Once again I've been wrongly accused of editing members posts and banning members.  I'll start this new topic in order for those who are making these claims to support their accusations.

I am not editing any members posts nor am I changing anyone's posts.  I have no idea why pabar and keepinitreal are making this charge against me.  I've asked for an example or an explanations as to why they keep repeating this inaccurate statement but they refuse to provide one.  I cannot ban members from this website and I cannot remember the last time I ever deleted or edited a post, outside of some spam threads that popped up.  If I did, it had the "f" word in it.

I challenge those who keep calling me out to explain what they believe I am doing and provide some substantiation for making this unfair accusation.  For some odd reason this lie continues.  Maybe they're simply trying to get under my skin but I thought giving them a thread to make their case was in order.

I pointed out how you had, on at least one occasion, edited one of your own previous posts.  You admitted to it.

pabar - Please explain what you mean and why it was troubling.  Did I correct a spelling error?  What did you find sinister?

Many members go back and add to their posts later.  Keepinitreal does it often.  I try to use "edit" when I do that.  I'm curious as to what happened and what the content was that caused you to remember this as troubling.

It happened a long time ago and i don't remember the exact situation.  I don't have days on end to search for it.  I know it was more than correcting a spelling error but even if it was, I find it sneaky to edit a post rather than post something new saying "I made a spelling error".  I have an accounting background so maybe that explains my viewpoint but when you edit a previous post, you essentially destroy the audit trail that would allow readers to see the history of a conversation.

If I were the moderator, I would ask that people not edit previous posts and instead include the previous post in a new one that explains what changes are being made.  When you edit a previous post, you start on a slippery slope.  Are spelling changes ok?  How about grammatical changes?  How about sentence structure?  How about deleting words that in your opinion don't have relevance?  How about mistakes in presentation of facts? Etc, etc.

This has the potential to be one of the all-time silliest threads.

Some boards automatically show if a post has been edited, when, and how many times. They don't track changes made, but you'd know immediately if it was edited. Beyond that I addressed this a while back and see no need to go there again. I know what I know.

mikec - The hints continue that I'm doing something sinister behind the scenes.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Simply thought I should confront the accusations in a focused thread.  If you're going to make charges, have the guts to back them up.

When people don't like your politics, the next step is to accuse you of being a cheat, a liar, dishonest, and out to destroy the Country as well as this forum.  I think these are all cheap shots and if anyone thinks something odd is going on in our forum, address it here or stop with the unfair accusations that I'm deleting posts and forum members.  While I do have the ability to edit other member's posts in the Misc forum, I repeat, I do not have the authority to ban any members.  And I'm doing neither.

Dewy, on the other forum you called me a stalker, I let it slide.   You have no idea what a real stalker is capable of and your hyperbole is nothing but more of your hypocritical nature.  I reply to probably 1 of 10 of your posts, you like to stretch the truth as you have shown throughout your history of love for obama.  You have stated if obama bashing would stop, you would stop.  Isn't that a form of censorship.  If obama had leadership qualities the bashing would stop, see how that goes?

I understand how and why you don't like labels, quit making such effeminate posts and you will not be accused of being effeminate, I am not stalking you, I stalk only the truth.   I have noticed several such names and labels used by you in an attempt to silence those you disagree with, you continuously quote me without stating the source of your quote. 

Yes I edit my posts, if I edit within 5 minutes I will not use an [edit:] in my edit, any longer than that,  I generally  [edit:] as dewy described.   Someone want to quote me there's a feature for that also.

p.s. I responded to the thread topic from terpalum, referencing moderators, somehow you loosely throw out stalking, grow some son

full disclosure, Our buddy joisey guy is probably the most prolific editor of the forum without the [edit:].  He just simply adds to his posts as he sees fit.  p.s.,p.s.s,p.s.s.s etc... What's the big deal?  dewy, mistitled the thread because thread deletions was the subject from the softball forum.  Others, including pabar and FIB had the problem with dewy's editing of posts, follow along now, I know you're slow, kindergarten teacher and such.

The subject was the subjectiveness of the moderator as he sees fit, as long as you lean on him for your heavy lifting, you're ok without quality contributions.  I know what's between your legs masare, it's in doubt about the moderator

Real - You are correct.  I do use "PS" quite a bit, as another thought often crosses my mind after I've finished my main post.  To separate the idle thought from the main post, I could write another one line post, but "PS" seems more appropriate to me.  None  of the "PSs" are actual edits.  

PS  - How bout them Gators !!!

That's generally what I do joisey when I want to ADD to my original thought.  I will EDIT for grammar and punctuation after reading it.    

I have removed posts that I only want certain people to see and for just a short time, that is my prerogative.  I am especially sensitive to posts that I make that do not represent the original intent, implied or otherwise, of the author of the thread or those that I consider hijacking, by myself.  I have removed some over the top posts concerning dewy believe it or not.    

Again, I will stand behind what I write, if someone wants to quote me over something I say then do it.  What bothers me is dewy quoting me on several occasions and then not crediting me with his accusation, quote or finger pointing.  

Say what you mean and mean what you say, got that masare?

P.S.  I'm down with the Gators, I saw Tim Walton several times at and around my DDs tournaments.  One of our outfielders was recruited and played for Walton for a year before she transferred to Texas A&M.  Alligator chomp

p.s.s. joisey I have also seen you ADD to your posts in the middle of paragraphs where you DID NOT employ the p.s.  full disclosure

I think it's clear we all make grammatical changes or add thoughts to a post moments later.  I don't think anyone has a serious problem with these tactics and I wouldn't understand why if they did.  However, keepinitreal made a much more serious and mostly inaccurate accusation...

"Dewy deletes and amends posts and threads and has taken an active role in those who are banned from the site."

The purpose of this thread was to defend myself from this unfair accusation and ask for specifics behind the charge. He might even be implying I amend the posts of others.  I'm not sure.  Pabar recently made a similar charge that I was deleting and changing my own posts, and you can all read ForeverInBlue's "I know what I know" comment as if we're to maybe read something into this.  Needless to say, these three don't like my politics and I'm suggesting they're looking for an avenue to take an easy and cheap shot.  I thought a dedicated thread was in order to put an end to the innuendo and offer up a place for them to either substantiate these accusations or to drop their claims.  You all can determine if I've been successful.

I vote, unsuccessful

dewy, you have removed threads and or/posts, of others.   It's true

How can you prove something was deleted?  Then when someone needs to quote you [to get you on record] then they are then stalkers.  You're such a pud

It's not true, outside of spam and a couple of PGP posts way back in the day and, at the very least, you could try and substantiate, (hopefully at the time it supposedly happened), by repeating, or paraphrasing, what I said that got deleted.  There are enough of you here to catch me in the act if such action were taking place.  It's unfortunate you find a need to keep this charge going put I'm limited in what I can do to prove you're deliberately making false accusations.

dewd, you brought the conversation over here. I made a remark on a softball forum thread and you made a thread about it on the misc.  Cool idea but wow.   WOW! You're the one keeping it going.  It was brought up and as you admitted here, you did it.

  you admitted it right here and there were others..  They aren't here any longer to speak for themselves.  Why don't you quit while you are ahead?

masare - Thanks.  I'm reminded of the not so wise words Seabiscuit said long ago about getting a kick out of putting things out there just to see if he could get people riled up.  No doubt this is likely what's happening here but since kiir jumped over to the softball side to make his charge for all to read, I felt an obligation to respond.  I care about my reputation and I care about what UCS members may think of my actions in this forum.  I would have put this new thread over on the softball side, (doubt many will come here to the misc forum to read my defense), but the last thing I wanted to do is carry what goes on here into their forum.   

Btw, I hear other members say you can't delete posts and they are out there for those who want to find them.  I won't hold my breath.

I saw a thread over there where a poster is ssying another team's players are going to be arrested and charged with felonies.

The level of vitriol and hate spewed, members vs members, in all of those Stanford threads, were the essence of brotherly love.

Of course, there was also the "i'm drooling over some of these girls" was a peach too.

Yeah, the "softball side" is a warm and friendly place.

that's what happens when you 'chrismatthews' down your leg

p.s. I've laughed at the softball forum since 3leftturns said this forum was the children's table.  I ended up taking a liking to 3leftturns [even though he may be a white, male, liberal] and laughing my ass off at the vitriol on the softball forum

p.s.s. I stalk the softball forum and refrain 90% of the time

p.s.s.s there is a "mine is bigger than your's" mentality on the softball forum that entertains the hell out of me.
