Lol. Banning a guy with 55,000 youtube subscribers for saying “from the heart of my bottom”. This is after labelling his work as “terrible” then in the next sentence talking up his own work no one has even heard of. 

Stay classy, @iacas

You're right: he was banned.

It has nothing to do with "55,000 YouTube followers." Nor does it have to do - as anyone who understands a calendar can tell - by a comment that was made over a year ago.

Instead, @Hugh Jars, what prompted @golfsidekick's ban today was, as I posted to Instagram to @golfsidekick:

You were not banned for your "heart of my bottom" post, which even your followers can see was in September, 2018. You were banned because you made four or five posts today that did nothing but insult, as you've done here, without adding anything to the conversation.

You joined, posted your videos, refused to discuss them with people who could show how and why your many theories were flawed, and then every few months, would jump back on to toss out insults. You were trolling, and you were banned for trolling. Simple as that.

I called @golfsidekick's videos and ideas "terrible" once. Absolutely. Hell, it's right here:

We've discussed - and by "we" I'm specifically not including @golfsidekick, because they were never interested in actually discussing anything, only posting and promoting their videos - the many reasons why the videos were "terrible." It's not just a word, it's an opinion formed on the viewing of a lot of their content.

I call things as I see them, and I can pretty much always back up my opinions with facts. @golfsidekick wasn't interested in that.

The posts that they made today, four or five of them, were nothing but insults. They didn't advance the discussion. They didn't add anything to the discussion at all. They just lashed out at me as some "internet pro" (clue: I'm an actual pro, and an acclaimed one at that) with "60,000 posts" (many of which have offered a TON of free info here, to all).

Standard trolling shit, and not worth more time than I've already given it. Really, not even worth this time, but I'm just cooling down after soccer to find that @Hugh Jars's only recent contribution was to make the above warning-worthy post. (I didn't warn ya, dude… I was playing soccer. But you earned it regardless of which moderator ultimately warned you.)

@Hugh Jarsthat pretty much sums that up yeah? So many people just don’t get it. Erik always backs his assessments with facts and data. If he can’t he clearly admits it’s just his opinion but hasn’t seen information to make him believe otherwise. Anytime someone comes here and soap boxes an idea they get all butt hurt if they’re not accepted with blissful praise and wonder.

@Hugh Jars is basically trolling as well and contributing nothing to the site. It is not worth discussing anything with him.

You’re right. I’m stubborn of course. Comments about 55k subscribers...lol. There are a lot more than 55k people who still follow/promote/believe poor golf advice.

And Beyoncé has like a billion followers so we should take golf advice from her then, right?
