But anyway, good for him. If he loves this site that much, then maybe he should be a moderator. I like this site as much as the next guy, but post count means **** in terms of how big of a fan you are.

Especially when you can multi-quote threads instead of doing single responses to quotes and flood threads like I do.
I agree with this completely. I always scratch my head when people insinuate that a poster isn't knowledgeable simply because of their post count; it's just a number. An arbitrary, frivolous number.

Much like his namesake, I think he needs to do it in back to back years before we all start getting ahead of ourselves.

Another 30 point season please.

Agree that GAGline would make an excellent mod.

But you do know they can promote more than one poster at a time, right?

I'd vote for Sting/GAGline.



I like how I'm "news", LOL.

To watch me troll who exactly. I don't troll anyone around here and if you think that's the kind of poster I am then I'm sorry my 2 years haven't left more of an impression of a knowledgeable poster not the section troll.

No offense.
When exactly have I been a loudmouth? I have voiced my opinion around here but never voiced displeasure to the point of being considered a loudmouth.

I don't know where some of you come up with this stuff.

Really? Because there aren't any mods around here that feel so confident in their favorite team that they're willing to make a bet that they will succeed.

I seriously would like to think I have left some mark on these boards with my knowledge, but to be known as a troll, or a loudmouth really leads me to believe that I haven't really accomplished more than I needed to.

I wouldn't say troll or loud mouth necessarily. Attention monger maybe.

Gotta love controversy though, at least it keeps the boards interesting.

Even if I am finding myself as the center of it.

I think that was meant in a positive light.

I do make fun of myself but it really didn't appear to be in a sarcastic joking tone.

He'd ban half of the people on these boards.

Trading Kreider would be an automatic lifetime ban.

I think this thread could use a poll.

3 options:

"BB"

"I agree"

"Kesler did it"

(PS, it's rigged)

But putting all that stuff aside, he's an active (to put it lightly) poster, who's always on top of things when they happen, and even shows some good insight sometimes. Certainly not the dumbest younger kid I know. I'd be fine with it if he was a mod. More apathetic than happy, but yeah.

He's always provides a levelheaded opinion and debates with others in a classy manor. Are there other candidates that might be fitting for mod? Sure, but that doesn't mean BB wouldn't make a good mod.

People really give him too much **** for posting a lot lol. What was everyone else here doing when they were 15/16 years old?

Also, wanted to give a big, single thanks to all these posts supporting me. I've been truly humbled in this experience.

I would think that a poster named "Tube Sock" would be THRILLED that the lad has yet to arrive at puberty.

The what?

But, seriously, it's not as if I chose to spend my entire day on an internet message board. I've had to deal with some pretty heavy stuff the last 2 years or so, I don't feel the need to explain myself, though.
