Instead, they have been nice enough to let people join for free. I am sure that is what it is.

Who cares if anyone makes money off of this site? What's that got to do with anything? I hope they do make some money. They do a great job and provide a wonderful service (even if my employer doesn't think so). Once again, the origins of my financial comments was to serve as a reminder for the hidden reasons for this forum. And not to take it so damn seriously. If you want everyone to follow the rules verbatim, then create a private site and charge a membership fee. Otherwise, lighten up and move on if you don't like any particular thread instead of criticising the guy who created the thread.

outside of your opinion, do you have any evidence to support this? if so, please provide some clout to your claim. I will gladly provide clout to my claim. I found SpoFi through Yahoo! I have SpoFi included in MyYahoo! home page. Each time I bring up my home page, Yahoo! registers my visit as a hit to their site. The higher the number of hits, the more they can charge companies to advertise on Yahoo! You can also access SpoFi directly. When doing so, the main page for SpoFi has a link to Yahoo!. So it is very clear to me a financial motive exists for this forum. Without a financial incentive, there would be no link to Yahoo! nor would SpoFi be an option for the MyYahoo! home page.

Perhaps the moderators can bring to this thread lbbs comments on yesterdays deleted post. More than likely, it would level the playing field and minimize the heat I have received for defending myself. And to think this site exists for the sole purpose of discussing sports without any financial incentive is nothing more than ignorance. So again, LIGHTEN UP guys.

If you feel the guidelines shouldn't apply to you, I'm sure one of the pantheon will show you the door. I have never stated that the guidelines should not apply to me. Unfortunately, there was a post deleted yesterday in which the creator was unecessarily and harshly lambasted for initating the particular post. But prior to the posts deletion, lbb found it necessary to cut and paste my comments to this thread. In doing so, she neglected to cut and paste other comments from the thread that would have clarified my position. Lbb's actions were cowardly. get a grip. lbb pointed out something you are doing and you went at something she is. if you can't see the difference there, perhaps you don't belong on the internet. or in society. Gee, based on your comments dfleming, I guess I will be right in line behind you with everyone else who does not belong in society. I had no idea you had the power and authority to make such suggestions. The prior sentece was merely toungue and cheek but a great example of an "I am your parent" attitude. I will also state this site is full of individuals who take a snipet of information without all the facts and go right to judgement day. Very sad.

panteeze, stop the personal attacks. They violate the rules. We have guidelines for a reason and if a fellow member, such as lbb, points them out it is an attempt to be helpful. Laughable! Its not a personal attack. Its a personal defense. Did you see me taking any sniper pot shots at lbb? I don't think so? As I stated earlier, I think she is a coward and a know it all wannabe. This is merely a defense against her cowardly personal attack towards me. And you might think she is well respected, and you are entightled to your opinion. By as I am entightled to my opinion, I have zero repsect for her arrogance and cowarldy behavior. This is a forum for sports. It should be fun. I can deal with the "people" who are way to serious about the rules. I just can't deal with them when they unnecessarily jump all over others with the "I am your parent" attitude. So lbb, apoch, dfelming and any one else who shares their opinion, STEP OFF MY NUTS!

Well, we've got several cleanups in aisle 5 today, and they're not technically noobs. One in particular seems to have decided that the whole purpose of this site is to "get people to use Yahoo! and generate numbers to get maximum advertising revenue", and that therefore the rules are all a sham. Due to the cencorship in another post that has been deleted, not everyone had the opportunity to read our comments lbb. So I guess we take up our beef here. First, I find your inablility to provide my name with the comments gutless and cowardly. You seem to be a "rules obsessed person" and if rules aren't followed literally, you get bent out of shape. Last I looked, your not part of the group that founded this site nor part of the editorial and cencoring group who moderates the threads. So why do you always feel the need to reprimand everyone? When "people" (in quotes to honor lbb) have something to say at just about every post, it think they lose credibility. And lbb, you seem to have a comment on every post at this forum. Like I said in the other deleted post, I hope Santa gave you a gift card to get a life! I will use my time to worry about more pressing issues in our world and leave the petty nitpicking about the SpoFi rules to you. It appears to be the only way you can garner self esteeem.
