In light of recent happenings here on the offside, I had a few thoughts to share. Rather than post some long comment, I'll do what I've always threatened to do, a fanpost. First one so here goes.
On the offside, there happens to be a lot of people with worthwhile things to say. Unfortunately, the conversation sometimes goes south because of a few knuckleheads who don't want to make any sense. They just want to hear themselves talk, or read what they write I think. I can only speculate why they wouldn't want to at least come to an understanding. That's not exactly what this is about though. Where I'm going with this is that Gian, more than anyone gets more s**t than anything warranted. He got attacked pretty hard along with AviA, for what? Thinking something and explaining why he thinks so? Really?Whether you agree with Gians views or not, you have to know that his views are coming from a place of thought and honestly. At least he deserves the respect of someone who knows what he is talking about. Many of his detractors cannot say this about themselves. This isn't meant necessarily to kiss his ass, though love is intended. I don't agree with everything he says nor does he agree with everything I say. Golden! Free thinkers often come to different conclusions. That said, agree with most.
The biggest reason he deserves respect however is because of the way he moderates this blog. Folks you can say whatever you want. It's on you. You are free to make as much or as little sense as you wish. Have you ever been to other blogs? There usually so many house rules that you can't say s**t. They are so anemic that real discussion is impossible. Not all but still. I really think that fans are extremely fortunate to have an English speaking blog of this quality. Regardless of the silliness sometimes. Gian deserves all of the credit. Please acknowledge this.
Also, I have only recently been able to receive comments. I noticed that many comments are well received but the actual posts aren't. I've started receiving every post of Gian's and every fan post as well. I only started this very recently but I figure that if they go thru the trouble to do a post, agree or not, it should be acknowledged. Not to tell anyone what to do, but it might not be a bad idea for others to do this as well. They deserve it.
End rant. Most of this was something I've wanted to get off of my chest for a while. Aim your guns here!
