As predicted. The thread almost falls off the front page and panic sets in. The attention express might just end. A personal attack, a quick round of name calling, an alternate account to make some stuff up, to drag posters back in. You are the lamest of trolls, man. Christ man, get a job, get a life partner, get a friend.....caveat: in real life. SMH.

Is it OK if I just buy a ticket to ride the troll train, Queenie?

Welcome aboard.

We were told only 6 versus bajillions, but it turns out we’ve got a bullet train with a lot of cars.

They are filling fast, but we can add space pretty easily. The internet is infinite.

The belligerent and insipid trolls have spoken. Giant baskets forever!

Or would you have been penalized for your limitations when driving?

OMD , you do realize you are ruining any future threads and honest discussions on this site for thinner baskets?

You may not feel like you're trolling but thats usually how trolls feel.

There is no doubt thinner baskets are a great discussion, but you are ruining the opportunity to have it here...

Along with the rest of you AM basket deniers.

I am for sure penalized for driving limitations versus someone with 400' plus. I'd also be penalized versus a 350' guy who is equally as good with a putter in his hand as I am. I don't usually encounter this type of competition in my MA-40 division. Usually the guy I'm chasing drives 50' farther but wastes strokes within 150' where I'm better at playing cleanly, just like the 35-year-old guy with whom I was enjoying a casual round and wound up tying at a course with a good variety of distances on its holes.

That's thanks to a basket that I believe is fair as it is for almost all of the millions who play the game.

Sorry, everybody, I'll do my part to let this thing die now. I feel confident nobody is going to go around changing all the baskets over the coming decades to something between a Mach-3 and an Innova Mini catcher forcing the best who ever lived to only make 67% from a mere 25 feet. It's an absurd idea.

We toss our projectiles in the putting sequence through the air with our bare hands, like the Grand Prize Game on the Bozo show. Thankfully they're Discs instead of ping pong balls and there are baskets instead of buckets and there is wind and trees that can play a factor too, but you can't make the act of putting like it is in ball golf. Our sport does a fantastic job creating drama outside of 30 feet as it is. The growth proves it.

Goodbye, the thread was fun sometimes.

I wouldn't worry. This is not a novel notion; there have been dozens of threads about smaller baskets before, and will be dozens more to come. Some of which will involve actual discussions.
