Hey Everyone,

I have been really busy lately, and I haven't been around the forum in some time.

I am disappointed to see that things have largely degraded into personal attacks, excessive foul language, and other things that aren't really good for anybody. Some of the most active forum posters are leaving, as a result, which really is a shame.

This forum is about Seinfeld, and it would be great if everyone can act in the spirit of Seinfeld: just for the comedy, for the laughes. There is no need to attack one another and launch accusations, etc.

Everyone here loves Seinfeld, so let's talk about the show and have fun.

Several people have requested that I post some forum rules, so I will be doing this soon. In the meantime, let's all behave like adults and keep things in the spirit of Seinfeld.

Giddy-up,

Stan

Now that you're stepping in, can we finally find out the names of the mods that run this board?

By the way, some people have asked about moderators.

Since I am too busy to spend much time on the forum, I have granted several people moderator status. These moderators have been a great help, even if it may seem otherwise to some. I really appreciate the efforts that have been made by those moderators.

I made a promise to each moderator, that I would not reveal their identity. I won't break that promise. But I am willing to admit that it may have been a mistake to have anonymous moderators. As such, I have now revoked the permissions of all moderators. I repeat, I think the moderators did a great job, and this is not meant to penalize them. But I think it is time for a new phase: a phase with moderators who are not anonymous, who are known to be moderators by all members, and identified as such.

I don't know if this will improve things on the board, but I am willing to try. If you would like to volunteer to be a moderator, please reply to this thread.

By the way, as always, I am open to suggestions to improve the forum. Fire away. Wink

Stan, can I get my original IP unbanned now so I don't have to jump from proxy to proxy like some sort of online criminal?

I can e-mail you it again, if you need it.

elaine's panties,

I will ask you for an act of good faith. Please don't post on the board for one week. After that, I will unban your IP.

Your comments (generally speaking) have been a detriment to this board over the past several days. But for some reason I believe you are a true Seinfeld fan, and true Seinfeld fans are who this board is for. But you need to take my advice: keep things in the spirit of Seinfeld.

No soup for you...come back, one week! Wink

Stan, I'll admit I've developed quite the acid tongue lately, but you have to understand how frustrating it is to take the time to write out a well thought-out post, only to have it deleted for no one to read, regardless of what the post was about, but just because it came from me.

Also, most of my posts in the last few days were just defending myself. Even though I was getting deleted and banned after every post, I figured if I didn't call attention to it, it might go away. It didn't and I got fed up. If I'm supposed to leave for a week, I'd say that Jimmy should be asked to leave for the same period of time - if not more. Not my call, just my opinion.

Myself however, I'll leave peacefully. After all, it's only for a week. But before I go, I’ll tell you, if I was running for office I would ask for the death penalty for post-deleters. If this is allowed to go on this is not a society. THIS IS ANARCHY.

Alright! That's it for me. Goodnight everybody.

FOR STAN:

I have never used so much profanity in my life (Jimmy'll do that to ya) (joke, i have to cover my ass now).

But something needs to be addressed. I don't like where this is going with all these forum rules...

Ok, Stan, you may or may not have noticed, parksdepartment@hotmail.com is not a real address (well not mine anyway), so this is one of the rare chances i'll ever have to voice some suggestions.

First off, the issue that I was concerned about from the beginning was about censorship and post deletion and where to draw the line (which I know is up for debate). But the key thing here is to remain consistent.

As i've said before, I haven't been around as much as I usually am, so I might have missed something, but from the posts that i've read (I'm not sure when the deleting started), it seemed to me that Panties was having his posts deleted for using offensive language. If i'm wrong then please correct me. (This is where i suggest that moderators announce post deletions and possibly giving a general reason such as spam, etc)

If there was something that truly deserved to be deleted without a doubt, then i have not read it. Who knows maybe Panties DID do something like leave a Rape Website link on a post. But if nobody knows why his posts are being deleted, then it might seem that he's being unfairly treated.

If i'm correct that it was about language or about attacking another member, then I would hope that you would reconsider deleting their posts.

Because it's not consistent with what goes on here on a weekly basis. This attitude is what makes this forum more attractive than Seinology and Seinfeldfan.net

I realize that this sort of thing can drive away the soft-skinned, but if Jimmy can dish it out, and Bookman can dish it out, and Gendison, and I can, why not Panties? Eventually, Panties will prove himself to be either a passionate, emotional Seinfeld fan (much like Jimmy) or just another fad we never hear from again. Either way, his posts should not be deleted for foul language.

I'll admit, that things got a bit out of hand, and it's embarassing to have you come and have to tell us to calm down. I just hope this forum doesn't fold under the pressure and become like every other forum where the regulars have nothing else to do but answer questions for people.

THIS NEXT PART IS FOR JIMMY (IF YOU CHOOSE TO READ IT):

(fact: you made the first attack. You started the profanity.)
I started out from the beginning addressing this censorship problem, and somehow it became a discussion about how I jump on a bandwagon to attack Jimmy, how i side with "board terrorists".
Let me make this clear, I DON'T SIDE WITH ANYBODY. I NEVER HAVE. I choose to have fun on this site whichever way pleases me. If Wibble has a good comeback, i'll acknowledge it, if somebody chooses the name Elaine's Panties, i'll chuckle. Heck, i even claimed to be Guero. The genius behind that one I was actually playing on my reputation here (which is totally unfounded) that i'm always siding with board terrorists. I started a thread begging Jackie and Gendison to take out the claws again. I didn't care about watching them go at it, I was having fun.

I've made jokes about you, i've made jokes about Wibble, i've made jokes about Ramon, you name it.

I've never made one enemy on this site, though. Because i've been able to remain tasteful in my remarks so that those who are reading it can tell that i'm joking. I've made numerous jabs at Ramon, and have taken them too. Ok, so I had a little tiff with Bookman a long time ago that lasted about an hour. Why would i have this personal vendetta against you? Everything i do on this site (except for this) is always to have fun. I figured I can make jabs at you because you knew that it wasn't an attack, but a joke (like the "what kind of idiot would give Jimmy any sort of power or authority).
If you were affended then i'm sorry, i'll have to work harder at making sure there is no confusion between an attack and a joke.

Meanwhile, you have numerous people posting entire threads trying to get you kicked off. Maybe it's because you use words like fuck, and cunt. (putting the * doesn't change a whole lot)

I will stop the personal attacks, i'm sorry it went so far.

However I will not stop having fun on this site, even if that involves deciding not to berate a newbie.


And the award for longest rant goes to.....Cousin Jeffrey for Two Rants and a Joke.

Jimmy's never started anything with anyone, ever. Jimmy's always strictly defended himself since Jimmy's been here. the proof in in the posts. They're still here for everyone to read, so you can't escape the truth. Jimmy won't put up with attacks from you (who AlWAYS Attacks Jimmy first) or anyone else. Once again (and it's a mystery why you need this repeated over and over again) everytime an a-hole comes into this forum, Jimmy gives them a harmless but smartass answer to get rid of them... then they become angry and attack Jimmy... then you join in. It's just that simple! There's no ifs, ands, or buts about it! It has happen far too many times to count, and for you to deny. Everyone who's been here awhile knows it. What part of that don't you understand. Jimmy's not stupid. You attack Jimmy, and Jimmy will attack back. It's not rocket science.

You always claim everything's a joke after you start shit up with people. Bullshit! it's always been your nature to instigate trouble between board scum, Jimmy, and yourself... and whomever else you can drag into it, then say it was sarcasm or some other lame excuse when things get out of control. You're a trouble maker, and you always have been since you've been here. All of those who have tried to get Jimmy kicked off are long gone because their crap wasn't tolerated. If we were all like you, there would only be porn solicitors and dirtbags on this board.

Jimmy could care less whether or not you berate newbies... that's YOUR twisted misunderstanding to sort out.

Jimmy has no problem with Bookman, Chiles, Gendison, Ramon, Denim, Yev, Hate The Drake, etc, etc, etc... because... (now get ready, here's the part that confuses you)....They talk about Seinfeld and don't purposely insult Jimmy simply to support some a-hole who won't even post a name! Get it? Think about it! Is it really that difficult for you to think back on and realize?

Get lost!

Jimmy

By the way. Jimmy is not, nor ever has been, a moderator. Let that be the end of that.

The only mods Jimmy's ever been aware of were Veg and Maestro.

Whoops, I read that other thread before I read this one, now I know why I can;t log in. Embarassed I did reveal a name or two in the other thread, not knowing that I wasn't supposed to, oops again. Embarassed

Stan, I had just gotten back to work on the character section too, that thing is tough to clean out though.

I think the idea of a set of rules is a good idea, and would be a wise choice. As I have said before, maybe an off-topic forum, to make this place a little more well-rounded? Where people could talk about sports, or news in general, it would bring a little more conversation around.

Just my little ideas.
