    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...

    Bottom line: It's an internet message board, so posters get to say things to other posters they'd never dare say face-to-face. Everybody here can be 6-foot-4, 220 pounds with 18-inch biceps. Taking anything personally here would be a waste.

    In Response to Re: Another thread about the so called "ban" on NYY fans......an important question that I've not seen addressed. : I know what you mean about the hundreds of thousands of posts, in spite of what J-BAY might tell you. As you can see, I have been here for over three years with over 2500 posts and am still quite often ignored. Granted, at times I can come across as an a**hole, but then so can most everyone else here at one time or other. You cite many good examples for why you might be ignored. A lot of folks here have their pet axes to grind and only want to associate with those who are like minded (or mindless) and will do their best to degrade and/or  embarrass you or otherwise discourage you by not responding at all. Don't let those things bother you. If you have an opinion that you want to get out, let it fly. Remember, you're no better or worse, or any more right or wrong than any of the rest of us Zinzonies who post here. A thick skin and immunity to insults are helpful attributes if you want to survive here, or on any of the BDC forums. I don't know what else to tell you right now other than enjoy yourself and  "Welcome to the Looney Bin." Oh there is one more thing... I tried to smoke Astroturf once... Don't.

    Mikey was swearing up and down that it is not him. I don't know who to believe anymore. Maybe it is a good idea to ban all Yankee fans. At least it will be once less headache for me when trying to decipher through all the B.S. here.

    Not having come here regularly in almost a year, I can only imagine what this board has been like this season. It's a zoo even in the best of times.

    I assume cut & pasting portions of other's posts will be a no-no.

    One doesn't try to be cool.  One just is.

    What other words and phrases make you mad?  Did you just wake up from your nap?

    I talk on here the way I choose to talk.  I suggest you do the same.  Mom.

    It's hard to know what to believe around here these days. I believe that Yankee fans should not be banned just because they are Yankee fans. What then? We'll have pike/kst/softy running all over the board having victory parades? Ugh. If there is anything at all to this (???) It may be another run at some kind of a private forum where, theoretically, only Red Sox fans can enter. I don't see how they can reliably pull something like that off and it's just a guess, I don't really know anything about it. I do know this board would be a much poorer place without the perspective of fans from other teams.

    I am compiling a list of other things that will need to be banned. Stay tuned. In the interim , you will still be permitted to talk the way you choose to talk.  No matter how dumb it may be.
