What makes you think I am not relaxed. Because I am just one of many that has had enough of dicsussing anything with anyone on here? My decision is based off of a culmination of things and for me Monday night wasn't a big deal in isolation (I commented that Ryder was back in the side and the response was that it's sad that we are relying on an old ruckmen to turn things around. Not once did I or anyone else on this entire forum express that opinion) but for me it was the straw that broke the camel's back. I have had enough of the negativity. I have realised my time is better spent not discussing anything on here anymore because people will just say whatever old bullshit they want irrespective of if it's true or not to keep sticking the boots in. It's boring.Take a break man, relax... you’re a great moderator because you actually post and interact as well. Come back when you’re fresh, or on the gear
I used to come on this forum to unwind & to discuss the club objectively & this is not happening anymore. You guys can discuss how sh*t we are for the rest of the season and while you do that I will refuse to be a part of it. It will get to a point (if we aren't already there) where this forum will just become an echo chamber of the same opinions, no alternative POV allowed, and we will lose good people because of it. Evidently this is already happening.
I have put in an effort to try and steer the overall discussion of this board to more of a balanced one and it has not worked. Having to remove every second post after a loss because people cannot restrain themselves from spewing negative garbage is not why I come on here. I tell people to keep it civil and the response is comparisons to communist China. I don't enforce the rules as strictly as I would be within my right to, and people get upset anyway. So then I enforce the rules, and I receive death threats. I am actually afraid to even hand out warnings anymore because of the response. Try and be friendly, doesn't work. Try and moderate to the rules, doesn't work. Congratulations, you guys won.
I am not reconsidering. I've done all I can. People should probably think about if they are contributing to the negative atmosphere before they post and perhaps reconsider posting because some of us don't come here for that experience and good people are leaving this forum far more frequently than any other time I can remember since I've been here.That would be a big loss to the forum, George. I hope you also re-consider.
Anyway like I said, I don't want to discuss anything with anyone on here anymore, so lets leave it at that.
