No, dipshit, you don't make compelling points. You start a debate with your answer already, and you're unwillingly to understand the alternative point of view. If you made a thread called "Is Wes Welker a system player?" and presented your side, along with reasons for the other side, and then allowed others to contribute with some back and forth, we wouldn't mind. Instead, you start immediately with your point of view and ridicule anyone who says otherwise. You're a either a very dedicated troll or a pathetically self-absorbed jackass.

This is my only forum. You, however, search the Internet for any football forum where you can spout your ridiculous claims. It seems like your life's pleasure to fellate T.O. and bash Wes Welker. Me, I just use this place to pass the time as I sit in front of a computer screen 40 hours a week.

And another point, don't you ever find it odd that everywhere you go, people dislike you? Maybe you should think about changing the way you put your message out there. And does it pique your interest that nobody on any forum ever agrees with you? Very often people think they are smarter than everyone else. They think they are right and EVERYONE else is wrong. More often than not, the lone wolf is thet actual fool.

you're displaying a fundamental misunderstanding of what freedom of speech means. you have every right to go anywhere you want and say whatever you want, without the government prosecuting you for saying it. you don't have those rights on private property, and you never have. but then, knowing that requires at least a junior high level civics education.

Can we do this? I'd be down for Welker week. Maybe when he gets inducted to the HoF. His production is just too much to ignore.

And now hes just a product of the "Denver system".

Also freedom of speech is null and void on someone's website, specifically when you sign an agreement to follow those rules in order to create a user name.

Didn't Troy Brown play in a completely different system?

I'm waiting for him to now say Brady is the system.

Can we just talk about how awesome Troy Brown is? Probably my favorite Patriot. The year he played offense and defense (as a starter on both) and special teams was amazing. I love that guy.

I still play NFL 2K5 with the roster update where he's at corner on the Pats. Makes things so much more fun and difficult when you play against you evil bastards (I mean that in a good-ish way).

No, you make your points and you never consider that maybe, just maybe, you're exposing viewpoints that are very off the cuff. If you opened with something like "I know this is drastically different from how the majority sees things, and I understand why they feel the way they do, but here is how I see it...", you wouldn't be such a thorn in our sides. Basically, this:

That's a lot of justification for having as many posts on this board as you do. I don't know whom you're trying to convince.

Nobody is universally liked, and I would never want to be. I have plenty of supporters, too.

More often than not, people fall victim to groupthink and spiral of silence and propaganda.

Well when you get into an argument with a mod about cursing, which is breaking the rules whether you think it should be a rule or not, when you agreed to follow said rules upon registering on this site, people will probably call you a troll. Swearing isn't making your points any stronger and wrongly bringing up the freedom of speech thing is absolutely pathetic, or at least rather a display of how un "intelligent" you really are.

There's no reason to ban anything that isn't blatant racist propaganda or something of that nature.

then he is certainly welcome to write a formal email to scott and discuss it with him. ideally he would avoid trying to give scott a nazi salute, but we all have our own methods of communication. some more effective than others.

There doesn't even have to be any reason behind. Its Scott's website, and he can enforce any rules he see's fit. The fact that this has turned into another topic change for Taber to whine about says alot about his argument in the first place.

Why wouldn't you implement more rules? Swearing is apparently vawy, vawy bad. Maybe bashing Wes Welker is, too.

They're similar because they all involve words.

you're displaying a fundamental misunderstanding of what freedom of speech means. you have every right to go anywhere you want and say whatever you want, without the government prosecuting you for saying it. you don't have those rights on private property, and you never have. but then, knowing that requires at least a junior high level civics education.
This has nothing to do with rights. It has to do with the fundamental flaw in censorship. This forum has the right to censorship, just as Neo-Nazis have the right to start up their own forums and make whatever rules they wish.

You can stoop to that level if you want, but it says more about you than it does about me.

Did Taber just blow up his own freedom of speech argument?

There's no reason to ban anything that isn't blatant racist propaganda or something of that nature.
See the thing is... a lot of that has already been cracked down on because of advertisements. Not that I truly care but the "Hot Chick Thread" was deleted for that reason. So why would Scott allow things that are going have him to lose money and ultimately cause the shutting down of the site?

I'm not sure what the big deal is with the censors. Granted, I use less profanity than the average poster so it doesn't affect me as much. But is it really that hard dto understand why words are censored? It's all about money. Advertisers want their advertisments to reach the widest audience possible. Rampany profanity would drive away many people. Fewer readers equates to fewer advertisers which equates to less money in Scott's pockets. It's the same reason the Hot Chick Thread was deleted. Just capitalism at work.

Also freedom of speech is null and void on someone's website, specifically when you sign an agreement to follow those rules in order to create a user name.
1. Look at his numbers with New England vs. Denver.

2. Every receiver Peyton Manning plays with is going to be productive. That's how good Manning is at reading defenses and calling audibles.

3. Like most people, I don't read terms and conditions...especially when it involves things as unimportant as message boards.

Yeah, we're all aware of that. That it's not an illegal rule doesn't make it any less dumb and devoid of logic.

Why are users not be able to read the word '****' but are able to see pics of pornstars in thongs?
