    Default Webteam = Kentland Groupies?

    I guess I will either be banned or this thread will be closed/deleted quick.

    I find it interesting that the Webteam closed the most recent resurrection of the "Kentland" thread, with a simple "Thread Closed" message. They couldn't even give a reason? Maybe they are just as sick of the Kentland gossip as the rest, but at least give a reason! I don't think there was anything on there that was overly offensive. Well I'm out of here for now, maybe I will talk to you all soon, maybe not!

    And if they were Kentland groupies - who could blame them? We don't get mad at kids for idolizing Superman, do we? Kentland is kind of like the fire service Navy SEALS. Who wouldn't worship them????

    I'll go with you. This is not the first time that they have shut down a Kentchildren thread. I thought it was odd and aggravating myself.

    We had a guy on here two weeks ago post a video with active links to pornography on it. I don't think that he did it with the intention to spread porn, but it was clearly inappropriate. I reported it three times. It's still there today.

    But pick on Spanky and Our Gang one time and, all of a sudden, here is the WT.

    I think we just empower the people from Kentland if we keep bringing this up. They don't need any more inflation of their ego's. IMHO.

    The webteam is probably just sick and tired of what every thread about kentland turns into. Hell , just read posts # 2 thru 5 on this current thread and you'll see my point. Nothing productive ever comes from it. Maybe they shouldn't shut them down but they do.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here (not too far) and say that Chicago was joking just a bit. Of course, that's just my guess.

    Not only do some of us believe that they are the best volunteer company, but that they are so far ahead of the 2nd best FD in the entire country that we go and ride all the time down there. The Navy SEALs dont see nearly as much active duty as Kentland.

    Ok, maybe we took it too far.






















    They are definitely better than the Air Force though, right?

    Disclaimer: This IS a joke.

    The first thing that came to my smart-assed mind when I read that, was that Kentland is to the FS, what this guy is to the Navy Seals:

    Hey Harve, or anyone "in the know".......

    I seem to remember a thread on here a year or tow ago that resulted in an exchange of private messages between some of the regulars.......It was alledged that the webteam members for FH.com (employees of cygnus) are volunteers somewhere in PG county (there is indeed a cygnus office in Beltsville) and that anytime a thread became active on here that was even remotely negative towards Kentland, their phone would ring off the hook from Station 33 demanding the threads closure.

    Anyone care to comment?

    Webteam, care to comment on that allegation? How come the K33 thread got closed so quick? There are threads on here currently that are FAR more damaging than that one was.....or......GASP! Did it have to do with my mentioning of the secret run stat padding????

    No phone calls were made, or have ever been made.
    It was the resurrection of a old, dead thread and our collective decision to simply close it.

    Obvisously it isn't "dead" thread, hence plenty of people still want to talk about it. Isn't that what this forum is for, to talk about all aspects of the fire service? Just a question.

    No offense, WT, but if that was the case, half of the threads on here would have been shut down.....

    Default Well, I've made it this far......

    Ok WT, your reasoning is because it is an old thread.

    I will throw down the BS flag and wait on a ruling.............

    How is this for an old thread, take a look at the "Bunker Gear on EMS calls" thread. It was last active 1/14/2001. Someone resurected the thread SEVEN years later and went on for sixteen posts.
    NOT CLOSED.

    The "Kentland" thread was resurected after only two years, and was steadily being posted on thus far for forty five more posts (46 if you count the last post "thread closed.")
    Status of that thread, CLOSED.

    So a thread which is six years old and goes on for only one more page stays open. A thread which is two years old and has continuing discussion for two and a half pages gets closed. Things that make you go hmmmmmm.......

    Well, by this reasoning, this thread shouldn't be closed, its only a few hours old. I still wonder what will become of my existence for questioning the WT.

    Pull up your 3/4 boots, it's gonna get deep!
