    I have a huge problem with a poster - PackinMSP - starting multiple threads only for the purpose of racist trolling, and still being permitted to post here. I can't imagine I'm alone. The threads in question are "Josh Allen" and "Bucs bandwagon" (the latter now locked). They amplify previous views he's expressed here, but are far more brazen.

    I have no interest in using the ignore feature in this case. I can't imagine just going about my business talking about whether Lucas Patrick is significantly better at right than left guard, while being unaware of this kind of **** if it's going in. Like, this is exactly something I will not ignore.

    He goes, or I go, and I hope a lot of others too.

    The latest thread was locked. Mods are aware. I'm stating my position publicly.

    Took me a bit to put the puzzle pieces together, but YES....someone needs his crayons taken away from him.

    Man some rub me wrong on the forums - but always respect the different views, but not a single poster IMO has needed banning from the entire forum more than him. He makes me wish Brandon was back and him gone...that is nuts.

    To be honest, I usually dismiss threads started and posts made by PackinMSP as irrelevant. Not on ignore, just irrelevant. I had to go back and read those threads and like Pokerbrat2K I figured it out. Time for someone to grow up.

    Uffdah. I had never seen those Josh Allen threads before.

    I guess the guy wanted to make his ignorance beyond football more obvious to everybody.

    MSP, if you read this, don’t go through life that way. It’s wrong and not worth it.

    I always viewed this guy as the clown that just starts meaningless "look at me" threads. So really it has just been a case of me mentally blocking his content by not reading it. Glad you pointed it out Don, all it took was to find THESE 2 posts and read a few others and where this JackA$$'s head is, becomes very clear.

    Moderating: this situation is being discussed. I was as shocked as the rest of you. My head wasn’t looking in this direction at all. Please be patient while we rope in some of the mods.

    To be clear, I for one don't blame Mods for missing this and it doesn't sound like anyone else is either.

    I had to go back and look at the threads to put everything together. At the time I was just confused what he meant by “our team,” but now it makes sense.

    Absolutely not. I didn’t notice until he made it really obvious. I don’t see how anybody could have, tbh. Most of the time I just skimmed over his posts because he didn’t have a lot to say.

    In hindsight it’s obvious, but at the time I was just confused. Figured it was a senile old man moment lol.

    Appreciate that sentiment. We don’t have a duty schedule and quite honestly, I don’t go around looking for stuff like this. I guess I just expect posters to behave themselves.

    Chiming back in to say that of course patience and thoughtful conversation are in order, and thanks to the mods for the work they do.

    I don’t blame the mods at all.. but now that it’s out in the open, I will point out that there is no first amendment here. The forum is a privately owned entity and PackMSP does not have the right to say or feel whatever he wants. He can and should be banned.

    Yup and the system works. Barclay was obviously in tune with what this guy's agenda is and how he was pushing it in several threads. Knowing that, once I started reading through his latest ones, it wasn't difficult to connect the dots.

    Like many have expressed, I've largely been ignoring the threads that he's started because he starts so many of them and all of them seemed fairly pointless.

    But after seeing this thread and going through and reading his thoughts, I don't think there is any confusion about what he was trying to say.

    I'm sure the mods will clean all that garbage out of here.

    I'm with most of you, usually skim if I even look at anything he posts, but it was glaringly obvious after his latest posts. I don't care what happens to him, I know how I'm dealing with that garbage.

    Thank you, and I'm sorry if my thread wasn't needed - but also glad it wasn't needed.
