State of the Subject Line


My fellow Pounders,

We at PtR embrace our eccentricities, bask in our insouciance, relish our halftime (jelly)fish and wallow in our disdain for the excessive use of Bonner. However, to the outside world we probably seem like a bunch of certifiable nutjobs. Lately, we have experienced several kerfuffles within game threads regarding the use of the SUBJECT LINE. I, like many other Pounders, appreciate the aesthetic beauty of a game thread with no subject lines - like a brillian orange sunset over the Rockies, it a sight to behold, yet one rarely seen in the land of SBNation. To the other blogs, WE are the weird ones. In the spirit of true acceptance and for the love of basketball, I suggest we not bludgeon newbies about the head and the face, but instead gently ask them to refrain from offending our delicate sensibilities with the use of the subject line. Except, of course, when posting images and GIFs - those of us with crappy internet connections need to be able to collapse those bad boys, and yes, this holds for all the old farts too.

Most sincerely,

CapHill (One of those old farts)
