He was....after he took offense to the banning of SMP and posted all kinds of garbage, attacking me, etc... and actually said something along the lines of, "I'm trying to get banned"...or something or other.

By "trashing" I mean, posting offensive material, attacking other posters, etc...like the place was a free-for-all.

rebelmusic wrote:The fact remains that this site, while occasionally informative and insightful about hockey, isn't fun any longer. You used to be able to get good hockey info plus a bunch of laughs...this fact seems to be lost on you.

I don't think anything is lost on me.
The problem is, that group's definition of "fun" was: abusing other posters, hijacking threads, and posting inappropriate/offensive material.
That's not what this site, or the series of sites leading up to this site (postnet, stltoday, the real est 1 9 6 7) was all about and that's not what made those site's great. It was a lot of people carrying on interesting discussions, not childish & idiotic toilet humor that seemed to get worse each week.

rebelmusic wrote:The other place, while much higher on the fun spectrum, lacks a lot of the informative hockey talk.

Again...we disagree on the definition of "fun". But to each his own.

rebelmusic wrote:Having both in one place was nice, but good things aren't meant to last I guess.

Like I said before, if we had continued at the pace we were on a few years ago, this place wouldn't exist today. That's a fact.

LGB has made a nice recovery from a time when I was getting ready to shut the whole damn thing down because I didn't want to deal with the asinine BS anymore.

The problem isn't what Goon posts, the problem is the overreaction in the replies to Goon's posts.

Some people are a little too sensitive and don't pick up on the internet sarcasm as well as others.

At least someone gets it. ...

But seriously, if you don't like what someone posts you don't have to respond to it. All it does is compound the problem. Unfortunately, everyone is a tough guy on a message board so they think they have to voice their opinion on everything and everyone.

If people would just chill about 95% of the problems on here wouldn't even be problems in the first place.

So, soooooooooo true. There's nothing wrong with saying "You know what, we fundamentally disagree, but that's cool....."

I think we should rehash the whole SMP, illegal url, bannings, etc. every hour because it never gets old. Or I could post hundreds of nude pictures of myself in the "Ladies Turn" thread.
