    Hate when Smali says something nasty and then adds a smiley to it at the end. As if that makes it all right to say.

    I didn't say it was specific to the internet, but I think on something like an internet forum that kind of thing of thing is definately more excessive than it needs to be. You make a decent point though in 'AWTA' being useful from the point of view of seeing if there is some kind of concensus on an idea from other members (and now that I think about it there's no reason why DWTA can't be used to the same effect). But on the whole I reckon a debate/discussion on something is far better if the focus is solely on the actual ideas someone is trying to express rather than whether or not other people agree/disagree with it.

    But honestly though, none of this matters at all...the post I made yesterday was meant to be frivolous. This is a cricket forum after all...it's not exactly the deepest topic. A light topic = a light treatment.

    Is this CricketWeb's greatest poster in the short history of the forum?

    Ad hominem arguments in CC definitely need banned. If we're going to accept that some variation of "well what do you know, you've never played test cricket" constitutes a counter-point we may as well not have a forum at all.
    There is absolutely no doubt that experience playing cricket (at a high level ideally) is essential in understanding certain points about the game. The discussion about experience in a cricket side the other day is a perfect example of that.

    If you've never experienced what it's like to play with experienced players, how can one possibly have an informed opinion on the topic? All you've got to go by is your arbitrary thoughts on the matter, with nothing backing it up, just what you think might be the case.

    There's nothing stopping someone who has never played the game from rating a certain player higher than another though.

    Perhaps, but in the context of an internet forum the "I'm right about this because I'm more of an authority on the subject" line doesn't have to be false to be worthless. It's only slightly less appropriate than it would be to say that in a staged debate.

    Besides, you could find someone experienced who holds any opinion, if you looked hard enough.

    I have pretty much exhausted that quota agent. The mods have begun to see through it at times ......

    seriously I am tottering on the verge of a ban. I just hope it isn't a 6 month ban for saying nasty things to other members or letting other people use my account to say nasty things
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Good submission. There's no place for this sort of sentiment anywhere.
