We'll see....
« on: June 01, 2007, 10:13:21 PM »

I have no animosity towards that other board like some folks do.  Never had a problem there really - and have lots of friends there.

But I just posted an entry into the 'possibly personal attack' mode there - and I await possible moderation.  An acid test of sorts.  Will let you know the results.  Your opinion - is calling someone a 'freaking IDIOT' considered personal ?? Grin

Nevermind, I saw it. You should read his comments in the Wie thread.

My take was that you referred to a collective group of opinion as idiotic.  Wink

Between the Wie thread and the Hitting into Group thread I must have had 4-5 posts typed up, reviewed and then decided against posting. I feel better this morning not having entered the fray.

Only if they're not really a freaking idiot.  Truth.

FWIW, for some I don't think animosity is the right word.  Some just wanted to get away from a place where one of three posts are fine, one of three are part of a sponsor/equipment war and one of three are full of diatribe and hate.  It might be better now but when I bailed it resembled a cross between a meth house and a kindergarten class.

Certainly don't mean to impugn the classy folks that were and possibly still are active members over there.  There were plenty but the signal-to-noise ratio was taking a beating.

Fuzzy, I wish I did as you did. I wish I just stayed out. What I read last night was ..... I don't know, can't think of the right words. I think Uisce said it close enough for me. I have never ignored a user anywhere but I was mighty tempted last night. In fact I am still temped today with the continuing  :airquotes:opinions Air quotes.

I admit I still enjoy the board but sometimes it leaves a bitter taste. The worst part about it is that this never bothered me before.

Boy!  I gotta tell ya, that is a very limited demographic for me.

I usually pop in daily and read via Active Topics.  The last few days, it's been quite trying.  Between the myriad Michelle Wie threads, the A-Rod thread, and the handful of folks who seem to live for negativity and to see just how much courtesy they can shed ...  Disgusted.

Having met a lot of guys from online, I know that most are different in person.  But some of these guys?  If they acted halfway in person like they do on-line, I can't imagine ANYONE liking them.

Could it really be that simple?

True - I edited it before posting - it was just him originally, but I figured there were others that needed judgment too  Shocked Cheesy

I'm usually pretty tame online, I avoid things like the Wie thread and such, but this one really got under my skin.  People that think violence is a solution to problems... obviously need their asses kicked (too hypocritical?  Wink ).
