    Why so much e-hate?

    Over the past couple of days there have been more 5 page long threads then I have ever seen on this site before. Unfortunately most of it has been arguing back and forth and attacking others for their opinions. I honestly do believe it has caused more and more people to avoid this site. I know I have disliked coming here for the past couple of days because all I would be reading would be depressing topics/stupid back and forth debates. Yes, Wes is gone. Yes, that sucks. But if something like that causes you to argue and moan with fellow fans (I'm talking about the fanatics here, the people who donate and fill up the seats) then you need to find someway to not let something like this affect you. Count to ten in your head, squeeze a stress ball, or even start a thread about facility improvements (those always seem to last 10 pages). But to get all worked up about something that is done and will never change and most people will never know the answer to (most people are just arguing about speculation, which is sad) is not something we as a fanbase should be doing.

    Just my opinion/rant for the day.

    And yes I know paragraphs are dandy new inventions I should use.

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    According to my buddy list here, I'm nobody's buddy, guy.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
