In response to SFBostonFan's comment:
In another post about "Problems with the Board" there got be ridiculous insulting among a few posters, Pumpsie, Bill, Burrito and maybe others. It seemed that some of you are masochists continuing back and forth as in a tennis match to insult eachother.
I like to joke around and exchange quips as life is too serious but among friends, not strangers. On the board we use Pen names and if someone wants to say they have IQs of 150+, have Purple Hearts, were All-State in High School and All American in College, most of the people I know who truly were some of these, don't brag about it. It seems a person who says this gets their jollies especially if not true. What a truly sad person who obviously has a complex with their intelligence or athleticism.
Did it not occur to you guys that the people who participate on these blogs are from all walks of life, different educational level, races, ages, athletic abilities etc. Many comments may seem completely idiotic to you but are you members of the MENSA society( for the uniformed that’s people with High IQs).
I believe instead of calling someone an idiot, stupid, scum etc., especially when one disagrees with a sports issue, come back with a rebuttal of you respect their opinion but you disagree and then give yours. But to demean a person belittles you, in my opinion. And if the person continues to argue a point with which you disagree, cease & desist from continuing the argument because if the person is blatantly incorrect and doesn't admit it, it becomes peeing up wind with an unreasonable person.
Good post. For the record, I NEVER start that stuff,
but I do feel entitled to defend myself if I choose to do so.
We both know that's not true.
One of the first things you did, when you started posting here again, was attack a female poster.
After you took heat for it, you realized you couldn't get away with the same crap you pulled on other sites.
