    We have successfully moved to the new software as a result of a monumental effort on Dawg's part and are once again open to the public which also means the prying eyes of Google etc... That all means that the forum is growing and with the growth I'm getting a few recurrent issues in my PM's and alerts that this thread will attempt to address.

    The issues:

    1. Non Stern related threads in the Stern Forum and the corollary issue of positive threads about Howard and Beth in the Stern Forum
    2. Reps and rep comments
    3. The "No Holds Barred" thread

    The responses:

    1. The Stern show is now a part time radio show, it no longer provides enough material to sustain a large forum and most of the members here no longer tune in. As a result current event threads, general interest threads and some O & A threads etc. are allowed in the Stern Forum. The two exceptions are call out threads and overtly political threads. All call out threads will either be deleted or moved to the Hoochie Bin and political threads will obviously be moved to the Politics forum. The Politics Forum is growing so don't hesitate to check it out if you like to argue politics.

    2. Reps are always a hot button issue, I'm not going to review the entire history of this issue but the rep system is operational and debugged, VIP's and Gold members may "neg" according to the parameters of their membership level. The membership voted against anonymous reps so that feature will not be added. There are only three instances where receiving an offensive "neg" is reportable to staff, if it contains personal info, illegal info or a violent threat. We had a long time member go nuts here the other day after receiving a "neg" and we had to kill his account, a stupid comment on a message board seriously shouldn't be that upsetting.

    3. The "No Holds Barred" thread was created as a place for people to air their gripes and bust balls. We did this to keep that stuff out of the general forum threads. It's not a place for the easily offended, if you are looking for a place to just shoot the shit check out Spazz's "Need a Favor" thread, lots of good conversation there. As with the reps the only reportable issues in the NHB thread are posting of personal info, illegal info and violent threats. If you post in there you do so at the risk of getting some shit in return.

    The site has an excellent Ignore feature, if the pro Stern poster or the angry guy in the Bronx irritate you, put them on Ignore and they will disappear. The site has something for almost everyone, find the things you enjoy and don't let the other shit bother you. The whole point of the site is entertainment.

    I know, Colin Powell, tl,dr etc....

    My favorite poster, who has zero to do with any of this, is the first responder, as always bringing the comedy.

    You're welcome. Probably just takes the rest of the forum 20 minutes to not read.

    I read it. In order to remain on this site, I must find out someone's real name, sell them a few pounds of coke and threaten to kill them.
    That's gonna take a while, fuck.
