    Calling other Jazz fans "Apologists"

    Can this crap please end? We are all fans here (I assume). There's no need to snipe at one another in such a way.

    I am a Jazz fan. If that makes me a homer, or an apologist, or whatever, then I'll wear those badges with pride! As we all should!

    This is dumb though. Being called an apologist refers to the type of attitude one takes with the team. Obviously we're all fans. We're obviously all very passionate fans. Some of us are apologists, some of us are cynics, some of us are fair-weather, some of us are in it for the fun, some of us are obsessive compulsives, some of us are high-intensity stress balls, etc. Nothing wrong with calling someone out on their attitude.

    You have to wonder if it's a crew using the tired old troll raid formula for destroying forums. Corral the throught process into a tiny corner with divide and alt conquer, use marginalizing terms as much as possible, disenfranchise glue posters, scare off all new posters, ambiguously blame it on something the mods have changed (rep system).

    It's really not that hard for 4-5 Clutchfans with alts to accomplish.
    I'll make sure it's not an option
