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.

This thread is the classic SC thread in my mind. It will explain to you exactly how the site is run and at the same time most of our big posters posted in here, to help you get to know them a little better. I don't 100% agree with what I said when I posted that stuff anymore and I agree now that Poptart should have been banned, but I think it is the perfect thread to get to the boards...

Let it slide...

Long story why we left, basically we were sick of the warning system and the fact that a couple of weasels could just go around a ruin everything for everyone. There was also just too much trash talk and negativity.

But thanks for the welcome, its good to be here.

Default IMportant info about CBS

If it was a fair playing field I would agree that change was possible. It's not and I can prove it. What happened to BBP and Chargers_grl angered me so much because I had some inside information. I, too, have lost my temper a few times and used some of the seven words you can't say on television. Here's what happened to me.

The messages, which were on completely different threads at completely different times, were removed. Then I received a private message from a CBS admin that read "In deference to your high reputation and how highly you are regarded by other members, I've decided NOT to give you a warning. Please clean up the language!" I can't quote it exactly because those PMs were mysteriously removed last night.

I believe that this admin is none other than member Oh Get Real. The vocab and writing style were nearly identical to a PM that he sent to me minutes after the first CBS admin PM. I like OGR and have PMed with him a number of times since then. He's quick to send me a PM warning me that I'm getting close to the line and appealing to my better nature. I think the fact that he's fond of me got me out of warnings that others would have suffered.

This proves to me that it's not a level playing field. You all know me, I'm quick to point out preferential treatment, even if it's me being preferred. I should have done this sooner. I've used many o' slang euphemism on the CBS boards just like BBP's and they get ignored by the admins. It's not a fair playing field which means there's no amount of correcting that will make it worthwhile. IMHO

Ravenpoe convinced me to finally make the leap. No turning back now. Are any of my old CBS friends here?

I should also add that when I received that "in deference" PM from CBS, my reputation was only at 95. I was barely a superstar and in the middle of my infamous battle with Folgore71. I don't think I was very highly regarded by very many from the other side of that argument. I think OGR liked the argument because he's fond of Folgore71 and, due to my temper, his argument was looking better than mine.

You know I'm here EMAN, nice to see you made the leap. Welcome to our new home. You wouldn't believe how many have switched.

Eman,

Great to see you. They're strict about where threads belong here. You're in the football area so this will undoubtedly get moved or deleted. Look in the lounge, that's where we are.

What's up CK. Honestly, there was no choice but to jump. The boards over there are extremely dead right now. no talk about football or anything.

I've been posting here for almost four years and I have to say this might be the weirdest thing I've ever seen. And there's a lot of weird crap that goes on on this board.

Anyway, welcome to all of our refugees. I'm sure you'll enjoy yourselves here. Maybe this influx will rejuvenate the boards, which have been pretty dead lately.
