You just can't get this type of discussion anywhere but mgoblog. You guys are the only people who say what I'm thinking, which is simultaneously creepy, calming and cathartic.
OT: It's confession time - how many of you have created more than one account on MGoBlog?
It is ridiculous, and yet simultaneously not ridiculous, and there is no way to know whether it will remain ridiculous from one moment to the next.
Yeah, yeah ...
Unprovoked shots at you, shots at me. Everybody kills people.
I'm Magnus too.
Magnus is His Dudeness?
His Dudeness is Magnus?
IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.
I warned you, Dude. I've been pretty lenient up until now but its gotta stop. I know taking your points doesn't have real-world implications but c'mon, man. It'd be so lame to have to get Brian and Seth involved. Just be cool, Honey Bunny.
HOW IS THAT A PERSONAL ATTACK? It is literally what Magnus does.
It had nothing to do with the story and I threw it in as a joke AND IT IS THE TRUTH. Jesus what the hell is going on here? What do you want this online commenting community to be exactly?
John W. Commentor: I believe Michigan is great
Jane L. Commenetor: I too believe that Michigan is great.
John W. Commentor: I think Hoke may have gotten a bad haircut.
Jane L. Commentor: I am going to hunt you down and destroy your family so that you may never extend your genes freely amongst the masses.
This is a fucking joke.
I know what it was. Its was said in jest but couple that with the previous discussion and your position and it was clearly an attack. Magnus said he thinks is was funny but its not. I've liked you for a long time and I've been on your side on lots of discussions. But its not cool to Magnus. Did I overreact? Maybe so. That's why your points are coming back next month.
Thanks for having a sense of humor (I think).
I REALLY don't have a dog in this fight. But your judgment lately (this obvious overreaction, the two-hour NO TE'O nonsense) has been sort of iffy.
On the other hand, you prefer BF3 to CoD, which is good judgment. Lot of ins and outs here.
Agreed, I've spent almost three weeks being unable to ineffectively inform people of how idiotic their comments are via downvoting. It really takes away your masculinity when you can't mark everything you disagree with as trolling.
Thanks for your feedback. My tolerance lately has been sort of iffy and I've contemplated going all BiSB up in this b-tch several times. I sat through the last thread with Dude and Rager ganging up on Magnus over and over and it pissed me off. This most recent one put me over the edge at least with respect to this issue. But maybe this is my Waterloo.
I find your use of "ganging up" ... ... disturbing.
You can't leave the ship. Someone has to steer this thing.
/says the guy who bribed his way onto one of the first lifeboats with like 8 people on it.
Actually, JGB is pretty damn good. Better than me, most definitely. Fresh meat. LOL
This could have been us (you and me):
Not that my opinion means anything, but I think you and BiSB are both good mods. It's a big forum and I'm sure it's a (typically) thankless and (occasionally) stressful job. Don't leave, maybe take a step back. IMO Bolivia is for McFarlin and his ilk and PEOPLE WHO JOKE ABOUT KOZAN AND DIGGS IT WAS NEVER FUNNY, not benevolent goofballs like Herm and His Dudeness.
Man fuck this bitch I work on Wall Street dammit I'll rip on Magnus's lazy ass all I want he's just some dood creepin' and probably only coaches for 2 hours a day and I'm unappreciative of all he does so I'll make fun of him on the internet while simultaneously reminding people how much money I make on Wall Street.
Oops, sorry, I thought I was signed in as my other handle, Mr. Rager. disregard the above.
I honestly don't get why we need mods to begin with. Let people say what they want to say. What are the real-life implications of His Dudeness taking a shot at Magnus? If an anonymous person has issues about what another anonymous poster says about them on the internet, they need to rethink some things. I just don't get it...
(not saying Magnus or His Dudeness feel this way - just using them as examples)
I'm pretty sure lawlessness isn't the answer.
But what do I know. I'm Roman, direct descendant of Caesar.
There are no real life implications for me, but as far as the board goes, it's not a good environment when you have people insulting each other left and right. It can create a lot of clutter on the board. In some ways, the mods here are the difference between discussing Michigan football on Twitter/Facebook comments on newspaper sites and discussing Michigan football on message boards. There are mods on almost every Michigan discussion board (Wolverine Nation, GoBlueWolverine, The Wolverine, etc.) and Brian chose this over Haloscan (for numerous reasons, not just moderating), so there must be a reason for it.
The blog is pretty heavily intertwined with the university at this point, and there is a chance if things spiral out of control that Brian could lose access.
Not a good description. We have a defined involvement as an independent media. If I ever call someone within Fort Schembechler I use the same phone numbers that they university makes publicly available. All press conferences are televised and they even publish transcripts of them. Media access can be granted or taken away, and while we wouldn't screw that up for something stupid (like for example letting a false rumor about a player stand on the board), they know we're not going to change our coverage for them.
I've stuck with this one the whole time despite spending many months in Bolivia.
My other account is M-Wolverine.
So I can give myself five points every time I post.
[edit:] sorry it took so long to get to five points on this one guys. it really is difficult remembering all those passwords sometimes..
I'll admit, I've made a few other accounts. 0517 of them actually. You'll never guess what they were named, though.
Come talk to me when you have made another 965. Do the math... Braylon wouldn't let me have the #1...
This is actually my second account. When I first found the site, I joined under my real name, cause that's what I thought everyone did. I quickly realized my mistake, never posted, and then signed up under Lionsfan.
My other one is still probably in the system too
I would rather use my social security number for an account name than admit to being a Lions fan.
if em0 still hangs around here as a respectable MGoCitizen. I suppose I could set a trap and start a thread entitled "Anyone have a projected depth chart for 2016?" and see who appears.
This is my only one, although I think there's a guy called Blue Badger who hangs around these parts ... sometimes I wonder if I'm also him. Like if maybe I'm the modern Wisconsin equivalent of a werewolf - I get mind-shatteringly drunk on PBR & brandy old fashioneds, take on a new personality, sign onto an alternate Mgoblog account I was never even aware I made, & post insightful things with no memory of ever doing so. I mean, it's possible.
There is some satisfaction getting out of Bolivia on your own.
Making a new account is for pussies!
To be fair I think plenty of us contributed to your, "evacuate Bolivia" movement.
I have hundreds. Sometimes entire threads are me arguing with myself. About half the comments on this thread are mine.
I don't have multiple accounts anymore. I take medicine for that now.
I will admit.. I NEARLY created a new account just minutes after I created my first one due to the fact that I couldn't figure out why in the world I created a username that not only states my real name but also begins with "Corky;" I have no idea what I was on at the time.
I'm committed, though, and I plan on riding this thing to the end.
I am Taco Pants.
I wish I came up with TPryor... but I did not.
I pondered an alt back during the RR and anti-RR split camps. I was thinking of using it solely to comment on the coaching since it seemed like the moment you went public in one camp, people from the other camp instantly negbombed all future posts. In the end I sucked it up and just went on record with this account and nothing bad happened.
I'm pretty sure a number of people do have multiple accounts and use one just for touchy subjects, but they do a poor job disguising their writing style and it is easy to link the accounts together.
Were you going to be Korean and tell stories about your spouse's weird ginger family?
I don't remember pro-RR stuff getting downvoted here. Ever. Just like pro-Beilien stuff pretty much never gets downvoted here. Anti-Beilien stuff is generally downvoted into invisibility almost immediately.
For better or for worse, this site is very pro CurrentHeadCoach.
Allintime23. I matter not one bit. I don't even know how many mgo points I have. I'm here for the info the perspective and the humor. I am also an alcoholic and fall hard in nights like last. I only have one profile.
I want to know who Buzz Killington's alter ego is.
I am known as Hugh Jass - but I also go by the name Hugh Jaweener as well.....I'm just saying
