How did you find Hockeytraderumors.com?

How did everyone find this great site? I found it by looking for some scoops on any trade deadline news a couple years ago, I used my search engine for oddly enough hockey trade rumors, and guess what came up? hockeytraderumors.com, and i’ve been a member ever since. Funny tho, thats also the way i became a member of the Abba fan club! That Abba! You here one song and you’re hooked!

    To be fair, titans – you should not question the sexuality of others when you have a “pink” (sorry, “magenta”) icon.

    I’m sorry to see you leave. You had some great lines – very funny. We need more good natured folks here. Unfortunatlely, there are some pretty nasty folks at this site (the minority) that really like to hit below the belt – very boring stuff.

    Hey, stick around and post an article or 2 before you retire. You might change your mind. You may have ended up just one ‘L’ short of greatness. Who knows?

    Sorry to hear you’re moving on. Those personal slams can get out of control. You did post some pretty funny lines – most of it was above board. A couple were rippers. I liked your reference to “IRREGARDLESS.” Hee hee!! I hear people say that every freakin day.

    You’re probably a pretty decent writer – creative. Good luck.

    I did a google search for “no brained jackass” and all of these postings from Leaf Expert came up. So I just had to join in the bashing.

    I had a Duster like that…only I was the guy with the hat and the long hair giving the speech about Washington being a stoner..

    Let’s get something straight regarding what happened between me and “scintilating” (sic).

    I think it’s pretty crass that this yo-yo shows up out of nowhere, does no “hockey-realted” postings at all, but immediately latches onto my posts (JUST my posts) and starts yanking my chain. And, when I yank back, he runs away. What you don’t know about is the private messages he was sending me that got VERY personal.

    None of us really knows who the other one is. I could be a 16 year old Ethiopian girl. If I really wanted to be cool, I would have said I was a “graphic artist from Pennsylvania”, not a 40-something from Colorado.

    As long as we all desire interaction of some kind, love hockey, and can “agree to disagree”, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? Relative anonymity is both the blessing and the curse of the Internet. People will say s^%t on here they wouldn’t DARE say to someone’s face.

    He’ll just change his screen name (to one that’s spelled correctly) and be back. For his sake, I hope he finds an easier target.

    Yes, I post a lot of comments. I’ve also had five submissions published in two months.

    Yes, I can be a smart-a#$, weird, and off-topic. “Let he who is without blame cast the first stone”.

    I’m new to this, and I’m coming into it very late in life (I had to ask my kids what “lol” meant). If I make any etiquette mistakes, they are not intentional, and I apologize for them.

    I have, however, seen a lot of people hit a lot lower and a lot harder below the belt than I did. And I am not the one that chose to take it from the classroom to the schoolyard – but I have never backed down from a fight in my life, and I’m not about to start now.

    I’ve seen comments from people I have had less-than-positive interactions with bemoaning the fact that this individual has decided to “move on”. Actually, I’m one of them myself. He could have been a creative force, had he not decided to start his time on here in the manner that he did.

    As I have said in private messages to people, if I say or do anything to genuinely offend you, rest assured it is inadvertent.

    However, also remember what my granny said – “The truth only hurts when it is supposed to”.

    If anyone would like to see me “move on”, please feel free to express your opinion. If you have constructive criticism you can offer without being personal, feel free to offer it, and I will do my best to comply.

    And yes, maybe bender and I got a little personal with him, but I thank my CTP brother for watching my back.

    If you made it all the way through this post, you get a prize…..tba.

    In closing – I love you guys (and girls, and whatever else you may or may not be). Thanks for giving me a forum to be myself once in awhile.

    CTP Sergeant-At-Arms,

    Defenestrate
