Is Fisticuffs completely awful?

Am I really that bad?

Postby fisticuffs » Wed Nov 17, 2010 4:59 pm

Jjoyce seems to think I'm worse than the Flanders and HOMOsapiens of the forum because I respond to them. Specifically calling me out, theatening to ban me, and removing my posts. I ask: Am I really that bad?

I voted Worse Than Cancer, but only because you demolished me in Week 6 of the Foron League. Which in reality was more to do with my not hitting the save button when swapping out my bye week players... still, worse than cancer in my book.

Edit - a quick check of the standings shows that I'm still barely ahead despite my 3 game losing streak, so I'll go ahead and revise that to Not Cancer.

Aw man, worse than being a Cancerian from New Jersey? Damn.

You do tend to engage the trolls and righty-whiteys more than some, but somebody's got to I s'pose. I'd rather it was you.

It's all a rich tapestry.

Without weighing in on your questions specifically, I'll add that the outrage of and enforcement threats by jjoyce appear to be SUBJECTIVELY applied. I've seen many posts left unaddressed that warranted action.

No go ahead. I'm asking for it. Do I need more varying degrees of awfulness? Maybe some different types of cancer, ass cancer, foot cancer, panda cancer?

let's just say that it is easy for me to ignore certain posts in a string

Good point. There are mechanisms in place to hide content from myself or any other asshole you're sick of reading. Should I tally one up to "Something up Jjoyce's ass" since he could easily just not see my posts?

He's got a job to do. I don't think it would be in his best interest to not view all posts.

I browse the Forum pretty much daily. I don't see everything but I haven't seen anything that would warrant banning. I infer from Jason's post that the source of this is a conflict between you and another Foron. I've seen some of that but again, I honestly don't remember anything that made me think, damn, somebody ought to kick these guys out of here if they don't knock it off.

Maybe I'm missing something.

If that's the worst part of his work day I really can't say I'm very sympathetic.

I don't see the connection. You stated that he could easily just "not see" your posts. What I'm saying is that, in his role, he should be viewing all posts. How that involves sympathy, or the lack thereof, is beyond me.

Now THAT one I may have to weigh in on. Some topics are too important to let pass.

If reading my posts is part of his job and he's getting a paycheck to do so I don't see where the recent complaints are coming from.

My ass IS fat. Next question.

I very often disagree with you but I still think you bring an interesting perspective to discussions here.

That said, you would benefit from never replying to Flanders again. Nine times out of ten you're the first reply after he posts. I don't know if you're one of those people who enjoys being outraged, but it sure seems that way. Flanders really knows how to push your buttons.

But in my opinion, neither of you (nor HOMOsapien) should be banned.
