It cracks me up that this is the Chargers board what with all the bashing and every doubt being ruled against the Chargers.

It's almost like people don't realize that the Chargers PAY for this board.
The bolded is irrelevant to me. As long as people follow the rules, doesn't matter who pays for the board. What a sorry board this would be if we had to refrain from expressing a negative opinion of management.

Red herring much?

Nobody's stopped anybody from being critical of the FO. It's been going on for years.

But now we're at a place where you and a few others bash them without any knowledge of any wrongdoing. Just bash for the sake of bashing. And unlike "1984", the government has nothing to do with this. It is a guy writing a check to keep up a message board. Why would he continue to write checks if it became nothing but a bash-fest? I wouldn't. Would you?

It is interesting sometimes. The novelty will fade, and those who haven't left yet, will.

Then the unabashed bashers will be alone, in their blissful (yet perverse) need to perpetually hold on to the reciprocal of their fandom.

It's kind of apocalyptic. Really, this board should just get flushed and reboot.

That's where I see this headed, as well.

Unfortunately.
