Since you asked....A long, long time ago I wrote a post which contained a swear word... A fellow poster chastised me for my language while informing me that he was sitting at his desk with his grandson reading the message board when they came across my post and that he didn't appreciate my language...
That was at Central, many, MANY years ago!
It caused a big debate, most of us concluding folks shouldn't peruse the internet with grandsons on laps.
Too funny Rikster, I totally remember that!
Embarrased, I thought about it and realized that he was right...Why speak any differently to a person on a computer than you would if you were speaking to them face to face?...
Most of us (including Chris) liked to think of Central as a drinking establishment.
Although some considered it more of a nightclub... and some considered it more of a seedy bar.
Either way, not a place for kids!
(assuming the grandson of the poster in question was a kid)
Anyway, I respect your civilized ways Rikster, even if I am... less-civilized.
When I say goodbye to somebody in person, I often say "take care", I don't see any reason to change when giving my opinions on a message board....
Makes sense, although I could see it driving someone like Spidey completely insane after awhile.
I mean, in person, you don't say "take care" to someone like 10 times a day right?
I dunno, I hate to speak for the bully Spidey, but perhaps he likes more flow to a message board?
Perhaps to a hyper dude like Spidey "take care" translates into "take some Ritalin!"
(something I'm sure he gets all the time in real life).
So yeah... if Spidey's grandson is reading in this forum and asks Spidey what "take care" means
.... Spidey may well reply "That sunnuvabitch just told me to FUCK OFF!!!"
Not trying to offend you or Spidey, just trying to be the peacemaker here...
Bullies like you remind me of the time another bully who went by the handle "The Thinker" left this board for that other Canuck board....
We had had our battles and when I PM'd him to let him know I would miss him, he replied that I was the reason he was leaving.....
That's RICDICULOUSLY funny!
PLEASE keep saying "take care" to Spidey!!!
At the end of the day, I like to talk hockey and I especially like to talk hockey with fans I don't agree with...
.... and there ain't nothing wrong with that!
Although I must say, I'll never understand how you could stand posting at McKeens all those years.
Too many Leafers, and too many rules.
But to each their own good buddy.
There are quite a few straight-laced chaps at this site and they seem to abide quite well.
Personally I enjoy the wide range of personality types.
Keep on keeping on good buddy!
