    Lol @ people who hate on In & Out while comparing it to burgers not in the same category as far as price and convenience.

    It is what it is, a pretty good fast food burger.

    I spent a few days in Austin and people was like "you had a water burger" (sounded like what they were saying to me, tbh) like it was this thing that was great. I'm not too into hamburgers so I stuck to the BBQ.

    This board is the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger of boards. You know that there has GOT to be something better out there, but you keep coming back for the cheap, quick flavor fix even though it consistently leaves you unsatisfied. You don't know exactly what you're going to get, but you're fairly certain of the basic ingredients -- and it's not pretty, nor is it good for you -- but you crave it nonetheless.

    God bless Wen...err...Jazzfanz.

    I guess that's possible. It's difficult for me to enter into a mindset where anyone is taking Hantlers at face value.

    Rest assured to general users that Hantlers was really making a pest of himself and he appeared to go out of his way to get our attention.

    Here's some advice.

    Stop flexing your muscles. Stop going out of your way to be offended. Stop taking the forum so seriously. And stop banning people for measly things.

    Signed, we, the people.

    Some advice from a former moderator:

    Don't go out of your way to act like a jerk. Check your content before you post it. Stop going out of your way to be offended. Stop taking the forum so seriously.

    Signed, just another person.

    That's kind of the nature of the beast. Someone runs a place and makes the rules. The end user decides whether they find the rules too restrictive to the point where their enjoyment is being sufficiently hampered, and draws the line somewhere. If I paid the bills here I wouldn't give a flying **** if there was a profanity filter and would let people post just about any pic that wasn't total nudity (mostly just to avoid some parental warning type thing). But not being able to do those things hasn't kept me from my enjoyment of the place.

    In this case the rules are what they are, and have been for an eternity, and are unlikely to change except for some minor tweaks here and there. The funny thing is that the posters and personalities of this board have changed a ton for the 12 or whatever years I've been thru in the various incarnations of this place, but it still keeps moving along for whatever reason, and more funny is the people who get banned and seem to hate the rule system the most keep asking to come back.

    The thing is, if the rules were consistently enforced, half of us would be banned. Sad thing is, bans are personal or no?

    I don't care about the rules at all. It is the way they are enforced that bugs me. You have obvious trolls like Carolina jazz and a few others, who the management refuses to do a damn thing about, and then they get this personal vendetta against a couple of guys and try to force their heavy hand into making the website exactly what they want.

    What really matters here is that there is obviously some sort of purpose for Jason keeping this website up and running. He does not post much, so it's obviously not a passion of his. If it is a business, then act like a business, and don't run people out of the business when they come shopping. Nobody cares about the profanity filter, it's totally fine to filter profanity. No one cares that you can't post naughty pics here. What people do care about is when moderators, management and owners act like ****ty people to the posters on their board. If you want to get more posters, treat them like real people. I guarantee the trolling will go down, and people will not use ridiculous methods to get the attention of the management.

    I have said multiple times that it is getting less and less enjoyable posting on this site, and reading things here. I blame two things: first, the mods treat people like they are beneath them, and that is not enjoyable to read. Secondly, and something the management of this site obviously has zero control over, is the crwppy product on the floor in games.

    If you are going to have rules and selectively enforce them, then it's going to look bad no matter what your intentions were. If you want to be dicks to certain posters, then just be dicks to everyone, or don't be a dick at all.

    You are mistaken.

    1) CarolinaJazz has received infractions in the past. If you feel he is posting things that should receive infractions, please report them.
    2) If you're going to claim personal vendettas then you're going to have to name names. Who is that you think got run off the board by selective enforcement of the rules against them?
