I think all fans are "allowed" to call players by nicknames. It's called freedom of speech - as long as the names are not vulgar or offensive to readers. ;)

I feel that the original post in this thread violates the BasketballBoards.net Guidelines and think it should be removed. He is harassing the players and fans by insulting their nicknames and uses vulgarity as well.

:grinning:

Well, I think the poster was expressing his opinion and as long as he was not vulgar or confrontational with one fan(he did not name a poster and attack an individual poster), I don't see a problem. If I did, I wouldn't have replied to the thread. :D

I've made posts that were not directed towards certain people, but rather certain things or ideas in general. They were removed basically without an explaination to me.

If that happened then copy the url of the thread and send it to the mod of the particular forum and ask them why your message was deleted or edited. There isn't anything wrong with asking why something was edited, as sometimes posters may not understand good forum etiquette and that way they can learn.

That's impossible

The WHOLE thread was deleted. I got no explaination for it either. There is no URL to copy, because the post is gone. I think it may have been deleted because I said gay in it, but that's not a reason to delete a post, edit it.

This is going off topic, so why don't you just PM the mod of the forum and ask anyways.

Now this thread can get back to the topic. :)

Hey, B-Log man, I understand what you're saying, Theres no Mac in the T-Machine. Most people I guess are too dumb to relieze it, either that or they just dont care. Anyways, I think "EYES" would be a better nick for McGrady anyways.

c-but!! Now that is a nickname you'd want to avoid.

wow.. this has become a hot little topic. I just wanted to point out the whole "using the name as a nickname thing", because it's really getting old. What happened to the old days when we had great nicknames like: "The Microwave", "Magic", "The Human Highlight Film", "Air" Jordan... these guys today are great players, and they need nicknames that can stand the test of time, and separate them from the rest. This has been another way that the NBA has failed in promoting its players. Believe it or not, the great nicknames of the 80's really helped to get the players out there and in the minds of the general public. These are the best players of OUR era, and we settle for "A.I." come on....

We call him T-Mac because T-Mc doesn't sound right.
