In Response to Re: Another thread about the so called "ban" on NYY fans......an important question that I've not seen addressed. : I felt the same way when I first started posting. Quite often I still do. Say one negative thing, "you're a Yankee Troll!" Too positive, "you're a pathetic Francona apologist!" "You're Softlaw!" "You're Pike!" "You're this, you're that!" It's a bizarre & somewhat inbred forum! The ultimate insider's club, for those with an enormous amount of time on their hands! Somebody questions you, so you tweak them back over doing the same thing they've accused you of, you're a marked man! I can definitely see how intimidating it would be for somebody not used to defending their every word with a passion. Make a slip up, & say something not quite baked? WATCH OUT! I thought about bagging it early on, as it can be more than DYSFUNCTIONAL!!! Ironic, since the biggest topic on the forum has been the RS dysfunction???? In the end, I realized most of the guys on here are pretty nice. :) Of course there's Softy....... What can anyone make of him :( So........ Is this brown shirt rumor true??? I haven't bothered following it, as it sounds as insane as anything I've ever heard on here. If people want to pretend being someone their not, who the hell cares? It sure as hell doesn't effect me. I could give a rip who somebody is pretending to be. That's their issue, not mine. What are we all shrinks now? Brown shirts? Please! Softy??? OK! Purge him!!!!!! ????? Well... That wouldn't be much fun either!

A bizarre and somewhat inbred forum. Not sure just yet how I feel about being included in such a group but... very true and (I think) very funny.
I know exactly how it feels to say the wrong thing and to have a howling mob descend on you complete with torches and pitchforks. Fortunately for me, defending my every word is second nature to me. (see above post)
I take breaks here and there but always come back in spite of the dysfunction. Or perhaps because of it.
As far as the "brown shirt rumor"? I know how and where it got started but I'd rather not say. I could also speculate as to what it might be about. But I won't. It doesn't matter. People can say they are anyone or anything on the internet and I don't really care either. Shrinks?...ah never mind. And then there's Softy.
All I can say to that is ... oy.
So. I don't know if this has helped ArkaSox any or not. I hope he decides to sign in to the B o o b y Hatch (see James Thurber) and join the fun. If not, who could blame him? I do hope that some of our long time members will keep this thread going as a reminder that we were once new here wondering how we were going to survive among such rabid jackals and asking ourselves if it would be worth the trouble.
On that happy note - until we meet...
