    Default DA_SMASH - General Forum Question

    SOmebody just recycled an old thread it looks like was started by DaSmash.

    That's a name that goes way back to the mid 90's on the Star Board.

    I know Smash was banned from here.

    Smash had great passion for the Pacers and would often ruffle feathers.

    I'm guessing because he was banned the majority reaction on here will be good ridence. We don't want that type of abrasivness on here etc etc.

    I just have one question for you. When DaSmash was posting whether you agreed with him or not, believed in sources or not... did you find yourself always reading those threads?

    Were'nt those some of the most entertaining threads even if all you or others did was to log in to argue with him.

    Admittedly I'm biased...I always enjoyed Smash back in the day and was sorry to read he was banned from here.

    There are those of us that believe having some spice to the forum makes it more entertaining.

    Thoughts?

    I thought he was annoying, which may or may not be ironic.

    Who dat?

    The admins here are EXTREMELY tolerant and give multiple chances before banning. Their decisions are usually right on the money.

    Annoying, yes, but I always read it for pure entertainment value. When I first saw his posts on the Star back in the day, I'd be all mad. He acted like he was David Morway, if David Morway was a professional wrestler.

    Then you realized he was just some guy trying to get attention, it made it a little different perspective.

    Then the more you read it, you realized what it was and you enjoyed it for the entertainment value.

    I had no idea he was banned, I knew he hadn't been here in awhile.

    I kept waiting for a post about something like how Kyle Korver will dominate for Philadephia next year (he's in Utah now) and how the Charlotte HORNETS really won't be good with Chris Paul and Adam Morrison playing for Micheal Jordan, unless they trade with the Vancouver Grizzles. And then get all mad when people disagree.

    I didn't like the constant Laker fans who kept shoving Crittenden down our throats last summer, but the Smash was harmless to me.

    Maybe he went over the line and deserved being banned, I'm sure, but I miss his nonsense.

    Obnoxious is the first word that comes to my mind.

    The poster who said were going to trade for Gerald Wallace and then cut him?
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    I meant more that it depends on how annoying you think I am.

    But, yeah, I also have waaaay too many spoons.

    Yep! it was part of his team by team break down of trades for the Pacers I think. There were some other things in there that were from like 2 months before, if I remember. It was like he was writing an article, put it on hold, and then came back to it and posted it. Weird stuff.

    Your presence in this thread is pretty damn ironic.

    Wasn't this guy one of the Laker trolls?

    On the note of this topic, I call for a return of Y2J. Not sure why he was banned, but I enjoyed his posts.

    DaSmash dared us to ban him one too many times, and we finally obliged.

    I didn't have any problem with DaSmash personally, but his overwhelming sense of entitlement and talking down to everyone as if they were morons did not mesh well here at all.

    I'll take a look over at Rats occasionally and I don't think I've seen him there either.

    There are plenty of Pacers boards out there, Real GM, RATS, etc.

    Many of those boards enjoy a looser feel where insults and hyperbole are commonplace. Some members who enjoy that kind of environment might be better off elsewhere.

    PD just goes its own way, and I for one appreciate that.

    I wasn't giving you guys feedback as much as I was attempting to generate conversation.

    I feel like this being moved is out of line.

    Well, this doesn't have anything to do with the pacers or even sports for that matter.

    He's right. The feedback board has always doubled as a public place to ask questions such as the one you raised.
