...where did I say this? I may have, please quote it. All I was doing was addressing the assertion that "well Cl.ar.k and tuq don't like him but everyone else seems to". I wasn't saying that other people want him banned. I was addressing the claim that Jetto is beloved by all but two people.Got it?

Nothing?

FFS I have already said that if most people don't have a problem with Jetto then that's fine, but you Screaming Mimis are tarding up the thread with "well what about this person...and I don't like this guy either, why isn't he banned?" and a bunch of other mind****ing numbingly stupid things, all after I already made the concession that if people like him, that's fine for now.

fwiw, this is triumph36's point. It's not the hilarious, rambling, train of thought, its the people who have to point out how awesome it is.

So take care of that. That's not necessarily Jetto's problem, and it's a pretty huge logical leap to suggest it is.

I also just don't get people who get upset by jetto, but thats my personal preference.
What about these posts? What about Clark trolling Jetto constantly? You seem to just be picking at the low hanging fruit and talking about how mind-numbingly awful the opposition is instead of actually responding to the legitimate arguments.

I caught that. He even called him a "little *****" at one point.

Nope, it wasn't. That was before the discussion began, and I have since redacted that multiple times.

Nice try though, can always count on you to squeeze every last drop out of an argument.

The fact that tuq thinks Jetto is a gimmick just shows how out of touch with the forum he is.

The discussion started because Clark (and Tuq) think his posting sucks. They aren't being the cool kid police. I don't know if banning Jetto is the right option, but I do either wish he'd stop talking, or start actually saying things, or if neither of those two happen that people would stop responding to him. But if people actually like having lengthy discussions about whether ourscoring your opponent over the course of the game is sufficient to win or not, I guess that's their prerogative.

He is so harmless and really this is setting a turrrble precedent. He doesn't attack people and he doesn't derail threads. If people want to argue with him, that's their choice. My normal reaction to a jetto post is nodding and smiling or shaking my head and smiling.
