Longtime panther fan here. Just had to get something off my chest;
I've been reading CSR since the beginning and have never been motivated to actually log in or register for this or any other message board. Not because I don't enjoy the conversation, but most of the time i'm content just to sit back and read what others have posted. (there are some extremely insightful writers on here, "James the Aussie" is one of my favorites)
But recently i've seen a disturbing trend towards fans of other teams coming on message boards that are clearly for our fans just to trash our team. Quite frankly it's classless and it pisses me off. Today I just couldn't stand it anymore, there is a particular Saints fan who has relentlessly interfered in discussions and insulted our fans and our team on multiple boards. I flet I needed to say something, so I finally registered for accounts here and at the Charlotte Observer and proceeded to let him know what I thought of him and his opinion. I'm sure my comment will be stricken down by the message board gods over at the CO before long, but the fact that within minutes of my post several of the regular panther fan posters had given me positive responses lets me know that it needed to be done. I'm sure this particular fan won't get the hint, but hey, it still makes me feel better. I'm not out to be mean to anyone, I just want to chat panthers with other panthers fans in peace, and if someone chooses to go out of their way to disrupt that peace they get what they get.
Anyway, I look foward to continued meaningful and insightful discussions with my fellow panther fans here, and i'll try to chime in from time to time if I have something worth saying. But if you're a troll and you happen to be reading this, know that the only reaction your drivel will get from me is a facepunch...89 style. Thanks and goodnight
