    I don't want to be taken as a joke here. I know many of you have chimed in about not starting posts, which I may have violated that a few times. What else can I do to be taken seriously here, and I am being genuine.

    I actually clicked "show" so I could see what this was.

    Know what this apology thread is missing? An apology.

    I am truly sorry to anybody I have pissed off or annoyed. Here is what I need to know.

    How can I argue my points on here without pissing people off? And why is some peoples' humor on here okay but when I try to lighten the mood I get criticized. I want to fit in here and I am going to try one more time if that is alright with you guys. If I fuck up again I'll leave. But I don't want that to happen. I want to know how to be accepted into your world. Honestly.

    Fuck off, skippy. I told you how. People on the other thread told you how.

    Do it or don't. I don't give a shit any longer. I give a long rope nowadays, and you hung yourself with it.

    Good luck working anywhere that anyone on this board works.

    Lord, I will attempt to be nice.

    1. Don't post threads that objectify women.

    2. Don't post every thought that pops into your head. If you want to do that, start a blog.

    3. Don't post 47 times a day. If Double Down posted 47 times a day, I wouldn't want to read his posts, either. (OK, yes I would. But still.)

    Log off, fuck this site and go out and get some of that college trim. It's a moral imperative.

    Kiddo, this has been answered already. You haven't listened.

    Back off. Listen. Learn. Get to know people and how they react.

    Would you walk into a room of people -- all older and more experienced than you -- and say the same things you're posting?

    Most people here are, or have been, sports professionals. That's professional, as in paid. Not casual fans, although most were at some point and can be now, too. But they're able to discern fan rants from true discussion and can back up their opinions and be objective about the whole thing.

    But you know this, because it's been posted on multiple threads already.

    What you choose to do with the information is up to you. So far, you've basically pissed it away.

    Read my first sig line below. It's from a wise poster. ;)

    P.S. Don't let the more "demonstrative" of our little group overwhelm you.
