    Doc, I will straight out say it.. There was one truly contentious voice in that thread. There was one voice complaining about being victimized. There was one voice that wanted that needle pushed and did so in the form of whining, insulting and trolling.

    There were many, many civil disagreements. There were many, many attempted civil disagreements with that voice. That voice chooses not to listen.


    As they say, one bad apple spoils the whole bunch

    There is a political section on the board where COVID can and should be talked about.

    This section should be for Yankee/Baseball talk, right?

    Not that simple Brett. (99% of the forum IS devoted exclusively to Yankee related discussion.) First, the main politics forum can be a zoo at times. Overwhelming to some. The primary reason the thread was started, to allow our own intimate group a place to discuss the issues in a small, familiar, comfortable setting. More like a discussion in the backyard among friends as opposed to a convention center with thousands of strangers.

    Clown we all need to take a breath. I sense the stress and anxiety level is on the rise. We all need to visit our Zen space, breath deep and relax.

    I've really not seen this as a heavy Yankee forum at all. But that is something I will look out for.

    I understand the want to keep it within the "family" so to speak.


    Does the following help to make you feel "safe"?

    The Yankees SUCK!!!

    Kidding. (well, not really, fun team to despise)

    Well if there was Yankee BB or ANY BB for that matter there would be much more fodder. Imo we have one of the best prospect threads of any NYY sports forum. Dedicated people doing serious research. Our in game discussion and analysis is always a fun read.

    Those type comments (bolded) will certainly endear you with the PSD faithful!

    Well, it's what makes teams great, right? If you weren't hated you'd not be as popular. The best team in all of football are the Dallas Cowboys. And when I mean best, I am the team people care more about than any other. They are loved or hated but always cared about. Same with the Yankees. They are loved or hated but always cared for.

    So one of the great treats I got to see on FoxSports this past week was the Dave Raghetti no-hitter with Mel Allen on the call. How I miss TWIB

    I agree. Sustained success breeds contempt. Everyone doesn't always love a winner!

    Folks, Day and I have decided based on the volume of Coronavirus politics discussion that it may be wise to reopen this thread. The OT thread has been cluttered with political comments. It is obvious to me people want and need to discuss the virus and the politics surrounding it.

    We only ask that you keep it civil, be respectful of others opinion and try to show tolerance. DO NOT use the RP feature frivolously. All political / covid discussion now belongs here NOT in the OT thread.

    Thanks in advance for you understanding and continued cooperation.

    Things worth repeating, please keep in mind when quoting sources:

    Here are some general guidelines.

    Types of Reliable Sources

    A reliable source is one that provides a thorough, well-reasoned theory, argument, discussion, etc. based on strong evidence.

    I prefer, scholarly, peer-reviewed articles or books -written by researchers for students and researchers. Original research, extensive bibliography. Found in GALILEO's academic databases and Google Scholar. Anatomy of a Scholarly Article.

    Trade or professional articles or books - written by practitioners in a field to impart practice-oriented information. Found in GALILEO databases. Some may also be found through Google or other search engine, but may require payment to see the full text. Beware of sources on the internet that look like trade/professional articles, but don't have reliable content.

    Magazine articles, books and newspaper articles from well-established newspapers - written for a general audience by authors or journalists who have consulted reliable sources and vetted through an editor. Newspapers and magazines often contain both researched news stories and editorial/opinion pieces that express the view of the writer. It is important to be able to distinguish between them! Beware of sources on the internet that look like reputable magazines, and newspapers, but don't have reliable content.


    Websites and blogs - can be reliable or unreliable, hoaxes or sincere misinformation. Researchers and other experts often use blogs as a way to share their knowledge with the general public, but anyone with computer access can do so too, to further any agenda they want. It's up to you to evaluate the quality of what you find online. Online news sources are particularly notorious for false information. Professor Melissa Zimdars of Merrimack College put together a document called "False, Misleading, Clickbait-y, and/or Satirical 'News' Sources" to help you read news sources with a critical eye .


    Wikipedia - some entries are reliable, some are not - it's up to you to evaluate. The authors are anonymous, so there's no way to determine their expertise, or the expertise of the Wikipedia editor who oversees the entry. Wikipedia editors will post warnings if they think the entry has weaknesses. Wikipedia entries tend to be conservative, reflecting traditional views over newer research.

    Also worthy of mention, https://www.factcheck.org/. Reliable fact checking service, a nonpartisan, nonprofit “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. They monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews and news releases. Their goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.
