In Response to Re: Rays will overtake Yanks
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rays will overtake Yanks : The Yanks are doing okay, but I don't think they will get by the Rays or Rangers in the ALCS, assuming they make it that far.... Life on this forum is, however, problematic...JBAY agreed with dgale who two days ago (all quotes are from last Sunday's game thread, the thread I "sabotaged" by responding to gratuitous attacks) that I was a ""phony and a fraud", comments that obviously went beyond the fact that I had 3 ID's or was another concern troll...JBAY talked about how I had "confessed" to it, even though I did mention the minor detail that I used the same 2 quotes with all 3 ID's, hardly the approacjh of someone trying to hide anything...JBAY went on to say that I need to äpologize" to you for deceiving you..He also said the following in 2 separate posts: " He admitted to mutilple screen names, exam. thats the BS that will stop soon, hopefully. notice "clamshack" took off, also…… Let me get this straight, you have three screen names, regularly sabotage the gamehthreads and you're shocked at my behavior...do I have that right?? not to mention, you have a pregnant wife, 2 kids, work 50 hours a week and you have time for 3 screen names, as a NYY fan, on a red sox forum?? the three screen names are??" Clearly the implication is that my "fraud"extends beyod the 3 screen names...How could I have 2 kids and a pregnant wife if I spend all this time on the forum....I responded as follows, carnie: " Teilhardian and caseycsw for the software boys....I have been on this site for over 3 years, with a total of 1146 posts, including this one....Sounds like a lot, and I guess it is a lot, even if that is over the course of 3 years....But I obviously do not live here...But I will take that shot from you anyway, JBAY, about how I spend all this time in here and yet claim to have a real life outside of here... And I guess responding to attacks is sabotaging a game thread anyway, so I better be quiet lest you grab your bat phone and dial me in tonight..Oh, no!!! Perish the thought!!!....Anyway, I will avoid making another mini-gallows speech while you flex your moderator muscle...It is VERY impressive, I must say....Very fair and balanced..." I won't go into the rest of it, other than to add he is essentially telling others I will be banned permanently once the new software is put in place....Even so, I told JBAY and others on Sunday that I was not proud of losing it with KST and pike after getting repeatedly attacked by them, just as others have been..Nor am I proud for getting suspended indefinitely over my left-wing rants when others get a thread or two deleted...Why?..It's a baseball forum, and one with predominantly conservative members, even if there is a smattering of liberals...But I have strong convictions and cannot always keep my Irish political blarney in check...Still, there are political forums created for that, even if there is often (not always) double standard on this forum.. Anyway, carnie, I will miss the forum and especially some of our exchanges..You are a great guy, and I have appreciated your support...I know you obviously know that I had 3 ID's so I doubt you are shocked to hear of same..Then there is the implication that, besides supposedly being another posturing "concern" Yankee troll, maybe I don't have a loving wife, a demanding psychiatric social work job, 2 beautiful little girls, and another one on the way, or that I am "fraud" in other ways....Carnie, I am not worried that you believe it is all a not-so-cleverly- created ruse....The only reason I am belaboring all of this is that, while the attacks by pike and KST were many, they have gone after plenty of others as well...Most do not really pay that heed..But when someone who acts as the forum moderator joins with another poster in saying that I am a "fraud and a phony" it is a lot different...Not sure how much longer I will be able to post,carnie, but I did want you to know... .There is no need to comment since I know you get along well with JBay and everyone on this forum, for that matter...I just wanted, want to get this stuff off my chest.... When I showed some of the posts to my wife (who is from Belfast and has seen plenty of BS of a more serious nature in her life), she was stunned by the nasty personal innuendo behind the attacks... So I will post off and on until my IP address head is finally lopped off....I have enjoyed my 3 years on the forum, even if my presence was intermittent at best, but I will not miss the way people make themselves feel better when they revel in bashing others....
