I think those who are offensive are just extremely self-involved for personal reasons and need a good psychologist. Then there are so many of the uber fans who aren't really obnoxious or ugly-they're just so darned persistent. I try to avoid them but there's nothing wrong with being an uber as long as one is simply cheerleading and not undermining or unfairly criticizing the competition.
Not that I have EVER had an ugly thought about a specific skater, team....etc. Oh not...not moi! hahahahaha I really do try to keep it under control.
Here's a poll:
How many of you have written a scathing diatribe (about anything on this board) and then erased it? (Hands are raised...)
