ok, roman

fwiw i never read any of his nba posts in se so his passing knowledge of advanced nba stats didn't have any affect on my opinion. i would still bet large sums of money that he has posted on 2+2 previously under a different account even if he wasn't a well known regular.

the fans always come back and the players can make enough to not go broke in the meantime. showing that they wont be broken will mean the owners will stop trying, both now and in the future, which is more than enough to make up any money they lose. if they allow themselves to break they'll just get raped every single CBA ldo. pretty clear hearing hunter on the bs report that the union is not ******o. fans def come out of this debate as the losers. suck it up imo
"ldo" is a 2+2 specific meme but he was using it correctly within his first month of posting? sure

Actually, I'm nearly 100% sure LDO originated on 2+2 and is largely exclusive to this site.

LDO was coined by Georgia Ave in BBV many years ago. I was one of the first people to reply to the thread saying I thought LDO was stupid and would never catch on as an acronym.

You'll note both urbandictionary entries are written by "BBV4life4lyfe" and "BBVer."

the ldo definition on UD was written by a 2p2er, i know that much. i don't know how prevalent it is, but i've never seen it on any non 2p2 affiliated sites that i post on.

(also its originator was Chump Change, not GA)

Man, mad kudos to TimmayB for avoiding the Archer-style rampage yesterday. Well done. Dye also a very smart dude. Props.

The good news is, as Zeestein so kindly pointed out, I'll be away for a few weeks starting in a little bit, so things will hopefully get back to normal, such as it is.

Quadsas was totally gonna skate til I re-read it and saw that this is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. /CML

There's somebody in the SZ/Jetto troll camp who likes posting in OOTV. I just got them as "Jeeve" and I assume they were Roman as well as he was active and terrible in there during his short tenure on the site. I'd assume TuT.

that combined with his posting style, previous knowledge of posters and oh hey knowledge of advanced nba statistics make it something like 99.99999999% confirmed that debeers was not new to 2+2

Almost as miraculous as Jetto suddenly citing advanced stats when he previously had trouble finding ESPN.com to research the time of the next Lakers game and magically suddenly watching lots of Italian soccer despite only having basic cable.

Zeestein was the only one, and he got himself banned after I specifically asked people playing in the game not to get banned defending Jetto. The other two are just people who had to drop out. Don't sweat it.

pretty sure it's because michael's afraid of being alone with an older man - his mom's boyfriend (his dad??? bug's dad??? i dont remember) is abusive iirc

Goddamn, 22 is old for a cat. Plugged that into a "cat year" calendar and it allegedly equates to 105 human years.

Sorry to hear about that though.

I don't think those kids had a father figure that truly cared about them, so when a stranger does, it's weird. Michael's situation a bit different.
