Silly me. I thought this poll was just for entertainment purposes.
'Course, if you notice, all the Jai Lucas posts are being moved to a different forum, and not all the threads that are "the Oklahoman sux" are titled so. I'm not saying censor them, just move them to a place where they can be discussed. The "I hate the DOK" posts have about as much to do with the OSU athletics forum as the OU bashing ones. The later get moved; why can't the former? Why can't we leave the OSU athletics forum for discussion of just that?
Because we're discussing the media treatment of OSU athletics, that's why. We aren't talking about the media treatment of Duke (that would fall under general sports), we aren't talking about the media treatment of the president (that would fall under miscellaneous), we aren't talking about the media treatment of the way we hate OU (that would fall under bedlam and flame), and we aren't talking about the media treatment of selling tickets (that would fall under ticket exchange). So if you don't like those posts, don't read them!
"Is it me or did anyone else notice that the DOK had AD peterman on the front of the sports page again. They should just put his picture in the upper right hand corner and leave it for the next 20 years"
The above is a TEST. Only a TEST. If it had been an actual post about the DOK bias you would have been instructed to stop whinning, stop reading, stop buying, etc. Again, this was only a TEST !
What does it matter if its in osu sports or bedlam?! is it really that big of a deal? i feel like i'm taking crazy pills! Poke4, you were a hall monitor in high school weren't you?
I think it's time to move this to the customer service board, where suggestions belong.
Thanks for everyone's input.
I think my biggest complaint about this issue is that as a moderator, I have to read threads like these. They tend to be the ones that more people step across the line of our forum rules.
I know that the DO sucks. I just grow tired of reading about how much it sucks all the time. There are some that are overly sensitive and find slights in anything and everything. Paranoia gets a bit draining after a while.

This is pretty much the way I feel (and I don't have to try and keep up with all that's going on). I just want to read the article and discussion about what was in it rather than getting bombarded with "I hate the Oklahoman" coments every time. Sorry if my posts earlier helped blow this out of porportion. I just thought maybe if people had a place to rant, they wouldn't feel like they had to do it every time a DOK article was posted.
I had been one of the whinners but I've read so many that I don't even read them anymore.
