I love those guys.
Because there are very few people that participate in the general forum. It's just not active enough and I wanted to get some input from others. The debate forum was really the only forum this could be discussed in.

General Forum is made for trolls. Took me a bit to catch on and I took it personally, but I get it now and they can be fun, even when I'm a target. I'd like posters to keep the permanent threads (movies, double drib, mars...) to be generally off the hostility list.

Debate Forum: I kind of like to have a safe haven. A little snark is one thing but to try and intentionally disrupt the conversations and idea exchange, get hostile... I wish we'd police ourselves more.

THe other forums? Really no place for it, at all in the high school forums. Gets too personal when the conversations are generally about kids or people working hard to help kids make a life (coaches), especially bothersome when coming from someone outside the area. People who are familiar with each other, taking a rival poke but not disrupting the thread day after day is one thing. Posters from one area of Ohio disrupting threads from another.... No place for deriding others, do it on the team forums.

College and pro forums, I'm a bit more accepting of rival trolling. Fun reading the Cinci-Xavier posters go at each other.

No. This started about a week ago. Started throwing around some ideas about some of the negative issues on here with a few people. That thread was just another reminder of how some posters on here really seem intent on driving people away.

I mean really, I can't ask if an owner of an NBA team should be talking about tanking their season?

Why would anyone want to start a thread with trolls like you guys ready to pounce on them instead of discussing the topic?

Hoser is definitely a troll. All you have to do is mention MAC and he comes a trolling....


In all seriousness though Eastside Purple is a huge drag for the baseball forum. Any post made there gets a "you're an idiot" comment from him. He single handedly keeps the Reds thread dead.

Gotcha, I thought it might have been the Mavs thread since you specifically mentioned last few posts and my last few posts were in the Mavs thread.

I don't see anywhere in that thread that said you couldn't ask if an owner of an NBA team should be talking about tanking their season. I was simply surprised at the topic once I opened the thread. Given the news that has come out of Dallas this week, one seems like a bigger deal than the other. When I first saw "Mavs" in the title I was expecting the bigger of the two deals. I agreed with another posted who also noticed that.

You must have missed it, I discussed the topic.

I'd say most of them know how to be funny. And as I said, it's a learning experience how to be on the tough end of the joke. I know when I have fired back, I've gotten actually compliments.

There's a few that just don't get it or have day when they don't let up, who doesn't. But those who do it mean or everyday as a rule? I think you move them on. Some retry with new id's and do better. It's fun trying to figure out who they were. I suck at that.

I've thought about trying an alt id but I'd get caught in about two seconds. More fun just being accused of it anyhow. I've seen "bad boards." This isn't it. Be mindful to ask people not to try and run people off. I think most would comply. The occasional newbe needs a harsher treatment to know that's not what we do here, regardless different politics or social beliefs.

You're not as fun as a target now that you figured it out.

Uh, hoser's dumb character has entertainment value sometimes.

No one has greater commitment to being a tool than e_p. An obviously disturbed individual.

Sometimes it seems that the major difference between the General Board and the Debate Forum is that e_p doesn't frequent the DF.

You don't seem to get killed by the ban hammer nearly as often since you quit naming yourself after GTA characters. It's almost like they were made to die.

I enjoy reading the general forum for this reason. There are trolls across the Internet that do far worse than what folks do here. The general forum is fun.

But hey, it's your site.

Totally agree. This place is pretty damn tame comparatively.
