to be a platform to personally ridicule someone for expressing an opinion different from their own. Shouldn't it be friendly discussion and lively banter instead of a TD contest?

There’s no doubt that in recent years as the number of posters has grown, the content on this board has become exponentially more inane and less interesting to me. There seems to be an inverse proportion between the a user’s post count and the worthwhile substance of their posts. In other words there are many posters who post 40-50 times a day and add virtually nothing worthy of spending the time to read any of it. Lots of guys who think they are hilariously funny, but their shtick got old and ignore-worthy long, long before they reached the 80,000 post count.
And you’re right, divergent opinions draw personal criticism as often as any substantive rebuttal. This may be due to the fact that we have many coots (and others perhaps) pretending to be Clemson fans but are actually here to foment strife.

I wish the mods would add an Ignore User button, or something like that.
It seems like it would be a very simple feature to add, and would solve the problem that you are bringing up.
Then the good posters could avoid being run off by the mouthy ones.

Tigernet has a lot of really great banter and I think for the most part it's more Clemson focused and also more neutral than not , but there are those among the crowd who'll always look to throw stones and bark out ideologies to the tune of " Fight me Bro ! " .

There are many long time posters that rarely post. Someone who has posted 40,000 times in the last 5-10 years is better described as a prolific poster without many other interests or hobbies imo.
When I first started lurking in the late 90's the board was obviously cliquish and remains so to this day. The Scout board was the same but more civil.

But then again, I really don't mind giving their likes the whatfor, then proceeding. Most TNetters, including many of our lurking-type of visitors are good people, and I never ceased to be amazed with the sports' knowledge by many members. The site does an excellent job with its reporting, all of which make it well-worth my membership fees annually.

I tend to skip over the motor-mouthing and simply enjoy the posts. If they tend toward the obnoxious, then just as simply, I log out and go on to other business.
