    GR is going soft.

    It might be just me, but I've noticed that the type of PC crap you would expect on fagget boards like shittalk has started to creep into GR. I've noticed that in light of some recent dummy spits after posts being taken out of context, some of the regulars have been sugar coating their responses so they don't upset some Johnny come lately sooks here. I must admit that I myself have been guilty of treading lightly at times, and not telling it exactly as I see it, for fear of treading on some crybaby's toes.

    This might be a result of a direction over zealous mods trying to push GR in these days, I don't know. But whatever the reasons, the end result is a 'sanitized' golf related forum which has lost it's spark. I am calling on the mods to do their bit to arrest this insidious development and bring a return of the glory days of GR when members could post any response about any topic without fear of reprisals from well meaning but ultimately misguided mods. I don't profess to know all the answers, but the immediate reinstatement of Spank and the original Teesee would be a good place to start.

    For the record, my comments do not relate to the swingspeed/religion thread or anybody on there, but is more of a general observation. This thread is not meant to offend any individual as it is not personally referring to a anyone and I would hope that it is not closed or moved to the non golf forum, cause if it was it would be a sign that things are getting worse.

    Perhaps you haven't noticed but the membership has grown stagnant due to the proliferation of posts which attempt to rip into anyone & everyone. Then you have the huge amount of postings from the various Sybils on this site who have an overwhelming need & not just a desire to exhibit 3-4-10 different personalities & it all gets so very tiresome.

    A website is much like life in general, in particular the dinosaurs. You either evolve & adapt or you die off.

    I disagree. I see new posters here all the time. Most of them even use their first post to start new threads or to agree (in a very similar writing style) with a thread by a fellow new poster. These newbies have shown themselves to be quite knowledgeable and have started some good threads eg. the maximum backspin thread. They are the types who need to be encouraged to stay.

    I agree with NAH. We simply don't have enough rude people or enough flaming or trolling that we need to attract mature, intelligent, contributing members to this board. And I'd like to see a few more threads devoted to figuring out who is posting on various aliases. That always brings a spark of interest to the board. And I'd like to make a plea for more name calling directed toward people not intelligent or wise enough to agree with one's viewpoints. THESE are vital and are the necessary steps that will help bring back the "Glory Days" of legend and lore........
    Seldom right, never in doubt......

    Your above disclaimer is a perfect example of what is wrong with GR. Grow a sack.
    Stop dragging my religion thread through the mud. It was an intelligent discussion.

    Blah, blah, blah, blah....

    Who cares about your professed "glory days"? The mods are doing a good job and it's great that they moved this POS to the Non-golf forum. This dribble is exactly what GR doesn't need. Go back to hacking your blades on your goat track.

    Lighten up and take a chill pill, you gibberer. When I came to this site there was plenty of friendly banter and flaming. I even remember JS being one the prime offenders. I seem to remember plenty of people online in those days. Unfortunately you are entitled to your opinion so I won't be an ignorant cok like you and come staright out and attack your views. Your personality on the other hand I will critique. You seem to be a very small minded person who lacks the objectivity to view other opinions on their merits, and who just blindly attacks anyone who puts forward something you don't agree with. I pity your friends and family.

    HB, I wasn't dissing your religion thread. Just clarifying that my comments weren't specifically inspired by the (unnecessary and unforseseen) fallout of that thread (of which I seem to remember old poe himslef was largely responsible for). I was referring to the forum as a whole.

    Just F-ing with you man, I didn't expect you to rise to the bait so easily; you're one of the seasoned veterans around here.

    I will take you attack in true GR fashion, ignore it.

    I don't have a problem with what you are saying but I would suggest we look forward and not back. What would you suggest to bring GR back to the glory days? Pure honesty? More insults? I think part of the problem is we have too many posters that don't post anything but flames. Very little honest discussion without juvenile retorts or all even flat out troll's like my last post. While the regulars can handle these jabs the newbie just gets insulted and goes to a different forum. Obviously I'm not wanting to water this down to that point that the site is Shittalk but something has to give to get many new posters to hang out long enough to get the hang of it and grow thicker skin.

    BTW - I did not partake in the religion threads or comments. My comment was political in nature in the swing speed thread. I was in agreement with D-man on the religion thread that no good was going to come of that thread.

    Damn it! I actually thought I had got you to take the bait and was trying to reel you in. Should have known better than to think a veteran like you would take such a transparent piece of trolling like this thread starter.

    In spite of the obvious trolling, I was trying to highlight how the forum has gone backwards in quantity and quality since the trolls have been silenced. When I first got on the forum, the references to sexuality, parentage, and sexuality of parentage were commonplace and taken in good fun. Now it just seems that the fun has been taken out a little, in spite of the best efforts fo Spank and his many aliases. I think Mr Wiggles and Pro Status are two of the better new members we have here, and I would like to see a return to the relentless 'I had sex with your mom' type of comments to compliment the serious golf discussions.

    Can I get a witness from the congregation!?!?!?! AMEN, brother, PREACH IT.

    It WAS an intelligent discussion.

    And speaking for myself, I took nothing out of context. :-)

    GR is going soft?

    That explains the Cialis and Viagra spam. I guess they were just trying to help.
