I have always been in the camp that views it as extreme. I think it all comes in the context in if what they say comes off as aggressive. For instance, you are saying everything in the right context and it doesn’t come off that way. And you have to remember, for the last year or so the sunshine pumpers have been under a lot of fire as well.
Personally a good example is AU64. It could be safe to say some posters are head hunting him. He does say the things you are saying, but never to anyone specific. Always to a mass so no one is singled out. Then you have posters responding to him, singling him out. There is one poster in particular who responds to every single post of his to belittle him. It just doesn’t seem right in my eyes. We are all on the Auburn team. It just all boils down to respect I think.
