    I'm curious as to whether you are a considered a "guest" if you are not "logged in"?..because I sometimes just browse and only log in if I'm going to make a post.
    Yes, unless your logged in you would just show up as a "guest".

    I just edited it and made it very clear. The answer in lowercase and to make sure to put a space between the first and last names.

    Thanks again for bringing it to my attention. Can you tell I've neglected some of my duties here? Sorry fellas.

    I'm a reader at heart, especially when it's about the Raptors! My girlfriend thinks it's not really considered "reading". blah! When I first joined this site, I actually thought this was the Official Raptors website. Haha... But you know what, I think it Unofficially is already. I wish I was in T.O. (where I plan on moving next) but Calgary is still a cool place to live, better than Winter-holy-hell-it's-minus-50-over-here-peg, where I was born and raised! Hahaha... hey wpg will always be my home.

    Anyway, I've come to enjoy the material that's been on this site. The special guests from other team forums as well as RR own writers. I don't always post anything, usually when I'm super excited about something but I do want to thank the people who run this site. It takes a lot of work, a lot of time and a lot of dedication to do what ya'll do here. Sometimes you don't get the appreciation and/or credit you guys deserve. That's why I'm saying "thanks for all the hard work putting this site up". I look forward to many more articles, especially since we have a team we can finally cheer for when they (hopefully) make the playoffs!

    GO RAPS GO!!!

    You'll see the same shit here that you'll see on any forum or board anywhere on the internet.
    I'm not going to make this about Matt52 (even though I was/am a big fan of his posts) because the mods have a super hard job that takes a lot of work, and if Matt52 got banned that's on him. His wife is probably thankful (I know my wife would be!)

    However, I do disagree with the statement above. Here at RR you see way less shit/trolling (trade forum excepted!) than on other forums which is why I only post/visit this one. I really hope that continues. I actually like the fact that we at least try to be respectful to each other. In order to keep the tone civil I've decided to report posts that make personal attacks to other posters and I would encourage others who feel the same to do so as well. I don't want any posters to be banned, (but fully support the mods for doing so when necessary). I just want to keep it about basketball and not about our egos.

    Just my two cents.

    Also back to the point of the thread, I just click the little check box to keep me always logged in. That way when I want to post I don't get redirected to a login in page... saves me like 5 seconds every time I want to post!

    EDIT: It's also nice to be able to see which members are reading, especially when you've responded to an earlier post of theirs... I encourage all regular readers to be members and log in, even if your posts are few and far between (or non-existent).

    I only come here when I want to masterbate, then I reread the Rudy Gay trade thread and I'm ready. Was great to have new material after using the Barg trade thread for so long.

    Few things....

    1. Mango is right. One thing I have grown to enjoy about this forum, morse so than the last I was on, was that guys here DO get it. They do treat it like its 5-10 buddies at a bar, or in a RecRoom drinking beer, watching hoops, and talking shit. Its great. Because when you can say to a guy "thats just fucking awful, youre insane" and have him tell you to go to hell, but have both understand it is what it is, shit talk for fun.....then thats when you get an authentic experience.

    Anyone watch "The League"? THAT is what it should be like.

    Anyhow. I should be a high level moderator.

    I am quite awesome.
    the league is awesome.

    and matt52 definitely made this place way more fun/informative/knowledgeable than it probably will be now, unfortunately.

    You know what..that;s enough about Matt52. He couldn't handle the heat, so he got out of the kitchen. End of story. This entire thread is about how there's 1000's of people that visit here daily, if there's not one single person there that can fill the gap left by the apparently beloved Matt52, I'm sure there's enough people here where it can be a collective effort until everyone's basically forgot all about Matt.

    But, first thing's first, you gotta let it go people. It's Doc's site and he booted him because he felt it was necessary. As someone who's received infractions, warnings, suspensions and bans. It does not happen without merit.

    The league is terrible. Its lowest-hanging-fruit type humour. Expletives and being raunchy does not equate to comedy. The last thing I want is to model our interactions to the League..

    Matt52 also came off as condescending 75% of the time and was a bit too stubborn in my opinion. I don't think the forum will miss a beat.

    The league reference had nothing to do in context with matt52. He wasn't like that at all. Want more league-minded folk? That's Craig/p00ka/etc crowd.

    Sorry, I wasnt connecting them either. Craig referenced to making the atmosphere more like the League, and I think thats going towards RealGM-esque conversation.

    Matt52 is another issue all together.

    I don't recall him being any more condescending than anyone else on here when there's a heated debate going on.

    Anyway that's all I have to say about the situation. Honestly I always found his posts to be incredibly knowledgeable and any point he brought up was generally always backed up with good points and stats. It was posts like his that made me respect this forum more than other places.

    NOT saying that no one else here is as prolific or detailed as matt52 can be, but yah. Shitty loss. And sorry that's all I have to say about it.

    Being a backdoor cheap shot artist is admirable, compared to whatever this league thing is, I guess?

    Agreed. Lets avoid discussing specific posters, especially in any sort of negative light.

    Doc posted an official statement on the obvious issue. Let sleeping dogs lie.
