I am writing to you today to make a plea for the laying down of our armed keyboards and missle delivering mice. I made a post a day or two ago that may have been buried in a long thread.
The RR/JH debate has spiraled into recruiting fights, anger at the cloak wearing Dave Brandon, the Michigan Robot scandal, and all around ultra-sensitivity to threads gone awry. I wish to share it again and hope that this holiday season and thread brings compliments, praises, Michigan football photos, strategies to beat the evil Bulldogs from Favrissiippi, remembering why we are all here in a place where maize and blue drip from every hyperlink, and being thankful to the wonderful forum in which we can allow ourselves to escape the harsh realities of work and society. Intellects do your things, MGoComedians do your thing.
The time? Four days before Christmas 2010. The place? MGoBoard. It has been months of the most devastating warfare in Michigan blog history. New posts were used with sarcasm, vitriol, nuclear warfare, and facepalms.The negging and bombing was horrendous and yet there was a call between RR, JH, and Hoke supporters to cease fire and they crawled out from behind their computers to peacefully celebrate the Gator Bowl. They sang Hail to The Victors, exchanged lol catz, posbanged each other's posts, posted funny pics, and buried their hatchets. This peace would last through New Year's Day. In the following weeks, hundreds would be negged in to Bolivian until a new leader was crowned. The next year, they would be united against the enemies of good once again.
A man can dream, a man can dream.
