One of the mods is a Broncos fan?! Did Slow finally give up on the Brownies?

But I still balk at the deletion of posts simply based on their stupidity or anger. We as posters should take those people to task and make them give reasons and facts for their ranting. Deleting it from up top seems too "Big Brother" for me.
Thanks for the response.
I think ynot's comments go to the heart of the issue. I also balk at deleting posts, but sometimes the stupidity or anger reaches a level where it becomes necessary. On the stupidity side, for instance, we occasionally get spam posts ("Now YOU TOO can be part of the chain mail experience!!!") masquerading as football information with titles like "Important Priest Holmes News!" Nobody comes here to have to wade through that sort of thing, and I'm sure nobody would argue with deleting a post like that.
The mods always show great restraint in removing posts or threads (and I feel that their judgment is excellent), but sometimes, it's simply necessary. In this case, the decision was the correct one.
And while it should probably go without saying, let me reassure you that no post has ever been removed due to team bias...
