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.
and that is what I think Hippos was trying to say...

it isn't really so much about your post count...it is about you trying to get noticed by jumping into other people's fights and just posting "YOU GOT OWNED" and stuff like that...

If someone with 5 posts decided to jump into an arguement of mine but it was a couple paragraphs of detailed information then it would be a different story....

ISH shouldnt be exclusive to only posters with thousands of posts. A lot of posters here are horrible and they have 3K+ posts. Wo cares if they chime in, just ignore them if you dont like them.

But it does get annoying bc ISH is becomming a troll fest as of late

Thank you. Now none of you fools has an excuse to take this in a different direction. This is all I was saying and I made it pretty clear. It's right in front of you. If you can't read, then that's your problem.

The ironic thing is, there are people who have several thousand posts that are still anonymous............

I've only seen lakerfreak post a few times, and he has over 10,000 (prob. in the Laker forum)

and Handle the Rock? When does he ever post these days?

and lakerdynasty? Who?

What pisses me off even more is that you actually think anyone gives a damn what you think. No I don't care if you agree with poster A or think poster B is an idiot. You're an idiot for thinking anyone cares. Poster A doesn't even like you or want to know you. Poster C hopes you get IP banned.

Every thread now it seems these fools who have been lurking forever have decided to come out of the wood work. Get back in that wood you ****ing termites.

Your opinion is worthless unless at least one person actually remembers one of your posts. It's like a person who's face was melted off in a fire claiming you're ugly. You don't deserve an opinion. You deserve to have Lex Steele's ***** shoved through one ear and out the other with a rubber on, thus acting as an insulator and stopping the few electical charges your brain produces.

We all know who the posting elite are on ISH, and they usually never get into retarded message board fights [curse those handsome devils].

I agree, it is turning into a troll-fest. Guys like GOAT:MANU and starface should be banned IMO, but Jeff is probably really busy and doesn't have time to clear the board of trolls. There are too many threads nowadays with people constantly bashing each other back and forth, and when the trolls do it it's even more annoying. I just try to ignore those threads these days, though when I joined ISH I admit I exemplified a lot of what hippos alluded to in this thread.

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!"
What, do you think his grammar is bad?

No. It's actually pretty easy to understand what I was getting at. There's a possibility you were just playing around so I'll let you try again.:)
