DM it's time to remove this thread. Some people are speculating and are completely wrong others are frustrated. It's over. You made the decision. Live with it. It's time to move on before this thread becomes a cancer within this board.

Meh, I think its funny people are getting their knots tied over something like this. ITS A FLIPPING MESSAGE BOARD. Nobody got fired from their job just weeks before being able to claim upper end unemployment. Nobody lost their live, they lost their privilage to have control over a message board.

I would take it as a blessing to not have to patrol a website for underaged teenagers who get some sort of pleasure trolling.

OK...enough is enough...I'm tired of this. It's time to move on and get over it. Nothing is going to change.

I have an idea..... I will ignore this thread and not read any more posts concerning this thread. Maybe all of you who feel the same way should do the same. I just want this thread to go away.

Amazing how people come into a thread and ask it be closed. What is the point? Why not just ignore it instead of clicking on it? It will eventually die its own natural death. This is really just a general comment though as it happens in all sorts of threads.

just so it's out there....it's not a secret. it's just that nobody wants it debated in an open forum. if you want to know, pm/email RD or DM and they'll tell you.

but an EXCELLENT point was raised a few posts back by sammyk. if you don't like it, don't click on it. if more of that happened, this thread and what caused it wouldn't exist at all.

Wow this was a shock for my Monday morning read. I came to this board to get away form Devil boards that got out of control with users threatening each other, disrespecting one another's opinions and saying that there is only one way to be a true Devils fan.
I am very sorry to see this big change (especially RD and Hasan) happen to this board because the admins seemed very dedicated so I'm hoping that they can still talk things out.

Are you joking? I've been mocking him for months knowing full well. I think Risky has been too.


It's hard to miss the grammatical foibles that he can't seem to shake, nor the predeliction for handle-changing. But, that's the spice of life around here, and that's what I love about NJDevs. If I can't come here to make snarky remarks about hockey and ill-informed fans, where am I going to do it? The office? People here think the sporting year is six months long, starting in August and ending with the Pro-Bowl.

I also don't know what went on with DM and the admins. I burn too many company hours here as-is, so I don't really frequent OT. It's a tough thing to comment on. I have to give DM recognition for running a time-consuming, expensive, FREE site for all of us (who sometimes are rather ungrateful, I think). In fact, I have to send him a long-overdue PayPal to that end. Anyway, this is a tough situation to comment on. Yes, it is DM's board and he has the right to run it however he sees fit. However, to lose 3 of probably our top 5 posters in ONE STROKE really, really hurts. The difference has already been felt in the absence of Rock's daily newspaper posts. NJDevs without Rough Draft? The poster who manages to be cool and refined in every post, but then cuts loose with some of the most vile sailor-talk this side of Philadelphia in the chat room? It's like I've joined a different forum. I'm glad Hasan appears to still be around. He's one of the few people here who actually has a realistic world-view of the state of New Jersey Devils hockey.

I can't comment on the fall out because I don't know what happened, but I will say this: I would trade 20 of our other posters (23 if you count Lucifer's Dog *wink wink wink*) for Rock, RD, and Hasan to stick around here. I'm glad msweet and DM are still in the mix -- they're great guys and great hockey minds.

I hope this shakes out positively for everyone involved. I will say this -- NJDevs won't lose me, no matter what this forum goes through. Go ahead, breathe that collective sigh of relief!

Keep up the good work, DM. And RD, Rock and Hasan -- please come back. You guys make this place what it is.

I have no idea what is going on... and don't care to. I go to this board to read about the Devils and debate things about them... but I always try to respect whoever I am debating with.

It sucks those posters left because I enjoyed debating with them. As for how serious I take their departures, I prefer to think the articles like "Ruff's daughter has a brain mass" show what the truly important things in life are while threads like this show how we can make things much more important then they actually are.

I hope they all return and I hope evryone chills out a notch or two. We need one good message board, not two or three mediocre ones.

Outside of several personal reasons, I've been posting less and less on NJDevs because of an overall increasingly immature atmosphere.

So now we have one of the most mature admins booted because of very immature poster(s). And I'd bet my life savings that, given the choice, the vast majority of people here at NJDevs would rather have RD back and have one or several immature posters booted.

Instead of standing up to those who constantly cause trouble, we lost the best thing NJDevs has. Instead of cutting out trouble at its root, we lost our heart and soul.

Big mistake.

During this thread, people keep saying that NJDevs is a community. Well, no offense to you DM, but I think NJDevs as a community would disagree with you if you had given them the choice. Now it all seems irreversible - what a shame. Although you have the total right to make the decisions around here, such a drastic decision was guaranteed to cause dissent. Why not do a private poll with the top 25 non-admin posters? Hell, why not do a public poll?

I simply can't believe RD is no longer a part of NJDevs and yet several rabble-rousing idiots are running rampant. Yeah maybe I'm rabble-rousing right now and some people think I'm an idiot, so I'll do you all a favor and leave as well. NJDevs wouldn't be NJDevs without DM and msweet, true, but for my money, NJDevs can never mean the same thing to me without RD. I think that, in the future, this decision will be looked back at as the worst thing to ever happen to NJDevs. I truly believe that the situation was once reversible but, with RD being "fired," we have now reached the point of no return.

Goodbye, all. To those who don't have it, my AIM name is mrsheeps. Peace
