Things I'm Thinking About

Ok, so I wasn't going to get involved in any disputes on this site, but in the aftermath of the bunker05-tbone7 incident and the formation of the "We hate Adam Lee" group, I felt I had to do something.

My fellow FanNationers:  This is a site dedicated to calm, civil sports discussion and debate.  I have never met anyone I have talked to on this site, and many of you are the same.  If a fellow members feels it necessary to personally insult you on a throwdown or blog, please, ignore it.  All you do by responding is incite an incident with unseen repercussions, case in point, the expulsion of bunker05.  While I am not familiar with all the details of the situation, i do know that he was a good member and probably a good person.  But someone felt the need to insult his views, and he felt to retaliate, and know he's gone and we are left to pick up the pieces.  I am not blaming either person, I am blaming both people.

Please, people, there is no need to call someone out on their "stupidity."  Even if you think that, say, Ruby Noon is an ignorant fool, even she is entitled to her opinions.  You can think she's wrong, but there is no need to put it out there for everyone to see. 

Now, the "We hate AdamLee" group.  First, ironically, there are two, exactly TWO, members to this group.  If you feel the need to dislike him for his undefeated record, hate him because he's smarter than you, not because he "cheats."  It's been fairly well proven that he wins his throwdowns on his large knowledge, and not by creating accounts. 

Why would he cheat?  Why would anyone cheat?  Some people treat their throwdown record as their record in life.  I mean some people take their record way too seriously.  My record is 7-4.  Not that good.  It used to be 2-4.  Even worse.  Did I care?  No, because I then turned off the computer and went out a played a game of baseball.  My point is, it is not a big deal how good you do on this site.  Its ok if your record is 1-24 or 24-1.

So I'm sorry to readers for carrying on entirely too long, but something had to be done.  The personal insults and attacks need to stop, and if you do get insulted, its ok.  If you're really mad, turn the computer off.  Walk away.  Watch a baseball game, or a football game, or whatever.  Come back, and you'll be fine.
