    CF turning into a Hawkeye discussion board?

    I, a Cyclone fan, have been attacked numerous times by other Cyclone fans because of my opinions. I respect other peoples opinions. My gloves are off, Cyclone Fanatic is turning into a Hawkeye discussion board? It's obvious most fans here agree on Cyclone sport topics. However, I am not part of this status quo and I have received a backlash. I go to ESPN.com message boards expecting theses things but not here. I'm already on my 2nd account here. But it's done, I'll get in little trash fights. Anyone have this problem? Probably not.

    I have noticed more of that as well. Maybe from the long winter?

    Wouldnt worry too much about it. There are more who probably agree at times than dont. As for being a Hawk board, yeah it does have its fill of Hawk stuff, which will never go away. Its just the nature of the beast. Tends to flare up more when nothing much is going on Cyclone-sport wise.

    As a kind of guideline...

    Post with inelligence and respect, and you will avoid "backlash". If you still feel you are getting backlash, ignore it or report it if it is violating site rules.

    Message boards are....well....message boards. Take them for what they are. Personally, I like CF 1000 times better than any other message boards I've ever posted on.

    Re: CF turning into a Hawkeye discussion board?

    So because I said non-conference games instead of pre-season...I was posting without intelligence? People will have brain-farts from time to time, doesn't mean that the hounds of hell should be released on them.

    Re: CF turning into a Hawkeye discussion board?

    I'm not too sure what you're getting at, friend. My stance is this - a message board is a place for opinions. If you put yours up, there will be people who disagree with you. By choosing to put your opinion up in a public forum you are saying you are willing to handle other disagreeing with that opinion. If you are angry people disagree with you, then I would suggest you refrain from choosing to opine yourself. If members on here are attacking you personally, not your opinions or comments, that is a totally different manner. And there will be those who choose to attack another opinion as wrong, but I believe for the most part that a disagreement is simply two different opinions. I don't think most are trying to tell you that you are wrong; they simply don't agree with you.

    This could be the first post stating the the moderators don't do enough.

    We try to keep attacks under control. With the goal of making this a friendly kid safe site.

    I'm not referring to brain-farts, I'm referring to social intelligence more than anything. You know the people who post stuff to get a rise out of people, and that is their only motivation.

    I wasn't saying that you don't do enough, I love CF and think it is great. I was just putting my opinion out there for public crticism.
