Quote:Negativity in and off itself is not a bad thing, as long as the negativity stimulates a constructive discussion. Negativity for the sake of being mean, denigrating or even for the sake of trying to prod another poster is over as of now.

Being negative about something that happened, recently or in the past is ok...as long as it is in the context of the thread subject. Making posts for the sole purpose of being negative...or posting negative hugely trangential statements (as in a continuing theme...a.k.a. about a past administrator, coach or player) is not.

Basically stay within the topic. Do not attack others because their view do not match yours. Do not make inciteful posts even if you are thinking you are only being funny. Such things are not funny to everyone.

People who aren't reading this thread aren't around to tell us why, skewing the data.

1,500 views and 16 replies? I'm certain that many have read it and simply not replied, as I hadn't until now. I've talked to a number of people at the football tailgate who said as much, that there was so much acrimony here that they either didn't read the board much any more, or did not participate in the threads as a result.

A certain amount of disagreement is healthy, but continually inciting pissing matches gets old in a hurry. Most of us don't come here to watch half a dozen personalities clash.

Well, used to be we didn't, anyhow.

I'm one who rarely posts any more. Too much complaining on here. I've even taken myself out of the various UAB sports pages. Even more complaining there.
