Can anyone shed some light on the LB Williams thread that was deleted from this message board??? I've been on this board for about three years now and I've never seen a post let alone an entire thread be deleted. Any info is welcome.

An unsubstantiated rumor by someone who has never posted on the board before was the reason it was deleted.

I suppose technically you could call me that. I set the board up years ago after the old Marist board shut down. It's more just to be a gathering place, that's why nothing fancy. I tend to be very hands-off, but this most recent posting was a bit too far with nothing to back it up.

caller. Thanks for your vigilance. I do hope that particular unsubstantiated rumor is untrue. Maybe some troll just trying to stir things up over here?

What I posted last night is true..I have been on campus and found out it is true. Ask the students. It is a blog, posts shouldnt be deleted if they are true.

caller, whats with the quick chop? If it was nonsense then allow the truth to evolve, no? There have been much worse rumors posted here prior. Each one ran its natural course. This deletion smells pretty bad. This is a rag-tag blog in a lot of ways but it always had integrity. I guess that just changed.

Because coaches who take a scholarship away from a player better have reasons other than talent reasons. And hopefully coaches who do such a thing sit down with that players parents and look them in the eye and say, "yes maam, I am treating your child like crap and taking his free education away because I want to win". From everything I have seen, the Marist coach would not do this. So, hopefully we see Lawrence Williams on the court next year.

Thanks CT. I'll take that into advisement. And as you said, things have been allowed to run longer... if the original poster has at least one prior post. This poster had never posted before and was making a comment out of nowhere on a "hey I was on campus" as his evidence. What you take from that is your choice. Most of the posts were fine - but when you delete one post, all posts the follow it in the thread are deleted too. Otherwise, those would have remained.
If you want to convince OF or someone else to take control of the board, or if you wish to start your own, feel free. I'm sorry that you feel that one deletion in five-plus years ruins the "integrity".

No prior posts? Theres no log-in requirement. How can you monitor and scrutinize posts? Obviously some joker could use the name "yankee" and post til his hearts content and not be our "yankee". You care enough to delete post but you dont care enough to require registrations. That seems a little contrary. It just seems like a strange time to give a crap.

There's a simple item on the owner page that allows the owner to search all IP's of past posts. If you don't like how the board is run, you'll receive a full refund.

Your inquiry is considered your filing. You get a full refund with no strings attached. Just a 10% administrative fee.
