    Unfortunately there are some here who will spin anything that happens into an opportunity to bash our program. It’s annoying and destructive, but they just pile it on anyway like a giant temper tantrum. Unfortunately the only thing that can lift this cloud of negativity off our program is winning.

    Welcome to Gator Country! While your intent may have been to draw out more information on the commit, the assessment you provided that it was a trollish question, is fair. It would be one thing if you had thousands of posts under your belt that established you as pro Gator. However, when new, if you come out of the gates insinuating that UF is a placeholder for their arguably biggest rival, then people will assume the worst.

    If you are in fact an optimist, I suggest establishing that reputation prior to becoming the Diane Sawyer of GC with hard hitting questions. Again, welcome aboard!

    Reading comprehension is a lost skill. I never provided an assessment or insinuated a thing. I simply asked a couple of questions.

    Funny how kids' parents magically get smarter as the kids become adults, isn't it? Your mom was a wise woman.

    Meanwhile, I guess we've passed the time well today as we wait for Peyton (Joseph) Place to come on at 4:00.

    It's a sensitive bunch here. Always ready to pounce. Not worth arguing over.

    Ok, I can see kindness isn’t your preferred communication. I now think the troll moniker is likely accurate. [​IMG]

    Beautiful, I get called a troll and yet I am the unkind one.

    Right after I welcomed you to the boards and your response was to insult my reading comprehension. So yeah, you earned it. Congratulations! One less poster willing to listen to your drivel. From here on out, I won’t see your replies. [​IMG]

    Wonder if Stapleton leaving has any effect on decision.

    FTR, I never called you a troll. I just found your "honest question" to be a bit too cute and maybe a bit overly worshipful of the nice folks in Athens. So, in keeping with the "honest question" standard you've put forward, I asked one of you. Your general response, particularly to some others regarding your various and sundry posts, speaks for itself.

    If everyone would just block the trolls, they could only troll other trolls. Think of what a useful board GC could be when they fall silent and real discussions between actual Gator fans could be had. Time is too precious in life to deal with their BS. Go Gators!

    The guy apologized about 15 posts ago and gave a sincere response to Candy. Y'all can move on now.
