I never payed attention to him because i didn't really care about how many games he attended. i was saying it towards this season not his first or 4th season.

Lol bad for Carolina? How? He produces points and attends all 82 games of the season. Seems like a team player Carolina could use.

I think that's the most grammatically correct thing you've ever posted here. Only one sentence fragment! And proper capitalization and punctuation! I'm proud of you, BiB!

...wait, did you get your mom to post that for you?

Say what you want about BiB's broken English but he's bilingual which is a lot more than I can say for myself. Man I wish I could speak more than one language!

thanks we try to express ourself in our second language... sometimes it could be difficult be at least we try :P

well dude, that's really nice of you and i mean it, i seriously can't stand stuckup members here or on any forum making fun of posters with a sloppy english.

its laughable to see people making fun of someone who can speak 2 languages, especially if they can't. I mean its hard to argue that it means that that guy has close to twice the knowledge you have... kinda.

i've seen old dirty socks with better manners than some folks on here, ridiculous. We're all fans of the same team here i think it would only make sense to be somewhat kind to each other once in awhile and stop trolling on stupid stuff like that? its alright if ur 12 and immature i guess... which would explains a lot too for some posters lol

+3 I like to think of myself as having a great sense of humor, and I can take a joke, including ones at my expense but its also real easy to cross the line and it seems that more and more people now adays, in general not just on the internet, dont know where that line is, or maybe the purposely cross it because there is no repercussions doing it over the computer and not in person? Dont let people get to you BiB and from another member who has caught a good amount of crap from others on here, dont get into it with them, it not only fuels the fire but can get you snagged also. Once the season kicks off again, this isnt the place you want to be blocked out of. :cheers:

My problem with BiB is not with his sloppy English. I have no problem with the posts of foreign posters like SS-SS, caron, Chimaira, etc. My problem is with his insistence on posting so many messages in nearly every thread adding so little content and frequently having lots of spelling/grammatical errors. I understand that some people might not have perfect English, and that's totally fine, as long as they are adding to the conversation and their message is clear. But it seems like half the time BiB makes no effort at all to make his posts make any sense. The fact that he occasionally is now posting with much better spelling/grammar only further leads me to believe that he is just lazy and not legitimately struggling with English.

I apologize if I have offended any foreign posters as that was not my intention. :cheers:

Just reading this.... Ebonics comes to mind. I still say they should offer that as a foreign language. :unsure:

I have been too harsh on you so I apologize. I think everyone would appreciate it though if you do a quick proofread of all your posts and try to avoid too many errors so that your posts are easier to understand. I'm not trying to be message board police or chase you away or anything, it would just help out in the future.

An error like the one you said in the other thread were I made no sense" A to an An"? That isn't something I would always catch. I will try to look and pay attention to what I am tying so I make more sense. Thanks.

Ah here it is

"Well, normally I wouldn't, but since you asked:

1. "devils" needs to be capitalized.

2. "off season" should be hyphenated.

3. "a error" is incorrect, it should be "an error".

4. There was no punctuation in the last sentence, but I assume you meant it as a question."

I type a bit quicker so capitalizing Devils doesn't stick out to me as i am typing. As for 2 and 3(above) I know these mistakes, it's just I type quick and don't catch them. As I am 16, I am used to the Facebook and Cell Phone texting/slang. As I said i apologize to all.

In that post I was being picky just because you called me out. Like I said, obviously everyone makes minor errors, just make sure your sentences have some kind of punctuation and make sense and you'll be fine.

well my post wasn't directly pointing at you really eventhough thats what made me post this but we can certainly all agree that's there's some intense trolling from all kinds going on here lol and this was one of them so...

i mean i know some of that stuff is annoying and all, we all know it, but seriously some people here are way way way too butt tight and are taking this way too seriously, the worst is when some new guy is popping here and he's trying to be a part of it and start a new thread and there was already a similar thread... like i said I KNOW its annoying but jesus christ... people could just politely tell him that there's already a thread about it and that he should check next time or something... but nop... 8 times out of 10 the poor guy is getting RIPPED... not sure they feel like posting at all after that

i mean come on, this is a cool place and we're getting more and more members/new fans and thats what any team want... more fans... more interest... more interaction...

not too sure we're helping if we're sh!tting on every newbies making an error or having some kind of bad start, and im seriously sick of having all those "forum cops" who act like they are the sh!t and own the place... you wouldnt see msweet or any respected poster here act like a jerk like some are, there's no point to make anyone feel like sh!t when they have good intentions.

anyway... thats that... again its not against you im just getting this off my chest

Question about Zach. If i am correct because of the Arbitration we have him for this upcoming season right? If Lou wanted to be dbag(Sorry Lou) could he wait till next off-season to Re-Sign Parise? I ask because we have alot coming off of the books at that time.

I agree with 99% of what is being said here in this "Web Board Etiquette" conversation.

I'd simply point out that this "gentle reminder" regarding thread creation has been done frequently here by many of the kind vets to the same new posters. New posters are the life blood of message boards like this - but its always good to get a feel for a new web community.

Some not only choose to ignore it - but even insist that its not a good way to do things and they can't be bothered to follow the will of the overall board.

I think that attitude might be what has got some folks on a short fuse.

Yeah but its not that he would just want be an a$$hole and wait till next season it would be because they havent reach an agreement, but we better pray that they do cause Zach could very well decide to test the market cause i remember from one of his interview on TG's blog that he said that if youre UFA, why sign during the season? and that you might as well wait for july 1st and see whats out there...

i really really didnt like reading this coming from Zach... anybody remember from what interview it was from?

I think you have to realize this:

1.)Lou has a lot of pieces in motion

a.) Parise new contract

b.) Potential Larsson ELC

c.) LTIR Player w/possible retirement - or uncertainty - Salvador

d.) Dead weight or Overpaid Toxic contracts: Rolston/ Zubrus

e.) Coach and Style

2.) He also has needs:

a.) Make the defense more mobile

d.) Not be stuck in cap hell/roster management on day 1

To accommodate all these machinations in the way that best serves the team he is going to restrict details until the best decisions are made in order not to tip his hand relative to cap space or potential trades. He doesn't want anyone to have the advantage in terms of negotiation. I also think Lou i still saavy enough (along with the benefit of cap/floor increase) to make all these multiple tasks work at once and come out ahead.

Again, he's more concerned about solving this complex equation with multiple variables in flux - than putting out a press release of "Parise Re-Signs" (if there is a deal in place) so that some folks on Devils boards throughout the internet can add a new signature to their message board profile or whatever. Patience and not panic is key.

I don't see a knee-jerk reaction yet like a bloated Kaberle signing or some other bad UFA. I'm not thrilled with the Greene contract - but it could be a case of stability on the defense - or at least a tradechip for the future. Better to have the assets than not - and it seems at least moveable unless AG lets the rest of the league know his true inconsistencies. Lets hope he plays fair minutes and looks good. BUT - at least Lou's not REACTING like we've seen before with the Zubrus, Rachunek, Vishy, Oduya - type signings of bad contacts. This gives me hope.

The worst news of the day is that Yandle re-upped with PHX, as a trade for a nice yound player like him with a reasonable contract could have been the key.

There's a lot going on behind the scenes and I'm sure Lou has a macro-plan.

He sees all the pieces of the machine - we don't yet.

In Lou we trust :koolaid:
