In response to miscricket's comment:
To me..the point seems to be that it is not a popularity contest. Bill has the right to post here regardless of whether or not people like him...as long as he is not violating the TOS. I don't feel the need to reply to or address each and every one of Bill's off the wall comments. I guess I still don't understand why anyone does. Guess what? I don't like Bill's politics either...but I also never respond to his politics in this Red Sox forum because I don't come to this forum to talk politics. There is a very lively politics forum for that.
I guess I just don't understand what everyone's fixation is with Bill. Just pass his comment by. It's really that simple.
I will say that one thing I have never seen Bill do is start threads aimed at fellow posters. Starting threads aimed at other posters is really a very immature thing to do..so regardless of how childish Bill can be...I suggest that certain posters take a look in the mirror before casting stones.
I have to say..as a woman..I am really surprised at the overly emotional reaction to Bill by some of the guys on this forum ;-)
Hey Ms C. i cant speak for other posters but i can say that after years of watching certain posters:
- sticking political jabs into threads out of nowhere
- making veiled (and sometimes not veiled) racist posts
- apologizing in 1 post and 2 minutes later doing exactly what he/she posted an apology for.
There was recently a nice 1-2 week stretch in which there was some really good baseball dialogue going on in these boards without the political rhetoric and without a dozen new threads popping up on how terrible our DH is.
Emotional? yup, i think i have reached that threshold. i plan on monitoring this situation very closely and will jump at the chance to rid this forum of someone who i believe is simply a troll that is only here to stir trouble and not even a Red Sox fan.
[/QUOTE]As DAD would say......... "SON, I can't understand why you & that nice young man (SOFTLAW aka SOFTY) have become the two (2) most misunderstood posters on the board" ???
