I've noticed a lot of people on this board tend to get annoyed when big names, such as HHH, go on radio shows and say something along the lines of how Net Marks should just keep their mouths shut 'cause they don't know what the hell they're talking about, and they're just being over critical about everything.
I can pretty well assure you from a personal standpoint, and from the standpoint of those whom I've worked with, that they're not talking about Wieners, or even the boys over at 411.
What wrestlers are talking about are those guys who run sites like http://www.randomwrestling.com/ and the many thousands of others like it. Not to mention all those people who plague the WWE, Yahoo, and other easily accessible wrestling chatrooms.
THEY'RE the ones that piss wrestlers off, not you guys (generally)...
Of course, with all the bashing of HHH on here, he probably is getting just a little annoyed at you all... but I would bet that he does actually take what you guys say, and understand where you're all comming from; if he does actually care about the business, that is.
Most Wieners are some of the best fans out there. You enjoy it without going completely Smarky about it, and being all "U GUYZ SEE THE MATCH W HHH AND STEINER THAT SUCKED ASS CAUSE THEY SUCK!" and whatnot...
Just know... as long as your opinions are valid, and if you argue them in a competant mannor... the wrestlers aren't talking about you.
Hell, I'm sure almost all of them read that review book guy over at 411 and take into account what he says when giving their next performance.
At least... from where I sit, and those who are at my level, we all would... for the sake of the product, and for the sake of ourselves.
We respect feedback. We just hate flaming. And unfortinently, 99.9% of the wrestling fans on the 'net do just that.
And yes, I'm a wrestler. By no means anything huge... but I did train at the Hart school for a while, and I've met quite a few workers, and their attitude generally represents what I've said here. Granted, there are a few who automatically dismiss the 'net, but that's mainly 'cause they're not on it themselves.
There was, in fact, one Stampede wrestler who was constantly really hurt by what was said about him on the 'net, but there was really little he could do to change it. It was making him have sleepless nights, probably sending him into a depression, making him wonder if he should even be in the business. He was still a kid going to high school, and he was already known throughout the wrestling internet community as the guy to flame for no real just reason. That, as far as I'm concerend, is really, really low.
Last time I checked this place was respectable about most wrestling polotics. Umm, don't know exactly what ender talking about unless he's in the biz or something but from my own experience here he might be right.
Banned Once! The independant thought alarm went off, knew to much about b*tching.
Could be the hierarchy has something against diarrhea of the keyboard?
In the words of a dear friend of mine "You treat me like B*tch, I treat you like a B*tch, and now do you have anything to say about it, A$$Clown?

Um, well, no. HHH knows absolutely 100% and beyond any shadow of a doubt how much of what is said about him on the 'net is true.
If he is holding everyone and their kitten down, then he hates people for pointing it out. And also because he's the antichrist and mass hatred pretty much comes with the territory.
If on the other hand that which is written about him is poppycock, then he hates you because, regardless of how well supported you think your argument is, he knows the 'facts' you are using are, in fact, also poppycock.
Either way, to paraphrase, you have to learn to accept the fact that HHH doesn't like you. In fact in all probability he hates you.
Except Ringmistress who he doubtless considers a woman of exceptional and unparalleled taste in men

Last semester, my cultural anthropology instructor assigned the class to find and join and Internet community and write about its lingo, norms, members, laws, collective interests, demographics, etc. Guess which online community I wrote about? ;-)
