      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

How long will RON ARTEST be suspended?

25 posts in this topic

My guess is 5, but with his history a longer suspension wouldn't surprise me.

It's a bull shit play. I have to say and I believe this 100% because of his past with getting into trouble, he just is an excited man, can't control his actions, kinda like a defect with a guy who just can't keep his cool, I think needs anger management .I don't think for 1 minute he was trying to severely hurt harden and hamper his career even more than it already was. Hence, his name world peace, he wants a better image. He just has emotional issues obviously, I think at times he can't control it! But emotions aside, he deserves to be suspended.

It was an intentional swing. He may not have meant to clock the guy right in the dome, but he was swinging his elbow to hit.

Yeah, no one winds up like that just to swing their arm in excitement.

I can't say that I've ever seen someone wind up and take a swing with their elbow like that as part of a celebration.

if hardens face was turned toward the elbow, this could have been devistating, maybe career ending for Harden. Maybe, I mean, that looked full force. He could have done that and smashed his nose or cheek bones if that wasn't the back of Harden's Pardon the pun, "hard head"

A quick glance makes you think it was unintentional. It doesn't look like he even knew Harden was there.

But as others have said, it's hard to think it wasn't intentional because he's not swinging his elbow like that to celebrate.

I think OG is right in that this is just the instinctive reaction of a guy who, no matter what he says and does when he THINKS about things, is just a danger to everyone on the court because he's got something bad rolling around in his brain.

I really think that could have been Kobe or anyone else on the Lakers because Artest didn't do it TO Harden. He did it because he felt someone there, and for some reason his brain just clicked and told him, "Elbow that shit!".

I don't even know how long he should be suspended. If it were anyone else, I would say 4 or 5 games. With Artest, I don't even know. I still remember the brawl at the Palace.....I wish the guy would just retire because he's an embarrassment to the league. And that's coming from a guy who wishes we could go back to the harder fouls of the 80's and 90's.

GOOD INPUT ALSO MAN. Also notice, unless his sense of touch isn't working, lol, harden was touching his body side to side before he put his elbow back, so right there, well, he knew there was at least a body there, again, don't think he knew his head was right there (or maybe he did) but to know that there was someone right there, why the hell would you do that?

And is reaction after, looks like he wanted to make it worse by wanting to fight...Kinda what he did with that whole Indiana/Detroit thing, he just lost it.

I hope it's enough to give the Nuggets or Mavs the upper hand during the first round.

It's well established that he has more than a few screws loose in his head. He could die in a shoot out with police or go to jail for murder and nobody would be surprised.
