The King of Belch, proud owner of a -800 vote tally should be banned. Today. He's an idiot at best and more likely a troll that adds nothing to the boards or the site.
Some of his work:
Tressel Gets it, UM Doesn't, as Usual
And neither do UM fans, all aghast in snobbery.
We may never beat them again.
They get a special joy out of this rivalry, don't they? They just enjoy beating Michigan--and they've had a lot of practice at that lately.
I hate 'em; always have. But they do things that show they really, REALLY know what this game is all about (insert usual Michigan Fan myopic Cooper Years reference here).
This isn't a cherry-picked example. In fact, as far back as I looked, the aforementioned "King of Belch" does nothing other than belch vitriol and negativity. If anyone can link to a single constructive post he has ever made I'd be shocked. The points people earn serve a purpose, they call attention to trolls like this one.
I've voiced controversial opinions and been "negged" for it, and I've been in the minority more often than not. And I haven't managed to garner nearly the amount of negative points as this poster has. This isn't a case where someone commonly has a minority or controversial point of view, this is a case where someone purposefully spouts inflammatory comments. In my opinion, someone should drop the hammer and get this guy out of here.
Read his stuff. If you think he shouldn't be banned voice your support. If you think he's a troll, voice that as well.
EDIT: So far exactly zero votes for a ban. I guess that's that.
2nd EDIT: Congratulations to the King of Belch, he has generated more comments than any MGoBoard thread since September 21, with none of them calling for a ban.
