Nah! Not really an uptick in negative posting if you consider there has been a significant uptick in new posters.Lol agreed, its a losing battle, but it does feel like there's been an uptick in piling on unpopular opinions in a counterproductive way this early season. Its probably kept some interesting insights from being posted by new comers or old timers who don't want the onslaught. Also I posted that after a night at the bar, apparently I'm a 5 pint message board vigilante, who knew?
I'm not about to go back and check things but it doesn't seem to be a stretch to say that the ratio of reasonable to unreasonable posters is probably very similar throughout this forum's history with the notable exception of when this forum first started. You can tell by the responses of some of the first guys, that was a close band of people originally. That's the price of success. I'm guessing it was similar to what I see on the football forum. The women's forum is clubby as well but they're not living in a real world.
There is a danger that reasonable posters will be turned off by these "nasty" posts. That's a shame and on them imo. All they have to do is ignore these guys and post rather than running away. I loved the way my neighborhood changed. All white but mixed religions became mixed racially. Love the mixture. Theres beauty in most of us when we look deeper.
