GB10

The trolls are back! This week the great Get Baptized with 10's and Added has been infiltrated and disrupted by undesirables. I say the thread is great because it is. It is a group of about 20+ freinds shooting the bull and playing fantasy sports. It has been going strong for a couple years now. It has survived being moved to the off topic board, and it survived a summer infested with trolls. It seems all a troll has to do these days is hit this troll button on someones post and that user is labeled a troll themselves and flagged for 5 days. With no chance to challenge or appeal. I have been a member for over a year and have never received a warning. Now im labeled a troll and flagged for 5 days. Very uncool CBS. Something needs to be done about this and all the GB10 regulars should be vindicated and their warning pages cleared. What goes on at the GB10 thread is what i believe the creators had in mind when they created this community. Sports fans making freinds with other sports fans and chatting about everything that comes to mind. CBS should protect the GB10 thread because it stands for everything that is good about the CBS community.

Kudos to you Cuban!!  And long live the GB10!!
I just want you guys to know that I appreciate that you stuck up for yourselves and the GB10.
I also want you to be aware that we have friends on the "Lounge" and "Sports Entertainment" threads that really had our backs, especially Charlie.
And as for contacting the admins, you can find the "User Feedback" link on the bottom of any page here on CBS.
Also, when I come back, I will be going out of my way to ignore the trolls.  I will not engage them in any sort of way.  I want you guys to do the same.  If you see an obvious violation of CBS rules and you feel inclined to do so, use the tools provided by the administrators of this site to take care of the issue.
Thanks again guys, you are the best!!

cbs admin
i have been looking for a way to contact you regarding this invasion, but i cant find anywhere on this site where we can have a dialogue with an admin   i found cbs admin 8 who apparently handed out warnings re this situation, but there is no way to send the admin a message to appeal 
the trolls  - fleming, pacman and now fauita jones - are inciting thi behavior to our thread   you should take that into account when banning, warning regular members of a thread  -  you can tell they are good members of this community by their consistent participation over the last months/year  -  so you know they are not the problem.  it is someone new to the thread the incites this - in law it is called entrapment and illegal
my plea to you is to recognize this, re-instate all the good members and contributors recognized on this thread  and just deal with the problem - the new posters who caused all of this  dont throw the baby out with the bathwater
you should encourage the interaction of this long standing thread without harassment
and add a link to enable us to have dialogue with admins
thanks

Glad to see you guys back.  Hawks is still under the 5 day troll suspension, and the two posters who legitimately labeled Fl Fleming a troll are part of the 30 day-ban despite the legitimacy of use of the troll button,  so the Admins have a long way to go before they show me they've got things under control.  Great blog, Cuban.  Love what you said.  And kudos to the Admins for at least getting most of you back and lifting the stupid warning.  But, they are still a long way from doing their jobs correctly.  Answer me this - why will Zl Fleming be allowed back after 30 days when he's already been banned in the past for the very same kind of trolling he was doing yesterday?

Adam PM Jones gave scott and I warnings today for reminding our fellow posters about the troll button. It is my first warning the whole time i have been contributing to CBS.

I am here to echo the comments made by Cuban. I have made many friends over at GB10. We are always friendly and cordial to all who pass through, welcoming them and often inviting them to become regulars. There are many who just pop in to stay in touch after getting a feel for our thread. All we ask for in return is  fair and non combative treatment of our members and guests.
  Any well intentioned poster that has been through our thread has found it to be a good place to catch up with friends, talk sports, and spout off about our fantasy leagues. Its usually plenty entertaining, even if your just passing through.
Please, CBS, find a way to allow us to continue to enjoy your message boards, and find a better way to screen these warnings. By just allowing any warning to be upheld, you are allowing these predators to disrupt and upset the everyday activity on the threads. Good posters are becoming victims of people who "troll for trouble". Often they make a statement to antagonize a poster and anger them to a point where they are sucked into arguing with these trouble makers. Then ....BAM, they hit you with a warning, get you banned or penalized. Don't empower them! Look into each warning before delving out punishment.

The troll button is definitely out of con-troll.  The trolls are using it as a weapon against regular members.  Wake up CBS!!  The troll button was a bad idea.  Do away with it please.  The admins should be able to figure out who the real trolls are and ban them from this site.
