    Sam was a great poster. Greenkiller did him in. That guy got under everybody's skin. Glad he's gone at least. Miss Sam though. I always learned something I didn't know from his posts.

    BobHeckler was a legend to me.  You wear a helmet if you throw up weak stuff with him around or else he'd drop some serious knowledge on your skull.  I almost felt bad posting here because I knew that SlipperySam and BobHeckler knew so much more about basketball than I do.  Made me want to stick to football.

    But some of the trolls now make me feel like I could win a Nobel

    There is not the diversity of thought (i.e., small tent, convergent thinking) at Sams compared to BDC... or the crazies either. CHECK 

    Unlike BDC, mods do have strong opinions and are active. CHECK

    High level discussions... CHECK

    Convivial discussions... for the most part... CHECK

    And Sam banned NickFaldo... simply for being NickFaldo. CHECKMATE!!!!

    'nuff said!

    This ant-social sadist's cousin recentlly snapped in Norway. I guess in the big scheme of things, it's not so bad that it has ten usernames (including mployee8, RicoCeltic, kyceltic) and is trolling this board around the clock except for a few hours sleep. I don't care if it's from Kentucky, Georgia, or Arizona. I don't care if it was hit by agent orange or some other chemical, or whether it is bitter about being in a wheelchair or insane over something entirely different. I quit Sam's because he was charging a fee to post. This sadist quit, because the people there were being too nice to one another

    I write extensive, informative, interesting posts. it simply trolls. It's messed in the head. It's got some form of wingnut mentality. It's the epitome of the Ugly American. This guy is the worst there is to offer about our country. He is the example of why things never get better in the world. He's one of the lowest forms there is. A respectable person would not talk with it or invite it into his or her home.

    Sam is one of most knowledgable Celtics fans so his board doesn't suffer fools gladly - you know the type, factually-challenged.  It's a great place for Celtics discussions (and where two infantile jerks don't ruin every topic). No trolls need apply.

    just like people don't have the "freedom" to yell "Fire" in a crowded theater, people shouldn't be free to sputter stupid, non-sensical insults

    Sams Club is certainly the polar opposite of wild/woolly BDC. Total idiots are not allowed by any stretch.

    Snake.... its not censorship but there is pressure to conform... or at least to pull your punches on certain "sacred cow" topics. Many would find it a bit confining... but to each his/her own.

    Something in the middle would be appealing to a lot more Celtic fans but it doesn't exist to my knowledge.

    I don't think you really get the free speech thing.  People actually do have the right to sputter stupid non sensical insults.  That is entirely different than yelling fire in a crowded theater.  I am not saying Sam's site doesn't have merit.  I am just saying I don't feel the need to go to another site just because two dudes are saying things like " the lakers are really cool and the Celtics stink".  Who cares?

    I agree.  I was on this board when Sam was king.  I have posted on and off on this board for years.  It certainly was more vibrant then but I mean if you can't handle a couple of trolls without turning tail and running...

    Sam is still king. No question.

    Its not the turning tail and running that bothers me. Its the endless cycle of ignoring.. then engaging... then complaining... then re-engaging.

    The endless baiting and switching that goes on from both sides.

    There is a whole lot to ignore in order to get to the good stuff... but stop complaining/whining/STFxU and enjoy it for what is offers... which is considerable.

    It's not running.  He created a competing site with its own benefits

    I think some of the trolls are Boston.com staff who probably worry that Sam and Bob knew more basketball than they do.  Some of what Sam and Bob said was infinitely better than any reporting on this site - the only thing comparable is CelticsHub

    I don't blame Sam for leaving.  Sure his site might be too strict, but half of a board shouldn't be mindless insults and flimsy "arguments" unfounded by fact, particularly when initiated by the kinds of cowards you call out (you know, the Lakers trolls who never show up after they lose, fling a mindless comment, and don't come back to back it up).  Better to get rid of them completely - that type of hit-and-run b*llsh*t has no place in a legitimate discussion.

    I'll talk all day with RUWorthy not because she picked some cute picture for her avatar but because she's willing to have an intelligent conversation.

    But there should be no freedom to be stupid.
