    this has gotten pathetic...

    I mean seriously... I leave this afternoon to go shoot a little scotch doubles tourney. I get back some odd 13 hours later and log on as usual.

    I see 89 new posts. Out of 89 new posts there is but one actual worthwhile post containing some sort of information (thank you Q for the video).

    The rest is dribble. Seriously, wasting my time on 88 other useless non informative posts.

    Y'all can bash Gayle as much as you want, but at least she tries and attempts to put something useful in her posts... granted it is oft repeated in several threads... but at least there is content there. Whether we may agree or not, it's more than to two letter abbreviation minus the one letter... or more than the typical one liner.

    And then we have Wolfie, who chimes in from time to time but at the very least he throws in some nice humor and originality in his posts.

    Hondo... well Lord love him but he's just too busy trying to defend himself, so I can't fault him there.

    Sofla is a breath of fresh air from the left, who obviously goes through great effort to not only post topics but also reply to every single little thing that gets responded to him as well. I've grown to respect his intellect as well as be baffled at his patience.

    Otherwise... wow... I gotta say this site has become a waste of time. To be brutally honest, I think out leftist brethren as a whole has done the most to post useful information. Steve does OK when he's not following Gayle. Same for Ed who is around few and far between these days. I won't leave myself out, as I'm not on here often... but in my few appearances it has been chatting with Gayle (generally in useful debate at least).

    Otherwise, Dub your climb to the top of the posting list may be admirable... but you know you did it cheaply. You CAN post some great info and when you apply yourself you go toe to toe in some good debates.... but replying to yourself repeatedly to get there was beneath you. Sorry, but I watched it... you woulda got there in a few months time anyway just doing what you were doing.

    I forget which one of "us" keeps saying "PO..." but really? Is that doing anyone any good?

    Anyway, I'm just venting. But I miss the days when CC (RIP) and 9BG and everyone else was on here. Only a few of us around now were here to remember those good ol' days. But yes, there was a time when I'd log on and see 89 new posts, and damn near all 89 were worth reading.

    Unfortunately that is not our board any longer. So props to Gayle, Q, Sofla, and sometimes LWW (when he posts a good topic). I know I could do more myself... but in all honesty our left-leaning people have been the most informative and useful posters on this board anymore. Even when I disagree with them, at least there is something there to disagree with. Which is (by and large) more than I can say for us righties.

    Tap, Tap, Tap, and thanks, Sack.

    I think it's worth mentioning as well, that you and I have had many debates, over the years, each of us firmly committed to our respective POV, and yet, we have remained very good friends, for many years, and, in fact, I'd say much more, than just good friends.

    It's a shame that we have some on here who think that harrassing, insuting and stalking another member, equals adult debate, and the worst offenders are the very members who suggest they are above it all.

    This forum has turned into Steve, Ugo, Sev., and LWW's trash can.

    When forum members, like Sev, can get away with writing this kind of filth, there is no hope for a decent forum, or a moderator who does his job.

    The hateful old wench should try got get laid once and a while to release some of that pent up tension. But then who would want to? Its probably like tossing a hot dog down a hallway.

    As for slithering and venom there are several reptiles around here and it isnt me.
    If you want to run your jib thats fine. However it would be nice if you would stop being Gayles personal colonoscope. No matter how much she enjoys having you jammed up there you should show a little personal dignity and stay on the sidelines and let the little misanthrope speak for herself. Not that we would read anything but Bush Bush Bush. Which between you and me seems to indicate that she has an overly overt affection either for herself or other woman. Not that is a bad thing. However if thats the case she should dump her old man and start clam digging.
    The aged mentally addled old wind bag needs to seek professional help and you by enabling her are not helping. If she has something coherent to say I am more than willing to listen. However the incessant tripe that she insists on printing while at the same time not engaging in any meaningful discussion is at its base deserving of derision.

    So basically bite me Hondo.

    then it is here in plentiful quantity.

    That being said, I will confess that my posts have dropped of in quality because even a thread about baseball or photography of astronomy or shooting sports or many other benign issues becomes trolled by the cabal.

    I have said since I came here that there will be peace when they want peace. They have no desire for peace and I have no desire to bow my head to thugs who hide behind the anonymity of the keyboard threatening others with violence, lawsuits, false law enforcement reports, theft of intellectual property and cyber attacks.

    If you honestly can't understand that, then I have lost a tremendous amount of respect for you.

    I think you admire me Gayle.



    There isn't anything wrong with America that liberal ideology, properly applied by government experts, can't make worse.

    Re: this has gotten pathetic...

    I think your a little off Sack.

    I was posting tons of non political threads. Mostly scientific in nature with humorous ones as well. They all get passed over.
    That is not to say they do not get read. I generally watch the view count and more members than generally post in NPR read them. However there generally is little to no commentary.

    However when I post a political thread that's when the action begins. however it is difficult to have a discussion with individuals that deliberately couch their threads in attack mode all the time.
    I find it appalling that there are individuals that believe that an entire sector of the US population have nothing on their minds but evil intent. You can praise Gayles posts if you like. However she comes across as bigoted and narrow minded where it concerns her fellow citizens and what is actually good for our country.
    If the country was actually as she describes one side would have slaughtered the other long a go.

    We have severe problems in this country which are all rooted in our government following the path of good intentions rather than performing its obligations to do what is good for the people and country first. Part of the onus of that lays with the voters who sometimes have there hands out for their personal benefit rather than considering their community or nation as a whole.

    actually Sev, my bad because you start and contribute to a few good threads as well. I shouldn't have left you off the list. You aren't 100% innocent (and again I say neither am I), but you do provide some value and insight when you want to. Apologies for not mentioning you.

    what I don't get is why continue the trend? I've told Hondo before to not sink to a certain level. Would be hypocritical for me to not tell you the same just because we're both righties and love baseball. If that's how you see it, be the peace bringer rather than waiting to accept the olive branch. I know at times you have tried, but really dude you are far too intelligent for some of the stuff you wind up posting. Seems a waste of your time and talents on many things. Again, you do post some good threads too... I'm not at all saying every bit is dreck, but some of it is.

    I won't comment any further than I have other than to say yes we have had our debates. We have even gotten VERY heated from time to time... but yes we have remained as extremely close friends despite our differences and our occasional out of line posts to each other... because overall we have kept our discourse civil. Everybody could do that if they wanted. I won't go as far to say that we've never upset one another, but in the end we always come back around. And that's what this board used to be that I miss...

    I miss it as well.

    I will make a statement, here and now, directly.

    I do add to the negativity, when I see a quote of something they write, which is absurd, or mean, or in the case of several poster's, totally irrelevant to the subject of the thread, and personally insulting as well...

    I have requested that since they hate me so much, why not stop reading my posts, for the sake of others here, and to go at least half way, toward a more pleasant forum, for all of us, and done so, many times, asked they join me in a mutual total ignore.

    Now, in the future, I am not going to write anything at all about them, on those occasions, when one of my friends here, highlights their nastiness, and their failure to address the subject, at hand, and instead, reduce a thread to nothing more than juvenile attacks. I will not refer to any of them, in any way, at all, going forward.

    I honestly do not read their stuff...but I won't even refer to it, or to them, going forward., regardless of how filthy they get, and, you have to admit, Sack, given the two statements I quoted, it is filth.

    But just watch, it won't make a bit of difference in their own stalking and insulting M.O. ...because their ONLY intent, is to be rude, and vicious, and to continue with the personal insults, and nastiness.

    Steve, Sev, Ugota, LWW, Johnny D., stalk every single post I write, because they cannot abide opposing opinions, and particularly not from a proud Liberal Woman, who supports women's rights, Gay rights, helping our poor and hungry, Gun Controls of some sort, and the Democratic Party!



    As you know, I don't respond to their irrational, non stop attacks. I would far prefer to see a return to the days when we could get a bit heated, but kept things to some standard of give and take, and fairness.

    When one member, fills the board with thousands of one-liner, condescending, insulting, posts, in just a few months, I find it hard to understand how you could suggest any rational intelligence, on his part, but we all have a right to our opinions.

    When someone posts over fifteen thousand posts, since November 10th, of 2007, many of them one liner insults to others, and the forum moderator does nothing about it, something isn't right around here.

    You know, as well as I, that he is spamming this forum....purposefully, and degrading it with irrational, non stop, insulting posts.

    Does anyone really care which member's name is on top of the list??? I know I don't.

    It doesn't get much more juvenile, and ridiculous, than that, IMO.

    Oh, and BTW, IMO, there is NO ACCEPTABLE CONTEXT for any man to write....

    "When a woman spreads her legs, she loses her defense."

    And Sev's quoted post, above, opure filth, whether you want to admit it, or not, but it shows me who he is.

    I want NOTHING at all to do with any of them, and have asked them to stay away from my posts, as I do theirs. That's about all that I can do, other then be sure not to make any reference, at all, to their existance, very easy to do..so consider it my contribution, to more peace on this forum....
