Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

solring - Yeah, I'm kind of not sure either. The guy isn't a winner although he's really really trying apparently. And he isn't really helping anyone that I can see...except I guess to show a general level of how much effort can be put in to still not be a winner.

Other thoughts on the thread? Accepting input from the community here. Lock it up? Are there fans who enjoy it? Anyone who likes it for more than just the entertainment value?

It's not really doing much harm I guess and obviously pre-dates to way before I came in as a mod. But "not doing any harm" probably isn't the standard we want for a thread in here, right?

I think it should be locked as well as that tennis thread. Theyre both break-even at very best over a good enough sample size and its not like theres any good discussion in either thread.

Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

Imo those threads are fine. I just don't read them.

The threads which are bad are the ones like that guy who went crazy because he had $1500 on PKR sportsbook, got helped out and then decided to tell everyone they were wrong.

Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

Microbob,

This post is to let you and everyone else know that I am boycotting this forum as long as you remain mod. Your whimsical and inconsistent censorship practices are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated by me any longer. Equally unacceptable is what you let slide. It is one thing to over mod or under mod. I have been members of forums that had both of these problems, and it is not ideal but once you figure out what is and not acceptable you live with it. But inconsistent, selective modding is the worst, and completely unacceptable.

Here is a short list of your transgressions (that I am aware of).


1. You allowed a regular poster to purposefully give bad picks to another member who is on tilt, and then laugh at said poster when they lost a lot of $$, without any repercussion.
2. You then let the duped party threaten the life of said poster repeatedly over and over again. I have not gone through the forum rules extensively, but I am pretty sure you are not allowed to threaten the life of other people, and yet you allowed it to happen over and over and over.
3. You allowed a regular poster to wish death and disfigurement to the infant children of other posters, with the only repercussion being to hide the evidence by deleting the post.
4. You allowed the same regular member to post malicious fake personal information on other posters, again with the only repercussion being to hide the evidence by deleting the post.
5. You allow a troll (EarlyCurley) to repeatedly past post picks and give extensive past-post analysis, and then when everyone tells him to stop and he refuses to do so, and as a result he is berated by pretty much everyone, including well respected regular posters, you admonish the respected posters and give them infractions but do nothing to censor EarlyCurley.
6. You allow former regular posters, most notably B00T, to be pretty much 100% venomous trolls. Seriously, go through B00T's recent post history. Whatever he once was to this forum he no longer is, and every post is pretty much calling someone (often me) an idiot. And this is completely ok with you. You pretty much allow Iowa to do the same thing, although he balances his range with useful posts, unlike B00T.

And then on the flip side:

1. You gave me an infraction for saying I liked Skip Bayless. Yes, that was not a joke, he really gave me an infraction.
2. You banned me for 3 days for "bumping." Yes, I bumped a post that was still on the front page and got a 3 day ban for this.

Really? Bumping a thread that is still on the first page is a bannable offense? But wishing death to infant children, saying you are going to kill other members, and repeatedly calling people idiots over and over and over again is ok?

Even if you argue that you were not banning me for the bump itself, but for the totality of my behavior (which is all fun and lighthearted), you are still going to argue the totality of my behavior is worse than wishing people death, flagrantly repeatedly violating one of the few rules of this forum (past posting), and calling people idiots?

And then you tell me if I cannot get on page with your program that I should get lost? Well, I am sorry, your program is not acceptable, so I guess you are getting what you wish, so I am getting lost.

LOL. I was going to post this yesterday from my jdock100 account (which I made as a joke a while ago and has like 2 posts total) but apparently I was IP banned so I couldn't write the manifesto from my laptop and I sure as heck wasn't going to write all that from my smart phone so I waited till today.

I am actually a little bit disturbed that you even know I have the jdock100 account or signed into it, cause I only logged in for a few minutes and didn't even make a single post. Are you (or KyleB) e-stalking me?

And if yes and Bob allows this to go you can add this to my list.

Re: January-March *Angry and Bitter People* Chatter Thread

jdock - Cool. Thanks for making this easy. Lots of issues and complaints involving you and your presence in this forum and it was causing a lot of problems. So with that issues out of the way and you not coming back to the forum again that really really helps things out.

You will be banned if you make another post in this forum (without previously discussing with me to see if I am willing to lift the boycott).

I'm not even sure about a couple of the issues you are talking about but it doesn't really matter. You are being odd and unreasonable.

Also, I didn't IP ban you when I gave you a 2-day temp-ban. That has to be specially requested to Mat. So basically, if you tried to post from that account and were not able to I'm guessing it was your own issue like forgetting the password or something. I didn't do it...because I technically am not able to.

TomG,

Obv not, but he doesn`t have any awareness. He is correct tho, micros bias has been pretty lol bad. He removed a post where i called riglsey a female body part, when he was being straight emo for like a week.


that pic just keeps on giving.

Everyone - Getting yourself permabanned is not the best way to go about changes, etc.

If you are upset or concerned about previous decisions then go ahead and voice your ideas rationally. Permabannable actions will bring about permabans as I had stated earlier. I would really prefer to not have to do that and hope you consider bringing about more positive changes for the forum.

Thanks for your input. Haven't even looked at the tennis one. Will check it out when I can I guess.

Okay, so mostly the vote is 2-2 (on the first one at least) including these two voices and also wiper and solring.

On the PKR guy. I think there is some entertainment value there. And it can also be helpful for noobs who find themselves in semi-similar situations and asking similar questions, "hmmm, I won $1500 fast. Now I wonder if I can trust the site." And that's on top of the comedy of his response to the advice he received plus him basically red-flagging himself to me for any future discussions he may get involved in.

Obviously the content itself it is not hugely helpful for the vast majority of us but I think it does serve a bit more of a purpose than the threads of losing handicappers throwing their picks out there over and over and over in their own dedicated threads.
