I'm a moderator on Disc Golf Course Review, and it's a classic damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Every day somebody complains about a post, and you have to decide if you are going to leave it or delete it or lock the thread or whatever. You for sure know that whatever you do you are either going to tick off the person who made the post or tick off the person who complained. Every time I lock a thread or delete a post there are people who think I'm trampling on free speech and have gone too far, and others who think the whole thread should be deleted and I have not gone far enough. Pretty much the only given is that I'm making somebody mad.

Really, all message boards work off the same principal. Don't be a douchebag. You can create a whole set of fancy long-winded rules and regulations, but in the end it boils down to that. If you can keep that in mind these things are great tools to keep information flowing.

Unfortunately they are more often used as places to complain and argue. They are not great tools for that. A lot of people don't understand the difference between asking "why was the payout so low?" and posting "that payout sucked!" So people get mad and yell and scream at each other through the keyboard and you end up with rules and some poor moderators stuck in the middle of it.

Really, this is simple. Before you hit "submit" read what you wrote and think "do I sound like a douchebag?" If you do, delete it and start over. Those are really the only rules you need.


don't mean to throw this thread off course, but who are you on DGCR??????
Are YOU the d-bag who swiped all four of the putters I left at White Birch?

Disc up,
Here are some suggestions to help to keep from sounding like a "ducebag". :lol:
1: Never post anything in anger.
2: Put your post in a word document first (the spelling should be checked by Word), then you can reread your post before it goes online to make sure that it is a intelligent post and worded the way you want it.
3: If your post was written when you were angry or mad, take a chill pill, wait 20 minutes and then make any corrections that you want to change after you have given yourself time to think about it.

Is this a great country or what?

Just remember……It takes a mighty big dog to weigh a ton :!: :?:

Most (updated) web browsers have auto-spell check already in it. If you see a squiggly red line under it, then you can right click it to see suggestions. Easy as pie.
