I would have tried to get on the original list if I knew it was that easy.

I understand perfectly.

Professor Schmuckeye is just that damned clueless.

And then half of our country stands around scratching their heads wondering what happened to our educational system.

I've got some idea.

No, no he never used the word corrupt (Freudian slip on your part?). You really are just a mental weakling, aren't you?
Watch it playing with the big boys; when you get old enough to grow testicles, those shots are going to hurt a lot more and a lot longer.

You are either the most patient man in the world, or you are feeling extremely charitable today.

And The Professor gets exposed, yet again.

There are some very good posters at SLSF. Not very many, in large part to the restrictions there on vigorous discussion, but good ones nonetheless.



I wasn't banned. Gooch used a "deity related profanity" in one of his posts, a clear violation of the forum terms and conditions (which I think he helped to write). I used the post reporting feature to report the violation to the moderators/administrators. I was issued an "infraction" for "misuse of the post reporting feature" and docked 10 points off my "reputation" for having the gall to call out an administrator. Eventually, that infraction was rescinded and the 10 points restored.
Ok, I was looking at Generic's posts to see if I should start a birthday thread on him.

I ran across this.

I never saw it last time.

I have to say that the imbeciles at SLSF are the biggest bunch of sissies I've encountered in cyberspace.

And, I've seen plenty.

I mean... Harry "misusing the post-reporting feature"

George Orwell would be proud.

And, those morons should be ashamed.

Yet, somehow, I'm sure it's my fault.

"jimmcg" is one of the moderators at SLSF and a very good friend. While he strongly favors "civilized" discussions, he's not as likely to fly off the handle as some others there (or here).

There are a lot of other "good folk" at SLSF, but they're drifting away or following the Cards more by Twitter. More's the shame.

Not a fan of the character limited discussion yourself I'm guessing. .

If you tie a man's hands there is nothing moral about his not committing murder. Such an abstaining from murder is a mechanical act; and just the same in kind, though less in degree, are the acts which men are compelled to do under penalties imposed upon them by their fellow men. Those who would drive their fellow men into the performance of any good actions do not see that the very elements of morality the free act following on the free choice are as much absent in those upon whom they practice their legislation as in a flock of sheep penned in by hurdles.

That's a good example of the grammatical errors which Twitter & other texting media are encouraging in public discussions.

I believe in clear and concise communications. Sometimes the former criteria gets in the way of the latter.

Actively posting members, yes. However, a lot of people still visit there. As of right now, SLSF is reporting "There are currently 85 users online. 27 members and 58 guests" while BOTB is only reporting 12 users online, 6 members and 6 guests. However, there are more members posting here at BOTB than at SLSF.

Of course, the reporting software could be rigged, but I doubt it. Both sites are languishing, for the reason you pointed out in another thread. Fans have moved over to social media like Facebook and Twitter to gossip about their teams.

SLSF is likely enabled for iPhone/mobile

Still doesn't matter.

One of the most boring sites on the World wide web.

I mean, how many ways can you kiss Wunder Jerry's ass?

They had 3 posts today - 2 were by you.

WWWWWWWOOOOOOHOOOOO!

I think I still count as one of the younger generation, though my wife may beg to differ.

I use Twitter in a sports capacity mostly to keep up on headlines and breaking news. During games, about all I consider it good for is the occasional off-the-cuff comment from a reporter or columnist or maybe an injury update that didn't come through official channels. If somebody feels the need to live-Tweet a game, I won't follow them. I don't discuss much sports-related stuff on their either--it's pretty much one-way.

During the games nothing tops the forum discussions for me. Moderately-controlled audience (minimal peanut gallery input) and the ability to give topics the breadth and depth of discussing they deserve are invaluable. The reason I don't post much during the games is simply that I don't get to watch most of them. I do make it a point to pop in when we're on ESPN or MLBN, though.
