I can understand if he pissed off the mods, but as far as his posting skills, this dude is literate enough to post a whole essay to back up his points. I know he's said somethings I might not agree with, but at least he's engaging in discussions and doing his best to back up his points.
Take a look at guys like HarryCallahan or Nathanjizzle. Have any of you guys ever had a serious intelligent discussion with the 2 of them? I mean seriously, think about it. The two of them are as dumb as liquid ice, can't write proper english if a green card depended on it, and has never once displayed an ounce of intelligence IN ANY discussion on this forum ever since I've been here.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not just being a d*ck and targetting them; there are some posters I hate (niko and kevnyc come to mind) but at least I can appreciate what they bring to the table.
There should be a distinction between a mindless troll and a controversial poster.
Unless if he really pissed off Jeff (dumb move), then I don't support the idea he should be banned because of his incessant love for Kobe. I just don't. Hate on him all you want but at least he's bringing something to the table with his posts.
You can't say so much for most of the idiots in here who can't even write more than a one liner.
Some of you lamenting on him, why? He's not a good poster, he's just being a jerk to get views. Like the gun pushing thing, he really had no knowledge, no real opinion, he was just pushing it because it had the most people arguing against. If we all said YEAH GOOD IDEA! he would have dropped it and mad a different topic. He's just an ass.
