Josh, dont you dare leave us again. Bad enough we lost you for the better part of a year before. Actually bro, things on this forum sure have changed quite a bit over the years havent they? Some for the better, some for the worse.

I'll say this though, word for word, some of our x's and o's guys are really some of the most top notch football guys online. Its for that reason I love this forum bro. Even if I cant hold a candle to them as far as football discussion goes.

Sorry to hear that. While I don't always agree on your viewpoint on certain topics (example free trade), it has been interesting to get different view point that from different angle then way I think.

The reason I became a member here is because Broncomania closed the P&R forum.

ames, that's some very heavy stuff. But sometimes, friend, a jersey is just a jersey.

But seriously, your post raises VERY interesting questions ... I don't understand the economics or the revenue stream of a message board, but you gotta believe the more traffic the better for TJ. With the massive growth here lately, people who come here for NON-FOOTBALL reasons might be an excellent growth market.

Maybe a "OrangeMane+PLUS" half of the board .... with a blue background instead of orange, but originating with the same URL. He could put WRP in there, and the PhotoShop forum, photography, Off-Topics .... and leave all the Sports on the orange "OM."

He could add a "Tech & Computers" forum with videogames, PDAs, home theater, flat-screens, DirecTV, computers, IP, cell phones, photography, etc.... maybe a "Health & Fitness" forum for exercise, WWE, supplements, self-help, diets, health issues. USE this traffic bonanza ... give them MOIRE places to go rather than fewer.

Nay not really, I pretty sure some of the chef fans haven't figured it out yet. But then again, I not really sure if the chef fans have figured out to dress themselve yet either.

I believe we need Garcia to rule on this one. The use of the word "wittle" is evidently highly offensive to the male gender and only to be used by every single person of the female gender. So yes, I think we have some real problems with the quoted post...

I agree to a point, but in reality the sports forums are able to handle smack talk because of the relatively light nature of the discussion. You can smack talk a rival and still expect to get along around the watercooler. It's just a sport, and that's understood. You cant expect everyone to be able to take things less personally when dealing with issues that involve how your money is used by the government, whether or not your children have to die fighting for the country, or whether or not your community has the right to display their symbols.

I dont come around this forum as much as I used to because of the circular nature of the discussion. There are some great posters here who I enjoy to debate/agree with, and there are some that I dont see any contribution from at all outside of personal insults and/or thread hijacking. It seems as though every discussion ends up a "Bush sucks" group affirmation by a few posters. Most of us know that the government isnt doing everything that we hope that it would do. I would like to see the forum move on a bit from that into some real discussion about relevant topics.

Im certain that I havent been one to effectively mediate the warring factions of this board, but I have tried in the past. I also admit that I have been part of the problem at times by contributing to the volatile banter.

I have also seen great contributing posters drawn into the same garbage talk that I have been drawn into.

I'll do my part to cool it down. It's a politics/religion forum, and you cant expect everyone to agree with you, or to be convinced by your arguments. At the very least there should be a foundation of mutual respect for the forum (that we dont pay for), and for the right of all Omane members to have an opinion.

We can police ourselves by letting off the gas when it becomes obvious that we are pressing too hard. Give Taco and his mods a break.

I'm not sure - because TJ is not specific - but I don't think this is the "bad stuff."

In a million years I never thought I'D be calling YOU out Tredici ... but TJ has asked us to "do our part," so ... even though you're being funny, the words in RED, above, are wrong, Tred. CUT IT OUT PLEASE. I've never seen him use the "sh" word, anyway. But if you did, §pider, CUT IT OUT PLEASE.

Just keepin' it real ... doin' my part.

Wow, pure hilarity in this thread. I rarely post here but I do read sometimes.

This thread was good reading. You have the suck ups, the rebels, the level heads simply wanting to discuss the problem, the pessimists who are ready to bail, and at the middle of it all the great and powerful Oz refusing to answer any questions directly and resorting to giving vague statements about people "doing their part."

Forget any mock threads, this thread is the funny stuff.
