As a BA member since aught 2, I just don’t get why people try to generalize based on a few members. It is sad that the older members here even take part in this. I know I would jump on anyone’s case over at BA if they made a general negative comment about this site.



As a member of both sites, you are just kidding yourself if you really think the same "childish bs" doesn’t happen over there.


Any time a member talks down about rb, the moderators usually step in. A thread like this would be cut to pieces for sure.


...so that makes BA a better place? Draconian moderation?


Forum fights are for the ignorant. Any post to encourage said argument should be removed by a moderator. Also, where did I say BA was a better place?

Agreed.

So, uh, why did you come onto RB and post on this thread again? Maybe to encourage argument? Way to argue for your own dismissal.

Come onto ratebeer? I have been here since 05 and just signed up last year. I never felt a reason to post here, but I like to read the beer reviews. I found this link on Beer News and read a post where someone said that people that felt Joey was wrong must be afraid to post their opinion. I posted my opinion, and I felt that he was wrong. I wanted to express my opinion and did not want to cause a BA vs rb argument. If people want to defend the negative actions of a brewery so bad that it should lead to argument, so be it. Not my intention and certainly not my fault.

You mean 25 pages, like this thread.

Calling out someone who hurt your feelings on a bunch of public forums is soooo cool.

Wipe your tears, man up, and get over it!! I don’t understand the need to drag someone’s name through the mud over this.

Just my 2 cents.

I am reply to criticism against my opinion (which has nothing to do with most of the people replying). I have never egged anyone on. Is no one allowed to express their opinions in this forum?

Don’t worry, this one will be locked shortly. BA bashing isn’t usually tolerated.

The first criticism of BA was in the form of bashing the slow server, and that is valid. It has kinda went downhill from there.


Thanks.

Off the phones and email and locking...
