New Board Approach

There are about a half dozen or so posters on the board who post nothing but critical garbage, often stating ridiculous opinion as fact. Many of them are also one trick ponies. I would never tell anyone what to do on a message board like this but I am wondering if the more serious posters, those who are willing to defend positions, bring good knowledge and listen to others would simply ignore them, if they would grow bored and simply go away. I really think many of these posters get off by getting reations to posts they know are stupid. Anyway just a thought.

The problem with that is the board becomes crowded with nonsense when you ignore it.  I enjoy hearing what newinn, Big Guy, yank, quik, MAX, laura, Mo and many more have to say about this team.  Sometimes the nonsense can springboard an interesting conversation.

   We all choose what to read and when to respond to the messages that get posted here. A few of the regulars seem to enjoy communicating with some of the regular trolls who hange around here. If that is what makes them happy, good enough.

OK, you guys make some good points. I will however continue to ignore.

For the most part (99%) I have chosen to ignore them.  At the least not respond to them directly.  I do however notice, when Yankees are playing with a sizable lead, those troll are more or less silent. Those Red Sox/Mets trolls only raise their heads ready to strut when Yankees are trailing.

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

good post, here's a topic:  based on injuries this year do you think this should be our new coaching staff?

Haven't posted here in years...still read it, though. What the hell is going on here? A bunch of new spoiled posters who really don't know very much about BB!

Didn't like losing most of the west coast games (I was there for Fathers Day Yankees/A's). Love that we are still in 1st place and we finally get to see all of the youngsters. The season has a bunch of battles, but all that matters is that we are still in the war at the end!
