In response to 67redsox's comment:
Come on s5 bill has been great lately. Tvfrank bates bill and you go after bill, really? I don't respond to tvfrank because he doesn't post anything of interest.
Tvfrank is rude, plain and simple. Calling someone dumb is rude. I thought we were all past the childish name calling. I wish bill would just ignore tvfrank because there is no point to do a back and forth with him.
I believe you are better than this s5
Yeah, you know, *I* think I'm better than this too, but my breaking point has been reached. In the beginning I saw Bill as being some old guy (ostensibly with bad eyesight - which is now in question) who was unable to get outside and his only contact with real life was things like this Sox chat board, so I cut him a lot of slack with his politics. But now I and many other posters have had enough.
I hear what you're saying, I do. But how is backing tvfrank and his attacks helping? There are many here who attack me but I have chosen to either ignore them if they use childish name calling or to engage them in a great debate if they want to keep it civil.
He's been asked nicely - and not so nicely - to stop with the politics here and he continues to ignore those requests. It's not just Bill being baited. You say he's been better lately but just a couple of days ago Bill STARTED a thread about 'Bengazhi, the Big O and Obamacare'. How is that being baited?? He can't make three consecutive posts without throwing in a "Big -O" comment and I and several others have had enough of it.
He claims to be a patriot and yet continues to disrespect the Office of the President of the United States. How is that being a patriot? Your party lost the election. Live with it and wait until the next election. That's how it works.
This is a republic with certain freedoms, at least for now. We have freedom of speech in this country and are allowed to criticize those in public office who are elected to serve us, thankfully. Obama's numbers have crashed in the last 12 months so the majority of americans believe the president is doing a bad job. Bill, I and others believe obama is doing a terrible job.
Patriots love their country and want what's best for americans. We believe obama has hurt more than helped. Obamacare is a good example. He is not a dictator, we have a right to speak our mind.
We are not disrespecting the office of the presidency. If anyone did that it was bill clinton and his girlfriend.
Please everyone, don't attack me for talking politics. I'm simply having a nice back and forth with S5.
I agree that this is a sox board but... Posters bring up lots of subjects here that have nothing to do with the sox. The gay basketball player comes to mind. If a poster agrees with the majority here then talking about other things is fine. If a poster doesn't agree with the majority here then they are attacked for not talking sox.
And this doesn't even touch on the fact that he now has ~17,000 posts saying "BINGO" or the like. Note to Bill: Quantity is not the same as quality.
Bingo is harmless as far as I'm concerned. To me it's the same as 'I agree', 'well said', or +1.
In spite of Bill's denials I'm still not convinced that he's not Softy with a new way to disrupt the board.
It's not unreasonable to ask Bill to keep his political comments and innuendos to the political board and as long as he keeps doing what he's doing I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing. The ball is in Bill's court.
If you feel the need to police what bill says so be it. I still think you are a good person
Thank you. I do too. :-)
Rather than hijack this entire thread even more with this discussion I'll say only that I respect your opinion and your right to it.
As for me, my opinion hasn't changed and judging from some of the comments I'm reading I would say that I'm not the only one who feels this way. What bothers me is that Bill is WINNING. He's been asked repeatedly to stop with the political slams but he intentionally continues to do it for the same reason that "music" now has lyrics that would offend a sailor and anti-abortion people can show pictures of aborted fetuses. BECAUSE HE CAN. In his own way Bill is a troll, intentionally doing all he can to disrupt the board and all the while hiding behind the personna of a poor, misunderstood senior citizen.
As I said before, I think it's reasonable to ask someone who continually pollutes every thread he visits with his political barbs to stop doing it and take it to the politics board. If he chooses not to do so he does it at his own peril. That ball is in his court.
specifically @ 67 now... It's a shame that the PM's have been disabled. This could be a good, respectful discussion between us but I don't want to subject the rest of the world to it - and I'm fairly certain they don't want to read it! :-)
