    Over moderation

    Lee Harvey joke too edgy for these parts? Gimme a break, people need to lighten up.

    I would point out we have a celebrity death pool, yet a joke about a death 50 years ago is over the line. Got it. Just because a couple people didn't get the joke doesn't mean it has to be deleted or whatever.

    Yeah, I still use the site for up to date Twins info..but the humor is non-existant these days. Remember how hilarious those old BYTO game threads were?

    Guys, if you want to fire up a BYTO style site someplace, we'll be happy to support it, just like we try to support independent blogs, TwinkieTown, podcasts, etc. This is not BYTO and it's not going to be.

    As for the LHO quote, it was borderline, and I didn't feel strongly enough about it to ban or even do an infraction. But on the 50th anniversary, literally to the day, of Kennedy's death, I'm not surprised that a bunch of people found it tasteless, and I don't really believe you would be surprised by that either.

    It was timely and hilarious. Nobody is saying it needs to go back to BYTO, however the occasional joke is fine and breaks up the constant arguing back and forth if Terry Ryan will spend money on free agents or not.

    i don't disagree with any of this. a post can be timely and hilarious and also still be a candidate for deletion because it's in questionable taste. And it's not like it was just me. How many comments related to it did I need to delete?

    I dont really know what you're fighting for here. Do you want me to make people, several of whom commented on it, not think it's in bad taste? There was no punishment attached to the deletion. Are you feeling cheated because people didn't see your point? If so, repost it without the Kennedy assassination reference, including the quote, and it will stay. Or do you just want a definite boundary on that for which there can be no absolutes?

    In a thread titled "Over moderation", I hope you notice the irony of this complaint.

    Instead of a cryptic attempt at humor, I suggest you go ahead and make your point. This is not a baseball thread, and discussion of the site is welcome.

    Can we get a glossary for abbreviations?
    WTF is BYTO?

    Be Your Transit Operator
    Best Young Tranny Opera
    Beer Yes Turkey Oranges
    Basset Yak Teenage Operation
    Bite Your Tiny Opening

    Some of the adults are not hip on all the preteen texting abbreviations.
