    Depends on the person. Some people resent being called on there attitudes. Some people, like me, accept it for what it is. Just a natural inclination for most peoples. :grrr:

    I think for football forum usage hating or being a hater or whatever is what Mr E. brings when he's talking about his favorite quarterback. All this hanging out at the mall and chewing bubble gum stuff is taking hater way out of what it needs to be or it is just played out and annoying.

    I think being a hater is something you pretty much own up to.
    Calling somebody a hater when it's just because you can not think of anything valid just gets on peoples nerves. That's the hater defense. It doesn't make them mad. I don't think I've ever encountered a poster that was upset at it. It's really just kinda pretty much, I'm trying to be a good team mate here, :ha:
    Above all the "hater defense" is the worst argument ever.
    Just ask this guy...

    For real though, hating on a player is pretty much just riding them and trash talking their game without being able to support a valid argument, at least for long. I suppose there needs to be some gray term for homer that is to the effect of spoonfed love for a player despite pretty much whatever.

    For instance take Reynaldo Hill...if he were to say, I don't know, hijack an airplane... odds are the only thing Gunny is going to worry about is whether he was still going to start...what do you call that? Devoted? Not very good...

    Jock rider? :lol3: That's great...so if somebody just blurts...hater!
    Can you respond and be like: What, jock rider?

    Not that I would but it seems fair...
    Besides, anybody crying "hater" ought to be able to take jock rider?

    Surly.

    Hater, an over used, emotional term...

    It's a strong word that should only be applied to posts that are over the top or irrational. I was called a mcnair hater and basher for simply rating him third among nfl QBs instead of first. I was accused of being an andre woolfolk hater simply because i suggested he wasn't a great draft pick. Well everyone knows that.

    If it is the truth it is not hate. If it is rational it can't really be hate. So i think it is a term that should not be used very often.

    At the same time we wouldn't want to reduce the spitited debate that exists on these boards. This is the best titans forum on the net for a reason and spirited banter, bustings balls as a new yorker might put it is a part of sports debate.

    I agree. But I attempt to dance a fine line between spirited debating and personal insults in this forum. An articulate person can debate most anything without insulting the person they are debating. To resort to insult usually means one lacks the ammo to back their opinion on a subject and trys to compensate for that by focusing on the person they are debating.

    I don't see the need for one poster to call another a "hater" in the context of what has been explained to me here and am considering adding it to what is defined as a personal insult or name-calling.

    I agree, ban the use of it simply because it will force a person to debate instead of having a quick response to a post they didn't like. IMO it is overly strong to call someone a "hater" just because they have an objective opinion even though another might not agree with them.
