sigh. i don't know why i am bothering to explain since tuq just basically did it for me, but i game narrate all the time in the yankees thread. the difference is that often i am trying to be funny, or doing some fun trolling, or both. sometimes i will post what just happened. i don't think posters in the yankees thread hate what i post, but maybe you should ask them?

there is a continuum of content on internet forums/comment sections. SE in general maintains a very good signal:noise ratio (except in NFL gameday threads, those are just a disaster). the mods are trying to keep it that way.

tuq: i will also agree that i don't think jetto is looking for a reaction with his posts, ime

I'm just curious as to what the difference is between game threads and Jetto-like posts. The two are similar, but one takes up much more room.
the difference is that one of those has been quarantined

don't really support htis rule fwiw

Jetto seems very harmless, regardless of whether or not he is a gimmick.

Even when he goes after someone or has a feud it is pretty mild.

All good points.

I'm beginning to think that Jetto just does his "game blogging" in his own manner and it provides a chain reaction, messing up that ratio. I agree with mjw, the problem might lie in that reaction, and we should attempt to curb those types of posts (which might be an encouragement for him to keep posting like he does, if he is indeed a gimmick).

There doesn't need to be a rule, it's not hard to figure out. Jetto posts a TON in SE, which is fine. It happens that many of those posts are casualfan.jpg, which is also fine. A lot of his posts are pretty obviously designed to get a reaction, which is also fairly common. Add it all up and it sucks and he is going to be incrementally banned if he doesn't start sucking less on the whole. The rest of you can come to this thread and ***** about it, which will give you something to do. But enough with the stupid mother ****ing "hurr durr you do it too here's some examples" because it makes you look like a idiot.

I've always thought of this as the whiner's containment thread anyway.

Anyway, Jetto should prob stick to NBA posting. Seems he wasn't even mentioned with ban til he started posting here and PMing people and so forth. I think all his intentions are either completely harmless or playful. Dude just likes to watch sports and comment on the obvious things happening in them. Passionately

I think if Tuq thinks someone sucks they almost always suck, but it's more about his high threshold for suck than him having goat suck radar (sounds like something Karak might have picked up in all those highway rest stops).

Although you dont like KKC so you should definitely continue deferring to Tuq.

Either way, I don't understand why those posts really bother you either. It's not like it's an epidemic of page after page. Where do you draw the line? Is a page full of GREEAAARRRs acceptable but JETTOOOOS not?

This entire thing just smacks of intellectual sports elitism, which is why I find it so bothersome.
GREAAAAARRR is many things, boring is not one of them.

I must have missed the epidemic of bad posting created by jetto's posting style.

All in all, it seems like jetto does a goat job of getting haters mad completely unintentionally, which is great.

Moving the following discussion here so as to not derail the Final Four thread.

How about reconciling the current discussion with your constant need to respond to Jetto in a trollish manner?

what about banning posters that troll and make fun of everything one person says across multiple threads?

The reason I think jetto is awesome is not because of his casual fan perspective, but his complete refusal to acknowledge people trolling him and his posting style.

IMO, gimmick or not, he seems to be a genuinely nice guy that does not provide in depth analysis that some other posters do. If you want to ban him for sucking(which has precedence) then ban him. There is no need to troll him.
