OK, let me get this straight...
TW'd better start watching his "P's" and "Q's" from now on... or else.
Right?

You know, I'm not really sure what "P's" and "Q's" are,
but I have a sneaky feeling I'd better start watching them, closely.

Anyway, many thanks to you, Lord Adminman of Kaneohe,
and to your merry band of Men in Tights. "Tight Tights!"

(Sorry, I just finished watching Mel Brooke's historical and factual biography of
Sir Robin of Loxley from Hallamshire, Sheffield, England... for the 153rd time.)

Can you make out who is the adminman (check for the huge "guns")
and which ones are his trusted mod's?

As one of the Knights who say Ni (Knights who say Ni would kick Robin and his men in tights any day!) I must give most of the credit to the awesome team at SportsHawaii.com. uhwarriors and ubercow did a lot of leg work and spent many sleepless nights helping us develop the new mission statement and rules. I wanted to thank all of the moderators and the Sports Hawaii Ohana who continue to help us keep this community, a special place to hang our hat and call home.

I want to thank the Moderators and Administrators for the wonderful job they have done w/ this site. I think this mission statement and rules were a great idea. Much props to you guys. :D This is by far the best site to talk about sports. We can leave the bashing, negativity and immaturity at the other site where it belongs.

thank you mods for not mistaking me as a troll... I always have have the best intentions for my posts pertaining to hawaii and any of its sports programs.... not a fan at all of upper campus, but through the good and bad ive stuck by UH... only a true fan would spend thousands of dollars to fly up to new orleans to watch the sugar bowl, or be the first in line to purchase tickets for the BYU 2001 game... i understand but i dont agree with some posters attempts to label me a troll, since im just as much a fan as they are or more perhaps... its just i choose to take a more realistic approach then others are comfortable with... i use to be a complete homer but that doesnt do anyone any good... and it makes for a completely moronic conversation when dealing with other fans of other schools, who think theyre program is gods gift to college football....

well again, thank you mods for recognizing me as a fan and not a "foe"....

That just isn't right...  How can you make the new board rules and then ban people who violated it prior the implementation of the new board rules. For instance, if state lawmakers passed a law today that makes it illegal to use fireworks in Hawaii, they can't  go and fine all people who used fireworks in Hawaii before that…. this is totally ridiculous.

That would make perfect sense if this was a government. Unfortunately it's not. Just because they weren't written, doesn't mean there weren't any rules. In this case it would actually be like someone breaking a law they didn't know existed, then learned about it. Did they not still break the law?

I actually think what's ridiculous is questioning the mods decision making 3 posts in of starting to post on a message board. Not off on the right foot for someone who wasn't even posting when they were and seem to be the only one with a problem with it.
