Name calling is just the tip of the iceberg on this board. The real issue is people trying to prop themselves up by trying to make others look bad. Comments like 'you know nothing', or "stupid thread" and the like, are not name calling, but are just as bad, or worse. They reveal a complete lack of awareness of others as well as show a complete self-absorbtion attitude that causes all the friction and distain that this board generates. I think a more appropriate contest would be:
"Who wants to agree to the following?" -
"I'll respect your opinion even if I don't agree with it."
"I won't try to minimize what you're posting by making veiled slams against your thinking."
"I'll have a meaningful discussion with you as long as you want. Once you cave in to abusive behavior, I'll retreat without following you. You'll know that you have taken the low road by my silence."
"I promise not to try to make myself look good by trying to make you look bad or stupid."
"I'll refrain from calling you a troll."
"I'm going to like you even if you don't like me. After all, we all like football"
"I'll bury the hatchet as of now with any of you that I've offended or with any of you that I have taken offense."
If you can agree with the above, then we'll see a remarkable improvement on this board.
If you're asking Babe to do this don't waste your breath. This board's purpose is for him to have a place to act macho without having to worry about getting b'slapped. He doesn't post on the offical Pats board because his kind of childish idiocy isn't tolerated there. Plus you actually have to know something about football.
For years this was a good board with dozens of knowledgeble Pats fans. If we wanted to engage in insulting there was always Leon the Jets boy to kick around. Since children like Babe came in we all went to the Pats board
Yep. Spot on, Evil.
Funny how glenr is trashing internet tough guys, while he's being an internet tough guy. Very comical fake account there Rusty.
Yup the old childish Rusty escape. Actually little sweetie I don't play internet tough guy but obviously you see me as a threat to your little kingdom otherwise you wouldn't be posting about me after claiming you put me on ignore. Not surprising since you couldn't even 'quit this' board for 24 hours. Obviously your whole self image revolves around your prancing around here.
