If that's what a notable majority of the community wanted, we'd certainly consider it, but most of the demand I've heard for such comes from Bison fans.   If you scroll back up, most of the comments

They seem to be getting restless in fargo again.  Some housecleaning may be in order as it'd be a shame for this site to go the way of AGS aka bisonswille 2.0.   Short list includes jheria (should h

It seems like the Moderation team is really asleep at the switch lately, Watchmaker49 a semi-decent poster who might have skirted the line once or twice, but who doesn't, gets nuked (banned); however,

So, in essence, he was making a mockery of the board. He wasn't here to share opinions or add perspective; he was here to slash and burn for the sick fun and enjoyment that he got out of being an anonymous a-hole.

So that sentence has pretty much explained the aforementioned Trolls that haven't been nuked yet as well. As far as the physical violence, that's not good.

Welcome to the Internet where women are men, and opinions are facts. In other news, water is wet.

True, but I also said that behavior, though, unfortunate, is not enough to revoke your participation on this board. My exact sentence is below:

"That was all fine and good and would not have been enough to warrant banning, IMHO."

It's the threats that popped up recently that crossed the line.

...and I am glad he's gone.

I thought Watchmaker wasn't around because he either got 3rd degree burns from falling asleep at his pool in PHX or he pissed someone off on his way to get more Cheetos and porn DVDs and got worked over.

No one gets banned for having a viewpoint distasteful to Sioux fans.

On the rare occasion someone does get banned, its for repeatedly violating one of these rules:

Forum terms and rules

Threats and harassment, and politics and religion are pretty straightforward to interpret.

Trolling is a little more subjective -- in a discussion about the likelihood of UND getting a Big Ten invite, I don't think a Bison fan shooting it down saying he thinks it's unrealistic is trolling. I think that's debate. On the other hand, a Bison fan spamming every thread about UND football with how much he thinks UND sucks is clearly just trolling. There's a lot of space in between those two that requires subjective interpretation.

There's been a lot of discussion about this in the past that might also be informative, starting here:

So has Watchmaker's name been removed from the Roll of Honor (aka the 'member list')?

That account isn't currently welcome to post on this forum.

Roger that, I assumed that since that account no longer appears on the member list. So you're sayin' there's a chance I could move up from being forever known as member #44...

well thankfully no one here takes my posts personally because come january of each year I couldl be accused of trolling with my negativity about our favorite hockey squad.

Troling with negativity? Cmon, come January, you FIT RIGHT IN with the rest of the bunch on the board here...team has no heart, players suck, Hakstol's an idiot, we have the best arena, we have the best fans and deserve better...

It seems like the Moderation team is really asleep at the switch lately, Watchmaker49 a semi-decent poster who might have skirted the line once or twice, but who doesn't, gets nuked (banned); however, trolls like Jheria and CharliePic who are here for nothing but personal attacks and to cause problems, don’t get nuked… How is that possible? There seems to be a double standard is emerging on Sioux Sports.

Put on your big boy pants. If anyone should be banned for personal attacks it's you. I mean you once accused me of being Dave K. Can it get any more personal than that? :) I just find it humorous that you like to take shots at the education people from "Moo U" (one of your favorites) get and then you turn around and write something that grammatically might have prevented you from passing seventh grade. Pot/Kettle??? May i say that your very knowledgeable about the topics you discuss which is why I occasionally read them. Thanks for starting a thread calling for me to get nuked (is asking for me to get nuked a personal threat??) as I now feel all warm, fuzzy and appreciated. If I wanted to get personal I'd start a thread on here about people who call themselves writers but don't know a comma from a question mark, but I won't ;) Relax and ignore me (like Darell does) as it's all in good fun ;)

So, not to be a jerk, but pot and kettle occurs in your post as well: you're not your...sorry, couldn't help myself :hypocrite:

Totally deserved. Was at the 19th hole when I did that. Two shaaaay ! I don't claim to be a writer though as I just fix tractors

But you miss the point, why are bison fans on our page commenting on things of NO relevance to their athletics or institution? When was the last time a bison fan came onto this site and complimented UND? I don't know about you, but I never go to message boards of schools I have no affiliation with, let alone go there and be a Debbie Downer. It would be great to have a place to talk about UND with others who appreciate the university without seeing them.

Then you haven't read everything I've posted on here as I am a past holder of season tickets to fine hockey team that UND has. I think you miss the point too. Many of the comments/threads on this site are dedicated to things about a certain college that must have no relevance to their athletics or institution other than to make them feel better about themselves and their views. Please explain to me how this is only a place to talk about UND with others who only appreciate the the University. If that was the case there wouldn't be entire threads devoted to schools that as you say have no relevance to their institution. I have a co worker that lives in GF and is an avid UND supporter who giggles at the banter I have on here with certain individuals that will never be able to take off the Kelly Green glasses. There are some on here that get it and a certain few that never will.

can't resist the temptation to be the spell check police since you attack Goon for his grammar/spelling

it's not two shaaaay, it's touche'

back to watchmaker, his/her style was very similar to almostheavenin2011. anticipating another return under a new moniker... :whistling:
