Absolutely horrendous comment. And to think he/she said I should be ashamed of myself for saying, "I would punch every single one of those idiots in the face." (that posted on that thread in a negative way).

I think he was insinuating you would punch Osama and Austin in the face and that you should be ashamed of that when he/she is the one who went way across the line with the initial comments.

I think he was just mocking my statement that he should be ashamed of himself.

I'm not sure we need him around if he can't bring himself to apologize. I'm not one for suggesting that posters get 86'd, but in my opinion, sys really crossed a line.

Follow the iink in the fifth post in this thread:

http://ouhoops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22520

It'll take you to a thread on a K-State site peopled by a group of deep thinkers and philosophers who are taking delight in trashing Austin Box, and sys offers one of the more questionable comments in the entire thread.

Oooooh, so edgy! Look at them!

That thread reads like a bunch of man-childs. Not impressed with people who understand they're acting like a jackass but don't care to change their behavior.

Also, that message board looks straight out of the mid-90's.

Surely there must have been some type of underlying sarcasm or something at play in his making that statement. I mean that could be the only possible explanation, like mocking other posters for their disgusting comments.

I wondered the same thing, Mr. B, but sys has not chosen to explain his intended tone to us.

Mr. B: Sys said this on our other thread - "different board, different aesthetic." That leads me to believe that he wasn't mocking the other posters. Maybe he was being sarcastic. Either way, it wasn't warranted. Only he knows the truth though!

It's obvious that sys is extremely bitter that his beloved program is one of the most statistically putrid programs in college football history, and hasn't been relevant in about 10 seasons. He wouldn't be making those clown comments otherwise.

There are better ways to handle your bitterness, sys.

i will not apologize for my remark, nor explain it.

i respect this board enough to assume that most of you can figure out my tone & intended meaning for yourselves if you read the thread with that intent. if not, perhaps sam, or someone else familiar with goemaw and it's posters, will explain it; i don't believe that i should have to. i actually thought (still think) that it was a relatively clever comment, in it's brevity if nothing else.

as far as banning me, i've enjoyed this board very much, and would like to continue to have the opportunity to comment on ou, kstate and the big 12 in general at this site. but if having to censor myself on kstate boards is a condition of participating here, then i would obviously choose the kstate boards over ouhoops.

It's a message board, people. No need to get upset over anything.

That said, people who make comments like sys's above usually live a very miserable existence.

Maybe someday when you grow up and become an adult you'll realize that there are some things you just shouldn't joke about, even on the internet. Bye.

Reminds me of the OSU fans sitting behind me that were screaming "break his leg! break his leg!" every single time Adrian Peterson touched the football in Stillwater during the '04 Bedlam game. But at least they weren't screaming "I hope he dies! I hope he dies!"

Pretty much daily something on the internet reminds me that there are a lot of pathetic humans out there.

Do you make quips about the departed at funerals and refuse to apologize for or explain them? Do you expect the mourners within earshot to figure out your tone and intended meaning?

The posters on that poor excuse for a board you were hanging out on were trashing Austin Box mere days after his death. You either took part in speaking ill of the dead or made a glib comment on what the others were saying. If the former, you deserve whatever you're getting here. If the latter, you display a special brand of arrogance in characterizing your remark as "clever" and refusing to either explain or apologize for the post.

If you haven't learned by now that tone and attitude in text-based electronic communications -- whether on web boards, in emails or via texts and IMs -- is very often misunderstood, then you must be brand new to the online world. Sarcasm online is a tricky thing, indeed, and when it is used in a comment that -- on its surface, at least -- celebrates the death of a 22-year-old young man who was much beloved by so many, then it exhibits sheer stubbornness and even gall to pretend that clarifications, if not apologies, are not in order.

It seems clear now that you're claiming -- if only indirectly -- that you were commenting on the other posters' sentiments. I feel safe in assuming, given the intelligence exhibited in their posts, that the vast majority of them didn't grasp your meaning, that your oh-so-clever dig at them sailed right over their heads.

So nice job all the way around. You've offended many here, and your intended barb at those in the other community was so artfully subtle that they had no idea they'd been insulted.

Seems you missed the target in just about every way possible.
