ESPN.COM: Silencing the Masses

It came to our attention that espn.com was allowing commentary on their site. We felt it would be a good platform to participate and even get a Super Bowl pick out there.

However, we found out first hand the repressive regime that is ESPN has no intention of allowing truthful and honest commentary on their site. And it begs the question, if we weren't NOIS, would they have deleted our post? Over 1,000 posts are there, yet one posted by NOIS was deleted post haste by the little alibaster hands of some cyber stormtrooper. This is what we posted, who on earth would this offend?

Sir,

I made a bet with my wife that if she sold more bean pies than I did this week, I'd let her have some space on my comment here. Well, she won. So I pass her the keyboard.

Gurl, I swear, all my man wanna do is make posts on his blog 'bout sports goings-on. Sports! Gurl, I gots needs. MAD needs, if ya feel me. And this man wanna be typing all the time. Mama gone lose her mind. Anyway, gurlfriend, you see Tyra Banks? How much weight she put on? But ya know what, she need some meat on dem bones. A grown woman got meat on her, am I right? Fa'sho! Now, ya'll need to go ahead and take the Bears and the points this weekend. That Peyton Manning child has him a funny, long neck. The last time a QB was playing in the Super Bowl with a funny, long neck....was Steve Grogan...and he got his azz beat down...by the Bears.

Jason Whitlock here - Considered yourself warned, bojangler!

And no discussion of long necks can take place without mention of Merton Hanks.

Sir, is that really you, Mr. Whitlock? My wife is a huge fan. She feeds me giant dinners in hopes of turning me into an overweight lovah.

Are you as one dimentional in real life as you are on here? Isnt there more to you than simply your race?

It doesnt appear so, as that is all you talk about. It's pathetic, really.

Sir, if all you have gotten out of the posts and comments on this blog is "race"...well, who is REALLY the one dimensional and silly one? Open your mind.

Hmm I think you're losing your raw-ness. Not only have your latest entries been lacking that biting satire and magnificent word choice of your older stuff, but now you have egregious misuse of phrases such as "...begs the question," which is a circular reasoning fallacy. What you should have said was, "raises the question," or "invites the question," etc.

"raw-ness"

Sir, is the hyphonated version of rawness a word? Or is it a circular reasoning fallacy?

I'm sorry but I have to admit I don't understand the question. To tell you the truth I don't know what "hyphonated" means. The closest I could come up with is hyphenated but surely that's not what you meant.

Sir, I thank you for correcting my spelling. In return, I'd like to help you.

Do you see that little tic mark between the quotes above? That is called a comma. It serves a very specific function in communicating through the written word. The rules which govern its use are called grammar. Please learn those rules and learn when and where to place a comma in a sentence. That way, when you correct me, you won't look like a fucktard who can't use a comma.

Your grammar is atrocious, but you can find a typo in the dark. Well, done!

Did you write your response in Microsoft Word and use Spell/Grammar check twice before migrating it to your blog? I bet you did. I'm flattered you spent, you know, 10 minutes of your time to ensure your response was correct in both grammatically and spelling. In contrast, I really am ashamed of myself for just whipping up responses on the fly and not take the time to assiduously run grammar check. My mistake, and I know I'll have to find a way to sleep at night.
Regardless, I would like to point out another error of yours: "fucktard" isn't really a word. I can't believe after all the time you spent proofreading your response, you let that one slip.

"I'm flattered you spent, you know, 10 minutes"

Sir, my goodness! For someone that claims not care, you certainly have spent an inordinate amount of time on this particular subject AND that lengthy comment. Your actions give your words away. You care. You care deeply.

And fucktard most certainly is a word. Look in the mirror, you will see one.

If five minutes over a week is considered, "an inordinate amount of time," one might wonder what kind of life you have for having this blog?

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

Sir, and one might also wonder why you come to this blog 6 or 7 times a day and spend well over an hour on it. Sitemeter doesn't lie. You've way over 5 minutes here over the last several days.

We do appreciate your company, though. But have been getting complaints that you ARE lowering the aggregate IQ.
