I think it's a free country...you are perfectly free to go to an EXC event, get a front row ticket and flip Diaz off to his face.
Doing it on the internet is pretty passive aggressive at best, as he'll never see it, and it really doesn't do anything productive.
At worst, it represents a breeding ground for trolls...they'll point to a statement someone else made, make one a little bit worse; then someone will point to their statement and make one a little bit worse, and so on and so on.
I think this is a great board without the fighter bashing. I've gone over the line before [that fucking Kendal Grove and his fucking Team Dagger! Whoops! I mean those upstanding young citizens with strong and earnest integrity...] and gotten negged for it by a mod...you live and learn.
But for the most part, it's a great board and a good policy.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
