Default Thank you!!!!

I'm sure there are multiple people who don't care about this. But I feel it is important to put this out there.

I am a Lions/Browns fan in the only other sport I really care about. My Lions forum closed, so I found the next biggest forum I could in hopes there were at least enough non-idiotic people to discuss with. I, unfortunately, discovered this is not the case.

These people have this huge desire to discuss politics. Which, to be fair, I am all about. No matter what your view is, I am big on knowing all sides of an issue. In fact, I have been swayed before.

However, this Lions forum was all about the idea of just bashing the other side as idiots (no arguements, just "You are dumb." So, me, being the drunken idiot I am, I called them all out. And I got attacked. What was amazing, is I was called an idiot and they bashed me as intellectually inferioir. Now, what is amazing (sorry, I'm drunk and can't spell to save my life), is that they bashed me as an idiot with an agenda that does not understand anything (let me say now that I have multiple higher degrees and am considered one of the better people in world in my field. Not trying to build myself up, but I know science). So I continued to be called an idiot with no knowledge of anything despite this.

So, let me get to my drunken idiot point.

My point is, I had an AWSOME Lions forum before it broke. People understood there were others with more knowledge than them, and they listened. It reminds me of this board. We fight, we argue, but it is mostly intellectual with people who don't agree with me bringing up valid points. So thanks to everyone here for having a freaking brain and contributing to the intelect I see here. This is why I like this board much more than any other site around,

it's boring if everyone agrees with each other. It is even better to listen to what one has to say as you may learn something.

Aww.

I think the most important thing is we all love the Lightning, so it's hard to get too worked up about anything else. For me at least.
