I just think it's a stupid thread because it's January.
Funny how you took two novels and three posts to explain that, and yet you've called it a stupid thread for other reasons too. So which is it, because it's January? Because we're obsessed? Because we're not allowed to diss your precious team? Or because of some other reason which you haven't explained yet?
Besides, your own board or at least your former board is meltdown central after this weekend. If we're arrogant
for pooh-poohing your chances what does that make your own fans who have jumped off faster than rats on a sinking ship this weekend? How are we THAT arrogant when your own fans (and you at times too) are such skeptics?
Someone posting a photo of Lindros down on all fours was disgusting and a lowpoint for this place.
Oh please, as if Ranger$ fans are above crossing the line? How about the Ranger$ fans chanting "Get a Porsche" at Hextall after Pelle Lindbergh's accident? How about Ranger$ fans chanting Potvin sucks STILL?
If anything the Lindros thing proves this board can police itself and doesn't need your Moral Highness telling us what we can and can't post. Honestly that is one of your biggest problems. You act as if you have to be the moral conscience of the board and that really comes across as looking down on us, and it comes off ESPECIALLY bad because you're not even a Devils fan and you're telling us what we can and can't post on our board.
And it's funny how you sometimes whine and complain that we're unfair to you because you're a Ranger$ fan and yet we tolerate you more than the Cafe, where you're not allowed to post anymore! Your own board! Seems to me as if we're not being anywhere near as unreasonable as you think, and that we're not the reason for your problems with us.
And as for your comments about the "younger posters" stop trying to make it an age thing. I've seen illogical older posters and I've seen great younger posters. It's not about age. Fact is you have problems with pretty much ALL of us at times, problems that are usually caused when you take mere disagreements and turn them into personal affronts. And you frequently act as immature as the younger posters you (who you're not THAT much older than yourself) decry, at least when you're in your Hyde mode, or is it Jekyll?
Honestly you do come off as a real Jekyll/Hyde type. All peachy when everything's going well and borderline insane the first little disagreement/difference of opinion you have with someone. I, for one am tired of this bipolar act. Either stop taking every little slight or perceived slight as cause to start a war, or make your hiatus permanent, because as good of a poster as you can be, it won't do us or yourself
any good to stick around if you're gonna be this bent out of shape by every little thing we post or say as much as you may deny you're bent out of shape by every little thing we post or say.
