    That's a pretty motley crew of posters. These things need criteria. Does getting it right mean anything? How much does insight and intelligence count? Some people here are actually fans of trolls and would vote for them. Some people have multiple identities promoting themselves. One bozo has a thread here solely to garner pity for himself ( as an alternate identity ) as "worst poster of the year" potentially and we are supposed to line up to make him feel better?

    Honestly, this forum is a microcosm of society and as with our country's political processes, the public is incredibly misinformed. I don't find the democratic process particularly insightful or effective at choosing it's "leaders" on this forum. It's like a high school class voting the guy they like as class president instead of the guy who actually gives a darn and would do something both contructive and positive. The capable, intelligent and informed guy gets near zero votes and the guy who doesn't even show up to the student senate meetings gets elected. Look at the work Moon gives this forum, not to mention the insight and level of detail. He blows eveyone else on that list away. It's not even a contest.

    To get chosen by your peers for excellence would mean something. But it ends up in a process like this. Zero voting criteria. Little regard for excellence. 

    Yet another cluster you know what.



    So, who is your -motley nonnomination?

     

    (I did not include my name, because I was wrong a lot last winter-spring.)



    Over half this forum are nitwits, trolls and rabble rousers who are either just plain ignorant or intentionally disruptive. Thank God we won last year or the whole place would be overun with trolls. I don't remember a single piece of insight from over 1/2 of the members of that list. Joebriety is the only consistently positive one with real knowledge and insight that I can remember from that list and notin / hfxsoxnut and I'm sure some others are reasonably significant posters here but I don't remember a single good post from 1/2 the others and don't even remember any posts at all from some of those guys. 

    If this is a list of our top guys, count me out anyway. I'm not on your real list anyway Moon. So forget about it. If this is considered excellence then I sincerely question it's motives and insight in itself. Just a considered opinion on the situation here. Some really nice people but based on what were the above list "top poster of the year"? Insight? Predictive Analysis? Being Funny? Supporting the community? I see it with joebriety but overall most of those guys are honorable mention at best.

    Most people here wouldn't recognize excellence if it bit them in the face.




    Ouch......

    In response to Joebreidey's comment:

     

    Awe shucks Youk (blushing). Here is what happened midyear: Breidey (who can feel free to add his input too) stated here that there are three posters here that he automatically assumes are wrong and that he is right about whatever they wrote. I know I was one of them; I think Georom may have been another (or DGalehouse) and a third who I cannot recall. He went on to say that these three are fair game for ridicule whenever he sees fit to do so. That lacks objectivity since he is not right all the time; sometimes even WE are right. And to feel free to ridicule ANY poster here brings the board down a notch. No one here deserves ridicule. You either debate someone or you just ignore them. In fairness to Breidey, he has improved over the past several months and has been able to have a reasonable dialogue with anyone here. However, the award is for ALL of 2013.

    It wasn't Galehouse.  We occasionally disagree, but not too often,  The #3 was ADG.  Anyone who criticizes our #1 pick for being a slow-footed white OFer, when the guy is an SP, with excellent speed, just has to be criticized.

    And you can pull out my exact response if you want, but I believe my response was 'if you and I disagree, I will always assume I am right'.  I think I posted that in one of three threads.  It was either the 

    • Your late May thread when you said the season was over
    • The final 35 thread when you predicted 17-18
    • The thread where you said Doubront was a #5, at best
    • Or the thread where you said Lester was a #5

     



    I was wrong about all four of those comments. And many more, no doubt. However, if you and I disagree it does not mean that you are right and I am wrong every time (no, I am not going to go back searching for examples) nor does it mean that I am right and you are wrong. Sometimes neither of us is right because its a matter of opinion rather than a matter of fact. And as I wrote NO ONE deserves to be "ridiculed" here (=speech or action intended to cause contemptuous laughter at a person or thing; derision; Toridiculeis to make fun of, either sportively and good-humoredly,or unkindly with the intention of humiliating. ) Debated, sure. Or ignored. I stand by that opinion and although we have actually had some civil discussions of late, probably because both of us have toned it down, I think that whole exchange brought the board down a notch. Other posters have managed to avoid doing that entirely.

     



    Yes, you have your opinions and many turned out to be wrong.  the "season is over thread" last May was an opinion. Cherry picking only the bad games pitched by Lester in April and May led to another stupid opinion. The problem here is that your opinions are influence by your propensity to be pessimistic, in a panic, and being skeptical nearly all of the time.  You seem to relish spreading your  gloom and doom opinions on the forum and then enjoy the feedback from those who are more objective, hopeful, and optimistic.  Your opinions seem to parallel one who loves playing the role of a devil's advocate. The noisy wheel gets the most grease and the pouting, miserable fan has the most thread responses.




    Nailed it....

    HFX, good poster, probably a great poster, but his posts are so vanilla,( to me) I can't remember one.



    Vanilla?  OUCH.

    Man, there's always a downside in life, even when you get nominated for a prestigious honor like this...Wink

    Lighten up Prospects.  This forum is for information, conversation and entertainment.  If you're looking for 'excellence' I hear SOSH is the place for that.

    I enjoy your posts.  But I don't see why you get so mad about stuff like this.  Take this forum for what it is and don't take it too seriously.

    Great poster, but I was always more of a Cheryl Tiegs guy when it came to 1970s posters (used to have her on the back of the bedroom door of her in a bikini that was hot) and I was more of a Cheryl Ladd guy when it came to Charlie's Angels.

    (Had a thing for Cheryl's in my teen years I guess.)



    Angie Dickenson makes both Farrah and Cheryl look like Suzyn Waldman.

    ouch!!..oh my goodness, gracious..of all the....Tongue Out

    Ok fellas.....  break it up.

    I am going to have to put an end to this topic & come out as Poster of the Year.

    One of my personalities recently outed us / me as actually being Billy, Stiffy, & 67.  My Pikey personality went & spilled the beans, thus outing himself / me.  Yes!  I admit it.  I am in fact all 4.

    Given this startling revelation, I think it's clear who the Poster of the Year is.

    Thank you ladies and gentlemen.  My competition was excellent!  You all deserve a great deal of praise.  Please, don't fight this, or I will be forced to take over your personality, & nobody wants that! 

    ;)
