As a poster who likes some of the touchier subjects on this forum, I have to say that it is understood that sometimes things may get a little heated.
Sometimes things get said that should not.
Sometimes things get taken out of context.
Sometimes two people will never see eye to eye.
But if you truly care about your voice being heard, and want members of this forum to take you seriously at all, you just need to be aware of these things.
If someone is a jerk, call them on it, in a respectful way.
If you are a jerk, apologize and do it properly.
Same goes if you unintentionally offend someone.
No harm ever came from a sincere apology.

PIT and BOS are the only decent teams in the EAST.
