    Kind of hard to believe he is now actually a US Senator. :lol:

    Then again, I'd say the same thing about our President. :suicide:

      The board has an excellent ignore feature, if you don't like the negativity of some posters I highly recommend it. At least here banning is a last resort unlike some other sites, and management pays attention unlike that previous home of some posters. I do wonder if some additional marketing or having regular recurring posts would generate some more interest. Perhaps an update on spring practices that we have seen in the past would be a good start.

        Only a small portion of the board regularly frequents the political forum, which is completely different animal. The focus here is on Gator sports, so let's keep it that way and not get off track.

          It could very well be those two in the next election.

          If that person immediately resorts to name calling and attacking your basic intelligence, then yes!

                So many times the "put-downers" made me think seriously of leaving ... but now I gotta stay to get even. :gah:

                  :rolleyes4:

                  Did it ever occur to you that while thumbing down a forum, seeing something and replying, that you dont necessarily see the entire thread before posting?

                  Dont be a drama queen. We already have two queens...actually a Queen and her significant other, also a queen.

                      Sorry, I don't know nearly as much about "thumbing down" as you do.

                      And I'm sorry you don't see the humor in the juxtaposition of those two posts. It was pretty funny to me reading them back to back.

                      Lastly, sorry you didn't realize that I was "smiling while typing" the "respect" joke. I thought that was what all you negators did, so I figured it would have been received as the obvious joke that it was.

                      Snowflake. (this is a joke).

                        My $.02 is that I think fewer people will be annoyed if we all did a better job of staying on topic. I would elaborate more, but I'm on vacation and my pregnant wife is ready to go to dinner.

                            It's been roughly 5 hours and I'm literally shocked that trex and lawdonkey haven't blasted out their disdain for the clear mediocrity in UF's admission standards on display in these pictures. These are clearly 3* ladies with an occasional 4* and we should be reeling in mostly 4*s with a solid core of 5*s!

                              Those are 5 stars. 4 stars become 5 stars when wearing O&B.

                                Unless they're from the Northeast. A 4* from there starts out as the equivalent of a Florida 3*.

                                    This is a great point! Hell, the negaters are the thin skinned ones.
