Mendoza has been nuked for trolling. He contributes nothing to the forum other than to complain about how MDawg has been treated in suspiciously-fake bad English. While complaining about suspensions is allowed, in moderation, we define a troll as somebody whose primary purpose is to sow division and discord in the forum while contributing nothing positive. Mendoza is a textbook example of that.

I personally will take any heat for this one.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Glad I wasn't the only one that thought that. Florida resident or perhaps they live close to Mdawg?

I'm pretty sure they share the same underwear.

Yeah, I always thought it curious that Mendoza would show up whenever Mdawg got suspended. In fact, IIRC, he registered just 2 or 3 days into Mdawg's first suspension.

I also share Mike's skepticism about Mendoza's "bad English."

I knew it immediately. But never was interested in a series of never ending threads to discuss it. I love Mike's explanation.

I also had skepticism about Mendoza and his writing style. Seemed like a made up character trait.

Very bad English is a common cover for anyone, could have been anyone who wouldn't want to have their name on something. Mdawg would be a favorite to be the sock, but not an overwhelming favorite. I couldn't even pass a quiz on whatever Mendoza or Mdawg posted about, so maybe it's more obvious than I think. I don't even disagree with the suspension of the account, just saying it's too easy to claim to know you KNOW whom it is.

My baseball analogy is that he crossed The Mendoza Line.

Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anyone really care?
