[UPDATE: I'm a dork. I'm causing the exact type of drama I HATE to see. Ignore this. Just chaulk it up to me waking up on the wrong side of the bed. ARG, why can't I just delete this thread ]
That is all. I can't stand it anymore. Evidently voicing one's opinion (even if it is in reaction to someone else's opinion) gets you flamed no matter what you are, who you are, what you've contributed in the past, etc.
For the niners I've chatted with privately, I'll miss you. Everyone else, forget about it. It's not worth the time and effort.
