    I agree. Things got out of hand once some of us began supporting suck for luck. Losing does this, causes a rift between the fans.

    As long as you don't ever go down to the level of the namecaller you can always occupy the moral high ground.

    Never argue with an IDIOT, they will drag you down to their lvl and beat you with experience.

    I got called such horrible names. I was just trying to convey my simple opinion in a courteous non-argumentive way. Those ugly words hurt me

    Bro the easiest option would be to help support the site and join VIP. We have some very good conversations in there. No gloves on. Also you can not read those and move on, or you can use the ignore function for that member. You are correct treat others with respect the same way you want to be treated.

    We try to be fair. We let everyone post regardless of opinion, majority/minority it doesn't matter. Unfortunately we can not catch everything in every thread so time to time we miss things.

    Even if the opinion is not the popular opinion you have a right to post it, if you feel someone is attacking you personally and not attacking your opinion, report the post and the Staff will review it against the TOS and see if it warrants action. In the mean time, thank you for taking a level headed approach to this problem, I try to tell members all the time that it is perfectly in their rights to ignore posts that they feel have been beaten to death or are not valid.

    When in doubt, don't pout... Report it.

    I would like to report the Front Office for deriding the fans.
