Hey Dean. Long long time!

In spite of our different beliefs, I always liked you on that other forum. I believe you knew that.

Pls don't worry that I will cause any trouble. I come in peace.

I'm an older guy now. I don't like fighting with people that much anymore.

If I lose it and become a raving angry asshole, I would expect and hope that EY would ban me.

Ray, do you think that we're just getting older, or do you think it's some kind of Internet maturity process playing out here? During the 2000 to 2012 era I just was on two different MMA forums and I was in a lot of Internet battles. It seems like all of that eventually went away. I'm not sure if I matured or if it just got old. Now I would rather ignore somebody rather than argue with them. these forums are so much more fun when you're not always arguing with somebody.

I asked that because I've seen other people that I've posted online with for a long time also seemed to change. It's almost like everyone grew older and got tired of arguing so much.

I would agree with that to a large extent. When I was younger it was hard for me to resist getting into squabbles. Some were fun, but most were a waste of time.

I think perhaps as we get older there is less of a tendency to want to get involved in shit-flinging matches and hopefully get into more constructive conversations.

It's almost hard for me to believe you were once a keyboard warrior given how mellow you are now.
