    Another poster ready to retire

    I have only posted when I felt the topic was game related. But after clicking on and reading the personal battles between posters, this Sox fan since 1966 has decided to stop taking looks at this site for accurate Sox news.

    Somehow this site, got bigger than the Sox and was about individual ego, who has the most posts, who can out insult who, sorry, folks, I am done clicking on and seeing more of the same.

    Lefty, we hear you. It is disgusting at times but there are also some good moments. Vist Moon's realistic thread and it generally is much better, although sometimes even that thread has issues.

    Hi mate.  I share your frustration, and my participation here is receding rapidly.  Part of me doesn't want to let "them" win....but to me it's just not a battle worth fighting at the moment.

    Lefty, farewell.  Hope you reconsider, but totally understandable.

    I know what you're saying, but there's still enough good threads to have discussions. And even in those threads where someone goes off track, it's still easy to ignore that post and comment on the better posts.

    You want to see more "bad and ugly?"

    Try the POLITICS forum.

    I go there for a few laughs from time to time....and it's serious business between the wacko wingnuts and left wing liberals.

    Make a comment there that contains a shred of common sense and get ready for serious backlash...it is quite comical , and I love it!

    I read your frustration. I suggest you reconsider, after you cool off. You should simply post your own threads and use the ignore button so you won't see the posters' comments that upset you so much.

    Best wishes to you and your family,

    softlaw

    LEFTY, you can't just walk away, it was just the other day that I put you on the "all board ROSTER"  !!! You deserve you status on this board ......  I hate to say it, but SOFTY has the best approach for you to follow....... Give it some reconsideration, son !!!

    Hello ZILLAGOD    :)

    I sometimes post in the "Love Letters" section.  

    I made a comment where I never make love while a Red Sox game is on and many readers got upset by my comment.   LOL

    I'm not sure why people would be "upset" by that comment.

    In my opinion the Red Sox aren't worth misssing an opportunity like that! ...and you can always watch the replay , or record the game .....you might not get that chance with your lover if you refuse too many times.

    @ Lefty..

    I posted here a week or so ago that there are a few posters who act as if they're trying to destroy the board, and they're succeeding. 

    My experience here got significantly better when I put a certain someone on Ignore.  Now I can open their posts when I want to and not see them when I want to, and that works better for me.  And when I DO open their posts I invariably say to myself, "NOW I remember why I had that __________  on Ignore!".

    I find that to be a better alternative than 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater'.  

    I'd urge you to at least give that a try before you give up completely.

    I know your feeling. I've left myself at times.

    Like others have suggested, use the ignore button.  It really helps.

    Fortunately, the good posters/people, I think, outnumber the bad ones.

    YOURAZZ,   Thank you so much for the fine compliment here.......  As DAD would say.........  "SON, if your mentioned in the same breath with MOON & SOFTY, then you must know your baseball" !!!!!!
