This thread is an ad-hoc way of tracking what threads and comments get removed. Mods that remove a thread should post the title here with a brief reason as to why the thread is gone.

NOTE: if you leave an irrelevant comment in this thread it will be deleted.

NOTE II: New Thread started.

I thought it deleted out the comments, but the old posts still appeared in the App, but new comments didn't go through. And when a brand new thread appeared with his comments I didn't think his new comments would appear after you said he was taken care of. So apparently you can only be banned from the page, not the App posts.
<br>Hmmmm...maybe you should delete all this before we give anyone any ideas...

Come on, man. This was covered on the front page yesterday.

I was dangerously close to taking away enough points that you can't start a thread anymore.

Come on, man (second time today). I'm all for being a little lenient for something college football-related, but the was the THIRD Cam Newton topic on the front page at the time of its deletion.

Put it in a different Cam Newton thread, dude.

User docked a million mgopoints (as will most Newton-related thread starters), and should probably stop spamming for his website, as well.

MGoShoe put up a couple of Michigan Today articles in which 90 percent of the editorial is from the linked article. I remember these being left alone in the past, but I don't remember if there was a reason. I bumped them to the board, but maybe would be preferable? What say the mods?


November 12th, 2010 at 12:56 PM ^ new? That's kind of how all my stuff is. A few weeks ago I did a board post about two MMB preview articles and someone (I think you) bumped it to a diary -- and all that was a series of blockquotes from the articles with minor commentary peppered within.

Admittedly those two items straddled the definitions of Diary and Forum post, but if you think Diaries have to be mind numbing statistical treatises, ok then (I know that's simplistic).

FWIW, these were supposed to be the first in a semi-frequent U-M history posts covering a variety of topics and sourced from various publications.  None of it will be very original but it will be thematically tied.  That's the sort of thing that gets lost on the MGoBoard.

And now, I submit myself to the judgment of The Mods.
