Idk why the mods are ignoring the advice of a guy who has admitted on several occasions that he was intentionally trolling.

No one attacked you. You said that Simmons was arrogant. Mjw quoted your post and basically said Simmons isn't as arrogant as some posters in the thread. You then took it as an attack upon yourself.

I don't know either. It'd be like the FBI not using Frank Abagnale. Everyone trolls, I don't know why I'm the bad guy because I have admitted to it in the past. I have not trolled in a pretty long time btw.

edit: simmons fans who have actually read the entire big book of basketball: how much is actually about basketball? would calling it the big book of bill simmons make the title more or less accurate?

edit2: and while i may be arrogant, i'm not really self-centered. i think something like less than 1% of my posts are about me and stuff that happens in my life. otoh "sports" blogger bill simmons manages to talk about himself incessantly.
Response to kc. Maybe he called you out a little bit, thought it was more jokingly than anything. btw, the Simmons book had very little personal stories, a lot of different basketball discussion.

tbh i could handle the arrogance and self-centeredness if he was so ****ing wrong all the time.

sorry bro
Calling people names that aren't even mentioned in the discussion. My take on this is basically kc made a half-hearted joke that you took wayyyy too personal, then others jumped in. But taking it way too personal reeks of someone that is extremely egotistic. It's the internet. It's not all about you.

just more of that tz charm. everyone else is mad, not us. everyone else is serious, we're joking. 4-5 us attacking one guy and him defending himself means he's mad/nuts/serious but we're just having a good time bro.

i mean if you guys all keep telling yourselves this in your little circle jerk it has to become true despite all evidence to the contrary.

So you should have gotten a permaban for your posts from the recently completed NFL season, yet if it weren't for this thread there wouldn't be any problems at all.

Hypocritical ultimatum: don't post about your ban in this thread or you will be banned. Three minutes later he has already logged onto a gimmick and made a post. In this thread. That's not entrapment, it's not hypocritical (a word which makes no sense at all in that spot), it's just really stupid.

lol, what a drama queen. This isn't Darfur, it's not Syria, it's not Libya. It's an offtopic sports forum on a poker site. There isn't some huge cover-up of human rights atrocities taking place. You have ATF, you have private contact with the admins and mods, you have PMs. All you're doing is trying to cause trouble.

While I'm still not convinced that closing this thread is the best solution, it will be discussed it in more detail with the others this week. I think this thread serves a necessary purpose of posters airing grievances as well as a lot of OT-type discussion. However, you (TuT) get one more post in this thread forever, and it must be made today. Any more than one post or any post made after today and you will be banned. You are welcome to use this forum for its purpose, which is to discuss sports. There are plenty of others who post constructive criticism but you've gotten ridiculous and are just obviously and deliberately stirring the pot so you are done. Take your issues elsewhere.

As an aside, I have no idea what spawned Cl.ar.k's rule about not bitching about moderation in other threads, but I'd put the odds at about 100% that it was you.

You've gotta be kidding me. The SE mods openly take more **** from poster complaints without banning or warning people than any other forum. They don't squelch criticism at all. Get ****ing over yourself.

Well why do you feel the need to stoop to our level and defend yourself? Just let it go. You can write essays about how you're not self-centered, but that would kinda prove our point, right?

SE mods recruiting mods from other forums to come in and do their dirty work so others don't realize what's going on. Expert play I must admit.


EDIT: I'll address tuq's post here I guess since I can make any more posts:

tuq,

Quote:

Did I say perma? That was my mistake, I just meant temp ban to cool off. I definitely trolled NFL threads.

The ultimatum was bull**** because dozens of posters have been banned and circumvented it before. YOU PERSONALLY allowed SToll to come back like 45 times when he was hurting the forum. Victor is loved by tons of posters and you don't care. You never seem to give a **** what the actual posters of the forum think, other than maybe the few who think you're still funny. You're like the Amarillo Slim of SE. You were a good/funny poster when there were like ten of them and now the only way you can stand out is to flex your mod muscles and ban people.

While you're at it, you should maybe discuss some of things I've been stirring up as I think they're legit concerns that others share. I haven't been stirring the pot just to annoy people. A lot of people enjoy this forum and you personally are a big part of why a lot of people might stop (obv the other mods are to blame too but you way more so).

As with almost anything NBA related I have read from you over the past few years, I think you're wrong as he quoted a post from GeoffRass IIRC.

Sorry you have no friends IRL AND couldn't even be interesting enough to keep around in Skype, but you can always discuss OT things in the other forums if you really need to. You won't need to do so in this thread.

How many posts are there in the TUt mod forum thread? Does Victor have his own thread? Epi? Give us some (but not too much) info.

Can't believe the stuff like this isn't bothering more people. It doesn't matter what happens to me, all of you are at risk if you don't noticing whats going to happen.

He banned Jetto for participating in a hoax that he had no clue about ffs

Politics forum is full blown AIDS and OOT isn't that far off. So you're pointing this out as a reason we shouldn't care that tuq is going on a power hungry rampage banning people?

The irony is that TuT has gotten about fifty miles of rope and yet proceeds to whine about how unfair the moderating is, incessantly.

I want this thread to stay open because user input for the betterment of the forum is valued. However, it's pointless to leave it open if TuT is going to infect it with his constant bitching and ridiculous hyperbole. Compromise for now, he's not allowed to post in it anymore.

I've almost gone back to that recently and was thinking about doing it for June because I miss the OT discussion.
