Negs

Some of you people on this site are getting ridiculous with the negs, i mean someone can ask a legitimate comment or just state thier opinion in a very repectful manner and alot of you trollers will go neg crazy and write disrespectful comments! The forum on this site was created most likely purely as a platform for respectable debates...Not negativity and belittling people for stating thier opinions. I'm sue i'm probably going to get negged 500 times by the exact people i'm adressing, but i dont care. At the end of the day you people carrying on like you're Skip Bayless on here are no better than any of us on this site, we're all members here because we love the game of basketball...and we can all debate the game respectfully and with some class.

People give positives like crazy for nothing too

You all take the "points" too seriously. They don't mean anything.

Who cares?? This isn't a

Who cares?? This isn't a popularity contest, there is no leader board with who has the most points. Lately a lot of people have really been posting some really really dumb stuff, like amnesty this person and that person, well you can't if you already used it! Or trade Chris Bosh for a 2nd rd pick, etc..

It's needed. Makes people do

It's needed. Makes people do their research before saying Colton Iverson is Allen's younger brother.

I am 100% surprised that as

I am 100% surprised that as of right now you don't have any +1's or -1s. I like the system though simply because if you say something dumb then you get -1's and if you say awesome then you get +1's. Getting upset because people don't share the same opinion as you shouldn't matter.

I agree but there are times

I agree but there are times when someone with a good reputation will write something and get a plus 15 but if somebody who was -100 said the exact same thing they would get -10 because of perception. It is a good system though because I like to thumbs up or thumbs down people from my thrown of Judgement like I am the Emperor of Rome.

Y'all got it twisted! Points

Y'all got it twisted!

Points are so important! Without them, we'd all die!

They are as important .....

....as Jerry Springer's Final Thoughts

....as 140 character limit to MikeyV

....as a salad bar at a strip club

....as a girlfriend to Aamir

....as Canada

.....an exercise bike at Rick Ross' crib

.....as McDunkin's love to Cynthia

It's the internet, some

It's the internet, some people are just always going to be rude.

I think the point system is good, it lets you know how many people agree/disagree with something you've said and can help you become a better poster. As someone else kind of said it makes people more likely to do research before posting things, which is a good thing.

There will always be trolls but the majority of us do actually talk about basketball, and toss ideas back and forth. I rarely see people get negged crazily unless it's a trade idea or if they're being hostile. For the most part you see much more positives than negatives.

There's people who care about points/reputation and there's people who just simply don't, it's not really hurting anyone. No reason to get offended or take it personal.

"I don't care about Negs" but

"I don't care about Negs" but I will create an entire thread on the topic anyway- Cardinal Fan

Negged!

I don't Neg people unless they are recycling the same topic (like the 20 What will the Lakers do posts that popped up after Dwight signed in Houston) or are just completely ignorant. If you have a different opinion than me I can live with that...it would be boring if everybody thought the same thing. In the end though this isn't a competition and it is all for fun.

I love them almost as much as I love......

Look here Cynthia I know we haven't known each other long, or at all really but that's ok...because I know it might be real...like a 14% chance at the most.

But real talk ...you wanna get an apartment and follow our dreams together?

Points matter, anyone who

Points matter, anyone who says otherwise is a liar. When the point system was taken away a year or two ago forum activity dropped by like 75% with half the remaining posters b!tching about the system being gone. As far as negs go...learn to deal with it because d-bags aren't going away.
