I have frequented the boards for a few years know and some of you may know me. I went through a period where I didn't post and now I came back.

Since coming back I've been met with nothing but hostility from posters, such as 'my opinion is ****', and ' i don't count for ****'. I remember a time where we could rip each other and have laugh but now it just seems it how nasty can you be to someone. Just not really the hype I remember.

It's not the Hype that sucks. It's you that sucks.

I'm sorry. I just wanted to be the witty 2nd poster for once. :)
 
Hey at least you replied, and yeah I'm kinda guessing I'm gonna get the whole 'stop moaning' stuff coming through...
 
Well, let's see what opinion of yours is being called ****?

Cause it just might be. Never know.
 
No, you have a point. I think there was an influx of idiots that outweighed the more level-headed, intelligent posters, either driving them away or else creating a hostile, bitter environment in response to all the stupidity running rampant. :huh::csad::down
 
Since a certain mentality has formed amongst a certain clique who frequent a spin-off board that shall remain nameless. That mentality states the only way to prove your own self worth is by insulting others over the internet. At anyrate, welcome back Logan :up: Don't like the vocal minority fool you. There are still plenty of good posters here.

Yup. Nothing says "I'm a badass" like throwing insults at people you don't even know, on the web. :up:
 
It's not as bad as all that. Welcome back and stick around!

I also find it quite interesting that at least two people (Immortalfire and Matt) on this thread were posters from back when I used to frequent the boards. Maybe it's that old thing where things always change and I've been away and come back and now there's hardly anyone here I know. I'm just a dinosaur.

I saw this giant change during the arrival of the 2006 posters. I've been reading the boards since Spider-Man Hype! and posters would always respect each other and they continued to, even through 2005 and a lot of 2006 but then a lot of posters came and a lot of the older posters changed and there have been loads of *****e bags running around flaming each other now.
 
I guess it depends who ya talkin to and about what, I don get any crap.
 
Yeah I suppose you're right Dangerous. I think i've just went into a couple of bad threads.
 
I don't know who you are, but welcome back and you won't find that attitude with me.

If memory serves me correctly, he's got Wolverine tattoos. He's good people. :up:

What does happen sometimes though, is people misinterpret the tone of something I say. I'l poke fun at something just having a laugh and someone replies to it seriously.

If you 'know' certain posters on certain boards here, you can have a laugh with them and call each other names.

Alas, there will also be actual d-ickheads on any board too.
