Mods,

I'm assuming a "LOL Lakers" thread is okay after Kobe gets swept today?

Re: SE FAQ and QQ'ingblog

Can't wait till D12 goes to LA and they win 3 straight ships with Kobe averaging 20ppg on like 35% shooting for the playoffs and the forum explodes. Goddamn I'm going to enjoy that.

Yeah, I agree. We collectively as mods need to start actually enforcing the FAQ as it's obviously been a mistake to allow so much name calling, trolling etc.

I'm going to start by trying to improve my posting (which mostly means not mocking Jetto constantly - I admit it's been bad form on my part (though I did get at least a few laughs and there's a reasonably large group that doesn't think having a forum mascot is cute or funny), not engaging obvious troll attempts directed at me and better and more consistently enforcing the FAQ. I made a good start by banning some new troll account that had twice made Epi fat jokes yesterday.

This does mean temp bans for what I consider to be trolling, ala the "what Bynum did wasn't intentional or that bad" posts yesterday, or some of Thayer's Kobe stuff or Epi's Labron stuff. Will give warnings if appropriate, but if I have to consistently warn an individual poster several times over the course of a week or whatever, the warnings will stop and we go straight to whatever temp ban period it is.

i don't think that guys troll was awful anyway, was pretty funny considerin how many ppl fell for it.
The fact that you think it's funny etc is why so many people wonder why you're still around. You can srsbznz me all you want, but the forum isn't the personal playground for people to create fake arguments and entertain themselves by screwing with others. It's hard enough to correctly interpret text - making it confusing is detrimental to the dialogue that most here are looking for.

Honestly, if you posted more like you do in Skype (at least as I remember it) you'd do fine, as there you seem to engage in more normal conversation without the overt Manning/Labron type trolling, or the absurd casualfan "Game 4 is the Mavs Game 7" trolling.

Re: Kobe : What exactly do I say that's trolling? I understand that it gets the apologists mad, but that's just their irrationality, it's not like I say it intentionally to piss people off, I say it to express my opinion. Also, I never say untrue stuff. People said I was trolling for Gasol being mentally out of the playoffs because Kobe tattled on him and it's affected the team chemistry. How is that trolling? If you watched the games it was obvious something was wrong and Pau never even looked Kobe's way with the ball. Bynum even said there were trust issues, etc. Hope Pau is traded for Amare one ****ing time

Re: Mr. Preggers, he does troll and seem to say made up/illogical things simply to get people mad. I don't think it's banworthy unless he keeps it up with his recent extremity, but he could use a good spanking from his mother.

Right. A better post is: "Asik is a historically elite defender based on a tiny sample of RAPM, which admittedly doesn't mean much, but it does suggest he's more likely to be a good defender than bad."

Mr. Preggers is not cool imo, fwiw.

And you doth protest too much on the Kobe stuff.

No one debated the Gasol stuff - everyone under the sun was commenting on how poorly Pau played from Game 1 vs. the Hornets onward.

Oh, cmon. People call me fat all the time, especially Joshua. FWIW I'm sure I can find multiple tuq posts making fun of people for being either short or fat, he's commented on my fatness multiple times.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

That's fine. If it bothers you, say so. Epi's asked that it not happen, it's obv name calling, so I'm gonna enforce it. I'm not gonna debate every past post that has been made and let slide that was a FAQ violation. I'm just saying from here on out I'm gonna do a better job of enforcing it. It seems to me that a big part of our current issues are due to us (the mods) doing a poor/inconsistent job of enforcing the few rules we do have, and that's caused any banning of any type to be a huge drama/debate.
