    It sounds fun, but I'm afraid I might post some drunken stupid posts occasionally.. It already seems like some well-suited applicants are here.

    I'm up for it. I already work for the Trail Blazers (love it) and am a frequent live viewer of TBTV, as well as games, of course. I know I don't post a whole lot; I'm more of the viewer who comments when something needs to be said or hasn't been said yet. I'm also very good in English classes. 

    IAmA mod's have done a great job here, I'd just like to contribute more to this team I grew up with, love and respect. There are some that either ignore the rules or forget them, though. That's where I can be very helpful. I don't swear on here, I don't drink, and I avoid scuffles whenever possible, which is quite often to say the least. Let's just say I have a long fuse, too.

    Just because it's the offseason and rumors and movement are simmering, that doesn't mean fans take those days off of the boards. There's still plenty to go around with coaches, trades and signings, rookie speculation, the list goes on. This forum isn't for personal stuff, it's basketball. Trail Blazers basketball. If I have any stronger passion in my life, it's probably my lady, but aside from her, nothing beats it. I'd like to show my devotion and appreciation for this team in every way I can.

    I read most of the posts and from what I see the original posters don't seem to need much moderation, but some of the responses to their posts may need minor moderation. I feel that when the responders speak their mind any moderation should be about policing language and not trying to police or suppress feelings of any kind. I like when people have strong reaction to any posts (especially my own), I think it demonstrates their passion for NBA action, and more to the point for the Portland Trailblazers. ROLL ON BLAZERS!

    Considering the speed in which we hired a gm and a coach I would say get a job at Vulcan move up to where you can appoint yourself and then your in. Or apply on here and hope you get selected, that is the route I chose.

    I think that if you ask for volunteers you should wait to see what you get before offering payment, I believe you get people who don't really want to do the job but they would like the free tickets. I'm not trying to be a hater but I live out of town ( in LA ) so I can't use the free tickets anyway.

    I want to say congrats to Common as I believe he will do a good job.

    So far, Common and bdawg and yes they can edit without consent of the author. That's the point of having a moderator. Obviously, they won't and shouldn't edit posts that have nothing wrong with them but if a user drops an F-Bomb in a post, then most definitely a mod should and will step in to edit that post.

    There has been plenty of time to find the right ones. I'm happy with Common being one of them and I'm sure whoever the other is, that it is the right person for the job. I think everyone here wanted to be a moderator, don't be sour about not being chosen, it's just a message board.

    People who cannot describe things without using profanity, have no grip on fundamental language. I understand there are a lot of lazy people out there who think it makes them cool to talk loud or use profanity, This is not the case. Being loud or using profanity just shows a low maturity level. More people will listen to you and take you seriously if you speak softly and use descriptive words that are not considered slang. There is a time and place for descriptive profanity, but it is not on a public sports blog site. I do think that referring to the "f-bomb" in a post should be allowed.

    My Sister, who speaks 8 languages and quite a few dialects told me when i was 7, " profanity is for those who cannot think quickly enough to come up with an intelligent answer" . I tend to agree to a point murr. Sometimes, i want to slap the expletive taste out of a refs mouth. The block on Durant by LaMarcus in what was probably the turning point of our season last year,made me want to slap the " expletive" out of the ref. And while i said unspeakable things  to the tv,i always spared my constituents.
