I agree I don't want to see ten posts of "BP just sux in the 4 hole", but there has to be some middle ground.
Or else all you have is George Grande like commentary. Thanks, but I'll have to pass on that.
I hope the moderators aren't too strict on the one word posts either..
Now, if someone makes 200 of them in one thread, that's one thing. But if a big play happens, it would be nice to just react. If someone wants to put 15-20 or so "Wows" or smilies over the course of the game, personally, I don't think that's so bad.. I agree that it's part of the flavor of the game thread, although I guess it annoys some.. But then again, I'm a big believer in using the ingore button to tailor Redszone to your liking..
I don't want people to be overinhibited on what they post. Spamming the game thread is one thing, but genuine emotion should be allowed (as long as it doesn't turn violent/attacking).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
