In response to J-BAY's comment:
Well..since..as I stated here..I have no idea who Pike is then your comment makes no sense. Moreover..the idea that someone..on an anonymous discussion board..is accusing new posters of being this "pike" person is simply ludicrous.
How do you know these posters are pike? I have been around a long time but I haven't seen a lot of posts warning newbies about pike. What I have seen are newbies being accused of being pike after just a few posts. I don't think that's helping newbies to feel welcomed here.
How did he ruin the game thread? I used to post there sometimes and didn't see any problems.
I think you are a great poster j-bay and I'm not trying to be difficult. These are sincere questions.
67, he posted in the gamethreads under multiple screen names, and insulted any poster or post who said anything negative about the Sox. IDK, you may not have known it was him or noticed. Pike has his own "unique" way of posting and doesn't take long to recognize it. Is it an issue and unfair to a new posters to be labled, sure it is. but pike created it, not the posters who are trying to give a heads up to others, who are being targeted. Pikes latest was Tampa2013, pretending to be a Rays fan to stir up trouble. He did it last night on the gamethread, posters who didn't know it was him, then continued it on the forum. His tampa2013 account has been banned, but he's in there as raysfanl, too
