Yes, but people aren't offering dissenting opinions about the pants, i.e., "I think the new pants look better than the other ones". . . instead, the dissent being expressed is merely to communicate distaste that people are discussing not liking the pants stripe. This thread is no longer a debate about the aesthetic change of the pants, but rather, it has turned into a debate about whether it is okay to have a debate about pants. Very meta.

Dissent on the point at hand, yes, fine. But why bother going into the thread just to tell people that discussing this issue is stupid and trivial? That is different. Better, and more civil, to just ignore the thread altogether, no?

FoulTerritory said it well. I don't mind if you don't dislike the change. I don't even mind if you think it's silly for others to care about the change. But don't come in here and tell me I shouldn't be discussing it, as if that somehow makes me a bad fan.

No...this whole crap started when there were those of us that said we didn't notice the change, because, well how could we not have noticed, said the change didn't bother us, and it has descended from there. If you want to bitch about Sox marketing, there is already a thread about just that here. Maybe it's better to discuss that there because a LOT of this discussion is about Sox marketing. So I'm closing this thread. You want to talk about it, bring it up there.
