We aren't allowed to ban new posters who link their websites then. Its viable information to what they make as their thread title.

Please see that the rules are changed to show this.


Thanks Basel.



Or one of you could actually speak up for once when it comes to EH.

Re: MLB seeks to suspend A-Rod, Braun 100 games

New posters who come here for the SOLE PURPOSE of spamming their blog are banned IF they don't like back to us. We ask them to link back, and when they do, they're allowed to post their blog.

EH is nearing 25,000 posts on BBF. Nobody is worried that he's trying to spam a website. If you can't see the difference, I don't know what to tell you.

Your act has gotten really old. Not sure what your agenda is, but get over it. Thanks R-Star.

My act? Sorry that I actually post what many others find wrong with this site. Or is there not a direct quote on page one saying how pathetic EH's link makes the site look?


So you're coming out and directly saying EH can link to whatever self serving site he wants, because he has seniority here.

Not only that, but when someone makes an actual thread about the topic, EH can merge his own bogus thread to have his bullshit link at the top of the page to keep getting hits.


That's what we're doing now is it?

We aren't supposed to be as I've lectured people until I'm blue in the face. People have always been allowed to link to their personal blogs. People have always been allowed to link to stories on blogs. Period. End of story.

The funny part is that the site you're accusing me of "re-routing traffic to" is a ****ing Yankee fans site and has zilch to do with me. I first heard of them when the Melky Cabrera story broke. So when they released the second list of names, I posted a link to their story on the matter. Just like people post links to stories, twitter posts, etc. every single ****ing day.

So we aren't talking about when you had the site re-rout everyone to your personal website a while back?

Or did that not happen now?

He can absolutely link to wherever he wants since he didn't link to anything he shouldn't be linking to. Get that through your head and stop trying to stir the pot.

If you hate so many things about the forums, nobody is stopping you from posting here.

I honestly have no clue what you're talking about. BBF has never been (from what I remember - maybe I wasn't posting at the time) been redirected to his site.

It would be nobody is making you post here. What you wrote makes no sense.


If you're fine with the pathetic status quo, I find that extremely funny.

Are you referring to the vast collection of gifs used here that were being stored on my personal server? Because that wasn't re-routing traffic anywhere. I also host Keaf's personal website and he went a while without updating it and it got hacked. As a result everything sharing the same IP got tagged with the malware warning (including the BBF gifs directory there). At the time we couldn't figure out what the problem was because all the sites I watch over were updated and secure, it took me a few days to figure out what had happened.

It was a year or two back. Multiple people posted about being re-routed to a website, which turned out to be his that he used to try and pimp out on news stories around here.

You were here. You were probably just away from the site during that period.

As per usual, it was swept under the rug.

Yea. That's completely viable.

You can ask him if you'd like.

That's ok. It completely makes sense that the website re routing people to the website you've shilled for hits in the past is completely on Keafs shoulders.

Makes sense.


But I digress. On to the status quo of letting EH do whatever he wants. There's a lot of complaints about VS, but hey, at least you don't have to worry about the site closing down due to shit like this driving posters away.

There was no re-routing anywhere, just the Google warning coming up because a lot of the gifs that we were using were hosted on an IP address that also hosted an infected site. So we essentially moved them off of my server and onto TinyPic and other places.

There was re-routing, as people were making posts complaining about being re-routed to a bizarre website (your website).
