    Hello? Globe? Mind Taking a Look at Your Boards?

    They must not be paying attention. That's all I can figure. From last Spring Trainging to the one, the boards here have gotten exponentially worse. And it's the fault of only four or five IP addresses. The Globe could fix this problem rather quickly if they wanted to. And not by blocking Law's 291st different profile name. It's shameful, especially since the vast majority of people on this board actually want to discuss real baseball topics. Instead, we have endless posts and discussions about how bad this 95 win per season team is, how bad the management sucks, how everyone who thinks this team will win a single game this year is a Theo Chick, etc. etc.. Please mods, do something about it. I like the Globe, but the boards are atrocious. So many people would be thankful if you simply cleaned the boards of half a dozen people.

    Agreed 100%! I sent them 3 mails already, but apparently nobody really cares. I rarely post, but I use to read a lot... But recently, even reading has become ugly. That's a shame.

    Agreed, all. Even Crono, Law can say all he wants.

    He just doesn't really say anything.

    Want to get rid of Law, quit responding to him. He's a joke to begin with and anyone who deals with him deserves what they get.

    I must confess, I sometimes weaken and respond to the fool. Then I realize it just adds fuel to the fire. It's a weakness others fall prey to. Got to just learn to igonore those who really have no desire for any honest give and take.

    Respectfully I would like to remind all and sundry that the New York Times couldn't care less what folks talk about on this board, so long as the discourse is marginally civil. It's all about hits. Hits sell advertising and if the advertising dries up, you won't have to worry about the trolls, because you won't have a board at all.

    I know what you're saying. I tell people to not respond and then I sometimes in a weak moment give him (Law) a good bashing myself. This message board has gone to sh** though. There was a time where people could actually talk baseball. Whenever they changed the format I believe that it only encouraged stupid troll threads. I enjoyed this board whenever you could look at your email and actually see whenever someone responded to your post. Those were the good old days.

    The saddest thing about that is its truthfulness. They don't care. As I had said, it's a shame.

    No one is saying that everyone should think the same, only that there be civil, respectful discussion. If you happen to think the GM is doing a good job, you should not be subjected to abuse for saying so.

    which is, of course, exactly what users are being subjected to.

    This winter was particularly brutal. Good baseball threads were ruined by the same guys arguing the same positions over and over. You couldnt find a thread thru all the garbage threads that were out there. Theo chicks should be banned. Its childish and stupid. Hopefully the start of the season will clean things up, and give us a lot more to talk about. I like the way things are going so far. Pitching looks good.

    Nothing like a good offensive explosion to get Red Sox Nation into the spirit of spring training. How can life be bad when the Sox score two touchdowns?

    These msg boards are horrible all around. The boston.com domain is the slowest on the web. I have a T1 line and the page latency especially on these boards is abysmal. Don't even get me going on the clunky usability of this forum; it was relaunched not too long ago resulting in a giant step backward. boston.com doesn't care.

    So, if you want to have a conversation with a friend, someone next to you gets to yell constantly?

    Or if you're in a movie theatre, the guy behind you gets to say the same thing over and over so that you can't enjoy the movie?

    Get re-acquainted with freedom of speech. It's important.

    True, but having someone post 'Theo Chciks' and Pink Hats' 1000-2000 times is not particularly interesting either, I'd rather have 10 threads with 15 different posts in them, than 10 threads with 200 posts all saying 'Theo sucks'.

    Agree "prairiemike", and also it just might have something to do with "New York Times" which is enough to turn me off.
