It's either pitiful attempt to misdirect, or your pointing out that only the 11 people who voted yes matter. Either way, it's silly.Strangelove wrote: ↑Wed Aug 01, 2018 2:48 pmhttp://www.canuckscorner.com/forums/vie ... 83#p311583

I am not starting shit here, stirring the pot or getting into a debate. I also will not be commenting further on this just to see who can get the last post in and 'win' an internet debate. That is not my intent. I am expressing an opinion where I am saying that it gets tiring having you guys derail every thread with continual back and forth over nothing causing the rest of us to scroll through pages and pages of drivel to find content. I realize that some of you probably find this as some form of entertainment (heck, perhaps it's some form of ego appeasement to find out who is 'king of the board' or something else as silly) and that's fine, but keep it controlled out of respect for the rest of us posters who come here to chat hockey. I am not saying an offside post is not welcome. In fact, they are usually funny, and lead to a few other funny and entertaining posts. But there is limits, and everyone should respect them. I am speaking to the degeneration of almost every thread that ends in the name calling, bullying, one upping bullshit that has been going on here for years and driving out good members with pages of crap.. and it's mostly between a very few posters.
Yes, you can scroll through the archives to find posts to 'prove' me wrong or hypocritical or whatever point you want to make. You can cut and past links from god knows when and twist thing out of context with clever cut and paste pick-a-part posts to make me out however you want. I really don't care. I am one of the original posters here from before the update that gave everyone the same start date. I attended the meet and greets back in the day where we gathered to watch games and get to know each other. Was here before all you refugees swarmed over from the other site. Spent my money supporting the site. You can't intimidate or bully me with all the kindergarten (or elitism) bullshit
I come here to chat hockey and Canucks.
There are good posters here with insightful, funny, and different opinions, but the continuous intentional trainwrecking of threads with personal attacks, insults, and the same old shit being regurgitated is driving them away.
You are all better than that. You have good opinions, views on players and coaches, rookies and prospects,inside info, and bring other good things to this site.
I am just asking you guys to either contain the bullshit, or cut it down a bit out of respect for the others here.
If you or anyone else feels a burning, overwhelming, insatiable need to comment on this or wish to continue this conversation, feel free to PM me.
