    The losing needs to STOP!

    I have been using internet message boards for years and years and years, going back to using usenet as far back as 1989. I have witnessed many a meltdown, and have noticed a correlation: the more we win, the fewer meltdowns I see. Winning more games would fix things nicely.

    Well maybe if we had more than one scoring threat, then winning would be a possibility

    20 years of message boards is a good time to call it quits

    Re: The losing needs to STOP!

    I've been on message boards for a long time and have witnessed a correlation between meltdown threads and losing.

    I think the meltdown threads need to stop so we can start winning again.
