    I think it's something called a web crawler or spider that causes there to look like there are so many guests. If you google that term I think you'll have your answer.

      Most of them are likely terrified Seattle fans hoping against all hopes that half our starting lineup is injured .. My heart goes out to them ..

        I have decided it is no longer worth being a member of this forum. I am a Rams fan until the day I die. But there are way too many fans here who feel it an absolute imperative to trash their own team. Trash their own players. And trash any fan who tries to stay positive and support his team through thick and thin, winning and losing. It is not even possible to have a single solitary thread on this whole forum dedicated to being and staying positive without trashers coming in to fling crap. I am not a one man army, but here, in a forum supposed for Rams fans I pretty much stand alone. So I am out of here. I can watch my team, support my team, and even discuss my team with others, without having to put up with the self hate, and team hate spewing from so called fans here.

        I can't find any way to deactivate or delete my profile so I will have to ask the mods to do it for me. You may now go back to trashing your own team without having me to ruin your hate fest.

        Decorum on the Forum
        by NJ Ramsfan1
        When I joined this forum a year ago, I anticipated talking with a lot of knowledgable fellow Rams fans and have not been disappointed. The conversations have been good ones and many times thought provoking. But the one peeve I have is that there are a few on board who seem to delight in arguing even the most benign observations, offer sarcastic responses or generally try to draw the ire of the poster. I think it's unnecessary and detracts from the Forum.

        I'm certainly not talking about challenging someone's opinion- which is the way we generate discussion, offer viewpoints and talk over an issue. It's the picking apart of every word a person says and the intolerance shown by some in making their own point on an issue. Some of those who use the buzz phrases about "having patience", "being positive", "showing your loyalty", etc. also seem to feel that the best way to get their message across is to try to make the other person feel like an idiot.

        Everyone on this forum has varying degrees of knowledge about the Rams- some more than others, depending on age, experience, etc. No one needs to be beaten over the head with an "I have more knowledge than you" post in tone, if not actual words.

        I am one of many on the board whose opinions are occassionally rejected- which is fine if the criticisms are fair. I have occassionally used frustration in responding to someone I thought missed the boat completely- which is wrong. I include myself when I say that a better overall effort must be made to respond in kind to posts we don't necessarily agree with.

        I think the losing has gotten to many of us.

        The Fans DO Have a Say: Help Study Ourselves (HELP!...please)
        by JM7
        Hey everyone, I am currently working on a Discourse Community Ethnography for my critical writing class. In a nutshell, a discourse community is any group of people that have a set of goal and use communication to reach those goals. The goal of the assignment is to study a discourse community and then write a short case study to that community. Naturally I selected the Clan for my study. All of my research is based on the work of linguists John Swales, Ann Johns, and Elizabeth Wardle. For part of my research I need the input of members of the community, so If you could, can you take the time to respond to the following questions? Feel free to add any information about ClanRam you would like to share. Thanks in advance!

        1. What goals do you have as an individual in this community and for the community as a whole?

        2. Can you describe the lexis (the way we speak, any specific terms, ect) that we use?

        3. What mechanisms of communication do you use to contact other members?

        4. Does the community utilize and posses one or more genres of writing? Which ones?

        5. Does the community have a reasonable ratio of novices and experts contributing to the community?

        6. What are the most memorable conflicts within the community? How were they solved?

        7. What are your favorite memories as a member of the community?

        8. Have you ever felt that your views or values have been in conflict with the community?

        Time to join in
        by Jimmyrid
        Well, I thought it was time for me to start adding to this great forum. My name is John and I am from Aberdeen in Scotland. I have been a Rams fan since the mid 80's. Like many of you here I have lived through good times and bad times. It's not easy being a Rams fan in the UK as getting good coverage is difficult to find, however having observed for a short time the discussions that go on here all I can say is that I am impressed at how good this forum is. All the stuff recently to do with the draft has been excellent, the coverage was outstanding and the people doing it know so much more than I do. I'm looking frward to the coming season and can't wait to see the Rams on tv when possible. I will try and post when I can and I look forward to discussing the upcoming season with all you great Rams fans.:up:

        The Post-Dispatch's "Ram Talk" Forum Represents the Worst of Rams "Fans"
        by AvengerRam_old
        Like many of you, I venture over to the PD site on a fairly regular basis for Rams news. Like some of you, I occasionally make the mistake of opening a thread or two on the "Rams Talk" forum. Good Lord... those people are more full of crap than a broken porta-potty at a chili cookoff during a dysentery outbreak. The majority of them have no business calling themselves Rams fans at all. I guess the best use of that forum is to show what real non-fans are like. Sure, we have our spats around here...
