Poll on discussions and posters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who would like to join a poll that threads NOT be dominated by a certain few individuals who are at each others throats all the time.
They never can agree with each other on ANYTHING and we have heard all we need to hear about certain issues with equipment, rules, balls etc. from them. We would probably get more posters with more/different views instead of the same few doing the majority of the posting and being at each others throats instead of discussing the issue at hand.
Gives us a break guys and quit dominating every discussion!!!!!!!!!

First off, I'll take this time to apologize to anyone who was offended, bored or threatened by any of my post. That was not my intention to do so. But can't anyone get involved in any of these threads, isn't that why this message board is in place? Just asking!

Pricer - in my mind you are a respectful poster. But anyone hijacking a thread, especially anonymously, is not cool and most of us would like them to stay off the board unless they are contributing to the subject.
If it is a personal attack, show some class and spare us.

pricer i'm with also,sorry guys about some of the stuff,but i can only put up with so much when pushed.

tate22,we have all gone thru this,this is a softball board and anyone should be able to post,just like all other boards that are on the internet.even by posting name and info doesn't mean a thing really.we still wouldn't know the person and how do we know if they posted their real name,just saying thats all.i had mine up there for a while,but have been leary of having info out there that can be used by scammers now.it is so easy for someone to use it with out you even knowing it.

well have fun guys and hope to see some at some up and coming tourney's,dalton in sept,phx in oct.... bob 60 AAA dallas spurs #77,that is the extent of my info.....

Great points, guys
and Jeff, you're a good man.
Saying the same thing over and over again?
Well taken.

Don't start anything
and don't take it from anyone who does
sounds like a good way to be, Robert
for all of us.
What do you say?

What an interesting concept!
This reminds me of the story about the scorpion and the frog.
The local creek had risen due to recent rains and the scorpion, a non-swimmer, could not cross the creek at his normal spot. So he asked the friendly frog if he'd carry him on his back to the other side.
'No' said the frog, 'you'll sting me half way across'...
'No way' said the scorpion, 'if I sting you we both would die'...
The frog, against his better judgement, began to carry the scorpion on his back and all went well until they were almost to the other bank. Then the scorpion sunk his stinger deep into the frog's side.
'Why did you do that', asked the frog.
'I couldn't help myself' was the scorpion's response... and both parties were impacted.
Whether this story is analagous remains to be seen.

Woody, you old Hall of Famer, you.
Good to have/see you back on line.

You see?
It all just goes to hell when you're not around.
That Frog story is, sadly, a very telling
little allegory about life
that lots of us can relate to.
Ouch.
How's GSF doing
and will you guys be in Reno for SPA
over Labor Day?

Mark, I thought that it was funny. I did learn that there is an actual slang dictionary. I had no clue that there was such a thing. I should stay in touch with the current trends. Thanks Harry

Jim, are you referring to a thread or a poll? Are you looking for another message board that won't allow this type of nonsense? In my opinion, the reason it's mostly the same folks posting is because some people just don't care enough to engage. What kind of threads would it take to get other folks involved? I do agree that the personal banter is just not constructive. It's more destructive! Just asking?

There is a new board that looking for a jump start and would love some senior softball input. Any suggestion or comment would be welcome. The WSL I believe will make a better push towards senior softball in the future. Give it a try.

I was just asking if the majority of the people on this board are tired of all the childish bantering and forever hi-jacking ever thread to highlight there pet peeves with useless garbage over and over and over.
And yes many are already looking to other posting places just because of crew that needs "TURN OUT THE LIGHTS"
