    The whole avatar thing.... isn't it a bit much?

    I can understand wanting to make posters earn their way into the ORG and it's fine by me. There's still another quality forum to enjoy discussing Redlegs. I can even deal with the fact I can't start threads.

    But the whole 'you can't have an avatar by your name unless you're in ORG'.

    What is up with that? I would like to hear the reasoning behind it.

    It's the "there's not a human being on this planet" thing, but I've already made up my mind so why do I bother replying?

    Man JB32, you seem to dislike a lot about the board. Why visit then?

    You forget that this is a board that is owned by someone. Someone who is allowed to make their own rules and guidelines. Believe it or not the grand interweb isn't a place where people just get to come and do whatever they want, whenever they want.

    There are rules in life, there are rules on the internet, you should probably just learn to accept that at this point.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I'm the exception that proves the rule.

    As you know, it's that time of year again. Just heard from the committee. Three more go on the shelf.

    Two for literature.
    One for knowing every line from "The Godfather".

    Hehe, if you don't believe him, just ask.

    Although a guy as modest as Raisor... it can be quite difficult to get him to talk about himself.
