you do so. I can't imagine what sort of leverage you thought you were going to gain by assaulting one of the hardest working and most beloved members of this community in public.

Tell me whose thinking is not right?

Haha, with all the crappy, uneducated posts around here, Roy's are about the only ones that consistently make sense...if you ban someone, can't they just create another user name? seems to bad, reminds me of another celtics blog website I used to go to a couple of years back (before here). Get rid of this clown.

Roy should be the new GM/Coach/President of the C's

No, there are bans and then there are bans. The ones I tend to employ don't even allow for frontpage access and come complete with personal background information and residential satellite photographs.

I can honestly say that these past 4-5 years would have probably been a lot different, in a good way, if Roy was the GM of the 'tics...okay okay, enough butt kissing...

That is good to know- you guys run a real tight ship around here...

Roy, I've only been a member for about a month, but I think you and the other admins do a great job.  TP for the measured way in which you dealt with an unjust public insult.

Is that a joke? Residential satellite photographs? I'm starting to feel a little exposed. Are you watching me right now Bob Day?

Not at all, Pat. I never use such tactics except to protect CelticsBlog or members of this community and only then in special situations that might potentially pose harm to someone or ones. These are things you never want to have to do and I abide by a very strict set of codes and rules with regard to such matters. Rights to privacy are extremely important and we respect those greatly around here.

Since I've been involved with CelticsBlog there has only been two instances were I had to uncover personal information on people in order to get to the bottom of some issues. As those resolved, neither one of those situations turned out to be particularly threatening and were thus dropped from further pursuit and forgotten about.

This situation doesn't look dangerous either but then again, FDR is having one of his "moments" so I have to pay attention to that. I'm usually sort of a last resort around here with things like this. I don't normally get involved with admin and moderator issues.

When someone attacks a staff member like what we saw here though, it is our policy to take that staff out of the loop of the problem and try to resolve the issue between the rest of us. Today though, I simply happened to be the only other staff person around when this went down. Others will be around soon and I don't think they are going to be at all happy with what they see. So I imagine this little incident will be concluded pretty soon.

I would hate to see you do something to get yourself permanently banned.

Really? I wouldn't.

Thanks for all of the positive comments, guys.  And rest assured, if Danny ever offers me the job of Coach / GM / President, I'll keep you guys apprised of what's going on so that the blog has plenty to argue about.  Of course, in that instance, threads calling for my head would probably be a daily occurrence.
