For entertainment purposes only. I did not realize whoever defended Ron got banned. How did I slip through the cracks. Boy that Hicks guy sounds like a real jerk

Who's on Pacersdigest here?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was...but was banned because of some bs...The owner had some grudge against me...
who here is on there?

JOneal7

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i was on there for a week until i found this place, didnt really post, just wanted to see what people were saying.

itgoesbuzz


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was there when they first started but the power of the admins quickly went to their heads. It's not a good Pacer discussion site imho.

Golgac1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah. I registered there, but never posted anything and rarely visit anymore. A few of the posters make decent observations, but, I'm not quite sure why, but too many people over there annoy me.

Plus, I like having the fans of other teams here. I just wish the trolls would leave.

Cudeigra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

yes the admins over there let the power go to their head. Esp. Hicks...And sad thing is that's all he does. He didn't setup or pay for the site.
They have cliques...and if you arent in them...then your an outcast...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, it's funny how they started that board because they were tired of the over zealous admin that used to be here. Now the place is run by Hicks, who is wildly over zealous.

I've seen him toss many a person for no good reason and give them no chance to discuss the matter.

Over zealous? Yes.

Very strong clique? Yes.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, Don't defend ron over there. Or your tossed...if you don't agree with them...then it's over...they tossed a bunch of good posters due to the fact they "Challenged" their authority....
Hicks is just power hungry

JOneal7
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For what it is worth I visit both sites and each has its positives and negatives.
If you want amusement due to troll involvement this is the place to be.
I laugh with some of the things posted. There are good posters here.
I do believe exellent discussion is present on digest and I really like some of
the insight posters have there. If you go postal on someone at digest you
probably will be banned and that is fine. Keep it civil as it should be here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I mainly go to PD to read Peck & UncleBuck's posts. Former posters here whose opinions I always found interesting. I like to get their take on things.

Don't post much there. Just hard to break into a new board. I'm used to this one.

GO BIG RED

I post there, and i'm not in any cliques...I see plenty of Artest posts from both "trade him" and "keep him" camps.

Bottom line...if you want troll free posting...go there. Many posters there also post here, and some of the same threads exist in both places. If you can work your way around the trolls, then post here.

I get tired of people coming here to complain about PD. If you read the one-sided posts of those that get banned from there...it's always the same complaint..."oh, Hicks is a jerk"..."They just don't like me over there so they banned me". If you got banned, it was for good reason. Don't go blaming someone else. You don't have to admit anything here...you only have to be honest with yourself.

I will also mention that the mods over there OWN the site! It's theirs! They can ban you for no reason at all, and they have to answer to no one! If that bothers you, then why even put any more thought to the site? Why not just leave and go somewhere that you enjoy?!?!
Let me offer an analogy...you came to my house, and I let you in. Then later on, I decided to throw you out...it doesn't matter what reason I give you...I could have not liked something you said...I could have taken a dislike to your shoes...or the car you drove up in...all pointless reasons...but it doesn't matter...IT'S MY HOUSE!!! Same thing there. There's no reason to go to the neighbors and complain about my kicking you out...just go somewhere else!

I wasn't banned and they pretty much (most of the admins not the posters) are jerks. Sorry if that hurts your feelings.

Uh Gee ya think. Let the original poster get some feelings off his chest. He just wanted to rant a little. It's no big deal.

I was the friggin former Most Fanatic Poster of the year...they banned me because I challenged hicks.
Don't defend your team either...or you will be banned. They HATE people who try showing them up or saying there opinion is wrong.

He also has every right to complain about the moderators or posters there. So, feel free to be bothered, but the nice thing about this site is that we don't have to care.

I'm not sure how Bball and Peck and UB have managed to post for so long, what with no allowance for differing opinions. Or maybe it's not allowing personal attacks.

Nah, that couldn't be it.

Meh. If they want to believe JONeal7's one-sided rants, that's their perogative. It's just odd that he posted this now, considering he's been banned for several weeks now. Seems to me that he and Sassan are basically complaining to the RATS forum that they're forced to post over there... :crazy:

Tinsleyfan11
05-12-2005, 11:57 PM
This is all funny.I don't understand why they got banned i have been viewing this board for like a year now and i think you guys were a little un fair to sassan and Jo 7.

Hicks
05-12-2005, 11:58 PM
Damn. I'm a real *******. I sure hate everyone that is a real Pacers fan, that much is clear. Unclebuck, since I'm tired, I'll ban you tomorrow morning instead of right now; so get your posts in now while you can. ;)

Some still seem confused over why certain members aren't around anymore. If they really don't know, give me a PM and I'll do my best to explain.

In the meantime, I have to get back to eating babies, worshiping satan, and re-arranging all my nazi paraphernalia in between sniping at real pacer fans who ride together.....

And after some background checking, now I know why you've been saying this, and why you seemed familiar. Hello and goodbye, RM8325.

*edit* And, judging by the legibility of the post, I'm guessing another loaner to Sassan.

Hicks
05-13-2005, 12:09 AM
I wouldn't swear to it but didn't he start calling people like Jay (he's the one I remember - us non-Pacer fans got to stick together) of being racist because he wasn't a Ron supporter and said something positive about Foster.

At least I remember a thread where someone went off calling people racists 3-4 times.

They've called people racist, they've (mainly JO7) acted racist, acted homophobic, been extremely rude/vulgar to other posters over disagreements, and otherwise been damned obnoxious.

Each received at least 2 "2nd chances" to shape up, and each time they reverted to form within a week or two.

Funny how they always seem to "forget" that part when they cry on RATS about the other admins and myself.

It wasn't rude or inconsiderate at all. I know how it was intended and if someone possesses a keen sense of humor, then they certainly have the ability to laugh at themselves. Something you might want to work on. I'm sure grace can handle herself and can easily deflect a harmless remark. Or she could have simply ignored it. Perhaps you should stop administering advice, especially when your opinion isn't asked for.

And before a moderator deletes this or warns me, understand that I've never engaged DD on this forum, but he seems to like to take cheap shots at me from time to time without provocation.

I wouldn't worry about it (as I know everyone here won't). Most of everything said there was ridiculous.

However, I will say that I have noticed some cliques here, but those are hard to prevent on any messageboard. The members with the longest tenures seem to form an inseparable bond, but that ultimately leads to a tighter knit community. I will admit though, there are times when I feel left out, but I don't know why.

Anyway, Hicks, able, etc - don't let the RATS ranting get you down. Everyone here appreciates the hard work you put into this site. I'm thankful I have a place to engage in intelligent coversation regarding the Pacers and basketball in general.

It doesn't bother me; hasn't for a long time. It used to, back in the early days, but between RATS having gone down hill so much, no one I care about posting there anymore, and the fact that I've grown up about it, it rolls off my back pretty easily now.

Now I just think it's funny when posts like that crop up telling one-sided tales of my sinister methods.

It's the fact that a lot of your jokes/humor come across as the exact same thing that some of your posts disappear.

They come across as mean-spirited, not friendly. If that changes, so will the response, but in the meantime things probably won't change much.

Thanks for running this board. I really like it here. I go over to rats, but never post, and I always need to wash afterwards.

Those guys don't understand that yelling "fire" in a movie theater isn't free speech. Unfortunately the internet has provided a forum for all those who, if they acted like that in person, would get beat up a lot. "Disagree without being disagreeable" is the antithesis of their intellect.

I am not a jo7 or sassan fan and they're both free to spew their venom elsewhere. Those poor victims. :( Here's a smilie because I can't communicate without one. :-p
