Honestly, the HOF is just not worth getting upset over. So many heated internet discussions over a glorified tourist trap. Plenty of people in the HOF that don't really deserve to be there. A few guys were omitted that probably should be in.
Not worth getting excited about.. no vote is going to change my memories of my favorite players.. I really don't care about the HOF.. I'm sure it's a nice place to visit, but I'd rather do other stuff with my vacation.
Abstaining isn't the same as a no vote. A no vote means three other guys need to vote yes to maintain a 75% of the ballot pace. Abstaining has no impact.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
