This is like watching Ali/Frazier, but in 2009.

It's just DB being DB.

He doesn't know your wife, husband, girlfriend etc.

Nothing should be taken seriously from him. His insults are not even that hard hitting.

Give peace a chance.

We are not attacking him...we just want to go out for a beer with him.

I can honestly say, DB, that I don't ever remember seeing NTB make any jokes about you.

Personally, I could care less if you post the jokes I sent you or not. I didn't post the e-mail itself, only what I was told by NTB as to why he doesn't post here anymore. And, yes, it was because you got personal.

The reality is, you don't respect other posters. Hedwynn is an example, when she asked you not to post the big pictures because her server slowed down because of them. You made it a personal issue. MoReb took exception to your reference to his wife. Whether it was meant as a joke or not, he obviously didn't see the humor, if that's what you want to call it.

MP,

Just tell others to use the ignore function. I do on DB and it works like a charm.

Just because it's OK with you doesn't mean it's OK with everyone. That's why we have manners in the world. We don't stoop to the lowest common denominator of behavior in a community just because some people don't mind the lowest standard. This is a community and we actually do have rules of conduct on the discussion board and almost every other discussion board I've been to. I'm rather baffled that Rusty wants to ignore them, but I think it's because he got so much blow back from people when he tried to enforce them early on that he's decided to try to just make everyone happy with is obviously impossible and leads to anarchy.

Anyway, here are the rules:

Especially see number 2.

I have made lots of jokes on Buzzer and there wasn't any problem because he took them like a man. In fact we became friends...e-mailing each other and we are planning to meet when he visit Denver next Spring.
Thanks for the apology.

You can probably see that what you can do with Buzzer, who is a friend of yours, is different than what you can do wth MoReb and heddwyn and others with whom you're not friends and probably won't ever be.

As for my biased opinions. Opinions, by definion, are always biased. Everyone's opinions are biased. And I plead guilty to laughing at putter's joke about Michelle Wie's parents. I thought it was funny and, like you, I didn't mean to hurt anyone.
