#1981496 Need to get this forum back on track

Posted by strik9 on 04 November 2012 - 11:01 PM

Yes. The problem posters fall into one of two categories in my experience:

1. The troll, a person who has nothing to contribute but they find redemption in trying to make those who do look stupid for sharing "an opinion. They are the people who read a topic, open it, and then post how dumb it is using sarcasm. Some surf the web to find an amusing picture so they get liked and pie. It makes them feel worthy. Recommendation: If you do not like the topic or the thread, either do not open it or simply close it if it is beneath your intellectual level. Spending 5 minutes putting together a humourous visual package to ridicule another Panther fan is sadder than any dumb post.

2. The person who cannot accept any opinion or position other than his own. Even if the topic is subjective and opnionated, these people think that there is only one correct answer and they have been dubbed by the football gods, "Keeper of the Truth." Their purpose is not to open their minds by listening to other ideas, but to argue and have a tantrum because they have so much self-respect riding on being right or having others agree with them. So much depends on social acceptance, and some are not braced for the sting of having their ideas rejected by differing opinions.

I can say that lately, I have experienced pleasant, mature comments that I agreed with in some cases, or silently did not in others. I appreciate the fact that somehow I posted when those with the self-esteem issues were pulled from their basements by Mom's announcement that the macaroni and cheese was ready, or I posted during the network premier of the "Twilight" saga. Whatever it was, a harvest moon or excitement on the scanner, I appreciated the intelligent and mature exchanges.

This and other problems already mentioned have diluted educated and well informed Panthers discussion. I've been a member for many moons. I've enjoyed the different views and knowledgeable opinions from folks that,unfortunately, no longer post. Zod you are to be commended for this site! Please enforce the rules and help restore informed dialog.

#1232738 Sweet tea is too sweet....

Posted by strik9 on 15 June 2011 - 09:12 AM

I miss sweet tea.

That and the food are what I miss most about the South. Oh, yeah, teh wimmenz too, all very pretty and they don't act like you are a rapist if you strike up a conversation.

Try to get that out here and folks look at ya strangely.

If you try to make your own from unsweetened tea, they say things like "looks like you like a bit of tea with your sugar." Fugging health nuts.

We call that an Arnold Palmer....not sure exactly why though.

I've never liked tea, whether it has sugar or not. Out West they drink "sun" tea. Put the tea bags in a glass jug of water and leave it in the sun all day, and as PanthaSan said no sugar. They do have tri-tip: not sure what cut of beef it is, but its a wonderful cut.

#1231531 Mellow Mushroom

Posted by strik9 on 14 June 2011 - 08:58 AM

That was the point. The pizza is not good, it's mediocre at best imo. This thread is not about not wanting to go to a hippie establishment.

Your right, and I apologize for my involvement in derailing this thread. I have tried their pizza (a co-worker brought a pie to work), and it was ordinary. I agree with your evaluation of this pizza chain.

yeah i do. A venue with live music or something like a noisy bar/grill could be an acceptable reason, but there isn't anything in your face about mellow mushroom. Not going there simply because of the kind of people that eat there is dumb.

Eating at a culinary establishment should be about the food, i feel sorry for people with misplaced priorities when they miss out on good pizza.

Going to a restaurant isn't just about the food, or all restaurants would be the same. They individualize to target a group, and this establishment targets to "hippies". I am not a hippie, and do not enjoy a hippie motif. This sir, does not make me dumb.

who needs a hippie tolerance?

you may need a wook tolerance, but a hippie tolerance is unnecessary

it's a shame this place is so full of people who can't stand anyone different than them

Sir, i have enjoyed quite a few of your post, but do not assume you know anything about me. I have traveled quite a bit, and in no way am I intolerant of others "just because they are different than I". As far as hippie's go - I went to school in Arcata, CA. I have been around enough hippie's to say, in general, I do not like or want to be around this group of people.

#1227927 Remember the Huddle crash of 2008? Where were you when it happened?

Posted by strik9 on 10 June 2011 - 12:33 PM

So did threads about football, defensive alignments, strategy, etc only to be replaced with countless threads about poo, homosexuality, and other useless drivel. Seems a bunch of old posters who didn't return were replaced by a bunch of folks with no clue about football. No offense to those on the board who actually do know what they are talking about. You know who you are. Unfortunately the ones who don't have a clue don't know what they don't know.

I have such a low post count, because I came here to receive news, updates, game recaps, and to read the opinions of those who were more knowledgeable about football than I. Now I come to waste time. It has always been slow during the off season, but I will admit the Huddle has decreased in football related news in recent years. Oh well.

Go Panthers!!

#1218945 The New Gateway Drug? It's Not Marijuana...

Posted by strik9 on 02 June 2011 - 10:03 AM

Pills are very dangerous, and unfortunately not new. I've been clean for about ten years now, but I still feel the need for the steal (needles). I've partied dang near all my life (and still do), but it was oxy's that killed me twice and took everything I loved. I thank god that I hit rock bottom, and had the strength to pick myself up. Not everybody is that strong, but pills are.

Life is a Garden

I asked my Mom how they did their worm bed (also a converted coke cooler) back in the day. She said that layers of old newspaper works. I have not tried it but that's what she said.

#1203184 Beason's civil trial starts today

Posted by strik9 on 17 May 2011 - 01:59 PM

You haven't met Greg Casey Frye have you? If you had you wouldn't make this statement about this case.

No I haven't met this Frye fellow, but I stand by my point. The NFL promotes itself and its players as role models for the youth of today. Professionals that are in the public eye (and more importantly role models for children) should be able to restrain themselves from using violence (or being around violent situations).:nono:

Go Panthers
