    EarlJam is gone

    Not only is his post gone, he is. He is not listed in the members list anymore. His last post count was at 4,371. He is listed as "On Holiday" on his posts that remain.

Getting infracted (is that a word?) and sometimes banned also upset him. He asked that those that email with him to continue doing so.
    He knew the rules (as all of you guys do) and he got what he asked for...

    I didn't see anything offensive in his final post. It might have been critical, but everyone has to take criticism at times, even mods. You wouldn't be able to do good jobs if you didn't. If my boss fired me everytime I criticized him, I would have been out the door looooong ago. And often.

    While I haven't received any infraction points, yet, I'm sort of feeling the same way EJ does in terms of leaving the board. I don't dare write any criticisms, but will say I have been frustrated with some things going on and am not sure the neighborhood pub vision that was intended for the board, is shared by all on the board.

    That's understandable. Not everyone is going to happy posting in the same place. Fortunately, there is a facebook group of which most of the frequent OTB posters are members. We would encourage you to gather there for discussions that might not fit the DBR mold.

    Well if that's the way the mods feel, maybe I should go!

    What SupaDave is alluding to is that EJ asked for the ban, the mods did not ban him. EJ asked me to pass that along to ya'll.

    So here I go through my TuTh classes this morning, and do a quick check of things afterward, and look what I find. I have but ONE question:

    What in the world is Omicron Persei 8?

    First Fight Club, now this.

    DiK, don't let Sue's absence prevent you from venturing east. Brunchgates will be going strong. And let me know how many Kansas tickets you'll want for our game there (via PM).
    My only hope is the 10/3 game at Cal, I mean home vs VT.

    Won't know for a while though.

    I'm not trying to suggest you shouldn't post on the DBR. I'm just saying that some of the more fanciful topics that have been showing up on the OTB over the last 6-8 months that end up getting deleted or closed might find a better home on the facebook group.

    So how far off-topic is too off-topic for the off-topic board?

    Think of a box. A sand box if you will. Thinking outside the box is okay. Burning the box and dancing around naked is near the edge of too far.
