As for the posters (not mods) saying it's okay/what's the big deal, I rarely see you post in any of the threads in this forum, so why would you even bother posting an opinion on this?
When I'm on the main page, I always look at the header thread on this forum to see if there's a new post. When that cluster**** thread is there, it's an annoyance. For those of you who think it's okay, do this. Go to the thread and look at the posts from page 1 to the end. There is not ONE single post relating to the Sharks from anyone except JR. If the forums were set up like they used to be, I wouldn't care. Because I could see the latest hockey post or the latest basketball post whenever I wanted. But now that it's all been combined, I'm subjected to this crap about a team that 1) doesn't play in NY and 2) no one else posts about or cares about. If there were a couple of other posters who legitimately participated in that thread, I would suck it up and not say anything. But that's NOT the case here.
What's almost as annoying as his thread is someone coming into this one and saying it's okay when they hardly post in this forum anyway. Seriously.
