I'm 20 and I would venture to say I will probably deactivate my twitter account within the next 5 years. Thanks for your input.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

This has become evident to me as this conversation has progressed. +1

Comment 17 Nov 2014

I can see what you mean. The reason I included that was to discourage potentially overly harsh judgments about Erick Smith just based on 1 tweet. I was hesitant to make this a forum thread in the first place but nevertheless it appears I may have stumbled into the pitfall of assumptions myself to some degree.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

All very good points and very likely correct about what he is reacting to. But I would say there are many better ways to go about this. +1

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Just checked and I follow exactly 3 current players (none of which are Erick Smith) and 0 HS prospects on twitter. I didn't do either thing you said in #2, the extent of what I did was post the tweet and say it is far from a good look.

edit: I will grant that I took it out of context when I said "small thing" refers to the DV incident in a comment. That I will say was a mistake.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

It's one thing to support a friend but characterizing domestic violence as a "small thing" is not the way to go about it.

EDIT: posting a message that could possibly be seen as characterizing DV in this way does not look good.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

This is certainly possible and likely and I didn't say it wasn't. But I don't think it looks good.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Point taken, but that's what you're inferring. Though I would certainly hope and expect you are vastly more likely to be correct. I still say it doesn't look good overall right now.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Not sure what point you're trying to make, but I've never tweeted anything but criticism at or about perpetrators of "alleged" or sentenced domestic violence.

Comment 17 Nov 2014

I could easily see that being the intent, but there has to be a better way to go about it.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

I tend to see it both ways, but one thing is certain: he won't be saying it much longer! Unless he goes to the MAC of course
