Remember, that also stops a lurker/bunny from rating every one of your posts a zero. It's a trade-off that I like.

I guess so. I gave you some and then it let me give it to CK. That's kinda nice. Nobody can go around and keep hammering you with repetitve bad marks.

Plus, it's stops a large percentage of the phony, reputation seeking posts. People will post what they really think rather than what will increase their rep.

The good thing too is that reputation points really don't mean much. Until you get a large number of points, all you have is one green block. You can see the reputation ranks though in the members list. Also, you can only give out so many each day, which stops it from being overused.

Personally, I love it. I am amazed that I actually got my rating as high as I did on CBS. Like you said, not that I really cared, but it is a kind of ego thing knowing you made it so high up the charts.

I don't think he's made the jump. I think ever since uncommonsense's announcement, the furor has died down. Pity - it was never really about uncommonsense for me, but the fact that the warning system was a bunch of garbage. I'm keeping a profile on there to continue to lobby for change - or to get it banned again. Depends on how drunk I am at the time.

Silver Dragon, PPKA and a few others created accounts but then quickly made them hidden accounts. You can do that. I think they're waiting to see. The fact that SD even looked over here says something. Uncommon's confession has undoubtedly hurt the movement but as I've stated; it wasn't all about him. It's what happened to BBP and Chargers_grl and many others. It's the incredibly stupid system employed by CBS and their refusal to even acknowledge it much less address it.

I'll keep working to bring other members over because no matter what happened on CBS, these boards are superior. And they come complete with a bunch of great existing members. Just look through the existing threads and you'll see what I mean.

I agree Raven, there's some great stuff out there. I haven't posted much because I've been too busy reading trying to figure some of these guys out. This is far superior to CBS. It won't let me give out anymore reputation either. It must only allow you 10 or so in a 24 hour period. Nice.....:thumbup:

haha... A good idea would be to dig up some of the old threads and look through them to get a feel for some of the members... I will dig some of the classics up for you guys...

Welcome CK. Love your avatar.

And welcome everyone else from CBS Sportsline. We pride ourselves on trying to be a intelligent, civil place to talk sports (and other things) and most of the times we succeed. We're not a mindless smack-talk board (oh, we talk smack, but it's SUPERIOR smack! ) like ESPN or Yahoo, or any other unmoderated or loosely-moderated board.

The site's founder and admin, Marc, is pretty cool as are the moderators, except for me. I am ridiculously corrupt and demand you grovel to every point I make or suffer insanely unjust restribution. Are we clear?

Seriously, glad to have you guys. Why did you leave CBS?
