Careful, he may take legal action against you and the site. a2_wink.gif

I know it's a bit of a joke to many of you, but c'mon, the kid is (so he says) 12, and if you don't remember what you (everyone) were like at 12, then that just shows how unqualified you are to be the big bad adult so many of you have chosen to be.

 

The kid's screwed up (apparently), but he's 12.

 

I'm disappointed in the behavior many of you have displayed (and just because I quoted you, GFB, doesn't mean I'm speaking specifically to you about any or all of this).

 

Lectures about how he should use it as a wake-up call are fine, but bullying and just general mean spiritedness is not becoming. At the end of the day, everyone who joins this site (that isn't a spammer :D) is a fellow golfer, and to borrow a line from The Greatest Game Ever Played, I think that we should all show people "the respect a gentleman gives as a matter of course." The tolerance levels for acceptable behavior tighten with younger people, they don't loosen and allow for more jackassery.

 

I sentence everyone here to a minute of self reflection. :P

I've reflected, and feel that my comments were not only warranted, but dignified, and undeniably brilliant.

They ought to kick his dad out of the club for allowing him to behave like that. Is his name Spaulding?

I helicoptered my fair share of clubs at 12. I'm embarrassed of the way I used to act on the golf course. Fortunately, I got over that. I certainly hope he can do the same. This game is so much more enjoyable when you're not angry all the time.

And it wasn't an apology, it was an apoligy, IIRC.

Being a crusty curmudgeon can have its entertainment value, but this goes way beyond being amusingly cranky.  Making abusive posts like this would not be acceptable if the intended target was an adult but it is definitely not OK when the target of your contempt is 12 years old.  If you were as clever as you seem to think you are, you would have understood that name-calling and bullying are the epitome of immature, offensive, and "brat-like" conduct. 

 

Shorty, you owe the OP an apology.

There is no "hate". Just people who are offended by your nerve and some others who haven't actually read the entire thread and think you are a poor young lad who "threw a club", when  in fact you are a serial offender who refused to get the message, blames others and takes the moral high ground and insults those who are trying to protect their club. You were warned. You ignored the warnings.

You haven't even admitted you were wrong! At no stage is there anything that even comes close to a sincere resolution to change your behaviour. All we get is "poor me".

Others have to change, but you won't.

I expected the bleeding hearts to step up here, read a few negative posts and chime in.

That is why my knickers are in a knot.

The moment I read something that indicates that you are apologetic and genuine, I will apologise. Not before.

Own your behaviour and your actions. 

You've been told that a million times.

We all have.

It wasn't really constructive, and offered no insightful comments on how the OP can improve. I fail to see why it "needed to be said".

Sometimes putting someone in their place is constructive.

He didn't even put the kid in his place...He just called him names. Not constructive at all, nor does it contribute to the thread other than for Shorty to feel better that he called a 12 year old some names.

 

Shorty's latest post sums things up much better and to the point.

Not when he's 12 years old.  Get real.  Kids screw up.  You screw up.  Did you ever get a second chance.  Give the kid a break.  He's not even here to defend himself any more, so back off.

Stating he's an "immature and offensive brat" is hardly name calling.

I's a statement of fact.
