and it is always very short posts like saying "I agree"...or "word"...or "DAMN YOU GOT OWNED!!!".....just ignore them

Exactly what i was thinking too. Especially with choice B.

Another thing i hate is when some unknown person makes a thread and there is ONE funny comment in it then they go "LOL OMG this thread is classic!!" and then every 5 posts they come back with the icon and say "classic stuff!!"

allow me diffuse the beef....

hippos is a decent poster, but his OP in this thread was quite offensive so I responded with vigor

the participation of little-known posters in argumentative or polarizing threads is welcomed because they are like the unbiased consumer, and which sides they end up taking is often amusing and reflects the charisma or whatever of whichever "veteran" poster that drew them in to their side. An audience is always appreciated, and an animated and opinionated one is even better.

I feel hippos is just saying "yep i've spent years accumulating 10K+ posts on this board, so if you havn't dedicated years and years to this board and don't have thousands of posts you don't belong in important threads"

You have no clue what I said obviously. Another reason why posters with hardly any posters ruin beef threads: You can't judge if they have half a brain to be making any judgement in the first place. Then you get one of the dude's beefing laughing at this fool's remarks just because the fool backed them.

Some dude's hear would have made Bruinlove their boyfriend if he backed them before they realized how stupid he was.

I feel he is saying that when 2 or 3 posters with 5k+ posts are smak talking with each other it is annoying when some newb decides to jump in the mix and post something like "OH MAN, YOU GOT OWNED!!!", or "I agree, he is an idiot"...

when it is really not your arguement to begin with and no one gives a damn what you think...

I find it funny that people are bragging about being the "Top Members" of an internet basketball forum. Like they're too cool for the "other posters" and everyone wants to be e-like them . This ain't high school you queers. You got problems if you take this internet forum crap serious.

Re-read my first few posts.

After you do, say you're sorry for not taking English class seriously in high school.

I'll give you the same advice.

Kind of hard to take you seriously when as a rule no one appreciates your presence on ISH. Kinda like Hitler dissing everyone and expecting people to say "Gee Hitler, you sure do make a swell point!"

you haven't noticed the weekly threads of "who is the best/worst poster here" ???

yeah, some do take it as a popularity contest I guess...

When I first came here I never really tried to win other people over....I just liked to argue and talk trash with the Mavs/Dirk haters...


now I rarely post in the main forum.....it seems like the same Kobe vs. Lebron talk over and over and over....

ISH IS A REPULBLIC

There are definately cliques on ish. People might just say "oh, it's the internet, what does it matter, but it DOES matter a little bit." In 2002, there mightve been a serious stimga for those who frequented message boards, but for many, it's a consistent way of communication, much like talking on the phone.

For some people, like myself, I'm in "football country." There are very few people here that are interested in the NBA, and none of my friends could care less. ISH is my outlet for NBA talk, and there are certain people that I trust to impart good knowledge on this forum.

We shouldn't discriminate against newer posters, but we do to an extent. We usually just turn to the sources that we trust. People don't have to do outrageous things to get noticed. Someone signs up today and posts in a respectable manner, they WILL get noticed.

This is as good as admitting you were wrong. I was hoping for "Well I guess I didn't read what you actually typed. I jumped the gun. I was silly. Sorry."

This will have to do however.
