Back when I first joined these forums I got into a bit of a spat on one the threads and started to be a bit of a dick. Shoeless called me on it (and maybe neg-repped me) either in the thread or PM, I don't remember and while I didn't much like it at the time I think it was an excellent preemptive strike.
Looking back, I could have gone the abrasive ******* route (because, let's face it, I'm good at it) but I was given the distinct impression that wouldn't fly. Frankly, I'm damn glad I didn't go that route because you learn so much more around here when you show some decorum and mutual respect.
So I would like to thank Shoeless (belatedly) for smartening my ass up, and Commish for standing up for the finer principles of Dobberhockey.
I'd also like to thank Bondon for not giving me goalie advice at any point.
Okay, so maybe nobody likes a cynic, but everybody f**king hates those perky optimists!
... and anyway, I make a damn good cynic.
