Rebuttancing brian3684 -- An impassionate and educationated response

When I first came across the hurtful, hateful, and knee-jerky attack on the person of myself in the writings of brian3684 here I was quite frankly shocked frankly. I appreciate debate and can accept if someone disagrees with my viewing points but there are some lines you just shouldn't cross. I thought that the author went much too far when he took his attacks beyond simply focusing on my home state of California and my beloved Anaheim Ducks, and he made things personal.

To repeatedly call my writing inaccurate was very hurtful to my personality. And when he said that I am "less-than-elementary" that was a faux pas because I am actually much more than elementary. I also did not appreciate his intimidating threats to wait for me to visit Texas so he can murder me with his cowboy hat.

Really, why can't we just be civil sometimes? It's just sports, after all.

Please join with me in pleading for a return of respectability and honor to online sports discourse, and let brian3684 know how you feel here.
