Internet cliques mocking other participants on the site, a small group bullying others to compensate for their low self-esteem, false personas created and carefully managed to have their status - such as it is - maintained within the group - no one needs you to work out your deep-seated psychological issues on the site
most of us are just here to have fun and take a break, not deal with the grade school mentality you apparently never matured from ... basically just grow the #$%^ up
Well you are entitled to your opinion - in my opinion your a holier than thou, Self important turd
Sincg, he is talking about you as you should know. You just proved it there.
Re: Re: cliques
Well seeing how I wasn't even involved in the 1st Battle Royale, he couldn't be talking about me, and you should have taken Abe Lincoln 's advice and remained silent and thought to be a fool, rather than to speak and prove it.
Napla, you sound like the most humorless person alive.
Only a world-class curmudgeon would get his panties in a bunch over such silliness as the Battle Royale, which was only a long creative writing exercise.
And then you go further, talking about cliques and bullying and people desperate for recognition - all a vast conspiracy to grind down the true independent spirits of the site. (i.e. you)
Any "bullying" that's occurring is because you're writing things that are completely absurd. What do you expect? Everyone to respond with, "Man, that Nap is a paragon of wisdom!"
Re: Re: cliques
Some write satirical wrestling matches to get one type of reaction. Some write satirical overreactions to satirical wrestling matches to get a different type of reaction.
As the great Charles Wise often asked, "What kind of nut are you?"
Sincity, you are an @$$. Could you just not post anything for a couple of days? I have friends who are getting annoyed with your posts. Take me seriously.
Re: Re: cliques
Take you seriously Auntietrash?? You have friends who are getting annoyed? you really can’t be serious? What are you going to do? all get together and huff and puff and blow my house down?? Suffice it to say your ominous tone doesn’t scare me, go yell at a girl scout for coming on your property to sell cookies, I never even knew you existed until you decided to disparage me and now you have a problem with me responding? Please, just for the edification of all of the Boards users what will be the repercussions of my continued defense and in all fairness, retaliation to your uninformed, mean spirited, garbage?
FACT: people like unclecash and me make up the majority of users on this site. Most of us happily manage our teams/leagues without resorting to the idiocy described above. I obviously struck a nerve with the small group who, for whatever reason, seek to compensate for their marginalization in real life by such behavior on the boards. You can't handle the truth! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMz..
Nap, you are actually a smart person. Sincity, cool down. You are calling me and telling me that I am what you are. I don't want to be like ya. "Most holy, self important turd". Cool down! Don't post for a couple of days. I doubt you are even liked by a ton of people on this site. If you act like this to everyone but gus, then there is no way you are like by anyone. You probably have sprinklers go off if anyone walks on your 1 inch property. Just take a break for a while, cool down, and get your half cent temper in control.
Ok guys. Time to wrap up this fascinating foray into the human condition. Just a couple of conclusions.
- I think everyone is on this site to have fun. I know I am. Most of it is baseball related but a bit of it is social. All you guys are lots of fun. Sometimes though, it goes a bit too far. Name calling, etc. Careful guys. It doesn’t do anyone any good. I think we all need to read our own posts and be honest about what we see. I’ve checked mine. Lots of humor. Great stuff. Most of it self-deprecating. Lots of good-natured ribbing based on what all of you yourselves put here on the boards and chat boxes for all to see. There does have to be a bit of “if you can’t take it, don’t dish it out.”
- if you’re going to accuse others of being in cliques and ganging up on people, make sure you’re not doing that yourselves. If I’m not mistaken, these threads started by someone attacking my just-for-fun Battle Royale thread. That’s fine I guess. I didn’t feel bullied by that. But then, don’t come back later and accuse OTHER people of bullying when they simply defended my writing. That’s the pinnacle of hypocrisy.
- lastly, “disliking” almost everything that other people post doesn’t feel very life-giving. Ouch. Have a heart guys! Even Canadians have feelings like everybody else!!
Oh yeah, and ...
I dislike what I .on't like. I wasn't saying you were in on anything, gus. I am talking to sincity
Re: Re: cliques
Thanks for " Pulling the Chain" Gus, There are MANY threads on the Boards that don't interest me, Like ones where people are looking for owners to join " the most realistic, and in depth League on PC" I know that I don't want to join that League, not that there is anything wrong with that type of League, it's just not what I want to do. so I chose to imply IGNORE that thread.
That being said, Life is about choices, I choose not to read those strings because they don't interest me, I don't feel its required to say "that whole format sucks, you have to be a pocket Protector wearing nerd to join it" that's the difference of what happened here.
If you wanted your name to be removed from consideration, like I requested last year, it was, no harm no foul. If you are not interested in the Battle Royale String you could chose to ignore the posts - again, no harm no foul.
But instead people chose to denigrate and insult the entire thing because it didn't suit their way of thinking, folks, that is called FASCISM and it's simply unacceptable.
While I do believe that Nap is in the majority and that most owners don't care about the Boards and are just here to play the game,
that's where the majority part ends.
Freedom of ideas and sharing them is what makes us all better - shutting down other ways of thought in favor of YOUR way of doing things, simply for the sake of thinking you are either morally, Physically or Intellectually superior is a dangerous course for any association or entity to exist under - expect push back when it is encountered.
Now back to the actual games, I am done with his nonsense, insulting and beating others is not why I'm here, but neither will I allow my freedom of opinion to be shuttered by those who would seek to impart their will upon others.
Oh dear. Here we go again...
