Beaty begins by praising Zenger profusely. Either Beaty fears for his own job security (which Zenger controls at the moment), or he recognizes the pressure that Zenger himself is under which owes in part to Beaty's lack of progress thus far.

Do you think so Joe? A football coach who has gone 1-14 has concerns about his job tenure? Wow. That is some amazing insight. And his boss might be stressed too? No way! Who would have ever concluded that without your help..

I'm sure that fact that he was praising Zenger had nothing to do with the fact that Zenger is the one that decides what capital improvements to make. Nada..

Next to the earth shattering revelation that Italian wine is actually imported, this might be your most poignant analysis yet.

Keep us posted on Perry Ellis and his impending $94 million contract. The same one Harrison Barnes has, because you're sure they're the identical player.

I'm not a Joe Ross defender, but your response is way out of line. Why? Why post it? It has nothing to do with anything on here but a personal attack. I don't know the full history between you two, but this just seems senseless. I enjoy reading the comments and occasionally posting, but comments like these have no place on here. So Joe's comment may not seem earth shattering. So what? It doesn't necessitate a personal attack like this.

I'll try to provide something more poignant like this gem of yours in response to Joe.....

"Oh, stop drinking the koolaid, Joe! Couldn't it have been a post-season game? Or, if it was only held one day later it would have actually been on her birthday. That would have made it even more special. But then it wouldn't..... Oh, nevermind. ;-)"

ATTN: LJW staff.

A while ago, there were terms and conditions that those who were granted profiles here had to agree to in order to use the site. I checked today and could not find those. Nevertheless, presumably more recently the LJW required users to use "real names" associated with their accounts, with the expressed goal of such action being to reduce juvenile behavior that often results from anonymity. It seems consistent with your own policy that behavior which persists in an acrimonious manner would be discouraged whether anonymity were the precipitating factor or not. Consider the LJWs rules for message boards:

"Board Rules...if you become a consistent problem for us, our site's other users or our message board's administrators and moderators, we can and will ban you from using this free public service...Responsibility for what is posted on the KUsports.com message boards lies with each user. You alone are responsible for the material you post. By using our message boards, you agree not to post any defamatory, abusive, obscene, sexual, threatening or illegal material, or any other material that infringes on the ability of others to enjoy KUsports.com..."

It is my hope that you will encourage the responsible use of your own public forum, which has offered a great deal of enjoyment to many, while leaving room for healthy debate and playful or witty banter, but at the same time taking action against behaviour which is both persistent and noxious to the goals you express in other parts of this website's community.

Sincerely,

Joe Ross

If you don't like your comments responded to, don't post them.

If you don't want your ideas scrutinized, don't post them.

A post with your own ideas seems to be extremely offensive to you.

Perhaps your own blog would suit you better. You would be free to express all your ideas without fear that they might be challenged, countered or debunked. Your could be the moderator!!!

Best of luck finding a bubble for your thoughts Joe. A discussion forum does work that way.
