A Note on the Negativity

Good evening everyone,

It's been tough being a Chiefs fan this season since 2007. Any time a team is losing, and losing badly like the Chiefs have, you're going to have more negative comments than positive comments.

And that's perfectly okay. People are frustrated. I'm frustrated. Negativity isn't necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it's been warranted recently.

Negativity becomes a bad thing when it isn't followed by anything constructive to say. "Haley is a dumbass" following by nothing adds zip to the conversation. Zero. Zilch.

That comment may fly during the 3,500 comments on game day (for the record, I hate it even then) but it doesn't fly during the week in a 30 comment thread by one of our contributors who busted their ass writing a good post.

This is just a short reminder to Stop. Breathe. Think. And then Post. Are you really adding anything to the conversation with your comment? Or are you just venting and hoping to bait a few people into some attention-getting comments?

If you can't be positive, then constructively criticize. If you can't constructively criticize, well then, you're counting down the hours until you're not able to post on Arrowhead Pride anymore.

It really is that easy people.

Plus, I've gotten a taste of just how much fun it is to ban people (We've banned less than 35 users in over three years which is an extremely high degree of leniency IMO) and with nearly 20,000 visits a day, I simply cannot and do not have the patience to deal with some needy jackass who can't control their emotions.

We cool?
