We should vote. Let's be democratic then. If the majority says to ban him, let the vote judge him.

Otherwise, if he is voted for banning, his supporters will fight for his first amendment right to express his opinion.

PB is one here for one reason: people respond to his threads.

People respond, views increase, ads generate revenue.

They are on here all the time. Either steve/jeff or the other people who use the insidehoops account. Try making an anti-ISH post and it'll get shot down.

They let PB stay because he makes threads people respond to and thats what any owner of a forum would want. Its not bad; its smart business. They tried to ban and do other stuff, but PB got back on one way or another. So its pointless for them to shoot themselves in the foot by taking away PB's ability to generate discussion, albeit repetitive/annoying/agenda driven/irrational discussion.

PB's here to stay; trolls are part of the ISH experience.

PB = Jeff.

The more troll threads, the more ad revenue.


You're welcome.

Basically what bigboiballer and bdreason say.

Trolls as annoying as PB generate threads with replies, no matter how illogical / inmature the content is. You see the view/reply account and think it generates attention, which means more ad $. And he is careful to make them within the rules.


On the other hand, you can't convince everyone to stay away from his threads. They're so f*cking stupid that someone will reply. It's like the latest scandal: it's ridiculous, stupid, and doesn't make any sense, but still you will be curious about it.


It's not about having a quality forum, it's about $ within the rules.

PB's threads are spoiled by his past reputation. I actually think he brings up good discussion points. Sure they can be controversial, especially combined with the context in which he usually posts, but if one looks through all that and looks at what his question basically asks, they aren't bad at all. Besides, aren't the heated arguments the more fun ones?

Dude, don't even waste your time. You see how all these 'rational' posters become ghost when I make an absolutely valid thread, only for these clowns go all Helen Keller on me by acting like they don't see the obvious trolling and ganging up on me that ensues. All my threads are about basketball. I never make personal insults -- and these, again, 'level-headed' posters leave me on an island with thses savages who repeatily call me out my name and talk about pizza in my threads.

Ask them that.

This is the only ****ing place in the internet that allows you to post your crap. You're lucky Jeff/Steve never regulate this forum, or you'd be banned. I've never seen you try to post in other forums like RealGM. You know why? Because they wouldn't stand for your sh!t and you'd be ignored and banned.

I think your threads are fine, they just state something controversial and generate a two sided mini-war between the Cavs/Lebron guys and the Lakers/Kobe guys. People just can't relax and answer a question without getting outraged about what the truth might entail. I admit im guilty of it myself, but in the end, who the hell really cares what some dude online is saying about your team?

This site needs more mods. Outside of Stroshow, I think everyone else has pretty much quit coming here. What he is saying isn't as annoying as when he makes threads about stuff thats already being discussed in another topic. He's not the only one who does that, though. Mods should be given the ability to merge topics
