I've been getting very irritated at some of the posts at the Listening Party over the past couple of days. First you have JimOhioLottery(pick 3) thinking he's the Trivisonno of that particular venue, posting things that you would only think someone who was delirious would be posting. Then you have the real Mike Trivisonno spewing about all the imbeciles in the "chat room" and mentions Jim by name. You know one has to be hard up for content for a show on a 50,000 watt station when he wants to stir up the posters on an internet forum. Triv, if you can't do better than that, go home and play poker on the internet.
Along with Jim's posts come unsavory responses from those who want to egg him on. I'm all for first amendment rights, but this come along the lines of "yelling fire in a crowded theatre".
And when these asinine posts get more intense, people like newsnomore, Bizdecision, and others quit posting. Some of these folks are not only my friends, but they also have insights in the business having been there at one time themselves.
Good posts get buried in nonsense, and the attention is given to stupidity.
Feel free to comment but remember this: I have the ability to delete any comment that I feel is inappropiate. First amendment rights do not apply here. I am the dictator of this blog.
Update: The triv quote in question is during the Wednesday program 6:00 hour (hour 4) about 6 minutes into the hour on the podcast.
