Dudes and chicks (I've been told there's a few). I haven't posted on these parts in a while, but at the risk of being spammed for the rest of my life I'm going to make a plea. Those of you remember "Plea to the McCoven 1" remember that it was a post decrying naughty language and general bad behavior....
Let's get to the point:
Can we try to cut down on the lame posts (this includes news everyone has read on SFgate.com but is posted here on the hope that there's one person in the world who ignores every single Giants site except this one)? You want to post an article and have a discussion about it? Great, but ask a question or make a point or do something, please. I'm a really stupid guy and I like for this site to make me smarter, not dumber.
Also, can we also cut down on things like F bombs and also rooting for people to get hurt (now I'm definitely getting spammed)?
OK, before you spam me, let me add one thing: When "Plea to the McCoven 1" (I forget who posted this) came out I must admit I was a little resentful of being lectured by some dude on an Internet site. But once I got past the childish urge to wish death upon anyone who would scold me, I realized there were some good points.
Point 1: This is a good site. Well written, almost always entertaining, and the author treats it like the high paying job it isn't. We blow off our jobs to read this thing; our host steals time from his to work harder (at least I assume he does). If you think of it in party terms, this site is an apartment your friend shares with his girl. As such, you don't puke under the couch cushions or put the fruit basket in the microwave. That's the kind of thing you reserve for a crash pad.
That's pretty much it. This is either going to resonate with you or anger you, but I'm saying my piece because I love this site. I've been coming here every day for almost three years. I've logged in from around the country (and I think overseas), I bought a t-shirt, and the sense of community even inspired me to chip in on a Christmas gift for some dude I've never met or spoken to (yuck). So, you know, I think I'm entitled to one bitchy post.
