A letter to tli232 A.K.A.the MOD
Dear Mr. Bold and Italic Letters Man:
Yesterday, you made a very unnecessary comment in regards to tigers04 introducing himself. I'm sure that most of us are fully aware that this is a basketball site. However, not every post has to be about basketball, which is why we have an off-topic forum. It's nice to see someone who is looking towards becoming a regular contributor introduce themselves, and I feel that you are scaring them away with comments like the one you made earlier. I know that he posted this in the NBA draft forum, but you can just use your magic moderator powers and put them in the off-topic forum.
Judging by the way you type, you seem like a very intelligent and well-spoken person. I can't say the same for your social skills, they seem to be lacking a little bit. Too much time with your head in the books and too little time outside can do that to you. You may go to an Ivy League school, but that doesn't make you any better than the rest of us as far as personality goes.
YOU might be tired of those type of threads, but the majority of the regular users don't seem to care. Those posts aren't an everyday problem, as most of the users on here didn't introduce themselves. Just because you have a problem with something doesn't mean that it should get deleted. Your word shouldn't be the final/only word over the dozens of users that log on to this site daily. Get off your high horse and stop threatening us.
PS: I know this is kinda long and unnecessary, but I'm trying to improve my writing skills :)
i second that. But I honestly don't think he is really a mod. Why would a mod go around boasting how he can delete whatever he wants. Besides, I remember him posting a really dumb link from some study 4 months ago that his college proffesor gave him that was basically just trying to stir stuff up. It was basically showing studies that were degrading to african american genetics and had absolutley nothing to do with basketball. I called him out for it and he appologized. So he is no better then anyone else.
Seriously? Come on. As much as I enjoy the anarchy and "sticking it to the man", let's not get carried away here.
Seriously? Come on. As much as I enjoy the anarchy and "sticking it to the man", let's not get carried away here. This isn't a punk-rock concert where you can call out other users and express your disdain with the mods. If you have Basketball ideas, share them. I don't want to sound like a narc, but I'm tired of all these threads where people post in order to stick up for a fellow user. In all seriousness, I really don't appreciate threads like these because this IS basketball website, so if the talk is not regarding Basketball, or anything remotely related, I will delete it. I know that everyone hates on the MODS here, so go ahead, call me an A-hole, give me negative points. In the end, I'm here to MODerate this site and the threads to make it basketball-relevant and clean as possible.
I will let this thread exist for another few hours, after everyone "cyber-speculates" with you, I will erase this thread
Thanks for understanding.
u mods r &$#%#&@!
lol i really dont care anymore if i get banned cuz ill just go else where if it hapens
some ones post something on the off topic forum and ur banning that lol.
i do dislike the unnecessary post on main page but on this. get ur heads out of ur ass
what happened to the cyber-speculating and then deleting this?
butidonthavemoney is a mod?!?
...I'll give you guys a few more days......
.....To understand the joke...
lol i was just joking i knew you weren't a mod.
give me a week
Butidonthavethemoney copy and pasted tli232's post from a few days ago. I even remember the wording. I don't think btownkid will ever be allowed to become a mod on here. lol
I hate you your the most annoying person on here...4 real.
Thank you O.J Jones... i thought i was the only one
He is the mod....respect him man.
I don't have any problems with tli or anyone else. People should not hold grudges. If you get irritated with a certain poster, just let it slide. As long as people contribute to the site, I'm not gonna hold something they might have said in the past against them.
1. Why would he be a Mod
2. Who would even make him a mod and Y
Who are the mods on here? I totally missed that.
I am a mod
me and spencerishawesome2
I moderate the f.uck outta this site
As a mod, I'm considering banning DChump
what? when did this happen?
Lets talk about it at our weekly mod meeting.. Im thinkin DChump if the first that needs to go to clean up this site.
I agree fellow mod. He's bringing this site down. Bird this has been going on for a while. We are Aran's right hand men.
what? are you banning me?
No, DChump (the most foolish basketball mind in the world. Next to Kevin McHale anyway)
I've been thinking... We shouldn't ban DHamp. Think about it. Small fish...
That's why my idea is the greatest, most amazing and most diabolical plan EVER!
We should pool our modding powers together and ban Aran Smith. Us, Spencerishawesome2, TheAlchemist and meh.... butidonthavemoney! Now we can run the website... Alone... TOGETHER!
Hey no money, I want in. And here are some ideas for articles I would like to submit on the front page once we run Aran out of here:
"why it doesn't matter how good Blake Griffin is. Because he is a CLIPPER!"
"The official 2009-10 NBA season Preview: aka, who's playing for second after the Lakers"
"Let's find Waldo at a Memphis Grizzlies game. hint; he's the one on the left."
"Who fathered this child? featuring Shawn Kemp" it will be a guessing game matching the nba player with his illigitimate children.
"Top 10 drinking games to get Bucks fans through another game"
"How to successfully run a franchise, by Isiah Thomas"
And of course a thourough run down of all dance team girls from around the league
wow.... can you make me a mod once you concur the site?
I want a completed Blake Griffin article on my desk by noon tomorrow. Pick me up a basket of blueberry muffins on your way and don't even think about eating one... Then you can join us...
IIperez i am on the verge of making you a mod. keep up the good work son. I am currently in the process of banning DChump, just finalising the paperwork. Bird, you will also be considered for mod status, on the condition that you return as bobbob.
all you must strip down spray paint yourself with a Hannah Montana picture and run through the streets singing her songs or else i will ban you.... all of you.
Fair play gatorheels. i respect you if you are a mod. i will personally deliver those donuts myself, and throw in a can of coke for good measure.
i have a few ideas too. why not make our version of espn insider heres some ideas for it
Eddy Curry on how to lose weight and stay in shape
John Bryant on how to pick up chicks
Greg Oden on how to look young
Randolph on how to be a team player
Clippers with in depth weekly power ranking explaining why the Clippers are number one on the list
Btownkid with the weekly MVP race with John Bryant on the top of the list
the guy who told us about the Amare for Pierce and Rondo trade3 that trade hasn't happened so he must have a time machine and can go forward and tell us all the trades in the future like that trade
and of course how to successfully run a website by butidonthavemoney, alchemist , Spencerhawesome2.
best part is only $92.50 a month! plus you get a free Eddy Curry bobble head its a good idea people will die for this news they would par a million dollars. only one word comes to mind.... shamsuccess!
This guy is a shamgenius. Great ideas bird, they are all wonderful. I've just confirmed with Aran that you are a mod. well done.
All mod starting lineup
6 th man - tli
i'm so excited about this i might need a sh-ambulance
thanks alchemist. when can you get the new ''how to successfully run a website'' in to me so i can post it?
hey tli, mcdunkin here...i got the new Revengers dress code manual in the mail today
and i was wondering if the livestrong bracelet is absolutely needed? I mean Lance doesnt even wear them anymore
and please de-mod money
That almost looks like TLI's boyfriend, and his bedroom...Not that I would know...*Cough Cough*
I can't believe they made me a mod because of this one topic.
This is what started the tli bashing. I actually saved screenshots of the post OJJ is referring to (which was in fact, deleted). Piece of Draft.net history right here.
haha whats a birdzilla?
TLI was like a Disney cartoon villian with the way he hated friendship.
.....To understand the joke...
