As I said all along, smart people will see what's up.
I might irritate some of you. You may irritate me.

My attitude may be irritating. What I find irritating about some of you folks is that I suspect there huge gaps in your knowledge of basketball which isn't a bad thing because not everyone can be an Einstein but remember, you started calling me out first. You drew the first blood. Despite the lack of knowledge I sense a serious amount of homerism.
I tolerated you folks until you started calling me out because of our disagreements.

You folks started it first. Calling me a moron, a retard etc for not agreeing with you.

Here's a nice thread that proves my point

http://www.insidehoops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37647

Some of you came out of the blue just to insult me, not discuss the post.

And from that moment on, it turned into what it is right now.

We're different people, too. Guess that adds to it.

You folks are mostly old timers, chilled, relaxed and all that while have the street hunger
Seriously, I hope you see what I mean..

So after disagreements and all that, it was only natural that we'd start insulting each other.

The person who deserves the most blame for that is me because I get irritated by people who I consider homers and some of you take the cake there but just for the record, I wanted to be nice to everyone here and not insult anyone and it was all well until that Oscar Robertson thread.

You folks started it, at least admit that.

As for oru basketball knowledge, I'm not the one who acts humble.
I know I'm way above you. Not a diss or anything. Just what I consider to be the fact.

And smart people can recognize that
And they have.

ok one way let me point some things out to you, read my responses and try and really take them to heart, you don't have to agree but do try and understand...please...

your opening statment places your readers in a position that says, "i'm better than you. if you don't agree your not smart"

once again you insult peoples intelligence, your assuming that because someone may disagree with you that they have huge gaps in their knowledge, and your irratated by their lack of knowledge

the second you assume a person who is older than you is not as hungry as you your doomed to fail... ask george foreman

you have once again insulted your reader, no where have you shown you have any respect for anyone but those who agree with you...


oneway i have no idea how old you are, but i can tell you something, that promoting yourself as the smartest person around may be the dumbest thing a person can do.... a trully intelligent person knows they have much more to learn only a idiot thinks they know everything....

i work in an industry where technology changes at the speed of light and if we don't constantly adapt and keep searching for answers we are on the back row... i have seen so many kids fresh out of school with their engineering degrees fail because they fail to realize that the education they have is not the final answer... on another front i have told a kid i was working with that if he kept it up and didn't listen he was going to hurt himself, he kept it up, i walked away and the following day another instructor called up and said the kid had smoked it into the wall and was paralyzed from the waist down... sometimes it really sucks to be right too...so anyways just think about it and understand that your opinions are not any better or worse than the next persons...

Heres what I got out of it.

Nicely said gts...

I will point out that the thread that Soccer, OneWay, etc., was one that is clearly out of line from a timeline example.

If one were to go back further, even before the Soccer screen name, one would see that his track record of behavior was consistently violating forum guidelines.

I remember when I first met ManUtd and I thought he was cool and one of the guys (or gals). He had some good points and even reminded me of my dad. We even joked about it a bit in the forum. Then the first melt down that I noticed came and with it came insults and rude behavior. Needless to say, ManUtd was banned by his behavior in the main forum.

So, this Rambo BS of "you drew first blood, not me" is just not true. You have been violating forum guidelines for reasonable behavior consitently and pretty much daily.

I have no issues personally in someone expressing their thoughts and ideas for debate. I have no issues with someone being passionate about what they believe. I do have issues with others trying to suppress my opinions and getting personal and questioning my intelligence. I do have issues with people being rude and violating forum guidelines.

I have never personally professed to know everything about basketball. THAT IS EXACTLY WHY I PARTICIPATE HERE! I engage, I read, I debate and I learn. The old saying "a mind must be like a parchute... it has to be open to work" definitely applies. Anyone who thinks they know it all is just a punk and immature.

This is the last I am going to say about it. I am disappointed it has gotten this bad and gone this far. I am disappointed that we are wasting our time talking about this person's behavior rather than talking about the Lakers, basketball, and the future for our team.

I agree that any insults out there aren't warranted because we never had that on these forums unless its from DLakerfan or something

Just my two cents.

Now let me get what people are going at...OneWay's posts and opinions are appreciated but his behavior isn't?

Posts in this thread will be deleted in time

he's a rude a-hole. there are lots of people w b-ball knowledge. so what! that doesn't excuse being an a-hole. not sure exactly what your role is as mod, but I assumed it was, in part, moderating rude behavior. he keeps getting banned in the main forum. for good reason.

the point is his posts aren't worthless.

and none of us should leave just because he posts.

are you planning to spend your life adapting to a-holes?

agreed. if the mods don't do anything about it, then I can just listen to that kind of garbage in the main forum or other sites.

Thank you. Don't sell me short, dude.

Oh and there's no reason to ban me here. You don't just ban people because they're rude, come on now

I got banned from the main forum for name calling. I stop the name calling and what can you do, ban me for being rude? Well, give it a shot

Your sincerely

Far more knowledgable than you, rude a hole.

You're welcome.

And you can what? Until you deserve my respect.....absolutley nothing.
So start earning it.

True in life, and true in forums:
You can be the most knowledgable person in the world but nobody is going to listen to you if you treat them like crap.

I think it's just that he's more blunt than anything.

SoCalMike, leaving this site would be pointless...Don't leave just because of one guy. if you don't want to hear him just simply ignore his posts.

Letting people leave these sites is a big loss. We don't need any more fueds as we already have Phil vs Shaq now.

If we all read in between OneWay's lines and just look for what he's trying to say about bball, we will find that he truly is one of the better posters here. I don't want to lose anyone.

BleedinPurple, If there are several other people with basketball knowledge, please name them as all I see that are knowledgable are the "core-group" in here. All the newbies usually suck.

C'mon we have better things to worry about than just one poster, who IMO, is doing just fine in here.

Your loss. You"ll be missing more knowledge than you can handle. Sad, isn't it?
Oh well now, don't cry, it's all fine and dandy, some guy jokes will make you feel better, no? Did you know that guys like cars? Hahaha.
