If we could only all just get along. You know I will always support a healthy debate, but you guys know I do not like the name calling and insults. It will just drive good posters away and scare new posters away as well. This forum is the smaller portion of my website, but certainly the one I enjoy the most these days, the main website is pretty much self-maintaining. 5-6 years ago I turned down an offer for $18K for my website. The biggest reason I couldn't put the contract I signed in the mail and send it back was because of the forum. The forum is a fraction of the size it was then, I just want to see it grow in a healthy manor.
And Babs is right, I am slammed these days. I wish I had more time to post here, I used to check in many times a day, it was like my "smoke break". I was too busy before at my last firm, and now that I have started my own company, I am busier than ever, and I apologize I am not here more to better moderate the forum.
With all that said, I hope you all enjoy the forums, post away and have a good time here. Debates welcome, name calling and insults, not so welcome. I appreciate everyone here, I think it is great to have a forum and a great place to post. I love this board and I want to see it stay healthy. I have seen too many other forums slowly die off over the years, I do not want to ever have to remove this forum from the list of things T4U provides due to lack of activity.
Well said sir!
To that end, despite my newness here, but in the best interest of seeing this forum prosper, I humbly request that posters refrain from unprovoked posts such as the one below *
(reply #41 in this thread), which contribute nothing to the topic, or to the forum community in a positive light
, but serve only to provoke or incense others, by ridiculing or mocking another poster's style. Even if the original poster or some others might see this as a form of humor, it is clearly negative, derisive, and an indirect "attack" against one or more posters and should be discouraged by the forum community.
I've seen other forums become useless because of this type of posting attitude. Too many posts degenerated into "flame wars", where all of the reasonable posters got tired of all the nonsense and bickering and left.
masterclass, please follow the program and use "CLAY" or "DEATH" or "PRAY" or "WARRIOR" at least once per paragraph. It's more likely that others will respond to you.
Here, I'll do you a solid and rewrite your post.
CLAY WARRIOR understands what you are doing...but it's your DEATHKNELL. I'm listing and totaling the individual end results and one can only have 1 result per match. PRAY for mercy fellow WARRIOR, for doing it your way falsely inflates the numbers in that regard. CLAY DEATH WARRIOR thinks it is understood by everyone that if one wins the CLAY title they have also SLAYED MERCILESSLY the first round through the final, or if one makes the final that they have won from the first round through the semifinal.
Look at it this way, WARRIOR. If one took to a stick to record in the RED CLAY the total number of tournaments played as well, and the player did not finish lower than the semifinals, one might see something like this...
PRAY FOR DEATH,
