    Just a heads-up, not all of these people (MTwoOne) left the forum due to the Nets migration. Perhaps I am taking your post the wrong way.

    Also, if you want to start making threads in the OT forum I would be glad to add to them and start making my own. As a community we can resurrect the "out of use" forums.

    FIRE IT UP!

    to be clear, some of those friends got banned because they were pushing the envelope and trying to see how far they could go by being complete jerks in the forums and basically taunting admins to ban them for their actions.

    So they finally did enough to get banned and IMO deservedly so. I don't even think I was an admin at a time, but I could see they were pushing for a ban and daring anyone to do it with their smarmy comments, pot shots at members and subversive posts. Basically it looked like they go bored and decided to be shit disturbers of the highest degree.

    when they were not being like that they were great members too, making their actions the bigger shame.

    I swear, for some reason people believe that the people "in-charge" are always corrupt. Why would the staff at S2 lie? What would we gain? I can truthfully say that what we tell you is what happened. If Denny was completely lying about the whole reason for the Nets migration you think one admin would pipe-up and tell every the real truth.

    There was a period when a mod was telling GMJigga & co. what was going on in the administrative forum which created a lot of heat between the members and moderators. If a moderator had a negative opinion against a Nets user, which is bound to happen, the Nets user would of mysteriously found out.

    It's actually quite funny how sour some of the ex-Nets members are towards S2 and myself. I'm hated over there for no apparent reason. Any ideas, Dumpy?

    It's a shame that the Nets forum left, but I believe it would of happened even if the Blazers didn't join.

    In your first sentence, I don't understand the meaning of "over there." Regardless, I can't speak for anyone but myself. I don't hate you. To be honest, every time someone changes their handle, I typically have no idea who they used to be, so they essentially "start over" in my eyes. For all I know, you're me in the future.

    As I said, the Blazers forum had nothing to do with the Nets migration, although, since I was given the opportunity, I decided to voice my own personal disappointment that the Blazers community declined to branch out across the entire site.

    I only spoke up because I felt the old Nets community was being disrespected. If you disagree with that assessment, that's fine; there's no need to say anything else.

    I miss the guys fron the nets board and had no idea that the Blazer board was somehow wrapped up in that or even rumored to be.

    It a good fast site with minimal ads . . . Blazer posters should be encouraged to sufr the whole site in hopes of bringing more NBA fans to this site.

    Anything Blazer fans can do to bring the old nets gang back, or has that ship sailed?

    I have no personal axe to grind against you, Denny, and I don't want to turn this thread into a tussle between us. Obviously, you're comfortable with your role in what went down, and I don't judge people. But why you'd write something as boorish as "they have their own little site now, and good for them" is beyond me. However, you have been misled on more than one thing. I have no ownership in NetsDaily, and am not even a mod on the forum there. From time to time I contribute to their blog, but I haven't done so for at least nine months at this point. Also, I don't think the word "conspire" means what you think it does. Despite what you've been told, plans to develop a forum on NetsDaily were only advanced after my friends were already banned from S2. Speaking of which, where is Petey these days?

    Unfortunately, the posters you'd remember have been mostly IP banned here. But you are more than welcome to come visit us on our site.

    Ah yes, I forgot about the name change. MainEvent would be I, and he be me while I take the eye of his eye molding him into I and I into him. Capiche?

    I believe only KC, GMJigga, and War_Poet were the main people that were IP banned. If I'm not mistaken, Pegs still has an account here that isn't banned.

    Yeah, there's really no reason why you guys can't pop in every now and then... Unless you're IP banned, of course.

    That seems fairly accurate.
