No kidding. I thought it was pretty innocent. Sure, a bit of a post padding thread, but it's very popular on the other side so why lock it? :-?

I think the slurs and racial remarks locked it up.

I enjoyed the thread though..give it a second chance. O:-)

What slurs and racial remarks? It was a great thread... random stuff, that's what General Talk is all about, right?

yeah i agree.... i was curious myself...how dare you teddy for thinking negative about our random random random :-b ...i liked it personally...who really cares about post padding...i enjoyed reading alot of stuff in there... if you're thinking about post padding, isnt the entire GT forum post padding in all reality considering its not about fantasy baseball?

There's a difference between seeking advice or constructively conversing in GT and telling the world your farts smell in a random talk thread. Granted, I did post in that thread, but still, I understand why that sort of post-padding isn't allowed.

I would agree with this, if they didn't allow the exact same thing to happen on the light side. As someone said it turns into a chat room at night over there, which is more post padding then what ours was.

Really? It's a fantasy baseball message board, this isn't a job interview. I'm not putting my FBC post count on my resume, the entire General Talk forum is for post-padding.

I don't understand why the FFC can have on of these random threads and we can't. The last thing discussed from what I remember was Fireball Talking about preparing a Mahi Mahi he caught. Didn't really have anything to do with farts.

I'm sometimes concerned that things here are taken a little too seriously.
