I have not ever, and will not ever, pay to post on a message board. The information is top notch and I will pay for that if I needed too, but not ever to post on a message board.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Not trolling this is a decent discussion if anyone is trolling it is you.
It's epic. He even got Noah to respond. I bow down to Nigel for this thread. But I am under no illusions as to what it is.
Pretty much what I thought and that's why I don't think the whole network needs to pay for each name. I could see it working on certain boards though.
Seriously? You need to get over your issue with Woodson.
So is this thread going to result in Nigel getting banned on 247?
Wait. Noah banned Nigel. And now we are just supposed to assume Nigel woke up this morning with a wonderful idea to improve 247? And why not just pm Noah with the idea if that is what happened? Why the open letter to Noah on tBB? You don't think that's a bit disrespectful?

Why? If anything it's going to get a Mich fan temporary banned for trolling. This is a solid idea worth discussion. Don't let your hatred blind you from that.
Woodson might be trolling but this thread was not started in good faith. Its intent was to troll.
How am I trolling? I didn't violate any rules. I simply disagree with the idea and am calling out Nigel because I don't even think it is a sincere idea. When did that become trolling?
People who don't pay are worthless free loaders. Yet you say they have worth. Is this some sort of riddle.

You are about to get quoted the "don't call out specific posters" rule.
And it would still be easy as heck to change your IP address so that you can keep creating new usernames (if you get the first one free of course) and it will solve nothing.
Maybe if you get banned 5 or more times, then you start charging, but anything before is just restricting traffic. For team boards, I can get behind the idea that you have to request permission to post on the (team)board after you create your name and that will reduce a lot of trolls and still preserves the free nature of message boards.
I resemble that remark.
Obviously Nigel wasn't the only one that thought this was a pretty good idea and worth discussion. There are multiple MSU fans and multiple posters from other fanbases that like this idea. Why shouldn't we all discuss it? Nigel isn't having someone post over here to ask about his banning or complain about it. Why can't an idea that could improve the network be discussed openly?
So I can't make fun of it? I can list literally hundreds of threads on tBB in which someone suggests an idea and someone else makes fun of it. So unless I agree with the idea I am trolling?
TBB's content is user generated.
More posters = more content = better content = more controversy = more trolls = more spam = more hours of entertainment = more repeat visitors = more advertising $$$ = better website infrastructure = better reporting = better product overall
You see, you need us.
Be careful ... you don't want to get banned for trolling the idea.
Come on man you are calling out a whole board. Just stop this is how Nigel get banned and continued to do things like this to get his 8 year ban.
The idea is worth a discussion but Nigel, and his minions are trolling.
TBH I don’t think trolling is bad enough on tBB that 247 needs to start charging people to post on here. Just start banning obvious trolls.
This is a dumb idea if I have to pay to keep this.
Dude's taken a decent thread and trolled it. You've got the site's head programmer on board, as well as multiple BB mods. You think that's a trolling attempt by Nigel?
Woodson's is the worst troll left on tBB between the MSU/UM contingent. Everyone was taking this seriously till he showed up. It's the definition of trolling/thread hijacking.
tBB mods can do whatever they want; it's their board to moderate. I just made a suggestion to try and keep this thread on track.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
You also aren't a freeloader if you aren't reading anything
Yes, for about $.17 a day you can sponsor an underprivileged troll. Isn't it time you reached out? Isn't it time you made a difference? Sally Struthers thanks you. Operators are standing by.
bless his heart, somebody needs a nap
