I'm not gonna come out and fuel you into a debate as you seem to thrive off when that happens Shawn, you hated Ray even before he banned you. You PM'd other teams telling them to specifically beat Ray. Now IMO that's classic bullying but whatever, like calling your bigger stronger brother to do your dirty work but

He ran 17 sidegames.

You ran one and said you "wanted out" try running 3 or 4 at once and you'll see it's tough.

The sidegame forum was the second most active forum and that's pretty much thanks to Rabi.

And as I said before and the point seems to have gone astray due to people picking at other things I said.

Who did he recruit? And who left the PG?

If this is a matter of him sending a PM with another sites name that's poor. I know other posters are on Tapology etc. I've had PMs from other MODs telling me to sign up to other sites! Cause the MODs have been confident I won't leave the PG anyway.

There's now hundreds of fantasy sites out there and this site has been promised changes, changes that haven't come.

And I know all of this stemmed from me. Saying x is the best fantasy site on the net. I'd been told to say that. I want Patrick and Jake to come on this thread and tell everyone about all those times I advertised the PG on the MMA Roundtable without being asked.

I never once got credited for that but as soon as I mention another site somehow that echos to the admins.

Dont put words in my mouth. I disliked Rabi before he banned me, when he threatened me is when I hated him. Someone has to do something to me for me to hate them. I pmed teams to beat your camp in a game, how the fuck is that bullying? Its a game man

Why'd you dislike him though?!

If its just a game why can't you just enjoy playing it without feeling the need to beat someone you don't even know.... I can understand camp competition but really. You're feelings against him are so much to the point you need to get other teams to beat someone... Wow

Thats what a game is, trying to beat others regardless if I know them or not, that's what competition is. I wasn't in the division, and as I said before it was to beat your camp not an individual

The court of public opinion is a popularity contest.

Maybe we should just un-ban all former members and invite them to promote their own competing businesses here for free? I'll even build a tool so that they can broadcast to your PM and email so that they won't have to do it manually like Ray did. If ya do it for one, then how can you say "no" to the others? Gotta be fair to everyone ya know...

I will say that as much as everyone is concerned with Ray's feelings, that this experience has changed the way I look at things here for sure. The mods approached me and asked me to handle the situation. I did. I didn't want Ray gone, I didn't want the assignment of dealing with it, Ray did A LOT of great stuff here, but here we are nonetheless. There's not a whole lot of things that could have happened differently.

A lot of the angst is bleeding over from the lack of updates and muddying the judgements being cast here as well IMO.

I don't know what day his account was deactivated, but he did have SOME time after his deactivation and all he did was use it to promote the competing site that he's now part-owner of. In fact he never even responded to me from the 2 messages that I did send him at the beginning.

Despite all this bullshit I still stand by the statement that I'm down to work things (within reason) after things have cooled down a bit. Everyone's pretty raw on the topic at the moment still.

Since when has anyone here ever been banned for having an opinion? Are people actually fear-mongering on a message board? Did Alex Jones do a radio show recently where he said that MMAPG is out to ban you?

Figured that I would take a picture of what it looks like when I'm doing stuff on MMAPG so that you guys can see that I'm a human with feelings like everyone else:

Well I cant speak for other people but ill give you my view on the banning thing.



Imo yes, there is fear mongering to an extent. The only reason i have come to that conclusion, is because of the drop in post numbers. Sure other factors have attributed to that, but I know of atleast one member who doesnt post hardly ever anymore (Aether) and he was banned. Now i dont know hisbl story, and tbh dont really know if it had to do with the banning. But from personal experience, when you get banned you dont really want to post anymore when your allowed back. I was banned a looong time ago for saying roy nelson punches like a girl. And at the time i thought that was so uncool. When i was allowed back i layed low and even took a hiatus from the site. I felt betrayed by the site that i had been apart of from the beginning. In the end i came back. And im glad i did. Ita really cool to still see members from back in the day. From when a time you werent known at all and didn't post much. I feel known now here. george112. not a very memorable username but an OG nonetheless!

I dont frequent any other mma site. I love this site. I mean come on, what other public forum would I put my first and last names!!?? haha NOT ONE is the answer. And i do it because i genuinely feel like im apart of something here.



lol damn didnt mean to sound like a sentimental girlfriend but thats just how i feel about the PG
