Honestly, I'm just as embarrassed at how many of the people from our site have been acting at PSR. I didn't agree with everything you said, nor the way you handled the disagreements over there. Same goes for Craig and many of the others; and I would expect that many feel the same way about me. I don't think we are any better than they are. It's just that the way things are done there, it brings out an uglier side of many of us. To me it's the same as if you start working at a job where people swear more. You will likely start to swear more yourself, because you've been exposed to that and it starts to become natural for you. At PSR, they treat everyone like shit; each other and new people. After a while, the instinct isn't to talk things out rationally, it's to call them a fucking moron (or retard, though I don't like to use that word at all) and shit all over anything they have to say because that's just how people have done things there for a while.
I still read a bit on that site because there is a lot of interesting discussions if you can block all the other 80% that's just pettiness and garbage, I just refuse to comment on anything for now, because it's pointless. I read Craig's meltdown where he went around demanding an apology for a guy making a personal attack on him. That was pathetic to read, and I don't blame them for mocking the way Craig was acting. On that site, calling people a little bitch is the norm... demanding apologies and respect has no place there.
On your last sentence, FTR, I was not bothered much by the little bitch and fucktard name-calling. I was active in a thread by Richie, who was giving some guy all kinds of shit for his fucked up advice on McCoy for a keeper in his dynasty's league. It was funny. And the bad advice guy thought so too. Really, I get it. No apologies or respect were expected, it was nothing personal. What annoys me in terms of sophomoric behavior is incessant sexual & toilet puns and innuendo, and gratuitous cuss words when they add nothing. But never ever to the point I'd say this is not for me. It was just an annoyance on top of the football thing. Yes, there was plenty of interesting discussion. I started a new job right after we moved there, so have little free time. You know my forays into the topics you most got into are far and few between. My arguments were almost exclusively with Patsk1d and Morkim, both Peyton and Broncos haters. And Mork is in 2 leagues I run, and a 3rd I co-LM w/njc71 (neil). lol
2) I find some topics interesting, even if the majority are garbage.
3) I do play FF, just not in leagues with anyone here (except jindred).
