Shodate banned?

Recommended Posts

I don't know what else I could possibly do to counter the snobbish line, so I've stopped trying.

 

 

In my experience, there are generally two types of wrestling fans on the internet . Those who are genuinely interested in wrestling and/or its history and enjoy finding out new information. Those kind of folks tend to fit in well here. The other type are basically WWE only fans and get irrationally defensive if anyone questions the official company line. That's where the "snobbish" stuff tends to come from, as there tends to be a big overlap between those folks and those who think education is bad.

Hold on, Stro is banned? I get that he could be antagonistic but a perma ban? Did a particular incident lead to that? He was one of the best posters on here.

 

He was banned a while back for being a meanie pants in almost all of his posts, despite frequent requests to stop.

Actually, I do think there's also an über-snobbish attitude consisting on over-praising everything WWE against the "evil snobbish Meltzerian smark promotions".

Don't worry, you ably counter that by slagging most things WWE.

 

I get that if you're feeling your oats as a newly "serious" wrestling fan and you believe 2014-2018 New Japan has clearly produced the greatest wrestling ever, this place might seem a little strange.

 

But if you drill down even a little, the snobbish hive mind shit falls apart. Especially now, when the list of most prolific posters is pretty different than it was five years ago.

I've actually praised a whole lot of WWE matches and cards (mostly NXT Takeovers) to great lenghts in the last few years, despite not liking the product (and the way its presented) as a whole. So there...

What about those of us who don't care for modern wrestling as a whole? Are we the out of touch, grumpy old men who just wish the kids would stay off of our lawn? :)

I actually dislike shodate.. and I do hate the way he posts. I did not complain about him or ask for him to be banned though. He has contributed more on this message board than I have.

 

Is he really Japanese? Or an anarchist or whatever the fuck?

If I could give you some honest feedback, it would be that people want you to work harder to clean up your posts by making an attempt to use punctuation, capitalizing words where appropriate, and watching for misspelling. I hate saying that because I know English isn't your first language. But I think that would go a long way. :)

 

We do have some other ESL posters here, but we don't usually run into this issue.

And to the other point, the whole idea of general snobbery here is silly. We have people who are passionate about what they like and they don't like, and most of the time, because of the nature of the board, they've thought through why they think the way they do. We can't confuse conviction for elitism.

Shodate's posts are borderline unreadable and he may be borderline insane. Yet he is very knowledgeable, has obscure tastes in wrestling and his off the wall opinions are refreshingly different.

He's the Tommy Wiseau of PWO. Totally batshit crazy with an odd taste in wrestling, but I'd be lying if I said he didn't like make this place a bit more colorful.
