"Why stop now," said Marvin, "just when I'm hating it?"

I hate this shit.

So I hereby give notice to all and sundry, that I will be playing all future BBT3 and blogger games with one goal in mind.

Fun. I highly recommend it. (Thanks Drizz, for reminding me!)

Seriously kids, take a big ole dose of chill the fuck out. You're annoying my friends to the point where some of them are abstaining, and that's just not cool. Take your snotty comments, your sarcasm, and your name calling, and shove them right up your ass.

You know, the place where your head is right now.

My Dad was a man of many sayings; my brothers and I find ourselves saying these "Dad-isms" on a daily basis. Onward and upward. A thing of beauty is a joy forever. A million of them. The one I'd like to share with you now is:
Don't shit in your own nest.
or more appropriately:
Don't kill the goose that lays the golden egg.
Al has created a thing of beauty with the BBT series, and I'm sure he's wondering right now why the hell he even bothers. The rise in douche behaviour is even greater than the last time, and we still have 2 months to go. At this rate, the likelihood of a BBT4 will be slim to none.

I beseech you, I implore you, lets all go look up sportsmanship in the dictionary and move on (see - I even made it easy for you). I believe that everyone has something good and unique to bring to the table; please stop proving me wrong.

And on a personal note, I want to apologise if anything I may have said in the table or girlie chat smacks of douche behaviour. That was NEVER my intention. I have had my tilty moments (for which I always feel badly afterward), and I've been told that my particular brand of slightly sarcastic and cynical humour does not always translate well to the typed chat. I adore you all (in varying degrees), and I hate that the thought that I may have unintentionally pissed anyone off or hurt someone's feelings.

So, fuck the points, fuck the prizes, fuck the pressure, fuck the competitiveness, fuck the backbiting and bitchiness. Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to strive to win and play the best game I can. But the reason why I want to play with bloggers is not for the money or the stuff.

It's for the fun.

    I'm never in these events long enough to receive any rude remarks. :-( LOL.

    Amen Sistah!

    It has almost become an uncontrollable beast with a mind of it's own. I don't think I've used the phrase "asshattery" ever before in my life, but that is what is going down.

    Just remember why you play to begin with. It is the same reason that the five "sponsors" continue to run these things, and thank God they do.

    We are looking a gift horse in the mouth - who really needs to climb on in?

    Naw, I'll keep the points, the prizes, and the comeptitivenes... the pressure, backbiting and bitchiness can get right the fuck out though.

    If not, I'll just sit back and enjoy the show. Then again, I don't deal with high school girls every day... I can see how you'd be overloaded when coming home to more of the same. :)

    You come from high school to high school.

    Yup, you have the geeks, sports studs, quiet ones, rebels, trouble makers and everyones friend.

    Can you fit people of our group into these molds?

    Thanks to the hosts who put up with more crap than they should and to you for reminding that we should all be good sports and say "Good Game"

    I don't think I've ever made a rude remark in chats during blogger tourneys, nor have I seen one that I thought was out of control. Having said that, people who astain from the tourneys because of this is silly. In everything in life, there will be people you don't want to deal with who are jerks, assholes, etc... are you gonna run away from every single one of them? Let them rant and if they go too far in the chat box, just report them. Personally though, I believe in free speech.

    Alan, I'm with you, I totally believe in free speech.

    But I also believe in common courtesy and civility too.
