I think Kit was basically just saying he liked a good trainwreck, which is why he mentioned being a fan of RJ/undrafted posters. Guess there is some merit to that, but to do business you eventually have to get the train back on the tracks.
Either that or it's 2p2 EPL thread version of
music was better in the 80s before RADIOHEAD and KE$HA etc
Seems like we just don't allow the type of behaviour that was once tolerated.
It's more like the forum has been populated by a large portion of spineless posters that are afraid of conflict or standing out. They are more inclined to play things safe and craft their responses to he the approval of others. This waters down the forum as posters just blend into each other.
Meanwhile, creativity is quashed.
A good example of this is Tuq. If this forum wasn't so infected, they would realize Tuq is the franchise and would keep him front and center. Tuq is a once-in-a generation talent that has all the tools: not only is he funny; he is smart, has real life experience, and he constantly keeps overlooked posters and opinions in play. He also tore more new buttholes than a proctologist with Parkinson's - or John Holmes during his "I'll do anything for drug money days."
But, the forum has devolved into a group of critics that offer no substantive content and are scared to consider ideas not connected to metrics. Boring. I have no idea how a forum of "+1" posts can be considered interesting or exciting. This place has more eunuchs than the Heavens Gate compound.
Anyhow, you all haven't ruined Tuq, but you are wasting him. Shame on you.
Clark is another example. He was dynamic and bold (like Dr. Pepper 10 claims to be). He stood for something. He put passion in his work - so much so that his glasses would fog up from time to time.
Anyhow, he's been relegated to the corner - he sits there like a potted plant with nothing interesting to offer. You guys did that to him and you should hang your heads in shame. I'd rather take a 100-floor elevator ride with MicroBob than read any of Clark's recent posts. Greatness has been destroyed; there is blood on your hands.
Tuq hasn't let the forum's distaste for homophobia quash his opinion on that matter.
Are you saying you honestly believe that Tuq (in real life) is homophobic?
I have no opinion on you (and this is not personal to you) but I can go back 7 or 8 years off the top of my head and remember things Tuq has posted. I can't even go back to this morning on most of you.
It's like the dudes who all where the same striped shirt to the club. You are all high fiving each other while the real men are picking up women (or men - according to taste and preference).
this is Oski's idea of adding value to the forum, see how awesome things used to be!?

nah ppl don't line the streets for the parade if you don't win (the Canucks never have and never will). you see, typically the parade is held a few days after a team wins a championship, so it wouldn't happen if you lose in the finals ... no one is that stupid, not even a permanently banned soccer p0ster i'd imagine.
