    Grenade launchers

    No sense listing names, we all know who they are ... folks who post drivel here for the sole purpose of ticking somebody off and getting a repsonse, which gets another response, which leads to a thread. And they get off on baiting us.

    I've been guilty of playing along in the past, arguing with the "Fire Coma" crowd and certain others who show up only when things are going bad. Or, yes, certain fans of other teams who like to stir the pot from time to time.

    Anyway ... the best way, and only way, to handle them is to ignore them, either by hitting the ignore button or just being the bigger person and not responding (which is what they want in the first place).

    If everyone does this, before you know it, the idiots will be gone. (And I don't mean the good idiots from '04).

    morning LD, it seems that the 'not responding' part is the one that always goes awry, sometimes due to third man in, name calling, and those who are just going to say what they want to say...

    Glad you clarified that, Lloyd.

    :o)

    I was always glad to were the title of idiot, because that's what they used to call this guy .

    Then the '03 & '04 Sox came a;ong and I wore the moniker with supreme pride.

    But you are really right.  I have to resisit getting into it.  More often than not,
    I succeed.  But not always.

    :o)

    Heck of a game last night.

    Agree with both of you guys.  Jete's right...it's usually the "opposite reaction" thing that lights the fuse.

    It's so hard not to respond to the idiotic vitriol that gets posted here sometimes.  I literally just found myself deleting my response to "The Babe" and "Jesseyerica".  Honestly, the attempts at hijacking others' names is pretty low. 

    This was one of those times where my wife tells me to write out the response, then delete it.  It's actually pretty cathartic.

    Re: Grenade launchers

      Maybe a Private Room Part II for all of the "Good" Posters is needed so you won't have to put up with all the "Drivel" (Anything Anti Tito I guess)?? Speaking for myself I would never want Tito fired at this point of the season, it's already to late, for better or worse we're stuck with him, to the hopefully wonderful ending promised by all who believe in Tito. I'm just happy Theo edged his bet by Surrounding him with All Stars and is working, at this very moment, to secure more. What I like about the "Good" Posters is they explain every move, or non move, Tito makes with the "Big Picture" or "Longview" in mind and nothing he does or doesn't do is wrong. As much as you dislike the drivel about the Bad things I dislike all the drivel about all the "Good" things. There is a lot of gray area with Tito, the manager not the man, and I will never care for his style of managing, obviously The powers to be don't agree with me. I have come to accept that but, will never give up second guessing, or for the most part with Tito, Pre Guessing and wondering why he went the way he did. Wait, don't tell me, I know... THE BIG PICTURE. Have a great Day !!

    Look, I'm a Tito supporter, but those who feel like yourself certainly have every right to have their say here.  I think disagreement is fine as long as we stay civil with each other.  I've had some back-and-forths with you and I have no problems with any of your responses to me...hopefully you feel the same about mine.  I know I get a little snarky sometimes when I'm sticking up for Tito.

    It's not about somebody having a different opinion. It's about those not interested in an intelligent discussions. There's a BIG difference so don't try to twist the meaning of lloyd's post.

    In the Tito example, posters like 1941 aren't interested in an intelligent exchanges. They post the same lame ... OK, drivel ... all the time. There have been good discussion on whether or not Tito made the right move or non-move, but you'll never find it on a thread involving him (and some others).

    I'm not talking about disagreement and debate. That's all fine ... as long as it's civil. If you don't like Francona, that's your right. It's also my right to find that completely nonsensical

    Again, I'm talking about the grenade launchers ... i.e., those who show up simply to agitate.

    Good general advice, LD, although I'm not going to follow it and spoil some of my fun.  Some of these aholes are fun to mess with as they're not very bright.  Think of it like watching Yosemite Sam, the Martian, and Elmer Fudd in action, although I wouldn't lump them all in the same category.  Elmer Fudd has a compassionate side that one can empathize with, Yosemite Sam does not but is an interesting character nonetheless, are the Martian lacks a human soul altogether.  I think of our resident trolls in much the same way.
