Honestly, I would have loved Linden to have made the jump and been a fixture in our outfield for many years.

Could you quote those "zingers" please? All I remember is a new poster who insulted no one, expressed his/her opinion in a polite manner, and yet was pilloried.

Spend a couple minutes and find them yourself, why make 9$ do the work if you don't believe him?

There were no "zingers" from smac - I'm pretty sure that I saw all of her 12 or so posts - so there *aren't* any zingers that can be found, or quoted. I don't recall any posts from smac that were insulting or used profanity, or were even rude (let alone any that told someone to "get the !@#$ outta here").

Re: Giants @ Dbacks Gameday thread


Jeeesh, Marco. Get over it.
I was referring to her saying something smarmy and sarcastic to the effect of:
"I'm sure he really cares what you think."
(paraphrased)

and I replied to that with my own opinion.

It's no big deal and would be a dead issue if you would drop it--

And WHY are you and Brute feeling SO compelled to hold her hand anyway?

To me she sounds like a big girl that can handle herself.

(And no, that was not a double entendre pun/insult on either account-- After all, how would I know what she looks like-- or what she does in the privacy of her own home?)

I believe that I made exactly ONE post on "the issue" since it appeared several days ago, so I don't think a reasonable person would agree that I've been the guy keeping "the issue" alive. (Well, then I replied to a post directed at me, answering a question.) And now three, since you asked me a direct question or two yourself.

My initial post was in reply to a post barely an hour old directly bringing up "the issue". So I guess I "kept it alive" for an hour more. I was simply pointing out that "the zingers" were pretty one sided.

Oh, I'd like to point out that the purpose of my initial post wasn't to make fun of you - I hope that wasn't the impression you (or others) got. I was simply pointing out my belief that she didn't throw out "a few zingers" as had (just) been stated in a post. That's all. But then I guess I was thinking that "zingers" would have to be of the same order of rudeness and crudeness to be counted (and not simply "I don't think he cares what you think"). And I hope nobody thinks I am implying that there was just one person insulting a new poster - because there wasn't.

I guess what bothered me, what's "the big deal" in my mind (since you asked) was that a new poster showed up, was polite, and within an hour or two or three is ridiculed, insulted and told to "get the !@#$ outta here". (I am NOT implying that you posted that - you didn't .)

I just think it's a shame if the board devolves into one a lot like "the other board", where personal insults and obscenities are tossed about as a matter of course. And even worse, that such would be the "greeting" to a new poster - by several people - in the matter of a couple of hours. I'm not holding "smac's" hand per se - I'm pointing out what I see as a worsening trend on what HAD been a pretty darn good board.

Maybe Merkin has an opinion?

(I'll "drop it" now, unless people post follow-on posts, especially one directed to me. Then I reserve the right to reply.)

"In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
