Interesting thread. Too bad some dbags hijacked it with their lame insults. I will do my best to bring it back to topic for what its worth. Im really just going to post who I enjoy reading more, since smarts and messageboard shouldnt be in the same sentence.
Lamar Doom or SoCalMike?
I enjoy his moderate republican leanings based on fiscal conservatism. I like doom as well
or Brantoli? Brantoli comes across as a homer a little often. Gen may be a little childish, but his avatar is solid.
Starface or White Chocolate
? Hard one. Starface is obviously a reasonably intelligent kid, but his my way or the highway attitude has plenty of room for improvement
or Cannonball? hmmn, actually I may have to switch this, but really I wouldnt chose either.
vs. JtotheIzzo damn. good matches J$. many of these have been tough choices. Im gonna go rufus cause I like his laid back southern style and generally pleasant, positive attitude.
blasian or hito da god
? well, lets see. Blasian is a smart well versed and wide ranging music expert and so is Hito. I am gonna call this one a draw
GeeWiz15 or I seen hippos
? His dry humor is apparently missed or ignored by most of you, but I think hes one funny cat. Havent see the geezwhiz very often lately.
stewen12 or Phar
? stewen was pretty funny in his crybaby personality but phar gets the nod for being generally well thought out if a little bland.
or Zen? I like both these guys. Gts is sometimes a little full of it (arent we all?) but willing to engage in debate and admit when he is wrong.
or bigboi_baller? Brwnman, mostlybecause he calls people dumbasses
Boozehound vs. DeuceWallaces
vs. RedBlackAttack? Is there a reason why this is the only 3 way race? Probably the hardest since I have immense respect for the other two posters mentioned. Of course the real answer is me
, but Ill go with DW over RBA based on two criteria; field of study and fandome.
vs. Posts Penyeach? Really
Gencbiba or ALBAlla
? fault. double entry disqualifies Gencbiba
or poorlilrich? Falking T-sip is a down to earth rox fan. used to be hard to find, but becoming increasingly prevalent.
vs. VCDAPTW? VC is probably "smarter" but anyone caught in such a shameful misrepresentation of their life for no reason loses. Plus Jay has a good personality and can hook me up with some hot latinas next time Im in the D.
or Pete's Montreux? Oh, what about johndeeregreen? I like all these classic rocker types. Im gonna go with LJJ for his incomprehensible love of Rundgren and his leanings towards good slide guitar.
Bean or KBlaze
? Really? I like Bean, but Blaze makes good vids, is reasonably articulate and Ive never seen him flustered/angry.
or Maniak? hmmn, I know the screen name Maniak but I cant think of the personality so BB4L wins
or BULLS? Well, I guess syphilis is better than herpes
or GoBB? nice guy. well reasoned. again, I like both of these posters about the same and think they both contribute positively to the board. but MLh self-effacing personality (which can be a little annoying sometimes) is better than Gobb's abrasive personality.
vs. Doctor K? again I know the screen name Dr. K, but cant think of the poster. CB FTW
or V-Unit? Ahh, well I like Stro better for sure. but Vag unit has his qualities as well. I think ive probably seen more insightful posts from the vag, but Ive seen some terrible posts as well. Stros highs may not be as high, but his lows arent nearly as low either. Plus props for the daily dunk thread (even though I think the glorification of ups and dunks has been a huge disservice in the development of young players like D-ho)
vapid or Kwajo
? Gotta love the geographer from the bay of fundy. Possibly my favorite canuk on the site, but there is lots of northern quality to choose from.
But clearly the smartest poster on the site (as well as most creative thread maker) is J$. Sometimes he wears thin, but he has the wherewithal to recognize this and create a new, generally fun personality. Obviously Im being sarcastic you falkign d-bags. though I do think $ is pretty smart and an enjoyable member of our fake little ecommunity.
**** I didnt realize bean was nastamav. also why isnt tetris and others (kebabstall, Raweed1, Mathius) on the list?
