The Point System On This Site Should Be Taken Off...Since We Don't Have Enough Integrity 2 Use It.
Example One: Although I am just presented facts and sharing a story of how I got raped I will get negatives for this post because people can't handle the truth.
I have been coming onto this site for close to a decade now.
I had an account a few times but never got into the post.
Recently when I created which must of been like my 7th account I started to take it more seriously because My Sixers had the 2nd pick in the draft prepped to draft Turner despite me wanting them to get Cousins but whatever.
I really love this site because above all other sports basketball if my solace. I have played basketball my whole life. Play PG in High School and played Varsity as a sophomore. Decided to go to Temple instead of offers from other schools to play basketball at I wanted to go to Temple. Well I wasn't good enough to make there team it was cool because I loved the college and Temple is in my neighborhood so I stayed close to home. After 3 years of going to college I got a call to arms and decided to join the Army.
My point is no matter where I go, not matter where my training is at this site always brings me back to a feeling of home.
So people are extremely funny on this site and others offer invaluable insight.
And others just have no integrity are uptight, either young, or have no life.
I use to view the point system when I first started posting as a way to differentiate between those who make sense and others who try.
But after coming home from workout tonight after 4 hours, and finding out that I lost over 200 points despite not even making any new post I was puzzled.
I checked where the negatives came from and it seemed that most of them came from post dating back weeks ago. Like my one post I know I had 4 now I have 3. So that narrows it down. Somebody has taken time out of their life to go back and rape me of points for no apparent reason.
I have never disrespected anybody on this site and in real life I am a very playful person who is always joking around because life bores me.
Either way i dont care...I just think its ridiculous, out of pocket, and shows no integrity. The gripe I have when people take points during a discusion is atleast say what you disagree with I'm talkative and want responses not just a thumbs up or down. I wanna learn like other should wanna do.
Just thought I'd give my opinion, tell you a little about myself so you know what to expect and what type of person is making these post.
So the point of this was to let you know that the point system is shot to hell and to stop taking me the wrong way because I'm a playfull person.
Peace to all now let the negative energy begin
I want a batman cookie for this post
some people like cucumbers better pickled
and """bow our heads"""
a prayer to the gif. gods
"Lets gif. this B!tch up!"
I Love the Gifs,John Wall failing drug tests and Haters that come with this site...My points were taking away in bunches during the draft and I started a War vs. the entire site,NY and Minnesota fan bases and come full circle...The NY fans are still annoying and cling onto their dreams of Carmelo and CP3 but reality is they suck and will always suck...The Wolves fans hate me because their team is soooo dysfunctional and bad that they have nothing else to do but hate me...
I too was screaming for the Sixers to trade the 2nd pick for the Wolves 4th/16th and 23rd picks...Wolves fans said it was too much for Turner and look what they got...4 Sf's that ain't better than Turner...I would have drafted Cousins and tried my hardest to trade for Xavier Henry(the 16th and 23rd pick could have gotten that done...)
I wasn't down on Turner In fact i loved Turner and thought he was the best player in the draft John Wall included...just not the right fit and trading him held so much promise...I wanted a Center and a Shooter like Henry outta this draft but heah...NY still stroke out in Free Agency unless you call giving Amare the Max a win...
The Wolves blew another draft and Now I have to root for them because I'm a big Beasley Fan...I want them to figure it out soon for his sake...
I also don't want to trade Iggy/Thad or Turner unless it's a deal worth singing in the streets about...I wanna grow as a young talented core and try our luck in the Draft( I just want another top 10 pick and to select Perry Jones, Enes Kanter or Jared Sullinger with it...
Yeah, somebody took my points from my past post from like a few months ago too. Now that's just pressed. Whoever is doing this has no life.

Vote Mr. 19134 for forum president.
Yah that happens alot, you may have upset someone with your statement or because you ruined their wildest dreams with common sense, now that person maybe hunting you down for your points lol. Random points taking should be expected if you want to post on this site. MR19134 maybe it was because of the Manny Harris thread. When you said Manny is the next Oscar Robertson...
And those slimy politicians said the Great Point Scandal was over...
It was only just beginning...
Vagisil for those dry, itchy moments
The same thing happened to me last night... Somebody literally took the time to go back into my old posts and give me almost 400 negatives. Lmao... IF I wanted to, I could go through every post I've ever made and bump myself up thousands of points, but it's not worthed. I'd rather spend that hour or so playing 2K11 lol.
We have some lames on this site though... That's for sure.
I had 1,018 points one day.
Came back, I have 950 something.
Crazy right? lol.
I was mad for a second, but ya know, its whatever. If people want to be stupid and spend there time lurking around a whole thread just to take points away, then let them do it.
Am I just paranoid, or is everybody suddenly referring to me as lame?
You guys make me sad...
McDunk ur da man.
And no the great point scandal is not over...its coming back to haunt us....
And scare crow all I wanted was the 4th and the 16 pick, i figured we could of got Counins and I thought Henry would fall if not then I thought maybe George would fall, But atleast Cousins and James Anderson would of been a nice look. Jordan Crawford too was worth the 16th pick.
The Manny Harris post must of really gotten people upset...I thought it was funny...but then again some people are just too uptight...
This site is about having fun while discussing basketball that why I love it, but some people are just party poopers.
They're the type with no friends in real life, how can you have a friend without a sense of humor.
I don't even care anymore. There's little I can do about this "point bandit." Besides, my "legacy" has already been established. The only thing I can think of is to administer a short I.Q. test for new members, but what if cyclo or Quincey are banned? How would they get new accounts?
Yeah there should be some sort of I.Q. test that's easier enough to establish who is mature enough to post on this site.
It is people like this point phantom that really hold this site back from being the number one stop for basketball ball fans to come and communicate.
Maybe even paying like a dollar to join that would keep a lot of losers out. And it would make the site more money to step their game up.
Whose up for charging a membership fee? I kno times are rough but even something as small as a dollar will keep people from wasting our time.
I would pay $19.95 to post here.
Provided my soul-mate OrangeJuiceJones comes with me.
Only if I get the Billy Mays (R.I.P) infomercial special. Yes, I would be willing to pay shipping and handling. Yes, I do live in NJ, so I would have to add sales tax.
LOL Why Am i the only one getting points taken away on this post, I really don't care but it's starting to feel a little personally....like somebody dont really like me...and will do everything in they're meaningless life to sabotage my hard work...well it's not hard...or is it...no Its not what you think Im not touching myself..
Cum bacc...line nut on ur spine...
The only thing that bothers me about it, is not knowing who it is.
I kno whadda coward.
Its like the Wizard of Oz.
And I wanna know whose behind that curtain...
