In response to Davedsone's comment:
Why do you come here? Oh, you are insecure and like to troll. Go play at a Denver site.
What I don't understand if why this site lets these creeps on here! I have them all on ignore because they ad nothing to the conversations. They must live really pathetic lives to troll on another teamsMB!!
I copy and paste this from another post I made about trolls. Papa John does not bother me because I don't respond to him. You guys continue to do so & he loves the fame---yup, your derogatory remarks give him his jollies. He has and continues to aggravate you because you let him/her.
I reiterate that much of the aggravation can be avoided by ulitimately not responding to a troll & feeding him/her. Their satisfaction is knowing they upset us.
Thus, I fail to understand why so many posters get angry when non local fans get on a Boston forum and root against our teams. This is, in fact, freedom of speech. Being a long time Boston teams fan and realizing our Sox-Yankees, Celtics-Lakers etc. rivalries, yup I get upset when NY & LA fans(trolls) or fans of other teams don’t like ours but, fortunately, I realize that whatever they say demeaning to our team/players/predicting a loss etc. has no effect on the outcome of the game decided on the field. However many root against us will not influence our team to lose. And then this in many cases instigates name calling and if you have fun going back and forth with someone or a few like in a tennis match because you can't agree on something, good for you. In my opinion, calling someone a name because they discredited your team feeds the troll & with his/her belly full, he/she responds. You tell them to go away, go on another board, on their own board etc. but I prefer that if I disagree or am upset at a person’s personal insults on me or my team, then I offer what I hope is an objective opinion and do this a couple of times in rebuttal and when there is no agreement, an impasse, in my opinion, it is the more reasonable person who backs away. I have always found that it is a no win situation trying to argue with a person who is unreasonable. Anyway, my $.02 !!!
