Venom in the FBT Forum

Postby Mookie4ever » Mon Feb 09, 2004 4:43 pm

There is a lot of testosterone and posturing in the Fantasy Baseball Talk Forum these days isn't there?

Don't get me wrong, I dig conflict - but I also like relaxing with some laid back discussions here in the GT Forum.

I thought this thread was going to be about Venom :,-(

I can't keep up with the Talk Forum anymore. I'm constantly trying to learn names and avatars of the newer members, with no avail.

I think it's good though, think of how lively it will be when the playoffs get here! 8-o ;-D

agreed, the more people in a group, the easier it is to disagree. \

I'm like you mookie, I prefer as casual conversation with an open-mind. Generally that is what makes the cafe great. I guess once you get an influx of new members there is bound to be growing pains. But the ones with an open mind are the ones that stay. At least that has been the trend. IMO.

Yeah, it's getting hairy in there. Add to that the sheer volume of posts and I may split until next off-season.

By the way, I was excited when I read your post title. I thought that the old heavy metal band Venom had joined.

Oh, well.

Topics tend to get heated occasionally. Unfortunately, not everyone can agree to disagree on things sometimes. :-/

Hopefully, things will get better and more focused on what's currently going on in baseball as soon as the season starts. :-)

Ever notice that the mods conveniently excuse themselves from any heated discussions?

Mad, Trev, you guys have to drop the gloves every now and kick some butt.

True. Sometimes it needs to be done. I just don't usually bother to get into an argument on the boards. Pretty pointless. I do attempt to keep as much as possible from becoming heated though. We're growing at such a rate that I'm having difficulty reading everything that comes in and it's not going to get any easier.

If there's ever anything questionable out there, feel free to pm me a link and I'll take a look as quick as possible. ;-D
