also, to the rest of you, I appologize for the name-calling. This is generally a decent board and I enjoy reading it and don't normally feel the need to contribute (either positively or negatively).
This guy is just ridiculous though. At least with Softy and Bill, I assume they're just trolling. I think the OP is for real though. Anyways, carry on.
Andrewmitch is just very opinionated. There is nothing wrong with his post, I have agreed and disagreed with him many times. I have strong opinions too. There was no need to respond to Andrew as you did. If you disagree with him, state your own opinion. If you don't like him, ignore his posts. I don't understand why it is "ridiculous" to make an anti-Yankee post on a Red Sox board ( especially one not done maliciously). I have stated my disagreement with the context of his post , but not with his right to make it.
Many of us longtime posters take a dim view of people with low #s of posts calling us out, although that doesn't make it okay for people with high posting #s either. If you are new at posting here, you certainly have a strange way of gaining friends by calling people filthy names. It is childish and against board rules....( note that your response was deleted while Andrew's post remains intact, as it should be), and your 2nd post should be deleted too , as it offers no rebuttal or value to the current topic.
The problem with andrew is that if you disagree with him aggressively, he puts you on ignore. I didn't call him names nor insult him personally. I disagreed with some posts that I felt were beyond ridiculous and it was his opinion I was disagreeing with, yet he couldn't take it and put me on ignore.
If you're going to be so opinionated and state those opinions so intensely, you should be able to take the heat when someone disagrees equally intensely. Yet any time anyone does, he puts them on ignore, not simply the ones who call him names.
That's the difference between you and him. I've disagreed with your view of things at times and stated my views, but I think (and hope) I've always responded respectfully. I've always respected your opinion even when I've disagreed because you deserve that respect. I've also agreed with you many times.
Meh, Ive had my share of battles with andrewmitch, and have given as good as I got. Thats just how it is. You yell at each other a couple of times and move on. I dont think theres any malice, thats just mitch being mitch. Using the c word was probably a bit much. Thay would provoke anyone on here, let alone AM. He was actually a lot nicer than I would have been if a poster pulled that one out on me. I never use vulgarity or cuss words, but have been known to cut offenders to ribbons, sometims to a fault....
I don't know if you said this (I dont think so?) but I certainly don't just put people on ignore for disagreeing with me. But if I wanted to, so what? I guess some people can't handle being made irrelevant (the way yankee fans can't handle their team being irrelevant)
