Lets keep it real....This is probably a conversation we have all engaged in one form or another over the years...but its probably best saved for the 19th hole and not this forum.

This is true. I'm sorry I created the thread. Had played golf that day and there was a hot beer cart girl. The guys I was with started spinning their dreams, desires, and stories. After a scotch or two the other night when I posted that thread, seemed like it could be an amusing topic. In bad taste, though, in retrospect, and I'm sorry to Eric for having posted it.

The closed thread was a stupid topic with absolutely zero entertainment or informational value. It existed solely for the purpose of giving immature members an excuse to

Nice post man, totally correct!

i agree with closing it. I think it would be hard to run a forum like this. There are too many people who just want to fight, troll and stir up things. Hes done it for many years and I think he would agree.

You're really going to compare pro golfers' "issues" and discussing those "issues" in the forum to asking people if they've had sex with a cart girl and to tell a story in regards to that?

So its okay to talk about their affairs and post pictures of them, but its way off your moral compass when you would tell a story when you had a romance with a beer cart girl (be it fictional or not)?

Sorry but i think they call this double moral. And so is closing the previous thread. You either close them all down or not, and there are enough threads on this board that are questionable by strict moral standards but yet remain open - hmm.
but its probably best saved for the 19th hole and not this forum.

Same thing - bragging about it at the 19th hole to your friends okay, but on an internet forum not? Because the internet is a holy place and we all just come here to talk golf swing and equipment, and not about the guy who took a dump in the cup..........

This cart girl post unintentionally tells women they're not welcome here.

If women would be a target group many well frequented forums/blogs could shut down.

Family site / Women friendly site?
http://thesandtrap.com/reviews

I only see men product reviewed there - and thats for a reason, the number of women reading golf forums is close to zero. In general women arent intrested in reading much about golf - just check out how many women golf magazines there are. And the step from a golf magazine to an internet forum is a big one for a woman. I´m sure Eric could shine some light on active participation men vs. women and that should clear things up.

Give it up dude.... you've lost the war. Even the guy who started the thread admits that it was misplaced, so what the hell are

you arguing about? Time for Erik to lock this one too.

We are all guests here. I don't get the "entitlement attitude" that someone can post whatever they want. Of course, a privately run forum can lock or delete threads arbitrarily and as guests here we accept this fact. One of the things that makes this community successful is the nature of the information and decisions made about the forum -- that is a big reason it is so popular. I don't have a problem with how the forum is moderated, but if someone does, they are free to select some other forum. JMHO.

I support Eric [sic] closing the thread and feel it was completely appropriate to do so. TST is privately owned and is operated for general public consumption but supported by advertising income, and it is necessary to operate the business in an appropriate manner.

All that stuff.

Congratulations - a lot of people would have either dug in their heels or slinked away - Danny Noonan himself would be proud of your epiphany.

Unintentionally?

agreed the thread should have been closed

Yup.

+1 to all that.

It was well within reason. I've been a moderator/admin on a few high-traffic forums. If I saw a thread like that, I would've deleted the thread and banned the poster in a heartbeat, no questions asked, no appeals heard. Eric was lenient.

Suck it up. It's a privately owned/operated forum with rules governing acceptable content. While vulgarity and coarse attitudes may attract some, they deter others, the latter group being the more civilized of the two. Administrators always have to consider which group of people they want to attract and what content they personally want to support/encourage. They are perfectly within their rights to enforce standards based on personal morals if they choose.

This is a forum of golfers , surely the idea of etiquette (eg, dress codes) has been beaten into you by now.

Eh, it's a personal call. In my experience, people willing to display that level of immaturity are unlikely to be missed if banned. It also sends a clear "do not do this" message, because, also in my experience, just saying "no" the first time just postpones a second attempt at that behavior, or just a lot of button pushing. If they want to re-register and act more maturely, they're usually welcome to.

I suppose the OP had 130+ posts, so he wasn't a newbie. For some reason I thought he was a fairly new poster. I suppose more lenience could be in order, but not required. Instead of whining about how unfair it was to close the thread, they should be thankful the judgment wasn't as harsh as it reasonably could've been. P.S. I meant "Erik", not "Eric".

Perhaps you can point me out to the part where I was whining.

Oh, you can't. Noted.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
