Yeah pretty much. Don't get the hate either, I figured people were just having fun with him or otherwise trolling for sport.

for crying out loud. once we get robot baseball umps and robot lawyers, 2p2 will be karak's only refuge and livelihood. until then, there's no need to go easy on him.

Well I definitely get what T was saying. It's tough to walk the line between funny self-deprication and emo sap on here. I try to have fun with that stuff here (hockey regs know what I'm talking about) but it's pretty easy to slip into awful posting taking that approach, so I get it.

I dunno, in his case, the reactions just look a little too slanted to me. Maybe I'm wrong.

wwhoaaaa im grunching every reply because i honestly dont want to see them but that was a hudge overreaction last night (this morning?) obviously. this is why we sleep. back to your regularly scheduled fingerbanging.

and yeah i do take lots of ****, some of it deserved, some of it undeserved, but im always operating under the assumption we're all having fun together. when people all start suddenly jumping out of that scene, start being serious and then avalanche on me it's gunna get to me if you catch me in a sleep deprived state.

like i said before, i was obviously fully aware that some of it was bad, but i suppose i didnt realize to what extent it was bad. that said im not going to keep going on with this. i woulda just ignored all that if it hadn't happened at 8 AM this morning or whatever.

im one of those people who can sometimes become a moody, grumpy **** if he's extremely tired.

I've always thought this was the case. Worth noting that Karak is FAR more good natured about taking **** than most if not everyone else on here.

(which it might be, i can't speak for other people)...
pretty much this. i mean if you're going to post the way he does, it's probably for the best that he's willing to "take a punch" or three around here. but yeah i also thought it was all in good fun, and people didn't actually hate him. then again i don't even read the Yankees thread or anything, so i have no idea what he's like in the actual sports threads that he posts in.

but anyway, what's this about an Epip meltdown?

you'd think if your law school tuition was 3x what bernie williams was paid to hit baseballs in 1995 you could take a punch or 2
