Lets Talk...about the stupidity of Lets Talk Threads

Postby ItsHandsomeDave » Sun Oct 27, 2019 1:22 am

Can we cut this crap out? I have no idea where this nonsense comes from. If you are doing this you are low test and got lost on the way to Reddit.

Just use the players name in the subject title and be done with it. Christ

So is the wording of the title or player specific posts that you find so objectionable?

If it's the latter and your not interested in a player's dynasty outlook and value, just don't click on it and move on. I don't really care about "your best team with the worst record" or anyone's struggles with their survival picks or what goes on in the HOF league. I just don't bother to click on it and move on.

But if it's the former, is it really that big of a deal? Would it be okay if they just dropped the "Let's talk..." from the title? Would that make it okay then?

I think there's a good chance that this thread gets locked or moved or both. :lol:

I would agree that it's tiring. All titles look the same and it doesn't add anything to the topic (for me).

But whatever. It's a copy-cat society and people will just copy whatever they see, so I get it.

BTW, this isn't a thread about a player and doesn't relate to football, but since it's about the dynasty league discussion topics, I'll let it linger for a bit before I lock it.

I too find it annoying as if there's a thread about a player or subject, we are talking about it.

I felt it was a bit shallow to make a post to complain about it though, kind of like Peter Griffin with his news segments called What Grinds My Gears.

It's the internet. You have to learn to ignore it and move on.

The off-topic forum can always use more threads. 8-)

I never do the “u mad bro” type of post, but I honestly can’t fathom a life in which the word choice of a DLF thread bothered me. I’m sure there’s something just as dumb that I worry about, but drawing a blank right now.

Who cares?
It's no different than legit just naming the thread title something else about that player.

What I hate is when someone writes a player's name and doesn't even capitalize his last one. Eli manning. Philip rivers.

Also, it's "Let's".

This is turning into a Grinds My Gears thread. Sweet.

My pet peeve is when people post only one name of a player.

"Should I trade Thomas for Williams and a second?"

oh THERE we go!

You know what really grinds my gears? When people start a topic asking to see other user's teams/rosters or something, but really it's only a reason to humble brag about their own team.

Why is in the off topic? No one comes here. And, yes, I realize the irony of my post.
