Here comes Jay. He's our man. If Jay can't do it, can't nobody can!
Jay, how dare you?
I for one welcome our new Jay overlord. I'd like to remind him that as a trusted MGo personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in his underground Nate Robertson torture chambers.
Jay has a grandma/secretary ass, no question.
I had no idea, I hadn't looked at the point totals for a while I guess. Jesus, how does that even happen?
Or maybe he's just a good poster
You know, I noticed the other day he had 3000 and some, and I couldn't figure it out. I couldn't recall even ever noticing his posts.
Has somebody been upvoting EVERYTHING he posts? Does Jay have an alternate identity, the masked voter?
It's really not that difficult. Look at his posts. They aren't particularly witty or insightful yet every one of them is +5-10..
I sense an MGoPoint-Gate
And how, exactly, would someone "have your boys" upvote everything? Do you think he sends out a super secret email to all of his "boys" to make sure they + all of his comments?
Perhaps it's because he generally keeps a level head and doesn't overreact about every MSM story out there? Naw, you're probably right bouje. Boooooooo-jay!
Indeed. Seriously, it was a joke. I really can't claim to remember any of his posts, though.
I think it's the lack of avatar. He needs one.
And brought it up. Here was my theory. Although it does appear most of his points have 13-17 points.
It's like the cool kids in high school all over again.
Damn I wish I had a prom date if only I took Jay or Dex maybe I'd get +5 every time I posted no matter how pointless or stupid it is.
Bouje, don't hate just don't participate. Jay has been around the Blog a few times, give him his Due. Others obviously have!!!
Man, I wish I could +1000 you.
If you up vote yourself on every post you'd triple the point value. Unless you don't get points for voting for yourself.
have no lives and no friends.
People that down-vote themselves are cool.
Dex got 5 points just for being supportive of him. And those who were critical got negged. Jay definitely has some buddies on here. Either that or multiple accounts.
I love Grandpa Simpson
I think dex got those points because he was sort-of mocking Jay's typically negative (although admittedly far less so lately) view on things.
Just so we're clear, I don't care in the slightest about MGoPoints, as long as I'm above 20, and am just having fun.
(But I am going to up-vote myself for this post)
Here's 2 more points. Bet you had no idea what was waiting for you at 500!!!
Jay has been on MGoBlog forever - going back to the haloscan days, and his opinions show that he generally doesn't give a shit what people thing of him - he's not one to upvote all his own posts in an MGoPoint-grab.
Is this a glitch in the system? Why not just fix it?
He provides some balance to the blog and certainly is not one prone to drink the cool aid.
Good to have balance. Though it's fun to drink the kool aid some times, too. :)
He got +18 on the comment linked to by Court Wenley. I've never seen anyone get +18 for anything short of a masterful, long, well-researched post. Methinks shenanigans.
The one guy that posted the picture of the Shamwow All in for Michigan towel got like 40 points and every one of them was deserved.
Pictures tend to do that... I think I got +25 for posting the pic of the whale on the Charlie Weis goes to the beach thread.
Don't talk about Big Brother that way. They'll neg you in your sleep!
Bouje you are part of the bourgeois and the WLA and their Karl Marx klan are going to get you again.
At over 5 points a letter, that has to be some kind of MGoBlog record.
I did not create this thread so that it could devolve into people whining about secret friends. We all have secret friends, mine happens to live in the place where the batteries go for the remote that came with my TV. It was left vacant once I started to use my cable remote for everything, so I told him he could crash there for a while.
Anyway, this thread was created so Jay could stand (or sit, as it were) and face his immoral behavior. I care not if he is supported by an upvoting army, only that he takes responsibility for his actions.
Preferably by MGoSeppuku.
Seriously. Why anyone cares that some guy has tons of MGoPoints is beyond me.
Honestly, this was all in jest. I don't really care about MGoPoints; I knew I would get negged just for posting this (and I was right).
The season is drawing near, and instead of yet another thread about 3 QBs I thought I would have some fun. I didn't go back through his posts and try to figure anything out. I had been wondering if anyone would eventually pass Brian though.
I had hoped that my overly flowerly language and weird tangents would show it's all just a joke. No hard feelings Jay (and your minions).
has ftty different mgoblog identities and is plussing himself into the lead. efact.
Maybe if Brian would post more, he would be in the lead and then this would not be a problem.
If Brian got points for his actual posts, it wouldn't be close.
Excuses. This means Brian needs to cede control of MGoBlog to Jay, right?
order to accumulate the points he has; he certainly doesn't post many comments. Checking, he gets 25 points for a "story." Whether that is near enough is another question - I suspect that Brian isn't really obsessing over the points he earns on his own blog.
Regardless, in the same vein of Jamiemac's comment - ITS ALL BRIAN'S FAULT!
I assume Brian can just set his points at whatever the fuck he wants.
Brian may be setting his points to entice posters to try and catch him, but never succeeding. Kind of like those dog races that have an electric rabbit moving ahead of the dogs running around the track.
But then Jay went and caught the fucking rabbit.
Ever seen what happens when the dog catches the rabbit? It's not pretty.
the dog race now, or metaphorically Jay, Brian and this blog?
Perhaps there's not much difference.
Jay has 4,328 points. Assuming that Jay spends 10 minutes on-line for each point (reading other posts, researching, etc.), that is 43,280 minutes. Or 720 Hours!!
At 8 hours per day, that is 90 Days!!
Well played, Jay. Well played.
All hail Jay!
All hail Jay!
sounds like a euphemism for masturbation, as in, "my mom didn't knock and she caught me upvoting myself."
Have any of you ever seen Jay and Brian together at the same time?
Jay is the account Brian uses to talk shit about Todd Jones.
Brian secretly has a seething hatred of Nate Robertson.
Succinct. Knowledegable. He's Jay
That up arrow is lit, he voted!
He's part of the conspiracy!
i dont feel the need to swith my alliance from brian to jay
you could upvote your own comments ... this is dumb
Yes, you can upvote your comments in the comment box and it will show up. It does not, however, affect your MGoPoint total.
But it would have been more honorable if you had first realized that you could downvote your own comments.
Let us not forget about Jay's doppleganger "Take You Down".
I think he might be behind MgoPointGate.
Think about it...Jay suddenly passes Brian for MgoPoints, we suspect Jay of cheating the system, anarchy rears its ugly head and leads us on history's largest negbang, Jay is sent to MgoHell, and Take You Down temples his fingers and quietly mutters "exellent".
Take You Down has already stolen Jay's avatar. Lets not allow him to steal his SOUL!
I've gone back and upvoted every post Jay has made since May. I felt the need to admit this because I'm thinking people might be getting a tad too serious about this.
I'm waiting for Jay to come make his acceptance speech as new ruler. I have a feeling it will be along the lines: "you people are idiots."
Clearly this is a travesty that cannot go unpunished. But we don't know who to blame.
So, since my two favorite things are being lazy and scapegoating, I'm going to blame the next person to post below me.
I AM SPARTACUS!
if anyone in this thread realllllly thinks Jay, of all posters, created multiple accounts to up vote himself ... then i'm sorry, you are retarded.
You sound like a serial killer's neighbor. "He kept to himself but was a very nice man." Except, you know, he doesn't keep to himself...and is the opposite of nice.
Jay has like 10 pages of continuous upvotes that aren't separated by more than a minute each.
What a mystery.
I figured you were joking above. I'd like to think you have better things to do with your time.
yeah I doubt this has anything to do with it
From 9:46 AM- 10:31 AM yesterday Jay got 340 points worth of upvotes without posting anything. From 11:30pm- 1:19am the night before Jay got another ~500 points worth of upvotes without posting anything. I don't care enough to go through more of Jay's Mgopoints pages, but I suspect there's a lot more of this.
I highly suspect Chitown, they always have dead people voting and what not. What else does he have to do, the Mets are a billon games out of it.
I mean, what else would she have to do at night?
I don't believe you.
