Let's calm this down rather than amping it up.
I wasn't criticising you for supporting the Crusaders in the forum. I was primarily commenting on your previous post and that alone.
Nor was I saying it your posts are spam. The other guy said that. I don't have any problem with the number or quality of your posts.
Your "one-eyed" response in the post I pointed to was characterised by:
- Assuming that any dislike or criticism of the Crusaders or any feature of that team must be irrational and unjustified, e.g. "Go calm yourself down. Your irrational hatred for the Crusaders (and me it would seem) is what is tiresome."
- Attacking the person rather than the argument, e.g. "Share with the group your knowledge which is obviously far superior to the rest? Educate me, knower of all."
- Feeling superior and entitled to say things like "Oh, give it a rest already! Boy what a prize rant!"
I thought that tuapaka1 had some home truths for you to reflect upon.
I'm also thinking about them with respect to myself because it is too easy to put down other people and the teams they value. I'd much rather make a positive statement about any team - I hope that is obvious in recent posts. Where we disagree I hope that I've been polite in response because I have no dislike of you or ill will towards you.
I wasn't directing my comments at you either, my comments were basically directed at tuapaka1.
So it's clear
I don't claim that all dislike or criticism of the Crusaders is irrational, but tuapaka1 previous posts have been just as inflammatory and critical of the Crusaders and of me specifically. They/I can do no right is my experience with his posts.
I felt attacked and that the guy feels his knowledge is vastly superior to mine, which may be the case, so I asked him to qualify his claim the Crusaders are one dimensional (They were a couple of years ago quite predictable for a short while) and that Scott Robertson was overrated. Both could be true, but I'd expect some evidence to go with that.
This is about the 3rd or 4th time he has made these type of comments. I am tired of it. I come here for fun and enjoyment. I love Rugby, and I love discussions. I don't expect to agree in every instance, and in most instances, I am simply putting forward my view. l am open to being shown a different point of view, but like anyone I'd expect some justification.
In short I felt his comments were uncalled for and overly aggressive, and I didn't take too kindly to them.
I appreciate you taking the time to clarify your perspective, we are good, I just didn't feel his comments were required to be put forward the way they were.
