View Full Version : The evolution of the "I'm leaving forever" thread...

In the last 24 hours or so, we've seen dozens of threads lamenting the fact that the Chiefs game will not be televised for a great majority of us.

During that 24 hours, the tactics/suggestions for people to be able to see the game have gone from amusing (calling DirecTV to get zip codes changed), to hopeless (calling the NFL to complain), to downright absurd (contacting the NFL's major advertisers).

At some point during that 24 hours, I (and many others) decided that it was only possible to post "No, the game won't be on Sunday Ticket" a few hundred times before it was to the point of being pathetic.

At that point, some of us (aka "me") decided to make jokes at other users' expense.

In response to that, I received a PM from a long-time lurker/infrequent poster who has informed me that because I made fun of their post and I am a mod, they would be hesitant to post in the future. Futhermore, they suggested that the quality of the Planet has gone down significantly as of late, and my behavior is to blame.

Does this qualify as an "I'm leaving forever" thread? Or is a PM to one person, albeit a mod, not sufficient?

I think we need to see the "I'm leaving and never coming back" thingy before it can be an official "I'm leaving forever" thread.

Besides, it makes it a lot easier to make fun iof them when they return.

And, it's not like Taco John ever did that. That's not what I'm talking about. In fact, I'm not even going to mention that. No way.

Its funny, a long time poster should know by now that our Mod's are just Mod's, its not like you guys get paid for the gig or anything, so why should they act different then they normally would? Hell, I think the mod's would chose just being regular posters over being a mod if it meant acting business like.

Eh, I don't see the need to start a thread about it. If someone sent you a PM, they probably didn't want this in the open. If they had actually started an I'm leaving" thread, then they'd be fair game. Are you trying to "get back" at them or something?

I started a thread about it because it's a legitimate question.

I did not identify the sender, I did not copy and paste the PM.

This poster singled me out and said MY behavior was contributing to the downfall of ChiefsPlanet.

IMO, the big problem at CP lately is the large proliferation of whiners that can't take a joke, but that's just me.

Full disclosure... I've been arrested twice. Once for MIP (minor in possesion of alcohol) and once for a bad check I passed in Warrensburg. Both happened when I was a kid in college.

On that second one, my mom was a police dispatcher, and saw that I had a warrant for a $35 bad check. (written in Warrensburg, before I came back home... I had no idea.)

We had a "Come to Jesus meeting" over that one... and she drove me to the station herself. It was brutal.

But no... I've never spent more than an hour or two in a jail cell. The holding cell was enough to straighten me up real quick-like.

I'm not sure if being arrested by one's mother makes one the world's most badass criminal, or if it makes one the world's most pathetic criminal. I know that it's not in the middle, though.

Tombstone is one of those movies I've seen many, many times and it never gets old.

It blows "Wyatt Earp" out of the water. I was not fond of Dennis Quaid's portrayal of Doc Holiday - after seeing Val Kilmer in that role, there is no comparison; Val wins hands-down. Kurt Russel is great and outshines Costner.

As evident by my avatar....the movie rocks.

You may have liked Kilmer's performance better, but Quaid BECAME Doc Holladay. He was a bony, abrasive, terminally ill prick. It was an amazingly accurate portrayal.

I like both movies - but one's a dramatic character study, and one's an action flick. Sadly, neither is all that accurate.
