Get him out of here
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
The entire "basement bar" thread can go so the OP can start over. Probably one of those times I should have said "this place is full of jerks - it's not worth clikcing 'post reply'."
I got out of that thread when I saw the quality of the people posting in that thread. I knew it wouldn't end well. No surprise that it didn't
You'd think I'd know better at this stage of the game.
Mods/Staff/Whomever... the "ignore" feature doesn't seem to be working.
You never answered my Mel Brooks question.
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
It's twue, it's twue. I did not.
Lock the Westboro Baptist Church thread or send it to Wells. Full-blown religion argument.
Sheesus. This is quite the list of apple polishers. Why don't you guys mind your own business instead of acting like you're wearing a badge, sucking up to the MODs? Your tattling is an embarrassment.
In particular, you, Royal. You lied and a thread died. There was no such thing going on in the WBC thread. History, yes. Talk about an alleged---ALLEGED---"church," i.e., the WBC, yes. Talk about current events, yes. But not a "full-blown religion argument." And see, you convinced some MOD to delete the entire thread.
How old are you and did you graduate from Michigan State?
why dont you write up another 2000 word diatribe about Gholston leaving early. Do you have one ready for Payne in case he decides to go pro?
Go Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Pioneers.
Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
I don't write "diatribe[s]" so I don't know where you're coming from. I'll leave it to you to write about Payne and how much his presumed departure will "benefit" our program because we've put yet another guy into the NBA. Write that one up, genius.
Ban Horatio in the Boston Marathon thread.
Obviously someone who got banned and is trying to circumvent.
Indeed. Please take out the trash.
Thank you, Denicos.
Thanks. He's also The_Dude and Walter_Sanchez
I think he's BillOGoods too!
No that's Mrs. Rick Comley
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
This is certainly a reasonable complaint. Tattle tales take note.
I think you're a sissy.
No, I think you know it's your mother.
sorry, it wasnt Gholston, it was Bell. Lets look at a sample of your posts from THIS thread alone...
Okay. I get banned for a day after disagreeing with those wishing Le'veon Bell well for leaving early, calling him a "great Spartan," and also those saying leaving early is "good for" our football program. So, per the rule of 247Sports, I send a PM to both the Mod banning me and the primary administrator of this Board pleading my case that the Mod's conduct was, itself, wrongful, arbitrary, reprehensible, and so on. Per the rules of 247Sports, posted at their FAQ page, that's exactly what you're supposed to do:
"Why am I blacklisted/banned?
"If you are blacklisted or banned from a specific site, please contact the moderators or administrators of that specific site via e-mail or private message."
With full knowledge of the rules of this Board, I have a 100% equitable case for wrongful deletion of a post and, therefore, wrongful banning. The Mod was 110% in the wrong deleting my post. There is nothing in the allegedly offending post that would violate any rule of this Board, except I did use the word "'friggen," but there were no pictures of anyone's crotch, at all---male, female, or other. None!
Now, when you are banned, you cannot see any posts. I make this obvious point because the Mod banning me and the "administrator" of this Board never responded to my PM. However, when I'm released from Tailgate Penitentiary, I goes to da scene of my alleged crime to check out the aftermath. I sees some weird stuff posted, but I also see the Mod's after-the-fact post suggesting he read my PM and saying, in effect, he was within his rights to ban me and lamely claiming something about I "slandered" Mr. Bell.
Now, I would like to know from those I PM'd the following:
(a) how does this guy, the Mod, get off just arbitrarily deleting my post simply because he disagrees with my point and for no other reason. That's just wrong. Too much of this crap and this Board is humdrum, at best;
(b) the Mods have to follow the rules, too, and 247Sports says my recourse if I'm banned is to send a PM to the Mod and/or the administrator, which I did, and plead my case. So, how can the Mod or the administrator just not respond at all to my PM?; and
(c) Isn't it stupid, or cowardly, by the Mod to "respond" to my post by posting in the thread, trying rationalize his wrongful deletion of my post, after he has banned me saying I "slandered" the player? Without pointing out the false statement that he thinks is slander and without the ability for anyone else to see if my post was slanderous? I mean, he's the one that slandered me, technically.
The Mod is wholly, completely, utterly and totally wrong in deleting my post and his statement, post-deletion, is a fiction and false rationalization for the wrongful deletion. I believe that if the Mod understood the legal maxim "summon jus suma injuria," we'd all be a lot better off around here.
I await your response.
For someone I always considered a reasonable person, you obviously don't know what you're talking about here.
First, you simply could not have read my post if you call what I said "absolute horse-shit" and "bashing Bell." You're covering for your fellow Mod, that's pretty obvious. The fact is, Bell isn't a "great Spartan" because he is leaving early and, thereby, screwing the program. But I never diminished his contributions as a football player, as you are suggesting. I clearly stated in the post who is worthy of being "a great Spartan" and why. See link below for Mark Dantonio's statement on it.
I'm happy to PM what I posted to you if you want to see it.
Second, did you see Mark Dantonio's statement about Bell leaving early? I wouldn't exactly call it an endorsement, particularly when you consider he's the head coach and must chose his words carefully. You can see the link, below. I think he would agree with my post.
Third, is it really your position, like those I'm responding to in the post, that these early departures "help" the football program? I'd talk to Coach Dantonio for the answer to that one. It's pretty obvious. Bell, Gholdie, and Sims versus those I cited in the "offending" post as staying all four years to help their programs. Yea, we're getting to the Rose Bowl real fast with "help" like that. We're being "gutted" by people that don't have to leave the program, would benefit from staying, and in at least two of the three cases have reasons to return some loyalty to the coaching staff.
Fourth, just to make it clear as I'm not going to "re-post" the terrible, offensive, post: I made it clear it was Bell's choice and God-love-him for it. But I can comment on the wisdom of the choice and that's what I did.
Finally, I never had a post deleted since the inception of this Board, including all its precursors, so, when the post was initially deleted, I thought it was technical error---not the intentional act of a Mod. DMBSpartan had quoted the post in his post and that was still there. I then reposted it. When I realized the Mod had intentionally delted it, I thought he had "lost his mind," as I said in the thread, and I posted it again thinking he hadn't read it very closely (as in took the word of somebody else about its content). So, I posted it intially, then again thinking it was a technical issue, then again astonished anyone who read the post would delete it. The Mod was flat out wrong.
Because somebody disagrees does not give you equitable license to delete a post. There is plenty of flotsam and jetsom on this Board to keep you busy and allow honest discussion, such as my post.
And attached Snake's screenshot of your dumbass post that was being debated

Whatever it is you have done here does not respond to the substance of my post to you. Yours is nothing but posts by me, which I stand by, am proud of, make sense, are what the coaches would say if they were "unplugged," and what others had only inane responses to. These are not "diatribes," if that's your point. You don't know what a diatribe is if that's your unspoken claim.
My posts, deletion of which was a rare mistake in judgment by the MOD, remains true and correct in every material respect. I completely stand by it and, furthermore, would not object if it were resurrected to regular size type.
So, I have no idea where you are coming from. You are a fraud, a lightweight, and confused.
I'm a fraud? A fraud at what? And what exactly am I confused about?
A bitter verbal or written attack? Yeah, that's exactly what you did against Bell for him having the nerves to pursue his dreams in the NFL without consulting you.
I'll repeat my question, you have your 2000 word essay about how Payne isnt a great Spartan ready to go should he decide to enter the draft? You crying that you weren't able to use your Harris one?
Have to give you credit for still maintaining the butthurt about the post deletion, at least you still think you weren't in the wrong
Your mother got a wooden leg with a kick stand
I'm going to take your last sentence seriously and thank you for the compliment. As to the rest of the post, I mean, you took the trouble to repeat my threads and I'm struggling to see why it's a "diatribe." I'm not bitter. It's not a long piece. If, what you claim, is 2,000 words is long to you, . . . no comment. This is an essay and quite a good one that can be read in under three minutes. Case closed. Let's be friends.
