I want to re-post here something I put on a LAX thread after there was much irritation expressed against a poster. To completely mangle the Bible, "It is better to blow out the candle and not know what's there than to curse the light."
To 92 and most other Crossporters, as I have posted before, years ago I found Foley to be a legitimate alternative perspective to many of us who wear purple tinted glasses.
Some time back, perhaps a year or two ago, maybe slightly longer, he ceased having that perspective and instead went out of his way to look for negative things to say about Holy Cross, real or imagined.
I would be hard pressed to say that in any case that he has been factually wrong but clearly his approach to Holy Cross is consistently negative.
I have found his posts to no longer just be a dissenting voice but rather to tear down Holy Cross and do his best to irritate other members here.
If he was posting consistent falsehoods about alma mater, I would suggest that he be banned.
That’s not the case as I see it. And, this is an open forum for people to express their opinions.
The best course of action as I see it, and I have done, is to simply add him to your “ignore” list. The only way you will see his purposeful posts is if someone else quotes him.
This feature works just as well on others who irritate you beyond our UNH friend.
In closing, I wish the old, objective Foley would return. I'd welcome him back with open arms.
It may be difficult for some to accept they have crossed the Rubicon regarding their relevancy or age.
They tend to act out their inability to reverse the inevitable process and thus become the curmudgeon of Crossports.
Obviously we have witnessed by our lurking curmudgeon....”Crossports Envy”. So just take his comments with a grain of salt, or should that be a pound. It provides a perspective that allows reflection regarding the outstanding strength that is Holy Cross.
