Rule #1, if it's about me, @ me, so I can see it. Rule #2, if you heard shit that didn't come from me, then don't believe it 'cause I hate a bitch that posts shit then before you see it she delete it and when you come to her she get to switchin' up like "girl I ain't even really mean it." So when I catch you lackin' don't say shit just prepare yo ass for this beatin' 'cause on sight means on sight, not in no counselor's office having meetings, and if you pull my tracks I'ma break yo face and you really gonna be left bleeding.
So just in case you did think I was exaggerating here…
John writes his father mentioning that he had considered going to Oxford for a Christmas party, but decided to stay in London and keep studying instead. Henry had previously visited Oxford and decided that no son of his would attend such a “School for Licentiousness and Debauchery in the most agravated heights,” plus he already disapproved of the friends John was making in London. In his reply, he says he doesn’t believe John when he says he didn’t go to Cambridge and goes on,
Are you so poor in valuable acquaintance, in Books, in Ideas, as to seek Company which inwardly you disapprove of. It cannot be. Were you under any restraint while your Father was in England? No! you were his Companion his bosom friend. Whence then these retrograde motions immediately after his departure, like a Bird after long confinement fled from her Cage? […] [T]he eyes of your friends & of your Country are upon you, they are in expectation & think themselves in view of a valuable Casket, for your own sake, for theirs & for the sake of posterity disappoint them not by coming up a bundle of Carolina Rushes.
Unintentionally apt bird in a cage metaphor there, Henry. Remember, son, I’m your best friend, and if you keep this up you’ll show everybody that you’re worthless.
Reading this I kept thinking about what a long period of time it would have been dragged out over. I mean think about it, you write your stern, patrician father a letter going “I thought about doing this thing, but then I made the more responsible choice,” and then weeks – months? – later, you get that letter. John’s response is almost heartbreakingly pathetic. He assures his father that he has cut the disapproved-of friends out of his life, and writes,
Yes you have shewn me myself. I was very well satisfied, before your Terrible letter gave the Alarm and call’d me home to Self-examination. You have shewn me such a Man as I almost hate. The more I look into my past Conduct, the more I despise what I was[…] I supplicate Your Pardon, and Pity, how dare I ask to restore your Esteem, Your Unworthy, tho much afflicted and penitent Son, John Laurens

It saddens me that the majority of the fans dislike the B team .I think you guys are great and that there should be more of you guys in videos.
I don’t put much faith in polls or general hate comments, for a multitude of reasons.
That said, “Everyone hates the new people”. Everyone hated Michael, everyone hated Ray, everyone hated Ryan. Then, years go by, and people forget about the times when those folks weren’t around or new people come in not knowing how things were in “the before times”.
So, with time comes familiarity and with familiarity comes acceptance.
Hate me, love me, or whatever…because realisticallyI ain’t goin nowhere.
