Complaint filed to Costerbuzz! >:(

Thursday, July 11, 2002 1:02 PM

Hello. I joined this site about 10 hours ago and already i notice alot of posts are being closed for absurd and unfair reasons. I know that the person in charge here is Jeff, and I know that after this is posted that it will so predictably be closed becasue this thread acctualy challenges the the person in charge here. When one makes a site to have fourms, shouldn't they be open to opinion and "freedom of speech?" Some of the posts that I see being closed are being closed becasue ONE person disaproves of them or feels they're "rude" or will start "bickering." Well im sorry but I think that the vast majority of the people on this site are older then 13 and can handle anything that goes on in here. Though I do think obscene and idiotic threads should be closed, the commentary that I find Jeff adds is equally arrogant and rude! I think on a site like this, people should be able to make their opinions and not have irritating "police men" running around treating them in a condecending mannor and acting as if they can do anything they want! I really like this site and value the opinions and thoughts of others and id like to hear those opinions without worrying that the may indeed be closed.

Does anyone feel the same as me?

I sure don't. You should read the TOS buddy. These get deleted because they are against the rules in the TOS. Next time before you go off and start whining just read the TOS. These forums are for anything amusement park related that doesn't violate the TOS. If you want a forum that covers it all go to thrillnetwork!

Dude, if you don't agree with some things that go on here, we aren't asking you to stay. Yes, I do understand where you are coming from but like I said before, if you do not agree, then leave. Some of us have been here for years and you have only been here for 10 hours and are already complaining? Please..........

One sentence sums this up....

It is Jeff's site and he can do what he wants with it.

Sometimes I feel that way, but I can see his point since I also run forums for another website.

Here we go again.

Why do you idiots continue to posts these topics in the forum? Oh wait I do realize why, you want attention.

I suggest you go read the TOS and if you have a problem email Jeff or one of the Mods.

Not really.

They're topics that have either.....

1) been discussed 20 times before

2) are absolutely pointless (read: "I think my park's getting a new super rollie coaster, even though it's the middle of a recession")

or

3) trail off into these silly little 'my park/your park' arguments that bore the living heck out of everyone who's sat through them before.

Welcome to CoasterBuzz. Use the search function to get caught up on topics you might have missed....with the traffic this board gets, we may have just talked about it last week.

Its seems that anyone with an opinon on this site gets attacked! Christ! I even said in my post that i like this site but its like having a police man running around and censoring everything its getting a bit pathetic and over the top. I have been reading your threads for a little over a year and find that to this day i still see peoples threads being closed for stupid reasons.

I think Jeff has the right to run the site how he feels fit (since it's his site). I actually like the moderation here. It's helps keep the garbage topics down. I've been here since the beginning and had a post or two removed. When I read other peoples posts I don't want to hear stuff like "Thats dumb, Your dumb for saying that." I want to read sensible posts from people who can back up what they say when they disagree wits another poster.

Most of the topics that are deleted here are pointless or have just been posted recently. Read the terms of service. for more info. Jeff doesn't want "best, worst" topics they are basicly pointless and don't add anything to the site. I think the best thing to do when you join is to just read topics to see what flies then post if you have somthing to say that will add to the topic. It makes the fourms a better place.

There are alot of other coaster fourms on the net that are less moderated. They might be better for some people. I happen to like it here. I'm not a moderator here either.

Here's a thought...if you went to a restaurant, and you didn't like the way it was managed, would you go back? No, you wouldn't, because it costs you money.

Shouldn't a free site that causes you to be dissatisfied be handled in the same way? Just because it's free for you to waste bandwidth doesn't mean that you should waste your time here if you don't agree with the TOS.

I am about as "Bizzaro Jeff" as one can get on the site yet I've been here for way over 2000 posts. Why? Because I've learn how to say "You suck!" without saying "You suck!" Once you maser that art, you can disagree with impunity.

By the way Hercules is an awesome roller coaster!

Danmit, here we go again...This is Jeff's site, you aren't going to change that. Therefore, things go by his rules. He isn't leaving, so you better if you can't go by his rules. You say there is freedom of speech, ha, there is no such thing. You can't go on TV and say S*** without it getting bleeped out. The same applies here, if it goes against Jeff's TOS, you can't say it. Jeff built this site, Jeff pays the bills. Nothing will change by your little post.

If I made a forum site I'd want it run the way I wanted it. If people didn't like it they wouldn't have to stay.

I don't feel the same as you. Although some people here may.
