I got rid of all my pictures and stuff cause people had a go, stopped picking players I wanted to send positive vibes to... cause people implied I had groupie mindset.
That didn't stop me posting though....
I'm not a fan of condescending posts, that gets me goat more, and what has made me reluctant....also the negative thread titles and posts bagging players.
I not saying people have to hold hands and love every player, just say it without language like dud, hack, delist.
It's not that hard.
I met plugger66 at the best and fairest last year, he loves his footy, loves his saints. I'm not going to stick up for him cause he is a pain in the rear on here. However I wouldn't go so far as saying he's destroying the site, just put him on your foe list and move on.
It sounds like you should be warbling to your psychologist instead
I liked your pics and predictions. The response from Redeemer is what I'd term a low blow and mark of poor character.
I've recently curbed my involvement with SS, and much prefer BF these days. Folks are right, the standard of convo there is a bit more balanced; this place can be pretty dark, and not in a fashionable teenage goth way, more in a Deliverance way. SS seems to count more open bigots amongst their numbers, I know that I got a bit sick of reading backwards garbage about minorities/our players/our admin here, but on the other hand maybe the exodus includes lots of these bigots who got annoyed with people confronting them on their views, who knows?
I think that the moderation here is a bit weird. If someone says something unacceptable, surely that post should be entirely scrubbed or left alone, but not partially left and then tagged with 'moderated' message.
As far as Plugger66 goes, I agree with a lot of what he says, he often makes me laugh and I reckon he's certainly harmless compared to others, but it's clear that his style and omnipresence is quite annoying for a few posters. But so is Bunk. So is DaveMc. So is WinnersOnly. Stinger. CityWest. Saintspremiers. Cairnsman. The Redeemer. WhiteWinmar. And of course yours truly, with my long winded up-myself rants. and probably a few more that I've missed. All those posters have also posted great stuff, funny stuff, even at times interesting stuff. I think this place would be the poorer for their absence.
The arguing does get annoying, I see less of it on BF. There is an aggression here that BF doesn't have, and Ive been as guilty of that as anyone once or twice. Maybe it's the black background!
By the way if you cared about their POV, this is what the folks at BF have to say about why they don't use SS. You'll notice the majority of reasonable resposes, and consider the style of a hypothetcial reverse appraisal. http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/hows-bf-going.1092920/
Whether you agree or not, it might be worth seeing this place through someone else's eyes. After all, if no one likes the way you dress, it doesn't matter how wrong they are, you won't get a job and you won't get laid!
