I'll be a legend some day!
You'll all see...
It's absolutely wild, insulting and telling that Twitter will bend over backwards to ban hate speech but will keep fucking child sexual abuse materials up because it doesn't "violate their policies"
There is technology developed to help victims protect themselves and to have footage of their abuse removed, this petition is to try to get Twitter to actually do something about it.
The petition starter Eliza Bleu says not to donate, so don't do that. But please do sign, it may not do much or anything but maybe it will.
Eliza's also a fantastic follow on social media, she's a survivor and a vicious fighter.
Welp I lucked out and got an Xbox Series X. Had to sign up for Sam's Club to get it but that doesn't seem like a huge L since that's only $40 a year and just a few trips should pay for itself.
It should arrive the day before The Show drops on Xbox so I'll get 4 days on PS4 and then transition to Xbox.
What accessories should I buy in preparation?
Something has definitely changed around there. I first noticed it after they shut down all the talk around LeBron, Hong Kong and China. They are consistently inconsistent with their enforcement of the TOS which wouldn't be so bad if they weren't also completely lacking in transparency. I remember getting into a PM with the mods and their argument was basically "we don't like that talk so stfu"
@Petravork got banned and it took hours for anyone to find out why and the reason was as weak as fuck, screaming of trumped up charges they made up.
I said it to @jdealla in a PM and I'll say it here. All of this shit shows that whoever runs the website is clearly making ad money off of the website, not just making enough to keep the servers going but actively cutting themselves a check off of running the website.
No one running a forum for the love of it goes this far to leave their members in the dark on the goings on behind the scenes.

Sometimes fighting back isn't necessarily the best move, for if you are constantly fighting back against slights you give the slighter a measure agency over your emotions.
Stay in control of your reactions. Stay in control of yourself. Stay within yourself. Look at why you want to fight back so badly. Is it to protect your ego? Is it to save face? Is it to set the record straight?
Always take a step back and analyze the situation.
Sometimes instead of fighting, gather information to help you handle that particular personality in the future. When you choose to fight without study, all you learn is how that person fights.

This dude will forever be the voice of basketball in my mind. Absolute legend. Should be in the Hall of Fame. I always hear his YYYES!!! When I shoot trash into a can.
He made some absolutely horrific basketball watchable and did something you rarely see from a play by play man, he made his color man better. He was great at his job, knew when to shut up, knew when to talk it up, knew when to get hype, knew when to be solemn.
I'm in complete shambles man.
This feels worse than when the Sixers blew Game 7...
If Tom Mcginnis and Merrell Reese retire I'm just gonna pack up and leave town.
I have to talk about one Joel Hans Embiid. If I wasn't already married, I'd propose to him. He's amazing. I love him so much. So much. He's an international treasure and every night I watch him play I feel like I am privileged to witness greatness.
It's more than just his ability on the court. He's by all accounts an amazing person who always goes out of his way to make his fans know that he loves them too.
On the court, he's something we've never seen before.
Imagine one human being capable of doing all of these things:
And this was just tonight.
I love him I love him I love him
Yeah try really hard not to strike out early on. Strikeouts give big confidence boosts and when the pitcher has high confidence, that's when those good timing squared up balls end up finding gloves or that just late on the edge of the outer PCI is a whiff and not a foul off.
@sp1ash I'm sure LeBron and AD will love getting doubled on the catch by RWB's man all game long.
They'll probably look amazing in the regular season tho. And he'd save LeBron's knees for the playoffs, but once the playoffs start RWB better be Fabricio Oberto, starter in name only.
Been playing a ton of BR lately.
For anyone playing BR here's a list of dudes who play way above their ratings and/or are low overalls who can save a draft and carry a run that you may not know about:
SS/2B/3B Jorge Polanco - Switch hitter, mediocre defense, absolutely MASHES. I'm hitting 511/522/800 with him in 46 PA. If you see him available and you need an infielder. Take him. You won't regret it.
SS/IF/OF Niko Goodrum - Switch hitter, plays a ton of positions, balls FLY off his bat and it makes no sense.
1B/3B Bobby Dalbec - Good swing and has 70+ power vs both sides. Great bench bat, can start too.
2B/3B Roughned Odor - RAKES. Fuck the ratings he rakes.
2B/SS/OF Dee Strange-Gordon - Slappy as fuck. Great glue guy for the lineup, can bunt for a hit, steal a base and seems to get all the bad hits in the world.
SS Jazz Chisholm - really good value for a Bronze SS. Only have 4 ABs with him but he kills me when my opponent has him.
3B/OF Edwin Rios - Amazing value from a Bronze. Hits for power against LH and RH and has a beautiful swing.
Willie Calhoun - Makes no sense but he mashes.
RH Jonathan Hernandez - Outlier sinker and a slider
RH Miguel Castro - Outlier sinker and a slider
RH Pedro Strop - 94 break Cutter and 99 Break slider with 80 Ctrl and 7 mph between his cutter and fb
RH Sam Coonrod - Outlier sinker with a slider and a cutter. Sinker has 86 control and 82 break
LH Andrew Chaffin - max break slider with a sinker
LH Tim Hill - Funky sidearm release with a sinker and slider
RH Tyler Rogers - Super glitchy submariner with a sinker
I'll look at some commons and such tomorrow but really Common picks should be only for SPs that you'll never use. There's a few commons that are good but they almost always become bronzes quickly or get exposed against good players.
@nd13 who do you think leaked this? Eltryl is always quick with "that shit ain't real, retract that shit right tf now" even if the report IS true. Right now? 🦗 🦗 🦗
It sounds like while multiple reports have shown the bottom end of what the asking price for Simmons is (Brogdon and a 1st, Hield, Bagley and a pile of freshly picked oranges, etc.), now there's a top end so teams can build their offers accordingly.
It's hard to negotiate value for a guy like Simmons when the only public offers that have been made are deals I wouldn't even take for Matisse.
@hollygrovemikey yeah looking into this, the deal doesn't look horrible for Memphis.
Steven Adams for JV is pretty much a push talent wise
EB only has ~$22M left guaranteed so it'd end up being a cap hit of about $4.4M per year over 5 years if they stretch him.
Memphis HAS to get the guy they want though. And they have the assets to do it.
