Actually, Troll, much of what you said I agree with. However, I'm unsure exactly how you would like me to rectify it? Do you suggest we ban the 4 folks you mentioned, several of whom have been here for many years?
I have called out various people for being too quick to tell a poster to go away or for being unfriendly. However, just as I've asked them and others to modify their tone, so have I asked everyone that if there is a thread you dislike - DON'T READ IT AND DON'T POST ON IT! Don't like stats? Ignore Bill's posts. Don't like "rah-rah" stuff? Ignore Eye and UPT. Don't want to see famous quotes? Ignore Paul's.
The only person here required to read them ALL is me and I just most of the time shake my head quietly at stuff that annoys or amuses me and read on. Why is that so difficult for others to do?
I hate to see VG leave too but she's a grown woman and must make her own decisions where she wants to invest her time and input. Over the 15 years or so I've been on this forum, many folks have come and gone......it's the nature of the beast.
I assume that everyone on this forum is an adult, reasonably intelligent, and interested in talking about Tiger Woods. The various threads do introduce a variety of opinion and positions, all of them probably valid. I certainly don't want to offend anyone when I disagree with their opinions by expressing my thoughts on the particular subject. I would hope that applies to all. It would be a lot more enjoyable to avoid personal attachs on one another.
