Everybody here understands hyperbole.

Most of us have a sense of humor (even if it is a bad one)

There are many others. Lets see where this goes.

I'm on the. Fence withs this one. He's fun to laugh at sometimes. Plus he predates me on here. He has also kept it up for over three years (he may want that checked out (caught it before someone else said something)).

Here nobody is screaming for somebody to get fired every single fucking second. Oh and here I feel free to say FUCK SHIT DONKEY BALL ASSHAT without a lecture. Plus I can just not read threads I don't care about about.

So if I posted my conspiracy theory about diehard, which is completely outlandish but just crazy enough to be possible, I don't think that would be ironic. It would be something weird like irony though.
I do believe my theory would get me a warning post for slander, though...

Most of the good reasons are listed.

 

-Most of the people I want to interact with post on the message board. 

-It's easier to track conversations.  I don't have to read about how someone should be fired/traded/sent to minors every other post. 

-More accountability to everyone's statements, if all someone does is post bullshit, it's a lot easier to mock them and call them out. 

-The sense of humor hits closer to home here too, probably because of the lack of filter on most of us that post regularly.

-Lastly, this is where the Women in Baseball thread is located.

So what if, and mind you, this is pure speculation, what if die hard is simply Brett's alter ego made to spice up discussions on the main page? Think about it. Brett writes all of this reasonable logical stuff and then thinks "So how can I contrast it? Oh, I know. I'll come up with completely ludicrous thoughts an ideas under an assumed identity." Over time, the character has become better developed and more absurd.

And gave us the board mascot.

Think about it....

( I hope I didn't just pull the mask off of ol' Lone Ranger.)
