Discussion: MESSAGE BOARD POST REMOVED (and Why)

Posted Discussion

We have removed a recent post by an anonymous member with the username "G MAN" ... We did this not because we believe the subject matter isn't of importance (to at least him), but rather because it is "anonymous" and gives the subject/target of that post no recourse to defend himself, or even respond effectively ... We also have no way of evaluating the charges in the void of this anonymous and generally unregulated environment ... G MAN, we encourage you to send this information to our office (info@seniorsoftball.com) in an identifiable email, meaning it's completely clear who you are and a point of contact for us to get back to you ... It would be wise to submit any substantiating information as well, including, but not limited to, others who may have pertinent factual information on the matter ... As it was constituted, the post was nothing more than an unsubstantiated anonymous allegation ... It's going to have to be made presentable if you have any expectation of effectuating any recourse or official response ... Please don't make the mistake of simply re-posting it ... We look forward to hearing from you via the appropriate channels of communication ... Thank you ...

Yes it did ... In an 810± word anonymous and unsubstantiated accusation against another member of the Message Board community ... We are certainly interested in the topic and are hopeful the information may get cleaned up and submitted properly for our analysis and follow-up as may be appropriate ...

SSUSA Staff,

I just read your e mail and I thought I put enough information that it would not be taken down . If you want me to post my name I will and if you want to see the e mails and the names of the 2 e mails and there phone numbers I will be that also .....I will be more then gladly to show ssusa anything I have This is not a joke. How dare Chuck Sharkey come into this complex with little regard for anyone well-being. There are many people who are ballistic over this ....... This is not a dig on SSUSA it shows why we all enjoy playing softball with your organization. This also clearly shows the recless bahavior of ISSA and others at players expense . So tell me exactly what you want so the story can be re-posted . Thanks

How is "contact tracing" going?

Joey525i, you're in the wrong thread right now ...

G MAN ... Please don't confuse the removal of your post with any inference of an official opinion or position on it ... It was removed for being an anonymous and serious unsubstantiated allegation against a person who is presumably in the dark as to who his accuser might be ... ID-ing yourself is not the solution now ... Please submit officially whatever you think appropriate for us to consider and we will do so off the record ... We're not going to try this case in a MESSage BORED, though ... If there is something ultimately that our ownership group believes merits an official public response from us, that's what will happen ... Thanks for your cooperation ...

SSUSA - I would like to recommend to you at this time to contact Chuck Sharkey and have him fill you in on his details ....... My story is bullet proof

Joey 525i - I dont think there is any contact tracing going on for the simple reason of denial at VB . Many of the players and there families had no idea until Sunday while only a few teams were left.

G MAN - Denial seems to be our norm with some, when we have the tools to deal with Covid-19 and we refuse to use them. I hope all involved are in self isolation!

G MAN ... As our final public comment for now, we will not be doing anything at all, including contacting the other party you mentioned, prior to receiving your official submission we solicited above ... We place no reliance or credibility on Message Board commentary and never have ... Again, identifiable and supportable correspondence to SSUSA at "info@seniorsoftball.com" is the correct procedural process ... We look forward to hearing and evaluating what you have for us to see as evidence ... Thank you ...
