Heard through the grapevine that the trigger was finally pulled. A shame if you ask me. Since when do pressure groups dictate who's a good Pats fan and who's not? This sets a bad precedent. If somebody isn't in the majority or has a strong opinion about something, he or she now needs to fear the possibility that their membership could be terminated. Here's a way where we can have everyone included but spare this part of the forum from the usual back and forth war of words that so often occur in threads like these.... I propose a "Pissing Contest Forum" where forumers can create 10+ page threads bickering back and forth with their online foes. Instead of banning the least popular member, immediately send threads that devolve into such contests to the new forum. Finally, this is the internet, don't take yourselves so seriously. Let NEM back in. This is all I have to say.
