    This Forum I resign and have no intentions of coming back

    This forum used to be about Red Sox baseball. That forum has gone the way of the dinosaurs extinct.

    There are far too many here that

    just call people names---pay no attention to facts---only use facts that work for their theory

    I love my Red Sox but this forum has become ruined by posters who are more about making degrading remarks about other posters. We all have seen some make very good comments only to be called an idiot, rube, moron, etc...

    For 4 years it was fun coming here this past year has been very disappointing.I do not see it getting better and I fully understand why many great posters have left.

    I have always tried to stay on topic and tried not always succeeded to not do any name calling. Sorry if I did call you a name it will not happen again.

    BDC Dottie this forum has been in the gutter for awhile. I am out of here for the forseeable future.

    It is no longer fun coming here talking RS and baseball

    Good Night and Good Bye

    I'm coming back on Jim and you're going off?  Something is wrong about this.  I totally agree that personal attacks have no place here or on any other board.  However, when someone gets personal with you sometimes you have to retaliate while others on the board have to let the person who started it to knock it off and fast.  OTOH, I have also seen that when posters knock players or front office personnel they get attacked for that too.  That to be is bogus.  Posters being attack should be off limits, but the team, its players and the front office, it should be open season on them if they are found to be wanting.  Sorry you are leaving.  I've always liked reading your posts when I post here from time to time.  I used to be a regular here until mid-2008 when the format changed and there was no way to know directly if someone answered directly to your post.  Reconsider Jim.

    I know how you feel but don't abandon those of us who like good baseball talk. We can't afford to lose a poster like you.

    Just do what I do -- avoid the troublemakers and just participate where there's a good discussion goin on.

    I rarely post during the season here, Jim, because if this team loses two games in a row, the whiners and "I told you so" posters are out in full force.  There are way more people who are more concerned about being "right" about the players on and off the roster than they are about rooting for the team on the field.  Best of luck to you...I'm with you...Go Sox!

    Jim,

     

        I will miss you.

     

        Your sign off line on a previous edition of this forum said it all.

     

      Win, lose, 1st or last  - It's loving the Sox that matters.

       Enjoy our team, friend.

     

       I do understand your feelings about the negativity and the maroonishness ...

     

          Hope you make it back from time to time.

     

     

       I've been just too busy to be an active part.

    Hi Jim, 

    I have to agree in all aspects of your email so for the same reasons I'm bugging out of the forum. The trolls as I've named them as well as the negative BOO BIRDS have taken over this forum to the point where there is constant name calling of players and other posters who the trollls disagree with. I do find myself name calling on ocassion in defense of RS players and sometimes in jest. Too many posters on this forum form opinions based on their predudice or plain out hatred for certain players while showing a complete lack of knowledge of the game itself. I'm sick of it and will not participate in this charade of a forum on BDC any longer. 

    I'm tired of the reactionary nature of many members as well who are ready to dump player or players based on salary and not on the field performance, dump om players who may be in a temporary slump, etc. 

    Goodbye to all of my true freinds on this board.

    I went after people who used used one or two numbers to support their theory and disregarded the rest. I went after those who used last nights game as support for a guy to be DFAd. I went after guys who used a theory to dump a guy they hated but used the opposite theory for the guy they loved. like Pedroia vs Ells there has been talk of Ells lack of power but none on Dustin. One is liked the other is not. Please do not go with Average as the threads were when both were hitting 300.
    There are sacred cows on the RS Pedroia is currently the RS sacred cow. Ortiz used to be one.

    Yes you are right I went after some posters but it was always the ones who were full of sh1t and were only here to beat up on other posters and players. The same ones that would never answer facts and continue to use BS to support their claims. Yes I did "attack" with facts not just my opinion and I always apologized when I was wrong. I never ran away and started another thread on a similar subject. I always stood for what I said

    sorry to see you go Jim. We go back a long time to the old boston herald forum days. I'll miss you man. People like you and Yoshimi in my opinion brought alot of knowledge and dignity to this forum. I'm thinking about taking a break myself. what makes me chuckle the most is that the trolls that constantly patrol this forum with their insults and put downs are so called red sox fans.

    best of luck my friend.

    I haven't posted on the Sox board since the first few games of the year. And I while I respect Jim's feelings, I have to think that if you have to post that the forum has gone the gutter route, it's again a me-me attitude, woe is me way of thinking. Post, don't post, cry, don't cry. People have been taking things personally on this board for years, and others have gone the bonkers route, simply becoming a devil's advocate because they know it annoys everyone else, or they claim they are geniuses because it's the opposite of what a moon says. Or they police the room, which is rubber-room time for those posters. Making it a personal point to say you are leaving the Sox board is unfortunately another reason why the board has sucked for years. If you want to talk baseball, then do it. Don't cry about it.
