The Boards have had their fair share of hostility lately, and I thought I'd bring the love. But with a twist. Rather than just "I love so and so's posts" (invariably leading to...why didn't anyone pick me...sniff, sniff...or worse, too sugary posts), is there anybody you really couldn't stand as a poster, but you made peace, something changed, you got to like the posts more, etc.?
This is NOT an "I hate xxxx" thing. But hope for us all. Well, if you're not a troll. ;-)
My example- Purplestuff. Our first interaction was a knock down, drag out, insulting argument, grown out of the complete insanity and running around without heads in the whole MSU-Iowa-Illinois debacle, where cool heads were not prevaling. But we made cautious peace, and as I got where he was coming from, what his style is, and have a feel for his tone, I find him wildly entertaining. He consistently cracks me up; and I like his points as well. Now, we don't agree on everything, and I KNOW he doesn't agree with everything I say.
But that's my example of another guy that my only goal was to take the piss out of, and now I look forward to his posts.
Anyone else have any similiar experiences?
