Can't remember anything I did, after game ended Saturday. Apparently, I am a goof! 

I can refresh your memory: You created a forum topic on this site titled "OBAMA GOING ROGUE?" and then it got worse from there.

Here are the rules. They're easy. Don't do that again.

You can do it either way. Two reasons for three apples: 1) More apple flavor 2) You can't make a pie with one apple.

Comment 12 Nov 2014

Damn it, I should have drawn their attention to this. "Look - here's proof that I hate infidels too."

Also, apologies on all the stupid typos in this story. Wrote this on the 12-hour flight back last night while draining the plane of every last drop of port it had.

DUDE...didn't you read Ramzy's article about Fall Weddings?

This was more geared toward the people who plan their weddings in fall, not the victims who are obligated to attend.

That being said, I will be in Israel next weekend on unavoidable/unrescheduleable business and am reeeeeally looking forward to finding the game at 3am local time somewhere on what's a work day in Tel Aviv. Yesssssss

His probation ended at Michigan's homecoming, which is today.

If he gets snippy and passive aggressive again his account will be deleted.

Comment 29 Oct 2014

I blurred the variation between unanswered and consecutive and should have used better scrutiny in separating the two.

It's consecutive (in both the Penn State and Michigan State games) because Ohio State and Sparty eventually answered. I blame being my own copy editor.

Comment 28 Oct 2014

I know there was brief discussion about two years ago, but is there a plan to put out an official 11w app?

Have had it for years, via the Premium Lounge app store. On my phone it lives between bourbon and college football scores, which makes sense to me.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Ramzy banned him because he was "boring as fuck" and because "go fuck yourself."  

LOL that's selective enough to suggest you'd be, say, willing to give Taylor Lewan and Brendan Gibbons a pass. And my suspect analysis that you M Man (sorry, hard to keep you straight) "disagreed with every word" went viral among former Michigan players, Michigan blogs and was generally received as "right fucking on target." It got exponentially more traffic on Michigan sites than it did here or on other OSU sites and it was overwhelmingly positive.

You M Man is the outlier here. That makes your analysis suspect, M Man. Er, Jude. Whatever, someone already unplugged your account (it wasn't me this time). 

Comment 13 Oct 2014

You're right, which is why I took my post down with my 2nd edit.

Nah, whatever man. I just take offense to having the caricature of every Michigan stereotype badgering me here. Have an upvote for whoever downvoted you.

Comment 13 Oct 2014

Edit - This is without knowing what went down last night.

Well, don't let that stop you from passing judgement.

Comment 13 Oct 2014

I often agree with M Man, and he often gives us very good insight into all things University of Michigan.  I also enjoy the legal perspective and expertise that he brings as well.  However, he could probably be less condescending, which is a trait we often ascribe to persons of similar allegiance around here.

I don't know that he should necessarily be banned for expressing his opinions, but when you get passive-aggressive with a staff member, yeah, you should expect that.  But Ramzy could have gone about it more professionally (as in, sans the F word) as well.

I miss the days when we could discuss actual football with M Man.  It was more fun back then.

All fair points. I'm not all that familiar with M Man's work because I don't spend very much time in the forums and barely read the comments either (i.e. if I have something I want to say, I'm blessed with a time slot on elevenwarriors dot com for that purpose - and the time I put into writing sort of eats up the time I'd spend in the forums, etc).

There are three things at play here: One is his snippy tirade in the comments of my column from last Wednesday; two is his breach of the Florida State/Winston buckshot with a continuation of that same stupid Michigan tirade which was off-topic and violated site rules; three was that this past weekend just happened to be my turn as 11W's weekend editor, which thrust me into site custodial duties, i.e. actually spending time in the forums and managing the content.

I don't know if M Man is always like that or not, but the thing is - I really don't care. If you're going to go into an Ohio State site with a Michigan helmet icon, you shouldn't act like you own the fucking place, especially toward one of the guys who literally does.

As for being professional...11W is my glorious escape from professionalism. I just can't get terribly upset over naughty words. 

Comment 12 Oct 2014

The stupidest way to approach the issue is to call your rival trash (literally, "trash-talking") and say that their guys are terrible and your guys deserve careful examination.  

Any old sports blog could declare, "Their team's kicker is trash."  The smart blogs would get into the how and why of Title IX.  So I congratulate the OP in this case for at least raising a valid point with a good question.  "What Would Troy..."; your first upvote immediately above, is from me.

People here dive into the Waters stuff because it's complicated and relevant to Ohio State. You make the incredibly stupid assumption that a sex offender like Brendan Gibbons, who is trash, deserves a similar forum and a fair shake on this site. You must have been eating dumbfuck sandwiches when you came up with that logic.

I'm disabling your account for awhile because you're absolutely boring as fuck, this post is passive-aggressive toward me and because go fuck yourself. Your freedom of speech is between you and the US government. You have zero rights here. Go start a blog where you can smell your own farts and determine how the public discusses topics you deem worthy.
