You guys seem to constantly make excuses for Ciaban for whatever reason but enlighten me how he has not baited in that thread? He has... I stated weeks ago there was no point in going any further with it because he cant help himself and will easily do the same crap again and see that thread as an example...


    For the most part Gibby/Me/Spliff etc etc are/have been called on our bull **** in the past and rightfully so... This dude that should be held to a higher standard quite literally gets away with everything and it derails threads and has made the MLB game day thread unviewable.

    Again I am just going to shut up and drop it because all you need to do is wait a bit and he will go back to the same ******** and all I am going to do in the MLB area now is report them if its justified... It sucks because we need all the people we can get including guys like spliff/ciabian/gibby.... Hell Its a 2 way street I expect the same done to me if I am derailing to that extent. See you in 2 weeks when Ciabian pulls his same dumb stuff.
    Didn't Ciaban quote Spliff on the "getting spanked"? Are you saying that only a regular poster is able to say that but when a mod uses the same comment to that poster it's baiting? You're a Phillies fan, right? Why all the hate for the Dodgers when you're in the NL East?

    Be back dude, it's cold out here. Brrrrrrr.

    Rush is a good guy, even for a Giants fan.

    In all seriousness I'm not one that argues/fights with rival fan bases. I got a ton of respect for Rush and hughest4 (a Packers mod). I know you guys have a thing with Ciaban but he's just as passionate as you guys. I don't see that comment as baiting or that he's abusing his privileges. It's a poke back at Spliff, that's all.

    Sometimes we got to have thick skin about the stuff that is said about our teams, especially those who are doing the same taunting. I've gone into the Lions forum (Lions/Bears GDT) and the first thing I see is "**** the Bears" and it doesn't bother me at all, that's part of being a rival and that post wasn't personal. Every now and then I'll post in a rivals forum respectfully and they've never attacked me.

    One of my real life best friends is a San Francisco Giants fan, dude is like a brother to me. I've defended him at Dodgers games a couple of times, over fans wanting to fight him just because he was wearing a Giants jersey and hat. And before anyone says something about L.A., it's the same thing up North. I guess what I'm trying to get at is rival fan bases can co-exist or become friends. All that fightings and hating someone because they're on whatever team is childish to me. Anyways, I'll ask others to come in here and see if you can get more answers on this.

    I never hated Cia or had issues with him and i agree about the thick skinned part... I have no issues with that and its why I stopped reporting and take very little to heart... Its more so like Jeffy said... It derails the discussion so very badly and even when a guy like Rush steps in and tells people to stop their **** it lasts about a day...

    Lol yea i like rush and wish he was a phillies fan.... because he is a giants fan he deserves what he gets... the giants killed my dreams a few years back.

    I've see this movie before.

    Carson, trust me, even if you turn out to be a really bad QB, BDawk4Prez will always defend you on PSD.

    The difference is, and you clearly said it, that ciaban and spliff aren't 'friends.' I've had 'friends' and built a rapport with a handful of Mets fans here over the years especially during the heyday of both teams (Mets and Phillies). We would bash eachother back and forth but that was always in a joking/yet serious manner. No one ever cared because the rapport was there.

    That's the difference. Ciaban does not have that rapport with spliff and others. That's why it's trolling and baiting.

    For a minute take away your dislike for Ciaban and the current staff we have.

    It wasn't a baiting comment when Spliff said it, why would it be for Ciaban? We understand mods are expected to be model citizens but to think mods have to walk on eggshells and can't poke back at a user for the same comment he made is a little ridiculous.

    Never said I have a dislike for the current staff. Have never said that actually but thanks for feeling like I have.

    So mods aren't expected to be model citizens? I have no problem with you, never have, or a countless number of other mods. As I stated, a rapport is/was built. If this was one instance. If you want to nit pick, I'm sure you could do that for a lot of posters claimed as "trouble posters," by pointing out the good posts they make. Just because this one instance is teetering doesn't mean he's been innocent throughout all of this. I have no vendetta or anything, if I did I'd do it to more than just ciaban. Just says quite a bit when a it's not only one poster making these claims.

    I don't care as much at this point anyway. I'll just come and post. I actually called someone a ****ing moron the other day/week and didn't have a single thing done to me (notified via PM or anything, actually only received a PM from another poster telling me to knock it off that the poster I called that wasn't worth getting banned over and he didn't want to see me banned). I actually made that post to see if I would even get infracted/banned. So, I'm pretty sure this site is very loosely moderated due to inactivity and I'm sure it'll remain that way. I'll just keep on posting.

    KJ, for your example of the post you made, honestly, we require users to report posts more than ever before. The site is not loosely moderated due to inactivity in a sense. For one, we are trying to be a little more lenient because of the points system and what's happened in the past. The second is that, yes, activity is down- we do have less posters, but with that also comes less moderators. We don't have the number of posters or mods there probably were 4-5 years ago when activity peaked.

    Keep reporting posts, keep letting us continue to work.

    I've read a lot of your posts and VM's, it's a lot of negative things you've been saying lately on the moderation.

    As for you calling someone a "****ing moron", you know we can't see every post, especially when they're not reported. If you're trying to get banned, posting porn is the way to go.

    The activity is low throughout the site which is understandable.

    If I have, I have, but I don't think I've been overly critical of the masses, just an individual or so.

    But they're are moderators I know who would've come across that. I'm certain of it.

    Well, I'll be able to be mod again if I do that

    Exactly. Should be beyond obvious but when you're too busy blindly defending your own I guess it needs to be spelled out. ciaban has always been nothing but a complete annoyance to everyone in the Giants forum. No one in there (outside of maybe Rush) has the least bit of respect for anything the guy has to say, yet he continues to pop up to troll/bait, and then play dumb/victim when people call him out for it. The flippin' Dodgers forum hardly even respects him as far as I can tell.

    Beyond that, I can take whatever nonsense he throws my way. The issue is that I get infracted and banned for participating in the back and forth while nothing happens to him every....single....time. As many in here have said, there should be a higher standard for moderators. I get that the Dodgers forum was desperate for some sort of consistent moderation but there's no way anyone can seriously look me in the eye and say that he is/was proper mod material.

    Yet, knowing how this site operates, there is basically no way he'll ever be de-modded or even checked by his fellow mods properly unless he commits a felony or two and word of it surfaces on PSD.

    There's no reason to pretend like we are bashing the entire PSD staff. The issue here is ciaban (and yeah, also the way mods seem very hesitant to ever call out their fellow mods but that's mainly only an issue here due to the consistently unchecked behavior of ciaban).

    To infer that ciaban ever walks on eggshells when it comes to his trolling of Giants fans is what's ridiculous here. Having said this, the most recent exchanges with him in the MLB GDT are really not the best example of his behavior. He constantly is looking for avenues to troll Giants fans and only adds fuel to the fire of these situations by egging on his fellow Dodgers fans to do the same (Gibby23 in that GDT thread is a decent example) instead of taking his role as a mod seriously and trying to nip potentially disruptive conflicts in the bud.

    I know I'm wasting my time typing any of this but that's what PSD is for when it comes down to it!

    Me not being a mod is an obvious sign that this place has been corrupted.

    Should not make a difference.

    While its not a problem between the two people who are just messing around with each other, when it is published the context is not known by all posters and the language and tone of the post becomes a baseline for what is acceptable.

    You cannot have different rules for different folks because it creates inconsistency and therefore confusion.
