the should just redirect to this but until then i guess i'm gonna have to report all kinds of posts and triple fist pump when i connect with a successful narcing

Honestly I'd prefer it be disallowed to go into opposing team threads because it never ends well but that's been suggested in the past and too many people were against it. Without question the Twins and Tigers discussion would suck a lot less.

And nobody cares who is more at fault.

So basically I need to trick you into reading the tigaz thread or to trick shane into circumventing the profanity filter. LOL those options are the suck.

I guess it's time to just stop feeding the troll altogether instead of ruthlessly mocking it.

OK then, what do you suggest? Feel free to offer a suggestion that doesn't involve reading thousands of posts. There may well be one but it's much more likely you'd rather complain.

No but seriously please offer ideas as to how to fix this going forward. I personally am a fan of no Tigers fans posting in Twins fans thread and vice versa ever again or ban. Problem solved.

Most of the Twins fans are cool about it but a few aren't familiar with the ways of the GREAAR and turn the playful banter into serious biz.

I think the main points I've discussed in that thread are:

1. The Twins lefties actually hit lefty pitchers pretty well.

That was my first foray into that thread, which was met with namecalling by ikes and GREEAR (I remember idiot many times, and GREEAR telling me to kill myself at least three times).

2. That while Cabrera was having a great season, even better than Pujols, Morneau was having a better statistical season. And when asked about it, I agreed that Cabrera is better than Morneau for the future (but maybe not by a huge amount, which evidentally is saying something terrible about the Tigers).

3. I expressed surprise that a particular play was called a hit rather than an error, and I brought it up to talk about it.

I'm not sure exactly what is so horrible that I said about the Tigers...

----------------

I should say that's where things started--I could have gotten a bit upset at the nth time that ikes and/or GREEAR hurled a personal insult my way.

Braves fans somehow post in the Mets thread and don't bother me at all. I feel like its pretty simple and should be able to be replicated by every other posted on 2+2.

I would love for the troll GREEAR to stay out of the Twins thread. I believe many Twins fans have told GREEAR to f off and gtfo.

GREEAR's a Tigers fan. Enough said?

----------------
Edit: and maybe sarcasticrat's right--not that I take GREEAR seriously or anything, I just know he's going to go into the Twins thread and post something after a loss, or if the Tigers get close to the Twins in the standings, or what have you.

BTW, I think I've reported GREEAR for stuff he's said in the DET thread twice. Once (well, it was actually two of the three posts) for telling me to kill myself, and second for using a homophobic slur directed towards me. Both things I think are vastly over any line of appropriateness (and at least on the first issue, the mod who replied to me definitely agreed...).

With all the namecalling you and GREEAR have done in that thread directed towards sam and me, if my goal was to report people for breaking 'minor' forum rules instead of trying to have a discussion, there'd probably be 100+ reportable posts.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

OK, I looked through the DET thread to see how things started. Relevant threads reproduced below. tl;dr I know, but cliffs:

someone mentioned Willis might not be bad against the twins because he's a lefty, and there were a lot of lefty bats the twins played in the prior game. Some back and forth with sam and ikes mostly. I say in my first post that I don't think it's trolling to point out the twins lefties are good against lefty pitching, and that just saying Willis may do well because the twins have a lot of lefties is shortsighted.

More back and forth with sam and ikes, and I post again, pointing out the lineup he's talking about isn't the one that the twins would play against lefties. I am sarcastic with a second point, but the third is saying that I hope Willis faces the Twins and that it seems ikes is agreeing with what sam is saying. Ikes then calls me a ******, tells me I can't read and am a troll. I do get a bit irked and post one sarcastic reply. I post again saying not to get so upset that I didn't remember his wording from earlier (I was probably remembering his implication, not his words). ikes then tells me to get on my knees and service LaVar Burton. (Last thing is ironically funny since he said something like twins fans suck lots of dick, then backed off by saying 'there are female twins fans, so that comment wasn't homophobic).

---Some back and forth between ikes and Minnesotasam about lefties in the twins lineup and Willis. If I remember right, most of the DET fans were pretty fed up with Willis' poor performances, and hoping that because the twins had a lot of lefties, he might not be his usual crappy self (can I say that since he's subsequently gotten released by DET *and* ARI?) ---

WildBobAA: The Twikies come to the D and the trolls come to the thread. It's like clockwork
Me (Post #13493) (my first post in the DET thread): Just like when the season starts GREER comes to troll everywhere?
And I don't think pointing out the Twins aren't that susceptible to lefties is really trolling. Mauer and Morneau are good, and Thome sits for a right handed bat, so just looking at lefty versus lefty matchups is a little shortsighted.
WildBobAA: I never said GREEAR wasn't the #1 SE troll.

more back and forth between sam and ikes mainly...I enter again a bit after this:

minnesotasam: Or you were completely talking out of your ass and now you're backpedalling, one of the two. Regardless, somehow I'm being trolled in the Tigers team thread, that's incredible, so I'll leave you guys to it. Sorry for wanting to actually talk baseball tactfully, I'll just cuddle up in the 5 division titles we've won in the last 8 years. You guys won a division title when again?

ikes (to minnesotasam): Seriously you are a ****ing ******. 'Ooooh, I'll look at M, M and Spans splits against lefties this year and jack off until I hit myself in the face.' GMAFB, a good lefty would do very well against the lineup that was put in tonight, and there's a chance that Willis won't be awful against you Thurs. That however, is admittedly a low standard.

You sir, still have no ****ing idea what you are blabbering about.

Me: First, that's not the lineup that a lefty starter would be facing.
Second, yeah, a good pitcher will pitch well. Wow...amazing insight... (note: ok, a little sarcastic...)
If you're serious Willis is pitching Thursday (I haven't looked at the probables), I can't wait. And since this discussion started with someone saying they thought Willis would do well against the Twins, well, 'a chance that Willis won't be awful' sounds a lot like you're disagreeing with the argument, and agreeing with sam.

ikes: HEY LOOK IT'S ANOTHER ******!!!!
This is the post that started all this btw:
Quote: Originally Posted by ikestoys

Learn how to ****ing read before you troll.
Me: Yes, you don't have to identify yourself as such, however. (note: not my best wit.)

Anyway, I agree, there's a small possibility Willis won't be out of the game before the fifth inning after having given up 4+ runs. (note: this is pretty close to the definition of a quality start...so I'm just putting numbers to 'not being terrible')
Me: Don't get your panties in a bunch. Or get all upset that someone didn't remember the exact wording of something they read several hours ago. Oh, the horrors! The world is going to end...Or not.

Ikes (13518): I mean shane, my first post on this subject was literally 'there's a chance willis won't be awful' FFS. Seriously, get on your knees and service LeVar Burton before you post in this thread agian, kthks.

BTW, sorry for the long post--but I felt a little attacked by things ikes said about me in this thread. I wanted to show that the interactions were shaped quite a bit because of the reply a few relatively innocuous posts of mine were replied to. Oh, and if it wasn't obvious, when I put (note: ... ), that was not in the original post.

That is, if he had said "Well, what I actually said was ..." instead of "******", "learn to **** read before you troll" things would have been significantly different.
