    Cancer on the board.

    This is from MedicineNet.com


    Cancer: An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread). Cancer is not one disease. It is a group of more than 100 different and distinctive diseases

    Re: Cancer on the board.

    I'm not gonna lie...I have always probably spent too much time on message boards, but I'm starting to run out of steam in some ways. Any comment in any thread is immediately turned to a GMac thread by sarcastic reference that isn't even all that funny in the first place. It's tiring to sort through the same old things to have a good honest discussion about anything or God forbid learn anything new.

    I know, right? It's almost as bad as those people that start threads and comment in threads to complain about others complaining.

    I think the issue is the level of discourse and the hijacking of threads, not complaining in general.

    I'm not complaining about complaining. I'm complaining about taking any thread on any subject and turning it into a bash GMac thread. I don't care if you want to start a thread called reasons why GMac sucks and detail out your beliefs. It would be old and played out, but it doesn't bother me. I may even agree with some of your reasons. I get tired of having a thread about, say, Fennelly that has nothing to do with MBB and someone has to come in and say "I wish GMac would watch BF coach to learn a thing or two." Because first of all that's a ratarded premise and second of all it isn't what the thread was about. If you want to hate on GMac, by all means, hate on.

    Some of us are trying to maintain a certain level of sanity while reading this board.

    I thought this was a thread about cancer, then you bring GMac into it?

    Yeah, it's about cancer, with no reference to what goes on on the board.

    Here's the problem. Either you don't read, or once you realize you're wrong you make dumb comments. Just admit you're wrong from time to time. It's okay. It happens to all of us on a daily basis.

    I'm on the board way too often, but I really couldn't give a **** about thread derailments, etc. If I don't like it, I don't ******* read it.

    It's not about not reading what you don't like. It's about facilitating conversation.

    Just read the posts that pertain to the conversation then. What is the alternative? Hope that people stop being people?

    Lets be honest, some of the GMac defenders do the same crap. Ive seen completely on topic threads where defenders drop crap like 'its only a matter of time before someone comes in and bashes gmac in here'
