    I'm an old schooler who just recently started posting again and I haven't seen anything from him. He was always one of my favorite posters and, many times, the voice of reason around here. Just wanted to make sure he was okay and all was well.

    I think the level of stupid on the board drove him out.

    Have you tried PMing him? I heard he has his own board going on but you have to go through a screening process to get IN.

    I feel the same way. I look at this board religiously and see quit a few who cant understand the voice of reason. Which leads to my low post count. I learned to never argue with a ******* because they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    That's how I win most of my debates: experience.

    Can I just say, because I see this comment semi-frequently, what a shame it is that smart, good posters don't post more just because other Cowboy fans whose opinions they might not respect so much are going to debate them? It's easy enough to ignore their replies, or to say 'I'd prefer not to debate this topic with you' if you can't bear to ignore them. We all know what it's like to engage someone unreasonable. But the easiest way to have the board be more reasonable is to have more reasonable posters post more often.

    Notice, I'm not calling out any particular poster or attitude as unreasonable here. Just a recommendation that everybody share more opinions, all the time. You guys at least have ignore features you can use. I get to read every single post no matter how misguided it may be. :)

    Another thing...now that there's a LIKE button on every post, it's really easy just to like the content you appreciate and agree with most. The LIKES aren't redeemable for cash or prizes or anything, but it's a nice way of letting someone know you appreciate something they took the time to share. You can already see trends in a short time re: the types of content our silent lurking majority likes best, and it's (in my opinion) the more positive and more informative posters that get the like-karma.
