Default I'm calling yinz out

At least I'm calling all of yinz who HAVE NOT DONATED to this fine and excellent site.

I just did so why don't you?

I know the economy sucks but you can afford a few bucks. So man up and be a true Steeler fan and donate.

If you don't donate then you are nothing more than Cleveland Clown, a Queen City Bungle or a wretched Cheatriot.

Cry me a river.

This is NOT a free site.

It costs money to maintain and the people who are doing it are going through economic times just like everyone else. It's not like anyone has to donate thousands of dollars I'm sure just a single dollar would be appreciated.

If I were losing my job and house I would not be hanging around here or paying for Internet access.

Seriously..

It's unfathomable, almost psychotic you can say something like that to a fellow Steeler fan, and a fellow human being. wow, just wow. It is a free site, that is why it is called, donating. If it wasn't free you would have to pay a membership fee.

WOW.

I don't think mesa was trying to insult or demean anyone with his post - he was simply doing what several other members, including me, here have done in the past - asking for donations to help keep the site running and updated.

No one has ever asked for a King's ransom, so chill out! I realize the economic times have taken its toll on just about everyone, but on the other hand - why should a handful of people, including me, continue to donate every year to keep the site going so that everyone else can reap the benefits? It's simply not fair.

Whether it's a dollar, $5, $10, $20 - whatever - it goes to keeping this site operating and updated and is very much appreciated.

really,you see nothing wrong with telling people basically that they are nothing if they dont "donate" to this site like they did.........and seriously,you see nothing wrong with what mesa said to me about "cry me a river"....thats a good way to talk to another steelers fan and another person,thats ok with you,to degrade someone who lost thier job and thier home and doesnt have the income enough to give money away like on here,i wish i had the extra money to be willy,nilly with it like this-oh the good old days,but nowadays i have to count every penny and cant afford to give money to here,does that mean i should stop being on here,cause after this post it has made me want to leave here,if that is how other steeler fans are going to treat me,and then can be excused for it,like you have done for them......i get it,lifers stick up for each other,but if you cant rip on them even if they are wrong with what they said,then i guess i have to say i'm ashamed to be linked with people that think its ok to be this mean to another person.......you dont think he ment to insult,that's sad,if you really think that.......theres a nice way to say that and a bad way and he chose the bad way......mesa was very insulting the way he asked,its the saying-its not what you say,its HOW you say it.......and then to say what he said to me,was uncalled for and to me mesa should be banned for saying it...as i don't think thats the steelers fan that any one should be,we are a family of the steelers and to turn on a fellow steeler fan like that,to me has no place on here

I think you are taking this way too personally, LLF. mesa had no clue about your financial situation when he made the post and knowing mesa as I do, I know that the last sentence of his post was made in sarcasm (damn - where is that sarcasm smiley when you need it? ) I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time in your personal life, but most people have hit a bump in the road at sometime during their lives, be it financially, medically, losing a job, a loved one, etc. You aren't alone.

If you don't wish to donate or can't donate, that's fine - no problem! I just find it terribly unfair that there are so many people who have been here for quite a while and haven't donated one single penny to help keep this site running for their enjoyment as well as everyone else's. Does that mean they aren't welcome here? No - that's NOT what I am saying. But - when someone who refuses to donate takes an unjustified shot at another member who has donated and is basically paying to be ridiculed and insulted, I'm going to call it out every time because it just isn't right.

mesa did absolutely NOTHING to be banned for. We'll just have to agree to disagree here.
