    As with other sites that I've left or been asked to leave, if you don't like, you don't have to stay. Buy a site and run it yourself.

    Sadly, this is an example of the world we live in today. "Everyone gets a trophy...everyone's a winner" mentality. People can't handle someone disagreeing with them. Skin is as thick as paper mâché. lol :rolleyes:

    I guess I am just thick skinned. Not only do I expect people to disagree with my opinion at times, I really don't care if they do.

    But don't you want to know why? Might be that you're wrong and hadn't thought about it that way, or (this is a sports discussion forum, after all) it gives you a specific aspect to address.

    This is the attitude everyone should have. I can't understand these paper mâché-skinned people. Pathetic!

    And yet you still went and pettily went on a disagreeing spree with my posts when I disagreed with a single one of yours. :rolleyes:

    Actually, what you need is a different symbol for "disagree".

    What do people viscerally (another fancy word) associate the Big Red X with? It's the teacher marking an answer wrong. So it's a double whammy. The user of the X is assuming a superior position, the teacher, while not so much disagreeing as saying, "you're wrong!"

    You might want to consider one of these if you're not locked into the X by the software package:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=disagree+emoji&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=UztpVTm6p-SlMM%3A%2CHAyLR7-j6iDDyM%2C_&usg=AI4_-kRF5sizeF_6fJ6pw-Prll8x3R3ZSQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjIh62Dn4TfAhUILK0KHQB1CIoQ9QEwAHoECAIQBA#imgrc=UztpVTm6p-SlMM

    I'd go with this one:


    upload_2018-12-3_13-4-7.jpeg

    Dunno if you have to pay to use it.

    Personally, I don't care, but it might help solve some headaches.

    Thanks for proving my point. :D I disagreed with what you said. It's really that simple. There isn't some deep underlying reason for it as you seem to think. Is it that difficult for you to understand? Sorry I hurt your feelings.:rolleyes:

    Quoted for truth. This "rule" is definitely going to create many pointless arguments. Like you said, sometimes there is no point in continuing to argue with someone. Disagree and move on is the best for everyone.

    Would have felt left out if not getting one of his big red X's on this. :) Now let's see if I can snag another.

    I thought the poster "smacker" was pretty clear. He doesn't care if people disagree with him.

    We could do with this one more. I can use this in half the threads after any loss.

    I would guess that really depends. I read this forum and there are people that have good, informed and insightful comments, then yes. I also occasionally see people that just make personal insults, rude remarks or are just trolls or trouble makers. Then no, you only encourage them. All in all though I think most people here on this forum are decent and only wish to debate, but some don't.

    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. This is one laughable guy, LOL. Call this guy out on his cr*p and he goes running to daddy or "Papa" or whoever.

    Why even have a disagree button? If it causes problems.

    We have no issue with people disagreeing with others opinions. We DO have an issue with smartass and childish behavior towards other members. You're all adults, and we'd like you to act like it.

    If you don’t like longtimefan’s packerforum there is atleast 3 other popular packer discussion boards on the internet. I kinda like this one though, it’s less cheerful and I like it that way.
