    You may not be able to change a situation, but with humor you can change your attitude about it.

    I assume so too but would hate to think anyone is being driven away by something that we can control and which isn't a big deal to avoid. The losing we can't do anything about.

It seemed like some of the origin for a change in the attitude came from the occasional game thread which would have a more adult tone than others. This has crept into the ORG as well but so far seems to me to be clustered in certain threads. I will happily self police myself. I think I got through the Dick Pole era that I should be able to restrain myself again. I have been noting a decline in the amount in posting and would hate to think things here were alienating anyone from participating.

    Now if the Reds bring in guys called Bud Roach, I am still going to make pot jokes.
    And within minutes the Reds bring in a guy called Wood. This just can't be made up.

    I've had several mods "like" my posts. If you sent me the names of the trolls that are being allowed to run amok, I can probably get my mod friends to look into banning them.

    Are we even trying anymore with all the pizza talk? I get it, the trades/non-trades are frustrating, maybe embarrassing, but really?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13, 15
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    The pizza thread doesn't actually stick out. Maybe there was a time.

    Re: On the declining quality of the ORG

    I dunno, it does to me. We certainly can get off topic on threads, and I don't mind that at all, but all those pages in the Chapman thread about anything BUT the trade, then the same thing in the BP thread. Lot's of folks on here I consider friends I've never met, but I also come here for some baseball news.

    Don't take it personally, Larry. You are perhaps the greatest poster in the history of posters with the exception of the Jimi Hendrix concert poster from the experience's concert on 1/15/69 in Stuttgart. Now that's a good poster.

    The EL VY Bladerunner themed poster is pretty slick too.

    Zappa in the Crappa has nothing on Larry as posters go.

    Been enjoying salami on pizza lately.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I spent an hour researching the connection between Phillips and pizza and could find nothing. It was then that I realized RZ has passed me by in some unknown way.

    I know it. They thought removing my section of the site would send the hint. Clearly, I'm a little slow on the uptake.
