I find it fascinating that I am about halfway through writing up player profiles on the upcoming team and there is hardly a mention about any of these posts that have everything to do with GW basketball. And yet whenever the fighting breaks out, there are all too many of you who are willing to jump in. Personally, that's fine with me. But at the same time, let's stop making this out to be about MV and LFO dragging everyone into the mud with them. If you deem threads like this one to be a bad thing, then all contributors are guilty. Again, I don't have a problem with threads like this as they do bring out divergent points of view. But if you have a problem with it, then you really should walk away and stop contributing to the melee.
If I am guilty of hijacking this thread (and I could care less whether I am or not), it was to prove a point. Diageo has made it a point to harass LFO threatening to expose his real identity on this board. Very, very uncool. Then, Herve issues a post that was very much along the lines of what LFO did only using less harsh language. Well, if Diageo had a problem with LFO's post, he should have had one with Herve's as well. Herve, to his credit, indicated that he is not immune from criticism. Diageo tries to teach me a lesson by differentiating between professional criticism and personal criticism. Herve makes a make-up joke at BB's expense. (a funnly line incidentally). Yet once again, not a word of criticism out of Diageo towards Herve. Diageo, was the make-up joke a professional criticism or a personal one? I thought so.
Diageo continues to lose it in this thread by indicating that "somebody is paying" for my time spent on this site. Wow, he probably knows my identity too. Diageo, this is an anonymous message board. You have no idea where I work, if I work, who my boss is or if I am the boss. The frequency of my visits to this site are not about to be dictated by you and I could care less about your judgments on the subject. On another note, I believe you have exaggerated the posters I have feuded with. First of all, it's unfair to include you, Blue Seats and Seneca individually, if you know what I mean. This serves to pad your numbers. Beyond that, I've had differences of opinions in the past with Free Quebec, Poog, and Levinator but to refer to these as feuds is something I would argue. (Yes, I'm happy to argue against who I've argued against) I'll give you Bobo, Ziik, and Danj. Last point for Diageo, I don't believe that LFO is guilty of making a libelous post or posts, simply a strongly worded one(s). Since you have accused me of doing the same, I would challenge you to find a single instance where I am guilty of this accusation. Like LFO, you may not like what I say or how I say it, but I have never once crossed the line you are insinuating.
Onto a few others: Danj, I can't possibly rehash this again for you. How can you not see differences between naming replacements for a man who hasn't been fired yet and saying "good riddance" to individuals who underperformed? You know what KH's positive accomplishments were. More respect was warranted to KH based on these accomplishments. Those who kicked him when he was down sounded like a whiny, ungrateful fan base. You and others may see it otherwise but that's how it sounded to me. Conversely, what were JK's accomplishments? Or DP's? Or BB's?
Ziik, only in your world would you take my saying that Diageo is all too willing to blast LFO and I but becomes a coward when Herve posts something similar to mean (with Diageo failing to respond similarly) that I am comparing myself to Herve. And while I'm sure your statement that LFO has a major drinking problem was conceived as humor in that warped brain of yours, the reality is that there's really nothing funny about directing that statement towards anyone. I was about to write that you should know better but given your track record for writing some very unintelligent things here, I guess that would be presumptuous.
