Since returning to the forums, I've done my best to avoid the kind of crap confrontation I engaged in too much years back when I first posted.  Over the past two years I've watched 4 or 5 people who somehow think they own Hoopshype and can control it's content through their bullying tactics and childish behavior.  I want to talk about basketball on this site and will continue to attempt to avoid anything but that type of conversation.

DeronWilliams however has yet to actually discuss anything but basketball on any thread I've posted in.  Apparently, he finds it his personal duty to roam around and stalk every thread I post in.  His responses are nothing related to basketball, and are merely personal attacks and more on myself and now my family.  Going back to two years ago and the past few weeks, he has now posted 4 personal pictures of myself, my wife and now my children on this site, and the moderators have done nothing to prevent him from doing this again. 

I completely understand why the posting activity on this site is limited to a few people giving each other high fives while remaining threatened by any new poster (or old poster) coming in and disagreeing with their little circle of bullies.  Personally, this site would have much better reputation and much more activity if those few were all removed. 

In case anybody needs a reminder.

I was banned for far, far less.  I wonder if anyone on this site will put their money where their mouth is about DeronWilliams.

Being a snitch should be a bannable offense.

Posting things that people willingly make public to the rest of the internet should not be.

Childish behaviour? Like tattling? That kind of childish behaviour?

What about referring to another poster as a "waste of space pothead"? Does that count as bullying?

Oh cry me a freakin' river dude. Just because you're using a different username now doesn't mean everyone has forgotten the crap you used to spew as Bteam. I highly doubt you're going to garner any sympathy from users on here.

Also, if TWO years ago someone on here located and posted a picture of you, why have you still not made your Facebook or other social media profiles private, to prevent this issue from happening? Why not hide your email in your HH profile?

Also, like duck said, snitching isn't cool. I thought you were a grown man. Get over it. Lastly, do you really think DeronWilliams gives a damn about being banned or not? You're doing a pretty poor job of avoiding this "crap confrontation."

The predictability of this site is hilarious.  The four or five of you feel threatened, you come to each others aid and play this sad, sad victim.   Then you return to your normally scheduled team bullying tactics on pretty much every single thread on this site. 

What's most hilarious about your attack "this" time is that one thread down on this very Feedback forum is DeronWilliams crying for someone else to be banned.  I guess his own medicine isn't good enough for him?  And I highly doubt Kemba did anything even close to as bad as violate someones personal information. 

The way I remember it is that back before people like Duck and Jeremy joined this site (before the worst vitriol started I might add), Selby, Josh, myself and others joined a Hoopshype fan page and became Facebook friends.  We were civil in discussion at that time (and for over a year if I remember) before you joined together in your little club of bullies that systematically attack any poster (ok every poster) you feel threatened by that disagrees with any one of you about anything).  Once you decided to drop me, you then used my information and shared with others like Deron, as well as by posting it publically.  It was a pathetic violation of trust and I don't have to apologize for anything I've said since that time for the things you've used against me.  I never once went into Selby's facebook and posted anything personal about him, even as I was in the power to do so.  There is nothing a poster can say, even in response to someone else, that justifies that given the community rules that exist here

What's also amazing is that I can very likely pull up almost any thread on the first page of the general forum and find any one of your little club insulting other posters in at least as bad of ways that I used to do.  I dont' owe you anything and I plan on sticking around here to talk about basketball.  I won't engage in general forum with public attacks on you, but I will defend myself, and especially my family. 

In the few posts I have reported to moderators, almost to a person the moderators responded to me apologizing for "those guys" while stating that I am not the first to report them, but that only anmar can ban them.  I've said my peace and if you feel it is in your best interest to continue stalking me on the internet, feel free.

I was never friends with you on Facebook so I have no idea what you're talking about. You've had members on here posting personal pics of you/your family, clearly indicating they have access to your Facebook photos. Why not increase the privacy settings? I know you at least know how to use the internet since you're posting on a message board. Also, your email is visible to anyone in your profile, your email which happens to include your full name. How do you think anyone found your Facebook?!

Also, DeronWilliams' kemba thread was a joke. Dice Dice Baby and Nepata Cataria were the ones truly trying to get kemba banned.

Lastly, what would anyone feel 'threatened' by? Being banned? lol you've got to let this one go dude.

Okay, so everyone gets banned because everyone has broken those rules. What next?

No, the five of you get banned and this forum flourishes.  It's amazing that the only thing that's changed since I left 2 and a half years ago is that the same 5 bullies are still trolling around controlling every post while there are almost no new posters at all, and 3/4's of the best posters have all left.  What does that tell you?  If you start looking around the room and realize that everyone has left the party, at some point you'd figure out the reason why. 

On a side note, I do notice that since I returned a few weeks ago, activity on this site has skyrocketed.  Of course, part of that is you sharks swimming about waiting for every opportunity.

I would look up the definition for the words 'bullying' and 'skyrocketed' because I really don't think they mean what you think they mean.

Well, unless I'm just stupid stoned right now, you're saying DeronWilliams should be banned for discussing nothing but basketball on any thread you've posted in?

It tells me that I find stupidity more amusing than other people do. Who were these "best posters" that left on account of these posters you allude to but never name?

Well the party must be pretty good if someone that nobody liked was removed by force and they chose to come back.

See, even when you're making a public spectacle out of being a crybaby you can't help but pull nonsense like this. The fact that you will try to present yourself as being superior while being a grown *** man running to the teachers at recess is amazing.

MJ asking for someone to be banned? No one is going to listen, even if you would be correct. You've been banned yourself and have been gone a while and have done little to really improve anyone's opinion on you.
