    Kim - with all due respect - your latest comment is of a person who has no point and protects it by repeating yourself over and over again. Please do not flatter yourself by thinking you are above me intellectually in anyway, shape or form.

    As for this abuse you keep talking of. There have been several Yankee fans or supposed Yankee fans who were abusive. And it was Yankee fans who attempted to shut them down. What outrages some of us is your continued harping on issues when we just want to talk baseball.

    I think that can be called a troll. 

    Freedom fighter is probably more like it.  

    I've used another reference before to describe this relentless and perfect poster: Judge Freisler

    Are you going to be advertising another site here? Jeez.. I thought Zac recruiting posters here to that site years ago was enough. Do you want more there?

    Steven - I have no desire to partake in a war of threads with Kim. She can say and think all she wants, that is fine and I will respect her right to say them. I just wish she would open herself up to the possibility that this cabal of posters, supposedly from Trufan are just people who like to talk sports and nothing else.

    Although I believe I registered at that site, I don't think I ever partook in any conversation there, once BDC fixed the forum format here.

    Fair enough. As far as the trufan site is concerned, I don't know the whole story, beyond Pike misidentifying me there (I've never been on it, short of trying to figure out who this person was after the fact).

    You might recall that person there I suppposedly was: a RS fan living in Derry NH; who was also a jailed 42 yr old martial arts instructor (who instructed other instructors), that had a large # of girlfriends. Too bad some of this wasn't true (especially the age)

    Nope, not advertising at all.  I just want people to know the facts.  And I think it will lead into a good discussion about interaction between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans.

    I think Trufan is where someone went after me and posted my real photo on this forum. I thought it was pretty funny, although I did appreciate those here in RSN who went after Pike for that. I cannot recall if in fact is was Pike who did this.

    Really? Because I think it would be weird to advertise another site on this board. Doesn't matter how much you love it there, it is another site.

    And there is no problem between Yankee and Sox fans. Unless they're here to annoy people. There is no "THE YANKEE FANS" group in reality. It's all individual posters. And people like you should try to understand that.

    OK, that's funny, assuming you're not serious, which is always possible.

    BTW, did you see the Sophie's Choice movie? Just wondering.

    Of course I did. I thought, as I usually do when I've read the book before seeing the movie, that the book was much better. I just enjoyed Turow's writing and descriptions of things. Can't remember exactly, but there was a line about eating bananas or something and basically just enjoying the day, while in another part of the world, Sophie was having to deal with her decision. It just made you think about how different lives can be, and to be more aware of it.

    It is rare that a movie does a book justice. Not enough time due to the urge to keep it short enough to sell. One of the few exceptions was GWTW; Lord Of The Rings and No Country For Old Men were good too, while a little skimpy due to the time allotment thing. Which is why Director's cuts in general are better, especially Rings (but long) and Blade Runner (a Philip Dick adaptation of the book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep). The movie Misery (Stephen King)  , while cut up to shreds, was still good. Every Clancy movie rendition was an abomination; especially the great book Patriot Games; practically the entire movie was the last 50 pages, where all the action was, that was set up by the first 400 pages.

    Usually, TV mini-series do better, such as the Thorn Birds, both ROOTS, and ShoGun, all way back when.

    There was a mammoth length German film called Berlin Alexanderplatz ( book based) ; that was fantastic. 

    The recent movies Carlos (The famous terrorist) and Che (ditto, sort of), while long, I also recommended.

    It is only politenesss which has kept most of us from saying "Kim is a possible poster of the year?" You've got to be kidding.

    My kids started boomerangs.com when they were 8 and 13 years old. 
    I thought at the time that it would help their company by using the name in my online identities. I have brought up the company maybe 1 or 2 times max out of my thousands of posts here, and only in context of a question i think. I have thought about changing my identity before just out of making it less confusing for others but I was already thousands of posts into it.

    All that aside, if you don't realize that Zac is a tremendous poster here you either:

    1) Don't read many posts on this forum or
    2) Are a worthless troll yourself. You have to be intentionally stupid to be that incoherent.

Boom, apparently, admires that. And you, the author of a thread mocking a Sox player who hasn't really even been a part of this team, criticizing what I say is hilarious. He's a big boy, he can defend himself. Although, posting it after 4:00 when I'm usually done posting was probably not accidental.

    I don't care whether you believe I'm poster of the year quality. I, myself, offered to give my spot up so I totally get that. I, honestly, have no idea why you're talking about your business. My references to you being self-promoting was more in regard to your interest in working with 791, and offering your services to him. He's a big time Yankee supporter, and you can, at times, seem to be following in his footsteps.

    Your support of a Yankee troll here is so over the top, that you have to wonder why someone would take that stand. You don't even know him. All you know is that he's a Yankee homer who polices a Sox board 24/7, and puts abusive pics up of Sox fans using other people's children. Your defense of him makes ZERO sense,
     
    And FTR, with those choices, I'm intentionally stupid.
