I've been *uber* busy the past week so I haven't been able to comment on all things SBNation (which means I had better digestion all week).
So I decided to go to the Packer SBnation site (glutton for punishment, I know) and after an interminable wait for the page to load, I go to the first story and find out that STROHMAN has been banned.
For the uninitiated, Strohman was BY FAR the best commenter in the history of AcmePackingCompany. He was irreverent, incisive and never tailored/sugar-coated his message for anyone. That's the epitome of a great football fan: Brash, opinionated, but tempered with logic and reason.
And he was banned for voicing his disgust with the new SBNation format.
I'm telling you, the morons running Acme (and since they approved by SBNation, they are moronic as well) are taking away the *character* and *passion* out of these blogs. It's become watered down into something so bland and colorless -- I call it the "tofu-ization" of the blog.
And people are going to stop caring pretty soon.
Even I'm starting to realize my fight to elucidate the calamitous changes at Acme feels like "tilting at windmills"
