Maybe some of you that are into ths type of behavior can explain this to me. Why do people read a thread, decide they don't like it and go out of their way to post a response complaining about that thread? It seems there are some on this board that like to just go onto a thread and start poop by criticizing the author or saying the thread is "stupid" (or worse). Or just to complain about which forum it belongs in (which is actually a pretty valid point, but still kind of petty in the big picture).. Sometimes these attacks can get pretty mean and personal. I know I have been subject to this type of stuff at times and I have seen others also attacked. It seems to me we're all fairly sharp here and passionate about the Pats and subjects surroudning them, so I ask you: If you don't like a thread, why even waste your time commenting or contributing or - even worse - attacking with profanity and personal stuff? Just don't read it anymore and move on to the next thread. Nobody's forcing anybody to read anything here. If people don't want to discuss a topic in a thread, then the thing will die a natural death anyway. This is the natural attrition. What good does spamming a thread do? By spamming a thread, you actually keep it alive because your criticisms push it back up the list!
