I just got an email from my brother on Rhodes. He thinks Rhodes wants a chance to start, but without the same system he likely won't do any better than Edge did in Arizona. He thinks it will 'get ugly' for Rhodes, and one ring and the cash are going to have to be worth it. A guy might work well in one system but not fit into another.

that's the point... you say some outrageous things from time to time, and when 9 out of 10 people call you on the outrageous things, you claim that you're being picked on. it's your MO.

i've said stupid, outrageous things, too. people then call me on it. i don't think i'm being picked on. when 9 of 10 people tell me "hey, that's pretty stupid," i think to myself "hey, maybe that was pretty stupid."

If you stated a team was having a good or bad season, we'd go back and forth and debate what you said in a civilized manner. Time and again, when we try to do that with U2Kitten, we get assailed for picking on her, when we're not. Well you know what? I'm tired of it - I've had enough. And I'm sorry if you think I'm out of bounds here or something, but quite frankly, as you said, you haven't been here as much lately, so perhaps you haven't dealt with it as often.
I don't really care whether you and U2Kitten get along, I'm just saying that telling someone to "do us all a favor and leave" is a bit extreme. And by the way, you don't speak for me.

When you think about it, you really can't do anything to actually keep her from the thread, so she can keep posting if she likes. Really the only thing you've accomplished here is to get yourself mad. Life's too short to get so angry about someone you never have and probably never will meet, IMO.

You're missing the point, Dave. It has nothing to do with us getting along - as you've stated, I have no idea who she is and most likely never will. When she states her opinions, that's one thing, but when she uses erroneous facts to support her opinions, that's when it becomes an issue. Because at that point, someone will explain to her that she is factually wrong, and when that happens, she goes off. It's not just here in this thread - it's all over the place.

And I never said I spoke for you - that's just a figure of speech and you know it.

My thoughts really have simply mirrored what several mods have been saying, and nothing more. I'm basically just echoing their thoughts.

Riveting, isn't it?

I'll say this, the threads get more entertaining when this stuff goes on.

But their thoughts are biased, misinformed, and wrong. I think they don't even bother to read my posts, they just listen to a bunch of tattletales (same ones every time) or go oh there she goes again every time I'm in a thread and shit happens. I have seen several threads shut down that had nothing to do with me, but nobody ever singles out and names the one person they think 'ruined' the thread like they do to me. I never understood why everyone wasn't given the same benefit of the doubt here, but they don't. I even think Jick had valid points and had a right to express them like anyone else. Other people have emailed me and told me they had problems too. You know, I am a mod on 2 other boards, and I am very fair with people even if I don't like them or their views. No one can fight, or be 'disruptive' alone!

U2Kitten has put up with a lot of shit from people in this thread
Sorry but she brings it on herself.

Quote:
Why shouldn't she feel entitled to share her opinion?
Because every time she does she gets into some kind of argument or altercation.

Quote:
This really isn't my business since I haven't posted in this thread much since the season ended
Bingo.



So once again, here she is getting into arguments and disrupting this thread not to mention INSULTING the mods. The numerous warnings and chances have done absolutely no good. It's time to go.

Sorry, but I think you're wrong. Almost every post that gets closed, it seems that there's always one reoccuring theme, and that's you getting into arugments with everyone.

It's very OK to disagree with someone, or to be passionate about something, but you throw out your opinions and expect no one to respond, or you expect everyone to agree. And what you say has been very outrageous at times. And you're free to say things like that, but you get SO defensive when someone disagrees or points out that maybe your facts are not correct.

I wouldn't recommend you just leave, but I think you need to think about taking a break. You seem to get upset so much in here and that can't be healthy, and even if you do enjoy the drama, that's still not healthy.

I don't know what else to tell you. You've been warned so many times.

It doesnt help, she's taken breaks before.

Back on topic, her access to this forum has been removed.
