In Response to Re: Salty is officially the new punching bag of the pretending Sox fans
I can understand why Babe, Mikeyinthebronx, NHSteven, Jeter, Jessey, and Perkins dislike Smiley-Beni but I can't understand why LMR, Nagy, Playball consider him a threat to the forum? In my opinion the horde of pretend / concern trolls poses a much bigger problem. There is nothing worse than someone who pretends to be a cynic, skeptic, pessimist, distraught fan, in an attempt to get loyal Red Sox fans mad. They are as despicable as Manny was. The non-pretenders who are cynics, skeptics, pessimists, crybabies, should be more patient, tolerant, and loyal instead of acting like kids after every tough loss. Grab a crying towell, kick your dog, beat up your wife, beak some bottles, but don't come here and whine and pout. Don't come here and preach to the choir. Only little kids go into a tantrum when things don't go their way. Big boys and adults bite their tongue and blame it on a multitude of things and don't look for scapegoats.

I don't consider Smiley a threat to the forum. I don't consider anyone a threat to the forum. I find him and all of his characters amusing. I just call him out for his nonsense. He just spews outlandish statements he can't defend, most of the time he doesn't even try.
He also has a habit of disappearing when things aren't going well for the sox, while accusing anyone who calls him out of being a "pretending sox fan".
He is no different than babe, they both spend most of their time trying to get a rise out of people. You defend him for the sole reason that he is a sox fan.
If he and his cast of characters were spewing the same type of nonsense with a yankee tilt, you would be the first one to condemn him/them.
The way I see it, trolling is trolling, no matter which side of the fence you are on.
