Maybe it's because I don't visit other boards. I've been a regular at 2 message boards...EVER. After a while, the people begin to feel like friends and family. I treat them as such. Poking fun most of the time, but being respectful at the same time.
Mike wasn't just ANY other poster. Because of who he rooted for, he caught much more flak on here than the normal person. The fact that he still maintained his dignity and still posted in a respectful manner speaks VOLUMES about his character IMO. And yet he still got a swift kick in the hind parts as he tries to leave peacefully from multiple people. And THAT speaks volumes about the character of some here. Just because a person roots for a certain team doesn't make them a bad person...but they sure do get treated as such by some. Anyway, I'll drop it as it really isn't going to change anybody's opinion I'm sure. Still depressing though.
