    To Softy,

    If you are not aware of this, when Bill-106 was banned, he did in fact contact BDC directly to find out why he was banned.

    They told him and as those of us who have been following his predicament...he also had a very strange software glitch at the time...fairly shortly after that they lifted the suspension.

    It is a better way to go then just waiting to see if and when your suspension will be lifted. It shows good faith on your part that even though you surely are not in agreement with your suspension, you know that the site belongs to BDC not you and you are willing to work with them to be a better poster.

    Just my opinion of course.

    p.s...Bill-106: If the part of my post that involves you is incorrect in anyway please feel free to clarify your dealings with BDC concerning your recent suspension.

    I don't like softy's politics, especially the fact that he brings them onto this board.  But, even though I disagree with much of what he says about the team, I do not at all object to having his point of view here.  That's what makes for lively discussions.  Lately, I simply stopped insulting him, and he by and large reciprocated.  So I try not to insult anyone else, including bill-806. 

    And softlaw wasn't wrong all the time.  He said the Sox need a good righty bat, and I agree with that.  He wanted Iglesias to start from the get go this season, and practically everyone (except me) agrees with that.  He wasn't completely wrong about Ellsbury even though his criticism was way over the top.  He said the Sox need good hitting to thrive/survive in the AL East, and that's pretty much true.

    SOFTY has one of the best Baseball minds on this board........ 

    Bill, 

    How you can come to that conclusion is beyond comprehension and only your shortsighted opnion. He may in fact know a lot about the game itself but his opinions on the whole show a lack of respect for players when he refers to them in negative terms by name calling and his constant unwavering opinions on some players no matter how well they play shows a lack of knowledge or an unwillingness to change opinion. I don't call this a good baseball mind. He is in fact one of the worst informed, most opinionated, negative posters on the BDC. 

    Hetch

    Sorry Hetch, I can not go along with your assessment of SOFTY........  As the new "POSTER BOY FOR BDC's WAR ON RESPECT" I need to take your above post apart as it is filled with total disrespect for a fellow poster.......  kindly show some remorse before you too end up in the BDC pool for no respect !!!!!!

    Sorry, Bill. Hetch makes good points. His post is well conceived and well written, surely based on his experiences with softy through the years. He is more respectful of softlaw here than softy has been of others in general. In short, I think Hetch is spot on. The fact that you disagree does not in and of itself make Hetch's post disrespectful.

    Softy constantly makes fun of our own players (like calling Dempster Dumpster and Wakefield Wastefield and so on). He constantly mocks other posters and blasts this forum for his political agendas like you so often did. I didn't come here to read what Softy thinks about politics or the white house. I've explained to you before that if all the posters here aired their political issues, we wouldn't have a Sox forum anymore. It's completely fair to expect Softy and yourself to show restraint on those issues so we can focus on the team we are rooting for. 

    Softy does know his baseball but I seriously doubt he would ever curtail his bashing of players, forum members, and those he disagrees with politically. I don't miss him. I've never seen Softy happy after a win but I've seen him gloat after a loss many times (if losses proved his theories correct).

    Besides, we already know Softy's position on every single player and issue so why do we need to hear him repeat them again and again? He likes Iggy and Middlebrooks, hates Drew and Ellsbury, hates Cherington though he backed off demanding Cherington be fired when he realized it was a ridiculous position....

    If BDC has finally taken action on softy I applaud it. Forum is better without him, I don't think he's willing to change. Let him find somewhere else to vent spleen. You on the other hand, I still think there is hope for you. Softy is like your big brother that gets you to smoke ciggies after school. Just say no and you'll go far...

     

       




    I don't think anyone should be banned for giving an opinion, as long as it is clean.  If you don't like what a poster says, use the ignore feature. Difference of opinion makes for an interesting forum, and usually adults welcome the challenge.

     

    I do agree that this forum should only be for baseball.

    I like all this talk about respect.  I think people can have honest and open debates without the name calling and nasty accusations.

    What I don't like is that those who called me all sorts of vile names, likened me to hitler and accused me of lusting over scantily clad women are calling out others.  People in glass houses.  Not all of you fall into this catagory but some of you do.

    You want polite discussions on the part of others but I see lots of name calling on this thread alone.  If I don't like someone I put them on ignore, I don't report them.  I believe some here would be banned if they were reported.  You shouldn't be so cocky, just be thankful we don't report you.

    Bill often says that posters don't recognize or appreciate his sense of humor. I suggest that Bill should footnote his humorous posts with *H when he says something that he considers to be funny.  Maybe his predictions that Papi would never play again were humor. Maybe all of his concerns about Papi were humor and we took him seriously while he thought that it was humor. There seems to be a misunderstanding here somewhere.




    I think that there are two things at play here.  I have been reading bill's posts for a long time and he does have a unique sense of humor, some people find it funny, some don't.  He also has his opinions on the players and the team, two different issues.

    I don't understand why some are getting attacked for their opinions about players.  Are we so pc in this country we can't even say something negative about a ball player?  Really???  He felt ortiz was washed up, so what, big deal. That was his opinion. 

    I'm not at all happy with ells, my opinion, I have a right to it.  I have been on this board for a long time and it seems to me that there is always a scape goat for others to pick on.  It changes because people come and go.  Bill wasn't a scape goat years ago but it appears people like to gang up on him now.

    I have no problem with Bill or anyone else having a negative opinion towards players or the team.

    Some folks simply love to complain.

    Some love be the board version of Peter Arnett. They need to be first with the bad news.

    Whatever...

     

    What I do have an issue with, is the repetitive posts.

    There was a point, this spring, where Bill was posting two, somtimes three threads per day, about how Ortiz was done.

    Do we get an equal number of posts saying he was wrong?

    Nope. We get a couple of "Oops, my bad" posts.

    And we're all expected to just move along and not bring it up.

I suggest that Bill should footnote his humorous posts with *H when he says something that he considers to be funny.  Maybe his predictions that Papi would never play again were humor. Maybe all of his concerns about Papi were humor and we took him seriously while he thought that it was humor. There seems to be a misunderstanding here somewhere.

     

     




    I think that there are two things at play here.  I have been reading bill's posts for a long time and he does have a unique sense of humor, some people find it funny, some don't.  He also has his opinions on the players and the team, two different issues.

     

     

    I don't understand why some are getting attacked for their opinions about players.  Are we so pc in this country we can't even say something negative about a ball player?  Really???  He felt ortiz was washed up, so what, big deal. That was his opinion. 

    I'm not at all happy with ells, my opinion, I have a right to it.  I have been on this board for a long time and it seems to me that there is always a scape goat for others to pick on.  It changes because people come and go.  Bill wasn't a scape goat years ago but it appears people like to gang up on him now.

    I used to observe this type of behavior in the school yard when I was a child.

    I have no problem with Bill or anyone else having a negative opinion towards players or the team.

     

    Some folks simply love to complain.

    Some love be the board version of Peter Arnett. They need to be first with the bad news.

    Whatever...

     

    What I do have an issue with, is the repetitive posts.

    There was a point, this spring, where Bill was posting two, somtimes three threads per day, about how Ortiz was done.

    Do we get an equal number of posts saying he was wrong?

    Nope. We get a couple of "Oops, my bad" posts.

    And we're all expected to just move along and not bring it up.

    I guess these types of things don't bother me.  If I don't want to post on a thread I ignore it.  If people would rather call me names than have an honest debate I ignore them.  I have seen lots of threads die because no one posted on them.  To me that's the best way to stop these types of threads.

    I didn't think ortiz was going to have the year he has been having.  Back in the day we could say negative things about players but now it seems we have to walk on egg shells, at least on this board.

     
  25. You have chosen to ignore posts from Bill-806. Show Bill-806's posts

    "LET ME BE CLEAR", I beg to differ, I have long ago ran up the whit flag on PAPI saying that I was very wrong.................. HOWEVAA, after he hit that standup 3 bagger on saturday, i really thought for sure that "it was all going to blow out".......  The Sox/us need to take all we can from PAPI while we can, the end is near !!!!      >RESPECT
