To all that are commenting about if I should or should not be allowing the SafeSport / Nate Smith subjects in the forum.

 

If you like it or not the fact that a St Louis talk show host obtained and released SafeSport documentation about Nate Smith is news. Furthermore, the fact that the biggest company in the sport cut ties with the biggest skier in the sport is news.

 

As the site admin I can not win. If I lock down the threads I am accused of censorship and if I let it ride I am accused of hosting inappropriate content. What I can do is to try to reset the tone of the conversation. Going forward any posts that are even a little off topic or that remind me of a drunk looking for a fight will be deleted. I will not hesitate to limit the account of the offenders.

 

Please stop emailing, messaging, texting and calling me about what a great or terrible job I am doing. I have tried to be polite to those of you who have contacted me but it is my job to run the site and not my job to endlessly debate how I do my job.

 

If you guys wish the conversation was more about skiing then PLEASE contribute to the threads about skiing. With some luck this will die down soon enough and we can get back to that this forum should be about.

From the FAQ

https://www.ballofspray.com/forum#/discussion/6694/the-faq-a-work-in-progress

 

Is BallOfSpray free speech?

This site is free speech with a few exceptions.

Angry and basically unfriendly posts are not allowed.

Posts that are negative toward water ski companies and products must be specific and written by the person who had the bad experience. Broad brush (non-specific) posts about how bad a product or service is are not allowed.

As owner of this site I reserve the right to delete anything I deem inappropriate. This happens VERY rarely.

This whole thing is more than a bit out of hand. Before anyone accuses me of anything - let me be 100% transparent.

 

@BoneHead, Kyle and Brenda have banned been from this forum because of posts that are outside the conversation at hand. The various other scandals and accusations do not belong here.

 

In the case of Kyle and Brenda, I communicated with Kyle a number of times last week asking him to tone it down. In my judgement he chose to not comply with my requests. I will only ask so many times.
