I was issued a warning for my recent post,
which has been deleted, entitled "Fire Butler." I described my extreme dissatisfaction with last week's performance, noting that the team did not appear well prepared by the coaching staff off of a bye week.
I have been informed that I was "issued a warning" by the editorial staff of this blog. Considering that the purpose of "fanposts" is to allow folks to opine, I was surprised that my comments were meritorious of a warning. They were not obscene and, in my opinion, surprisingly coherent for a fan of a team that just had their worst defeat in the past two centuries.
I would like an explanation from the proprietors of this blog, explaining:
(1) Specific reasons my post was meritorious of censure,
(2) Whether any other individuals (including those unable to respond to my comment by any means other than use of profanity) were censured,
(3) Whether the post was negatively evaluated because of (1) tone or (2) content, viz., that it did not appear that the coaching staff was competent, and that views questioning the current administration are prohibited, and
(4) Why the administration of this blog feels that censuring non-profane, legitimate fan posts questioning the performance of the team outweighs potential chilling effects on the discourse that SB Nation blogs are designed to promote.
Thanks in advance for a prompt response.
Ed. Note: My previous discussion apparently was not edited. Nevertheless, when you sign in to get a huge block of text advising you of a "warning," I'd like a clarification of the reasoning.
