I'm not sure where to put this.


But can we start a new thread where we upload only Knicks gifs and youtube videos?

The rules would be that the gifs must be on imgur of giphy (so that they are stored on the internet for a very long time) and the point is that its just a collection thread that will span years and years where people can remember knicks moments for a long time.

For instance, this is one of my favorite moments (this is an sbnation link, so im violating my first rule)

Is this gonna be another thread where if anyone says anything positive about Trump, they receive a warning and the thread gets locked?

I don’t even recognize this board anymore. It’s one train of thought or the highway. The front page is loaded with political OTs, and they are all locked up as soon as there’s a disagreement.

What the heck is going on here?? Why not just have a politics thread where people are allowed to freely express themselves?

RealGM sucks now. Thank the mod team.

Sorry this completely free user moderated site isn’t up to your standards of the moment.

Luckily it’s not mandatory for you to come here, post or express your contempt for others

I encourage you to find other arenas to frequent that are more to your liking. We will all enjoy knowing you are getting a better moderated experience elsewhere

His point should be acknowledged. Fury cursed myself and several others to bits before just for offering a different political viewpoint and absolutely nothing was done. One of the mods wrote “I get it, but please stop the personal attacks”. Yet here you are telling Bill Pidto to take a hike when he’s presenting a valid point. I’m no full fledge trump supporter nor am I a trump basher but I finally dabbled in the political debate on here and was immediately told to STFU to put it kindly.

It’s a shame. I used to be very friendly with you all. Now I’m a nobody. Basketball is out the window here. It’s a political site that also talks about basketball, and is openly biased and okay with censoring free speech. Hope you guys are proud.

Personally, I hate that we’re divided. I actually enjoy having the discussion with my fellow New Yorkers and Knicks fans. That is until someone comes along and censors my ideas.

Keep getting banned and keep creating accounts? This is my second account. I was banned once, years ago, for passionately defending my Knicks on the general board. You know.. back when you and I were on the same side of things here at RealGM. Before politics blinded us and divided us all. Back when it was still fun to talk hoops with everyone.

Now, you have a long-time moderator, trying to push me off of your “free” website (which generates ad revenue based on the high volume of visitors), just because I disagree with you about political/social issues. The site and its moderators are proudly suspending and banning users for their opinions?

Yikes, this is really ugly.

We're not censoring free speech

You were warned because you repeatedly post conspiracy theories with no sourcing to back them up

And now you're trying to derail a thread about an assassination attempt on the Venezuelan president into a pity party for yourself trying to claim you are the blameless victim of oppression

If you don't like the fact that you can't freely post insane conspiracy theories, you can take your posting elsewhere

Wah Wah

I do this because it’s gone past actual discussion of reality and into wacky delusional fake bull crap that I’m not tolerating or rationalizating because it’s insulting. You’re insulting and so is Bill Pidto and any moron who decides to defend the con artist who is president.

Ok so the only person detailing the thread was bill in the 2nd post complaining about thread derailment

And in you come to complain about him having a valid point about threads being hijakced by trump talk. Oh, but what a great opportunity to talk about trump for you!
