If you see a post on SportsFilter to anything from SportsFanMagazine or Greg Wyshynski, it's a self-link that will be deleted quickly. He shows up here frequently to pimp his own work.

So we're anti-pimp now?

posted by yerfatma at 08:26 AM on October 16

Why don't you just ban him, rcade? He's had plenty of warning, obviously doesn't give a shit, and keeps on doing it. Four strikes you're out?

posted by Ufez Jones at 09:23 AM on October 16

I am offended by his anti-soccer remark... He can go to hell.

posted by StarFucker at 09:28 AM on October 16

Don't playa hate, congratulate!

Ban his ass!

Upon further review of the links: Excellent rebuttal to the retards statements in the fourth link rcade.

I'm just glad that this ugly incident has brought StarFucker and I closer together.

I wonder what kind of clothing style would suit an anti-pimp like rcade...

Is this going to be caged match or a pillow fight?

Ho hum, more censorship. Please, continue with the thrilling Page 2 simulcasting and soccer talk. I think he was mocking you and sportsfilter, rcade. Not to mention the fine spofi family and our soccer friends... and kittens. for the sake of the kittens, i say ban.

posted by jerseygirl at 01:35 PM on October 16

WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE KITTENS? I say ban him, ban his children, ban his grandchildren and ban me for talking about him as a lesson that we don't take this sort of thing lightly!

StarUnmentionable says: Don't EVER talk about soccer in a negative way fucknsucks... I say: Matter of fact, you're not allowed to call it "soccer" anymore. Show some respect — call it "fútbol."

posted by dusted at 01:47 PM on October 16

can't you call it footie? Its so much cuter. *hides*

posted by jerseygirl at 01:49 PM on October 16

No need to hide Jersey, we are secure in our mascilinity. So we can say footie. So there fucknsucks!
Bye the bye, Fooker excellent reworking of the moniker there, I think that should stick.

posted by lilnemo at 02:12 PM on October 16

Heh heh... I was gonna say football, but i just wanted to make sure that he didn't get confused. "footie"... Cracks me up.

posted by StarFucker at 02:13 PM on October 16

Thanks lilnemo...i made myself chuckle when i came up with it. I still chuckle looking at it.

posted by StarFucker at 02:15 PM on October 16

Footie's OK, but why bother when every right-minded person knows what "football" refers to? Oh yeah, sorry, back to the subject in question. Hang him up by the gonads from the highest tree in the kingdom.

Chuckle is a funny word too! Say it ten times fast, it loses all meaning faster than any word i can think of.

posted by StarFucker at 02:33 PM on October 16

We oughta meme him. The worst of all the punishments.

posted by therev at 03:06 PM on October 16

Oh, and if you want to drop him a line, he has a valid address on the SportsFanMagazine website. As does his boss, oddly enough... Okay, that's mean, I'll stop.

Sorry I'm late to the fray - I stopped to pick up the swords and pitchforks. I'm afraid the boiling oil was on backorder. Line forms to the left...

No problems kloeprich, I have some tar and feathers for after you finish with the pointier implements.

This site gets blocked now at my university for some reason. Due to gratuitous and wanton violence, it claims. And its all here, and in this thread. (Although, it doesn't seem all that gratuitous to me. In one of his fpp, he leads in with "Here's that Wyshynski guy again" - and yet he still has the nerve to claim it isn't self linking. Burn him I say. That'll show him. Show him good.)

Starphoquer, a meme is a in-house reference that starts off being funny and ends up being hated by all. If you read MeFi, think kittens, pancakes and Miguel.

gratuitous and wanton violence I attribute it to the Fooker. He's a bad mammajamma.

dng, try http://my.work.has.lame.filters.sportsfilter.com/ If that doesn't work, ask the powers to be to make it work.

dng, try http://my.work.has.lame.filters.sportsfilter.com/ That brings up a porn site.

My browser broke when I typed that URL.

If SportsFilter is blocked by work, just use Google's translation tools as a proxy. Translate the page from English to English, like this: SportFilter through a proxy

posted by salmacis at 04:50 AM on October 17

...this presumably also works for porn sites, but I'm not stupid enough to test that.. :-)

posted by salmacis at 04:51 AM on October 17

Cheers everyone. I'll try them when I go in on monday.

posted by dng at 06:37 AM on October 17

If you go through a proxy (like the google translator) but the main site is blocked, you'll find the images won't be visible. Not that that matters too much I guess.

posted by BigCalm at 08:27 AM on October 17

Images DO matter...

posted by StarFucker at 09:23 AM on October 17

I wouldn't mind the guy pimping his stuff ... if it actually drew some reaction. What's he averaging, two responses per post? Hell, that's lamer than ... uhhh, me.

BC, that's your team's mascot, right?

That should totally be Sportsfilter's mascot.

WC, are you feeling some strange (yet new and wonderful) urges???

posted by billsaysthis at 06:06 PM on October 17

Are those real? No. I believe they're implants.

We'll see next week just how strangely.

posted by billsaysthis at 11:38 AM on October 18

In fact, I was udderly distracted.

Stop milking this for attention!

You know that's a lot of bull!

Holy Cow!

SF, why are you steering this conversation to religion? And don't you remember what happened to the last people who worshipped a cow?

posted by billsaysthis at 05:12 PM on October 19

They got stuck in traffic jams? Enough with the bad puns already.
