Myself, I use the recent threads list on the side.
I think it comes with the "reputation" of the one who makes the suggestion.

Since "thecrow" and "charlie" came into the board, I have heard fabulous poster as xman5 and BKB ponder about maintaining their presence in the board. It is not a coincidence, according to the "Elf" (a neophyte "Nancy Drew") that difference between posters are appearing. Would not doubt that someone wants the DB and is trying to decimated it before making an offer. "thecrow" and "charlie" are not a simple coincidence but a direct attack on the board and some of the vulnerable key members .

Watch it Rusty
Vulnerable may not be the right word. One (xman5) manages the member contests that pulls a lot of posters and the other one (BKB) posts great videos about Golf and other sports. After that they will attack other key members. Probably Lo Jo and Marine Paul.

OK, enough of the BS...thecrow has done nothing to drive "the fabulous poster"'s away, a little strong headed with the Korean players getting screwed over but brings some much needed spice to the forum. As for Charlie who brings a lot of knowledge and kicks my ass in the contest ...I'm sure BKB (who I consider a good friend) has moved on.

Elf, it was another posters comments that ticked off xman5 (and for good reason)!

Me too, good Lord, it doesn't take THAT long to find what you're looking for. First Korean haters on the LPGA and now "user friendly haters" on this forum? When will this end? Of course, whiners will be whiners.

JJfan: You are one of my favorite posters and I love you (as a brother or as a friend). So I will shut up. But I will not apologize because of my statements about "thecrow" and "charlie".

That is true, maybe it could be implemented in a "weighted" manner. I.e. folders have a weight -- the more golf related they are, the higher their weight, and the weight of individual posts is inversly proportional to their age. In this way, a new post on say the NBA would beat an ancient post on the LPGA. On the other hand, an LPGA post only a few day old, would beat a new post on the NBA... of course such a formula would need some tweaking.
Anyway, most posters don't want this, so thinking up ways to implement it cleverly is a waste of time.

I am not sure if "whiners" is a fair description for those fighting against racial biases.

Alas, I guess, most posters of this board have been following the LPGA for a long time and thus have become accustomed to the persitent biases against Korean golfer. For me, a relative newcomers, these biases are painfully obvious.

Racism 'works' both ways.

Many of us here, myself included, got interested in the LPGA because of Se Ri Pak. Others are huge Grace Park fans, and God knows there are a ton of Wie fans here. What do they all have in common? Oh, my God, they're all Korean, or at least of Korean heritage.

I like good golf, regardless of the heritage of the players. I like many of the Asian players, and many of the caucasian players. There are also some of each that I don't especially care for.

Alas, I think your agenda is to cry racism any time you get the chance.
