My sincere question to you is what does your negative only posting do for our program?
This question is only for the people that pretty much only post negative posts and then say that they just aren't going to be positive until all of our goals are met.
Here is a tweet from Jim Baxter of SC Varsity. This guy has his pulse on recruiting in SC as much as anyone else in the state.

These Gamecock fans keep blasting Clowney on the talk shows and they are going to run off potential 4 and 5 star studs. These kids talk.
Look, I know that message board postings aren't the most important factor in the success of a program. I know it isn't even in the top 100. But there is definitely the potential for it to have an impact on a recruit, parent, or player.
So I just don't get why some of you that are the hardest on our players and coaches have seemingly no regard for if it is helping or hurting the program. But maybe I am missing something so I wanted to get your perspective.
We have plenty of posters like flameout, Cover 2, and many others who are critical AT TIMES, but they are also still grateful for the positive things they see from our coaches and players.
So what is the rationale or reasoning for those of you that simply don't post unless it is negative and you just say "I will post something positive when we win the SEC?" Do you think that helps the program?
Our secondary still looks like poop.
