" I've asked this before and BostonTrollSpanker ignores me."
I'm a die hard Boston sports fan, though not by your definition of fan. I'm passionate about the local teams and sometimes that means the teams frustrate me.
Are you a Boston fan spanking trolls?
Yes, I do a bit of that, but more than anything I enjoy free flowing conversations with folks who have a variety of opinions. You don't like that, but I do. In all honesty I would probably change my handle if I could, I created it on a whim and then when I stuck around wished I could change it, but I'm not willing to create another persona like you often do after you are banned or whatever.
Or are you a rival fan spanking positive Boston fans whom you consider to be bad for a Red Sox forum?
You may have noticed I disagree with a lot of folks here, and agree with others. I try not to play favorites here, just respond honestly to things. That may be hard to wrap your head around. I take issue with negativity sometimes as well. And hey, if you post something I agree with, which is rare because you don't often talk about baseball, then I'm glad to say "right on!" I don't hold a grudge here.
You seem to dislike positive fans and even advocated recently that RS fans should be delegated to a seperate forum? A forum where anything goes.
Umm, no, you totally misunderstood that. I was suggesting those fans who want to keep things always positive deserved to have a forum where that could happen. IN ADDITION to this forum which is a free for all. This could never be that forum due to how it is moderated. But I do believe that those fans who want to only have happy talk should have their place for that. I actually respect positive fans but I don''t like trolls, which I consider you to be. I also don't like people who are compulsively positive or negative, I call out negativity sometimes too. I just like people who are honest and real and are here to learn and have fun. You don't seem to laugh much, I do. That's a big difference between us.
To me you sound like a closet Yankee fan. Why not admit it?
Dude I hate the Yankees. That's why I am on a Boston sports forum. I have lived in Massachusetts for most of my life. If you pay attention you know I post in all our forums, though rarely in the Bruins forum. I hope someday you will realize that just because someone prefers more honest assessments than you that they can still be just as much of a fan as you claim to be. One of the amazing things about you is that you still don't understand why watching a team you care about fall apart on every level, from ownership on down, can be a rough experience for fans. You advocate a kind of blind faith that I just don't subscribe to. In my free time I read books like Brave New World and 1984, whereas I suspect you are more the Harry Potter type. To each their own. Sure, I bring a fairly cynical world view in here. But I was thrilled with our championship victories and in case you didn't notice, I have defended the legacies of those from those teams who get bashed in here many times
But of course you wouldn't notice that because you are more into stereotyping people and accusing them of being fans of other teams then reckoning with the nuances.
I hope that addresses your questions. And no, I wasn't ignoring you, it's just I have a few things to do in my real life besides following these threads each day. Maybe from here on out you can focus a bit more on baseball talk and a bit less on telling others whether they are true fans or not.
