Default Re: have there ever been this many dolts at once?

Glove's lists are pretty solid. He may have an agenda, but he's still been great at prompting good discussions.

I really think I'm going to break out the ignore feature here.

I've never used the ignore feature before cause I've always found idiots entertaining at least a little, and if I'm not in the mood I can gloss over the posts. but these days it's out of control. they just can't be avoided anymore, and they come in such high volumes that they've lost their charm.

is it just me?

THE OFFICIAL LIST OF DOLTS. (suggest others)

1. Glove_20
2. Pleezebelieve
3. HollaBalla
4. guangmoreno
5. Baller1986
6. FabCasablancas
7. jasonterry

you must be really simple if you think Glove_20 is worth his post total. anyone could do what he does. click new thread, make a dumb topic like "top 10 defensive teams ever" then list a bunch of teams and trivia that everyone already knows and not put it in order or anything. and what about his complete invasion of game threads? consistent nonsense in topics he didn't create?

no because I'm smarter than they are and if these morons are going to invade and destroy the quality of my board, I reserve the right to have at least one topic making fun of them.

Glove's a good poster. His all-time kinda lists are interesting. Not talking about him. Sure, he's opinionated, but if you're going to knock him for that, don't forget to include yourself.

It's not just that there are dumbasses on this board, they're everywhere. It's that they stick around, post thousands of times, and generally start to get accepted.

It's why I didn't mind the rep system, even if it was inherently flawed. It gave you some sort of idea of who came with their A-game, and who didn't. Who was a blatant homer, etc. Didn't matter if you had 3,000 posts or 30, if people weren't feeling you, you could tell.

The rep system was abused. People gave negative reps if

A) They disliked you
B) You disagreed with them
C) You insulted their team or favorite player
D) Because they could

Their was a bunch of people complaining about receiving racist remarks.

The only real tools that actually bring the overall quality of this board down are:

Pleezebelieve
HollaBalla
guangmoreno

And at the very least 2 of those 5 are the same people.

Glove's not on my xmas list but he's no where near as bad as those other guys. He know's his basketball at the very least. He's a crappy thread maker but he's not at hollaball's level.

I don't think Glove_20 is like that.

Cavsfan is though.

Why is guangmoreno even aloud to post here? He can barely speak english, and he uses unknown phrases like "im a real rox fan" WTF? Or "Lebron is most null player" HUH?

Baller1986 is Cavsfan aka fatlever aka pleezebelieve, he's already gotten exposed.

Glove_20 is a moron. "Hey look at me, I'm going to start a top 10 all time list and post a bunch of purrdy pictures and not rank them in any specific order because I don't want to get criticized. I will bump my thread every half an hour by saying "So does everyone agree with my list, is it perfect?." Glove is pure garbage.
