Well I have personally seen Jay Adams and James H both logged in and active on the forums, so I am assuming that they are completely ignoring my PM about the whole incident with no response.

Yep, I was IP banned after the vikings trolls a few years ago, I was bumping old threads for a few hours to move the vikings porn off the main page cause the mods were asleep then the mods pm'd me to stop and I asked them if they were going to actually clean up the boards and then blamo ip ban in seconds, which is silly cause trolls can last there for years without even a temp ban.

You would think that being the "official" message board of the Atlanta Falcons, any PR representatives of the Falcons, including the people running the site and things would want to make sure that all fans have a positive experience on the forums. They shouldn't be worrying about hits on the forums. That tells me there is something very, very broken going on over there. Something seriously needs to be addressed if that's the case. People shouldn't be wanting to stay away from the Falcons internet community because of bad experiences on their forums.
It's been that way forever. Swanlee is right -- they literally will protect trolls to the bitter end but if you complain, they ban you.
I'm convinced the "unforgivable sin" over there is questioning how the mini mods moderate the board. I'm convinced of that because of several PM conversations I've had with more than one of them. Some are worse than others, but there is a mentality among some of them that they were beat up in the sandbox too much when they were kids so they have to lord their mini mod status over other people. And it's pretty sad.
I actually had one tell me to stop questioning moderating decisions publicly. And yet they ban good, long-term posters for not realizing a swear word wouldn't be masked but let Julian St. Clor make "jokes" about burning Jews in ovens. It's just absolutely ridiculous.
My guess is if Arthur Blank knew what went on there, he'd crack skulls over it. But he's too high on the letterhead, and as it is the entire thing is run by three monkeys fucking a football, so it won't change.

Well, when you are insulted it is human nature to respond to defend yourself and that will increase the post counts. If you are a shameless marketing weasel on AFMB, you see that as a good thing.

awesome,...told an admin to go away troll. I like that.
People in mod positions are usually jokes. They take sides, ban someone because they're not going along with the crowd. Been there done all this through the years on many MB sites.
Here's the fact of the matter,...almost every Falcons fans only message boards are filled with the most stupid, the most ignorant fans in the country. I could list them but it's not something to do or I'll get banned here.lol
Too bad some people get a title and some sort of power over a site and become,...batman.
