LTS is the best poster on this board and has been for years.
Wow... Thanks. I happen to think we have a lot of fantastic posters on here. I think it's why this place is such a draw for all of us.
Idk, I have been bitching about Eichel's floating for 3 years now. This year he seems to be better but still.
Likewise. I think a lot of people have been. I don't think you have to condition every post made about Eichel with it but it's good to know that people don't think he's Casey Mittlestadt.
"Know hockey" is the operative term. If a first post is a legitimate knock on Eichel, what do you think the response is going to be?
What I'd like to see is no distinction between a first post and a 10,000th post. The Internet is supposed to be democratic that way. If a first post is crappy, no need to jump. We all post crap.
I think that's a great indication of the problem with the Internet. As though because it's the Internet you don't have to try as hard. I see each discussion as I do in every walk of life. It's a chance to debate a point on its merits and those who create the better merits (or are more convincing) are the ones who are going to show as correct.
Just because it's the Internet does not mean you should not approach your discussion any differently than if you are having it face to face (except for perhaps calling out areas where body language might have enhanced the message you were saying).
But discussions are only democratic in that everyone should have a chance to contribute to it. It doesn't mean everyone is right or that everyone's opinion is equal. Everyone's opinion should be accepted based on the supporting information provided with it and be given the chance to be equal or superior to the counterargument.
