Why Do I Pitch
I enjoy going back and reading responses to my thread(s), however my thread dated 3/10 "Why Do I Pitch" has been removed and I would like an explanation why?

Thank you,

Rod - You may blame your fellow posters for ignoring, after 10 warnings in other post removals, this Message Board policy:

The Why Do I Pitch Message Board thread was removed today due to posting content detrimental to the best interests of the Senior Softball community. We apologize once again that otherwise meritorious content was lost due to the inappropriate postings of others. Please consider if what you are about to post to an existing Message Board thread might cause that entire thread to be removed.

Your's was one of several threads that were required to be removed today for the same reason.

to the SSUSA staff, why does the whole thread have to be removed?Why can't you just remove the offending party, you know, like a time out, go sit in the corner, two weeks detention, something like that. It seems to me that every once in a while you have done that in the past, either that or some of the offending parties must have gone on vacation. All that happens now is certain individuals are allowed to post the words that ruin it for everyone else. Just kick them off for some period of time. And after three such infractions, you could send them away for good.

Hey Don,
This point of removing the entire thread
is like judging a spelling B by throwing
a hand grenade at anyone who misses a word.
Why not just eliminate the offender(s)
from posting?
That would be a lot more accurate and fair
and grown up.

Interesting comment since you might very well lead the board in being the cause of thread removals.

The decision to hold the whole class accountable
for what one or a couple of offenders do
is "high school" at best.
It's unfair and breeds resentment
for the perceived abuse of authority
by those in control.
SSUSA can change existing rules
simply and rightfully
as they can create new ones.
It seems they would have us believe
that there's something untouchable about
decisions they have made which affect
us adversely and/or that we should all just
roll over and take it lying down.

As far as I can tell SSUSA is neither a democracy, a publicly-held corporation, a governmental agency, or the only game in town.

Hence, they are completely free to do whatever they want so long as it is not in violation of any laws of the land. And I don't think the PPR qualifies as a violation.

Good God, you have been heard (ad nauseum) and apparently disregarded.
