One thing is for sure..the topic of David Ortiz is good for business on BDC. I think the Ortiz threads wind up with the most hits and comments..lol
Speaking as someone who admires Ortiz' talents on the field...but who does not admire him so much on a personal level..I will say this - the Ortiz threads become so contentious because the ardent Ortiz supporters..the ones who believe that he can do no wrong..ever..no matter what...etc must have everyone feel exactly the way they do. In their minds..there is no room for disagreement. If you are critical of Ortiz...you are immediately branded an Ortiz Hater and then subject to personal attack or insult....even though there is literally no other player on the team who is not subject to some criticisms at some times..etc...etc.
In other words..some people believe that Ortiz is above any commentary other than 100 percent unconditional love and support for everything he say or does.
I think you get my point. In other words there is no room for discussion or honest evaluation where our beloved Papi is concerned in the minds of some.
It's my belief that this behavior is much worse and makes the forum much more tedious than anything the Bill806's of this forum do. It's a discussion board..where people come to discuss, share opinions, agree, disagree and learn from each other.
A thread that has 1000+ comments where at least half of them are personal attacks at Bill ..etc. proves that quantity is NOT better than quality.
