    Gentlemen:

    My post references this thread where the original poster declares the intention to commit illegal activities.

    I bring this particular post to your attention because--even though it is is MLS Rivalries--I hope that we will not tolerate it on Big Soccer. I read through the Terms of Service and the "Read Me Before Posting" thread as well; the thread I reference seems (to me) to be inappropriate.

    Again, let me emphasize that I understand that threads in Rivalries are going to push the limits of the Terms of Service. That said, any post that crows about illegal activities has no place on these boards (IMO).

    If I am off-base, please forgive the intrusion into your busy days. If this is not the appropriate place to post this, please instruct me as to where it should go.

    Thanks for reading

    Sirs:

    We will endeavour to provide to you the high quality information and entertainment that you are accustomed to within the Customer Service board.

    ;)

    Seriously, however, I hope that this thread does not go the way of the "Red Card/Yellow Card" pissing matches. I am alerting the enlightened powers that be to a situation I find concerning, and I am interested in their considered responses.

    Cheers!

    I still have seen no response from the powers that be.

    Here is the latest. Perhaps one of the supermods can explain how this is acceptable...

    While I am certain that you think you have made a point here, it misses the mark completely.

    Big Soccer has terms of use by which all users are required to abide. These posts I have cited are in clear violation of those standards.

    They are notable as they are inciting violence and illegal activities.

    If those who run Big Soccer consider this acceptable, they should say so, respond to this thread in a civil and meaningful way, do away with the terms of use, and stop the charade.

    For that matter, they should do away with the non-transparent points and carding system used to control behaviors. After all, if you lack the organizational will to maintain standards, you should not bother having them in the first place.

    This, sirs, is my point.

    I fervently hope that someone with decision making authority will address this thread and set the record straight.

    I am surprised that this has not yet happened, as I have seen far less significant issues receive far more rapid attention by mods and supermods.

    I would not mind if the lack of standards allowed me to get a special blue card that I could wave in the face of all.

    Just FYI.

    Sir:

    This is the forum for Customer Service, where interested users come to pose questions to and receive information from those who run Big Soccer.

    As such, it is (as I understand it) the appropriate channel through which I may pursue the matter at hand.

    It is absolutely not within my power as a user of this site to take any action other than to make visible (to those who maintain standards) abuses of the site. If you are attempting to imply that I should take any action beyond that which I have already taken, I would be interested to learn what you consider to be appropriate.

    I believe that I have addressed your uncivil question. As to your gross mis-characterization of my previous post, I lament your nonconstructive contribution to the conversation.

    This is without a doubt one of the greatest posts in the history of the World Wide Web.

    I bow to your skill with words.

    My good Sir,

    It is a refreshing change to see one who can converse as was intended by our forefathers. Ignore some less than civil individuals in this thread who refuse to see what was a truly well made point. I do object to your use of the colloquial term for passing water in the fifth post of the thread. It is most unbecoming for a gentleman of your stature. While not a moderator of this forum, I do agree with you and shall vehemently argue your point elsewhere.

    Now I say to you ruffians, leave the old chap alone. If you lack the common sense to see the glorification of violence and its advertisement to be wrong and contrary to basic moral beliefs, then I shall simply ask for your forgiveness from Our Lord. The posters of that ungodly forum are truly beyond the help of mankind.

    Thank you for your kind attention.

    Faithfully Yours,
    !Bob

    Most excellent and gracious sir:

    I greatly appreciate your kind words, and I grieve that I offended your sensibilities in the fifth post of this thread.

    I hope you will do me the honor of accepting my unconditional apology.

    By way of explanation--not of mitigation--allow me to address my choice of words. When I wrote the offensive phrase, I chose to utilize a well-known colloquialism that I believed would resonate with the reading public.

    Again, apologies, and thanks for your kindness.

    There it is.
