Monkhouse - I never said anyone was FOOLISH...  I merely was stating my opinion that Stevens will still be the coach no matter how many Celtics fans think he should go.  Wow, that really is a terrible hurtful thing to say right?

IMO, Stevens' job is 100% secure so for those of you who foolishly think the Celtics should change coaches be prepared for Ainge to support him publicly.

Sounds a little bit different from what you're suggesting. But I don't think it was made with malicious intent.

Agree w Monkhouse. Was a bit heavy handed by Moderator but I think it was the case of a ref calling a foul before things escalated to fight and double flagrant technical ejections.

When the very first post of a thread is starting by saying if you disagree with me you are thinking foolishly, that thread will be locked immediately. It's all downhill from there

If you want to open another thread to discuss what you wanted to discuss, do so, just without the disrespectful assertion regarding the way others think if they don't agree you.

With the caveat that if thereís an active thread about Stevens, we donít really need another one.

Yeah, once the Celtics playoff run ends, I think I am going to go clean the Stevens' threads up and merge them all into one thread. I think a hundred or so Stevens' threads are fairly unnecessary

Ironically people wonít really want to talk about this more than a week from now.

I'm wondering if members of the site would be interested in being able to vote on rule changes to the site via polls. 

Much like the way Brad Stevens' implements a participatory democracy among his players we could all have a say in the direction of the site.  Seems like something that we could definitely start doing.

Do you have any suggestions for which rules you would want changed?
