Well this is annoying now I'm getting political text messages. I thought I was getting away from the election season barrage by streaming tv and cutting out landlines.

I was skimming across threads yesterday and saw one about old white men.  I read a few posts and left with a sour taste. I 110% support the folks  I voted for.   I'm voting for them again and we better get our guy elected  (Georgia) tomorrow or I will be one angry old white man........

My dad passed away this morning. Yesterday morning he had a heart attack.  At the hospital the doc said he had congestive heart failure, fluid on lungs, low BP, low oxygen level, and kidneys failing.

Wanted to thank all for your thoughts and prayers these past weeks. My father passed peacefully early this morning. The picture is how I will choose to remember him. Sent from my SM-A102U using MyGol

Most of these hot topic threads and political posts are coming from guys who don’t even play golf anymore.If golf isn’t your thing anymore.Or you can’t play.Than why post here

The entire forum seems to be changing.  Less equipment talk.  More complaining about golf and life in general.  Really off-putting.


I try to avoid the negativity and complainers, but the crap is leaking into general golf discussions and it's very frustrating.

Couldn't agree more with Joe here....wish this could be pinned to the top of the page so every single person sees it.

I have found it best to live by the basic three rules of life:

1.   Never pee into the wind;

2.  Do not play poker with anyone that has the first name the same as a city or state; and

3.  Try to avoid discussing religion and politics.

It's not even just the religion and politics stuff.  Some people do nothing but complain about golf equipment, other golfers, etc etc.  It's like they don't like anything about the game and have nothing better to do then complain about it to a bunch of strangers on the internet.  And the problem is it is not confined to one thread that I can simply ignore.  It seems to rear its head in almost every single thread about golf or equipment and it's exhausting.

I'd say this about the shift of things. I think it was a small group of people who have now expanded out and feel more brazen because we, as a community, let it slide a bit, instead of getting the mods and supervisory folks involved at the jump. The problem is that we're normally so good about self-policing this stuff that no one wants to be the bad guy and drop the hammer. I'll be honest, after seeing those who expose their ass with some of this stuff, a swift block for them makes my life a lot better. Remember you have that and don't get into the fight. Make friends and conversation with those who you do. Don't let the negative bog you down.

I'll just say this, we will always have different opinions on politics and religion. This is just a fact of life. X will have different views than Y. And just because X has different views than Y, doesn't mean that they can't be friends and at the very least, they can be civil toward one another, and not tear each other down. We are on a GOLF forum, not a political or religious forum, therefore any and all political and religious or generally inflammatory  comments should be off limits.

I have also noticed this and it has kept me from reading a ton of threads and even kept me from looking on here as much as I normally have.

I think this is the case.  As  relatively new MOD's this past year, Enrique and I wanted to tread lightly and not upset too many apple carts as you said, the community generally does a good job of that.  But what you guys don't have is the power to delete/suspend and or ban members for inappropriate posts.    And Stud and I kind of left more of that to GolfSpy_Meyer and Barbajo.

With some recent staff changes, we are taking on a larger role on the forum.  if we see the tenor of some of these posts that are not in concert with the sites moral codes, then some of the violators may suddenly find they can't post.  We don't like to be heavy handed in the way things are done, that's what makes this such a great community, but as Barbajo says, "we don't have many rules here" so if they can't be followed, we'll take the appropriate actions.

Now anyone want to rant about the rain today and the shorter day light hours....I'm all ears!!

The moral codes is one thing, but driving a topic about a specific club or other golf discussion off the rails because someone wants to get on their soap box about prices, or marketing, or whatever is what is really driving me crazy.   

 

Being a mod isnt easy and you guys have been doing a great job - but I just wish there was something we could do about the people that continually drive equipment or golf threads off topic with their complaints/rants.

Man, don't get me started on rain. The last 17 days, 5.22 inches of rain recorded and the white stuff shows up this weekend. Not a ton though, just an inch or so.

Yep, noted on the off topic derails.  It's something we haven't been very adamant about, as you know owners of other places took that to an extreme, but it's something we will certainly keep an eye on.  And our inbox is always open, if something is happening in a thread we haven't been in.  There's only a couple of us right now, so we are surely to miss some things that are going too far off topic.

I think we have all been guilty of this; I know I have and in fact probably pissed a few people off continually trying to explain my position on a topic. I have tried to temper my responses to say there are many ways to approach something but here are my thoughts.


@golfspy_rob, I hate the time change and the rain because it doesn’t let me practice chipping and pitching after work. My short game is in desperate need of help so I need some new equipment, lessons, a fitting, or something. maybe I should just quit the game. [emoji12]

Well, ever since the town I live in had a flash flood storm created by 9 inches of rain in 3 hours earlier this summer, and made NBC Nightly News for the resulting flooding, everything after that seems manageable, but definitely more a PITA.  We have litteraly had zero golfers walk through the doors today, check out this IG post from our restaurant door this morning. 

 

But it's been a nice and quiet day to alternate getting some MGS time in and work done.

Not adding kerosene here.But if you are quitting this great game. Or have quit and haven’t played in years. Either an injury or life issues related. Than maybe find another forum that fits your needs and likes. Leave this forum for guys who are still playing and enjoying the grind . Not being harsh , just my 2 cents . I just find it odd that non golfers post here. And post quite frequently

Yeah, I don't think we have to go THAT extreme, but I look at the forum as a place to discuss equipment and experiences with different clubs and fun on the course.  When people do google searches for equipment, they are often given results that contain forum threads.

If a new person clicks on a google search result link and they find a thread on MGS about a specific club and then 4 posts into the thread it turns into a debate about costs/modern technology sucking/etc, than that person is likely never to come back to the MGS forums and MGS loses a potential community member.

I know I found the MGS forums this way, but the forums in their current state (outside of the awesome forum member testing threads), are more likely to drive someone away from ever joining our community.

Actually, I love what you bring to this forum.  Like me, you attempt to snuff out BS and mis-information ASAP by presenting factual information.  There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that.
