Now only one more.
No...I am thinking of sacrificing myself for the needs of the many.
According to my suggestion, one more dislike would not create a ban, it would merely limit my postings to 2 per day for the next 3 days. Some of you fear the possibility of putting some teeth into your peers' thumbs-down votes. Very understandable.
Shutup, youve been banned for three days. With all due respect and I do mean all due respect, you realize the purpose of a message board is to CREATE clicks, right?
This thread has reminded me that the time spent here can never be recovered.
Ok Ox, I have some feedback. You know I've been here forever and rarely post. Just a few things. The idea that people with negative opinions scare posters away is bizarre and foreign to me. I have no problem with people feeling one way or the other. I was a negator with Muschamp and I'm a pumper with Mac. I will gladly defend my position if needed and respect those who disagree. One thing that someone mentioned was the personal attacks. Back when I first joined GSMB, I made one of my first posts ever, literally like my 3rd post. I was really new to message boards and I think like most people who find a message board, they want to participate. It was Sas who insulted me and made me feel like absolute garbage for having an opinion. That was a major turn off, and tbh, I'm still salty. I still censor myself because of that. I feel like that's what most people mean when they mention the negativity. For the record I have never blocked anyone and never will. One thing that i love about this board, is that literally it is like a fraternity. I'm on the outside but you guys are ALWAYS here. To outsiders it takes time to break in and get past the hazing. I've enjoyed watching newer members come in and find their place.
Ox, why did you take so many minutes for just second thoughts?
My first post ever drew attacks like you wouldn't believe. The Donkey wanted me kicked out, Dirty South twisted everything I said and T-Rex called me every name you can think of. It was an interesting experience as I did not know any of the personalities. I got a lot of likes out of that thread too though (mostly Nav if I remember correctly). I was hooked. I personally choose not to resort to name calling or personal attacks. Nothing wrong with it if it is among friends and done in jest. In my opinion those who do it in anger are simply insecure. It's a sign of a lack of social skills. They have become used to gaining control through bullying others into submission. The best strategy is to ignore them, don't stoop to their level and refuse to be intimidated.
Just south of Archer about ten miles
This board has a good group and pretty diverse views on all things Gators. Sure, you're going to get some push back and criticism on things here....its a chat room. But for the most part this board BY FAR is better than any out there. I am glad that the GSMB led to the conception of GC. It is way better and managed properly, better than any other.
Or.... personally ask the owner to be banned. But I guess that's kinda the same thing.
There are times when L-boy just can't help himself.
Checking in late as usual. My 2 cents? People need to grow a pair and chill the eff out. Love this board and all of the characters. Censoring would drive me away, not the lack of it. I need a place that I can vent and be my old grumpy self when needed and a place to celebrate when needed. We have it here with GC.
Very well stated Zambo. I'd give your post more likes if possible.
Yeah, I'm the pumper mod.
This is not the best strategy. There is a sarcasric beast in there just waiting to roar.
or the fact they sit behind a screen, insulated from the real world, and can say whatever the fck they want to whomever they want. Like you, I try not to call people names cause in my world that is one of the worst things that can happen in an elementary class. Sometimes I think Im reading the words of 8-11 year olds in here. But like most say, it is fun and those words carry no weight and speak volumes about the authors than than the targets................good post quadruple deuce............
You are. Rex is 12.
What's this talk about sane places - they're no sane places here... just flakes ... & snow.
I don't post a lot, more of a drive by poster. The dynamics between the positive and negative posters is actually pretty amusing. But what stinks is when every single thread eventually just becomes one about how bad Mac, the team, players, strength coach, the AD, the former AD are . Take the Spring practice thread. There's post after post assuming because nothing has been talked about for days it must mean we suck. Until someone thankfully pointed out it's because there haven't been any practices . And now that thread has turned into the same as the rest. All about how bad Mac is.
