That board sucks yo
Seriously, only dumb people are bothered by trolls. Smart people choose to not read troll threads or see the humor in clever ones.
The Blue Board lacks traffic and is over moderated. It is too "clean" to truly be truly funny and is filled with too many posters that want things done "their way". (Yes, I see the irony.)
Or you followed the best recruiting content, which 247sports provides, hands down.
Damn. I come back and now it's turned into a four pager. Nice.
Please point out the quality threads on the front page right now. I see A LOT of garbage.
Trolls are only part of the problem. 3 mass exodus occasions have left very few posters worth a damn over there.
First you had the TMB Exodus. A lot of the good posters left. Then you had the original 247 exodus, and then one more 247 exodus.
You can thank certain posters from a certain fan base for the over moderation. I agree with you on that. Some people don't know what national boards are for, and none of those posters came from the MB.
Sadly, the problems in Nebraska are in the coaching offices and the fans that sit in the seats and defend them.
Place is a dump. Some of the stuff they do there is absolutely insane. I remember when a picture of Aaron Murray surfaced on the net with him having sex with a coed on spring break. They tracked down the girls name, posted all her personal information on the site, and then had losers over there calling and harrassing her on the phone and on e-mail. Also I have seen them do the same things to posters who apparently "piss off the MB" The Mods over there actaully let this go down, which is the craziest part of it all. Sure flaming and bickering goes on here, but nothing to that extent. Those guys take it way too far. I still post on the free board, college football soundoff, because they have good Mods over there, and decent posters.
The mainboard was a complete cess pool and train wreck. But it was interesting and fun because you knew what it was going into it.
The soundoff board is rivals PG-13 version of the mainboard. You can get banned there in a hurry for stuff that you could get away with on the mainboard.
This board is somewhere in between, without any real identity yet.
That was an AWESOME THREAD.
Harassing people is not what constitutes an "Awesome Thread", IMO. I remember the Auburn poster that accidentally posted a picture of himself jacking it on a webcam. No, when you are that stupid, then the abuse that you receive is warranted. THAT was a great thread. Harassing people you have never talked to and will never meet for no reason at all is poor form for a message board, and just childish.
That wouldn't have happened on the old MB. When it was actually a great board with great topics. Those guys were 100% entertainment without crossing the line.
Do you remember the guy that hid a cam in his apt, had a chick over and did her on camera without her knowing it while it transmitted live to a site, and he put the link on the mainboard so everyone on the mainboard could watch live? I kid you not. People were clipping pics from the live feed and posting them on the board. Lot of people got banned that night. Don't know if anyone reported him to the authorities, but it was a federal crime to film and transmit the live feed without her knowledge.
Tyler Durden was his name. I was over here already but someone sent me a message telling me about it so I went over and checked it out. It was weird.
My favorite was when they put that Spencer douche's number from that MTV show on the MB. Well.....#2 nothing could ever top the Gypsie thread.

Yep, he wanted to be a MB legend.
You are correct. I couldnt remember his name, but that is it. Did you know about the 17 year old kid on the soundoff board threatening a mass murder at his high school? Several reported him to the FBI. They took it serious and he was arrested for terrorist threats.
I remember hearing something about that. Glad people reported it. Especially considering the Aurora, Colorado shooting. Apparently that guy said something about it on a forum before doing it.
The original thread was disturbing. He came Back after the arrest with another creepy thread. Anyone can google Burlingame high school terrorist threat for the story.
The MB is the only thing holding you back?
TBB beats the MB ass 10 fold.
Any other questions? ;)
