In Response to Re: Wussball : I've never said anything about your posts before, because, I too believe, you should have the freedom to say what you want. But I also believe other posters should as well without the threat of being reported or banned by an overwhelming Yankee fans/friends majority. This is not about not liking Yankee fans because they have a different allegiance. This is about using that same excuse whenever one of them is abusive to posters here. If they are going to come to a rival team's forum, they should respect the posters here, and not tell posters what they're allowed to say about a rival team, and, most importantly, not try to make it into their own board -- or even a dual team board. It's not, nor should it be. Let's not forget they came all the way to Boston.com to post on a Sox board, and pretend they are shocked that posters like the Sox more than other teams. It doesn't help if they refuse to spend ANY time on their own team's board. And yes, my father is a Yankee fan, orginally from the Bronx, NY, to be precise. I believe he would, as would many other Yankee fans, be embarrassed by some of the Yankee fans that post here. Again, it has nothing to do with allegiance. They are individual people just like the Sox fans here, and should be judged as such. You're a very intelligent man. I don't think you are misunderstanding what I've said a million times already. So, I don't know why you're pretending not to get it, unless it's to support them no matter what they do or say here. JMOKim

, I'm not pretending
anything. I'd think you know me enough to know this.
I'm aware of the issues you've had with other NY posters. I can't control what goes on with that. I have my issues with some of the NY lice, as well as some RedSox posters. If it's not about allegiance, why make allegiance an issue?
You get along with Burrito/Pike
. Should I criticize you or think less of you as a result?
I went back and forth with Carnie several times on several threads about music, film, etc. I like Carnie. We have many similar interests. Same with Steve. I don't care who they root for. If it bothers others that we communicate as we do, we'll isolate it. I have no problem with that.
In fact, I'd prefer not to discuss this subject matter on this thread.
Let's go there on a thread dedicated to it. I don't think others appreciate it otherwise.
