MKMOT (August 22, 2012)

Hey, Anon guy. Don't think I don't see you, coming around and taking shots at Guys Who have been among the best in the biz since you were born underneath that bridge. I may have leaned back, put my feet up, and let the "legends" handle their own business, but now let's talk about mine. 

Mine is driven by readability. And you're not helping. See, there is a way to do what you're trying to do, and actually be of value to this place, however shameful that may be. But well, you just aren't good enough. Until you show improved skills, such as the ability to narrow your focus, provide specific examples to support whatever inane rant you're on, and generally foster some interesting and readable discussions, my itchy trigger finger will only be scratched by the delete button. Oh, and put a fucking name on it. Even a Guy Who, for chrissakes. We're trying to have some standards over here.

Vent. Debate. Troll intelligently. There's a space for you below. It's open.

  1. I just skimmed the Deadspin sidebar and for a brief, glorious moment, I thought that Graham Spanier was doing a chat. Maybe next time.

  2. DRATS. Looks like Barry's attempt to make parasonic care was far too feeble. Perhaps next time, Barry. Perhaps next time.

    1. Good lord, that post is full of Yahoo and ESPN type shit. Even EMS got a reply about proper pruning of the tree.

  3. The comments in "Why Your Teams Sucks" series of posts have been glaringly atrocious this year. I blame Kinja for encouraging the trolls. For the most part, I agree with Shitehawk about not feeding the trolls, but sometimes they get taken down in an entertaining manner. See Exhibit A.

  4. Yesterday, Phintastic said some pretty hateful things about me. He and I have always been tight, and since I feel like somehow I contributed to this outburst, I'm going to be the bigger man, and give Phin an opportunity to apologize in the replies below.

    I feel like he deserves this small gesture.

  5. Are we going to play nice during the live chat today, or should we give him the "Guy Who" treatment for not putting his fucking name to it?

    1. I really don't care for this little feature.

      The start time, end time, and pace of posts is highly variable. Why are we bitching about it?

    2. Word. Remember when this place was highbrow???

      God, I miss those 1000 word comments about kinja. Everything is all goofy and satirical now.

      Don't forget- wine and cheese at my house after MacNeil/Lehrer.

  8. Hi Marv. I just wanted to say that I think you're doing a commendable job dealing with the "Guys Who Wear Panties," Guys Who Still Fry Ants With A Magnifying Glass," and "Raysism" here on the balog. Don't think for a second that when I get home at the end of a long work day in this unbearable, lava-pit of a fucked up Summer, I don't appreciate your estimable efforts to keep IMG's baby alive.

    If you're taking music requests for this gem, I'd like to nominate Volbeat - Heaven Nor Hell. The video sucks, but it's a good "start your day off with some harmonica, and segue way into a snappy little guitar hook" ditty.
